Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

So, Guitar Hero. The third one. lots of people bought it. I don't think I need to elaborate on the game, because, come on. It's guitar hero. You know what that is.

• Join our tour group, Wang Camaro!

We will build a wing-wong of epic proportions. Track your in-game progress, compare scores and join tournaments with the rest of the Penny Arcadians on guitarhero.com. Go to the Guitar Hero 3 community site, register, link your account to your console and join up our tour group, Wang Camaro. Note: Neversoft and RO apparently thought GH3 was going to be a niche, underground title, because the sheer mass of users has broken their site. If you get an "invalid slot token" error when trying to link your account, just try again in a few hours.

Also, Wii owners can hit up our official Wii Friend Code database by clicking here.

ALSO:
Q: My Les Paul is dropping notes! Whatever will I do?

A:Get an index card. Put it in between the neck and the body so it won't move it around as much. Then, push it all the way down, and tape it into place. I used electricians tape because it's the same color as the guitar.
ADDENDUM: THIS DOESN"T FUCKING WORK GOD DAMN IT ALL TO HELL

Oh hey whats this

Man, this OP just keeps on getting bigger, like a happy (catholic) family.

E3 CRAP: I heard that Death Magnetic would be a full album download, for what game I don't know, and something about Van Halen. My stream crapped out, don't yell at me. SO ANYWAY it looks like nobody really cares

People should care about this, though. The full setlist. actually, that's a lie. It's not really good or bad. Just meh.
Spoiler:

Also no there is no Guitar Hero: Christian rock edition. WT is about fighting the devil, though, so that's cool. Or not.

So there you go. Whine about Raining Blood and/or the Devil or whatever it is you were doing in the last thread.

    Holy shit. The thread title isn't kidding. To activate star power you have to yell rock out and press a face button? Whoever thought that would be a good idea should be slapped.

    You talking about the fact that it has no power indicator on it?

    But it does. In one of the close-up shots you can see the power indicator clearly - and it is red.

    You may either:

    B: Push a button
    It gives you a choice so you can look like slightly LESS of an idiot while playing on the subway. :D

    I'm going to have to say that it doesn't look like it will work on the original DS. The GBA slot is shorter on the Lite, and the attachment slides into it completely to connect up, so it wouldn't connect or slide on properly on the original DS. The fact that they haven't advertised this makes me wonder if there will be a bunch of people returning the game when they find out it doesn't fit.
    I see lots of people asking in forums if it fits or not, and no official responses from Activision or reviewers.

    Honestly, if you're still using an original DS, do yourself a favor and get a DS Lite.

    I don't see the non-original DS factor to be much of a problem. The demographic that is going to buy this mostly didn't jump on the DS bandwagon until the Lite.

    Yeah, seriously, if you already have a system that works for every other game, you should totally go drop $130 on new one.

    IGN's latest hands on preview vid shows that the game also includes an adapter for original DSii.

The game never really stuck with me, and I ended up trading it in for about what I paid for it, but if anyone's in the mood for more action it might be worth picking up.

    I think I'll still probably pick up on tour at some point. Not a really big GH guy, but I doubt they will be making rock band for DS BUT HOW AWESOME WOULD THAT BE M RITE?

    It should, seeing how '80s is essentially GH2.5 and the Les Paul works fine in GH2. But I haven't tried it myself; again, I ended up trading in the disc.

    While it took some doing, I'm starting to regain my old form on GHIII.

    I still haven't set any new high scores yet, but I'm at least back to 5 starring everything I used to be able to.

    Also, got a chance to go through the Dropkick Murphy's pack, and they're pretty fun. I'm going to work this weekend on getting a good run through (F)lannigan's Hall to get the 500,000 achievement.

    Yes. A thousand times yes.

    I'm getting better against Lou on Hard, but I'm always destroyed when he activates Double Notes prior to a large HOPO section. I don't think there's anything that can be honestly done about something like that. <img class=" title=":lol:" class="bbcode_smiley" /> So instead I'm getting further in the Expert career, and soon I'll pass "Welcome to the Jungle". Then I just learn the trick to beating Lou on Expert and probably by that point I'll be able to take on Lou on Hard.

    Why is there no mention of a PC release? D: Please let that be an oversight. Though a tiny market compared to the consoles, it hurt bad enough to not get Rock Band.

    There's one thing I still want to know about Guitar Hero: On Tour, and that's how Hard and Expert look. I've got no doubt that by increasing the speed of the incoming notes, adding more notes, and putting far more HOPO sections in will increase difficulty, but I still can't help but wonder just how it's going to look. I suppose YouTube will help me out after a certain point, but I'm impatient and would like to know now.

    Oh my God.

    Oh my God.

    At this point, it's getting harder and harder even for me to really anticipate this game.

    I like the peripheral, and I like the control scheme.

    What I don't like: the track list that we know of so far (and the likely ~25 total songs), the idiotic gimmicks like blowing out fire, and most of all I'm skeptical that the DS game will be at all even remotely challenging to play.


    The third issue I have? About it being not difficult at all? I'm not basing that conclusion on the fact that it only has 4 fret buttons; it's quite easy to make an extremely challenging song with only 4 frets. The reason I suspect that it'll be overly easy is because ever since the game was announced, they've been marketing it for some kind of mythical, overly casual, overly pop-music-centric whatever type of gamer.. as if Guitar Hero weren't already popular by casual gamers as it is... I'm afraid that they'll go about the note charts with the same attitude that they've taken towards the track list and just make it really watered down.


    Besides the fact that there are some song overlaps, I just wouldn't get much out of the game if it's going to be relatively easy.





    So yeah. I may not end up getting the thing if it only has 25 tracks, several repeats from GH3, and is too easy.




    Guitar Hero Aerosmith? I'm a whore and I'll probably get the game. Just hope they stick to their guns about Expert being tough as it is.
