    Kinda disappointed that there wasn't more songs from GaGa. But I guess that's alright. Some is better than none. And besides, being on PS3, I won't see them for a while anyway.

    Saddened to see no RB3 Versions of Gaga, and also saddened to see that the Legacy Pro Guitar Upgrades are being released two-by-two instead of in a big chunk. "Hot Blooded" with Pro Guitar mostly makes up for it.

    Will probably buy the entire pack. Not a fan of Born This Way, or anything off her new album, but I'm sure it'll be a request at parties.

    I actually like the Gaga pack. Her newer songs aren't that good.
    I like Born this way but her EP & first album were by far her best work.. EXCEPT....
    I wanted You & I since it's got the guitar work of Brain May in it :P

    But oh well I know how funny it'll be singing LoveGame LOL.

    Great song choices! But now that we are getting more Foreigner, how about the studio version of "Juke Box Hero"? That is one of the covers that makes me cringe.

    Agreed. Sad to see that fake Foreigner is still alive and threatening us all. Would've liked to see them killed once and for all by giving us Juke Box Hero.

    Well, Paparazzi, it's the only Lady Gaga song I've ever heard that I actually like but I DO like it so I will get that one. No interest in foreigner whatsoever.

    Well I'll just have to get all of the offerings, sans pro mode charts. More Foreigner is always awesome!

    I was really hoping for U&I, The Edge of Glory, Hair, and Bad Kids... but any Gaga is good I guess

    Obviously they wanna cater to the casual Gaga fans because they like the money she rolls in.

    Sucks too, she has WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY better songs than Lovegame. They could've done a much better job with the pack.

    YEAH! Getting the Foreigner for sure! I LOVE YOU HARMONIX

    yeah, pretty underwhelming Lady Gaga pack. not what I expected, meh. Lame that it didn't include Speechless (or Alejandro, or Telephone, or any non-semi boring song). Meh at Paparazzi and Lovegame.
  • TheDescentTheDescent Road Warrior

    Ok, so:

    about GaGa: not really a fan there, but a 3 song pack is much more appetible than a 4 or 5 songs one, Paparazzi and Born This Way are good party songs, and I don't know Lovegame (yes, I'm a little bit ignorant about pop releases);

    about Foreigner: this is a great, unexpected addition. Hot blooded is a rock classic, one of their most famous songs. Urgent... well... cool song, but I already have over 20+ songs to buy between regular DLC and RBN stuff when the PSN store will be back up, so I'll just pass it for now.

    Great week, and good upgrades for those who play pro g/b.

    No Speechless. Was hoping for Beautful, Dirty, Rich too... Like many say something is better than nothing. Foreigner is a nice surprise.

    Bleh - pure pop and old rock. Guess my taste in music falls somewhere between these two - nothing for me again >__>

    Going to get the two Foreigner songs (w/ PRO Upgrades) as well as the White Stripes and Alice in Chains PRO upgrades.

    Oddly enough, a guy at work has been pushing me to learn "Dead Leaves" via tab, so that was mighty convenient. :)

    I'm suprised. I was waiting to hate this week, but 4 pro upgrades outweighs the artist I hate.

    And this pack should prove beyond a doubt, there is no such thing as rb3 versions, for those who for some reason continue to predict more are coming.

    YES! More Foreigner and two songs I really enjoyed "way back when". I can remember singing both songs while driving my '69 Duster down the road. Yep, I will be getting them. Nice surprise HMX!

    Not sure about the Gaga songs. If people will play the songs I already own, I will purchase them when/if needed.

    Getting the Foreigner, and Born This Way (Weird Al is parodying this on his new album, and I have every songs Al has parodied that has been released in RB). Maybe Paparazzi.

    Nothing I hate, but nothing I am really super enthusiastic about this week.

    Just both Foreigner songs later on for me. I like the songs but i still have tons of stuff to buy before those. :)
    i love those mix of styles that HMX does each week. Makes more people happy.

    think I've found the pro-guitar song to get my 100% and gold star on. Dead leaves should be fairly simple....

    There are some songs which could use a "(RB3 Version)" to add harmonies and/or Keys. I would pay for the re-release of the Simon and Garfunkle songs to add harmonies to them. I would love for the Boston songs to be re-released with keys. Since HMX has done this for Bon Jovi and Queen, I would not rule out that it is possible to get more in the future.

    But, for the most part, yeah, it looks like HMX can release Pro guitar/bass upgrades to legacy songs, which is great!
