    Makes you wonder why they keep ignoring what the people actually want. Virtually every time they post something on Facebook, hundreds of people just comment asking when we're getting RB4.

    I guess they are looking for something other than the dancing game that is music based to replace Rockband.

    Beyond me why they would drop Rockband like they have. I did wonder if they were waiting for the new consoles, but who knows what they are thinking now. :)

    Fail.
    -1
    Would not bang...
    :facepalm:


    So since Rock Band 3 in 2010, we will of had:
    - three Dance central games
    - VidRhythm
    - Rock Band Blitz
    - Fantasia
    - Chroma

    I guess i can understand if they dont think it's the right time, not enough economic viability, or are bored / done-it-all for Rock Band. But still disappointing.


    As for the game itself: i'm guessing it's a Counterstrike / TeamFortress type shooter, with what essentially looks like damage and defence enhances if you shoot (or activate powers) in sync with the music.
    While it's an interesting idea, i have doubts thats enough to be really successful.

    My only hope is given this is a PC game, they're working on a console music game which uses instruments...

    Just seen the trailer - hmm. Could be interesting though as a premise. A lot is really going to hinge on the plot and gameplay.

    Seems to me that Harmonix really don't know what to do at the moment.

    Well I have a few ideas :D

    Playing a game that uses your favourite music as a game element is pretty cool as an idea, but so it's so hard to pull something original off. I guess we should be applauding them for trying.

    You never know. It might be a nice little distraction. I know it was totally different but I used to love the odd blast on REZ
