Rock Band Game

I've always been a big PS2 fan, but after playing Rock Band for the PlayStation 2 console, I felt a little left out from being able to download songs and play with others online.

So, I quickly decided to sale my PS2 and all the games and controllers. I used the money from my sales and trade-ins plus some extra money I had lying around to purchase an XBox 360 and Rock Band.

I haven't put it down sense. There's always someone new to play with and each song is a new experience. The game is always interesting and new.

Rock Band XBox Review

Being fairly new to the XBox, not unknowledgeable towards the console, but new to owning, I have found a great interest in the ability to download more songs and purchasing more songs with Microsoft Points.

If you get bored playing alone, and you have an XBox Live Account, sign right on in and find others to play with.

Rock Band, is a a game that you can play over and over again, and it never gets boring. You can play guitar, bass, drums, or vocals, so if you get bored or irritated with one instrument, try another.

You don't even need real instrument experience. I've never held a serious interest in playing the drums, as I have with the guitar, but even still, I am able to push through and play songs on Medium, and that's just starting off.

Rock Band is a game that is meant to be fun and entertaining.

I, personally, think that Guitar Hero, opened the world of gaming to a new extreme. Without GH's musical technology, Rock Band would not be this extreme!

The game comes in three different versions: PS2, PS3, and XBox 360. But, unfortunately, you cannot go live with the PS2 version.

Rock Band Drum Pedal Repair

So you've broken your drum pedal? Don't worry, you're not alone. It's a common mishap with the Rock Band drum set. The EA drum pedal is made of faulty plastic metal.

The front of the drum pedal is essentially just a spring, and the middle is nothing but plastic. When you stomp too hard on the pedal, it can snap right in half, which can really mess up your game...

Many people have used rulers and duck tape to temporarily fix the pedal, but long term, this will just not do. You don't have to reinforce your drum pedal any longer. Now, you can find various pedal repair kits and replacements on the market.

There is now a pedal repair kit that comes with either wooden or metal pedals that you can use if your original pedal snaps in the middle.
