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.
If I were to sit down and compile a list of some of my favorite guitarists of all time, you can bet your ass that Ted Nugent would be on it. I've actually been a bit disappointed that I can't rock out to his stylings on Guitar Hero or Rock Band. However, once Guitar Hero IV hits stores, that's all going to change.
We've heard a few fleeting rumors about the addition of new instruments to the Guitar Hero series, and now according to the latest issue of Game Informer, those rumors are true.
Whenever a new Guitar Hero game is poised to be released, you star hearing rumors about different bands and tracks that might be included in the game. Eventually we finally get some confirmed tracks, followed by a complete set list. Well with Guitar Hero: On Tour, we've arrived at the stage where we're given a healthy list of tracks to be included. Hit the jump to see which 15 songs have been officially announced.
When Rock Band was announced last year, the first thing that drew everyone in was the fact that not only could you rock out to your favorite tunes with a guitar, but you'd also have drums and a mic as well. According to a recent interview with Activision CEO Bobby Kotick, they are planning to do the same thing for Guitar Hero IV.
It won't be long before June is here and we're all rocking out to Guitar Hero Aerosmith. If you're as eager as I am to get your hands on the game, you'll probably want to pre-order it so you'll be assured that you can pick it up on launch day. We have the official info on what extras you can expect to get for doing just that, as well as the official pricing.
