yeah that is what I am thinking also, I have noticed that songs with the full complement of 5 track including keyboard notes are a lot easier to 5 star. I have been getting a lot of 4 stars on older things and 5 stars on anything since RB3.


I noticed that too. Thought it was just me.

Only a couple of friends picked this up so feel free to add me.

I got the 5-star everything achivement but holy crap is Shout bafflingly hard compared to everything else. Maybe I was just doing something wrong, but it took like 6 or 7 tries before I got it. Everything else I got in one or two tries.

The solution posted to TA for the 1,000 cred achievement says it should only take 7-8 songs. I've played about twice that many (just got the dozen song achievement, plus played a couple DLC), and I still only have about 900 cred. Am I missing something, or doing something wrong? Is there an easy way to get more cred per song? Also, it seems if I buy power-ups for all three slots, it'll cost me more coins than I earn for the song, even though I'm getting double coins for playing songs for the first time. Is that normal? Thanks.

Also, is there a way to manually pick what some and what opponent you issue a score war challenge to? The only place I see it is from the main "play" page, but it's always one predetermined song/opponent.

I'm getting 4 stars almost every song I play. I've completed about 40 songs now, and have exactly 3 songs with 5 stars, maybe two songs with only 3 stars, and everything else 4. Clearly, I haven't quite mastered this yet.

The facebook app Rock Band World is what you use to manually set up a score war with your chosen song and opponent.

The Facebook app is annoying. You can't even make challenges that are cross-platform, which I'd have thought you could given the use of Facebook, but you can't. I see my PS3 playing friends, but can't make a score war with them. What's the point, then? Well, I guess the point is to advertise the game on Facebook. I.e. no benefit to the player. You also can't see your progress on goals from within the game. You have to go to Facebook to see that. I really wish I could see that stuff in-game.

But I love the game itself. It's great.

I might actually play it now... Seriously, the coin system is retarded. You should earn less coins, and they should be used to permanently purchase powerups (ie, unlock the ability to purchase with blitz cred or whatever it's called, then pick which ones you want with coins). Should also have had more "unlockables" to use coins toward.

The coin system is kinda lame, but it shouldn't affect your enjoyment of the game unless you're only going after gold stars or something. High scores aren't everything. Also, the Facebook challenges are genuinely easy (play certain genres of songs, etc.) so they're worth signing up for if you really want more coins.

One of my favorite bands, but they probably could have picked some better songs. I get why "She's So Mean" is in there...the new album just came out Tuesday. "Bent" is all right, but I'd rather have "Disease". "How Far We've Come" I never really liked. They should have gone way back with one of these and threw in "Push" or "Real World". I'll still get the pack...and I'm at least glad it's a band we haven't seen before. That's something we need more of.

Giant Bomb-themed dubstep coming to RBN...possibly this week or next since it was planned around their annual all-day live show, which is this Friday.

Should be a TREMENDOUS opportunity to annoy friends, neighbors, and yourself.

I'm pretty sure you can pick who to send a score war challenge to and what song through the Rock Band World facebook app.

The problem is you have to be Facebook friends with those people. I don't know about you, but I don't have many people on my xbox friends list who I'm actual friends with in real life.

I refuse to add "apps" to Facebook, because they are ALL spammy and annoying. I did add the app to my dummy facebook account, but of course that account doesn't have any friends, it only exists to very occasionally redeem some promotional offer that requires an app. In my opinion, it was really silly of them to basically require the facebook linking for the complete experience.

Yeah - that's why I said "annoying."

I actually tried the app and it's not really intrusive or anything, and right off the top you can select that no one sees any posts made by the app except you. It's still a shitty interface though.

I've got all but the "all gold stars" achievement and cracked the top 100 players a few days ago, so I'm pretty Blitzed out. I'm sure I'll go back someday but I think I've gotten all I'm going to get out of that game for now.

For those that have the 300 songs achievement: Do all the songs need to be present on your HDD for them to count, or can you play and delete them?

The facebook app keeps track of how many unique songs you've played, but there's no counter in the actual XBLA game.

I don't like to keep all the transferred songs I never play on my HDD, so would suck if I have to keep them all there until I hit 300.

As soon as you have a registered score for a song on the leaderboards you should be fine to remove it from your storage.

I can't decide if I should keep torturing myself. 4 songs left until I pop the all gold stars achievement in Blitz, but those last 4 seem really tough to crack...and if I have to hear that fucking "Sing" song or that Shinedown crap once more I'm going to murder both bands.
