  1. Guitar Hero released in 2005 for the PlayStation 2, quickly becoming a phenomenon that spawned years of plastic guitar shredding. With a slick, novelty controller and a punk art style, the plucky title became a party attraction everyone could enjoy. Should the game that made the whole world feel like all of their air guitar practice sessions were building up to something special be called one of the best games of all-time? Each week we will be tackling a video game, old or new, that at least one of us believes deserves to stand as one of the greatest games of all time. We'll dive into its history, development, and gameplay, while trying to argue for or against the game of the week. Sometimes we will be in harmonious agreement, other times we might be fighting a bitter battle to the very end. However each episode shakes out, we hope that everyone who listens will find the show entertaining and informative. Outro music: The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker 'The Swaggin' Dragon' by ToxicxEternity (http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR03766) You can download or listen to the podcast over on Soundcloud, our hosting site, and iTunes. A YouTube version is available as well, so you can watch what we are talking about while we talk about it! If you want to have your opinion heard on air, share your opinion in the comments, follow the show on Twitter, and participate in the weekly polls: @BestGamesPeriod New episodes of The Best Games Period will be released every Monday Don't forget to sign up for Extra Life to help sick and injured kids in hospitals around the US and Canada by playing games!

  3. The creators of Rock Band have a new game available today called Super Beat Friends that has just released on the Nintendo Switch. The party game features a cartoonish collection of sports mini-games that weave frantic multiplayer action with some boppin' music. The relentlessly positive title offers engrossing co-op and competitive modes in a package that's designed to appeal to all ages. Games included in Super Beat Sports include: Rhythm Racket - Protect your own goal while gunning for your friends' in a more musical take on a classic game set up. Whacky Bat - Players must hit back pitches using bats while timing their swings along with the music to build combos and earn points. Net Ball - Similar to volleyball but played with hockey sticks, 1-2 players try to keep the volley over the net going for as long as possible against alien opponents. Buddy Ball - Bash balls with 1-4 buddies! Gobble Golf - The goal here is to feed aliens by grooving along with the music either solo or with a friend. Super Beat Friends supports HD Rumble in the Switch's Joy-Cons, which leads to Harmonix claiming that "each swing feels unique" throughout the game's 100+ levels. Also, Super Beat Friends maintains 60 frames per second across all of the Switch's modes of play. Super Beat Friends is available now on the Nintendo Switch eShop - maybe a good game to pull out on Game Day? View full article

  7. The developer of Rock Band 4 is looking for people who can't get enough Rock Band to join their crew and earn rewards by playing even more Rock Band. To be a bit more specific, Harmonix is searching for the following: People who are accepted into the Road Crew will be given a free Rock Band 4 Band-in-a-Box Bundle before the official release date. You will then be able to complete gigs involving creating and sharing Rock Band 4 content via social media, hosting a battle of the bands, and getting friends and family to pre-order Rock Band 4. The more gigs you complete as a member of the Road Crew, the more rewards you can earn. These rewards include: Rock Band 4 DLC, gaming and music e-magazines, gift cards, and swag signed by the developers at Harmonix. People who are interested can apply for a position on the Road Crew on the Rock Band website. The only stipulations are that applicants must be over the age of 18, live in one of the 50 US states, the District of Columbia, or Canada (excluding Quebec). The program could expand in the future, but will initially be limited to those regions. Applications are being accepted until September 18. View full article

  9. Harmonix announced today that they've been working on Rock Band 4 and the project will be coming to both Xbox One and PlayStation 4 before 2016. From the Harmonix announcement: For years you have been unified in solidarity with one single demand: "Give us a new Rock Band!" Well, today, my friends, is your day. "Give us a new Rock Band!" Okay. You win. We’ll do it. "When will Rock Band return?" Oh I dunno, HOW ABOUT THIS YEAR? 2015! After five years of waiting, we're getting more Rock Band! The new release touts new mechanics, new guitars, and more. Unfortunately, we don't know much about those new things, just that they will be different than what we've seen before and make use of technology that would have been impossible to implement in Rock Band 3. We do know a few tasty pieces of information, though. Perhaps most importantly, customers who have purchased DLC for Rock Band will see that content carry over into Rock Band 4. Since the first Rock Band in 2007, there have been over 2000 songs adapted for Rock Band gameplay and Harmonix wants to do good by the people who have paid for that content. “Since the beginning, we’ve called Rock Band a music platform. Players responded by downloading hundreds of their favorite tracks, and building a massive library of playable music,” says Daniel Sussman, the production manager for Rock Band 4, “It’s important for us to respect those purchases and enable our fans to bring that content over to the Rock Band platform on new generation consoles.” However, bringing so many songs up to date takes work. Harmonix cautions that there may be delays in how quickly those legacy tracks carry over to Rock Band 4. Beyond the music, peripherals from the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 should also work with Rock Band 4. It might be time to dust off that guitar and drum set! For those looking to land a brand-spankin'-new guitar, Harmonix has teamed up with Mad Catz to provide a line of Rock Band 4 instrument peripherals. Attendees of PAX East 2015 will be able to pre-order a limited edition Penny Arcade guitar controller at the Harmonix booth. Check out this behind-the-scenes video from the Harmonix team about Rock Band 4. They discuss the challenges they face, but you can really tell how excited they are to finally be able to talk about their game. For those about to rock, we salute you. Chances are Rock Band 4 will hit during the holiday season, so prepare your wallets and bank accounts for the onslaught. View full article
