Charlie Daniels does not approve of Guitar Hero’s portrayal of his music

When I first heard The Devil Went Down to Georgia for Guitar Hero III, I was quite surprised. The song sounded almost nothing like the original Charlie Danials version which I'd grown up hearing. (Living in the Midwest you hear this song at every single high school dance, no joke) The new version grew on me, and I began to enjoy it, however, one person that's never going to like it is Charlie Daniels.

Activision settles lawsuit for Wii version of Guitar Hero III

Activision settles lawsuit for Wii version of Guitar Hero III

If you'll all remember, Activision released the Wii version of Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock with a minor flaw. Well, releasing a game that depends greatly on audio with only the ability to output in mono is more than a small flaw, but they've made up for it, so who's counting? Anywho, there was a class action lawsuit regarding this matter, and it has finally been settled.

A gentleman by the name of Samuel Livingston filed the suit seeking "actual damages, individual restitution, equitable relief, civil penalties, costs and expenses of litigation, including attorney's fees, and all further relief available." I don't think the suit went exactly as he planned.

Alright it's official, Colorware has to stop releasing new things that they can customize. The last time they announced that they were releasing the DS Lite I spent an hour on their site drooling over the possibilities. This time, I kept it at around a half an hour, so maybe I'm getting better at this.

Guitar Hero III Mobile coming to BlackBerry – For Those About to Rock!

Guitar Hero III Mobile coming to BlackBerry – For Those About to Rock!

Hands-on Mobile and Magmic Games are the two companies that are partnered up in an effort to bring one of the best mobile games of all time to your BlackBerry. Being a primarily business oriented device the BlackBerry has been passed up on a lot of really cool mobile games, but this is one that you can mark off the list.

Personally I am just wondering if you’ll have access to all 5 frets or if they are sticking with the three frets that previous mobile versions have offered up. When you first download the game you’ll get 15 tracks including “Cherub Rock”, “Miss Murder”, “Monsters”, “Suck My Kiss”, and “Trippin On A Hole”.

The Chain Mail Guitar Hero Strap

The Chain Mail Guitar Hero Strap

Almost all Guitar Hero or Rock Band fans typically likes to customize and make their plastic guitars their own. Be it with a guitar strap or an entire sheet of stickers and occasionally one of the custom made guitars that most of us just have drool over in pictures posted on the net. If you like the guitar strap route, nothing says hardcore rocker like chain mail.

Although this strap might not fit as well when you're doing a bit of the classic rock, it'd fit in perfect with a bit of metal. The down side is for those that like to play with groups of friends and typically pass their guitar around, the strap isn't adjustable. You have to tell the maker the measurements you prefer and he'll make it to your specification.

It is made from 16 gauge Aluminum rings, which apparently doesn't tarnish. If you would like you can get a slightly more personalized strap and have a specific color of rings put on. The strap is currently being sold for $33

Activision apologizes to Wii owners with a special faceplate

If you're a Wii owner and picked up a copy of Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock, you probably noticed that the sound output options weren't exactly up to snuff. If that's the case, you likely sent off your disc and were forced to be without your game for much longer than you'd like. Don't worry though, Activision has your back, as you'll be getting something extra special with your disc.
