E3 Craziness…Tomorrow [GO]
June 4th, 2009 by Dan

It’s not quite time for the big E3 blowout, that will come tomorrow.

How about some quick bad news: word on the street is that The Beatles: Rock Band will not allow you to play non-Beatles music in it nor will it allow you to transfer Beatles songs out. That’s a pretty serious bummer for me! I love The Beatles as much as the next guy, but the thought of being restricted to only one band’s repertoire is unnecessarily limiting and kind of disappointing. This probably isn’t Harmonix’s fault, but it still stinks. I hope that LEGO Rock Band won’t be similarly crippled.

Speaking of The Beatles: Rock Band, how about those trailers? Wow! Word on the street is that the cinematic one is the opening movie for the game.

How cool was it that Paul, Ringo, Yoko, and Olivia were all at the presser too? Neat dev interview below:

Uncharted 2 also impressed me to a ridiculous degree with its action-packed trailer. Nathan Drake is probably my favorite video game hero nowadays and it just feels right to see him being just as awesome in a new setting.

Speaking of my favorite video game heroes, Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker comes as rather disappointing news to me. It’s not because it won’t be a great game or that it looks the most promising of the two that were announced in the big press conferences, but I’m bummed it’s on PSP. I don’t have one. Stupid Sony making me want to get a PSP…

Oh yeah, I finally went and beat the Endless Setlist 2 last night. It was a pretty epic ordeal; started at 1700ish and finished around 2330. Not for the faint of heart, let me tell you, but worth the 100 achievement points for beating it on expert (with minimal help from Darek), 24M fans, and 45k$ that allowed me to also get the “Spend 100k$ on clothes” achievement too. I also went and beat a guy in Score Duel, bringing me about four achievements away from full completion. Unfortunately, one of those involved beating the Endless Setlist without pausing or failing…there goes another six hours of my life…
