Today is Tuesday, which means that you somehow made it through Monday. Once you’ve done that, you know you can make it through the rest of the week, because we all know that Monday is the worst day. Since you survived yesterday, you’ll be rewarded with three new tracks for Rock Band. Hit the jump for this week’s DLC list.
They say that the best things in life are free, and that’s usually true. Even if you don’t agree with that statement, you have to admit that getting free stuff is awesome. If you’re looking for some free Rock Band tracks, and happen to be a big fan of South Park, you’re in for a treat.
One of the games that really caught people off guard last year was Portal. I remember thinking that it was going to be some simple game that I would forget soon after playing. However, it was just as much fun as any of the other games in the Orange Box. While it didn’t last long, people are producing new levels for it all the time, and today I’ve discovered an awesome collection of new custom levels.
I always talk about the abundance of DLC for Rock Band as one of the game’s best features. Unfortunately, with so much music to choose from, it’s also something of a downside. Okay, so they’re not exactly twisting your arm to buy it, but you can easily spend a lot of money picking up extra tracks. However, thanks to a partnership with McDonald’s, you’ll be able to pick up some tracks on the cheap.
Everyone knows that Rock Band is treated to fresh new DLC every single week, however, Guitar Hero III is slowly building a nice library of tracks as well. This Thursday Guitar Hero rockers will be able to pick up a new three pack of Muse to play along with. Hit the jump for the track listing.
Mondays suck, there’s no denying it. The only time that they’re really that great is when there’s a three-day weekend. At least Monday means you’ve only got one day to wait until you get new tracks for Rock Band. Hit the jump to see what they’ve got in store for you tomorrow.
I just got word yesterday that in this week’s DLC for Rock Band we’ll be seeing Zero from the Smashing Pumpkins. I’ve been waiting around to hear this news for a very long time. Sure, I’m a huge Pumpkins fan, but that’s not why. I’ve known about this particular song being being included in the game since I visited Harmonix last November. As a special weekend treat, I give you the first ever gameplay video of Zero for Rock Band after the jump.
Rock Band has been out for a while now, and Harmonix has been true to their word about providing fresh DLC on a weekly basis. This has given us fresh new music to rock to, and thus keeps the gameplay fresh and fun. What we haven’t seen is a full album released. Again, Harmonix is good on their word, and will be releasing their first full album tomorrow.
Since Rock Band was announced last year, we’ve known that there would be much competition between it and the Guitar Hero franchise. I try to stay as neutral as possible, as each as their own strengths. We haven’t seen the competition heat up much lately, though I’m sure it will once either Guitar Hero Aerosmith or GH IV hits the market. However, we just told you last week that Def Leppard was releasing a new single through Guitar Hero, and now we hear that Mötley Crüe will be doing the same in Rock Band today.
Despite only being in my 20’s I love classic rock. Sure, there is plenty of newer rock, but give me some 70’s rock and I’m a happy guy. Naturally, I’m happy to hear that Harmonix is releasing what they are calling the Classic Rock Pack 01 for Rock Band this week. Hit the jump for the track listing.
