The Official Harmonix Podcast Episode 43 - Playcast Podtest

Hey all! This week we thought it would be a fun treat to loop you into the ins and outs of our playtesting process. So we decided to bring in our two Playtest Coordinators, Jyllian and Matty, to chat it up. These two basically study the Science of Fun. Enjoy the conversation, as it’s a fun one, and you might even learn a thing or two.

paano b 2... hnd ko alm... turuan nyo ako... plzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Great discussion! We know why Prince isn't in the game, and you give a reason for the Boston song, but please tell me there isn't anything stopping the ELO thing from happening! Mr. Blue Sky has been on my wishlist for ages, and frankly I'd buy every song off of any of their greatest hits albums... Evil Woman and Rockaria! would also make for amazing keys and harmonies.

Hey.. Emerson Lake and Palmer are awesome. I wish we had "just a pebble" or "Knife's Edge" in rock band, so don't you talk bad about them ;) .

Absolutely love that video. But now I want to see the speech that Sean did that scared everyone! Here's my band and 3 pack just for giggles. Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Down Boy - Heads will Roll - Phenomena
