Out here at GDC this week making a fool of myself so I don't have much time to bore you with a bunch of stupid talking on my part. What I do have time for is to give you this one blog that has a special treat hidden in it. Enjoy!

GDC/Valve Party/Special Treat!

Be back soon. But not before I go here again - Musee Mecanique

    1st off... awesome! 2nd, sounds like some direct competition/ reaction to the halo theme in guitar hero, although, this far out trumps that silly little song.

    I'm very happy that you guys got Still Alive in the game. I've never heard it personally, but I know members of HMX have really been into that song and Jonathan Coulton in general. That must be an awesome experience to find a new song you and your co-workers love and then get it into the game quickly so that you can experience the song on a deeper level with Rock Band.

    Awesome blog.

    I love:
    When they got to the song list they scrolled through an almost infinite amount of DLC until eventually they stopped on one-

    "Still Alive" by GLaDOS
    I'd love to see this infinite amount of DLC.

    Also cool song, I hope it comes out soon!

    Hahaha, very nice info. Can't wait to find out when it'll be released to the public.

    On a side note, I am sad that I ended up triple posting in the blog. Sorry about that.

    Also of note - I met BounchFX at our booth at GDC. At first I didn't recognize him because his old avatar was a pic of himself with more facial hair. He was all "Hey Sean!" and I was all "Hurrm?" But it all worked out.

    Good story, Sean.

    Good story.

    I'm surprised you don't get that whole "Hey I know you!" thing more often.

    D-list celebrity? maybe F-list?

    and the moral of the story is
    1) carry a memory card around in you pocket.
    2)if this happened just snatch and grab the game system.

    j/k
    can't wait to play this one :D

    I kind of do sometimes. I'm still more famous than, like, the lesser cast of "Charles In Charge." Sort of a sub-medium ultra-low fame. Next stop Celebrity Rehab!

    More often people are like "Hey you work at Harmonix! RAD! Are you on the forums? Do you know Apples? What is he like in person?"

    Am I the only one who hates this song?

    Can it even be called a song?

    I can understand why fans of Portal might be pumped for this but outside of them I don't think this is really all of that big of news. Its like great, you spent time to get a no-name artist in rock band, thanks.

    It was "almost infinite." So like, one away.

    And holy crap I can't wait to get Still Alive. Here's hoping it's $1 so everyone and their mother will buy it.

    Sadly, I have not heard this song... I tried downloading it, but nothing found... I downloaded a song called Still alive from the Portal soundtrack, and it's soft, but I still like it. Is it that one?
  • MuppetheroMuppethero Unsigned
    edited February 2008
    Yes thats the one from portal. Its a very soft song. It really makes little sence to anyone who has not finished portal.

    BUt OMG i love that game and I love that song and I love rockband I had to put my customer on hold and scream to my co-workers when I read the news. I am so happy....I am cancling my plans to step in front of a bus until after this DLC 8 )
