Harmonix, developer of Rock Band and Dance Central, is lending a helping hand to the Japanese community after the March 11 earthquake and aftermath that has left the country devastated by participating in game industry efforts and, thanks to one employee, even starting one of their own.
Harmonix was at PAX East this year showing off Dance Central and the Rock Band 3 Fender Squier Stratocaster Guitar Controller. Check out photos from HMXdropslash, video from HMXPope, and an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at what it's like to go to PAX from HMXThrasher.

When I play Rock Band, the world around me fades out as soon as the venue lights up on my TV. I am whisked away from my everyday concerns and for a few precious songs I imagine being inside my favorite movie, Purple Rain, to perform at First Avenue and see the audience go wild. I get caught up in the photographic look of the venues and sometimes I pay more attention to the camera angles than the notes coming at me. At that point I totally fail out of the game and get booed by the audience.
New songs from Jefferson Airplane, Santana, and Blood, Sweat & Tears, plus DragonForce makes their Rock Band debut with two songs! Are you ready to play "Through the Fire and the Flames" on Pro Guitar?
