(so I can get a post in this epic thread before the forums come down)
The Drake is my Frontman; I shall not be worthy.
He maketh me to melt faces in slovenly bars:
He leadeth me to packed arenas.
He restoreth my soul:
He leadeth me in the power chords of rawk for His name' sake.
Yea, though I walk through the forums of the shadow of Rock Band 3,
I will fear no evil: For the Drake art with me;
Thy keys and thy pro guitar, they comfort me.
Thou preparest a stage before me in the presence of mine Guitar Hero cohorts;
Thou annointest my head with rawk; My cup runneth over with bacon.
Surely goodness and face melting shall follow me all the days of my career,
and I will dwell in the House of the Drake forever.
R.I.P. RB 2 forums.
5+ years, 4,000+ songs, 1 awesome developer. Thank you!
Guys, I just wanted to pop back in from the road to say THANK YOU.
Thank you for supporting us during a crazy launch.
Thank you for playing this game, being patient when kinks are being worked out and supporting each other (and n00bs) who are trying to get their rock on for the first time.
Thank you for making the mods and HMX employees feel like the butt-busting they do every day is worth it.
And thank you for giving us your feedback in a constructive and helpful way. We don't want anyone to have any problems when playing Rock Band 3 and we'll continue to try to support you as best we can. Please be nice to the people who read your tweets, emails and forum posts. They're hustling for you.
Big ups to HMXHenry, MrPope, HMXThrasher, all the non-HMX Mods and the entire web team, who have built this palace of RockBand.com for us to hang in. There are more changes and surprises coming, but they've gone above and beyond to make RockBand.com a real extension of the world the rest of the games team has built.
I hope like crazy that all of you are enjoying the new game play, having fun locally and online, and linking your accounts here so we can all share what's going on. Keep talking to us, here, on Twitter, on Facebook and everywhere else.
Thank you for Drake-a-palooza. It was a bizarre and weird extension of the work we do every day and I was honored. If you keep having fun, we'll keep making craziness.
PS. For those of you who have diverse musical tastes and are on 360, get psyched for Dance Central. We're not content with ONE crazy launch this fall... . Until later...Rock On.
