If'n anyone would like to get the "Riding on Coattails" achievement, PM me and we can do it up! DLC owners preferred, but I'd be happy to help out any QC fans.

I have both and I still prefer guitar hero. its more of a challenge. on rock band I can play almost any song on expert. on guitar hero theres only a select few I can do. plus the guitar is wayyy better for guitar hero.

Oh Jesus lord is it ever not. Using the Guitar Hero guitar feels like I'm using a Fisher Price toy after having played with the Rock Band guitar.

Also, the Neversoft Guitar Heros are much harder, yeah, because it doesn't even feel like you're playing the songs anymore, just mashing buttons that kind of go along with the tune.

Comparing the 2 is kind of fruitless.  I mean one is a group experience with singing and drums, the other is generally duelists game.  But I do like the guitar hero guitar way more than the Rockband's mushy buttoned one, but I enjoy Rockband so much more.  Frankly I do not see any inherit nobility in playing a Dragonforce on expert, just because its hard doesn't make it fun.  Rockband on the other hand has a way better selection of songs I actually *like*.  Me playing Maps on Drums is so fucking fun even if I can only do it on medium.

Yeah, so one of my friend's brought over Rock Band a couple days ago, and long story short I've played Rock Band 8 hours a day the past two days. Drums are a pretty decent workout, and I've been getting really into them. In fact, I feel so empowered that I really want to make real drums make real loud noise. I made my character a huge Native American Drummer. His name is Captain Kickass.

Okay this will apply few and far between but after the last LAN I went to over the weekend, there were 2 rockband kits that caused three of my LAN buddies to ragequit and go home leaving us 1 down for our team with half the LAN to go, we still won both the tourneys still to play but they didn't have much fun because of the constant tapping on drum skinsover the weekend.

This is one thing NOT to bring to a LAN event, along with stuff like speakers and small children.

Ragequit is for pussy non gamers.  We call it Tunesing Out, because the only person I know who would do that was Brad "Tunes" Turner.  Its because he would get beaten like 25/3 deaths in Halo 2/3 and freak out.  He also had a penchant for stoner noise association in lieu of actual conversation.   Like someone would say Joe Mantegna, he would say banana.  Fucking annoying

they sell some pretty decent sound dampening sleeve things for the drums these days. otherwise, you can use the sockmod. (google it). it helps the heads recognize hits better, too and keeps you from double-tapping when you don't wanna.

It wasn't a game ragequit, we aren't the best of pals with the pricks that run that particular LAN but "tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap tap" gets kinda frustrating after a week solid, while the dicks doing it insisted it made no sound.

It has no place in a LAN to be honest, unless there is a separate room. I left guitar hero until everyone who didn't wanna play had gone to bed at i33 because I know how much "tica tica tica tica tica tica tica tica tica tica tica tica tica tica tica tica tica tica tica tica tica tica tica tica tica" can piss people off. There is a time and a place for brutal honesty, likewise there is a time and a place for rockband and guitar hero.

(Oh but we did make one team ragequit the CS 1.6 tourney)

I think people who play real instruments are at a disadvantage when they try to play Guitar Hero/Rock Band. Because you can't handle the controller like a real guitar, it's based on matching colors instead of hearing sounds, and basically I find it boring compared to actually playing the guitar/bass. Except for the drums, I heard the drumming is pretty similar to playing a set of real electronic drums, and that if you can master the Rock Band tracks, you'd be good enough to play with the actual band itself. (I've never played Rock Band but I have played Guitar Hero, guitar and bass player here.)

Anyway when it comes to rhythm games it is ALL about Mad Maestro.

That's completely untrue outside of Guitar Hero 3. The problem I had with Guitar Hero 3 was that it lacked any real rhythm for a rhythm game.

I play guitar and that helped me pick up Guitar Hero (In its early stages) rather easily because I had a developed sense of rhythm. I mean, yeah, don't be expecting to pick up the game and master anything on hard, but actual guitar players or any musicians, really, are at an advantage, not a disadvantage.

The real problem with transitioning to real instruments from rhythm game instruments is that when you play a real instrument, the sheet music doesn't scroll past your eyes on a screen.

Singing MC Frontalot basically consists of going "uuuuhhhhhhduhahhuhhh" because he's way too fast to keep up with, but I still love the song.

Sort of on topic, does anybody know a good site where I could put up a list of the DLC I own so it's easier to share the list with people? I currently made a blog post on MySpaz about it, but anybody who doesn't have a MySpaz account - which is some of my Rock Band playing friends - can't read it, so it kinda defeats the point.

Just looking for somewhere to put a text list, preferably where I can embed html links to YouTube vids and stuff.

i think i've got the argument sorted for anyone who says GH/RB isn't real guitar: it resembles a one string bass designed for use by the hulk.
(meant for idiots who don't know the speed of the game and are looking for a quick insult)
no offense intended, i'm both a bassist and a fan of both games, but damn if it ain't true, not that it actually matters cos if you're playing to trick yourself into thinking your good at guitar then you're an idiot, though i know VERY few people like this, do they actually exist? not to mention when you're actually playing the resemblance stops, what with the ridiculous speeds unprecedented to bassists, (or at least shit ones like me  :-P)

DLC is starting to become an excessively expensive attraction to me. It's now pretty much what I blow my disposable income on each week after going out on a Friday night.

I'm hoping Harmonix will continue what appears to be a trend of migrating Guitar Hero tracks over to RB. Old GH tracks, I mean. I uh... I really want My Chemical Romance.

Also I bought Rock Band 2. It is Rock Band 1.5, which is all that needs to be said I guess. In short it is still awesome.

Frets on Fire basically just like rock band now if you set it up that way. It's so close, you can use your PS3 or 360 controllers with it too. Grab the alarian mod and the RB and RB2 and GH3 packs and you've got basically the same games on your PC. Plus: GH3 songs with rock band notes or vice versa.

They even have the drums. (no singing, yet)

Finley - "Tutto E' Possibile"
Platero y Tu - "Hay Poco Rock 'n' Roll"
Squeeze - "Tempted"
Tokio Hotel - "Ready, Set, Go!"
All-American Rejects - "Real World"
Miranda Cosgrove - "Headphones On"
The Naked Brothers Band - "Body I Occupy"
The Naked Brothers Band - "I Don't Want to Go to School"

Those last three are blowing my mind. I don't understand.

Week after that is the No Doubt Singles Collection, a large portion of which I will be forced into buying by my female friends who love to sing but hate how few female vocalists there are.
