So, Rock Band 3, it's a game. I love the Rock Band series dearly, it's the only game series I have spent hundreds of dollars on and have spent the most hours on. The newest installment is a step up (in almost every area) than the previous installments. So after playing and beating all the road challenges, I figured it was time to jump into the online quickplay. You wanna know what I found there? A big mess of "Rush to choose your songs" and a bunch of assholes. So let me tell you why I will never touch online quickplay ever again.
So when you get your band all together and go choose a song, it's a race to choose your songs. I prefered the Rock Band 2 way of quickplay where you took turns choosing your song. This new way of choosing to makes a mess of a setlist that usually stretches between 6-12 songs. Yeah, I am not going to sit through a setlist of that many songs.
2. Keyboard Compatible Songs
Yeah, you see that little symbol next to my name that looks like tire tracks? Yeah, that means I'm playing a keyboard. Apparently this doesn't go through the thick skulls of some people as they just choose their death metal and DLC that doesn't have keyboard. I know I can play bass or guitar on the keyboard, but with setlists that are so long, there is mostly songs that don't have keyboard in them. Due to this, I have to sit through songs until a song with keyboard finally comes up. This has me yelling or just quitting and then the whole process repeats itself.
Yes, I know your song isn't first, deal with it. Man you suck, you're already failing... wait a minute. You're failing on purpose! Yeah, this has happened to me many times before. Some asshole won't want to play a song and the will try to fail as fast as they can to move onto the next one. This infuriates me more than the other two reasons to the point where I will quit and rage hard. Just thinking about it pisses me off...
If you wanna play some Rock Band 3 with me, invite me! Otherwise, the online quickly portion of Rock Band 3 will get no more loving from me.
