Xbox 360 Fancast 011 -- Pillow Fight Unlocked

The 360 Fancast is back again with another glorious episode. This week, we sort out lots of important things like Burnout 5, broken guitars, the new Annex game type in Gears of War, and of course, pillow fights. We also have another fan submitted 360 Fancast theme song, and we'd like to know what you guys think about it. Give it a listen during the show (around the 41 minute mark) and send us an email at Fancast [at] Xbox360Fanboy [dot] com. Finally, we close out the show with a detailed discussion of content unlocks in games (specifically unlocking songs in Guitar Hero II). Do content unlocks deny consumers what they paid for, or do they reward dedicated gamers?

Unfortunately, one of our bloggers had some recording issues, which results in him sounding like a quaint Victrola recording. Think of it as a free history lesson. Download the show in one of three flavors below.

I approve of the extensive Guitar Hero 2 coverage. It's the same conversation I end up having with my Shadowrun friends.

The whole second half of the cast really went downhill.

I don't see the point in debating the comments of a lazy nitwit who's too stupid/skill-less to figure out very basic Guitar Hero concepts.

I've played alongside total gaming noobs and had the majority of songs unlocked within an hour of learning the game.
