    You and others told me to go listen to the song on YouTube since I was expressing my displeasure of having so much chatter interfere with the song. You guys think you're funny? Huh? You think I was tuning into the livestream to listen to the song? No! I was there to take a look at the charts WHICH requires me to listen to the song as well. THEY GO HAND-IN-HAND. And so what, you guys told me to go listen to the song on YouTube and sync it with the chart? You think that can be done in 5 seconds? It's harder than you guys make it sound.

    If you honestly didn't have problems with them talking the whole time while watching the song, you either

    1) Are an enormungous-giganium Harmonix fanboy
    2) Weren't really trying to feel the chart, you were just watching different-colored notes scroll down your screen

    Now since I've confronted one of the forum's Queen Bees I expect that this post will become a magnet to all hatred.

    But hey Harmonix, nice job with the livestream. It really helps us to decided what to buy. My only suggestion would be to remain silent while the song is playing. Thanks!

    But as I stated, I do expect to be run off by the forum posters (or a moderator). I don't care, however, because I had to confront this super Harmonix fanboy behavior. It just disgusts me.

    1. i can easily feel the chart without listening to the music. i play with my sound off all the time because my neighbours don't like music.
    2. i actually prefer the talk, because they tell us interesting things we don't hear so often. the songs? i can hear those everyday.
    3. FanGirl

    4. if you really want to look at the charts with the proper music. wait 10 minutes till after the DLC is released. there are already full videos on youtube in that short amount of time

    If having a martyr complex was a bannable offense, I might as well start calling myself Pontius Pilate, so you're fine there.

    Using alt accounts is a bannable offense, though, so I'll just go ahead and permaban this one so you can resume posting under your usual account, DemonUnicorns.

    Except the guitar on the first few seconds of that Yellowsong card .... what was up with that?

    We forgot to turn autoplay on. Classic goof.

    We'd love to be able to but there are all sorts of licensing complications here. Sorry that you're not wild about it (and sorry if you were upset at how people were responding to your criticism) but this will likely be the format of the show moving forward. We'll aim to keep the chatter more focused on the quality of gameplay, trivia and pro tips, but if you're at all familiar with our tone on the podcast / forums / social platforms, then it's fair to say things may get a bit goofy.

    If you're not satisfied with YouTube or muting out livestream as an alternative then I'd recommend waiting until Tuesday and checking any of the other community generated charts online.

    Rad, man. I hope you guys do decide to put up Blitz gameplay at some point because I have a feeling I may pick up DLC songs that look fun in Blitz even if I don't think they would be for RB.

    Check out the free Twitch.TV app. Pope and I were both screening from our iPhones today and it played fine. Comments didn't update in the realest of real time, but it worked fine for watching video.

    Or even worse, don't care!
    They ask me what phone they should get with a picture of an iPhone in their head. And when I carefully explain EVERY reason not to get an iPhone, they're like "Thanks for the advice, Mario!" and get an iPhone! ARGHHHHHHHHH!

    Dude, if I can watch.... erm...... "special" videos on my iPod, I'm sold.



    That's like the only reason I have one.

    I thought that I had tried that before and it didn't work, so I deleted the app...maybe it was an earlier version. I'll reinstall and try again next time. Thanks for the heads-up.

    There's a twitchtv app that you can use to watch it very easily.

    EDIT: ninja'd, I guess.

    EDIT 2: Not really ninja'd even, just didn't read the post.

    We're legally not allowed to just let videos run in their entirety without commentary. Clearances generally extend to 30 second previews in the context of gameplay (as with the DLC trailers here on RockBand.com) but anything more than that could upset bands / labels / management / lawyers. So that's why audio commentary is a requirement for any livestreams we produce.

    Don't worry, hmxhenry, if you ever license any of my music to be in Rock Band, I'll let you use it wherever you want, for as long as you want.

    Cool for others, but the last time I stayed up for a livestream at 6PM EST, I could barely stand up by the time I was at uni.

    Still great though.

    We've got a different plan for Blitz set list announcements, but we've definitely considered showing what the current RB DLC tracks will look like in Blitz. Possibly even a trade off between Pro charts and Blitz charts. If there's enough interest in Blitz charts we could definitely try to slot them in to future shows.

    That sounds pretty awesome actually, thanks!
