Rock Band Weekly DLC – Judas Priest is Screaming For Vengeance

Rock Band Weekly DLC – Judas Priest is Screaming For Vengeance

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.

Rock Band to join Mötley Crüe on tour!

Yesterday we announced that Mötley Crüe was releasing a brand-new single as a downloadable track for Rock Band. That was awesome to hear, however, Harmonix has announced that they are going one step further by joining the band on tour.

Behold! Record Label, the latest game from Harmonix

Behold! Record Label, the latest game from Harmonix

As you well know, April Fool's Day falls on the first day of the month. Unfortunately I think Harmonix missed that memo. Perhaps they thought that they might get a few suckers by waiting a few days to pull your prank. It's still pretty funny, even if it is over a week late. I give you Record Label.

Guitar Hero III Mobile coming to BlackBerry – For Those About to Rock!

Guitar Hero III Mobile coming to BlackBerry – For Those About to Rock!

Hands-on Mobile and Magmic Games are the two companies that are partnered up in an effort to bring one of the best mobile games of all time to your BlackBerry. Being a primarily business oriented device the BlackBerry has been passed up on a lot of really cool mobile games, but this is one that you can mark off the list.

Personally I am just wondering if you’ll have access to all 5 frets or if they are sticking with the three frets that previous mobile versions have offered up. When you first download the game you’ll get 15 tracks including “Cherub Rock”, “Miss Murder”, “Monsters”, “Suck My Kiss”, and “Trippin On A Hole”.

Harmonix is still on board for user-created tracks…someday

Harmonix is still on board for user-created tracks…someday

Last week I brought you the news that Guitar Hero publisher Activision is really working hard at trying to put user-generated tracks into the game, even if won't be ready for another 5 years or more. We already knew that Harmonix wants to do the same thing for Rock Band, and from a recent interview with Greg LoPiccolo, their stance hasn't changed much.

Harmonix exceeds sales expectations with Rock Band, earns a big check from Viacom

Harmonix exceeds sales expectations with Rock Band, earns a big check from Viacom

You have to hand it to Harmonix, when it comes to rhythm games, they always seem to be on top of things. While they had success with previous titles, they really changed the industry with Guitar Hero, and kept the momentum going with Guitar Hero 2. When they parted ways with Red Octane they decided it was time to start another revolution with Rock Band, which just landed them a huge $209 million bonus from Viacom.

Rumor – Rock Band may not hit most European consoles until September

Rumor – Rock Band may not hit most European consoles until September

There are some things that just make a person feel very patriotic. One of the big reasons why I love the US is because we don't get screwed on release dates like some countries. Sure, Japan got Super Smash Bros. Brawl a month before we did, big deal. That's nothing to the wait Europe has for most titles. If rumors are to be believed, some European rockers may have to wait until September before getting their Rock Band on.

Rock Band DLC for February 5

Rock Band DLC for February 5

It's Tuesday, and that means there are fresh tracks just waiting to be downloaded for Rock Band. Well, that's if you're an Xbox 360 owner. My apologies to all of the PS3 rockers out there, you still have to wait an extra two days for your new tracks. While I can't say that this week's tracks are some of my favorite tunes, they are all master tracks. This week's bands are KISS, Faith No More and the B-52's. Hit the jump for the track listing.
