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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
While I've been a little worried about having a Guitar Hero expansion that focuses on a single band, I am looking forward to the Aerosmith game. I love me some classic rock, and there are plenty of good tracks to choose from. Speaking of tracks, we finally have access to the entire set list for the game. Hit the jump and check it out.
It's no big secret that the Nintendo Wii isn't quite the powerhouse that the PS3 or even Xbox 360 is. For this reason we tend to see games with less content present on the Wii. Such has been the case with Guitar Hero III and even Rock Band. So we should expect nothing less from Guitar Hero World Tour, right?
