20 bucks for 25 songs is a great deal.

They didn't release the identity of any more of the songs coming with the game?
I miss the good old days of WW2 Call of Duty

I'm going to wait until this is on sale. 10 bucks for 25 songs is an even better deal.

I'm a little disappointed on this one... I was pretty much expecting an Amplitude/Frequency remake with the Rock Band name now attached to it. Having no difficulty doesn't really give me a challenge to strive for. I've never been one to try to just beat my own high score (unless it's for an old school arcade game). I'll definitely give it a try though and make my own personal thoughts about it in the end anyway laugh.

Good work Matrarch!

Thanks. :) It really wasn't quite what I was expecting at all, but it IS fun.

One of the power-ups available was a pinball one. Every now and again, you'd see a purple note and hitting that would activate the power-up. In this case, a pinball would be released and you'd have to try to match the active track the pinball came down on to keep it going. It was pretty fun. Not Amplitude or Frequency, but fun in its own right. :)

This sounds like its going to be on those games that is good for 5 minutes but really doesn't make you want to play it all the time. It would probably be better released as some kind of phone app from the look and sound of it.

Sounds alot like FreQ and Amplitude as far as concept, and I love it., Is it supposed to be the runway style like Amplitude? Will likely be a day one purchase for me.

Good job Matrarch! I am pretty sure this will be an insta-buy for me. It sounds good and the free 25 song export to RB3 is awesome.

There's no way this will be 1600 MSP, even with the free rb3 tracks.

"No difficulty" means that there is no choice of Easy, Medium, Hard or Expert. It doesn't mean it's easy; basically you can only play on Expert. I played several songs at the booth at PAX and believe me there is plenty of difficulty.

If it does, there goes the casual gamer appeal.
