Wow, I'm a dork...

Finally, the uber busy period of work is over. To kinda get my mind off of work and also to kinda do something where I don't have to stay focused/use my brain, I decided that a new video game is in order. As I browsed around Circuit City, I finally caved in and decided to give Rockband a shot. I heard so many good things about it and I thought banging away on drums would be a good way to get rid of the stress.

I'm not gonna lie though... when I brought the huge box home and as I was unpacking and taking the stuff out, putting the guitar and drums together, I felt like such a dork... as a matter of fact, I haven't felt that dorkish in a long long time. I pretty much felt like a downright loser when I was putting the drum set together... to the point where I was just laughing by myself. Eventually, I was able to get it set up.



I'm not gonna lie. This game is downright addicting. Oh my god. Now, I can't stop playing... seriously, the only reason I stopped is to watch the Olympics for a little while. So, I figured I'd blog about it while I watch the Olympics. The only bad beat about this game is that I bought the Wii version... and apparently, the PS3 or Xbox version comes with the ability to download songs. I'm not 100% sure but it's based on the Rockband website... I saw you can download like System of the Down and stuff. Are you fuckin kidding me? And I can't seem to do that on the Wii... now THAT's a bad beat.

But either way, it doesn't matter. The game comes with like 63 songs and I also bought like the track pack that has an additional 20 songs so that should keep me busy for a while.

This game rocks. I'm banging away on my drums. I hope swimming ends soon so I can go back to banging away.

Newsflash: Everyone likes Guitar Hero, and everyone likes Rock Band. It does not make you a nerd.

Miami Don's posts about banging things > your posts about banging things.

When RB2 comes out you'll be able to download songs with the Wii, so don't fret.

Wii sucks. Get an Xbox 360 or PS3.

Rockband challenge at the December gathering?

not sure how that would be pulled off, but I know it would get some interest...

Nice TV too BTW.

i'd say "downright loser" is pretty on point. And klopzi is right, the Wii is for girls.

Now, if you'll excuse me ... I have to go play Madden (a real man's game....sort of).

Alan,

RB is the greatest thing ever, its way better than GH and I own both so I can say that.

I do agree you gotta get a 360 though, more downloadable content plus online bands.

My fav is the singing, I can usually score a 95% on expert...

I got my Rock Band about two weeks ago and have been playing it like crazy. I favor the drums over guitar. More action, more challenge. Green Grass and High Tides drove me nuts for a couple days until I finally conquered it.

Oh my god... that's actually the one that I am totally struggling. I practiced at 80% and I can pretty much get by. But 90% and my feet and my arms start to move in synch (which is not good) during that fast intro and the middle part... I guess I just need to keep at it.
