I believe the ROCK BAND sticks are size 5A... I would suggest that or 5B. I switch between 5A and the ProMark 747.

If memory serves, the Rock Band kit comes with 7A sticks. I second the recommendation for 5B though. MUCH easier to play with.

I have like three pairs of sticks from different sets. I'll send you one if you want. Can't be too expensive to ship drumsticks...

Of course, they're PS3 sticks so you might experience drastically increased load times and they just might not play DLC on Tuesday. But other than that, they're just as good. And they're free.

If you do mail them you need to use a wood burning kit to burn prominent PS3 exclusive logos onto the sticks! :lol:

Just got an email from Amazon saying Lego Rock Band has moved up a week to Nov. 3. :banana:

I assume in an effort to prevent Band Hero from getting a week jump on them like GH5 did on the Beatles.

That's odd. Everything I've seen has always had the release date as 11/3. The I saw something like two weeks ago mentioning it was getting pushed back a week to 11/10, and people speculated it was to avoid being lost to Band Hero. Now apparently, everything is back on track. :cool: Good deal!

Where'd you hear about this?

However, upon closer inspection, you may be on to something. The back of the box shows the only internet-equipped feature as the Music Store. Kinda lame if this is the case, seeing as it's basically a re-skinned RB2.

Do we even know that though? It could still be based on the RB1 engine like all the track packs.

John Drake from the Destructoid preview (http://www.destructoid.com/preview-lego-rock-band-151712.phtml):


As for the LEGO side of things, Drake told me that “We’re doing a couple of things to keep it distinctly LEGO and distinctly Rock Band, but they are also two great tastes that taste great together.” (Yes, he actually said that.) At its core, LEGO Rock Band is a Rock Band 2 re-skin, but Traveller’s Tales has done a great job of infusing the music game with the tried-and-true LEGO charm, which you may be familiar with from games like LEGO Indiana Jones and LEGO Star Wars.

10-15-09, 07:20 AM
are all the track packs on RB1 engine? I know AC/DC is, but thought the newer ones might be on RB2. I haven't played them, but I know for instance the PS3 track packs now have Trophies. And their excuse for AC/DC not getting trophies was that it was on the RB1 engine.

Shagrath
10-15-09, 07:25 AM
All the track packs released thus far are RB1 engine. I've got AC/DC, Country, and Metal. And they're all in the RB1 engine, which kind of sucks.

Anyone else bummed about the rumored no online play for Lego RB?

Sucks, but not a deal-breaker for me. $50 for 45 new songs, new experiences, ways for my kids to play, and achievements is fine. If I want to play these songs online I'll just do it in RB2.

I'm sure it would be nice to show off your Lego rockers to friends online.

Shagrath
10-15-09, 07:35 AM
No online means more bitching about achievements because a lot of people don't have local buddies that can play well enough.

pinata242
10-15-09, 07:36 AM
Only 1 achievement that would be affected by that this time:

Practice Makes Perfect 50G
All four band members score 100% notes hit

Doesn't say what difficulty, though, and with the new Super Easy mode, it may be very doable with just 2 other people - assuming Super Easy singing is all Talky.

A lot of the development was handled by Traveler's Tales. Harmonix provided the songs and the charts and probably some of the basic framework of the game, but TT handled a good bit of it. I don't know who's to blame for the no online. However, since all 45 songs can by exported, it's not a huge deal for the most part.

jdpatri
10-15-09, 09:25 AM
I'm assuming it was a conscious decision based on trying to make L:RB as kid friendly as possible. Those Online interactions, you know. The rest of us can just bring those songs into RB2 to play online should we feel the need.

If the only drawback is that we can't share our Lego Rockers with the world, it's really no big deal. :shrug:

To be fair, most of us play on the 360 and therefore actually have other people to play with. You wouldn't understand.

:lol: ;)

However, since all 45 songs can by exported, it's not a huge deal for the most part.

Not the end of the world, but it is definitely disappointing. Part of my draw of Lego RB is getting to play in the Lego style and format, not just getting 45 new songs. I have a bunch of fiends who feel the same way and are getting the game. To know that we can't all get together and have fun with it together is a huge bummer.

So next week we have the 60's covered with the Beatles and the 70's(+early-early 80's) covered with Queen. Does that mean we'll finally see some decent 80's(Skid Row, Tesla, Def Leppard, Poison) stuff in a week? 90's(Cake, Soul Asylum, Collective Soul, 7 Mary 3, Live, Candlebox)?

10-18-09, 11:15 AM
I checked availability online on Target's website. Only a few places around me showed them in stock. I know that my closest Target never carried it, even on day 1 (I'd gone and checked).

So I called a couple stores showing in-stock this morning; one said they had it but it was $30, the other said they had it and it was $20. So I drove to that store and found it on the big Pearl Jam/Backspacer end cap in the music section. Yes, it's in a DVD case. The shelf tag read $29.99, and there was no clearance sticker or sale sign anywhere, but it did ring up as $19.99.

Makes me wonder if the first place I called was selling it for $20 also, but the employee just went by the shelf tag price...

God, I hope I can export today's Queen pack to Lego RB and play all those songs that way. How great does that look?

As an aside: Why did I have to watch a country-western commercial for Cotton before that clip? Does cotton really need to advertise at all? Are people buying polyester boxers and briefs at an alarming rate or something?

I'm really not a fan of charting other instruments to guitar either. If they would add a keyboard, that would take care of many of them, because you can assign different sounds to it. I mean, even things like horns being assigned to a keyboard wouldn't be unreasonable (even if real horns were used in the song).

My proposal for a keyboard would involve 2 "highways," side by side. The keyboard controller would have 3 white and 2 black keys for each hand, with a solid block of "keys" in the middle to give you some distance between your hands (like how the guitars appear to have frets in the middle, but they're not buttons). I think that would be simplified enough for a casual game, yet realistic enough that it kind of feels like you're playing the instrument.

Unfortunately, unless they can shrink down the highways it might crowd out a player, and I don't see them doing anything that cuts it down to 3 players in a band.

I'm a kinda disappointed with their choices for Queen songs for Rock Band:

"Another One Bites the Dust"
Good choice, especially for bass - not much for the guitars though.

"Crazy Little Thing Called Love"
Mostly an acoustic song with a clean electric solo - doesn't make for a great RB track

"One Vision"
Lame song - pretty much any Queen post "The Game" is lame.

"Fat Bottomed Girls"
Fantastic song, fantastic choice - they need more songs like this one.

"I Want It All"
See "one vision"

"I Want to Break Free"
ugh - I hate this song - see "one vision"

"Killer Queen"
great song, but besides an awesome solo, it's pretty much a piano song

"Somebody to Love"
see "killer queen"

"Tie Your Mother Down"
good rockin' song, but queen has much better to choose from

"Under Pressure"
Similar to "AOBtD" it doesn't have much for guitars


Such a missed opportunity. Songs like "Stone Cold Crazy", "Brighton Rock" and countless others (not to mention gems like Bohemian Rhapsody or Liar) would make for much, MUCH better RB tracks, but they went with uninteresting singles instead. Maybe they're waiting for a dedicated Queen game, but that's gotta be a ways off, if it ever even happens.

They just offered the Queen songs they thought people wanted, rather than what might work best for the game. (Except for the one they're probably saving for RB3, that is.) I can't really argue with that approach, because it is a business, after all.

That said, I'm looking forward to "Somebody to Love" and "Under Pressure," if only for vocals.

Yes, heaven forbid some of us should enjoy music from a talented band after 1980.

There's no keytar peripheral? Like the gripes from that Rock Band forum thread, it takes me out of the song because it is not a part written or performed for the guitar.

When I hear the organ solo on Smokin', I picture a guy playing an organ, not a guitar.

You just need to upgrade your perceptions, when you are playing the organ solo you can either imagine you are playing a keytar or that you are triggering those sounds on a guitar synth. Or just focus on having fun and enjoying the game ;)

The 'guitar' controller is way more like playing a keyboard than a guitar anyway, really. If anything we need a more guitar-like guitar controller IMO.

Exactly. Harmonix's very goal was to simulate the performance of music. Charting other instruments to guitar in the name of "fun" goes against that, IMHO.

How about we chart the guitar parts to the drums, or vice-versa? Would that be good? What if your favorite sports game decided to switch the ball for a grenade? How about we give everybody a jetpack in Call of Duty? Those things might make the games more "fun," but fans would be pissed at the lack of realism. I know that every game has a line between realism and fun, but Devilshalo and I just think that line stops at charting other instruments. Others can disagree.

Thing is, you are talking to an actual musician and you are telling me what is more realistic? Musicians (and Harmonix) know more about this subject.

Yeah, this is why I prefer playing the drums than guitar in these games.

Still, you have to balance being able to have fun playing the songs vs. the added cost/not likely to happen soon keyboard controller.

It would be ideal for them to add a keyboard instrument, but we just have the guitars and drums now, so they have to make do with what they have.

As for the song selections...I'm looking forward to playing all of these once I get around to buying them. Hopefully these will do well enough for them to release more stuff like they were talking about with the Beatles stuff. Maybe this is how they are planning to handle artists that can't support a full game? Just put out track packs with a few good songs in each one with some filler to spread out the purchases and increase sales? I guess the plus side of this is it may make getting some of the more obscure songs more likely than if they were to do all the really big hits in the first few song set releases.

I really need to get some more points.

I'm not saying that at all. I'm simply questioning the basis of your requirement for 'realism'.

For example if a (good) band plays live, they will cover all the important parts of a song even if there are instruments missing versus what was on the studio recording. That is a 'realistic' part of being in a band situation. Furthermore, as someone who has been triggering samplers and synthesizers with a real guitar for over 10 years, I have a whole additional perspective on what is 'realistic' since I could play with any sound on a real guitar anyway...

It seems that your preconceived notions are getting in the way of your enjoyment in these cases. I think that can easily change, if you are willing to let it by learning that what is 'realistic' may not be as straightforward as you think anyway.

My point is why bother with the plastic guitar at all.

You seem to be implying the only difference between the controller and the 'plastic guitar' is for show, but nothing could be further from the truth. Playing that kind of game on the controller sucks. It was a clever idea to make a more ergonomic controller that is shaped like a guitar, as history clearly shows, but don't get locked into taking it so literally. It's nothing like playing a real guitar, so the 'realism' was already blown coming out the gate. Pressing buttons is the least guitarlike thing you could possibly do.

Rock Band 3 idea...

Premise: Online World Stage play. Everyone from around the world playing the same songs all at once on a super exclusive stages/arenas. Songs and set lists and stages are chosen by HMX each day.

Getting to the World Stage is thru invitation only.
Move up the ranks to the World Stage by playing on local and regional stages first.
Earn song downloads, super fans, super money, super stats, special icons, special clothes, instruments, etc. by playing in these events and moving up the ranks.

This system should be geared for everyone to play and fun factor, not just exclusively for expert or skilled players to show off and dominate.

Invites can be completely random, or based on skill, choosing a special song, or simply by wearing clothing of the day (Jeans Day), or HMX own choice. The more you play local and regional stages the greater your chances of getting noticed for an invite. Once you get a World Stage invite you can play on it any time afterwords. You can play and rank as much as you want. Rankings stored are weekly. Once you have attained a top ranking you are de-listed so others can rank. Non-ranked players take precedence over previously ranked players. The goal is to find NEW talent to bring to the World Stage not to have people dominate the rankings forever.

World Stage play is everyone playing the same songs all at once earning super bonuses together. Imagine 100,000 players all playing the same songs at the same time. The more playing at once the higher the bonuses. The better you play as a group the better the bonus. Local and regional stages play the same way but on a smaller scale. Songs and set lists are chosen at HMX headquarters. Players do not get to choose songs.

Thinking about next week's DLC. I know it's too much to expect some Halloween themed stuff, but I'm hoping we finally see that Snoop Dogg stuff they teased us with so long ago. Seems like a perfect time with the parties coming up for that.

Actually, Snoop has a true new album coming out on Dec. 8th. That's probably more likely than next week, if any time soon.

Rock Band Network isn't either. It's just a name, part of RB3 as I stated in my previous post.

Not that it matters since the title of the "game" means nothing. The engine is done. Minor enhancements and tweaks here and there. The library is what's important.

But, now that you mention it, I would buy a $5/$10 downloadable XBLA/PSN/WW title called "Rock Band: Backstage" if it was just a lobby like that.

Oh, come on. I was the one getting the change of venue to Seattle from Vancouver because it would be closer and give me one more reason to go. But if you're gonna be like that, I'll just leave you to your tears and I'll enjoy Canananada.

One thing I want from RB3 is a online lobby. I just want to join up with my instrument of choice and see bands forming, maybe with % matches of my library to their libraries.

Also I want to see my friends' status showing what instrument they're playing.I want to be able to print up flyers that say "Metal band needs Vocalist" and have my phone number written on little tags at the bottom that people can rip off and then prank call me with.

No SDHC. The only 4 GB SD card that I've been able to find is this one:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820208411&cm_re=4_gb_sd-_-20-208-411-_-Product

The only problem is that you have to "trick" the Wii into using it. Start the Wii and RB2 with a 1 or 2 GB SD card and enable SD support in the game when prompted. Then take the card out, and put in the 4 GB card. You only have to do this once, as long as you don't disconnect power to the unit. If you do, you'll just have to retrick it again.

I have two of these cards and don't have any problems otherwise.

I may pick up Dragula. I liked Morningwood's first record but haven't thought about them in a while, so I didn't even know they had a new record coming out - depending on how those sound I may pick them up too.... Wolfmother I'm on the fence about, like a few of them but not sure if it's worth the points for the amount of times I'd actually play them and Liz Phair is a definite skip. I like seeing a week with 11 tracks, it's just too bad I'm not 100% in for any of them.

This is why I generally do not like podcasts. I can get my information much faster by just reading an announcement or article. I don't need the back-and-forth of a conversation added in.

I'm not sure how this works. I understand turning in a unique code to the publisher to get code to redeem with the content controller (MS, Sony, Nintendo).

Pre-ordered it at Amazon for $44.99 with free release day shipping.

Most people seem to be treating it as a glorified track pack rather than a full-fledged game.

The Best Buy ad for next week has leaked, and it does not feature Lego Rock Band....:sad:
Maybe this is due to the release date change? Band Hero IS featured prominently....

That's what I was afraid of. :(

Hopefully it's just due to the date switchups back and forth. BestBuy.com lists it as 11/3, so I'm assuming it's all good!

Activision moneyhats? Could also be that Band Hero has a "full band" edition that they need to hype?

I think the date switching decision was made too late for anyone to change their ads, as the full Target ad has leaked too, and again only Band Hero is featured, no listing for Lego RB.....

Had anyone seen this article on Shacknews?

The plan for a new band-specific Rock Band game may have been spoiled by The Who lead singer Roger Daltrey, who stated in a new interview that the legendary group is getting the Harmonix treatment next year.

"They're going to be doing a Who one next year," said Daltrey to Masslive, in giving his thoughts on this year's The Beatles: Rock Band.

"There is one planned," he added. "[The idea] is fabulous."

While the default assumption is that the aged rocker was referring to DLC, The Who has already been featured as Rock Band DLC several times. Harmonix has said nothing, of course.

If anything, its probably just going to be something like the AC/DC or Pearl Jam track packs.

Frankly, there's not enough extra Who (or Queen) content out there for me to care about a stand-alone title or track pack.

I love the Who and would probably snag everything i could get. I also love the idea of a full game celebrating a band's catalog with all the historical stuff (like the Beatles) but i hate the idea of a bunch of splintered releases... especially if they don't export.

Fail.

Tommy in its entirety would be an instant purchase. Forgot which podcast(CAGcast?) I heard it on but Tommy with Beatle-esque dreamscapes would be :drool:

More Foo next week for DLC. Here's to hoping for The Best of You!

I love Tommy as much as the next guy but it isn't enough to carry the game. Plus there's already an entire dreamscape for the album on DVD. If they didn't already have 14(?) songs in the library, I'd be all over it.
