(Update!) iOS Rock Band app unplayable after May 31

If you're a fan of the music game Rock Band and have the app on your iPhone or iPad you may notice a pop-up that has been showing on the game. According to the pop-up, the mobile game won't be playable after May 31.

Sony PS3 Mass Effect 3 multiplayer events may be coming soon

Apparently Sony is working on getting the online multiplayer events for Mass Effect 3, which have until now only been live on the Xbox 360 and PC, to the PS3 console.

Mass Effect 3 copies tied to weather balloons and sent aloft

I have played both the first and second titles in the Mass Effect franchise and these are some my favorite games ever.

If you want to get your hands on the game a full week before it hits stores, you don't need to be professional game reviewer; you just need to have some spare time.

EA Announces Bulletstorm Demo Landing on Xbox LIVE and PSN January 25th

Bulletstorm is one of those rare titles that, even if you see all the videos and read all the reviews on it, you still need to actually play it to get a sense of what the game is about, and why it's so unique in its place amongst all of the other First Person Shooter (FPS) titles out there.

Harmonix Confirms They’ll Keep IP Rights to Rock Band and Dance Central

With the official announcement from Viacom and developer Harmonix that the two companies would be splitting up, and the latter would be considered an independent studio again, there was some confusion as to what the future of downloadable content (DLC) would look like for both games.

The developer has confirmed to Joystiq that they do indeed still own the IP rights for both games, and that everything is still up to them.
