    These music games have been going on far too long.

    Oh yes...

    Best Wii game of the year, quite possibly. Damn, I wish I had band controllers. Although I'd actually buy this one, just for all the instruments.

    Nice, amazingly I'm still playing GH5 I usually get bored of GH games after a week but that one has a much better tracklisting (well if you are a indie kid).

    This one should keep me more occupied, I've pre-ordered this already but it wont hurt to play it with GH guitars until Wednesday.

    Never played any Rock Band or Guitar Hero game ever. Except the DS version of Guitar Hero, which I was given as a Christmas present.

    Then this is a good excuse to start playing [​IMG] Unless you don't like the Beatles of course.

    Ugh, I wish I had read this topic in a few hours instead. Now I'm over excited, while having to wait hours for someone to upload this on usenet or whatever.

    Well my PC will be turned off in an hour or so and even then I can't play due to the lateness. So will get to tomorrow when I'm home from work...if I decide to go. [​IMG]

    If it works on our loaders that is.

    Same question I asked in guitar hero 5 thread can you play The Beatles with a wii remote since I don't have enough money to buy the instruments yet.

    in gh i believe you can but if this is the normal RB engine then no you need at least a GH guitar

    I liked the ACDC cover a lot better

    Meh, just being able to hear your music and play it in real time, not to mention flashy visuals. It also makes for a good party game and has some bitchin' multiplayer.

    Harmonix set the GH/RB games to be pure rhythm games. Of course I could play most of these myself, I could form a tribute band and play the songs and maybe earn some money singing badly but these games are just meant to be pure fun in your living room. Its like singing along to your favourite songs only in game form.

    Again I could play along with my guitar but then I also like to unlock challenges and so on. To me its just the same as Dance Dance Revolution and other rhythm titles. With a group of people who can't play instruments (which is most I know) its a lot of fun and there lies the appeal, its like karaoke. Some people love it some people hate it.

    Feel free to edit my post if it's not allowed, but I believe it's legal to say it's almost done uploading on usenet ^^ (not by me btw)
