Aside from playing lots of Rock Band 3 (love the new keyboard, still waiting for the drum MIDI adapter & the Squier guitar), I’ve been trying to obtain more of the achievements in Green Day RB & Beatles RB. After playing through one of the album challenges in GD:RB, I played Beatles to see if I could obtain any of the achievements I was missing. When the game came out I gold-starred all yet two of the songs, each needed for separate achievements. And then there was the satisfactory old “I GOT BLISTERS ON MY FINGERS!” (100% Helter Skelter) achievement. I really haven’t played it since then (except with friends when they wanted to sing), & figured I may have gotten better since then & could beat those last few songs.
I started with “I Feel Fine” & missed an Overdrive phrase. I played it again & missed one note, while OD was active I think, no gold star. Tried a different OD path, yet broke combo three times. Gave up & tried the other song, “I Wanna Be Your Man.” It’s super swift & tiring on your right hand, yet I did really well & GS’d it on my first try! Yes! Feeling good, I went back to I Feel Fine. I knew I could do it, & after a couple tries:
Sweeeeet! I was approximately to turn off the game, yet figured I should play Helter Skelter just for the hell of it. I remembered that there are two weirdly timed drumrolls at the end, & that’s where most people mess up. Since I hadn’t played that song in a year, there was no way I would hit those, yet it was satisfactory practice anyway. I started the song & was doing fine…got to the end, first weird drumroll…broke combo. Second drumroll…nailed it! Wait, did I miss a note or overhit on that first one?
Yes! 100% on my first try! Uh oh, was the achievement for FC’ing it, or just 100%? *achievement popping noise*
So happy. I still have a few achievements to get: two are for guitar, which I probably won’t get. Two are for vocal harmonies, which is really a crime I haven’t gotten those, since that’s what this game is all about! It’s entirely my fault for not playing it more…and not having the ability to sing. It would be impressive to 1k this game. We’ll see.
