Why are you buying LRB?

edited November 2009 in LEGO: Rock Band
Even though HMX wanted to gear this towards kids of a younger age, i know plenty of us are just looking to export it and nothing more. I am one of those people that is looking for some cheap DLC and intend to throw the game on ebay as soon as the export is done. So are you buying the game for the export, for the "kid friendly atmosphere" it will put out, or both?

If you like the songs, that goes under export, if you like lego games, that goes under kid friendly, if youre buying it just to have it and play it, both? I also meant to put a "I'm not" option but i accidentally pressed submit without reading what i put down and further revisions, sorry for the confusion and cruddy poll everybody.

The both option is now considered an other option, if you pick it post why.

    I'll be the honest one here and say Im gonig to rent it hopeing for a code, and if not then ill play it just to enjoy it. I dont think its worth the buy for me but I do want to play alot of the songs.

    Because it seems to be the only way to get any more hair metal in this game.

    Its just a rent for me, since I'm on the Wii and we're not up to exportability yet. My main reason for buying it would simply be the setlist. I'm not a big fan of most of the stuff, but Bon Jovi, Foo Fighters, Ghostbusters, and JIMI HENDRIX are too good to miss out on

    New songs, new game, export, etc. I don't have kids or anything.

    Your options are a little weird... I'm buying it because I love the Lego games and I love Rock Band.

    I actually see it as expensive DLC considering the limited number of songs that are actually interesting. I'll probably wait and hope for a price drop, or for those songs to start showing up as DLC (you never know).

    I have no interest whatsoever in the game itself. It seems pointless to me.

    You forgot to add an important choice in the poll: I'm buying it because Lego is awesome.

    It's been awesome for decades (and for all ages with imagination). It's one of the greatest and most perfect toys the human race has ever invented. It never gets old. I played with it as a child, I played it with my nieces and nephews, and it has never let us down.

    Plus, the Lego Star Wars and Indy games are amazing and hilarious.

    Anyone who thinks Lego is just for kids--For crying out loud, go buy some Lego and build something! :)

    So, I voted "Both."

    I'll do it for the exports. There are a bunch of cool songs in there. I doubt those codes are available for rental. Unless the stores a dumb enough the include the originl booklet witht the rentals.

    So you're just buying the game because it is lego, no interest in the songs or anything? I doubt many people that aren't interested in Rock band will pick this game up that aren't doing it for their kids. I didn't seem that as a logical choice.

    Where's the option for Neither? I'm buying it because I'm a Rock Band Whore.

    Where's the "It's ****ing Legos playing instruments to awesome music in a combination of two of the best game series ever... WHAT MORE DO YOU WANT?" option?

    I'm buying it to play with my nephews. They are in love with the idea of rock band but they aren't allowed to play it due to the T rating. I'm really not interested in the import.

    Where's the options for "Because there'll be some new gameplay, and I just want to have some fun trying it out"?

    I mean, export is cool and all, and being kid-friendly is great. But, building your own rock pad with Lego bricks? Blowing up Lego buildings if you play well? That just sounds like it'll be a really good laugh (even before a drink or two :-) )

    Ok yes i get it i ****ed up the poll, i wasnt about to put 6 or 7 options!

    Jeez who knew grown men and women actually enjoyed legos and specifics these days:rolleyes:

    The both option is now an other option

    Good point: I forgot to mention that I do really like the track list. But no exporting for me (Wii). If I didn't like most of the songs, I would have passed. The combination of the fun, upbeat music (Crocodile Rock! I Want You Back!) and the goofy, imaginative world of Lego equals a must-buy for me. In the end, the track list is most important.

    Both.

    It'll be fun for my 7-year old, and the export will be fun with my regular RB platform.

    Needs more options.

    I'm getting the game because I enjoy playing rhythm games that utilize instrument-shaped peripherals.

    They need a Bionicle patch.... how is that for asking for something before the game even comes out?

    I want an all Bionicle Band! er..... for my kid.... yeah... thats it....

    Does he plan on exporting it? If he does, your method won't work. The code on the manual can only be used ONCE, then it is permanently invalid. So you won't be able to use it if he does, or if you do it first before telling him, then you're not too nice of a friend. :p :D

    I'm getting it for the following reasons:

    -Looks cool being able to play songs as Legos, and I loved Legos as a kid.

    -While I love RB2, I do need something new and refreshing every now and then and this game looks like it.

    -The Final Countdown

    -Jimi Hendrix

    -Summer of '69

    -Two Princes

    -Bon Jovi

    etc. etc. etc.

    Mainly for the export, but I don't plan on trading in or selling the game after the export.

    Mainly for the export but it looks enjoyable enough that I'll play it once in awhile just for something different.

    More Tom Petty is never a bad thing.
