One thing that K Thor forgot to mention yesterday in his usual Monday rundown of new releases is the rest of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band for The Beatles Rock Band, which should be available this very moment. And man is it ever worth the download; some of the songs, primarily “Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite!” and “Within You Without You” feature some of the most intense and amazing visuals thus far. Though it shouldn’t come to any surprise for those familiar with the source material to know that a good portion of the new songs has you playing instruments other than a guitar, despite the fact that your controller is shaped like one. That’s been the case for almost forever, but it’s never been as readily apparent as it is here. But hey, it’s The Beatles, so it’s all-good.
Meanwhile, over at the other side, the latest embarrassment for Activision were a bunch of YouTube videos featuring Kurt Cobain and Johnny Cash dancing around and rapping along to “Low” by Flo Rida. Either in Guitar Hero 5 or the just released Band Hero; I honestly can’t keep track anymore. I’d pass along the videos myself, but as you can see, they’re long gone.
