The week of E3 is always big (even if the show is getting smaller and smaller with each passing year), so this week's DLC should be equally as large. We've been expecting a full album from The Who, however, due to some missing masters, we'll just have to settle for an awesome compilation of Who tracks.
This week's DLC update brings us a curious mix of Rush and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Rather than the usual trio of songs that we're used to seeing, we get two songs from each band. But that's not the only strange thing about this week's content. Hit the jump to see what I mean.
How many of you have seen the movie Top Gun? Now, of those people, how many of you had aspirations of one day flying your own F-14 Tomcat? If you answered yes to the first question but no to the second, you're lying. Everyone wanted to fly a jet after that movie. That, and buy a motorcycle. Well since most of us didn't actually live out that dream, we'll just have to settle for downloading the movie's theme song on Guitar Hero III.
A little while back it was announced that Rock Band was going to be rocking Crüefest, which kicks off today. So it only makes sense for Harmonix to release a few Crüefest-themed tracks, right? Hit the jump to see what will be available for download today.
It seems that the merger between Activision and Blizzard is already beginning to bear fruit. So how does one combine two of the largest titles from each company into something cool for the masses? You release a World of Warcraft song for Guitar Hero.
Today is Tuesday, which usually means a three-pack of songs to download for Rock Band. However, they've decided to change things up this week by not only giving you a trio of tracks, but they're also putting up an entire album from the Pixies. Hit the jump for the details.
I was born in the 80's, which means I did most of my growing up in the 90's listening to alternative music. I've really been happy that Rock Band has been bringing back some of the songs I know and love so that a new generation can really enjoy them. I listened to a good bit of Offspring back in the day, which is why I'm happy to hear that they're going to be adding more tracks to the game in the future.
I'm starting to like this trend of seeing new music released on Rock Band at the same time it is released to the general public for purchase. The latest track to follow this trend comes to us from The Offspring. Check out the list of tracks available today after the jump.
Avenged Sevenfold “Afterlife”
Avenged Sevenfold“Critical Acclaim”
The Offspring “Hammerhead”
Crooked X “Rock ‘n’ Roll Dream”
There is no track pack this week, so you'll have to pick and choose which tracks you want. The first three listed are going to set you back the usual $1.99 (160 Microsoft Points for Xbox 360), while the Crooked X track will only run $.99 (80 Microsoft Points for Xbox 360).
I hate watching commercials. I don't watch much TV, and would like to get the most out of the times I do sit in front of the boob tube. This would be why most of what I watch is already pre-recorded, thanks to a DVR. However, commercials do serve a purpose. Not only do they inform potential customers of products and services for sale, they also leak the occasional bit of unannounced news.
So we've all been waiting around to hear the announcement of when the album “Who's Next” will be showing up on Rock Band. I know that I was pretty surprised when the first full album ended up being from the Cars. Well, while Harmonix has made no official announcements on the matter, we may have found a cause for the delay, straight from the mouth of Pete Townshend himself. Hit the jump for a quote.
