Up for games? Let there be ROCK!

Just a thread to organise sessions amongst ourselves and to talk about them afterwards. I'm going to go on at half 7 if anyone would like to join me. I'll play any instrument. Add me as D4RK ONION.

Indeed we will. Your xbox cut out at the second song, but for some reason I wasn't hearing any of the guitar part of the first song. It was as if you weren't playing but the little icon wasn't sliding down the bar on the left.

Did this happen to you too Onion?

Nope, he was coming through fine on my side. Make sure both your audio wires are plugged in. Then again, the lag on our very first song was so bad that you'd hit an overdrive section and the overdrive wouldn't get to you until about 30 seconds later! Also, your track was staying lit with that yellow overdrive look for ages all night! I don't mind, I got my Bachman- Turner achievement!

Good session to both of ye anyway, and epic solo to Bobby in that last song we did!

I assume you're talking about Almost Easy. I couldn't believe I hit everything I've never done that well on that song, my fingers were doing stuff I couldn't even comprehend

Ah these are bloody merciless compared to other RB games, I've 100%'d songs and missed the cut off for gold by 400 points

In previous games the Overdrive path was pretty easy to work out for most songs but in the beatles, in more than a few songs I've ended the song with OD to spare. Been a bit lazy to do my home work on the OD usage but I must check later regards the cutoff's for playing as a band, they might be easier.

I haven't really tried to get gold in the other rock band games yet, but I find that in a band these are much easier, at least you can make a mistake and still get gold with time to spare. I've 100% some songs on bass and still not got gold, after research I found out it's impossible to do it on the song I did!!


Anyhoo, for anyone who doesn't have the Beatles game I have a spare for sale http://www.adverts.ie/showproduct.ph...=176047&cat=12

*cough* blatent plug * cough*

Oh I know about that site, it's a godsend!

Has anyone GS'd I Want You (She's So Heavy)? I'm having trouble getting the 1,000,000 on it, tough to find a 4 piece band out there!!
