Guitar Hero DLC – Dragonforce three-pack

Guitar Hero DLC – Dragonforce three-pack

I must say that I'm impressed by Activision. They have announced yet another track pack for Guitar Hero III. Granted, it won't be out until next month, but it's definitely good to see that they haven't given up on DLC. So what could possibly follow up the Virtuoso Pack? Apparently only a trio of Dragonforce tracks.

Capcom goes retro with Mega Man 9

Capcom goes retro with Mega Man 9

Back in the NES days I loved to play Mega Man. However, much like Sonic the Hedgehog, as the games continued over the years, I started enjoying them less and less. It's been a few years since I've even touched a Mega Man game (aside from replaying the original last year), but I have to say that I'm excited about what Capcom is doing with Mega Man 9.

Rumor – Full Guitar Hero IV setlist leaked

Rumor – Full Guitar Hero IV setlist leaked

It's tradition that with every Guitar Hero game, there are rumors regarding “leaked” setlists that will show up from all over. I do believe that we have our first such list, which of course comes from someone with absolutely no explanation as to how they came upon it. Hit the jump for the entire list.

Microsoft makes Games for Windows Live a free service

Microsoft makes Games for Windows Live a free service

When Microsoft released their Games for Windows Live service, it wasn't exactly well-received. It definitely wasn't nearly as popular as the Live service for the Xbox 360. As such, Microsoft officially announced that the service (only the Windows version) will now be completely free to use.

NZXT announces the Guardian 921 Gaming Chassis

NZXT announces the Guardian 921 Gaming Chassis

I've always thought of a person's PC case as something of form of self-expression. Often you can find a bit out about the person, and the PC simply by looking at their case. If a person isn't big into gaming or performance, they will generally have a stock case, or a plain ATX chassis. PC gamers will generally go for a case with plenty of cooling, and a specific look that suits them. The new Guardian 921 from NZXT definitely lets everyone know that you're a gamer.

The chassis looks sleek with just the right amount of curves, angles and blue lighting effects to look awesome, without overdoing it. It is crafted from .88mm/1.00mm steel and has a spacious interior for installing a variety of drives and larger video cards. You'll also find a slew of peripheral connectors which always come in handy. You'll be able to monitor your system temperature with three different temp probes, while three large 120mm fans keep things cool and quiet.

Guitar Hero DLC – Virtuoso Pack

Guitar Hero DLC – Virtuoso Pack

With Guitar Hero: World Tour coming later this year, I'd all but given up on having much more DLC for GH III. Sure, we know about the new Metallica album that's coming, but that's probably it, right? Nope, Activision is still churning out new tracks (albeit slowly) for their current game. Hit the jump for the list of tracks in the upcoming Virtuoso Pack.

E3 will return in 2009

This year's E3 was nothing short of pathetic in comparison to the previous years. This has left many analysts and influential industry leaders wondering whether or not the show should, or even will continue. As it turns out, the ESA is determined to give it at least one more go. Check out the official quote from the ESA.
