Rock Band gets someone evicted

Well, being noisy does.

Harmonix may be facing complaints about problems with the quality of Rock Band's initial guitar peripherals and the PS3 version not working with Guitar Hero accessories, but they can't really be blamed for this one: one lucky Rock Band forumite claims he's being playing the game so much he's actually getting evicted.

"We technically didn't get evicted...yet. But we have ten days to get out before we do get evicted," 'luminary_pants' explains in a post (spotted on Kotaku) proudly displaying a "10 Day Compliance Notice". "Residents of the Grand Oaks Apartment Home community have complained of loud noise disturbances before and after the hours of 10:00pm," it says.

Although the notice claims that it is "not an eviction notice" (and indeed claims they can get out of it by simply not being obnoxiously loud), Mr Pants later claims he has until 1st December to bugger off. "You have some asshole neighbours," a note of sympathy from 'SoberScott' reads. "My suggestion: Crank it to 11 for the next 10 days."

Of course, dobbing in your neighbours for being loud is a bit wimpy. What we suggest is going upstairs in your dressing gown at 2am, knocking on the door and then shouting "SHUT THE **** UP OR I'LL BURN YOU ALL ALIVE". There's no way out of my building if your front door's on fire, I reckon. Think about that, "Ben".
