Rock Band

Rock Band 1 tracks are now available on PS4

I've been a big fan of Harmonix's take on the rhythm gaming genre, ever since the first Rock Band was announced. Perhaps one of my favorite features was the idea that the music you purchased would be compatible with future titles. It's taking some time for the company to make good on that for their latest release, but we're finally seeing some progress.

You might think that Rock Band hasn't changed a lot since it originally debuted back in 2007. However, since its inception, Harmonix has put a lot of effort into making the game more realistic, with things like “pro” modes for the guitar and drums. Well this week, they're bringing a new update to the game that adds a completely new level of difficulty.

Rock Band 4 will finally let you disable the kick pedal

When Rock Band first debuted back in 2007, suddenly everyone and their brother was a drummer. This was the first time that many people had access to a simple drum kit, and could play along with a game. While that was great for a lot of people, there's a bit of a learning curve to get your feet to play nice with your hands. After 8 years, Harmonix is finally making that pesky bass pedal optional.

Harmonix hiring for next-gen, real-time combat game

Well here's something we definitely weren't expecting to see today: Harmonix, the genius studio behind Rock Band and Guitar Hero, is apparently developing a real-time combat game for next generation consoles. A job ad on Gamasutra reveals as much, with Harmonix looking for a "Combat Designer to create real-time, single-player combat experiences for a brand new IP on next generation hardware." In other words, it would appear that Harmonix is ready to branch out from the rhythm genre.

Rock Band for iOS to be pulled from App Store on July 31

EA confirmed yesterday that it would be pulling its two Rock Band games from the iTunes App Store by July 31, 2012. Although gamers will still be able to play them locally, both Rock Band and Rock Band Reloaded will not be available to download after the 31st. There was actually a bit of hint about it back in May when gamers opened the game and were shown a message stating that the game would expire by the end of the month. EA said it was an error, but it may have suggested something about the games' eventual removal from the App Store.
