i dont see one made up yet, any chance i could help (or start) making one?

and if so, i hope to narrow down and confirm what songs will help get whatever achievements are associated with them. i will also be playing for quite some time.

I put a post in the Achievement Discussion thread a little while ago (you can skip to the last two paragraphs):

Yes. Face Melter is ONLY unlockable on guitar. The 53K HOPO achievement is also ONLY unlockable by playing guitar (bass HOPOs count towards bass goals but not towards THAT achievement). The achievement description isn't completely clear on that. :p


I wanted to ask you guys this last week:

Has anyone started working on a Rock Band 3 achievement guide yet? A handful of people got the game early, but no guide was posted. I wasn't sure if one was written and it just hadn't been posted or not. If no one got around to it, I could post a temp guide Wednesday evening for everyone. Some of the achievement descriptions are not completely clear and a guide would make short work of some of these cheevos.

I made some notes about some of them and some helpful tips that might be useful to some of you. For example:

All challenges with specific custom setlists (like a "Country Custom Setlist") can be changed to meet whatever criteria you need to finish other achievements (Rock Band 3 only, DLC only, etc). The fastest way to get through the achievements would be to work on the DLC achievements in challenges...or whichever ones you want to knock out first. Either way, it's best to start with challenge mode off the bat. And players can work on the RB3 song-related cheevos when the only setlist choices include RB3 songs and random setlists.

And one note about random setlists--when you select one, the top of the screen tell you what songs have been chosen. So you can select and back out of a set until you get the song(s) you need to play for achievements.

Yeah...that's just a little example. It comes across as a bit that belongs in a Road Map, but I think you guys can get an idea of the descriptions with the above. I know that people on this board get outraged if someone works on a guide that they also worked on. But I REALLY just want to make sure that the achievement descriptions can be easily explained to everyone (a guide would help with that). I can't tell you how much time I would've saved on day one with clearer explanations than the ones the game DIDN'T tell me. :p

So if you guys think this sounds like a good idea, just post in this thread and I'll try to have it typed up by Wednesday evening. I have the Pro drums and all the other instruments except the keyboard (I'm getting that by UPS Wednesday) and the Pro guitar (waiting on the Squire next year, so that info would have to be supplied by someone that pre-ordered a Mustang). :)

According to xbox.com, I already have 53% of the achievements (got all of them day one). And I would've gotten more than that if I had good achievement descriptions to go on. :p

Aside from buying new instruments and MAYBE having some difficulties with the Pro mode challenges, this seems like a very doable 1250. It's not a cakewalk, but even for the average Rock Band player it's a realistic possibility (having friends locally to help out with drums or whatever else wouldn't hurt either).

But yeah, for my achievements, I wrote out notes for the ones that didn't have clear descriptions and other little tidbits of info. Like:

*Some songs I played that are good for getting HOPO notes for "HOPO-cidal Maniac"

*All instruments with "Hard difficulty" in their descriptions can be unlocked playing in Expert difficulty

And so on...

I'm going to bed now. But if you guys want me to write one out, just let me know. I'll check later back in the morning and get right on it.

yeah, we should just start on one lol. just to reiterate, the difficulties DO STACK!!!!! anything done on expert also completes it for E, M, and H, so you could technically finish 4 challenges everytime u finish one on expert.
