neogel;833212 said:What a tease! This is the longest week of all time waiting to find out more about rock band 2...
I wrote up this big post and took a lot of screenshots about one of our new features, and realised that I couldn't show it just yet because it relies on songs - and we hadn't officially announced any yet when I sent this off for approval. Awk-ward.So, NEXT week you'll see that blog post, which will be good because I will be at E3 and usually wouldn't have time to do anything but a photoblog.

Goatman...;833790 said:Edit: The scoring in general seems a bit off. Not just for RB but for all of these types of games. 100 notes in a row is worth more than 300 notes spread out. The multiplier is really the all important scoring mechanism. There are several songs that I have scored higher on medium than on hard. Even if I 4 or 5 star a song, it might not beat out a good score on medium for the same song.I think about improving my career score, and it is a daunting task. In some cases I have to improve my expert scores by 50k just to match what I accomplished on medium. I don't see a fix to this.

billmcdougal;836617 said:Talkies fixed - Awesome! (means scores probably won't carry over, but it's worth it)Gold star lowered - mixed bag (more likely scores won't carry over)Sure, there are a few songs that can't be GS'd and that's wrong and needs to be fixed. But some songs are too easy to GS as it is and will just be silly-easy now. Oh well, I guess it's a fair trade off. I just hope that only solo gold stars will be easier because band gold stars are already pretty easy and I don't think there are any song where they're impossible.

I consider myself a great singer as I have been asked to appear in radio jingles and I have over 15 years experience singing with bands and hosting karaoke shows. I know how to control my voice. I am anything but tone deaf.Last night, for the 10th time or so, I got booed off on a song (Jukebox Hero, if there are any questions).
MacMog;838413 said:Really? Even on Easy? I can't imagine that someone who doesn't suck could fail repeatedly on Easy, unless they insist on drastically rewriting the tune. If you want to do that, get a karaoke setup going.
U2Phreak1969;841371 said:Seriously, how many people have you found even at Friday evening house parties that can sing Lou Gramm, Paul Stanley or Tom Sholz? I love Foreigner, KISS and Boston respectively, but they are bloody hard to sing. . . Short of losing a testicle before your voice changes. More than likely singers that try are peeling the paint from the walls with their attempts.

Rhezekim;842785 said:I am sure this was addressed so please forgive me for missing it or not taking the time to check thouroughly. I wanted to know if the DLC for Rock Band will be able to be used on Rock Band 2? I have spent a lot of money on DLC, almost every song, and I would hate to have that money wasted, it would be great if we could play all the DLC from the original Rock Band on Rock Band 2, thanks for your patience with me and your understanding.
crivit;842830 said:Yes, all DLC will work with RB2 automatically. You don't even have to download anything again. Also all DLC released after RB2 comes out will still work with RB1. There is no specific RB1 or RB2 DLC, it's all just RB DLC.
themadspin;841671 said:Games like Grand Theft Auto have long allowed you the option of playing the game straight up, or popping in developer created cheat codes in order to bring havoc and destruction to the masses. There's a trade-off of course: you give up credibility in placement of unmitigated freedom and fun.
themadspin;841671 said:I think if people are willing to sacrifice score in a group setting via free-vocals, then there is no reason to avoid its inclusion. I think it's a great idea and would also keep me from getting frustrated when my 4 year old illiterate nephew wants to play and just hums gibberish into the mic.
