Finally a U2 RockBand?
« on: October 07, 2009, 09:54:43 AM »
just saw the article on the front page and now im really hoping this is a project in the works. i can see a deluxe version coming with ripoff shades and a beanie.

but more importantly, if you had to make a list of 50 songs that were featured on the game, what would they be? ill be posting mine soon as well.

How about these 50 (selecting live versions whenever they are better than the original):

Boy - Out of Control
War - Like a Song
UABRS - I Will Follow, The Cry/Electric Co., Gloria, SBS, NYD, 40
UF - Bad, Pride, Wire, TUF
JT - Streets, ISHFWILF, WOWY, RTASS, IGC, OTH, Exit
R&H - Silver & Gold, BTBS
AB - One, UTEOTW, The Fly, MW, Ultraviolet
ZR - Stay
Pop - Gone, Mofo, Discotheque
ATYCLB - BD, SIAM, Elevation, Walk On
HTDAAB - Vertigo, SYCMIOYO, ABOY, COBL
NLOTH - NLOTH, Magnificent, Boots, Crazy, MOS, Breathe, SUC, F-BB
Other - HMTMKMKM, Electrical Storm, LWTSH, WITS

I'd like to see you be able to choose to perform as Popmart Adam at Red Rocks or Mullet Bono in 360, just to mix it up a bit.

I hope this happens - I really want to bring out my inner Bono!

*I'm only capable - barely! - of vocals.  No other musical talent.  Just ask my kids!*

I hope it happens, because I'd love to play these songs!  8)

I hope it doesn't happen, because I don't wanna spend $300 on it.  :(

Most of these games have upwards of 80 plus add ons via online, but i threw 50 out as a starting figure. but yes, i would definately drop $150 or even more if they release a deluxe version like they did with the beatles.

I liked the idea of choosing Bono from different era's. Mcphisto would be my top pic. I've always wanted to play Sunday Bloody Sunday on the drums. It's such a drum song but I've never seen it on any of the other rockbands.

What an awful idea. Why not give people U2Studio, where you could remix and redub over original tracks?

GASP!!!  This would be amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In our circle of friends there would be a little battle over who would be Edge (LOL) we'd have to find ourselves an Adam/Larry, but the best news of all, NS would instantly jump at the chance to be Bono and knows all the songs.... it's win all around :D

I'm just imagining Edge through his career with various stages of hair loss and hat changeups, so excellent.  And animated PopMart Edge?  I can't even tell you how thrilled this makes me.  I don't know that I'd ever leave the house again.

I would also beg for Edge's harmonies along with Bono's lead as they've got in the Beatles Rock Band version.

Plus.  This game is nothing, unless you dress up.  LOL @ the deluxe version with the beanie and wrap around shades.

As for songs:

Boy - I Will Follow, Out of Control
War - SBS, NYD, SECONDS - SO I CAN SING :D :D :D, Two Hearts, Surrender (OK, I went a bit crazy on "War", but it's hard to drop any of this)
October - Gloria, I would say Tomorrow, however... you'd HAVE to have a keyboard or it would just be silly.
UF - Bad, Pride, TUF
JT - Streets, ISHFWILF, WOWY, RTSS, Bullet, IGH, Exit (I want to go CRAZY on this in my rec room... AHHH!HH!HH!H!)
R&H - Silver & Gold
AB - THE WHOLE ALBUM!  Seriously though, EBBTRT, One, UTEOTW - and PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE ANIMATE THE BULLFIGHT, Wild Horses, The Fly, MW, UV, LIB Live!
Zooropa - Stay
Pop - Gone, Discotheque, Please, LNOE
ATYCLB - BD, SIAM, Elevation, Walk On
HTDAAB - Vertigo, SYCMIOYO, ABOY, COBL, Miracle Drug, OOTS
NLOTH - NLOTH, Magnificent, Boots, Crazy, MOS, Breathe
Other - HMTMKMKM, Electrical Storm

That's exactly 50, and that's exactly perfect to me :)

To each their own.  What about both ;)

This was the idea back when ZOO TV came out; you were supposed to be able to make your own U2 videos over song remixes for the SEGA CD System. Anyone remember this?
