Rock Band 2: Special Edition
Game Description:With the original Rock Band title providing millions of players with a new way to interact with the music and artists they love, Rock Band 2 builds upon its core band foundation to offer an unparalleled, deeper, dynamic gameplay experience. This version of the Rock Band 2 package includes the full set-up to rock out. Rock Band 2 features newly designed guitar and drum peripherals, with spiffier detail and a more realistic playing experience. These are all fully compatible with the original Rock Band instruments. The Guitar is sturdier, with a more precise strum bar, a built-in sensor allowing quick and seamless calibration, a retooled tilt sensor for improved Overdrive employment, a more realistic neck and body design, and quieter buttons. The Drums have an improved kick pedal with metal plate, velocity-sensitive drum heads, cymbal and hi-hat expansion ports and quieter drum heads.

  • Review Of New Weezer Album Accuses Band Of Catering To Rock Band

    Weezer remains my favorite band...ever. It'd take something very special to top Blue Album and Pinkerton in my mind, especially when you add nostalgia to the mix. But I'm a little more realistic about modern day Weezer, especially the band's latest record, Raditude (don't get me started on the title). The notoriously snarky Pitchfork, however,...

  • Future Rock Bands To Be More Immersive?

    Earlier this week, I basically questioned whether music games were dead, and asked what developers could possibly do to "add value" to a genre that, at its core, is a high-tech version of Simon Says. While they didn't say anything specific, Harmonix did address the issue in a recent interview with computer and video games. When asked...
