221w ago - It's a banner DLC day at Rock Band- For the first time ever, they are offering a full-album DLC on the same day of its general release... namely, Pearl Jam's Backspacer.
To quote: If you know everything about Pearl Jam, think again: Backspacer may be the loudest, fastest album the Seattle quintet has ever made, with lots of full-throttle, garage-inspired rock and roll.
As guitarist Mike McCready explains in our exclusive interview, the album's celebratory mood just may have something to do with recent changed in the White House.
Fans are already calling it one of Pearl Jam's best–Rolling Stone just noted it's got the "shortest, tightest, punkiest tunes they've ever banged out"–and even non-fans are giving the new sound a thumbs-up.
You've probably heard the single, "The Fixer", a snarling rocker about making the world a better place–and we at Rock Band have got to love a song that has "Yeah, yeah, yeah" in the chorus. That's not even the loudest song here though; check out the three-chord thriller "Gonna See My Friend," with a hot solo that McCready recommends you all have some fun with.
That's not to say that you don't get to share some sensitive moments with Eddie Vedder, however; and on "Just Breathe" and "The End" you're invited to join him to contemplate...

224w ago - Insomniac Games Community Relations Manager James Stevenson has shared a new Ratchet's Rocket: A Crack in Time's Space Gameplay video today on the PlayStation Blog.
To quote: One of our huge focus points on Ratchet & Clank Future: A Crack in Time has been exploration and replay value. This focus is highlighted by our space exploration gameplay, which allows you to fly Ratchet's ship between the planets in the game - while landing on spherical moons and completing side quests.
We put together this video with Creative Director Brian Allgeier that will give you a first look at the new space gameplay.
One of our favorite parts of space gameplay is how it really rewards you for exploring. The various spherical moons contain Zoni, which allow you to upgrade your ship's abilities and weapons, and are also required to face-off against our final uber-boss in replay mode (that's right, hardcore fans, a special boss you'll need to get beat to get the last trophy).
There's also a huge incentive to explore in that you can discover new mods for your constructo weapons. We're also really excited because the designers have created some excellent platforming and hoverbooting moons -and some of them, especially later in...
