Rockband: "84 Song Muscles"
Posted: Friday March 27th, 2009 by

I got an urge to play Rock Band a few days ago, and while flipping through the venues, I saw the Endless Setlist 2 again. It was just sitting there, taunting me. 84 songs in a row with no break. Sure you can pause the game as soon as a song starts and, as long as you get back before the guitar (wireless) turns itself off, you're fine; you can finish the set. But there is an achievement for just playing straight through it all without pausing or failing. Appropriately enough it's called "The Bladder of Steel Award".

I think maybe my recent focus on Achievements in WoW is egging this compulsion to try the Endless Setlist 2 without a break. **shrugs** Who knows? I do know I'd like to give it a serious go. I just can't imagine when I'd enough time to try. For those of you that are curious, it's right around 6 hours 15 minutes if you're going for Bladder of Steel. More like 6.5 to 7 if you're human.

So why am I blaming Pearl Jam? I've known for a while that Pearl Jam's sminal album Ten was coming to Rock Band as DLC. But in the last week the promotions for it have really cranked up. Thinking about playing songs from one of my favorite albums drew me back into wanting to just play the game. And as I mentioned above, giving in and playing the game lead me to see the Endless Setlist 2 again. See? It's all Pearl Jam's fault.

To clarify any other points, I'm assuming that playing Rock Band for 6 hours and 15 minutes is going to hurt, especially with my shoulder blade still aching. And, yes, I am my own boss.
