    It can be from a simple 2 second delay to something obscene like 8 seconds from what I've seen.

    It's why I don't really bother doing so nowadays.

    Some cats need to mute their mics during a play session. If you're playing in a room with a stereo setup turned up to concert volume levels, the headset will pick it up.

    I half expected the song to be Cool for Cats. Now *that* would've been silly.

    I've been trying to keep my rocking out to a minimum, since I fell running for a bus and banged up my kickin' leg and every time I play it gets sore again.

    WotLK is making that easy, at least.

    I just picked up the RB2 strat. I'm extremely pleased with it -- but it does feel like the fret buttons require a little more pressure than I'm used to. Every few songs I'll miss a note or chord because my fretting was late. I'm sure I'll get used to it.

    Man, I remember when I was happy with RB1 and under 100 songs. I still obsessively download everything I can download, and now RB2 tells me I have 484 songs. (345 DLC + 84 RB2 + 55 RB1)

    Hmm... if the three songs on the RB1 disk that can't be exported also count as "DLC or on-disk" then Harmonix only needs to release 13 more songs to meet their 500-song commitment. I think they can do it.

    After playing through most of the 20 Free Songs multiple times, there are at least 12 songs that I never want to play or hear again but can't do anything about because of the goofy data structure.

    Nice to see "All the Small Things" is the top-selling song.

    Hopefully this means more blink-182 other than this and "Dammit".

    I paid for the Metallica pack, but it's no longer on my xbox due to not fun. And I have Hard To Handle, and so should you. I think I technically own all the songs on that list except Toxicity, and I might even have that. We buy a lot of DLC and then decide we don't like it and boot it off the xbox or just never play it again, and I forget what we have and what we don't. :P

    Maybe the list takes into account the Euro version, which has Hysteria on-disc.

    I'm only missing "This Ain't a Scene, It's An Arms Race", "Afterlife" and "Disturbed Pack".

    So how hard is it to maintain her bionic leg? The guitar is a guilty pleasure of mine, and I do like the drums but the kicks on Expert are maddening.

    There is a noticable difference in the muscle definition of her right leg opposed to her left. When she flexes her foot and points her toes up or down, her calf mucles, or the muscles along her shin are ripped.

    Have the heavier sticks affected her arms as well? As dedicated as she is the game must be a pretty decent workout.

    Yeah, she notices more soreness from heavy sticks, the kind of sore after you work out or do a lot of yardwork or something. Heavier sticks are definately noticiable even if they're not that much heavier. You do a long of quick swinging around of them, even an ounce or two is noticeable after a few thousand drum hits. And she has actually lost weight doing this, more than you might have thought possible. She's lookin pretty svelte now. :D

    I definitely sweat when I play expert drums. However, as opposed to physical duress, I think the sweating is caused by frustration, as I get mad at my limbs for not doing what I want them to

    Jukebox Hero is your standard, Government Issue, 1-H Cover. It sounds like, but is not as good, as the origional. It sounds like any random cover band. It is not horiffic. The instrument parts are competently played and the vocals are faithful yet disappointing.

    This summarizes me attempting to play Breaking the Girl.

    That sucks fucks me up on medium. I get like 82% on medium. I can play like 15 or 20 songs on expert, and that song sticks it in my dumper on me-di-um.

    I do not enjoy playing it on any instrument, and don't care for the song on its merits as a piece of music.

    Morgan loves it, so I play it. :P

    I see you've tried Going Mobile. That Who Pack is so full of win. Baba O'Riley is still my favorite song to voxtar.

    If I ever feel like a good aerobic workout, I just boot up a Keith Moon song from the Who Pack, some of the Rush stuff, or Constant Motion on expert drums.

    After a couple of those songs I'm winded, dripping sweat, and can't hardly lift my right leg, it's awesome!

    For stamina and strength building in the leg, I recommend anything with a steady kick beat, no matter the pace. Maps, You've Got Another Thing Comin'. White Wedding, and Hungry Like the Wolf are great for this.
