While we may not be seeing anything from Guitar Hero anymore (or for however long they want to stay away from it) the DLC over in the Rock Band camp doesn't seem to be slowing down anytime soon. Next week will see the addition of four songs by Fleetwood Mac and two by Stevie Nicks to Rock Band 3
. The songs that will be available for DLC are as follows:
Fleetwood Mac - "Dreams"
Fleetwood Mac - "Gold Dust Woman"
Fleetwood Mac - "Landslide"
Fleetwood Mac - "Rhiannon"
Stevie Nicks - "Edge of Seventeen (Just Like the White Winged Dove)"
Stevie Nicks - "Stand Back"
This is what I like about Rock Band. Don't oversaturate the music game genre, just release some DLC every week, and I'm a happy camper.
