Published on Friday, 25 February 2011 14:36
With seven tracks already in the Music Store Harmonix can’t seem to get enough of Nine Inch Nails. Next week four tracks from the rock group’s recently remastered album “Pretty Hate Machine” will be available
Available for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii on Tuesday, March 1.
- “Terrible Lie”
- “Head Like A Hole”
- “The Only Time”
All four tracks are available individually or together as “Pretty Hate Pack 01” for a discount.
A Pro Guitar and Pro Bass upgrade is available for “Head Like A Hole”.
To celebrate the upcoming release of the Fender Squier Stratocaster Guitar Controller eleven older DLC tracks are receiving Pro Guitar and Pro Bass upgrades. These will also be available on March 1 alongside the NIN content.
- Blink 182 - “Dammit”
- Boston - “More Than A Feeling”
- Creedence Clearwater Revival - “Bad Moon Rising”
- Creedence Clearwater Revival - “Fortunate Son”
- Eve 6 - “Inside Out”
- The James Gang - “Funk #49”
- The Knack - “My Sharona (Cover Version)”
- Lynyrd Skynyrd - “Simple Man”
- Metallica - “...And Justice For All”
- The Offspring - “Self Esteem”
- Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble - “Pride and Joy”
All upgrades are the customary $0.99 price and of course you need to own the track before purchasing the upgrade.
NOTE: Since these are “legacy” tracks no Keys, Pro Keys, or Harmonies are being added.
Fans have been asking for these Pro upgrades for older DLC and Harmonix delivers again. Has anyone bought any of the Pro instruments? Are there any older songs you’d like to receive the upgrade?
Here we are. The next generation of consoles is among us and it is finally time to start thinking about finally unplugging our beloved current-gen systems. Could there be a better swan song for one of these systems than taking a trip back to Rapture?
Let’s face it: buying digital games is significantly more convenient than buying from a retail store. You don’t have to put pants on to go outside, nor do you even have to go outside. You don’t have to drive to the store, nor do you have to wait in line at said store. On top of that, the price is generally the exact same, if not more for the physical version.
Let’s face it: staying in just your underwear, FTW.
Despite the overwhelming advantages of buying digital, I still can’t fully commit to it. While I understand I am more in the minority with each day that goes by, I truly believe I have a legitimate case about buying physical copies of games.
In some sort of cosmic twist, I have seen the future. No, I didn’t find out where/when/why I’ll die, nor did I even find out what I’ll have for breakfast tomorrow (I hope it’s pancakes). But I assure you, I have seen the future.
The future of video games that is. I recently got to test out Morpheus - uh, I mean PlayStation VR - Sony’s answer to the ever-growing interest in virtual reality. Although the headset is currently far from completion, it’s also far from shotty.
Whether it’s a rainy day, a sickness, or some other reason not to go outside and enjoy the beautiful summer air, video games are the perfect way to spend your time - that is, if you can find a game to play. In terms of releases, summer generally isn’t the most fruitful of seasons, and this year is no different. So what games could/should you be sinking your teeth into during the dog days?
