The online modes have been left mostly the same, but tour mode is now online as “Battle of the Bands,” so the old modes are somewhat irrelevant to me. Combining the songs I’ve downloaded with the songs imported from the original Rock Band, I have over two hundred songs available to play in Rock Band 2. Choosing a song to play is like looking at someone’s iTunes library. It’s better than the original in every facet of gameplay and presentation, but of course, the game’s own song selection is what really matters, and it somehow manages to best its predecessor. It’s got Bon Jovi, Journey, Modest Mouse, Blondie, Beck, and more. Many of the songs aren’t obvious, and that’s what makes it so great. So basically, it’s still Rock Band.

T-Shirt Designs: Woot Shirt Derby

Posted on Sep 18, 2008 in Artwork, Contests | 1 comment

Here are some of my favorite ones: uprooted_by_link42 “Uprooted” urban_equalizer_by_link42 “Urban Equalizer” an_apple_a_day_by_link42 “An Apple a...
