Rock Band DLC, Week of 4 October 2011

Another week that’s sour for my tastes as we get a four-pack from alt rappers/nu metal/blah blah genre group Limp Bizkit.   The Songs * Limp Bizkit – “Gold Cobra” * Limp Bizkit – “Nookie” + * Limp Bizkit – “My Way” * Limp Bizkit – “Re-Arranged” + = pro-guitar/bass chart available   The Thoughts “Golden Cobra”, now with 500% of your daily air humping. And yeah, okay. So I listened to all these songs […]

Rock Band DLC, Week of 27 September 2011

The DLC for next week isn’t so much for me, being a four pack from metal group Slipknot. Should be a nice seller for Harmonix though and as I’m still several weeks behind on picking stuff up, I appreciate the break.     The Songs * Slipknot – “Wait and Bleed” + * Slipknot – “Left Behind” * Slipknot – “Pulse of the Maggots” * Slipknot – “Snuff” + + = pro-guitar/bass chart available   […]

Rock Band DLC, Week of 20 September 2011

DLC this week is all Nirvana to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Nevermind, which by the way doesn’t make me feel old at all. All of Nevermind is already in the game of course – at least in some form or another – so the new tracks are from In Utero and a single from their eponymous collection. Also included are ten pro-guitar upgrades for songs already in the game, all Nirvana so basically all […]

Rock Band DLC, Week of 13 September 2011

While I’m fairly certain that this wasn’t the impetus, today’s my birthday and it’s like Harmonix gift wrapped the single this week just for me. The Weezer pack’s okay too I guess, but man, Janis Joplin? Oh yes please and thank you.     The Songs * Janis Joplin and the Full Tilt Boogie Band – “Me and Bobby McGee” * Weezer – “Hash Pipe” + * Weezer – “Island in the Sun” * Weezer […]

Rock Band DLC, Week of 6 September 2011

Still technically on vacation so another quick info post for this week’s DLC announcement. Though I will say that I love (almost) every song. Coming next Tuesday is a three pack from Cheap Trick and the appearance of the rumoured single from EMF.     The Songs * Cheap Trick – “I Want You to Want Me (Live)” * Cheap Trick – “Surrender (Live)” + * Cheap Trick – “Dream Police” * EMF – “Unbelievable […]

Rock Band DLC, Week of 30 August

I was thinking (hoping?) I’d get the chance to go into the next batch of DLC with the usual level of detail, but in the final pre-PAX flurry it’s become clear that it’s simply not going to happen. Just a boring – yet informative! – list this time then. And this week, tying in with their new album releasing on the same day, is an eight-pack from Red Hot Chili Peppers. * Red Hot Chili […]

Rock Band DLC, Week of 23 August 2011

Smack in the middle of a busy con season and with Dance Central 2’s launch just around the corner, we have a small week of DLC ahead. A three-pack from alt-rockers Incubus is all up in here, but that’s it. So if you don’t like Incubus, get thee to the back catalogue.   The Songs * Incubus – “Adolescents” * Incubus – “Pardon Me” + * Incubus – “Wish You Were Here” + = pro-guitar/bass […]

Rock Band DLC, Week of 16 August 2011

I am so not the target audience for this week’s DLC, but given that I’m still soaring high on the waves of last week’s Def Leppard pack, I am so fine with that. It’s a pretty short week by comparison, with a three-pack by pop-punk-emo staples Fall Out Boy, randomly accompanied by a lone single from Deep Purple.   The Songs * Fall Out Boy – “Dance, Dance” * Fall Out Boy – “Sugar, We’re […]

How to Make Kings, Step One

When we last left off, I was setting up a too-long introduction to our adventures that typically never got to the adventure itself. Time to fix that. If it wasn’t apparent from before, I’ve never actually played any kind of tabletop RPG with more than one person across from me. It’s an experience I’m looking forward to having, but I’m not there yet. Particularly with this being my first time playing in twenty-something years, I […]

Failed My Will Save

Me and fantasy go way back. In the mid-80s, Mindy (my best friend at the time) and I discovered the genre and a lifelong love was formed. Together we read Elfquest and Dragonlance and MythAdventures and a series by David Eddings whose title eludes me but I can still picture the covers. We played Bard’s Tale and King’s Quest on our brand new Tandy computers. If it was fantasy, we were interested. It seemed inevitable […]
