• Re: DLC Discussion Thread: Suspect Singles

    With a theme of "Suspect Singles", you'd think Highly Suspect would be DLC. You know, Lydia or My Name Is Human?
    Yeah, that's the first thing I thought when I saw the thread, and I would have been much more excited for that, but nah it's just another A7X song.

    I guess this upcoming week is probably gonna be the drum challenge.

    Well, the breaks between songs makes it technically more efficient to play a longer song... But I'm not sure if it is significant unless you are playing many long songs vs short songs.
    Longer runs up against better odds to lose the FC bonus, though, so the 'seconds over hours' you save on loading and stuff maybe gets beat out real quick.
    The real pro strategy is to queue up 10+ songs at once so you just load up the next song instead of loading the song list again between every song.

    Come on guys, Men at Work and The Rolling Stones were not bands on the Rock Band 3 disc setlist and it's pretty obvious that's what the theme was supposed to be.

    RIP Keys: Songs by bands from Rock Band 3. Songs cannot be in RB already.

    1. "Down with Disease" - Phish
    2. "Lullaby" - The Cure
    3. "She Don't Use Jelly" - The Flaming Lips
    4. "I Never" - Rilo Kiley
    5. "Fields of Fire" - Big Country
    6. "Gimme Sympathy" - Metric
    7. "She's On the Radio" - Poni Hoax
    8. "Where Does the Good Go" - Tegan and Sara
    9. "Sloop John B" - The Beach Boys
    10. "There Is A Light That Never Goes Out" - The Smiths
  • Re: DLC Discussion Thread: Variety Hour!

    I couldn't give two *&^%$ what an artist thinks or says as another American adult. He may be polarizing, but he's done nothing immoral or illegal (there are plenty of artists already in the game who've actually broken the law).
    Politics aside, there's plenty Ted Nugent has done that could be considered immoral.
  • Re: Rivals Season 2: Electric Boogaloo

    Deep Cuts was lousy not just because of quantity of available songs, but quality. So much about this game is rocking out to the songs we love and cherished growing up and now. Not about playing songs from obscure local artists that we don't particularly enjoy. I enjoyed the Permaband tracks quite a bit but the majority of the free stuff I just don't care for. I was lucky to get through most of the Rivals songs with 1 play, but some I could not make it through.

    A lot of well- artists have songs in the RB library that I would consider deep cuts, but those songs weren't selected for the week. Songs from Hendrix, Doors, Jethro Tull, Deep Purple, Green Day, STP, etc, etc.

    This week's challenge will be good to open up the whole library and revisit On Tour or Rockudrama which I haven't done in a long time so looking forward to it.

    Yeah, when Deep Cuts was announced, I was thrilled because some of my favorite songs are what I consider Deep Cuts (Icarus by Kansas, Cowboy Song by Thin Lizzy, Take These Chains by Judas Priest, etc.) but then the challenge started and most of the songs I was excited for just weren't there.
