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.
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.
It’s been almost a week since you’ve had any new tracks for Rock Band, so I’m sure you’re just itching for more. This week’s DLC features three winning bands from MTV2’s “Circuit Breakout” contest, in addition to an extra track from Maximo Park. Hit the jump for the full list.
With all of the DLC that is released for Rock Band every week, people are really starting to wonder where all the tracks for Guitar Hero III are. Well don’t worry, while they aren’t nearly as numerous as the competition, Activision does have five track packs which will be up for download this month.
It looks like Guitar Hero III is finally going to get some new tracks (No, I’m not just talking about the GoW track) from an unlikely band. I’ll admit that I dig Coldplay’s music, however, they aren’t a band I’d expect to find in my Guitar Hero set list.
Xbox 360 rockers snagged their own free track for Guitar Hero III some time ago. Well, it’s finally time for PS3 gamers to have their day, and their own free track. We recently told you that there would be a free God of War track up for download in the near future, and today is that day. Hit the jump for a sneak peak video featuring the song.
Tomorrow is Tuesday, and you’re in luck. You aren’t just going to have one track pack available to download, but Harmonix is feeling particularly saucy and tossing up tracks from both Jimmy Buffett and Disturbed for your rocking pleasure. Hit the jump for the track listing.
