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...   read

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...   read

Guitar Hero Live left me afraid to ever try playing live music

Back in my mid-teens I played drums in a hastily thrown together rock band. We mainly played pretty bad covers of other people's songs, occasionally writing our own tracks that went on far too long and were excessively simplistic. Still, we...   read

Tough decisions lie ahead in Rock Band 4's career

Harmonix will need your help (again) to make its next game

Harmonix is going back to the crowdfunding well after its successful Amplitude campaign, but it's not going the Kickstarter route. It's going with something far more trendy right now. The music game developer plans to launch a cam...   read

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

Rock Band 4's latest big addition is Van Halen

Guitar Hero Live's new batch of songs is... actually pretty good

Maybe you'll actually recognize a few of this week's Guitar Hero Live songs

After the initial reveal of Guitar Hero Live, Activision's been slowly unveiling ten songs a week to keep us interested. The only problem is that the vast majority of songs (and artists) are completely unknown to the majority of people. Tha...   read
