DTOID Extra: Rock Band Blitz Interview


8:00 PM on 04.04.2012



On the heels of this morning's Borderlands 2 co-op video, I was able to get my hands on some footage of Harmonix's recently announced Rock Band Blitz. By which I mean, I broke into Nick Chester's hotel room at GDC and made the game's Project Director film an interview with me. He looks surprisingly composed for being forcibly coerced into submission!

Watch the video to learn about the game's foray into the world of digital distribution, it's likening to old titles like Amplitude and Frequency, and whether or not you'll be able to rock out to Kenny G's "Forever in Love." Because don't act like you've never thought about that. Don't even pretend.
