Afternoon guys. We all knew the guys over at Harmonix had always had the Rock Band franchise close to heart, and always wanted to bring it back. And with the recent DLC releases in RB3, along with the social media teases and the recent poll included, everything hinted towards it being a question of when, rather than if.
Well, we may already have our answer to when fairly soon. Read the rest of this entry »
This week brings us two new songs from long time Rock Band artists Weezer and Tenacious D! Included below is the review, as well as playthrough videos of the DLC from the super awesome RBTeamAftermath (Rize of the Fenix) and EliteRhythmGaming2 (Back to the Shack). Definitely check out and subscribe to their YouTube channels!
All tracks are $1.99.
Microsoft kicked off their Ultimate Game Sale this week on Xbox Live, and with it, Harmonix’s Disney Fantasia: Music Evolved can now be had for a significant discount. All Xbox Live members currently save 40% on the Digital Bundle, while Xbox Live Gold members get additional savings with a 50% discount.
This deal is only scheduled to last for seven days, if you’ve been waiting to pick up Fantasia, don’t wait any longer.
As a follow up to the three surprise tracks from last month, Harmonix announced today that two more singles are coming to the Rock Band Music Store on both Xbox 360, and Playstation 3 starting tomorrow, February 17:
- Tenacious D – “Rize Of The Fenix”
- Weezer – “Back To The Shack”
In yet another contender for weirdest Harmonix/Rock Band cross over of 2015, #IDARB, a chaotic 2D sports game, is set to launch as a downloadable title for the Xbox One on February 1 as part of the Games with Gold promotion, and will feature a familiar team for Rock Band fans:
The Harmonix team in #IDARB, pictured above, features eight Rock Band instruments that you can play as. No, that’s not a typo. You can literally jump around the playing field scoring goals as a Rock Band microphone. This team is included automatically in the base game, so there’s nothing needed to download, though you can easily find more than enough characters to add to the game if you want more.
You can learn more about #IDARB at their official site, and if you’re an Xbox Live Gold member with an Xbox One, be sure to pick it up on February 1 at no additional cost through Games with Gold.
