I was surprised to find that many of the features we've grown to love from the Rock Band series have been removed. For better or for worse?
Can we stop with these flamebait/gotcha headlines? Is this the only way to get hits.
I hate the fact that they ditched the fans singing along.... really angered me to discover that
If you play songs from RB1 ( which are included on the disc) the crowd will sing along. I tried it with Wanted: Dead or Alive. Don't know about RB2 songs though.
The rock band 2 songs work with fans, too. But the new songs on RB3 don't
it works with RB2 songs too
Gonna play this in a bit
We'll have to see how these changes effect the experience. I'm a little worried about the future of the game with these changes.
the game is fucking awesome i'm new to it, my wife wanted it, and in july I purchased beatles rock band and eventually 1,2, and 3. Being able to see my wife enjoying gaming is wonderful.
My wife and I love playing. It's great to have a game we can play together
The game is indeed awesome but these past few days the forums on Rock Band have exploded pretty much with both sides debating and asking for things to be returned or tweaked. Overall though I still think it's one of the best rock bands [in my opinion] despite losing Black Hole Sun :(
And we lost Spoonman... damn Guitar Hero took Soundgarden away from us
Wait... They didn't change the graphics at all?!? What the FRICK, Harmonix? You guys are rolling in money right now...and you don't improve the graphics, at least? *sigh* Pathetic.
They actually did...if the person actually played the game he would notice.
No. The graphics style is exactly the same. A few extra pixels don't change anything
Okay...show me a screenshot comparison if you have the game. Compare it to Rock Band 2 and Rock Band 3. *Got mine ready :P*. A few megapixels haven't changed. Megapixels determines the resolution of a camera...logic fail.
I love the game but at the same time im dissapointed. I feel this game took the series backwards. Some of the pluses are +faster loading times +character models are improved +drop in and out play +fluid navigation +character animations improved +sound is incredible negative -removal of gameplay modes for some some reason certain hairstyles no longer dual color -challenge glitches where it does not detect star power deployment -no more than one band allowed -arenas seem less impactfull -pro cymbals are very glitchy sometimes notes not detected -earning outfits and items to easy -during harmony back singers cant choose characters There might be other things but thats the jist.
they have given the graphics engine a complete overhaul actually. they even added per-object motion blur! it looks MUCH better, thats the first thing that actually struck me when i played it for the first time. personally i LOVE everything they changed about it. the new per-player menus are incredibly brilliant, the way it handles pauses in-game is brilliant, and im just itching to get my pro guitar.
sorry do you care about the graphics ??? because most of the time i'm busy looking at the song charts to notice
"Instantly, this caused me to gloat and her to throw a drumstick at me." What a prick!
It teaches you keyboard, and you complain about "fans" not singing along? wtf is wrong with people
I'm not happy it was left out, it's not like he took off many points for it anyways. he gave it a 9/10.
really really really want from Rock Band is better effin hyperspeed. Like. That's it. Yay for lots of features, and super yay for having the capability to teach someone keyboard. Really, no sarcasm. Yay for those things. All I want is just a more fleshed out breakneck speed, like GH's . That's it. Please. Thanks. Oh, and maybe for it to work in practice mode, that'd be swell too.
Normal BNS works well enough for me, and I never really find much use in practice mode. They might be able to patch in multiple BNS speeds at some point.
On GH, once I'm in practice, I like to play on hyperspeed 4. BNS is around hyperspeed 2 or 3.. And you can't change it.
Yeah, I though HMX would add a speed modifier with RB3, but I guess not. Kinda disappointing. I'm more concerned with the note chart, since it seems a bit too transparent at times and makes it kinda hard to see notes when you have all these ridiculous strobe lights and crap.
