Here’s a little food for thought. Did you know that Rock Band 3 went into development right after the release of Rock Band 2? During that two year period how many installments of the Guitar Hero franchise did Activision release? That number would be eight ( not including the handheld versions ). Now, how many of those games raised the bar as high as Harmonix’s Rock Band 3? If you answered zero, then you’re correct.
It’s been two years since Harmonix released a direct installment to the Rock Band franchise. Even though we’ve had the Beatles: Rock Band, Green Day: Rock Band, and Lego: Rock Band to fill the gap, those games were just appetizers. Rock Band 3 is the main course. Prepare to dig in.

I don’t often (or ever) purchase DLC. But, when I first heard about Undead Nightmare DLC for one of my favorite games of the year, Red Dead Redemption, I knew I’d purchase it. But should you?
Short answer: Absolutely.
Long answer: if you enjoyed Red Dead Redemption, and are looking for a Halloween-y themed game with terrific graphics, a great story, and some of the funniest dialog this side of GLaDOS, then you should run to your PS3, go to PlayStation Store and download this game right now. It is completely and utterly worth it.
After you download and install Undead Nightmare, you’re greeted with probably one of the greatest opening cutscenes in history. I laughed out loud a couple of times. Undead Nightmare plays itself off as a B-movie parody, and it’s pitch perfect. The laughter continues during Marshall Johnson’s mission, when a cutscene has John Marston return to Armadillo, and have a conversation with Armadillo’s resident homophobic, antisemitic racist bigot, Herbert Moon. After Moon launches into a tirade about how “Jewish British Catholic homosexuals” are responsible for the zombies infesting RDR’s world, he then walks away, and is almost immediately attacked by three zombies is by far the funniest part of the game.
