    Holy shit, nothing is more sad or dissappointing to find out that the people at Wal-mart are so retarded that they didn't even connect the FOOT PEDAL to the drums so people were confused why they were fucking up when they were hitting notes. To make matters worse, a bunch of kids seemed to play the fuck out of the Rock Band strat guitar, and its strumbar was dead and limp. Bunch of people were like "meh" at this totally awesome game due to a fuck up at the people at Walmart.

    This is my favorite post of the week.

    I've been peeking at the stream but I've already seen too much -- I must avert my gaze, as if I am staring into the sun or the face of God. I want next week to be a seamless set list of ROCK in my house, and I tend to go into media blackouts so that all of the audio/visual goodness is like opening presents on Christmas morning.

    I went into the FuncoLand where I had my reserve and traded in a boatload of stuff to add to it after cross-referencing with CAG to see what I wasn't getting ripped off on. Did you know the Sneak King game will only get you 20 cents back? I asked if I would still get 40 percent more on top of that, and the guy laughed. But I put down just under $100 worth of stuff, which means that with the $25 I put down initially I'll be paying less than the cost of a regular retail 360 game the day of.

    Only 20 cents for Sneak King? Heresy! That game was commercialism at it's finest!

    No.

    I was THIS close to bursting into song just watching the GH3/RB comparison video. It may be the only song I'll actual use the mic for. At first anyway.

    Woo, won an ebay auction that wasn't sniped at the last minute, for some reason. I just had to pay 20$ more than retail and he's shipping it the day it comes out. Whew, crisis averted. I thought I wouldn't be getting the game until 2008... :D

    I was thinking about camping but couldn't that night, so I'm pretty happy with the result. I was staring at the auction for the last ten minutes wondering "why is nobody jumping on this more...?". I looked for a catch but it seems perfectly legit; he's even got the pre-order slip.

    Definitely not -- I hadn't heard the song until GH3 but I love it, and I can't wait to play and sing at the same time. It's a big crowd-pleaser, too, so I think it'll get a lot of play.

    It's one of those songs that I absolutely despised when it first got a bunch of radio play, but after I heard it a bunch of times I secretly adore it.

    I found the whole album was like that. Didn't like it at first, but it grew on me over time.

    Like a fungus.

    An awesome fungus.

    So, I'm talking to my friend today about Rock Band and how awesome it will inevitably be, and we get on the topic of when we'll be obtaining it. So I say, "Woo! Four days man, this is going to fuckin' rock!" Immediately his face turned a pallid shade of ash. "You mean you... don't know?" "Don't know what?" "The game comes out December 17th, man."

    I murdered him where he stood.

    So who wants to fill in for vocals?

    He's right, though. It's December 17th in Canada. You shouldn't have killed the messenger.

    No. He had to die. Someone had to feel the full clout of my wrath.

    Seriously though, what the fuck? This isn't fucking Australia. They should have had their act together long before now. I can't wait a month, so I guess I'll be buying it online or something. Or I'll get my relatives to go down to Buffalo and buy it for a profit.

    I don't listen to radio music, so awesome music stays awesome for me without the opinions of the working class masses.

    This also means that there should be both Killers' albums for DLC plz.

    I'm tempted to play the guitar while singing for this song alone.

    Don't trust the IGN review.

    Yeah, yeah, it got a 9.4. That's all well and good.

    I mean, don't trust this:

    "Still, it's impossible to ignore that, particularly in the early goings of BWT, we were playing the same tunes again and again. It doesn't help that some of the songs in Rock Band just plain suck (Coheed and Cambria, seriously?)."

    I'd love to play "Money", but the song might drag on a bit for vocals/bass. The guitar solo is sick, though.

    The drum part on that song is out of control too. The drum groove laid out about 2/3rds of the way through the song is the main reason I have to turn the volume up to 11 when that song comes on.
