Titled Rock Band Blitz, the game developers are making an endeavor for the iconic series to “go back to its roots” after the lackluster performance of Rock Band 3. While Rock Band Blitz employs game mechanics similar to previous titles such as Amplitude and FreQuency, whether it is a step forward or is actually an improvement would be for gamers to decide.
One of the more radical changes within Rock Band Blitz is its reversion to using the console controller in lieu of [...More

Green Day: Rock Band - First Look
Cheats: PS3 X360 WII
Not long ago it seems the gaming industry was completely over-saturated with rhythm based music games, particularly from the Rock Band and Guitar Hero franchises. Green Day: Rock Band though, marks the release of the first prominent title from the genre of 2010 - and we've kind of missed them!
There are no prizes for guessing which band take the spotlight in Green Day: Rock Band, it's Green Day! The retro punk-pop band are possibly another surprise choice by Harmonix, as were The Beatles for their previous Rock Band epic but that decision proved a successful one, and [...More
Lego Rock Band
Rhythm gaming seems to have taken over the industy in recent years, but the younger audience may have been overlooked until now. Lego Rock Band brings the guitar strumming, drum beating, lyric pelting Rock Band series to the masses - in a more family friendly overall package.
We will assume you already know what games such as Guitar Hero and more specifically Rock Band are all about, because if you haven't discovered them yet, you're no gamer! One drawback of these titles in many parents eyes has been the inclusion of tracks that could be deemed unsuitable for children or young [...More
The Beatles: Rock Band
While Guitar Hero has spawned spin-off titles for some of the world's most popular 'hard' rock bands such as Metallica, the competing Rock Band series have signed up The Beatles! Possibly a stroke of genius which could see the franchise leap ahead.
Though today's youngsters would not consider it fact, The Beatles are one of the world's most popular rock bands ever, and in many peoples opinion, the greatest. Their harmonies and softer music style compared to the likes of Metallica and Van Halen may be just the twist the rhythm games genre needs for a new leading title to emerge.

The Future of Gears of War 3: Horde Command Pack
Epic has promised at least four DLC packs to be released for their most recent blockbuster release, the extremely popular Gears of War 3. As an avid Gears of War 3 player myself, I am very excited for the first DLC offering, due to be released over Xbox Live for a mere 800 Microsoft Points (which is quite a bargain when you realize Activision was demanding a whopping 1200 MSP for their Call of Duty DLC packs).

Pulse: Volume One (iOS) [ Review ]
There have been quite a few rhythm games released in the App Store. However, there hasn't been one that looks just as good as this one.

Developed by Cipher Prime, the developers of Auditorium, Pulse features elegance in its simplicity.
Perhaps the learning curve of this game may not be to some people's liking since even the tutorials don't really tell you if you're doing it wrong. Most of the mechanics are learned through experimentation, so you'll have to spend some time in [...More

Call of Duty Black Ops First Strike Map Pack Details
Today we got the description of the first batch of Call of Duty Black Ops DLC Map Pack called First Strike.
The largest of the new maps prominently features its namesake, bisecting the map (there's a hole players can cross through) and essentially pitting East vs. West. There are plenty of tall buildings offering good spots for snipers. The most promising feature is an area called "No Man's Land." This big open space offers a shortcut, but provides no cover and is guarded by automated turrets. Pro tip: Run fast.

Yet another rhythm based music game, Ultimate Band, has arrived. With this genre in particular in danger of becoming overcrowded this could be seen as a brave move by Disney of all people, but could Ultimate Band offer the charm boasted by countless Disney animated films?
No! There is very little about Ultimate Band that can be considered as charming, cute, adorable or anything that you could ever associate with the Disney animated films. Well, perhaps with the exception of colorful, because that is certainly something you can not say Ultimate Band fails to deliver - but to be honest, we [...More
