Remember back when we told you about Guitar Hero III Mobile? Well it actually came out on Verizon phones a while back, and we've been waiting to hear that it's moved on to other providers. Today AT&T has finally had the opportunity to bring the franchise to their mobile phones.
The game will launch on roughly 30 phones, which include the V3 RAZR and Sony Ericcson 810, with more to follow in the near future.
You may remember that the next title in the Guitar Hero franchise won't be the same old song and dance, as it's centered around the awesome stylings of Aerosmith. While we've still got a little while to wait for the game to hit stores, you can already pre-order it.
Remember last week when I mentioned that Activision was having horrible turnaround time with the Guitar Hero III: Legends of rock discs for the Wii? Well apparently the turnaround time was so bad that they are adding a refund to the list of solutions for the sound issues found with the original discs.
I tend to keep up on rumors involving the Guitar Hero franchise, so this latest announcement isn't exactly a shock to me, though it may be the first you've heard of it. Activision has announced the release of the first Guitar Hero game to focus on the career of a single band: Aerosmith.
When you're playing a game like Guitar Hero, one of the most important features is the sound. If the audio sucks coming out, it will interfere with your gameplay, as it is centered solely around making music. Well when Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock came out for the Wii, people noticed that it only played sound in mono, which really sucks. Finally Activision has setup a replacement program so that you can get a new disc that has stereo sound.
I've been rocking out on a plastic guitar for a while now; too long some would say. I finally decided a couple months ago that I would finally get myself a real guitar and learn to play some of the songs I've been playing for so long. While I've been spending plenty of time lately learning chords and building up calluses on my fingers, I've been thinking about how much fun it was when I first learned to play on Guitar Hero, and how boring it is learning the real guitar. I know my hard work will pay off eventually, but I have something of a short attention span. Guitar Rising is a new game (if you can call it that) that is exactly what I've been looking for. Hit the jump for an awesome video.
Big news from the interwebs folks, according to a press release from some band in the UK, Guitar Hero IV is probably coming out this year! I'm sure that just completely blew your mind, as no one expected them to release a Guitar Hero game every year. Actually last spring Red Octane did in fact state that they intended to do just that.
One of my favorite parts about Guitar Hero is when I'm rocking out, then suddenly bringing the neck up to activate star power. When it's timed right, especially during co-op, it really cranks things up to 11. Unfortunately on some songs (ahem, Jordan) timing must be absolutely precise, and during those most difficult of tracks it becomes even harder to trigger your star power. Thankfully there's a new pedal out there that can make things go a little more smoothly.
With everyone away at CES, someone has to hold down the fort and cover the more underground creations that likely will never make their way to the large conventions. This Les Paul mod is definitely one of a kind and unique enough for me to check my bank account and sigh with defeat.
I have been looking for months for a guitar strap to go with my collection of Guitar Hero and Rock Band guitars. Unfortunately I always look for something completely off the wall and with a bit of geeky influence, which means it's doubtful I'll find one at the local music store. However, my search is finally over, this 8-Bit Guitar Strap is just the thing.
