Robots, Plus Music Part Two
Posted on Tuesday, September 25 @ 21:51:38 Eastern by Duke_FerrisWe have a Roomba that scuttles around the place keeping things tidy and immensely cheering me up, so I spent part of the day today building him a robot friend.
I'm really just a big kid at heart, so when Revell called me to see if I wanted a VEXplorer robot, it was the easiest question I ever answered. Because this new robot has the potential to bring me beer.
It's not quite finished, and I'm charging up the roughly 7,000 batteries the thing needs, but hopefully tomorrow we'll have some video of it in action. And someday we'll pit them against each other in a fight to the death. 200 Quatloos on the newcomer!
Back to the music! As if they read my Manifesto, it was announced today that the Sex Pistols (the living ones anyway) got back together to re-record Anarchy in the UK for Guitar Hero III. The band Living Colour also reunited to bring Cult of Personality to the game.
It's an amazing phenomenon how Guitar Hero went from having almost no real artists, to becoming a status symbol among bands to make it into the game. The proof? No "as made famous by" for The Rolling Stones and their hit Paint it Black to be included in Guitar Hero III. It really doesn't get much bigger than that.
