Rock Band Pro DLC Comes at a Premium, Song Exporting Confirmed

It won't be long now until wannabe musicians have a chance to prove their chops with Rock Band 3's Pro mode. The new setting will include actual finger placements and strumming patterns for guitarists and bassists, as well as enhanced drums to make the whole band setting decidedly more realistic. As it turns out though, players looking to download new Pro-compatible songs in the future may have to pay extra, as Harmonix looks to recoup the extra costs associated with preparing and charting such songs. More after the break. Read More

Metroid: Other M Hands-On

Hopped a train to New York, walked a few city blocks and arrived at Nintendo's office on Park Avenue. The 12th floor was home to their goods and a small, private patio party for Metroid: Other M. We scored an hour's worth of playtime before the demo ended (we were actually told to go no further). The demo wasn't so much a staged demo as it was the beginning of a near-retail build of the game. An hour's worth of play time found Samus an hour into the title. Consider that science and don a lab coat. Metroid has become more cinematic and deeper steeped in story than ever before. The cut scenes from the onset are lengthy, dramatic and detailed enough to actually feel nearly at home with Metal Gear. As epic as an hour per cut scene? No. But it's definitely built with drama and narrative scope in mind. The rendered graphics are fantastic. The scenes are all well-constructed and built with a love of the Metroid universe in mind. Samus looks sharp, and the Japanese style has been retained. Voice work was solid enough for the video game medium, but the Shure headphones on-site worked hard to point out the minor intricacies of awkward voice-over. Face it, voice acting in games is a tough bridge to cross. And, no, Samus does not sound like Nathan Drake. The story for Other M picks up with a re-done, cinematic version of the Super Metroid ending. The baby Metroid is boosting up our hero, fans catch a glimpse at a new, horrific and gruesome Mother Brain and Samus wakes up in a recovery room. Read More

My Games This Weekend - 08.07.09 - Can't Get Enough Metal Gear!

Hey there Kombo readers! My name is Alex and I'm relatively new to the site; I've been writing here for about a month or so. Before I get into what I've been playing, let me briefly share with you a little bit about myself. I'm 21 and have been playing games for as long as I can remember. I started on the Game Boy and have been fascinated with the industry ever since. I'm currently studying Pre-Med, but hope to continue writing about games on the side as long as time permits. Anyways, let's get into what I've currently been playing. At the moment, I only have a PS3 in my apartment, so I've been putting Sony's console to good use (and look forward to doing so in the future with so many good games on the horizon). I know what you're thinking, here we go, it's another Sony fanboy, but let me assure you I'm not. I equally respect each platform and the direction each of the big three has decided to take. The main reason why I hold the PS3 so close to my heart is because of one game, Metal Gear Solid 4. Read More
