Rock Band 3 arrived and we got to try it out. If you only have the old Rock Band instruments, it’s pretty much just more of the same with a better interface. As fun as ever, though. The big new thing is more realistic/expensive instruments and 7 player support (with 3 singers). I ordered the MIDI controller for the keyboard, but it doesn’t come out until the end of the month. I’m hoping to actually learn a bit of keyboard when it comes to it. We tried a bit of online play with strangers and the lack of communication was frustrating. We saw a pretty good keyboard player online. I had fun outfitting my character with a colonel hat and a monocle. I imported the songs from our other Rock Band games, so we have a lot of choice. You can apparently only rate songs in cases where you don’t like them. Hopefully they’ll show up less often. (I was hoping for a delete function.) They even threw in some Spanish songs, which was pretty cool. And it’s got Roxette, Kelly! 🙂 So come over to our house and play some Rock Band.
