Haha. I'd enjoy getting another rushed Guitar Hero band-centered game for free, especially since it's RHCP. At least Green Day never had 19 songs on either Rock Band or Guitar Hero.

I need Dead Rising 2, god dammit.

Anyone know if there's a release date on Dead Rising... Code Zero (I think that's what it's called; Not sure). I can't find one.
