We’ve run across these kinds of themes in media before, in movies like That Thing You Do and School of Rock. We’ve also seen it in games like Rock Band and Guitar Hero, but this little casual sim makes you the manager of an up-and-coming rock band from Baltimore.

This band has a blue-sy kind of sound, and even features an electric violin. You do actually get to hear their tracks when they play at more elite venues, and if you are a fan of Dave Matthews Band, you will really enjoy these guys, whose name you have to give them.

Need for Speed III is the first Hot Pursuit game of the series. It sounds like Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit III, but it is not. Hot Pursuit III is on the PS3 and it is called Hot Pursuit.

In this game you can chose which track you want to play on and you can turn it off and on with traffic option. For me, I like playing in the traffic. You can play two players with this game, but you can’t play online. The reason why you can’t play online is that a PSone game. This game is really old. This has been around since 1998. This game is OK, but I like the second Hot Pursuit game better. The graphics of this game looks old school, but the graphics look OK. The gameplay looks OK as well. The gameplay runs like first Ridge Racer game, but Ridge Racer is better than this game. I know graphic didn’t look all that great, but I love the gameplay.

Army Men RTS is a real time strategy game. It is the third game of the Sarge’s Heroes series. In this Army Men game, you are building the Green Army so you can destroy the Tan Army. This game is more fun to play then the other real time strategy. This game is only for PlayStation 2, Nintendo Game Cube, and for PC.

The PlayStation 2 and the Nintendo Game Cube controls are little bit hard then the other strategy game on console, but the PC version the controls are easier. Because the controls on the PC version are easier because you are use the mouse instead of a controller. When you are playing this game you need to build a army so you can destroy the Tan Army. You can build your own base. This game is like War Craft II: Tides of Darkness and Age of Empires III. You are not cutting down trees, not digging up for gold, and not hunting for food. You are melting toys and batteries.

This game is a true classic and has been around in one form or another since 1987 when it was made for the Commodore 64 by MicroProse. The game has come along way since then and has been updated with 3D graphics and smoother game play. Much of the game is the same as it was in its initial release but now has a mini dance game and better turn based land battles. In all this is one of the best versions of the game so far with ports of it and the old one going to smart phones and pads. How far Sid Meier, Firaxis and 2k Games takes this title is still to be seen but I doubt that they will let such a popular title like this die and fade away. I am sure it will go to see “One more time”, if not more, if you forgive the pun.

Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness

We know there World of Warcraft but there Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness and it even better than World of Warcraft. In this game you are building and army. This game is about two races fighting each other. The races are the human and the orcs. You can play either of those two races. I always played the humans because the humans are on the good side. I always play the good side in every videogame. When you play this there a map on the left side of the computer screen and the blue and red tiny spot on map. The blue is the humans and the red are the orcs. When I look at that map it reminds me about the politics. The Democrats is the blue and the red are the Republicans. The graphics in this game are better than World of Warcraft. The gameplay in this kind like Age of Empires. You are building walls, training solders, building battleships and farms. The gameplay in this game isn’t World of Warcraft.
