    ACK!

    Started one last try on a score war on The Camera Eye where I was being beat by about 200K and actually beat the score by 25K and took a higher spot on the leaderboard...

    But the score war timer ran out mid song and the game said. SUCK IT!

    So, let that be a lesson, you can't just start before the timer runs down, you have to finish too. :P

    BAAAWWWWW!

    Every time I replay a song in Score Wars I do increasing worse.

    I think they said in a livestream that score wars last for about 5 minutes longer than the timer for that very reason. Of course, that only helps so much when you're playing a song that's ten minutes long.

    My failure? The fact I cannot play my Rockband 2 songs because I don't own Rockband 3 on my Xbox 360. My second great failure? When I got Lego Rockband the damned code didn't work and I could never retrieve it. Attempting to pull that on the Xbox Marketplace tells me "Bag of Nope". As much as I want to LOVE Blitz, I can only like it. It is keeping me at a distance. Let me have my Rockband 2 and I think we could get pretty dirty Blitz. -Adam

    Harmonix. I have forsaken RB3 for RBB, and will shut up about RB3's shortcomings for a good while.
    That did not last long...

    This is a platform-wide shortcoming. I never said anything about those. :D

    And it's gone now. I discussed it in the victory thread.


    "Modern Love" is next to impossible. Two shameful four-stars and resulting ragequits. Heavy on the keys and drums - they're on the opposite sides.

    Also had the "Super Keys" on while playing Maiden. Wasted Years? More like Wasted Coins.

    I purchased Ooby Dooby to get the Decade achievement, because the store said it was from the '50s.

    It wasn't.

    Oh man, Mags is beating me again.

    I can tell that this yoyo-ing position on the leaderboards is going to continue for quite some time. Overall, I think Mags is going to win. I just have too many other games I want to play, man!

    EDIT: Just sent him the score war to end all score wars. This will be the deciding round. Who is truly greatest at this game?

    I also fell for Ooby Dooby's date, but it doesn't matter since the PSN didn't get the bonus DLC goals.

    My epic fail is my horrible luck in picking super instruments power-ups (Keys on Death on Two Legs and the like). I also manage to neglect the keys way too much, particularly when it's a sustain type chart. I'm starting to resort to super drums unless there is definitely a better instrument.

    i'd suggest sticking to super guitar/bass, from those 2 lanes you always have a lane on either side, making it a lot easier to switch over to hit a powerup or some OD notes.

    Mags, we may as well both give it up. We're not getting that #1 spot.

    I don't have enough songs to really be competitive in the long run anyway on the global leaderboard. Plus, I had more fun playing "One Week" 17 times yesterday in order to unlock an imaginary achievement!

    new imaginary achievement:
    gold star a song, by playing with your feet!

    I probably have the most epic fail of all time...I played my 1,021st song, knowing full well that it could break my game, and sure enough, it did. I'm like the proverbial toddler touching the hot stove, except I knew better and just had to see for myself anyway.

    Ha! The way you're going lately it probably wasn't going to be me anyway. But hopefully they can get the issue squared soon enough and I can at least give it the old college try...

    Worst case scenario, if this goes on for too long, I may very well end up just creating a new profile and starting from scratch. That way I'd at least be able to pick the 1,020 songs I'd want to have available. There are a lot of songs I wouldn't have played if I had known about the issue from the beginning.

    That would be pretty crazy, and I probably wouldn't resort to that unless it looked like it would never be fixed (and they seem hopeful to have a fix soon.)

    But I can't imagine being stuck like this forever. Before release, I fully expected that I'd play this game for a few hours, get tired of the novelty, and go back to RB3. Instead, over 120 hours in, I am completely addicted and it has become without question one of my favorite games of all time. And I've played a ****load of games.

    Did the Through the Fire and Flame Notes goal, beat it, forgot to start the goal on Facebook. Second time I've done this, after Message in a Bottle Rocket
