Amongst the Ruins
Never miss a photo op!

That's right, RockBand fans, Amongst the Ruins is back after taking a short hiatus due to the holidays and other scheduling conflicts.  We got together tonight (via the magic that is Xbox Live) and performed well.  It was almost as if there had been no break at all!

Before I let you take a peek at tonight's setlist, let me introduce you to the band:

Screechin' and screamin': Syrana (pictured above, front ‘n center)

Wieldin' the almighty axe: Deekow (on the right, wearin' a cape like nobody's business)

Crashin' and thrashin': Sideshow (to the left… in drag?)

The Setlist

Godsmack – “I Stand Alone”

Nine Inch Nails – “Capitol G”

Offspring – “Low Self-Esteem”

Soundgarden – “Spoonman”

Ratt – “Round ‘n Round”

Coheed and Cambria – “Welcome Home”

Rage Against the Machine – “Testify”

Testament – “Souls of Black”

Lacuna Coil – “Closer”

As I said before, we had a great night.  Everyone stuck with hard for the most part because we like to have some challenge, but enjoy ourselves.  Although, I decided to up the ante to expert vocals on “Round ‘n Round” and “Welcome Home,” receiving 96% and 95% respectively!  /cheer

One more for the road...

Now… if we could just find a bassist, we'd be complete!

We are a family of gamers. Mom (Darcy/Syrana) and Dad (Brian/Sideshow) have been gaming for as long as they can remember back when you only had a joystick to use and saved your games to cassette tapes.

They've been gaming together since they met in 2002. Sometime after 2006, they both started playing World of Warcraft and did that for many years. They started this blog, originally called Sideshow & Syrana which has now transitioned to the new Stay-At-Home Gamers site, while keeping all of the original content.

Starting in 2010, two more gamers came along (now known as Princess Boo and Mr. X) and they are now old enough where they both enjoy playing games and watching others play games. They are both excited to have others to watch them play their favorite games. Come along with us and let's enjoy these games together!
