If this were any other genre, I’d say releasing this on the heels of Starcraft 2 was a bad idea, but this is real time strategy we’re talking about here, and I’m sure for fans, there’s room in everyone’s lives for new ways to send your puppets off to die in a satisfyingly senseless manner.

God, every fiber of my being wants to complain again about the lack of single-player DLC but, for fuck’s sake, this pack adds multiplayer poker, a shotgun that fires explosive rounds, and horse racing. Where you can shoot guys off horses. I mean, come on.

COME ON.

It’s been a while since we got a full album release, let alone one that’s this big a deal. Pretty much all the Bob Marley songs 90% of the human populace knows in one package, minus Get Up, Stand Up, only because it’s in Rock Band 3. As gameplay, I think I’m most excited about the promise that harmonies will play a huge role here once RB3 hits, and that bassists get their due. I imagine quite a few of these being somewhat sparse and easy otherwise, although if you think the majority of the people downloading this are gonna be playing this clean and sober, you need to get out more.
