Rock Blog Friday 11/16/07 4 Days!

edited December 2007 in Announcements
4 days to launch. Can you feel it? I can. Pressure's on, friend. In 4 days this game will be released and a new age will be upon us. Bronze Age, Iron Age, Renaissance, Enlightenment, Modern Age, Rock Band. The world shall know rock and we shall be its herald! HUZZAH!

Huzzah indeed. Ok this will be the last time I mention it (unless something huge and spectacular happens) but elsewhere on the site we have opened a merch store that has a bunch of gear the is Rock Band and a bunch of other stuff from other places that is just rock - for instance there is a section where you can inexplicably chart a jet? Why? Because. That's why. Store is here.

Lots of craziness this week with all the announcements and the first reviews and the DLC and all that. I'd like to pass on the personal thanks of Big Daddy (our VP of Operations) who posted the big "What should DLC cost?" thread back in May and most of you responded to. It really did help us guide some of choices about DLC and he sends along his thanks. He may post himself a few days to pass it along himself but I wanted to let you know.

Spent a few days in NYC this week which was fun. We shot a show for MTV called "The Big Ten" which is, believe it or not, a program that shows videos. Music videos. Maria, Drake, DanT, and myself headed down to be the show's house band to play the game into and out of commercials. It airs on Monday at 9:00am and we play 5 songs total. It was wicked fun. DanT writes a little about it and posted a picture from it in his blog.

Anything else? Yes! On Monday we will be turning the profiles off on the site so if you want to backup your blogs you may want to go in there and copy/paste text as well as make not of the friends you will want to re-add on Day 1. I know it is a bit of a hassle but I imagine it will be well worth it!

Lastly welcome our two newest community moderators - Tbradshaw and Feigned. I think you will find both of them to be most accommodating and help with the fugazi of insanity that will descend upon our happy hamlet next week.

Blogs!

An Australian in NY. A lot like that Crocodile Dundee movie.

    Two new mods eh?! congrats guys, and welcome!

    4 days, I can't even believe it, yesterday it was 4 months away!

    I love the new shop, I want almost all of those t-shirts, I guess those could be some nice Christmas presents for me! I also need to get my hands on a mic stand ASAP.

    NYC is awesome, I'll keep a lookout for when they air big ten, I can't believe they still play music on MTV.

    3 years? Really? You've only been on the board for 6-7 months! :p

    Thanks for all the blogs you've directed us to over the past months Sean. See you on the flip side! Maybe I'll be able to play online with you at least once!

    I don't know where to put this, so I guess here is as good as any.

    Just wanting to make you guys aware of a mistake on the list of things to keep you busy until Rock Band comes out that's on the main page. Number 7 says something about reciting the lyrics of Nine Inch Nails' "Machine" to a telemarketer. There isn't a NIN song called Machine. Anyway, not nitpicking, just trying to help.

    It would be really nice if we could have rock blogs still occurs, possibly simply weekly, to keep us in the loop. I mean, the vague announcement made last week is a start, but a regular flow of information/assurance from you to us is definitely a must.

    NOOOOOO! I've been monitoring it for so long to see when we'd get an update. So sad, and I really don't want to buy GH3 until I"m sure the controller will work with the game post patch.

    It was locked. If they post another announcement, it'll be in a new thread.

    Or, if they unlock it and add to it, it will bump back to the top.

    It's a win-win-win situation.

    Or whichever one it is that has the most wins.
