Happy 2012! Hopefully the impending apocalypse hasn't hampered your holidays! We're doing our best to convince our new alien/demon/zombie overlords that Rock Band conforms to their new world order. So with any luck we'll still be able to get our Rock Band on after the world ends later this year.
Enough of that! We've still get a good twelve months before the sentient Toast Crunch monsters rise up, so let's get on with this month's spotlight thread!
Like last month we're going to be focusing on three different aspects of Rock Band Network.
The past, the present, and the future.
We'll pull some recomendations from the past for awesome songs you should take a look at if you haven't done so in the past. We'll highlight all the songs we released in the previous month for the present to shine the light on some songs you might have missed in all the releases. Finally we'll reveal songs that we BELIEVE should be hitting play testing during the current month of the thread. (As everyone knows things happen that can delay songs hitting play testing, but that's the plan).
So look for the RBN Past, RBN Present, and RBN Future headings to know what part we're focusing on. We're (TAG), are going to do Past in the morning, Present in the early afternoon, and focus on Future in the late afternoon/rest of the evening.
However some authors only have limited time so they might do it all at once, or at intermittent times of the day.
Or they might follow their own thing and do something completely unique. The only 'rules' here are that we're having a community day for Rock Band Network and interacting with the RB community as a whole.
So with that here's our first RBN Past choice :
I Am King Tony - Stereo Stereo :
Not only was this our first track EVER released, it's still one of my favorites. Just a really catchy pop punk song that has a real habit of getting stuck in your head.
Don't let the fact that this is a RBN1.0 song deter you from picking up this kick ass track.
You can buy it here if you like what you see/hear!
Second up on our trip down memory lane is Rishloo - Downhill.
Probably my favorite of all the Rishloo tracks from the album. Just an overall fantastic song.
If you like what you see/hear you can pick it up here!
We'll have two more past choices later this morning so stay tuned!
