  • TWIRB – This Week in Rock Band

    Posted on August 27th, 2008 Shawn No comments

    First up, no Rush DLC due to technical difficulties.  Something else promoised to take its place before the week is out.

    From hmxseam (Harmonix Developer):

    Rush Delay Info

    Hey everybody,Unfortunately, due to unforeseen technical difficulties, we won’t be able to release Rush’s “Moving Pictures” this week. We’ll be working on it as hard as we can, but it looks like it could be a couple of weeks to fix. In the meantime we will be moving around our schedule so we still have DLC coming out each week (including this week, info to follow in another announcement).

    Look forward to some exciting news this weekend, from PAX and elsewhere.

    Engadget gets the ION Drum Rocker.  We are jealous.

    Hands (and feet) on with ION’s Drum Rocker Rock Band Premium Drum Set

    Rock Band 2 might not be out yet, but ION was kind enough to send us the new Drum Rocker Premium Drum Set a couple weeks early. Built like a tank, this thing makes the original Rock Band drum set look like the toy it is — we’re talking aluminum tube construction that apes traditional electronic rack kits, soft trigger surfaces that register velocity, and quarter-inch connections that’ll make modding a dream. Of course, all that heft means that set-up took over an hour and it eats up just about twice as much living room space as the original with no easy way to take it down, but if you’re a hardcore fake rocker and you don’t have the DIY chops to roll your own, this is $300 you’re gonna want to spend. A couple more quick impressions after the break, and tons of pictures in the gallery.

    Update: Joystiq also got a chance to check this bad boy out, they didn’t like it quite as much as we did. Take a peek here.

    I’m still stuck on (Don’t Fear) the Reaper drums expert.  Wo is me.
