Harmonix is finally delivering a rhythm game for sedentary nerds like myself, tired of dancing and peripherals, built for controller and couch. Rock Band Blitz, the PSN and XBLA musical arcade game, now has a release date -- August 17 and 18, for $14.99 and 1200 MSP respectively. This intense and surprisingly complex title may be well worth the price just due to its music library alone, though if you discount Harmonix's dedication to quality experiences, you'll be missing out.
The current track list for Rock Band Blitz is up to 19, with the announcement of four new songs to be included in the game: "Jungle Boogie" by Kool and the Gang, "We are Young" by Fun, "Sing" by My Chemical Romance, and "So Far Away" by Avenged Sevenfold. I'd recommend just playing "Jungle Boogie" four times and you'll come out ahead. Other bands/artists in the game include Iron Maiden, P!nk, Fall Out Boy, Elton Jon, Blink 182, and Quiet Riot. Expect more news soon!
Rock Band Blitz is a downloadable title coming to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, similar in style to classic Rock Band games except you play all of the instruments with a controller. Again, the arcade game will cost $14.99 and 1200 MSP for their respective systems.
