    Well, since the sets are going chronologically, we've got approximately 47 bazillion power ballads that sound exactly the same to go.

    Oh, they're going chronologically? I wasn't aware of that, so yeah, I guess there's a few more songs to go through. I don't know enough about Aerosmith to have noticed that.

    So despite having the game since it first came out, yesterday I finally linked up my gamertag to the guitarhero website and joined wang camaro. I think my best ranking is in Story in my life, which I'm not really proud of, as that song is ridicuously easy to get over 300k. I hate that in the few contests and things I participated in, half the people pick it.

    But anyways, I'm also finally trying some extra songs. Which are the good ones and which ones are the ones I should stear clear off? I'm not a fan of the Knight of Cydonia type of song, which just the same pattern of notes repeated ad naseum(hated one of the Dropkick murphy's song for that very reason) much prefer songs with lots of ho/po.

    I like the No Doubt pack and the Classic Rock pack (Peace of Mind is especially good). The Foo Fighters and Velvet Revolver packs are not terrible, but they suffer from "realistic" hammer-ons. For singles, Ernten Was Wir Saen is pretty good.

    If "Pandora" is back like "Judy Nails" and "Casey Lynch" came back for GH3, they might as well come up with a new name. Because just like those two weren't even the same fucking character for 3, that doesn't look anything like Pandora.

    Seriously, only Axel, Johnny, and Lars resembled their GH2 versions, and that's because they didn't change them at all.

    I finally beat the damn game on Expert. Raining Blood and Lou.

    Funny enough: I did not need star power to get through Mosh 1. I had, like, a 30% success rate on it... but I got through without the star power, saving it for the very end (because I had failed three times at 90-91%). I didn't actually even have star power during Mosh 1 that time, I missed one of the first two (always one), and picked up star power later (the series of 3-chords).

    Then I beat Lou. A tip: you CAN still fail during Finish Him, and your rock meter starts where it was when the main section stops. So, going into that one mis-strum away from death... not good. Got it the second time (which would've been the third or fourth time I got a whammy as the first powerup) though.

    My hand was hurting like hell. Then I decided to play along with Dragonforce for the credits.

    I think my hand's dead, now.

    I don't know about that. I think Johnny went from an early 20s punk to Iggy Pop with spikes.

    Are they not doing character creation? Or do they have the pre-set characters in addition to the created characters?

    'Cause if they do created ones, pre-set characters kind of become a dull novelty. I mean, in the first couple Tony Hawk games, you'd always wanna be Tony Hawk or Bob Burnquist or whatever, but once character creation came along, did anybody really want to be them anymore?

    They are. From the write-up it seems to indicate that it was essentially modifying pre-made avatars. Which is basically what the THPS creator is/was.

    I'd be happy enough just selecting Judy Nails and then making slight alterations if i didn't like something about it. I've found that character creation is overblown as a feature anyway. At least when there are too many options presented. The kind of overwhelming choices that are presented when you spend just as much time tweaking the distance between the eyes as playing the game.

    Rock Band does it pretty much how I like it. There could be a few extra choices, but I don't want to waste time molding my avatar's face.

    I maintain that the main function of the character creator will be to forge monstrous parodies of guitarists that can only be considered human by the most tenuous standards.

    I think the only on-disc song that it is even possible on is Through the Fire and Flames, and frankly, my 375k on that song says that that is not possible for me. :P

    Q: How many GH games can Activision release in one year?
    A: So far, four

    http://www.gamespot.com/news/6191921.html
    Earlier this year, Activision unveiled Guitar Hero: Aerosmith, the first installment in its billion-dollar rhythm series based entirely on a band. No sooner had the publisher announced the deal than speculation began to spread about what the second band-based Guitar Hero game would be. Along with Van Halen, the most mentioned group was Metallica, the legendary San Francisco Bay Area heavy-metal quartet.

    Time to ride the royalty lightning!

    Now, talk of Guitar Hero: Metallica is no longer a case of wishful thinking or idle speculation--it's fact. When sifting through an SEC filing of Activision's over the weekend, Wedbush Morgan Securities analyst Edward Woo--associate of the highly visible Michael Pachter--uncovered a gem in the section where the Santa Monica, California-based publisher discussed its upcoming game slate.

    "In fiscal 2009, we plan to publish Guitar Hero: On Tour for the NDS; Guitar Hero: Aerosmith, Guitar Hero: Metallica, and Guitar Hero IV across multiple platforms," the company said in its report. Activision's fiscal year ends on March 31, 2009, which means that the game will likely follow the holiday release of Guitar Hero: World Tour (nee Guitar Hero 4).

    Guitar Hero: Metallica will be the first time a game based on the multiplatinum-selling band--which has become only slightly less famous for its antipiracy efforts as its musical achievements--has made it to retail. However, it is the second such game to be announced. In 2003, Vivendi Games--which will soon merge with Activision--struck a deal to create a vehicular combat game inspired by Metallica's music. Unconfirmed reports stated that the project had been quietly canceled in 2005.

    Hmm. So far Metallica's done quite well playing both Guitar Hero and Rock Band against each other; I was convinced they were quite content with Rock Band, as their DLC pack was one of the highest-bought ones, but a full version of GH in their name would probably do even better. So much for Master of Puppets as a download RB album. :(

    I admit I'm actually really interested, especially if the tracklist ends up golden and people who pick up Aerosmith and GHIV have better impressions of the notecharts.

    EDIT: But on the other hand, does this mean GH Metallica is going to be a "Guitar Hero game" (as in two-player guitar and rhythm/bass) or "Guitar Hero World Tour game" (as in four instruments)? And if it's only a two-player affair, what will GH World Tour users do with all their instruments?

    Interesting. I may actually buy that.

    RB has been teasing Metallica fans for too long with no newer (puppets ->) album songs being released for a while. Puppets is when a lot people I know really started to get into it, and of those who play RB, it's what they're all waiting for.

    Unless Metallica signed an exclusivity agreement (doubtful) they could be working with HMX to release another pack of songs before this game comes out, or the same day, or whatever.

    Well, Guitar Hero Metallica doesn't necessarily mean we won't see them in Rock Band again, but it certainly is possible.

    Still, oy. Way to simultaneously oversaturate the market and limit your audience. I want variety in my music games, dammit.

    I can't see Metallica going exclusive. That DLC pack probably made a lot of money.

    While I'll be, at very most, renting GH: Aerosmith, I think a GH: Metallica may just be awesome enough to get a sale from me. It does really depend specifically on which songs they choose, but I'm sure it could be freaking awesome.

    That explains the comment from Lars in an interview I read recently - he was asked GH or Rock Band, and without elaborating just said "Guitar Hero." I thought it was odd, seeing as how he's the drummer and GH doesn't have drums, but now I get it, he was just answering with the name of who gave him a check last.

    It could be that, just as GH:A is a spin-off of Guitar Hero III, GH:Metallica could be based off of World Tour.

    Still, four fucking games in less than a year? Give me a break. Literally.

    If GH:Metallica doesn't have drums or vocals, I wouldn't be surprised if we all of a sudden start seeing Drum/Vocal Hero games.

    It's cool that we're getting a Metallica focused game, but at the same time.... another damn Guitar Hero game? So soon after GHWT?

    Activision sure wasn't kidding when they said they wanted at least 30+ SKUs for GH for next year.

    At this rate, not only will they kill the franchise, they might end up killing the genre entirely.

    I joked about it with a friend when I said Activision was all like "oh fuck Rock Band beat us to it...oh yeah?! We'll take the whole genre down with us!"

    Seeing this news about four GH games in one year, three of them mostly cross-platform...I just don't know what to think about this franchise anymore. Guitar Hero got me. It got me to drive home after work everyday and rock out until midnight. Then Rock Band did it (and still does depending on who is over). Not knocking Aerosmith or Metallica, but I don't think they need to have an entire game based around them.

    And yeah, how is GH:Metallica going to work with the dead bassist and the Napster-PR fiasco? :P
