Beatles: Rock Band: A Dialogue between friends.

The following is a real conversation between myself and King3VBO about Bealtles: Rock Band. I think it summarizes my feelings more than anything. Also, please play RB: Beatles responsibly and do not drink yourself into a stupor so you pass out during the middle of a song. [/psa] [/speakingofthingswhichIknownot]

did you get Beatles: Rock Band?

king3vbo
12:34
Of course
I loves me some Beatles
and subsequent Rock Banding

Mark
12:35
you know
I have so very mixed feelings about it. And they aren't subtle.
I am almost moved to tears at some of the songs; the presentation and visuals are amazing
but I feel gypped at 41 songs of 2.5 minutes or less.
(on average)
I don't feel gypped on the production values at all. I think it's horribly engrossing and fascinating; even the unlocks are great. I have no qualms about the game AT ALL, just the content (or lack thereof)

its short
but... so fantastic

Mark
12:39
yeah, and I think that's why I'm so torn.
It IS fantastic.
I can say NOTHING bad about it.
but the bear Jew in me is crying out 'foul play!'

playing I Want You (So Heavy) is like a religious experience

Mark
12:40
lol yes
and While My Guitar Gently Weeps

king3vbo
12:40
oh yes
oh god yes

Mark
12:41
and for me, Sgt. Pepper/Little Help from my Friends is probably my favorite song on the disc.

king3vbo
12:42
So Heavy is my favorite song just because... it is. But Sgt Pepper/Little Help is probably number 2
It's just so much fun to sing

Mark
12:42
Yes...
I was surprised, there were quite a few I didn't know.

It's still a great experience; I am just not sure fiscally if we are getting enough songs. What do you think?
