Are you a fan of games that bring back many good old memories? Do you pride yourself on being good with movie quotes? Then the next game you should be looking forward to is Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon. You do not need Far Cry 3 to play; in fact the two games have little to no crossover in the storylines.
Are you one of the avid fans of the Rock Band franchise? I have a few friends that have spent so much money on DLC I’m amazed at the amount of songs I can play. Just think what it looks like on Rock Band Blitz! Anyways, Harmonix has announced that the Dave Matthews Band will have three songs coming on November 6th on Xbox 360 and on the 7th for PS3. What tracks might these be?
Earlier this year, at PAX East, I had the opportunity to play a bit of Rock Band Blitz, and let me tell you, it was pretty bad ass. It was easily one of those games that I just couldn’t wait to play again. After waiting, and waiting, and WAITING, Harmonix has finally announced the release date and pricing for Rock Band Blitz, previously scheduled for “Summer 2012.” Do you remembe...[Read More]

I have mentioned this multiple times on this site, but while I may have been born in the very early 80’s, I am a child of the 90’s. I wore wallet chains, baggy shorts that were so long they may as well have been pants, and I was rarely ever without my backwards cap. It was a simpler time, with great style, great games, and great music. Pearl Jam was huge in the 90’s, and while th...[Read More]
When I thought of doing the TBBYNHO series, I was listening to Circle Jerks. To be more specific, I was taking a walk while listening to Teenage Electric, and I thought to myself, “More people need to listen to this band.” You’ll never know how difficult it was for me to resist putting Lemon Party as the article image for this piece, but by mentioning it I either made you think a...[Read More]
I’m willing to bet that you’ve heard of the band Rancid, especially if you listened to alternative stations in the 90’s when they started hitting it big on the radio. I’m also willing to bet that some of you, though not nearly as many, have heard of Operation Ivy. To bring the rest of you up to speed, Operation Ivy was a short-lived late-80’s band that served as one o...[Read More]
The Bouncing Souls have one of the most apropos band names I’ve ever heard. With a distinctive sound, listening to The Bouncing Souls gives me an exuberant feeling that makes me want to smile, laugh, dance, and just move around in general. If you ever see me while I’m driving, and I’m bouncing around, slamming my hands against the steering wheel like it’s a drum kit, and si...[Read More]
One of our goals here at Marooners’ Rock is to cover more than just video games; we want to cover movies, TV, music, comics, and more. A friend dubbed it “Transmedia.” Well, it’s time to make good on that goal. My personal contribution to help kickstart it is a weekly series called “The Best Bands You’ve Never Heard Of.” This new series will try to open up...[Read More]
Now, wait a minute. Before you start haphazardly dogpiling me with scorn, give me a chance to make my case. Let me assure you, this will not be about bands like Dashboard Confessional, Bright Eyes, My Chemical Romance, The Get Up Kids, etc. These bands are a perversion of what Emo was at its origin, and are not at all representative of its glorious roots. Did that get your attention? Are you now a...[Read More]
When I was a kid, I was restricted to the music my parents would let me listen to: 50s & 60s rock & roll and classical. Don’t get me wrong, I loved (and still love) that music, but I needed more. As I neared my teens, I discovered grunge, alternative, and more; I replaced The Zombies with Soundgarden, Wagner with Oasis. Then, in my fifteenth year of life, I moved to California with m...[Read More]
