Double The Awesome: LEGO Rock Band

It’s one of the top searches on Twitter Search right now, and it’s not hard to understand why. Rock Band is awesome, right? And LEGOs are most definitely awesome. Put them together, and how can you not end up with something awesome?

A LEGO version of the popular Rock Band video game franchise is coming in time for this year’s holiday season, according to PC World, G4tv.com, and numerous other sources. The game will apparently combine the kid-friendly, build-your-own character aesthetic of the LEGO series with the proven gameplay format of the Rock Band and Guitar Hero franchises. Some Twitterers are pooping on the news, while others seem excited, offering that one way that the game would be even cooler is if the instrument controllers were made of LEGOs.

Me, I can’t wait to give this a try. As a parent, I’m always interested in seeing versions of games that I’m not embarrassed to play in front of my kid. But what do you think?
