Popped in my rockband 2 disc earlier today. The console I'm playing on doesn't have my old band saves on there so I've had to start from the beginning to unlock all the songs again (I've been working on doing this for a few months now, I seldom play).
So today I played expert drums for a bit on the tour, had a lot of fun with that. Unlocked the third venure of a city (it was London I believe). Saw a 5 song set, think it was called 'The United Kingdom Showcase'.
I checked what songs were on it: Aqua Lung, Pinball Wizard, Ace of Spades, Painkiller... said "aww **** idk if I can handle that right now.", and then noticed Panic Attack.
I said to myself 'aww hellz yeah!' I'd been waiting months to unlock Panic Attack so I can play it again. So I back out and switch to guitar. Played the set. I gold starred Aqua Lung, 5* on Pinball Wizard, Gold Stars on Ace of Spades, and then got 5 stars on both Painkiller and Panic Attack!
I nearly failed out at the end of the first solo in Painkiller but 5 stars nonetheless. And still not quite as good as I used to play these songs. Playing songs like Panic Attack especially, trying to always getting a better score than the best score I previously espablished, is what raised me to the peak of my skills a few years ago, when rb2 was still actively played online. I miss those days.
Performances like this (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W4LUxAlargg&feature=plcp) are what I really miss. that's me on guitar in a full band with my buddies. Good times
P.S. That video was recorded by my friend OKPEEPS who was on drums. We're all in my band on world tour mode. He was one of my first friends on psn, met him playing guitar hero 3 . Cool dude he is, feel free to check out some of his other videos, he's got a lot of good ones.
