Today marks the announcement of the final Rock Band DLC release set for April 2nd on the PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii. It’s been no surprise for over a week now that the final song is “American Pie” from Don McLean, which seems like a wonderful finale song for a game I’ve held near and dear to my heart for so long. The pricing is nothing new, so I’m not […]

After a bumpy period, it seems that Dance Central and Rock Band developer Harmonix have got themselves back on their feet again after they successfully secured funding from venture capitalist company The Foundry Group. Previously, the group has backed the likes of Zynga and other big firms and needless to say, the firm was extremely impressed with what they saw from Harmonix, with Group Managing Director Brad Feld saying that the three […]

We’re coming up to the end of things here and while I am depressed beyond belief that Rock Band will be ending DLC in a little over a week, I can finally rest well knowing that my five years of requesting Chevelle have finally paid off. Shame it wasn’t a week earlier to celebrate my birthday. I WILL make it known, however, that Harmonix calling it “Chevelle Pack 01” when […]

The process of releasing each song previously packaged with Rock Band Blitz as standalone DLC has been tedious in my opinion, but the process will cease when the final bunch is released on the 19th of March, which includes Shout by Tears For Fears, Diamond Eyes by Deft—I mean, Shinedown, and the “I just shot Marvin in the face” song. Check out the full details, as well as RBN details, […]

I may be in the middle of a move right now, but with only three original Rock Band DLC releases until the end of the world end of scheduled weekly DLC, I’m sure as hell not missing out on posting these so I ran on up to Walmart to jump on one of their display PCs to get filthy looks and post about Rock Band. You’re welcome. Maybe I should’ve […]

Man, the clock is ticking down and there aren’t many more of our Friday morning gatherings left, huh? So with only a month of DLC left, we’re stuck with another week of Rock Band Blitz singles. Honestly, if they had to end things, I really wish the last month wasn’t half-filled with Blitz releases… Anyways, this week sees tracks from Blink-182 and All-American Rejects, plus Red Hot Chili Peppers re-completes the Blood Sugar […]

It’s Friday so once again a new episode of the VaultCast is up, folks! Episode 3: Rip on PS4 & RIP Rock Band focuses on the big news of the day (that we recorded), the PS4 announcement! Listen to us wax poetic about the droning 19 hour Sony presentation and smack lips like Jonathan Blow. We close things off with a farewell to Rock Band who is ending their DLC on […]

Some of us are still reeling over the news this week that Rock Band is ending it’s weekly DLC releases. Part of me still wishes it were some horrible joke, but I know that’s not the cast. Hopefully the game at least goes out in style, right? You know, the weeks that we aren’t stuck with Rock Band Blitz re-hashes… Get all the info on this week’s releases, including a […]

This is one easily of the saddest days in my gaming life. The series I have played and loved for five years is ending it’s weekly DLC on April 2nd.  The reason I was even hired on this site was to cover Rock Band news and it quickly grew to much more, but to me, this absolutely sucks. I can’t even think of a joke to make in this situation. […]
