Step 1: Have a friend with a sister who owns Rock Band, but no longer lives with her roommate who owned the 360.
Step 2: Have said friend surprise you by bringing over a plastic tub containing with the game and all the instruments.
Step 3: ROCK THE FUCK OUT! Your results may vary.
So I now have Rock Band on indefinite loan. First thing I did was download Still Alive, and I luckily had enough MS points in my account to get the David Bowie pack (because MOONAGE DAYDREAM
). The guitar's top green and orange frets don't work, but the bottom ones work fine (and I actually kind of prefer using them instead). I'm considering picking up another guitar anyway, so I might call EA's customer service for a coffin and accidently slip the old one in for repair. (EDIT: DISREGARD, apparently the individual guitars are all wireless.) I'm currently working my way through the Easy Solo Career on guitar to unlock all the songs I can, before tackling the bass and drums. Singing is probably not going to happen for me, but I have friends with much better voices for that. The timing is less forgiving than Guitar Hero III, but I've already pretty much adjusted to it.
So Destructoid community, what are some of your favorite DLC songs in Rock Band? I'll definitely pick up the Pixies album after I go through the main game, but I'm open to any suggestions. If anyone wants to play together online, hit me up with a PM or XBL message. I'm usually on after 11:30 pm eastern.
