So I've had Rock Band Wii for a day or so now, and I thought I should be nice and share my thoughts with all of you, just in case you had any doubts or worries before it hits shelves next week. Hit the jump for my full review.
It seems that Rock Band has done moderately well (see: awesome) here in the US, so it's only natural that they're going to want to release the game in other parts of the world. We've known for some time that they were going to have a European release (even if it did take a really long time to get there), but this is the first we've heard about it turning Japanese.
I'm sure that some of you saw the European Rock Band tracks announced a while back and wished that you'd be able to play them here in the US. Well Harmonix hasn't let us down, as they've announced the release of all previously exclusive tracks for US players. Hit the jump for the full list.
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.
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.
Are you a Wii owner that's just itching to get your hands on Rock Band for your beloved console? I can't blame you, as the game is fun as hell. However, it won't be quite the same experience that is found on the 360 or PS3 due to the lack of downloadable content. When asked about this decision, Rob Kay, design director at Harmonix pointed the finger squarely at Nintendo.
It seems like Rock Band has been out forever here in the US. I almost can't remember a time when I wasn't able to rock out to all of these awesome tracks. Unfortunately Europe has not has such a luxury. Thankfully the official launch date has been confirmed, and it's not too far out, at least for the 360.
