How does she respond when you're playing GH? Indifference? Interest? Intense mockery?

Indifference for the most part.  She tolerates it.  She has outright told me that she doesn't want a husband who plays a lot of video games...and I don't...before Guitar Hero came out, I hadn't turned on my PS2 in over a year.

I'm curious if there's any guys out there who have a wife/girlfriend cool enough (or maybe nerdy enough) who plays Guitar Hero with them?

That's brilliant idea....

Nice!... I would love to buy someone Rock Band for their wedding. That would be really funny. Then again, you could try to make the case that it has something to do with working together in life, team work, and providing them both with the tools for a succesful marriage... or some such BS!

Wow, that could almost sound convincing!... Almost!

 :D   LOL!~    :D

Mine does.  She's the one who convinced me to get Rock Band before Christmas so we can play it this weekend with all the relatives.

But to clarify, she doesn't really play many other games.  Mainly the party games on the Wii.

Rude, if you get me Rock Band, you're TOTALLY invited to the wedding.  Free beer too.

I have tried but she can't get into it. I know I can get her to play Rock Band more because she likes to sing.

Mine has played a few times with me on co-op.  I don't think there's any appeal for her to play it by herself though.  As long as there's multiplayer, she's up for it.
She likes to watch me play Guitar Hero every so often because I put on a great show.  ;D
And it works out great for me because I don't get dirty looks for playing a video game while she's around.   ;D

My wife sits on the couch and makes fun of me while I play Guitar Hero.  It's sort of like having an anti-groupie.

She likes Karaoke Revolution, though, and she really gets into it once she's playing.  First I have to overcome the coefficient of static gaming friction, though.  It's like pulling teeth to get her to start playing, but once she gets going, she ends up staying up all night belting out standards.

Chicks are weird.

So I went to Best Buy during lunch and I stopped by the demo to play the drums....

Holy shit that's some major fun.

I'm right there with you.  I just got back from Best Buy, where I had my first opportunity to really spend some time with the drums.  (The local urchins were still in school for a change.)  What an absolute blast.

They did seem kind of easy.  I was playing on Expert and getting like 92% percent on most of the demo songs.  And that was with the yellow pad not functioning at all, and me playing with Lefty Flip on to decrease the number of yellow notes.  I assume the pedal adds a whole new dimension of difficulty, but without it, drumming is a bit of a cakewalk.  I still loved it, though.

It's killing me that I can not have this game right now.  I'm not sure when I'd get to play it, though.  Doesn't seem like the family would appreciate me thwappin' away on the pads at 3 AM while they're trying to sleep.

I had to beg the last guy I dated to play any video games with me.  I love them, he hated them.  Go figure.

That shouldn't be too hard:



Do you just want me to send you a list of acceptable DVDs, or are you just gonna' ship them all to me at 50cents a piece?  ;)

Rude, you're not too far from the truth there.

Yes, reviving the 11 year old thread.


A note from Harmonix:
Quote
We have an important Rock Band Network update to share. Unfortunately, ALL RBN songs on ALL legacy consoles (Xbox 360, PlayStation®3, and Nintendo Wii) will no longer be available for purchase from the Rock Band Music Store beginning later this month. As with other delisted content, owners on every platform can continue to play previously purchased and downloaded RBN songs as desired. However, due to technical reasons, Xbox 360 owners will not be able to redownload these songs if they are somehow removed from your storage device. We apologize for this inconvenience, but do note that the Xbox 360 supports flash drives and external hard drives if you would like to back up your content. PlayStation®3 owners will continue to have the ability to redownload as needed. These songs were never available for purchase or playable in Rock Band 4. All songs available on Rock Band 4 are not affected, regardless of source.

So, got a 360? Download all your songs to a back up if you ever want to play them again.

Yeah it's a shame they couldn't revive RBN for Xbox One.
