Hello all and welcome to episode 15 “Nothing Rock Band”. I’m sure all of you are happy to hear that and are excited to get started. This week we cover some New Xbox Experience, This Xbox Life forums, Gears of War 2 ranking system, a little GTA IV DLC, and finish up with our VIP section. Sit back and enjoy!
Activision is hard at work deleting your song creations off GHTunes, Kyle talks about a big Fable 2 announcement, Harmonix makes big bucks, Microsoft breaks out the ban hammer, Kyle tells us how to use your PC or Laptop to connect your Xbox to Live, and then we get into some Gears of War 2 reviews. After all that, we tackle your questions and update you on our Logo contest. So check out the show and be sure to send in your Logo entries.
Welcome one and all to This Xbox Life Episode 13. This week Brun is on the field waiting in line for his copy of Gears of War 2, so that means it gives Mark, Kyle, and Rob time to shine during this hour long episode (just kidding Brun we heart you!). This week Mark starts the show off with a discussion on how Microsoft has halved the NXE, and whether or not we are still looking forward to the update on the 19th. Next, I start discussion about how Actiblizzard continues to find ways to steal their consumers wallets. And would it be a This Xbox Life episode if we did not launch into a discussion on Rock Band or Guitar Hero? NO! Thats right folks, we give you the low-down on the lastest songs hitting the marketplace this week in Rock Band, and boy are they good! We close the show with a discussion on how Rare’s latest and great Banjo game has a problem that they are not willing to fix. We then head to our V.I.P section, and continue to remind everyone of our image competition to win some very cool prizes!!! Look for the Community Conversation thread later this week to get your voice heard on our show!
We are up to a dozen shows and growing stronger each week. This episode was done in honor of the greatest band to ever live (according to Brun) and we pepper their greatest hit throughout the show all in honor of Brun. Kyle asks “What’s up with all the Zombies lately”. Mark talks about the Beatles coming to a console near you. Brun then makes the mistake of asking what he thought was a simple question which launches Mark, Kyle, and Rob on a 30 minute review of Guitar Hero World Tour and how it compares to Rock Band 2. Kyle then pokes some fun at Sony once again and then its off to the slew of VIP comments. Don’t miss our final minute of the show either as we reveal a new host……from the dead……..
