If you're a PS4 owning Rock Band 4 player in Europe, there's a good change you've noticed that a chunk of your old library of PS3 Rock Band tracks don't seem to be playable on Rock Band 4 yet. You're probably not alone in this, as Harmoix h...

Rock Band 3 tracks should be playable in Rock Band 4 by end of year

People who played Rock Band 3 can expect their Rock Band 4 library to grow significantly in the coming months. Since Rock Band 4's October 6 launch, Harmonix has been at work trying to bring old content onto the new platforms. The...

The Seahawks lost yesterday because Macklemore played Guitar Hero at halftime

A lot of dumb things happened in football this weekend. Michigan decided it would like Michigan State to continue its recent domination of the intrastate rivalry, so the Wolverines did this -- a not very good football play. The Indianapolis...

You will know (and love) most of Guitar Hero Live's newest songs

You know what they say about saving the best for last. Well, I guess they just say to do it. It's a good idea. Then everyone's like "Wow, we doubted you, but some real nice stuff happened at the end." That's Guitar Hero Live's legacy for th...

Here's how to turn off Rock Band 4's Freestyle guitar solos

Rock Band 4, largely the Rock Band that you already know and maybe love, has one big change from previous games. That is the Freestyle guitar solo. Its intent is to break away from the traditional and sometimes very tough scripted solo...

Re-downloading your Rock Band DLC is a giant pain in the ass on Xbox One

In preparation for Rock Band 4's release next week, I figured it's about time to start downloading the songs I bought on Xbox 360 for use on my Xbox One. There's no doubt in my mind that if I have friends over to play and all the tracks the...

Rock Band 4 releases next week, last chance to stock up on cheap DLC

It may seem counter-intuitive, but this is a rare example of a time when you might want to purchase downloadable content before a game comes out. I know, I know -- we usually rally against that hard, but bear with us just this once. For thr...

Tough decisions lie ahead in Rock Band 4's career

The Rock Band 4 disc will cost $20 extra on Xbox One
