    So we just need The Band so we can have some good ol' Animaniacs antics.

    It's probably been said, but I'm really excited about the prospect of a keyboard controller for Ben Folds songs.

    Then again, I haven't really been following the news much so I might be making a lot of shit up. Carry on.

    Well Cobain's mo-cap session was completely useless, so you can't blame them.

    Yet. Just give it time UV. You know HMX has a huge hard on for The Who. They only have a bigger hard on for Dave Grohl.

    EDIT:

    We could get the correct version of Pinball Wizard:

    Elton John!

    You guys are missing the point.

    Once RB3 comes out, we'll need to choreograph this amongst ourselves:

    They're way too close together, but I'm assuming you can move them around.

    The new Devo album is surprisingly pretty good (possibly even great). Would like to see some of it as DLC.

    Also, how was "Roundabout" found out about? (That was fun to type.)

    Did they announce more tracks? Just the one?

    I for one am happy about a Miley Cyrus pack. No Party in the USA is a damn shame though.

    Also, we still have a serious lack of Avril Lavigne.

    The most important thing for those who were wondering:
    The guitar is dissassemblable, and the nylon strings can be replaced without replacing the entire guitar, if you somehow rock too hard and break one. Try not to rock too hard.

    Predicting a massive market of small-sized nylon strings (I'm assuming the guitar wouldn't fit much more than 15" of a string in there) popping up after the game releases.

    That article was a good look at the Mad Catz Pro guitar.

    I'm definitely feeling a lot more comfortable now getting that one.

    Aww, no way to make wild extrapolations about the RB2 export list from that picture.

    They probably just hardcoded in a database of which songs came from which export, then just label each song accordingly when it gets to the music library... I doubt they did things the other obvious way (that is, changing the metadata stored within the exported songs).

    Well, for some reason it says Rock Band 1 has 57 songs, when it only exports 55 :?:

    Harmonix probably has all the songs in a big database, including the ones that they weren't allowed to export because of licensing issues

    But why only export 57 when there's 58?

    Someone at E3 needs to see if one of their demo units has 57 RB1 songs on and then see what extra songs are under it.

    With Pro Drums, that mysterious port in the back of the drums has to be high hat pedal support right? I would think the best way to represent open hi-hat would be a blue cymbal dot in the yellow lane, as blue's have been open hi-hats in the hat. Wow do I need to find an electronic drum kit.

    So I'm enjoying Green Day, but the fact all the rudey words have been editted out is annoying. I would have thought they would have secured an age rating for the game that would have allowed for them, given the number of songs that have them in. Still it just makes me shout FUCK loudly in right places when I'm doing vocals.

    It actually took a recent edition of Giant Bomb's podcast to remind me that, oh yeah - this is the same band that made such a huge fuss about not releasing an edited version of 21st Century Breakdown. Guess the thought of not netting that T-Rated money was enough to change their minds, or they just don't have such strong feelings about their artistic vision of the album now.

    Either way, I've been playing it some recently thanks to a friend who purchased it. Vocals are my go-to thing, and I've played a little guitar, and watched plenty of the guitar charts thanks to having most of the pre-21st songs memorized. Definitely glad I didn't buy this game full-price if only because guitar is my usual instrument, and holy hell the charts annoy me. My pre-release crowing about how charts seemed too specific for the loose and fast rock of Green Day was incredibly spot-on. I find myself cringing at some of the charts as they're going by. Might still be a bargain bin purchase simply for vocals or bass later, but damn those charts straight up annoy me.

    Also kind of enjoy how Song of the Century is totally a back-of-the-box noteworthy song when it's like a minute of just one vocalist and that's it.
