Rock Band Restock 02/23-02/25
Next week, MTV Games & the Harmonix crew will be bringing a couple of tracks from the Finnish band H.I.M. For the uninitiated, His Infernal Majesty (H.I.M.) has had most of their success overseas. But, they did have their breakout hit here in the ‘States called Wings of a Butterfly back in...

Playstation Store Refresh 02/11/10
This week’s Playstation Store update has a lot of awesome sauce in it. First, you’ll find a Burnout Paradise bundle for a really good price as you can get the game & all the DLC for $30. Also, Trine has a 50% price reduction, available for only $10. It’s certainly worth it at that...

Rock Band Restock 02/09-02/11
Megadeth returns to Rock Band this week with Rust in Peace, one of the best metal albums of the 1980’s. Released in 1986, it was big for me personally as at 11 years old, I was just starting to transition away from the Top 40/Adult Contemporary music my Mom listened to (trust me, one can only listen...

Apparently gamers who haven’t been able to upgrade to an HD display are have been having trouble reading the many lines of text in the recently launched Mass Effect 2. There’s even a thread about it in the official forums. Bioware’s response? Well, according to Mass Effect Project...

Rock Band Restock 1/18-1/21
*sigh* Is it sad that I look forward to the Rock Band & Guitar Hero music updates so much that I feel totally let down when I don’t see the artists I want to see? Don’t get me wrong, Tom Petty rocks. But, I’m itching for some more mainstream modern content (read: released in the...

Holiday Gift Guide – Music Games

Holiday Gift Guide – Music Games
By far the ultimate in-person social experience, the music gaming genre has grown over the years from a nitch novelty to a full blown category. Credit Guitar Hero for taking it to the next level. Now, we have so many different titles that it can be tough to decide which one to get. Hopefully this guide...

Spike 2009 VGA Recap

Spike 2009 VGA Recap
Ever since 2003, Spike TV has had their annual awards show honoring the best the video game industry has to offer. At the beginning, it was terrible. I remember watching the first show & it seemed more like a huge marketing campaign than an show honoring the best the industry has to offer. But over...

Well, it’s about time! Slipknot finally makes it to Rock Band! I hope this is a sign of things to come & soon we’ll see more mainstream rock bands in their library *cough* Seether, Red *cough*. Heck, I’d be happy with some of the older Creed material like Torn or My Own Prison....

Rock Band DLC: Week Of 11/24
Thanksgiving is a time for everyone to eat a ton of food. Once we have consumed so much that we can’t actually leave our chairs, we are forced to sit there & reflect on everything in our lives & give thanks for all the good stuff (while plotting revenge for all the bad stuff). Fans of rock...

Review: Abbey Road Beatles: Rock Band DLC (360)

Review: Abbey Road Beatles: Rock Band DLC (360)
If you’ve been following the site, you already know how I fell about Beatles: Rock Band (you can see my review here…). Ultimately it was a fine improvement on the franchise, although the music selection won’t be for everyone. If you don’t care for The Beatles, you won’t...

Review: Queen Rock Band Track Pack (360)

Review: Queen Rock Band Track Pack (360)
This is a first for me. No, not the review; I’ve been reviewing games here for months & in my head for as long as I can remember. What’s a first for me is reviewing a track pack for a music game. I don’t mean those disks with 20 or 30 songs on it. I mean a DLC track pack. With new...

I’ll start this edition off with a question: How is Rock Band for iPhone/iTouch? As a huge fan of the franchise, I’m curious to see how it transitioned over. Is it just a touch screen version of Unplugged? Anyway, the good folks at EA Mobile announced a couple of songs that are available...
