Yamanote Alarm Clock – Where’s that train again?

One thing I love about living where I do, is that I can either walk or drive anywhere that I need to go. I used to live in one of the Chicago burbs, so I know what it's like trying to hurry down to the train station to get somewhere on time. Over in Tokyo there are a lot of people that have to catch the train, and now there's an alarm clock that will make sure you never miss it again.

Hands-on – Guitar Hero Encore: Rocks the 80s

So Guitar Hero Encore: Rocks the 80's came out yesterday. How many of you rushed out and grabbed a copy? While I wasn't nearly as excited about this expansion as I am about Guitar Hero III and Rock Band, I couldn't resist.

The game is pretty much the same, which is to be expected. It's only an expansion after all. Surprisingly, you actually get less characters to play with than usual. Only Johnny Napalm, Judy Nails, Izzy Sparks, Pandora, Axel Steel and the Grim Ripper made it into the game. Don't expect a lot of unlockables either, you get the same guitars as Guitar Hero II with the same skins, but no extra outfits for your characters, though they're already decked out in new 80's style threads.

Video after the jump.
