Lego Rock Band
by Mark R
Man, iHarmonix has been squeezing all the life they can out of the RockBand franchise. After a recent announcement of the Beatles version, the company is now teaming with MTV, Warner Brothers Interactive, to create Lego Rock Band.
That’s right, someone wants to make version of Rock Band with Legos. All I have to say to that is: why not? I mean, Rock Band already allows you select characters to be the drummer, singer, and guitarist, so why not build them from a Lego minifig model? I have heard that players will play at “local venues, stadiums, and other fantasy locations”, but I say that players should be allowed to build their own stadiums from Lego bricks.
Another contributing company to this game is TT Games, who have created a lot of successful Lego games based on franchises such as Star Wars, Indiana Jones, and Batman.
Those games were designed for a younger audience, and it would appear that this Lego Rock Band is for the younger crowd as well. Some of the songs on the playlist include tunes like “Song 2” by Blur, “The Final Countdown” by Europe, and “Kung Fu Fighting” by Carl Douglas. I’m guessing the rest are “family friendly” tunes so that the game will receive an E rating rather that RockBand’s usual T.
Lego Rock Band is due to arrive for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Nintendo DS sometime before the holiday season. I really hope they make a Wii version.
