Rock Band 3

David should be writing this post. I’ll probably report everything wrong about our Rock Band 3 experience and he’ll have to come behind me and re-write the post, but here we go.

Last night we had a big party and some of our friends went out and bought Rock Band 3. Woo! We were all very very excited. We have a lot of musicians in our group, so they were excited about the keyboard. it took some practice, but most everyone got the hang of the keyboard eventually. We started playing it on pro-mode, so the switch to keytar took some getting used to half way through the night, even though I’d say that’s easier.

The highlights of the night were definitely Whip It by Devo and Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen. We failed Whip It about a million times but it was hysterical because we restarted the song over and over and over again. By the end, Jessica and I were pros at the harmony. We played Bohemian Rhapsody twice, once at the beginning of the night and once at the end. Both times there was a rule that everyone had to sing. It was glorious. 

The review of Rock Band 3 is as follows: It was a ton of fun to play, but we were fairly disappointed at the set list. There weren’t a lot of songs we knew, so it wasn’t as fun to play as it could have been. Also, to add your Rock Band 2 songs to Rock Band 3 you have to spend 800 gamer points. Even after you spend that money, your old songs don’t have any harmony, keys, or pro-modes. Sad. There are Rock Band 3 versions of a very few of the Rock Band 2 songs, but you have to buy those as well. Hopefully enough people will be upset about this that by the time David and I buy/get Rock Band 3, we won’t have to pay o wazoo ut the just to play the songs we already have…

All in all, we had a fun night, but we’re planning to wait a while to get the game because we want more options and more song we know.

P.S. Pictures in the Picasa album are coming soon.
