The Rock Band Under-Tier Champion: “Antibodies”

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 sl…

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.”
