no, no rock band. It was in the wrap up, they call it a must buy. I'm out now though, so anything else I'll answer later (mario will be taking my time :D ).

I like how Blacksite Area 51 and Timeshift got around the same scores. A match made in mediocrity.
The Timeshift demo played teh suck though and Blacksite's was damn good.

I would be most interested to here how this highly anticipated (by me) game got shitcanned.
