I hate Poni Hoax’s “Antibodies.” It isn’t fun to play. It’s not even really a good song. And it’s ridiculously under-tiered in Rock Band 3 for Guitar.
It’s possible this is just one of those songs I can’t wrap my five-button-brain around, but I expect much better of myself for a Tier 3 song. I couldn’t one-lighter this one fast enough.
Rock Band setlist for 3/26:
(Most weeks, my buddy Ken and I get together and on about half of those, fake plastic rocking ensues. Here’s what we played tonight. I was on Expert Guitar, he on Expert Drums.)
- Counting Crows: “Accidentally in Love”
- Pearl Jam: “Alive”
- AC/DC: “Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap (Live)”
- The Jimi Hendrix Experience: “Fire”
- Foo Fighters: “My Hero”
- Jethro Tull: “Aqualung”
- Judas Priest: “The Hellion/Electric Eye”
- Muse: “Hysteria”
- The Offspring: “Pretty Fly (for a White Guy)”
- Rascal Flatts: “Life Is a Highway”
- Pearl Jam: “Even Flow”
- Silversun Pickups: “Well Thought Out Twinkles”
- Journey: “Any Way You Want It”
I would make a horrendous DJ.
Looks like the music game business is slowly imploding. Critical mass in fake plastic instruments must have been reached. First, RedOctane is closed by Activision, and now this:
Harmonix shareholders received a payout of $150 million related to the franchise’s 2007 performance, but Viacom has said in a filing with the US Securities And Exchange Commission (via Paid Content): “We believe that we are entitled to a refund of a substantial portion of amounts previously paid, but the final amount of the earn-out has not yet been determined.”
