OMG it is sooo awesome! I feel like a silly fangirl but it is honestly one of the best games ever!!! Believe it or not, only 20 copies of the game were released in the Bay area today and Nelson got one!

Nelson and I have two bands, one for me on guitar and him on drums... called Phish Theater. The other, with him on guitar and me on drums is called Dream Pumpkins. His favorite band is Dream Theater, if you couldn't tell. And I'm guessing mine are pretty obvious (and a little more well-known).

We're 244 stars into Phish Theater's world tour and have been playing on hard (both of us) until now... our joints were so sore we had to stop, but the last message we got was that if we want to play at certain venues we have to play at a harder difficulty level! All that's left is expert!

The drums are fun as hell, and I am really pleased with how the guitar turned out. We've both been failing every song on the microphone (except when I sang "Creep") so we're hoping something's wrong with it :( We don't want to admit we're bad singers... Dan, you'll have to let me know what the secret is.

All in all this is going to be a really fun game. There is so much more to do than in Guitar Hero games, and it's going to take us way more than just two days to beat it...

Five stars!

It's possible the mike has a latency issue... There are certain things you can calibrate for it, I believe. On the other hand, it could just be that singing on pitch is tougher than it seems. Which difficulty are you playing at? (I've been playing guitar on Expert, vocals on Hard, drums on Medium...)

Best game ever. My three-person band (switching from instrument to instrument) played for about six hours yesterday and got 150 stars and a jet.

So you're not doing the solo career? I started one for drums but it's nowhere near as interesting as the world tour. You go to each city, play a couple songs, and they send you to the next city. I haven't even figured out a way to return to a previously visited city.

The easy difficulty for vocals. :( Nelson thinks if we turn the mike volume up all the way and turn down the singer's track he might be able to tell if something's wrong with it. We already had to fix the a/v latency. What makes the vocals easy/hard? Is it based on the leeway of how far off your intonation is?

On drums I'm playing medium too. That's the part I'm most excited about! With Guitar Hero (I and II, not III yet), I can beat the whole game on expert in not that much time, but I think it'll take me forever to get good at those drums. And that's a good thing! :)

That sounds awesome! Is it only for Xbox 360 and PS3 though? Cause that would suck.
