On Sunday, May 31, HMXSean, HMXSteph, HMXKat, and I headed out to the annual MTV Movie Awards at Universal Studios in Los Angeles.
After weeks of practicing The Beatles: Rock Band harmonies, and booking travel for Community Team, I was more than relieved when the time finally came to board the plane at Logan Airport for LA and E3 2009.
E3 is a great place to get a sneak peek at the biggest upcoming games, meet with developers and make industry contacts. And if you’re a developer, there are few places in the world where you’re under more scrutiny, as gaming press, bloggers and rabid fans examine you under a white hot microscope of judgment.
Hope’s P!nk Sweater, winners of the fast paced 24 hour Pepsi Rock Band Video Contest, bring you their star struck E3 recap, covering the airport, the HMX wrap party and everything in between.
Check out HMXJohnD and the Community team demo their hearts out in our Abbey Road booth at E3!
My trip to Sardo’s had anything but an ordinary beginning. It seems that for the Microsoft Press Demo that had happened early Monday morning, our intrepid Harmonix team had to borrow cymbals from them in order to complete our signature “look.”
We’ve kept you waiting so long for an Iron Maiden package that even a six-pack wouldn’t be enough. So prepare yourself for the Iron Maiden 12-pack, gathering metal landmarks from 1982’s “The Number of the Beast” to a quartet of scorching, brand-new live tracks.
A band can be a fragile thing. Sometimes the chemistry is perfect – you all love nothing more than sitting around in the space chugging Clamweiser and writing Deep Purple rip-offs about how great you look in Capri pants. But sometimes the chemistry isn't so hot.
Check out the winning video from the E3 sweepstakes "Limelight (original)" as performed by Hope's P!nk Sweater from Denton, Texas.
Next weekend, we expect than many of you will be trucking off to Manchester, TN for Bonnaroo, the annual live-music splurge and weekend in the sun. Here's a six-pack of DLC from artists appearing at the show.
