Rumor – Full Guitar Hero IV setlist leaked

Rumor – Full Guitar Hero IV setlist leaked

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.

Guitar Hero DLC – Virtuoso Pack

Guitar Hero DLC – Virtuoso Pack

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.

Jimi Hendrix definitely ranks very high on my list of favorite guitarists. Tunes like Purple Haze and All Along the Watchtower have been on my list of songs I'd hoped would show up in Rock Band or Guitar Hero. Activision has announced that at least one of those tracks will be showing up in GH IV.

SlashGear Week in Review – July 20th

SlashGear Week in Review – July 20th

The budget ultraportable trend showed no signs of slowing this week, as Acer's Aspire One hit US shelves priced from $379.  Meanwhile, sources close to Dell's suppliers tipped the company's upcoming 'E' netbook as carrying a mere $299 price tag, and perhaps even landing as early as next month.

As for grown-up notebooks, Intel finally made the Centrino 2 platform official, and with it the promise of not only faster processors but native draft-N WiFi support and longer battery life.  In fact this week the company had plenty to be pleased about, as they soundly thrashed arch-rival AMD with their Q2 2008 financial performance.

Guitar Hero: World Tour screenshots show off new UI

Guitar Hero: World Tour screenshots show off new UI

With Guitar Hero: World Tour featuring four instruments, one has to wonder just how similar the UI is going to be to that other game with four instruments. Well Activision has released a few screenshots of their upcoming title, and I must say, it does look rather familiar.

Activision confirms compatibility with Rock Band instruments in Guitar Hero: World Tour

Activision confirms compatibility with Rock Band instruments in Guitar Hero: World Tour

I have to admit that I've been pretty unhappy with Activision over the whole guitar incompatibility issue. Sure, I rock out on my 360 so I haven't had any issues, however, one of my best friends is more of a PS3 guy. He's only dropped the cash for a single Guitar Hero controller, however, his Rock Band Strat sits there begging to be used. Well it seems that this won't be such an issue for the next GH title.

Guitar Hero: On Tour gets a sequel this Fall

Guitar Hero: On Tour gets a sequel this Fall

I'm all for having sequels for popular games, I really am. However, there's a point when I wonder how soon is too soon, and how many is too many. Take Guitar Hero: On Tour for example. I didn't particularly care for the game or its controller, however, the game sold rather well, which might make one think they would start putting out DS versions of their series out on a semi-regular basis. I just didn't expect them to have one geared up and ready to be released in a mere matter of months.

Metallica to release Death Magnetic album as DLC for GH III, IV

Metallica to release Death Magnetic album as DLC for GH III, IV

I have to admit that my love for Metallica has been waning over the past several years. Not only has their music not been as great, but ever since they started promoting the suing of fans for downloading music, I've just not been as excited by their music. One place that I still enjoy hearing it is in both Guitar Hero and Rock Band.  Well it looks like I might actually purchase their latest album, this time for Guitar Hero, marking the first time I've cared to obtain an entire Metallica album in a decade or so.

Top Gun Anthem to be released for Guitar Hero III

How many of you have seen the movie Top Gun? Now, of those people, how many of you had aspirations of one day flying your own F-14 Tomcat? If you answered yes to the first question but no to the second, you're lying. Everyone wanted to fly a jet after that movie. That, and buy a motorcycle. Well since most of us didn't actually live out that dream, we'll just have to settle for downloading the movie's theme song on Guitar Hero III.

Activision has decided to come out with a set of dolls action figures to go with their long line of games. They teamed up with McFarlane toys and made these rock stars that all seem to be sporting extremely tiny legs.

SlashGear Review – Guitar Hero On Tour

SlashGear Review – Guitar Hero On Tour

I've been on the fence about Guitar Hero On Tour ever since it was first announced. I mean, just how much fun would Guitar Hero be without the guitar? Well I've had about a week to play with it, so I figured it was time for me to share my thoughts.
