II. Rock Band Clan Tags
Any one looking to rock out with other PAers on Xbox LIVE is more than free to add the gamertag Rock Band PA. Once the invite has been accepted, you can then select Rock Band PA from your friend list, shift a pane, and then browse all its friends. As far as courtesy goes:
  • Drop a message or inquire as to which slot is available to whomever is rockin' in Band Quickplay.
  • Headsets aren't required but it does make the whole a bit more fun.
  • Don't be a dick. This is just for fun.
  • Warn others before you sing back-up vocals to I'm So Sick.
  • If you have DLC, be prepared to play it because a majority of the PA people have large amounts of them. We don't really try to match up DLC, but if it is there, we're fucking playing it.
Here are some of our recent "Sex Generals" outings:

IV. Gold Star Cut-Offs
A Gold Star is like a 6-Star. You do NOT need to hit 100% of the notes, it's just another high score level after 5-Star. Scrolling down your setlist and seeing a bunch of Gold Stars is a pretty amazing feeling, so get crackin'.

Guitar Gold-Star Cutoffs
Bass Gold-Star Cutoffs
Drum Gold-Star Cutoffs
Vocal Gold-Star Cutoffs

    Bass in "B.Y.O.B." hates you just as much as guitar does, same with the drums in both of the SoaD songs, and probably the vocals.

    Everything hates you, pretty much.

    Life is Beautiful is a pretty good song, bass notechart is hysteria-ish and it'll probably take me awhile to get use to. I plan on picking up the two SOAD and maybe the MC song.

    I finally got my first 'Big in X' achievement last night by finishing off Stockholm. Only 10 gamerpoints, but it was still strangely rewarding. Doubt I can get the rest before RB2 release though.

    oh hey, a new thread...

    I was just thinking about how much DLC I need to buy.

    I'm already planning out how to have some sort of RB2 party when it comes out, and how I can con my wife into playing with me more so I can get a few more of those BWT achievements before RB2 comes out!!

    I've already alerted my wife that Sept. 14 is Rock Band Day, and I claim all rights to the television from sunrise until we go to work on Monday. I'll also be inviting some people over, and I'm hoping that however the World Tour mode is set up lets me unlock all of the on-disc songs in time for an epic get-together. I would seriously take off from work an extra day or two solely for RB2, but unfortunately we're going to press at the magazine I work for, so such time off is verboten. :(

    It's going to be terrifying and beautiful at the same time to get RB2, import the RB1 songs, scroll over to Random Play and realize that I have 180+ songs to choose from.

    oh hey, a new thread...

    I was just thinking how much DLC I need to buy.

    I'm already planning out how to have some sort of RB2 party when it comes out, and how I can con my wife into playing with me more so I can get a few more of those BWT achievements before RB2 comes out!!

    "Here, you work on your Vocals solo tour and I'll make dinner."

    Yeah the thing is I already do all of the cooking anyway. She's just kind of burnt out on the on-disc songs so the tours are not really that fun for her and we're at the point where we've expended most of the "choose your own set-list" stuff.

    I have figured out ways to bribe her in the past, I'll just have to come up with new ones. :P

    I kind of feel like when you're getting to the level of involvement present in Rock Band, isn't it just easier to start your own actual band with proper instruments? I wouldn't be surprised if it was cheaper, assuming you went the usual start-up band route and get the cheapest second hand gear available/steal instruments from your friend's dad's attic.

    shit yeahhhhhhhhh. That combined with a dream theater DLC pack would give a glimpse at the evolution of progressive rock.

    Studies have shown, surprisingly, that games are not the same as real life.

    Yeah my wife and I are going to rehearse with the other married couple we occasionally play rock band with, other than that I'll gather the people from across the country that I occasionally do BQP with to fill in.

    Then we'll start booking gigs at local dive bars and keep rocking out until we're rich and famous!!!!

    So you can probably see the title of the other thread on the front page, but Target's got 1600 MS points cards on sale for $15 this Sunday.

    Time to stock up.

    New Thread. I'm basically replying to I can get the blue dot to keep track of this thread. I just sent in my busted 360 to their repair center today, so I'm hoping to get it back by the end of August, first week of September, which would be just in time for Rock Band 2's release date. At least it better show up before Rock Band 2 comes out. I ordered the Ion Drumkit and I'd be really, really pissed if I got it and didn't have my 360 to try it out on right away.

    Also, I'm not sure if it was noted, but the Drum Rocker site now will also allow you to preorder the cymbal expansion, a second bass pedal, and/or a drum throne, as well as the Ion drumkit.

    I can't wait for the imminent thread title change when Rock Band 2 hits.

    I'm hoping for "Rock Band 2: The 2-ening - Electric Boogaloo Harder".

    Gonna buy Toxicity, as evidently my girlfriend has fond memories of that song from her younger days.

    So I have noticed that my pads have stopped picking up a lot of faster hits... should I try taking off my silencer pads before I just replace the kit altogether?

    Someone just posted this over in the GH thread, but the side-bar relates to RB2. Nothing truly groundbreaking that we didn't already know, except for item #7...

    When you play on Xbox Live, whatever comes through your microphone will be relayed to one of the American Idol judges who will then rate your performance. You will then receive a weekly phone call from them with tips/criticism etc....

    From the videos I've seen, the mechanics are pretty much the same as they are now although they promised that the talky sections are no longer subject to various phoneme detecting issues.

    I haven't read anything regarding "performance" standards in the vocals mechanics. I think it is just bullshit from the magazine to even out their list.

    I was about to post "What's wrong with 'PDA'?" but then I Youtubed it and apparently the song I thought was PDA is actually Slow Hands. PDA's still a good song, though.

    EDIT: But Slow Hands would have been better though.

    If somehow the game can actually detect inflection in voice then a lot of shy vocalists are gonna be fucked, score-wise.
