Skode;2777966 said:So on first impressions with some hand on experience would you so far give it thumbs up or thumbs down for presentations...the charts were always gonna be pretty much what we expected them to be save for LEGO blocks instead of normal rectangular notes we see in RB.The appeal is supposed to be around customisation (which weve not seen any off so far revealed save the odd dev saying "make your own vehicles" and the likes but if there is fun to be had with dinoasaurs invading the set then that would be cool to see but again weve not even seen any of that to date either )
T-Hybrid;2770184 said:I'm going to go ahead and repeat my question, since nobody actually tried to answer it.If the exact same game was released as Rock Band 3 with the traditional artwork instead of LEGO...would people be as deadset on it "having" to export.Because honestly, I haven't seen one decent arguement for why it should be day 1 exportable except for "Well I don't like LEGO so obviously it makes sense."
Skode;2778469 said:Personally i had never seen that video so thanks for posting ...its EXACTLY the same gameplay as RB it would appear, only difference is HMX as we already know made the notes into the shape of LEGO blocks...otherwise same starts, same overdrive activation, same vocals charting = yeah, all they would have to do at HMX to make these songs RB2/3 ready would be to change the note icons This video also reminded me just how short Song 2 was haha
west siide;2774124 said:I agree with you...but it seems that there's something going on because HMX has been particularly mum on the issue of exportability for this game.
jeccaneko;2782093 said:I feel like Lego Rock Band keeps getting pushed to the side and the limelight is being given to The Beatles: Rock Band. We haven't heard enough info yet. I STILL don't know if I want this game. At the moment, I simply have to say I'm not getting it because HMX hasn't given me enough info to get excited.
Zephiel;2782128 said:I'm alright with TBRB in the spotlight. It just means that LEGO RB will be in the spotlight after TBRB is released. I'll have a game to enjoy while I wait for another game that I'm going to enjoy.
Sayburr;2782143 said:Right, we are just now getting more info on TB:RB and it releases in just over a month... LEGO releases in November... Lots of time left.
AntarianRanger;2788892 said:Probably too late on this for it to be news, but I've uploaded four videos of Lego Rock Band at San Diego Comic Con (I was there with Black Flame Zealot). One of them (the last one) shows the neat way that, in a certain mode, the charts drop off of the screen when they have no notes.Lego Rock Band Song SelectionLego Rock Band at SDCC 1Lego Rock Band at SDCC 2Lego Rock Band at SDCC 3
General Lein979;2788936 said:Why does the song selection say rb2 and lego? Shouldn't it just say lego? I'm gonna call that Lego transfer to rock band 2/1 and rb2/1 songs transfer to lego but with the ability for a parent to block certain songs from the child playing.
T-Hybrid;2789020 said:LOL. That RB2 header is going to give people headaches for MONTHS now. But I'm still standing by my original statement (if anything becomes exportable this year it's RB2)Because I think the "LEGO" songs are marked with a Brick style icon. Which I'm using as further confirmation that this game is NOT going to export but WILL support older songs.
XTommyDonX;2789218 said:Cool video.Don't most of those song difficulty levels seem really highfor those songs?And can anyone read that section that separates So What from the rest of the song list? It looks like it says Rock Band and something after that.Edit: Read above posts. So if the heading says Rock Band 2, then why are lego songs underneath it? Very mysterious. I wish they would just give us a straight answer.
cherokeesam;2789269 said:I'd be willing to go All In and bet that the song(s) ABOVE the line are LEGO --- possibly LEGO only. That would include "So What," which is no great loss in my book if it's non-transferable to RB2. But yeah, the fact that "Rock Band 2" is the header for the rest of the songs HIGHLY indicates that those songs (A-Punk, Accidentally in Love, Aliens Exist, Breakout, In Too Deep, Song 2, The Final Countdown, You Give Love... ) will be exportable.

XTommyDonX;2789284 said:Exporting RB2 will be a foolish idea. Not enough people have it yet. Charging around $5 to export the full RB2 setlist (being that it didn't come with a download voucher) instead of making new customers fairly pay the $60 like everyone else instead of just borrowing it would make much less sense then Lego coming with a voucher/export fee.
T-Hybrid;2789414 said:The RB2 category in LEGO is just like the RB1 category in RB2. It indicates which songs are FROM the old game, not which ones are going TO the old game.
