I'm assuming it'll still tell me it's been used and I'll have to go the email route, but I won't be able to verify till this evening.

Perhaps this is the problem? Maybe you should try singing next time

Damn, that's probably it. I don't even have Kinect, so I'm not sure what I was thinking.

Re: The Official Rock Band Thread of Music Game Evolution

Has anyone else felt that it is easier to fail out in RB3? I felt like it was this way with pro drums since I first got it. I noticed there is a growing thread on RB.com and HMXThrasher replied that they are aware of this and looking into it. When I first noticed this, I thought it might of been something specific with either pro drums or just pro mode in general, but people in that thread seem to be talking about all instruments. However there are of course plenty of others saying it seems exactly the same.

I *really* want those Spinal Tap shirts for my band. I just wish they were unlockable by a goal or achievement. There's no way I'm paying for clothing. (Unless I have a drunken moment of weakness.)

I'm probably alone in all this, but I think I enjoy the RB2 setlist more as far as how fun songs were for drums.
Not sure how many of the songs I've played exactly (doing exclusively road challenges for now), but the only song so far that I've absolutely 100% hated was HIM. Totally lifeless song and it just sucked all of the energy out of the room. It has the dubious distinction of being the first song to get 1 Lighter.

I probably just need to buckle down and play the ones I don't want to try. I've only given maybe a few 1 lighter's so far, and then maybe 3-5 2 lighters, but the majority of them are only getting 3. One that I've enjoyed the most on drums so far is the Primus song. Du Hast is pretty fun too, even though it's really easy. Oh My God is pretty great too.

Unlockable by spending $2 in MS Points.

Really? When I was scrolling through them I thought there was a goal attached.

I thought it was just me sucking at the game after not playing RB2 for a while. But perhaps there is something more to it. After having the game for two weeks, I still find myself almost failing out on expert tier 6 guitar solos that I had no problems with in RB2.

I think there are some Band shirts that cost money and some you can unlock, but I'm not sure which are which.

I finally picked up a PSN $20 card today so I could do the RB2 export, and I came home to find out that the PlayStation network is down for maintenance until 7:30. Great.

My guess is either John Lennon is next week, or some of the random singles like Cage the Elephant that were rumored.

I'm reserving final judgment until all the online functionality begins to work, but until then I'd definitely say if you enjoy the RB franchise this is a game you should be playing.

Yes please. With the last few weeks of larger packs/albums and the stuff coming up I'd love to get some single offerings. (And especially No Rest For The Wicked. )

Re: The Official Rock Band Thread of Music Game Evolution

I would rather have them surprise us with updates to about 100 old DLC tracks in which they added Pro guitar and/or keys. I would gladly pay a buck a piece to update a ton of my old music to play pro guitar on. I don't like anything on the RB3 disc enough to want my pro guitar yet, but I would kill for one if they updated a bunch of old top selling DLC!

Well if The Final Countdown isn't the first song updated for keys I'm going to be as angry as everyone in the Rock Band forums is for whatever reasons they're so angry for.

Is the pro-guitar out yet? Outside of keys support, what would be the point of updating a ton of DLC next week when no one could use it?
