Thanks for the feedback. I'm actually about to order some fresh batteries too (Sanyo eneloops, I've heard good things about them) so hopefully that offsets the power draining issues a bit.

Unless there's something I'm missing, the down/up strum issue should only affect menu navigation, correct?

Unless someone takes pride in just doing all upstrums in a bass song, then should be fine. Though even then it's only one of the strum bars that has that, the other one should be fine. So yeah you should be good eitherway.

Why? It's fitting because it will be "the day the music died," it's an artist that's never been in Rock Band; and it was in Guitar Hero 5, so I don't think it would be that difficult to convert it.

They could always do Scandal's "Goodbye to You"

I think it was Band Hero, but same thing regardless. I think it'd just be way too corny for what RB has done over the years. It's just my opinion though, and if other people are happy with it, then that's all good too.

The only way Harmonix can redeem the way they have ended DLC (Blitz weeks, Chevelle, etc) is to give the same sale (they have on all pre-RB3 DLC) on all the post-RB3 DLC.

Yup. Burning my instruments tonight. /s

Seriously, I was hoping for something more like a Metallica style release the last few weeks. Oh well, adios RB DLC, I've enjoyed the entertainment you've given me way back since I bought the first RB1 bundle.

Music store. Yes. Servers. Not sure. RBN. That will continue on 360 since they built that system around the 360 network, RBN on PSN will be dead after April 2nd.

Yes every thing stays up. The only thing ending is new Harmonix DLC.

I Feel like buying American Pie not because I'm a fan of the song (I'm not), but kinda as a thanks to Harmonix and I almost feel obligated to after they've continued to support Rock Band as a platform for basically over 4 years now. So it'll be bought out of principle.

I was coming here to say the same thing. After all the songs I've enjoyed, feels fitting to send them off with a final show of support.

Yeah. Don't have strong feelings one way or the other, but I'll buy it. Also went through yesterday and bought most of the remaining few half-price songs I had been on the fence about in the past.

Look at the second post on the first page. Holy ahit. It's hard to even fathom a time when we were getting like 10 or more songs a week.

Guess I'll finally give in and buy a cheap new copy of Lego RB to export it. Was holding out since I always kind of thought they'd release that stuff with added keys support.

EDIT - Wow, didn't know new copies of Lego Rock Band were so expensive on Amazon/Ebay (30 bucks or more), Assuming it's due to the export code since used copies are next to worthless. After seeing the prices I went up to K-Mart where I knew they had one copy still sitting on the shelf for 20 bucks. With the B1G1 50% sale going on now I essentially got it for 15 bucks. Still annoyed you have to pay an additional 10 bucks to export the stuff, but it looks like I came out about as good as possible right now.

I may do the same and support Harmonix for supporting the game all these years.

I was lucky and got a cheap copy of Lego Rock Band when a Movie Gallery near me closed, and the code still worked!

Count me in. I haven't played for 6+ months, but I've had countless hours of fun. Nice run Harmonix.

I'm a total sissy but by the end of this video I was honestly kind of sad. Will put this in the OP as well.



Also, really fantastic article by Alex Navarro (ex-Gamespot, ex-Harmonix, now at Giant Bomb) about stuff that happened along the way from RB1-3. I was going to write some big retrospective thing myself but I think this does just fine for now. It's a bit lengthy but worth it:

If you had the pack but you didn't buy Pro guitar/bass upgrade for ..And Justice for All, you can't purchase it anymore.

Weird, the other day I looked and saw AJFA by itself wasn't up on the store, but the pack itself was. Guess they "fixed" that.

Anyone still have Beatles RB and need any of the more basic online achievements? I looked today and saw I still need the million points on a song & overdrive for 60 seconds ones. Figured I'd need at least two people, ideally three. Lemme know if anyone is interested.

I forgot that the RBN Creators site has been down alongside the main site, so it is taking a while to resume RBN releases. Should see some new stuff in another week or two. Total crapshoot like RBN always is, but it's better than nothing I suppose.

RBN gets me Dillinger Escape Plan. So I eagerly wait for more releases, especially now.

I am looking to buy a new rock band wireless guitar. It seems crazy that these things have gone up in price so much on Amazon/eBay. Anyone have any advice where I could buy one? I am requesting specifically a Rock Band guitar for the automatic calibration it has on it. I can find the pro guitars pretty cheap everywhere, but the normal 5 button guitars seem to have skyrocketed in price recently. Any suggestions?
