Gold Member Deals of the Week (Monday) - Hydrophobia (400 pts) - Aqua (400 pts) - Hydro Thunder Hurricane (800 pts)
The original release of Hydrophobia got some really bad reviews, but they patched it - and by "patched," I mean they lowered the price and overhauled the entire game. New control scheme, new AI, new physics, bug fixes, they shortened cut screens, they basically redid everything. I didn't play the original version, but I did try the demo once it was redone, and I thought it was pretty good. Given this week's sale which drops the price even further, I picked it up.

I think there are instrument parts, you're just playing along with the voices. And I read an interview (can't find it right now) that said they want to put the Carmen Sandiego theme into Rock Band Network but they'd need to figure out who owns the rights to it.
It's not for the easily frustrated. I had a bunch of problems with the flicking motion needed for stuff like the ping pong game. I really *wanted* to like it, and I'm sure that if you spent enough time with it you'd get really good.
