I've been getting a little obsessed with Rock band lately, since the sequel is coming out soon (this sunday.) Basically, I've been playing a lot. This has taken its toll on the conventional plastar that came with the game, affectionately called the strat since it looks like one. I broke the strum bar a week ago, and finally got the box to send it back so I can get a new one at some future date. Hopefully by the end of next week. I wouldn't mind this so much, since my roommate has one of the Guitar Hero 3 controllers that should work fine with Rock Band, except that his controller sucks a fat dirty hobo dick. It'll randomly decided that I'm not holding the fret buttons and drop a held note, or in the worst case scenario it'll not even register my button presses, causing me to fail miserably. This causes me great distress as I'm hell-bent on improving myself in the game, which is hard to do when your controller is against you. It's getting to the point where I can play for a half hour before I have to turn off the game for fear of smashing the damn thing in the street.

I'd love to try and fix it if I knew how - I suspect its faulty contacts on the removable neck (damn the push for wireless, I want stable damnit!)

Rockband is so easy. Straight out of the box I could beat just about everything on expert. There is no real skill involved. It is pushing buttons in sequence to music - much like lab monkeys do.

Me too.

Snook, you fail.

Also, Gibson is far more superior to Fender.

Knowing guitar brand names is a nerdy thing now? This isn't the world I used to know.

You are amazingly white and outside means acquiring a hobby which doesn't smack of the cheap consumer culture known as "gamers". Hey, here's an idea, learn how to play the actual "guitar" learn u some stuff ok??

I don't think being a gamer is cheap. That's why piracy is an issue nowadays.

I do, in fact, play real guitar. I own a Fender. It's pretty nice, though not high end. I'm not very good, but I'm learning.

This is a thread in which a person is bitching about how much a fake plastic guitar game sucks.

Wow.

On topic though, I've found that the Rock Band guitar is real piece of shit. Guitar Hero 2 and 3 controllers seemed to have their act together, sadly they cannot be used with Rock Band without some serious nerdification.

Rock Band is only fun for the drums anyway. Guitar Hero is, overall, an immense waste of time and money, though I'll admit that it can be fun on occasion for a short period of time, usually only when it involves a small group of people just hanging out. In terms of sitting down and obsessively playing it for hours on end by yourself... lawl.

Since you're learning to play the real guitar, you should seriously spend the time you'd otherwise spend playing the game to better hone your skills at the real guitar. It doesn't necessarily provide the immediate satisfaction the games does (OMG SWEET I COMPLETED IT ON EXPERT WITH 90% OMG), but in the long run, subpar skill on a real guitar is greater than expert skill at Guitar Hero.

Rockband drums are a blast. I can actually play the drums, which explains why I could beat stuff on expert out of the box. I haven't sat around and obsessively played for hours on end.

I agree with Jeff though man. If you own and are learning to play a real guitar, you should do that and not waste time with Rockband.
