Journey's "Don't Stop Believing" is in Rock Band? How do I know? I know that Harmonix people took the stage here at a after hours party at GDC and started rocking the 1980's hit song live. So it's in there somewhere. Take that as you will.

The Harmonix folks built it up pretty big here at this party. The bar went nuts when the news came out. And who wouldn't go nuts? Isn't it the quintessential power ballad?

Unfortunately that's all we know. There's no price or release date at all. Our own Nick Chester notes that Randy Jackson and American Idol were mentioned in the loading trivia screen. Our own Dale North notes that this song is cheesy and played out. 

[Update: We've added video of the event after the jump. Feel free to sing along. Also, Dale North is wrong. - Nick]

Just a small town girl, livin in a lonely world
She took the midnight train goin anywhere
Just a city boy, born and raised in south detroit
He took the midnight train goin anywhere

A singer in a smokey room
A smell of wine and cheap perfume
For a smile they can share the night
It goes on and on and on and on

Strangers waiting, up and down the boulevard
Their shadows searching in the night
Streetlight people, living just to find emotion
Hiding, somewhere in the night

Working hard to get my fill,
Everybody wants a thrill
Payin anything to roll the dice,
Just one more time
Some will win, some will lose
Some were born to sing the blues
Oh, the movie never ends
It goes on and on and on and on

(chorus)

Dont stop believin
Hold on to the feelin
Streetlight people

I met League of Geeks' Trent Kusters at GDC a few weeks back. We just missed each other at Bitsummit just a week before, but I'm glad we were able to finally meet up as I would have missed seeing a really cool game.  Kus...more

To Leave is one of the neatest games I played during GDC

GDC is full of neat games. There are sentai management sims. Body building cats. Hyper Light Drifter. But one of the neatest games I played during GDC is To Leave, which creative director Estefano Palacios says is the first i...more

Have you played Rhythm Doctor?

How have I missed Rhythm Doctor? We gave it a brief mention last year, but I guess I missed that. The first I heard of it was last week at GDC. Walking past the IGF booth, I saw a guy with headphones on, bobbing his head while mashing a huge button. Curious, I walked over. I saw an on-screen cardiograph and a little samurai bobbing its little head. I was hooked from there. more
