    i've seen the commercial for it, but i'm really confused as to how it works...is it like guitar hero but with more instruments?

    I played it at my friends apartment until about 6am. My memory of the night is fuzzy at best, but I do remember waking up with Weezer's "Say it aint so" stuck in my head.

    Cdale junky: Yes, like guitar hero but with guitar, drums, vocals and a bass if you have a second guitar.

    Ap - Say it ain't so has been stuck in my head for weeks now. Buddy Holly as well. DLC is evil. The game is ridiculously fun when even slightly buzzed. 4 of us killed 2 of those heniken kegs over new years eve rocking out to it. So much fun.

    My son has it. Most annoying video game ever. I can't wait until he packs it up and goes back to school.

    It's all with timing. Try triple tonguing a Tuba.

    With regarding this game. Nope, prefer driving games.

    Haven't played it before. The GH series is awesome. I figure this is just a little different. The online play thing sounds cool. Not sure how the singing thing works though.

    Just mumble a lot.

    And say, "Louie Louie" every 36 bars or so.

    Can you plug any kind of real drum trigger pads into that that game?

    I'd imagine the stock pads are weak as fvck.

    The fact that people would spend that kind of money on fake instruments makes me laugh.

    Can you get eHerpes from fans?

    Sad thing is that he is better than Lars Ulrich. :rofl:


    Technically none of that looks difficult at all. Everything is single-stroke rolls and there's no cymbal work involved. It's more of an advance version of the game Simon.

    I'd love to play that with a nice pair of drum corps sticks.
    :D

    So is the bass drum pedal superfluous and the 4 pads are all that counts?

    HAHAHAHa rep sent.

    I never really got into Ghero. Played a few times with friends, it was alright.

    I used be really good at DDR, but I got bored.
