That is an old announcement and all of those songs have already been released. They don't even note FF songs in releases anymore.

"Say You'll Haunt Me" has the upgrades.

He was referring to an old announcement that was mistakenly posted.

I have to agree. I always liked Bowie, but never was a huge fan. Still, I bought the whole pack beacuse they were all ongs I liked and I honestly had more fun playing them than I expected.

Actually, after playing them, "Modern Love" became my Signature Performance on the RB website.

By song title recognition alone, the only one I think I know is "London Calling" and probably the only one I'll get, but this is a huge announcement. I know people have been asking for this album since RB1.
post #5801 of 6042
You might recognize "Rudie Can't Fail" from various soundtracks & pop culture sources.
post #5802 of 6042
Thanks for that link about gameshark. They have a "buy 1 proT fender guitar get a free precision bass promotion".

So I got both for $157 after shipping.

Pretty good deal since amazon sells the ProT's for $140 by themselves.

Hopefully Pro guitar mode is as entertaining as keyboards and drums.

After listening to the whole album I can definitely say that I've never heard any of the other songs, including the one you mentioned, besides "London Calling" and "Train in Vain".

That's okay, I really need to cut back on my DLC spending anyway.

I need a guitar as I just bought the Rock Band 2 drums when they were on sale and have only been using them or a mic when I play Rock Band. For 60 bucks are these Telecasters highly recommended or is there a better guitar for around the same amount?

I think that people like the Tele. The only issue is that it lacks auto-calibration sensors, but if you've got an old RB2 guitar which can do that (or like to manually calibrate), then it wouldn't be a problem.

Waayyyy dissappointed about the Bob Marley song release last night.
I was hoping they'd RB3 enhance the current RB2 songs (like they did w/ Queen).

instead there's 5 or 6 unpopular songs.

Fortunately, unpopular does not necessarily mean bad. There's a lot of unpopular music that's much better than the popular stuff.

There are some good tunes in the new Marley release IMO.
post #5810 of 6042
"Kaya" was the only song I recognized and the only one I bought. Love the song, but it's unfortunately a boring, repetitive affair, chart-wise. I tried the expert guitar chart (just some rhythmic chord stumming) expert bass chart (slightly more interesting but still repetitive) and expert 5-lane keys on guitar controller (probably the most interesting, but still...).

With people sing harmony, it'd probably be a fun, if unchallenging, party tune, but I don't have RB parties. Oh well .

A bit of a surprise today, well, actually a couple surprises.

Quote:


Please note: The content releasing this Friday, Feb. 11 will take the place of content that would have released Tuesday, Feb. 15.

Available on Xbox 360, Wii and PlayStation®3 system (Feb. 11):

• Animotion – “Obsession”
• B.o.B. (featuring Hayley Williams) – “Airplanes”
• Bonnie Tyler – “Total Eclipse of the Heart
• The Human League – “Don’t You Want Me”
• Lady Antebellum – “Need You Now”
• Meat Loaf – “Paradise by the Dashboard Light”
• Stevie Nicks – “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around” X

(All tracks are original master recordings)
(These tracks will be available in Europe on PlayStation®3 system Feb. 11)

These tracks will be available for purchase as individual tracks and as “February Heartache Duets’ Pack” on Xbox 360, PlayStation®3 system and Wii. Tracks marked with “X” will include Pro Guitar and Pro Bass expansions for $0.99 per song.

Price:

$1.99 USD, £.99 UK, €1.49 EU (160 Microsoft Points) per song
$2.00 USD (200 Wii Points™) per song
$0.99 USD (100 Wii Points/80 Microsoft Points), £0.59 UK, €0.79 EU per song for eligible Pro Guitar/Pro Bass upgrade
$10.99, £5.99 UK, €8.99 EU (880 Microsoft Points, 1100 Wii Points) for February Heartache Duets’ Pack

** Dates for Rock Band game tracks are tentative and subject to change. **

A surprise on multiple accounts because we're getting this DLC on Friday and don't have to wait until Tuesday. In addition, these are AWESOME songs.

The other surprise announcement today was with regards to Guitar Hero. They are done. Activision will no longer be producing anymore Guitar Hero games and via a Twitter "tweet", after the announced February DLC is released they will no longer release anymore DLC. So it looks like in the RB/GH battle, Harmonix and Rock Band have won.

Now a little scary thing is that we can't really tell how this will impact Harmonix and what they will do in the future. Will they continue to produce games and DLC? Will they too pack it in and stop producing games and DLC? (After the recent layoffs, you have to wonder if that is indeed their future) Or will they just cease making disc-based products and just release DLC tracks only? No matter what, it will be interesting to see.

so I wonder if we'll get some of the songs back that we have lost (Soundgarden oasis... etc?)

As well as some of the bands we didn't have access to (Aerosmith, Eagles, Van Halen, etc.)

Oh, and I am loving this week's selection.

Nice DLC announcement today!!! I'm in!
post #5816 of 6042
Alright, guys. I think it's time for me to make the switch to Rock Band. The dropping of the Guitar Hero series was the nail in the coffin, but other issues were leading me that way regardless (Warriors of Rock's broken online system for PS3 being a major component). Any tips for getting the most add-on content (exports) for the cheapest price? I'd like to jump right in with a large library like I have with GH. I have enough plastic instruments so I'm good there. I have the GH drums which I like quite a bit, but the charting on the RB3 demo seemed weird when I was playing on medium. Please chime in here if you play drums with the GH kit for any suggestions (I've spent too much money on controllers to switch them all over at this point). I look forward to seeing you online

Be aware that although you can buy a used copy of the first game to get its tracks, you'll want to buy RB2 and the Lego game new. They come with unique codes for the exports that can only be redeemed once. The same thing goes for the Green Day game if you want that.

The Beatles game is really good, but bear in mind it's completely standalone. The tracks on the disc and for download require that particular disc to play.

First, don't buy a copy of RB1--you can export the tracks for $5 from any copy, so borrow or rent one. All of the other games whose tracks can be exported (Rock Band 2, Lego RB, Green Day RB) require a code which comes in the package which can only be used once for exporting. Those games have been out for a while and can be bought at bargain bin prices--right now I see PS3 LRB for $16.60, RB2 for $16.74 and GDRB for $19.50 on Amazon. You get 83 songs with RB3, 52 with RB1, 79 with RB2, 45 with Lego and 44 with Green Day, for a total of 303, if you bought those. There's also a pack of bonus tracks for RB2 which I believe that you can get without buying RB2 now (we didn't get them until a couple of months after RB3 released).

The Beatles RB tracks are not exportable from the game (which itself is very, very, very good if you're a Beatles fan). There are a few track packs on disc but I don't know about those.
post #5819 of 6042
I'm still waiting for my copy of RB3 to show up, but I've got a few others in the works. Green Day, Lego, A/C D/C pack, and volume 2. There are some good deals on the older stuff.

First, the weekly DLC
Quote:


Available on Xbox 360, Wii and PlayStation®3 system (March 1):

Terrible Lie
Head Like a Hole X
Sanctified
The Only Time

(All tracks are original master recordings)
(These tracks will be available in Europe on PlayStation®3 system March 2)

These tracks will be available for purchase as individual tracks and as Pretty Hate Pack 01 on Xbox 360, PlayStation®3 system and Wii. Tracks marked with X will include Pro Guitar and Pro Bass expansions for $0.99 per song.

Price:

$1.99 USD, £.99 UK, 1.49 EU (160 Microsoft Points) per song
$2.00 USD (200 Wii Points) per song
$0.99 USD (100 Wii Points/80 Microsoft Points), £0.59 UK, 0.79 EU per song for eligible Pro Guitar/Pro Bass upgrade
$6.99, £3.49 UK, 5.29 EU (560 Microsoft Points, 700 Wii Points) for Pretty Hate Pack 01

And now the G/B pro upgrades!:
Quote:


With the release of the Rock Band 3 Fender Squier Stratocaster Guitar Controller next week and with the Fender Mustang PRO-Guitar Controller already out in the world we thought Rock Band fans might like more Pro Guitar songs to master. On March 1st we'll release Pro Guitar / Pro Bass Upgrades for a bunch of previously released tracks, some of the most popular in the RB library. Check out the list below:

Available for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii on March 1st

* Blink 182 - Dammit
* Boston - More Than A Feeling
* Creedence Clearwater Revival - Bad Moon Rising
* Creedence Clearwater Revival - Fortunate Son (Original Version)
* Eve 6 - Inside Out
* The James Gang - Funk #49″
* The Knack - My Sharona (Cover Version)
* Lynyrd Skynyrd - Simple Man
* Metallica - And Justice for All
* The Offspring - Self Esteem
* Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble - Pride and Joy

These Pro Guitar / Pro Bass Upgrades will be available for $0.99 each. You must own the original DLC track in order to purchase and play the Pro Guitar / Pro Bass Upgrade. For more information about Pro Guitar and Pro Bass upgrades, visit our support section. Rock Band 3 Pro Mode requires Rock Band Pro-compatible instrument controllers.

There are some great tracks there, and since I am getting the Squier (pre-ordered) I am really excited about this, I've been hoping we'd see some legacy pro upgrades without having to re-buy RB3 versions! Hopefully this isn't the only time we see this, it'd be nice to have a trickle of Pro G/B upgrades for the many outstanding legacy tracks that are already out there.
