Guitar Hero

Official Activision Guitar Hero 3 wireless controllers not coming until 2008

That’s pretty much it, those of you that have the PS3 or Wii versions of the game can go buy a whole other copy of the game to get a second controller. For now that’s it, and the Xbox 360 and PS2 owners are stuck without until next year.

So, there are tons of knockoff guitar controllers, there is one guitar for Guitar Hero 1, 2, and 3, and another for Rock Band, and depending on what system you have, there were some random special edition official guitars along the way. That’s pretty much it though.


Drum Bag for Rock Band drums

I am really excited about Rock Band, I have yet to be able to make it out to buy my own copy, its been busy around here, but I am patiently waiting till I get a spare moment. But for those of you who have already managed to purchase a copy, I am sure you’ve come up with a slight transportation problem when it comes to the drums, there are a lot of parts.

Well, the makers of Rock Band have your back once again, they have, for sale, a customized bag specially made to fit all the drum kit parts inside in an organized manner. Now all you need to do is get some decent sticks, a drum pad, and then work on your technique.

More fret pounding fun with Guitar Hero III

RedOctane was kind enough to send us the newest entry to their Guitar Hero franchise, Guitar Hero III. After many hours of co-op, boss battles and blisters, I can say that Guitar Hero III fills my music infused video game fix more than Dance Dance Revolution ever could.

Rumor – First DLC for Guitar Hero III leaked

Guitar Hero III has been out for just over a week now, and likely you’ve beaten all of the songs. I take that back, you’ve likely beaten all but one of the songs. If you’re lucky you’ve gotten 2-3% on Through the Fire and Flames. Don’t lie to me, that song is close to impossible to beat on expert. Anywho, thanks to some funny Xbox Live scores, we may know the first DLC songs that will be released soon.


Walmart screws Guitar Hero III buyers out of a new controller

I’m sure that by now you’re shocked that I haven’t posted my in-depth review of Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock. Unfortunately due to some shipping issues I have not yet received my copy, but you can rest assured that I’ll give you my full report once it makes its way here. Until then, here’s a little nugget of joy.

By joy I of course mean pain. If you went to your local Walmart to pick up your copy of the game, you already know what I’m talking about. Until now we’ve been informed that the Xbox 360 bundle will feature a Les Paul, and the PS2 will have a Kramer controller. However, if you went to Walmart and didn’t look closely at the box then you very likely found either an X-plorer or SG instead.


Guitar Hero Mobile – Yes, I’m serious

Guitar Hero is a great game, and I thought I’d never say that I wouldn’t want another game in the series to be made. However, I’m really wondering how much enjoyment one would be able to get from a planned upcoming Guitar Hero title.


Get your Guitar Hero fix a little early

Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock is only a few days away from release. If you just can’t wait to rock out to the new music, fear not, there are a couple of ways to satisfy your inner rocker.


Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock Weekend – Meet your maker

Are you going to be rocking out to Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock when it comes out? You know that I will. If you’re looking for a good time and the chance to win some awesome prizes, Red Octane and Microsoft are putting together an entire weekend’s worth of online rocking just for you.


Guitar Hero III’s ‘Devil Went Down to Georgia’ to be Metal

I wouldn’t call myself a Guitar Hero addict, despite what my friends and family might say. Anywho, the final track for the upcoming Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock title has been announced as The Devil Went Down to Georgia.

Now anyone that’s heard the song (who hasn’t?) is going to call bullshit, as the song is centered around fiddling, and the game is Guitar Hero, not Fiddle Hero. Fear not, the fiddle section has been converted to guitar for maximum rocking.


Target gets a special Guitar Hero 3: Legends of Rock bundle

It has the game, and two controllers. Not one, but two, that means if you keep bumming one off your friend because you are too cheap to buy the game and your own controller, you can get this bundle at a savings of about $20 and have two.

That $20 savings isn’t off of the regular package price, as this package will cost you $109.99, but that’s about $20 less than the normal one guitar/game package and a second separate guitar. Me myself and I, I bought GH2 for my 360 before I went and bought a used PS2, so I think if I buy anything GH or RB related it will have to be for that system.


Guitar Hero III Soundtrack to include bonus songs for Xbox 360 owners

It’s no surprise that I’m anxiously awaiting the release of Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock. For those that can’t wait to rock out, you can always pick up a copy of the game’s soundtrack which will hit stores on October 23, just a little less than a week before the game debuts. Those dedicated enough to pick up said CD will be rewarded with an in-game bonus.
