RockBand for Wii

Post by mariofanatic166 on Mon May 26, 2008 1:24 am

Ok, this game looks so freakin' awesome! At first, I thought that Guitar Hero was awesome, but instead, I want RockBand now! The official release date is June 22. (Only in the US) Plus, the Wii version offers 5 extra songs that aren't on the PS2, PS3, or Xbox 360 versions. The Wii version of the game was officially announced on January 31, 2008 by Electronic Arts CEO John Riccitiello. What really sucks though, is that it costs $170.00! I can see why, beacuse it comes with, the guitar, the drum set, and the microphone. But still, that alot! I only have $20.00 at the moment, so I have to save $150.00 in less than a month! Sad



Each instrument is represented by a different interface: bass guitar (left), drums (middle), lead guitar (right), vocals (top). The Band Meter (green meter on left) measures the performance of each band member, while the Energy Meter (gold meter beneath each interface) tracks each player's Overdrive.

I have it for the PS2, but the entire set for the PS2 was $180. And the PS2 is getting an expansion, while the 360 & PS3 can both download new songs.

and the game is fun, but the set only comes with one guitar, when there is also a BASS part in the game, si, you end up having to buy another guitar.

I bought everything seperatly. I use a GH3 Guitar, the Rock Band Drumset, and a Logitech Mic. , they all work fine, but I'm planing on getting the expansion, when it comes out, and the actual Fender StratoCaster Guitar controller later.

NOTE ~ GH3 Guitar Controllers work for Rock Band, but Rock Band's Guitar Controller DOES NOT work on GH3 Exclamation

So you have GH3 and RockBand?! Can I borrow any money per chance? Razz That is strange how RockBand guitar will work for GH3 and GH3's guitar won't work. If you really wanna see a drum expert on RockBand, watch this!



This guy is a RockBand drums pro! He has tons more videos! His youtube channel is:

Its not that hard if you actually know how to play the drums. It also helps that he has a chair.

GH4 is gonna be bad IMO, there's to many Guitar Heroes. What's happened to Pokemon, will happen to GH soon. Plus, how can they call it Guitar hero, if it's not gonna only be GUITAR? >.<

But ya, Rock Band is more Entertaining with friends, and the Drums are easy, especially if you have some experiance with drums Razz.
And ya, seats, will make a huge difference Mudkip

BTW, Welcome!
