Rock Band NDA Lifts - Information Overload

GWN just received an email from Rock Band's PR firm. Attached to the email was a word doc containing tons of new and exciting details about the game, including new screenshots and the game logo. Here's a small taste from the full article:

"Drumming in the spotlight! Showcase a real drum solo with Rock Band's freestyle drum fill windows featured in each song. Break out your own rhythm and style as anything goes!

Call out the crowd! Vocalists can bring the crowd to their feet during Rock Band's freestyle vocal fill windows. Ad-lib your own words or shout to the crowd to raise the rock intensity of the performance.

Save your mates! Band mates can fail out of a song for poor performance, but the band still plays on. Rescue your failing mate by busting out signature moves and blistering solos to wow the crowd with showmanship.

Boost your bonus! Earn bonus points for your band during Rock Band's Unison Phrase opportunities if everyone plays perfectly. A single mistake blows the phrase for everyone." (PS3, Xbox 360)

Damn I can't wait for this game! I just wish I could play GH 2 on my ps3 it just teases me and sits in the corner collecting dust. November can't come soon enough.

Can't Wait!!
I think I was in the same boat as most people and was seeing Rock Band as a complete rip-off of GH, just making people buy the extras.

Now I know more about the game, I just can't wait and will probably end up buying the new wireless guitar and the drums.

All I want now is some sort of Setlist!!!

Yeah the track list for this game I bet is going to be amazing. IGN had an article where they had a hands on and they got to play 6 songs and 4 of them were master tracks and MTV said they are going for as many master tracks as they can. But with downloadable songs to come after release I can see the track list being as large as you want it to be (or depending on the size of your wallet).

This sounds absolutely amazing, especially for those wanabee rockstars who have no talent whatsoever and have to live their dream through a game - ME!!

I think creating a band online and touring sounds mindblowingly good - I can't wait to get my hands on that Fender so I can belt out some Iron Maiden at Madison Square Gardens

Finally up again!! Not a lot of new news there. However it does mention some surprises as far as Bass goes. Also, the drum pedal is confirmed to have some resistance to it, which is awesome.

for the first time in my life!! Can't wait for an evening with friends, some drinks and this game.

Those who are about to rock, salute you...(Jack Black, School of Rock)

If Red Octane charged an arm and a leg for downloadable songs I don't even want to think about what EA will charge.
Adamalicious  +   2565d ago
You can't just blame Red Octane for that. Though the EA proposition is scary.
Lyberator  +   2565d ago
Publisher sets the price so yeah I'm pretty sure I can blame them. Them and Activision.

Thats it. Im going to rob a back since I HAVE to get full Rock Band package. If they keep up the good work, it will be 10 times the fun and addictiveness of Guitar Hero (A masterpiece on its own). A Rock Band with friends would be something. Cant wait.

Yeah I have always wanted to play the drums but never have and now I finally get the opourtunity. Supposedly if you can play the songs in drum mode on hard you have the ability to play the drums for real (skillwise anyways).
