It’s hard enough to find a game sequel that is dramatically better than the original, and even more difficult to find a third installment that’s even better.
Maybe that’s why I was prepared for disappointment with Rock Band 3.
Hopeful? Yes, but I was also ready to be let down.
Fortunately, in all the ways that matter, Rock Band 3 is better than it’s predecessors, and if you’ll pardon the pun (if you play the game, you’ll understand) it delivers in Spades.
If you were paying attention, the back of your Rock Band 2 instruction booklet (you know, INSIDE the case) has a code to get 20 free songs. Granted the songs are from virtually unheard of indie artists, but that’s how you discover new music… and what part of FREE didn’t you understand?
All you have to do is visit http://www.rockband.com/bonustracks and enter the code, verify your email, and wait for them to send you a code to enable the download the songs in XBLM or the PS Store.
The codes are now being mailed out, so if you were unaware of this promo (I know a lot of people that are) or you’ve been patiently waiting… now is the time.
