Now that it’s semi official…

Pissing Contest: World Tour Outsells Rock Band 2

Even though these two music games practically have the same set lists. The well established Guitar Hero managed to edge out EA’s Rock Band. Now that that’s settled, what about bringing Stan Bush as a DLC?

I don’t care which developer does it first or even both. It doesn’t bother me because I have both and have yet to finish Guitar Hero since it feels like playing all the same songs again in Rock Band 2 which includes a number of forgettable songs as well.

Please also release a utility that will read my PS2 discs so I can import them into the current version of the game and play those songs as well. Now wouldn’t that be cool!

Guide for all your plastic instruments

Guitar Hero: The Official Guitar Hero/Rock Band Compatibility Chart (Update)

For anyone who has played either Guitar Hero or Rock Band, you know the mess that it creates. With each version that comes out, I fear that my room will be filled with plastic instruments.

Each console has it’s own version and each music game has its own set of instruments. This is getting really messy now.

Fortunately for us, the Guitar Hero community has posted a guide for all the plastic instruments we own so we don’t keep adding more junk into the house.

Thanks guys! You’re the best!

October was quite a month

The month of October drained my wallet quite a bit. Even with the economic downturn and the weak exchange rate, I always believed in pumping in money into the economy to keep to running even if it’s just a little bit.

Games I got this month

  • Yakuza 2
  • Infinite Undiscovery
  • Fable II
  • Fallout 3
  • Rock Band 2
  • Guitar Hero: World Tour
  • Little Big Planet

While in New York I decided to get one myself,

Visit Our Muppet Whatnot Workshop Boutique at FAO Schwarz

It was supposed to open to November 13 and I was there for the soft opening on the 28th. It was either this or the Ugly Dolls. My brother and sister made the obvious choice, get a muppet. I ordered the Ugly Dolls online.

 I’ll blog later this month as I scan the design book and my experience in general. I must say it was one of the best purchases I made this month. Mine is the one in bag on the left. She doesn’t have a name yet and I would welcome any suggestions.

And to top my October vacation experience, I got myself the new Mac Book Pro. Yes it is heavier by .1 lbs. but it is just sooo pretty. More pics and another blog post to follow as I get back to blogging.

It’s really hard to blog while on vacation.

These songs will live on forever

Original Rock Band Songs Won’t Be Offered As DLC

As I wait for my copy of Rock Band 2, MTV has announced that Rock Band 1 will never be taken off circulation and you will have to buy the entire disc instead of buying it song by song via DLC.

At least this is one game that won’t degrade in resale value over the years. Sweet!
