Rock Band 3

Cracker, Midnight Oil and more hit Rock Band next week

5:15 PM on 06.01.2012 // Conrad Zimmerman

Next week's downloadable content releases for Rock Band 3 have been revealed, bringing three never-before-playable bands into the mix. Tracks from Cracker, Florence + The Machine, and Midnight Oil will release on the 5th of June (June 6 in Europe). Here's the list:

  • Cracker – “Teen Angst (What the World Needs Now)” 
  • Florence + the Machine – “Dog Days Are Over” 
  • Midnight Oil – “Power and the Passion”
  • As ever, tracks are $1.99 (160 MSP or 200 Wii Points) with a Pro version upgrade available on Teen Angst for just $0.99 (80 MSP/100 Wii) more.

    I'm shamed to say that I don't really know any of these tracks and barely know Cracker apart from their 1993 single, "Low," which I remember as much for having Sandra Bernhardt in the music video as the expression, "junkie cosmonaut," which will probably never leave me. Harmonix should get that one in there.

    Heading off to Spiel in a bit. A whole lot of games there, just of the cardboard variety. I love me some board games.

    Finally finished The Witcher 3. Definitely one of the best games I've played in my 30 years or so of gaming. Now onward to Ground Zeroes/Phantom Pain.

    If anyone's playing Marvel Puzzle Quest (any platform) you should join my Alliance, RedRightHand, and help me kick some Galactus butt for their second anniversary event. (Please?)

    MGS Online Day 3. I have 3 character up to level 10 now, one in each class. They're all pretty handy, but I do miss the scout's mark speed the most on other classes.

    The SW: Battlefront is pretty and has great sound design, but the gameplay is so shallow and has seemingly no depth! If the full game is like this I will be disappointed.

    Dear Playboy: Love your video game coverage, but how about you start making some topless unboxing videos? Seeing someone unwrap a copy of Call of Duty is boring. Seeing a topless Playmate unwrap a copy of anything is awesome!

    In happier news, Level-5 is already talking Yo-Kai Watch 2's Western release, and better/worse yet, they're considering amiibo support for the series! And hey, if they can't get Jibanyan into Smash, that'd be one way to get the West's attention.

    I drank a glass of Ovaltine for the first time in years today. It was nice. Like drinking a glass of my childhood, complete with ignorance, embarrassing angst, tears (so many tears) and night terrors. Ah, the good 'ol days.

    [img][/img] This is just depressing. Digital classics on consoles are such a great idea, but it's like not a single company wants to really go through with it.

    I recently beat Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow again, but this time I played on Hard mode from scratch. Outside of dying a few times due to me being an idiot, and enemies hitting harder, it was actually easy. Like really easy.

    It seems fairy farts are a fragrance, a soap, incense, a vaping liquid and a kind of nail polish. I'm clearly in the wrong line of work and need to eat more chili.

    Just tried 'The Last Of Us' on PSNow Trial, only to be told... 'Something went wrong. Try again.' Game-appropriate error message or quickie plot-summary?

    I hate when people say crap like "I admit that [thing] in games is problematic, but I still enjoy it" because it's an underhanded way of contradicting your own views while convincing yourself that you aren't a hypocrite.

    Well shit. I knew I was more than likely going to enjoy Star Wars Battlefront (cause you know, giant Star Wars nerd and all) but holy cow, the beta is fucking great! I need the full game like, now.
