Earlier today, it was announced that:
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and TT Games have joined forces with the LEGO Group, Harmonix and MTV Games to merge two of the most popular videogame franchises with the creation of LEGO® Rock Band®. The unique family-friendly music experience is currently in development by TT Games in partnership with Harmonix, and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment.
As many of you know, I am big fan of the LEGO® video game series:
Blog post — LEGO : Star Wars – the best kids’ game that I know of
Blog post — LEGO : Batman – even better than Star Wars !
And I am currently playing LEGO : Indiana Jones trilogy with one of my sons
But this is great news because my wife and I have discussed before that while we’d like to play Rock Band. Our best times to play are when the kids’ are asleep. We could play as a family but frankly, most of the titles aren’t exactly friendly for pre-teens. So, until MTV Games decides to release Rock Band downloadable content from the ‘Contemporary Christian’ genre (yeah, not holding my breath) – this is as close to Rock Band as I get without an occasional guys’ night out.
