No Drum Fills for The Beatles: Rock Band

My First Drumset

It didn’t look like there were any during any of the E3 coverage, but Casey Malone from Harmonix confirmed that thinking today on Twitter. Instead, drum overdrive is activated simply by hitting a glowing green note.  The entire path will begin to glow green just before the note is to be hit, so you’ll know that it is an activation note.  What do you think? Can you do without the drum fill overdrive activation in The Beatles: Rock Band, or do you prefer the game more fiction-based with Ringo rocking out impromptu-style on the drums?

    I am fine without them, those midi notes always sound out of place and the whole thing can be more distracting than fun.

    If they actually sound like the right drums for the song, and it still shows the chart under the fill, then I will consider missing them in my Beatles experience. I only hope that not activating doesn’t count as a miss.

    I think that this was done because all those old master tracks are probably difficult to separate so that they could take out the drums without taking out everything else. Just a guess.

    As long as it’s just for this game it’s fine.
