Dry your eyes, drummer. We feel your sense of loss at the news that Rock Band 2
may not be getting its promised second kick pedal
after all, ruling out proper reenactments of Lars' two-foot prowess (without a little modding
). Now at least you can improve the quality of that one kicker you do
have, replacing it with something a little more weighty. Nyko's aptly-named Metal Pedal, a bargain at $20, works with both Rock Band
games as well as Guitar Hero: World Tour
on all platforms, and is made of real metal to give a more authentic heft. No, nothing will feel quite like the real thing
, but it's surely better than that cracked hunk of plastic you've been meaning to send back to Harmonix for months.
