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.
We all remember the famous “geeks and otaku” comment from Nintendo regarding the types of people that wanted additional storage for the Wii. Well Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime recently shared his thoughts on the matter.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
If you've been looking for more cheap games to download for your Xbox 360, you'll be getting plenty. Starting this holiday season you'll be able begin purchasing homebrew games from the XNA Code Creators Club. Microsoft has finally revealed the details on how this system will work.
If you've thought about purchasing a GameCube, Wavebird or Wii Classic controller sometime in the future, you might want to go ahead and grab one now. Nintendo has just lost a case that may very well see these controllers taken off the market.
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.
