Guitar Hero 4 Sounds… Kinda Desperate

GameInformer magazine apparently has a scoop in their print edition on what’s going on with the (strangely imminent) Guitar Hero IV. Guess what? They’ve decided that a whole band of instruments is a great idea!
That means you will see drum and microphone peripherals for GH4, just like Rock Band. And considering Activision’s cockpunchingly-retarded stance on [...]

Guitar Hero 3 Burnable Demo for X360 – Go Get It

The disc image is available here (link > XBL Guide Forum). It’s a 5-song demo, originally shipping as a bonus disc with the Xbox 360 version of Tony Hawk’s Proving Ground. No copy protection, it would seem. Was this intentional? Why not just put it on Live?
Anyways, that demo will score you:

“Hit Me With Your [...]

No Faming For Me

This was as close as I got:

I know some of you wondered if I came to Toronto just for this thing: I didn’t. But I did walk past it.

Some of these were mysteriously bumped from last week, so there’s a few repeats here. You’re not stroking out. It’ll all be ok.
NASCAR 08 (Xbox 360, PS3, PS2)
Only the most cynical of minds* would consider it a fine and worthwhile idea to convince the gaming public that it wants a NASCAR videogame. You too [...]

HUD: Week of July 16-20

The month that marked the life of Julius Caesar is now the month of football. What happened.
NCAA Football 08 (Xbox 360, PS3)
This is the EA one. I also believe that this is the title that runs on 60 FPS on the 360, and only 30 FPS on the PS3. (Can you say, “third-string programmers?” Then [...]

The Official Les Paul Non-Guitar for Guitar Hero III

Feast your eyes on the new plastic axe. I like it.
This is the Xbox 360 version, and apparently the very first officially blessed 3rd party wireless product. Nice of Microsoft to allow that. (Idjits.) It has a removable faceplate which will immediately create a tiny cottage industry unto itself. The neck is removable as well, [...]
