I know that by this point I sound like a broken record, continuously babbling on about this single game, but to be honest there's nothing else that's just around the corner which is exciting me this much. My excitement reached a peak earlier this week as they announced the remaining songs from the "main set list". In short, I'm a 70's music freak and I'm getting my fix whilst having to deal with too much Fall Out Boy (which is, by the way, any Fall Out Boy).
It's a bit disappointing that there're only 58 songs on the disc. I know that sounds like splitting hairs, such as complaining about the number of maps in shooters and such, but I was hoping for just a few more. I suppose that with Rock Band having so much (alleged ) DLC coming so regularly they have saved a few surprises for that, or at least hope so.
Despite all of that though, I still hold the Rock Band list leagues above the Guitar Hero III List. I know a lot of people don't agree with that, but it all comes down to taste. You can't really argue with peoples taste, but most of us will give it a try. As previously mentioned, I love the 70's when it comes to music, and the 13 70's songs in Rock Band are generally pretty awsome. It also helps that The Who are my favourite band of all time and Rock Band comes with lashings of them.
It's still a long way off though, over here in the UK. Guitar Hero III, however, is right around the corner. 20 days, I can't wait. I have been playing the demo a lot and generally like it, but there are a few weird Hammer On/Pull Off issues which come from the way they decide which notes should or shouldn't be HOs/POs. Apart from that the game play seems great, but the character models are some of the ugliest models I have ever seen and the loading screens have changed from sometimes hilarious lessons in rock to random fabricated quotes that take those rock lessons from the previous games and put them in a the mouth of a band member. At the moment, those loading screens are not doing it for me.
That's pretty much all I came to talk about, although I am really excited for COD4 next week and then Mass Effect shortly after. It's also good to have done a blog for this thing, it's been a while. On a parting note, a few random bands I want for Rock Band DLC, most of these aren't huge hits or anything but they are a few of my more recent favourite songs that I think would be awsome.
Kings of Leon
MORE FOO FIGHTERS!!!
...and most importantly, any Dragonforce, I know GHIII has Through The Fire and Flames, but Rock Band needs their stuff more, because drums and vocals are fun too Red Octane.
With that, I'm done.
