MTV Games hints at next big thing; announcement coming soon

With Rock Band out in stores (well, kinda), publisher MTV Games is already looking for their next hit. Early bets were on similar music-themed titles (they are MTV, after all).

Rock Band and turkey: a Thanksgiving family test

"Did you bring that Mario game? Your father really wants to try it ... what is that?" "A plastic drum set, mom," I reply. "We're going to pretend to be rock and roll stars as a family and then I'm going to write about it for work." She stares intrigued for two, maybe three nanoseconds before utteri...

Today in Joystiq: November 20, 2007

When we did our unboxing, we didn't take a good picture from Rock Band's drumkit instructions. We're glad gcacho did. Why do we love the instruction manual?

MTV Games continues to publish new music titles in its $500 million spree, with the latest Harmonix development, Phase. The original Phase news reminded some of us too much of (non) game, Musika to buy. But this video clearly shows simple pattern-matching gameplay that may rock pockets better than t...

Rock Band questions answered (some of 'em)

The folks over at Multiplayer used their "We work for MTV" powers to get some answers out of Harmonix about Rock Band. Of course, the fact that Harmonix also works for MTV probably aided them in this process. Ah yes, they even mention it in the post, so there you go. Anywho, Harmonix answered a few...
