COG Writes: At a recent event at the YouTube Space in LA we were able to get some quality playtime in with FreeStyleGames and Activision's 'Guitar Hero Live'. Rest assured that the drastic changes made to the franchise are exactly what it needed.
Man. This or Rock Band. So hard!
Whoa looks like Guitar Hero is the one to get
Just when I was getting comfortable with not having to deal with these games...
I like the fact that they're doing something different. Not that I won't play Rock Band but it is pretty much the same old thing.
Sorry, but I'll stick with Rock Band for my "fun play" and Rocksmith for when I actually want to learn real stuff. I don't like how Rock Band and Guitar Hero are no longer compatible with each others' guitars (thanks Guitar Hero). Rock Band may still be the same, but I played it at PAX and I enjoyed the new solo controls. On top of that, being able to play it with multiple people and having instrument options along with a vast library of new and old songs (over 1500) takes the cake in my book.
My RB library is huge too so I'm definitely still interested but the idea of GHTV constantly expanding with new songs for free is pretty cool. I've got room for both in my gaming room!
I do too. I plan on waiting on both, jut to see how things play out, but I hope they both do good.
Rock Band's tour mode and improv solos look fun to me. Combine that with the hundreds of songs I already own, and I don't know if I'll have time to play GH, too.
sorry, but unless i can own the songs i buy on guitar hero..then im not buying that game. that always online crap needs to go. that is why im getting RB4. every song i own is mine as long as psn is still on. streaming song to me i don't think will work 100% of the time and that's a problem to me..
I'm about having fun , not pretending i'm playing so some innovative new concept . And my idea of fun with a rock music and instruments isnt staged live concerts reminiscent of the days of the Mega CD and fmv games , and even less just playing the game to music videos . I'm not insulting GH , i'm sure some will actually manage to have fun with that concept , and then cheers to them . I just dont find it appealing . "When you’re playing other songs through GHTV your backdrop is the official music video too and I’ve got to say that I much prefer it to a cartoony band." And i prefer the exact opposite , to play a cartoony band i created that actually reflect bits of me and my friends , than some exclusive backstage fmv from known groups , or their music videos . As silly as it sounds it kills the immersion for me I'm invested in rock band , wich still drop it's own new ideas , and ones that are more pertinent imo to playing music games like the free style mode . And then there is the library . It's rather easy for activision and Guitar Hero to just drop everything on its head and change everything ... they never really built a compatibility legacy or solid library of dlcs . They merely started that late, as a way to counter what RB built with all three games . Finally RB4 seems to have a fun campaign band mode going on You get it i'm picking Rock Band 4 easily out of the two
