  • Offspring, REM Come To 'Rock Band'

    The variety and scope of Rock Band's downloadable content continues to impress me. Next week's odd trio of hit-makers: The Offspring, R.E.M and Richard Thompson(!?) Sure, R.E.M and Offspring make sense, but who would have ever thought of including a track from mannered, critically lauded folk (kind of) guitarist Richard Thompson? Nice work,...

  • MTV Losing Money on 'Rock Band' Hardware

    It appears that Viacom, MTV, and Harmonix are losing money on every Rock Band bundle sold based on the cost of the game's peripherals. Ouch. Thankfully, the game itself turns a profit for the company. Remember back before Rock Band launched and Harmonix would continually say that they were selling a platform, not just a game? Turns out they...

    We all know the downside of having a sweet Rock Band set up is finding an easily-accessable place to store all the instruments. I have a corner in my living room where I keep the drum kit and two guitars, but every time I want to rock out i have to move the coffee table, carry the drums over, and put them together. Well if you've got a spare 200...
