    What?! No "Speechless"?!?! HARMONIX Y U TORTURE ME *cry*

    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, 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.

    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!

    Definitely getting Born This Way (sure to be a party favourite) and Hot Blooded (same reasoning)

    YES! YES! IT'S MY BIRTHDAY! FOREIGNER FOR THE WIN!

    "Urgent" is going to demolish my speakers and completely destroy my voice, and I'm going to love every minute of it!

    Now can we please, please have an unedited, RB3 version of "Feels like the First Time"?

    Hopefully the amount of people both hoping for "Speechless" in the GI article thread and predicting it in the prediction thread catch HMX' eyes if they ever try to get more Lady Gaga. I'll be getting this pack, but disappointed overall in the song choices (moreso that it's three instead of five or six)

    Foreigner is a nice surprise. Definitely getting both whenever they're released on PS3. Would've liked a non-cover Jukebox Hero, but I suppose that'll be for another day.

    I had hoped for more tracks from Lady Gaga but I'll certainly snap up what's offered. I'll have to give the Foreigner tracks a listen again before deciding - I don't know them well enough to predict whether I'd enjoy playing them. An okay week for me but ultimately a little disappointing since it's the only week this month I was looking forward to.

    Sweet I've been waiting for more Foreigner. I might get Gaga for my wife and for me to do the Weird Al version.

    Was hoping for the Lady Gaga Pack to be a 6-Pack :( But I guess a 3-pack is fine. They are some great songs :D

    Very excited about the Foreigner songs and the upgrades! I didn't hate the last Gaga set as much as expected and a friend loves them, so I'm likely to get roped into buying those too.
  • Razor_SharkRazor_Shark Opening Act
    edited May 2011
    Ok, the Gaga songs don't sound very fun to play, but only a select few of hers do, so party songs those are. Foreigner is a must buy. Both pro guitar upgrades for me, even if both of them are kind of meh, good songs, but not worth the pro guitar when both bands have better songs for pro guitar.

    In other words, I'm buying it all.
