Rock Band 3 players will get new tracks next week just in time for Valentines Day. Imagine the dreamy look in your lover’s eyes as you croon Extreme’s “More Than Words” or REO Speedwagon’s “Keep on Loving You”. Or, in the event you are going through a bit of a rough patch, you can always wail Nazareth’s “Love Hurts” or be a bit bitchy with club staple “Tainted Love” from Soft Cell. Then, there’s always Peter Cetera’s “Glory of Love”. But I can’t imagine any situation which would call for someone singing a track from the The Karate Kid 2 soundtrack. Different strokes, I guess. Anyway, the tunes will be available for the usual price on PS3, Wii and Xbox 360 February 12 and through PSN in Europe on February 13.
