Jet Blank;3542615 said:I actually liked the fact that it didn't have a big rock ending, makes it feel much like it does on Guitar Hero II.
Casto21;3542666 said:the band themselves requested it be charted.
Casto21;3542666 said:I think it's awesome that they were that involved and cared about the charts.
Blurbia;3542641 said:While it's cool for nostalgia value, it makes it feel nothing like Rock Band.On drums, it was akward and not fun to play, at all. Just as a note - I thought the song was amazing, I especially enjoyed the placement of the energy phrases (OD phrases?), which I would've expected a good chunk of charters/people to not think about as much. Just didn't like the inconsistency with the lack of a BRE.
Xathian;3542949 said:I do fear it. Bands will expect their songs to be realistically hard, for a damn video game that people play to have fun. Then it gets peer reviewed mostly by the people who would actually pay $100 just to play test for Rock Band: The Rock Band Elitists that Gold Star 200+ songs.Meanwhile, the broad audience and the vast majority of the player base will just end up with a store full of Capiri di Diablo.
BrynCamaro;3542965 said:Ha, yeah. I can see that. I'm sure there are going to be a lot of shredfests coming up in RBN. On the other hand, there will probably be a lot of Jonathan Coulton types and less aggressive songs. It will be interesting to watch!

T-Hybrid;3543012 said:Go look at the list, there's not as many "OMG CAPRICI!" songs as you'd think going by your uber-negative assessment.
davidshek;3543049 said:Indeed. If you browse the RBN store by Difficulty, there's only like 2 songs in the top tier, and a handful in the tier right below that. The vast majority are in the middle 2 tiers.
trg007;3543325 said:There are a certain set of charting rules that *have* to be obeyed, and a larger set of general guidelines, a.k.a. bendable rules. Given that charts are being done by a bunch of different people, of course there will be differences from HMX charts. But if they're still fun to play that's all that matters.
BrynCamaro;3542800 said:I wouldn't worry about much of a change in the charting. Like I said in the other thread, I asked for no BRE to make it feel like GH2. So, yeah, it made the drums crazy, but a lot of people seem to like it. I'm sorry if anyone didn't like it. I'm sure most people will stick with the BREs. I would opt for them in other songs.

Thisnameislame;3544243 said:I haven't bought much on RBN (yet) but I can't help but noticing the drums on the Steve Vai songs have pretty bad OD and fill placement. I don't even think there's a fill after the last OD phrase on For the Love of God, and The Attitude song has OD in illogical places (on crazy fills) and seems like it doesn't have nearly enough OD or fills. Were testers so excited for Vai that they only cared about the notes themselves and forgot about OD or something?
