Don’t get me wrong, I’m not advocating passing on LEGO Rock Band at all. In addition to a stellar setlist with some fun pop/rock classics and lesser-known gems that are exportable into other titles, I’ve played with the game with friends who have little ones who can’t seem to put the game down. What I am advocating is that you don’t buy the game on Xbox Live’s ‘Games on Demand’ service.
While the game is attractively priced at $19.99, you can find it cheaper over at Amazon.com for all three consoles. In addition, there are reports that the game is not currently allowing exporting of songs into Rock Band 2 or Rock Band 3, mostly because there is no manual with ‘Games on Demand,’ therefore no export code. I have a feeling this may be corrected in the future, but I think it’s in the average person’s best interests to pick up the game in physical form via more traditional outlets for the time being.
I promised earlier that I was going to be giving away a copy of Lego Rock Band for the Xbox 360 once I hit 4,000 followers on Twitter, but I decided to give up on that, and instead would rather brighten someone’s holiday by sending out the prize to the winner before Christmas.
So, here’s what you have to do to win:
- Make sure you’re following @RockBandAide on Twitter.
- Tweet out the following: “I want to win Lego Rock Band on the Xbox 360 from @RockBandAide today! http://bit.ly/LRBGiveaway #LRBGiveaway“ Make sure you include all that in your tweet. I’ll be selecting the winner using Twitrand.com searching for that exact text string.
- Come back to this post here and enter a comment posting your Twitter name.
- Only one entry per person, per prize, please.
- Unlike previous Twitter contests, anyone is eligible (not just those in the US this time)! I’m not sure if Xbox 360 games are region coded, so if you enter, PLEASE make sure that you can actually use the prize if you win it. Shipping is at my expense, so if you are overseas and win, don’t expect it overnighted!
- I will do a random drawing tonight after 8:00 p.m. EST and notify the winners.
That’s it! Good luck!
I’ve designed my in-game character to look like me, but this band took it to the next level. They designed THEMSELVES to look like their Lego Rock Band counterparts at last night’s Umloud event!
And they get bonus points for the T-Rex on drums!!!
OK, I keep tripping over different contests, and I’m a sucker for giving my info out to marketers in the chance of winning free stuff, but I’ve been pretty successful in the past, so I thought hopefully one of the readers here might be, as well. Here’s the contests I’ve stumbled over the past few days that are Rock Band related. Good luck! Make sure to thank me if you win anything!

“Ohh… it’s a kids game!” “It’s Lego? OMG FAIL!” “This is a joke, right?!”
If that sounds like you, quit your whining and check out the list below of the top ten reasons to get Lego Rock Band (as written by Bingegamer.net).
I was going to review LEGO Rock Band but if you don’t know what a Rock Band game is like by now then I can’t help you — and I know we all hate lists, but this is a strong one on reasons why you should buy LEGO Rock Band.
10.) You Are Supporting the “Not Having Seven ‘Hero’ Games a Year” Movement.
While Harmonix does indeed offer DLC every week, they do not over-saturate the rhythm market to the point of it being in your face every other month.
9.) Easy Achievements
Its those great kind of achievements that you get just by playing the game. No searching every level for a hidden skull or any crap like that, just play your best and you’ll end up with more than half of the 1,000 gamerscore points.
8.) It’s For Everybody
Seriously, this game is for every single person, drunk players or families have lots of options:
‘Super Easy’ mode where players only have to strum the notes at the right time (you can hold down ANY fret button) There is an option available to automate the kick pedal for the drums for kids with short legs or those with leg disabilities. There’s a toggle for the short “radio edit” version of a track design for young children with short attention spans.
Yeah you go on tour, but while on tour there are many crazy challenges that await you. These challenges are a huge part of the game and make it a little different than playing regular Rock Band, in a fun way. An example: a song plays while you fight of a giant damn octopus! It’s cool, you still get money and fans.
