Crisis on Infinite Wolves

I’ve been absent from my blog. From much of online, in truth. There have been Things. But there will always be Things. So it goes. Here’s some stuff I’ve been saving up to talk at you about. ~~~~~~~~~~ I’ve been watching TV lately. By that, I mean watching programs within a week of when they air. As someone whose natural proclivity is to TiVo an entire season and a half before I bother watching (if […]

Next week is all Ozzy Ozzy Ozzy, in a pack timed for the release of his two classic albums, Blizzard of Ozz and Diary of a Madman. But it’s a little different than usual.

Rock Band DLC, Week of 23 May 2011

Rock Band DLC, Week of 19 May 2011

Also note that the release date for this DLC is Thursday this week rather than the usual Tuesday due to an HMX server migration. * Pantera – “5 Minutes Alone” + […]

Rock Band DLC, Week of 10 May 2011

I’ve been largely offline for the past few weeks, but Rock Band DLC is ever my blogging carrot. We know a lot about upcoming DLC in May; coming our way will be new tracks from Lady Gaga, Ozzy Osbourne, Pantera and the full 13-minute version of “Do You Feel Like We Do” from Frampton Comes Alive. Which sounds like it’ll be awesome to play in the game so it’s a real shame that I loathe […]
