Exhausted Insanity and Boy Scouts - One Girl's Comic-Con Tale

Trying to summarize our adventure to Comic-Con which was Harmonixs first time on the floor and my first Community trip is one of the most daunting things Ive done to date at this job. In some ways, a string of words would almost work better: long lines, thick crowds, loud noises, super short skirt... Read more

Why We Rocked: Harmonix Showcase at PAX East 2010 For A Cause

Ive been fortunate enough to attend every PAX at which Rock Band has been present. Explaining the joyful insanity that is PAX to someone who hasnt attended is a challenge, but explaining the LUNACY that is the musical presence at this gaming convention is near impossible. Every year in Seattle, I w... Read more

Got to Get You Into My Life: HMXers and The Beatles Before The Beatles: Rock Band

Carolyn VanEseltine is a web QA tester at Harmonix. When not searching for ways to break the website, she plays the harp and piano with varying degrees of skill. She can play All You Need Is Love on both instruments, but not simultaneously. On September 9, 2009, The Beatles: Rock Band hit the... Read more

Tooner's PAX Tale

Tooner623 is a Rock Band fan and an obviously awesome groomsman. He just got engaged himself, and is hoping Harmonix will let him borrow (or maybe just send his way) an Ion Drum Kit. Read more

Abbey Road Tour

In July, HMXKat and I headed to London, England with Josh Randall, Project Director for The Beatles: Rock Band, to kick off the European Press Tour. Before the press tour we got to spend some quality time in Abbey Road Studio 2 doing some pre-tour press stuff. It was one of the pleasures and honors... Read more

PAX 2009

In September, the Community team headed to Seattle for Penny Arcade Expo 2009. It was a fantastic week, and it was fantastic to meet a ton of people from the RockBand.com forums.
