Wii causes seizure before box is even opened.

Why do I want to smack this kid? Probably because I didn’t get a gaming system for Christmas. Also, I’m a jerk. Turn your speakers down before playing.

Rock Band 2 setlist and release dates

July 15, 2008

Pitchfork recently posted the upcoming setlist for Rock Band 2.  In addition to Dylan and AC/DC making their video game debut, “Shackler’s Revenge,” a track from the long-awaited Guns N’ Roses album, Chinese Democracy, will be featured in the game.

If you happen to own the original Rock Band, you’ll be able to export tracks from that disc onto the new game, and all the tunes you’ve downloaded for Rock Band the first will be playable in Rock Band 2. What’s more, each and every song featured on the Rock Band 2 On-Disc is culled from the master recordings, ensuring that your version of “Float On” won’t suffer the same fate as the Kidz Bop one. (Alas, there is still not much to be done with Geddy Lee.) Rock Band 2 will be available on Xbox 360 in September, with the PS2, PS3 and Wii incarnations to follow later this year.
