Out of the Blue

I got to head up to MTV's offices yesterday for a preview of Beatles Rock Band, triply motivated by being a fan of Rock Band, a fan of the Beatles, and a one-time MTV employee (so I could scope their current digs). Most of what went on is embargoed for a future date, but the embargo on revealing 15 previously unannounced songs ends today at 9:00 am EDT, so here is rare out of the blue "news," and console news at that. Here are the previously unannounced songs:

Twist and Shout, Do You Want to Know a Secret, Can't Buy Me Love, I Wanna Be Your Man, Eight Days a Week, Paperback Writer, And Your Bird Can Sing, Sgt, Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, With a Little Help From My Friends, Within You Without You / Tomorrow Never Knows (remix from the LOVE album), Yellow Submarine, Revolution, Birthday, Dig a Pony, and I've Got a Feeling.

The Beatles ruled, 'nuff said.
"Van Gogh painted alone and in despair and in madness and sold one picture in his entire life. Millions struggled alone, unrecognized, and struggled as heroically as any famous hero. Was it worthless? I knew it wasn't."

Highlighting the music of one of the only bands that were able to create truly timeless music.

Not for the boy-band songs listed above.

So Beatles Rock Band is basically all their shit pop music?

I think you've got that the other way around. The original Rock Band is the shit pop music. This one is the Beatles Edition. Highlighting the music of one of the only bands that were able to create truly timeless music.

FatalTourist, can't you just go back a save?

I could... but I'd rather just start a new character and wander off to some parts of the map I never even went to. Something about going back to old save that I don't like.

I'll definitely get that expansion. It sounds cool!

Inadvertently finished Fallout 3 the other night. Didn't finish tons of side quests, so I guess I'll have to play it again! This time I'll avoid the main quest.

Buy Broken Steel. It extends the game beyond the main quest and gives the game a much better ending. Plus it removes "the end" and lets you play the game indefinitely.

I'm a HUGE Beatles fan. There are some killer tracks in there, though there are a lot better track in their repertoire. I can't wait until all the remastered albums are released; it's certainly going to cost me a bit, especially as I want to get all of them (it's £170 for the stereo boxset, and £200 for the mono boxset). But this September is sure to introduce The Beatles to a whole new generation and their music easily stands the test of time.
