Rock Band Weekly DLC – NIN and Shinedown

Well, E3 is over, which means this week will no doubt be a little slower on the major gaming announcements. However, you can always count on the guys at Harmonix to bring us a little something new every week. This week they've given us some Nine Inch Nails and Shinedown to look forward to.

Duke Nukem Trilogy trailer will blow your mind

So there's a new Duke Nukem game coming out. Well, a new trilogy of games to be precise. If you value your brain cell in the least, and don't want to lose four minutes of your life I beg of you not to hit the jump and watch the trailer. However, if you're already half brain-dead and/or have absolutely nothing better to do for the next few minutes, then be my guest.

Microsoft recently announced that the Xbox 360 Dashboard will be getting a makeover, with one of the new additions being the Avatars. If you're wondering what other changes you can look forward to, then hit the jump for a brief overview.

Guitar Hero: World Tour screenshots show off new UI

Guitar Hero: World Tour screenshots show off new UI

With Guitar Hero: World Tour featuring four instruments, one has to wonder just how similar the UI is going to be to that other game with four instruments. Well Activision has released a few screenshots of their upcoming title, and I must say, it does look rather familiar.

KOTOR MMO confirmed!

KOTOR MMO confirmed!

We've been hearing rumors about a possible KOTOR MMO for what seems like ages now. Most recently we've seen a few trademark filings from LucasArts that sounded an awful lot like an MMO. Well we finally have our official confirmation on the matter from EA.

Activision confirms compatibility with Rock Band instruments in Guitar Hero: World Tour

Activision confirms compatibility with Rock Band instruments in Guitar Hero: World Tour

I have to admit that I've been pretty unhappy with Activision over the whole guitar incompatibility issue. Sure, I rock out on my 360 so I haven't had any issues, however, one of my best friends is more of a PS3 guy. He's only dropped the cash for a single Guitar Hero controller, however, his Rock Band Strat sits there begging to be used. Well it seems that this won't be such an issue for the next GH title.

Nintendo officially announces Wii Music

Nintendo officially announces Wii Music

It's no small secret that rhythm games are immensely popular right now. We've got the Guitar Hero and Rock Band franchises trying to one-up each other with their next release, Konami is poised to release their own Rock Revolution and even Nintendo is looking to get a piece of the action with their own Wii Music which was officially announced at E3.

Sony launches PSN video delivery service

Sony launches PSN video delivery service

Watching movies on your PS3 isn't anything special, though having Blu-ray is nice. However, that's something you've been able to do since launch. Now what about downloading new movies straight to your console, then watching them? Well it's finally a reality on your PS3.

Guitar Hero: On Tour gets a sequel this Fall

Guitar Hero: On Tour gets a sequel this Fall

I'm all for having sequels for popular games, I really am. However, there's a point when I wonder how soon is too soon, and how many is too many. Take Guitar Hero: On Tour for example. I didn't particularly care for the game or its controller, however, the game sold rather well, which might make one think they would start putting out DS versions of their series out on a semi-regular basis. I just didn't expect them to have one geared up and ready to be released in a mere matter of months.

Metallica to release Death Magnetic album as DLC for GH III, IV

Metallica to release Death Magnetic album as DLC for GH III, IV

I have to admit that my love for Metallica has been waning over the past several years. Not only has their music not been as great, but ever since they started promoting the suing of fans for downloading music, I've just not been as excited by their music. One place that I still enjoy hearing it is in both Guitar Hero and Rock Band.  Well it looks like I might actually purchase their latest album, this time for Guitar Hero, marking the first time I've cared to obtain an entire Metallica album in a decade or so.
