Xbox 360 rockers snagged their own free track for Guitar Hero III some time ago. Well, it's finally time for PS3 gamers to have their day, and their own free track. We recently told you that there would be a free God of War track up for download in the near future, and today is that day. Hit the jump for a sneak peak video featuring the song.
I'm sure that by now you've heard plenty about Guitar Hero: On Tour, and have likely made some sort of decision as to whether or not you're going to buy it. If you're one of the people that thinks this is the game that will finally get you to purchase a DS, then youll be happy to hear that you'll be able to purchase the game bundled with a special edition DS Lite.
I'm still undecided about the whole idea of focusing a Guitar Hero game around a single band. Sure, GH: Aerosmith is going to feature other great bands too, but as much as I love Aerosmith, I think I might get tired of mostly songs by the same band. Well it seems that Activision loves the idea, because it seems that they've already got another band-themed title in the works. Perhaps you've heard of a little band called Metallica?
Man, I feel like I'm being really harsh on Guitar Hero today, but I really just can't help it. First we have the horrible video for Guitar Hero: On Tour, now we have a new one for GH: World Tour. This isn't a bad video, but some lady manages to say something to Activision CEO Robert Kotick that I think we've all had on our minds. Hit the jump for the video.
I've been up in the air about the whole Guitar Hero: On Tour since it was announced. I just haven't been able to think of a time where I'd be happy to lug around an extra accessory for my DS. If you too are on the fence, you might get some help from this official “How To Rock Out” video. Check it out after the jump.
I'm sure that by now you've seen that Activision is hoping to reach the Rock Band crowd with their upcoming Guitar Hero: World Tour. They have a few tricks up their sleeve such as dedicated cymbal pads and custom tracks, however, one of the big questions remaining is of the price. Will it be able to compete with Rock Band in terms of retail price?
I try to steer away from writing about the same subject twice in one day, but I watched the Guitar Hero World Tour video again for a good look at the drums, and I noticed something strange. Lets see if you can spot it in the picture below.
Guitar Hero has spawned a large number of mods, hacks and general tweakery, with gamers often looking to use proper instruments in place of the normal controllers. However this is the first time I've seen a Guitar Hero controller converted in the opposite direction; it now works as a MIDI guitar, compatible with any synth with the necessary port. Best of all, there's actually no damage to the controller's original functionality, so you can switch between gaming and music making to your heart's content.
