Excerpt: Until I played through Green Day: Rock Band , I didn't fully appreciate just how much of Green Day's music I enjoy. I'd listened through most of their albums a few times, but something had never quite clicked.
Excerpt: Wow. There are very few games that can leave you speechless and perhaps a little confused upon completion but Bayonetta is certainly one of them. Once you’ve hacked and slashed your way through the game you’ll have massacred hundreds of angels, ridden missiles across the ocean, tortured cherubs,...

The game features 47 songs total, including the entire “Dookie”, “American Idiot”, and “21st Century Breakdown” albums as well as a few other choice songs and...
Excerpt: Green Day Rock Band has lot to prove, especially after the Beatles showed how to do it right just months before. As the series' second stab at a band-themed game, Harmonix is hoping for just as successful an outing with one of the most popular acts in recent memory.
