As we approach the five-year anniversary of the ROCK BAND platform this November, the folks at Harmonix just keep rolling out the new DLC to bring some fresh rock to both ROCK BAND 3, and the newly-released ROCK BAND BLITZ. Next week, 311 makes their Rock Band debut with a trio of tracks destined to be rocked by family and friends worldwide. The Rock Father has all the details below...

The ROCK BAND platform has been connecting families and friends through a love of music for nearly five years now, and this Tuesday their string of new DLC continues with some GREEN DAY music new and old to coincide with the release of ¡Uno!, the first album in the new GREEN DAY Trilogy. Harmonix hit The Rock Father with the details, and I've got them for you below.

Earlier this year, I highlighted The Mattel Toy Store of Wilmot, Wisconsin in a "Rock Father Adventure" blog here on the site. It's been a few months since we've made the trip, but on Friday we went back - lured in by a phone call received here at HQ about a shipment of KNIGHT RIDER Hot Wheels they'd received. While I'm still on the hunt for their basic $1 Knight Industries 2000, what the folks at The Mattel Toy Store received was something a little more special: The Special Edition K.I.T.T. that was previously offered as a San Diego Comic-Con Exclusive this past July.

Last month, Hasbro Games invited Addie and I to check out their new ELEFUN SNACKIN' SAFARI, the latest addition to their Elefun & Friends Line. Since the little one is already a big fan of the original Elefun (where you catch little butterflies), we couldn't resist another adventure with the big blue pachyderm.

Written by

Harmonix just hit The Rock Father with details on next week's ROCK BAND DLC, and fans of THE BLACK KEYS will be excited. Three more tracks from the group will be headed to the Rock Band Music Store on August 21st as a part of "The Black Keys Pack 02".

I've said it before, and I'll keep saying it again and again: Sometimes Daddy needs to blow some stuff up good, and on November 13th, I will likely be doing just that when CALL OF DUTY: BLACK OPS 2 arrives. Activision just hit The Rock Father with some new screens fresh from the in-progress Gamescom in Germany. Check 'em out below.

I know a lot of you fancy yourselves to be Portal Masters, hence you'll dig some news on the forthcoming Activision Release, SKYLANDERS GIANTS (out Oct 21). The family-friendly SKYLANDERS are returning with 16 new Skylanders including Giants, Lightcore Skylanders, and Series 2 Skylanders. The cross-platform adventure gets much bigger all the way around, and straight out of Gamescom 2012 in Germany comes a ton of new photos and videos, all of which can be viewed below...

The folks over at AMERICAN GIRL have supplied The Rock Father with the full details on their newest historical character, Caroline Abbott. Set for release on September 4, Caroline's debut ''will inspire today's girls with stories of courage and kindness as she becomes a true hero by giving of herself without expecting anything in return. Caroline is a 9-year-old girl growing up near Lake Ontario (Sackets Harbor) during the War of 1812.'' As with all historical character releases, Caroline will be presented as an 18" doll, complete with accessories and a story told in a six-book set. Photos and more details on all six books below!

The folks at Harmonix just hit The Rock Father with the latest news on DLC coming to their ROCK BAND platform, which is still rocking hard nearly five years-in! Next week, tracks from HOOBASTANK, WHITESNAKE, and CUTTING CREW will be hitting the Rock Band store. Check out the details below.

Skylanders: The Best Skylanders Cakes...

Written by

SKYLANDERS have really become a big thing in recent months, something that kind of flew under my radar despite my review of the game last December. In fact, I know that some of my fellow Dad Bloggers (like Jeff Bogle over at Out With The Kids) are pretty into it. Well, I may have to delve back into that world as Robert Welkner from Coin-Op TV just sent me an email with a link to the video that you're about to watch: The Best Skylanders Cakes. Yes, with how big the Skylanders are getting, the characters have become a popular theme for Birthday Parties and Special Occasions, and Rob has scoured the internet to find some of the best designs. Take a look.

The folks over at Diamond Select Toys hit The Rock Father with details on some upcoming Minimates this afternoon, complete with photos. Among the new offerings are figures and vehicles from THE MUNSTERS, STAR TREK (the original series), and a special version of SANTA CLAUS... on a pirate ship. Are any of you collecting these? Check out the details below...

Harmonix hit The Rock Father with news that tracks from Foster the People and The Strokes are headed to the Rock Band™ Music Store of downloadable content for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and Wii. These new additions are compatible with Rock Band 3, and the forthcoming Rock Band Blitz. Details below...
