Rock Band DLC, Week of 1 November 2011

Breaking Benjamin return to the game with their second pack, and they’re joined by a lone single from Papa Roach. The Songs * Breaking Benjamin – “Sooner or Later” * Breaking Benjamin – “Breath” + * Breaking Benjamin – “Until the End” * Papa Roach – “Forever” + = pro-guitar/bass chart available   The Thoughts I don’t really know Breaking Benjamin, but for some reason I had in my head that they were kind of […]

Rock Band DLC, Week of 28 October 2011

Harmonix is celebrating Halloween the best way it knows how, with a full-on Zombie invasion. Having a busy week so no commentary this time around. But I will say to give the song by The Darkness a try if you don’t know it; it’s a delightful little bit of sparkling glam rock totally at odds with the band name. The video is amazing. * The Darkness – “I Believe in a Thing Called Love” + […]

PAX 2011, Day 3

Sleep was again interrupted but with the final day of PAX ahead we couldn’t let a tiny little thing like exhaustion get in the way. There were games to demo that I hadn’t yet demoed and many photos to photo that I hadn’t yet photoed. Previously on PAX’11:

The Pull List, 12 October 2011

My name is Jet Wolf, and I’m addicted to comic books. Since picking up my first issue of X-Men way back in the late 80s, comic books have been a focal point of my life. I can’t imagine a world without superheroes flying around in brightly coloured and impractical costumes, punching out bad guys and sometimes each other. May the Pull List be eternal. Here’s what was on it this week.                 […]

PAX 2011, Day 2

The night was restless, but PAX waits for no one. We’d decided that of all the big ticket games, we had one in particular that we were going to aim for first thing; the siren song of the shirt was playing loudly in our mind. We could sleep later. In new shirts! The story so far: Day 0 | Day 1 pt 1 | Day 1 pt 2 | Day 1 pt 3     […]

Rock Band DLC, Week of 11 October 2011

Ahh, it’s a cool, refreshing glass of “something I like”. The Clash single, at any rate, which is just about perfect. There’s a bit too little variation in Blink-182 songs – generally speaking – for me to not feel like I probably already have whatever they’re offering. But that’s without listening to them, so I could be surprised.   The Songs * The Clash – “Rock the Casbah” + * Blink-182 – “The Party Song” […]

How Xbox Support Completely Screwed Me.

UPDATE AND RESOLUTION, Friday 14 October 2011, 4:12 pm PT: There had still been no contact from Xbox Support/Fraud, but we had a few other avenues we were attempting to pursue. We had the ear of someone with the moderation team in the Xbox Live forums who was willing to see what, if anything, she could do if Fraud kicked the issue out again. We also had attempted to talk to XBL’s policy and enforcement […]
