Jibblypuff;4845757 said:well, i would've expected a different song by them myself. you'd think HMX would try to get one of their better known songs in this game to up the sales a little bit. If it was licensed at the same time as the last queen pack i'd think it would make more sense to put something like "Bicycle Race" or something in it.Unleeeessssss, there's a new queen pack coming :3

Magnet;4845771 said:HMX will choose less popular songs from bands sometimes if they're a good fit for the gameplay. I think they chose the perfect Queen song for Blitz, and I imagine a lot of people who have never heard it before will grow to love it. We already have a bunch of their hits, so I don't think going for a deeper cut should be too controversial here.
Magnet;4845830 said:Well, I'm just glad that many people who don't know the song and are interested in Blitz will have the chance to learn how awesome it is by playing the game, like how people will find new songs to love on the on-disc setlists of other music games. While radio hits can help get people interested in the game, I think the Blitz set list has plenty of them, and not every song needs to fall into that category.Bothersome is a strong word, but I do think it will be less fun when there are less instruments to play in Blitz. The more choices of instruments you have to play at a given point in the song, the more power-ups you can collect and the more you can continue to switch tracks to grow each instrument's multiplier.If they did switch DOTL with another hit from the last pack, I think a lot less people would wind up owning DOTL and having it as an option to play online, which would make me sad.

Jibblypuff;4845847 said:but then again,people that would've bought the entire queen pack would have gotten it discounted and might get it because of that. now some people might not get Blitz because they "don't know" the song(s) that were chosen for it.

Cipher_Peon;4846041 said:There are literally no more Queen songs I want left. All of my favorites are now in Rock Band.
Cipher_Peon;4846054 said:Death on Two Legs was the last Queen song from my iPod to make it to Rock Band.I love them and I'll accept more from them, but now all of the songs I like by them are all represented in Rock Band.
Magnet;4845771 said:I believe TYMD had two versions - a single and album version. I'm pretty sure DOTL only has the one version.
FujiSkunk;4846240 said:That doesn't really apply, though. Harmonix has released unique edits or mixes of songs before, even without counting new endings to replace face-outs. Sticking with Queen, "I Want to Break Free" is a custom mix in the game, sort of halfway between the album version and the extended dance mix.
