Disappointed with Lego Rock Band on Wii

Got Lego Rock Band for Xmas...it was pretty fun at first--until I learned that I can't play anything I've downloaded. Surely there was a way to fix that, but maybe the developers were too lazy?

Beatles RB was/is sooooo good. Why couldn't you guys take a little more effort with Lego RB?

I like a lot of the songs, but I'd like to make some other setlists. This is disappointing at best.

    I was just about to say the same thing. They didn't even put in a store! I feel rather ripped off.

    Disc swapping is the way of the Wii. Get used to it.

    Sorry, I know it sucks, but you should have done some research.

    I did do my research. It said no where that there was no Store or way to import songs.

    And the Rock Band franchise takes a huge step back after the amazing Wii port that was the Beatles.

    Unless you play Guitar Hero.

    In all reality, I'm not that ticked off, I'd just like to play LRB songs in RB2.

    Except, y'know, THE OTHER THREADS HERE ABOUT WII USERS COMPLAINING ABOUT THE SAME THING.

    But these are the RB forums. We're not supposed to care or even acknowledge how much better GH is at supporting the Wii fanbase! :D

    Oh, right. Acknowledging it would make it seem like Rock Band has flaws.

    The case does not carry the red Nintendo Wifi logo. So there's your first tip.

    Second, the official presser only calls out exportation for 360 and PS3 versions of the game.

    And the fact that I don't think we should have assumed DLC/export would NOT be part of it - especially after the Wii versions of the Beatles and RB2

    The original poster has one post on the 26th, and none since then. I wonder why that is? Oh, I know, because people crapped all over him and others for a simple statement.

    Nice try, but go back and read the thread. Several users sympathized with the original OP, GrahamN8N.

    Then GrandWuser hijacked the thread claiming he was "ripped off" despite doing "research". And now he is rightfully being corrected by several users demonstrating how even a few seconds of average Internet use would've given them the info that they needed.

    Nobody is attacking the original OP. But several users are responding to the nonsense being spat out by a subsequent entrant into this thread.

    Nice try, yourself. The original original poster (I like the way you say it) made a little complaint. Then GandWuser followed up in agreement. He was treated poorly (part of the "others" in my previous statement). Using scare quotes and calling his statements nonsense which was spat out does not help your case. If I were a new user of the forums I would run away as well.

    I'm kinda ticked with how RB in general was handled on the Wii, especially with Lego RB. I've been considering lately getting an XBox 360 and all the stuff for Rock Band I have on the Wii (Obviously a pricey matter). What I'm wondering is whether Harmonix is ever going to actually make exporting available on the Wii (if/when they make RB3), or if I should just dish out the money to get the setup for the 360?

    Any thoughts?

    I personally couldn't see my way clear on buying a new console just for one game (or game series or game platform). If there were other things I was looking for, then I might do it.

    Since you resorted to a "gotchya" and a grammar attack, I will accept that you have no other point to make.

    I don't care if your a new user, or a regular user. It gets tiring to see assumptions of malicious intent on the part of Harmonix just because the complainer didn't do their homework.

    The OP was unfortunate. He got the game he wanted for Christmas, but unfortunately it wasn't what he had hoped.

    The next guy, well, he didn't bother to spend 10 seconds to look up exportation details and then blamed HMX when he didn't get what he wanted.

    Information regarding the export is readily available online. And as with the 360, Wii games have a clear label on them when they support downloadable content.

    I feel bad for the OP, I don't feel so bad for the follow up. It's cool you want to play the White Knight here, but he didn't do his homework. There's no excuse for that.

    OK we'll leave it at that, then.

    Or not. You know who it doesn't get tiring for? New people with 1 or 6 posts.

    What there really is no excuse for is firing out insults at anyone you cross paths with.

    Why does everyone think that Lego Rock Band was made my Harmonix? They only did the charts for the songs and gave Traveler's Tales the Rock Band name. This is old news and I've seen many people saying the few glitches in this game are Harmonix's fault only to be quickly corrected by another forum member.

    Or following a single user through multiple threads to single them out even though they weren't the first or the last to disagree with the OP. Which is really just more sad than anything.

    If new forum users run away because of something someone says, then they put way too much weight into what people on the internet say. I've encountered racists, sexists, 40 year old high school bullies and even level 45 dark elves and I haven't run away from the internet.

    Yes it is sad, and I'm not sure why you singled me out. You were the first to respond to me, I did not quote you until you felt the need to quote me.

    When you have an average of twelve to thirteen posts a day since you joined, you may run across the same people once in a while.

    Nobody crapped all over him. Stop trying to begging for sympathy when its uneeded.
