There are likely plenty of people out there asking why they should bother picking up Rock Band 2 since they already own the first one. Yes, there are some awesome new modes that should get you excited, including customizable set lists for nonstop rocking in Quickplay. Yes, the instruments will be getting tweaked, but two things should really pursuade you to dish out the extra cash. First is the full set list for the game (check it out after the jump) and second is the full set list from the first game. That's right, not only will you be able to play all of your DLC, but most of your on-disc tracks will be available.
Rock Band easily consumes more of my time than any other game I currently play. Its unique gameplay and ever-growing list of songs make for a great time alone or with friends. However, Konami doesn't think that the gameplay is all that unique, as they have recently filed suit against Harmonix citing patents issued in 2002 and 2003.
With the announcement of Rock Band 2 we found out that the instruments would be getting a bit of a update. However, since the original peripherals will be compatible with the new game, we know that there won't be any huge changes to the drums (like an extra pad and such). What we do know is that the 360 is getting wireless controllers.
Every year around this time, we are bombarded with rumors. Does the summer heat give everyone an excuse to stay inside and pass rumors? Maybe, but it also nearly E3 time, which is when the rumor mill is in full swing. The latest we have is not one, but two different “leaked” Rock Band setlists. These come from “trusted sources”, which must mean that they are both completely accurate, despite being different. Read on for both versions.
With any new game that's announced, there are always a ton of questions left unanswered. Over time details slowly trickle down the line, and Rock Band 2 is no different. One question we now no the answer to is regarding the number of songs included on the disc. The magic number, it has been revealed, is 80, which is 22 more than the original game contained.
If you guys are anything like me, you're pretty damn excited about Rock Band 2. Details on the game are still fairly scarce (and will likely remain so until E3), however, we do have an idea of when we'll see the game on store shelves. Let's just say that Xbox 360 owners will be a little happier than everyone else.
Man, every now and then I get blindsided by an announcement that I just wasn't expecting. Sure, we all knew that Harmonix was working on Rock Band 2, but I really didn't expect to hear anything official until E3 at the earliest. Well the cat's out of the bag, so read on for some highlights of what to expect about this awesome sequel.
