For Tony Hawk, there was Skate and for Guitar Hero, there is Rock Band. It doesn’t look like a good year for Neversoft. Seems like they keep picking the short straws. Rock Band is one of those games that will dominate all in its genre. It just makes sense. We’ve played guitar games, we’ve played drum games in the arcades and we’ve played many horrible karaoke games. Developers must be kicking themselves in the ass for not thinking of this one.

Rock Band was obviously one of the bigger games of the EA Showcase. It was set up on the stage where the press briefing was held and they had you face the crowd, which is probably the set up they are going to be using in their tour. It was awesome to see people say they’ve played drums before, to go up on stage and fail horribly. After a few beers and a Jack&Coke, i got the courage to get up on stage. The instruments all worked just ask you expect, but getting used to the drums is a little difficult. I’m used to having my arms crossed, rather than open. Also, getting used to the marks that scroll down, takes a while. But once you get the hang of it, it’s a blast!

Rock Band is a fail-safe game. There isn’t much to say about the game because you know it’s going to be good awesome. I thought it was a great game before I played it and I’m even more excited that I got a chance to try it out. All I hope for now is cheaper downloadable tracks, but who actually believes that’s going to happen?
