Lego Rock Band Export No Longer Available


Just shy of the five year anniversary of Lego Rock Band, a post on the Harmonix Support Portal indicates that your chance to bring the songs from that game into the main Rock Band games has come to an end:

We’re sorry, but after 5 years of availability, the Lego Rock Band export offer has expired. You can continue to enjoy the Lego Rock Band experience on disc, and if you’d like to add to your Rock Band 3 library you can purchase DLC by visiting the in-game Music Store, or by searching the Xbox LIVE Marketplace or PlayStation Network store.

The post doesn’t have a date on it, so it’s unknown how long ago the offer has expired. It joins the Rock Band 2 20 free songs offer on the list of those that have been discontinued. If you’ve never pulled the trigger on any of the other available exports, I’d recommend doing so soon, as they may not last much longer either.

Thanks to @JedKronfeld for the tip.

Review: A City Sleeps


August 28. I’m waiting at baggage claim at the Seattle airport, where I’ve just landed to attend PAX Prime for the eighth year in a row. I pull out my phone to see what has happened in the past five hours while I’ve been off the grid, to find out that Harmonix has announced a new game!

A twin stick shooter for the PC!

Wait, what?

Less than two months later, A City Sleeps has arrived on Steam for PC, and Mac. In it, you play as Poe, a dream exorcist who must rescue the city of SanLo from their never-ending nightmare.

Just reading that short description, this doesn’t really sound much like a Harmonix game (or maybe it does, this is the company that released a dance game with a time traveling crime story after all), but within mere moments of picking up the controller, and starting on the first dream, you’ll get it.
