I've bought the game, learned the ropes, unlocked all power-ups, and started trying to Gold all the songs in the game.
Even when I play absolutely fantastically, grab all the notes I can, get all the special notes and release my power-ups at great moments, I still come up short most of the time for Gold.
Who do you actually expect to Gold star this game? I'm a very good player and a drummer, which is needed for this game since everything is just percussion based now, and I just rock the **** out of the songs and it's still just out of reach. Sometimes by a hair, it's so ridiculous.
I think your bar set for Gold is kind of ridiculous. Especially since more songs don't properly fit into their checkpoints and the keyboard sustains are just God awful and point wasting.
Let's lower it a bit for your typical players and maybe leave the current Gold standings for those just looking to get the highest scores. These Gold levels are call for extarordinary talent that just isn't worth my time trying songs over and over for miss by a notch.
It wouldn't be so bad if I could restart as well or try again with ease, but the redundant coin system does nothing but hinder your progress and in itself is just pointless. Give us our power-ups and let us focus on scores rather than having to stop and grind coins. It makes Golding unappealing and playing songs just for coins completely unappealing.
A song count in the menus
A fraction indicator to let you know how many you've played (54/754 songs)
Not reloading DLC if you back out to the title screen
Connecting to Rock Band Central before loading DLC so you don't waste your time if the server is down
That's it. Rant out
