HODE UP. ROCK BAND 3? OMG HUEY LEWIS AND THE NEWS

As reported everywhere in the planet, even KOTAKU, Rock Band 3 will be released. This time..IN SPACE. I’m kidding. Fuck that band. Even from a self proclaimed  90’s British Rock fan I’m saying fuck that band.

See for yourself.

Sorry to steal that 30 seconds of your life. Sorry, no refunds. I cannot give it back.

Hennyways Kotaku writes (because I’m quite frankly too lazy and you come because you don’t want to filter through all that ANIME RP BULLSHIT right?!).  “The keyboard is a “25-key, fully functioning MIDI” version of the real thing, and is one of two key improvements made to the game, the other being the introduction of a new “Rock Band Pro” mode for expert players, which replaces coloured tabs with real musical symbols in an effort to get players on the track to playing real instruments.”

Whatever, keyboards. That’s so early 90’s. Two things I gleaned from this article.

HUEY LEWIS AND THE MOTHER FUCKING NEWS

and..seemingly continued lack of Kinks is freaking odd. Steve Miller band over the kinks? Seriously? I bet by the time they do add kinks it will be something like Come Dancing, I just know it. Ugh. Whatever lets talk about fun things because we loves funs things?!

Holy Split! Beatles Abbey Road Released and I didn’t even know!

So, one of the >3< announced Beatles albums has been released. And by far and away my least liked album so you see me in the corner not giving a damn ok? That’s enough of the hate against this game , It was released on October 20th and the entire album is available to the fresh tune of 16.98 (what is this 1998 cd prices?).  At least the next two albums are going to be pretty nice, we get “Sgt Peppers” and “Rubber Soul”. No release date has been announced on those games but I’ll bet money it occurs before December 25
Rich and I talked about this on our podcast but it appears the other Beatles albums are t at best to become available for DLC.  Here’s something I stole from wikipedia. “While there is potential for the entire Beatles catalogue to be made available, such a scenario would be “stretching it a bit”, according to John Drake of Harmonix.[34] Drake identified the costly development process as a potentially prohibitive factor: “Every time we do one song, it’s not like Rock Band where we wait for the masters to come in and just author them… its like, send people to Abbey Road, use the original tape, separate them out… it costs thousands of dollars.”[68] Drake asserted that Harmonix would take sales of the currently announced albums into consideration before continuing development of downloadable content.”

Are you kidding me? I thought the albums were digitally remastered when Star Wars was raped and torn apart to the ugly beast it is now? Oh well.
