RBN needs 'official' release announcements

Hello RBN,

RBN needs 'official' release announcements.
Sites like joystiq put out weekly 'new songs on Rock band' postings, and it is a shame (crime!) that they don't include RBN songs.

I assume sites like this rely on official announcements. I know RBN songs are released in a stranger way, but that can be dealt with.
Even if the 'official' announcents are 2 weeks behind (ie songs posted two weeks ago), that's okay. The important thing is that the songs, and RBN itself get some deserved publicity.

    The weekly DLC announcements thread includes RBN songs that were released in the prior week! :)

    I missed the last two weeks of these updates while on the road, but our plan is to feature all of the RBN tracks released during the week after the Friday announcement of the coming week's DLC. That way, all the press releases, news stories and links will point back to the RBN songs along with the regular DLC.

    Hey nobody can blame you for that. Besides, your GWAR interview totally makes up for it. :)

    Okay, I stand corrected, kind of.

    My main point still stands though - Forum postings and the 'Zine are great for the existing/regular rock band base. However you want the announcements going out to a broader audience that may not be playing Rock Band, to gain/restore their interest. I'm just picking Joystiq as it's one of the regular sites I browse.

    I don't know where Joystiq/others get their information for posting, but wherever it was, it hasn't been in a place that had included RBN songs.

    I'm hoping it is in the press releases, and so if Henry has taken care of that, then great!

    Maybe if HMX doesn't have the time a forum goer could compile a list of all the video game news outlet sites...IGN, Kotaku, Gamespot, Gametrailers, GiantBomb, X-play, etc and just send them an email with a link to the announcements.


    Might get the info out there faster and save the news sites the trouble of looking for the info.
