Rock Band 2

Remember that Guilty Pleasure post I posted not too long ago? Well, seems like the Man Beast has done it again. We are now the proud owners of Rock Band 2. Cool songs - that goes without saying.

Some improvements:

  • Quieter Drums
Anyone who has the original RB, knows that loud drums were a huge turn off of the original peripherals. Rest assured, the new drums are much quieter. Another bonus: metal reinforced foot pedal!
  • No-Fail Option
Okay, this is just the coolest feature evah! Imagine, playing RB2 as a family and even your littlest one (who happens to fail out - frequently) is able to play a whole set -- all because of a neat-o feature you can enable that makes failing impossible (I do believe I created a post eons ago about fulfilling your wildest dreams if failure (or failing, rather) were not an option.)
  • Carry Over Songs
So, you worked your tail off unlocking all of the songs off RB, and even spent some hard earned money buying some songs (downloadable content - DC). You hesitate to buy RB2 because you just don't want to lose all that hard work. Check it out - everything will transfer! (DC is free, the RB songs transfer with a $5 patch - worth it, especially if you really like the RB sound track).

Expensive? Yes. Totally useless? Yes. Fun? Absolutely!

Until next time...
