Rock Band 2

August 12, 2009

Last year, Guitar Hero: World Tour and Rock Band 2 were released. After much deliberation and review-reading, I decided that the best plan of action for myself would be to get the Guitar Hero instruments (Being made by Logitech, they are of better quality and completely compatible with games from both series, like Guitar Hero: Metallica) and the Rock Band 2 game, which features many songs from both games as well as some personal favourites such as Jethro Tull’s Aqualung and Kansas’ Carry On Wayward Son.

However, I put off purchasing anything late last year as Rock Band 2’s release was going to be pushed back.

That was okay.

It is now August and Rock Band 2 has still not been released here in Australia. The game will not be released here until the end of September.

Harmonix, WTF?!

I can understand Harmonix not wanting their products to compete, as Rock Band 1 was released here around the same time as World Tour was, but that was the company’s fault and if they were to release either game, it should have been the improved sequel, or release both games with the instruments being separate, or only with the sequel.

All that Harmonix has managed to do is ensure that they cannot properly compete with Guitar Hero in Europe and Australia. Good job guys.

What makes this even more grating is that the vast majority of Rock Band’s downloadable tracks are actually available for the Wii now. And there are some I really want, like Space Truckin’ and Pain Redefined.

Little King’s Story Review

May 4, 2009

**Check out Unspeakable Evil for a review of X-Men Origins: Wolverine which Esoteric, Forte Dante and myself wrote.**

I started playing Little King’s Story on Wii today, and with quite a few hours under my belt I decided to do a write-up on this game which had completely gone under my radar until only several days ago.

Summation: Great game. Recommended.
