Play Rock Band on Valentine’s Day; Lose Love, Win Money

If you’re a pasty-skinned video game nerd who would like an excuse to hook up with that honey in your WoW guild who lives up the street, then perhaps the event below is for you. Also, if you’re cool and own an Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 and Rock Band, you might also like it. Me, I’m still making do with my NES emulator, so I’ll pass.

However, were the fine people at MTV, Virgin, or 1up willing to send me a fly new video game system and Rock Band set for free, I would happily attend, and would also play it every day, and write about it lovingly, as though it were a blood relation–a cousin, or my mother.

(I will say on a slightly serious note that it is a little surprising and a little neat that Orlando makes a list alongside New York and Los Angeles as the only three American cities where two major media conglomerates are choosing to hold a large promotional event.)

    The promotional debut of Rock Band was held in several cities that included Orlando (here at Full Sail) as well. Otronicon is in Orlando as well, which had a pretty big Rock Band display with rigged up real drums for the percussion control.

    Do you think any of them could get me a free Xbox?

    Hi! I’m adding a link to your blog to my East Orlando site,; it’s a free classifieds/links site for Orlando, and home to the bi-annual Avalon Park Community Yard Sale, the Biggest Yard Sale in Orlando (Next up, April 12th 2008…the last had over 80 families participate). Take a look if you’re interested!
