Soon to be guitar heros rival rock band twenty eight videos from IGN
im not a fan of GH or RB but i heard GH is much better
Well then you heard wrong, Guitar Hero 3's note charts are garbage and the fun that the series had is gone. Unless of course your one of the 1-2% of the super Guitar Hero 1337, that the game was catered to. While I am not a super badass at GH I did beat Expert and 5*'d about 50-60% of Expert....And on Guitar Hero 3 I struggled severly in the 8th tier on Hard and Raining Blood was 0 fun and more of a chore. While I liked trying to beat Jordan, I don't like having a no-fun shut down song in the main set-list.
I played the Rock Band demo at Wal-Mart and it only had the Guitar and Drums. The background animation looks amazing and the game as a whole is the true successor to GH2. The drums are ridiculous fun and the Guitar parts aren't about bending your pinky around your wrist and melting off fingers but WAY more about accuracy and a feel that you are playing a song and not playing a package of Skittles.
If you want streaming triples and Zig-Zag solos buy Guitar Hero 3. If you want an accurate note chart buy Rock Band. Plus if you have "Real" friends buy Rock Band. If you always play alone Rock Band isn't meant for you.
Plus my favorite quote is from Harmonix Co-founder Eran Egozy. He said, "Harmonix encourages its employees to play music because otherwise they would "just be fakers." He adds, "It's the combination of us being musicians and videogame makers that really makes us have that special quality. It's kind of pervasive throughout the entire company. We wouldn't bother trying to make skateboarding games." BURNED!!
Anyways for me, this is the greatest party game of all time. Since playing the demo I can't even look at Guitar Hero 3 without disgust! I have a kegger planned for the weekend after this drops. It will be pure magic to have 4 people at a time playing this thing. Although everyone will fight over the drums. Plus I already have the entire band taken care of with my Wife, Sister and a buddy of mine all of us will be playing this all of the time.
GOTY!! (For me at least,lol)
Damn, nice post. I'd definitely agree with you that RB is going to be more about "fun" and not twisting your fingers trying to play some impossible solo.
It like like more real...and it is like a real band...and you get all the instruments, drums, guitar, and mic...for $169...and the are wireless for the guitar on the PS3....
I am so getting rock band..if the reviews are good....
Here is the link to the Rock Band Preview....this game is about 1000 times better than GHIII...
It's the little things like having Timmy & the lords of the Underworld as a bonus track that make this game a Can't Miss BIG TIME MOTHAFUNKING WIN!
....While Guitar Hero 3 = FAIL
After playing the Rock Band demo at Wal-Mart this is set in stone. Hell I thought Guitar Hero had the best Set list between the 2 but then I played the demo and every song in the Rock Band list was fun as hell to play. Harmonix is clearly superior when it comes to these music games and you can tell by just how much fun this game is to play.
If anyone reading this is still on the fence about this game, let me assure you...I have seen the top of the mountains my friends and it is glorious and full of fun, and many nights of druken fun/hilarity.
I really want this game...I mean sooo much, but the price tag is a bit steep.
I dont believe Timmy and the Lords of the Underworld is on there, That is so F***in cool.
aiphanes thanks 4 agree with my news gd on u bro
Hell yeah bro!
Rock Band wins for sure.
i have a feeling that gh3 will be the last gh game i buy. gh1 and 2 i played just about everyday until the next game was released but gh3 just came out and i'm bored w/ it already. the songs(for the most part)suck. and the first DLC for gh3 is Foo Fighters and Velvet Reveler, lame. Rock Band has a great track list straight out of the box.
when i first heard mtv was involved w/ the game i thought "wow, never mind. this game is going to blow" but think about all the music mtv has the rights for. the amount of DLC RB could have is mind blowing. and not just sh!tty metal like slayer, iron maiden, lucina coil, slipknot and all the other bullsh!t thats on gh3. instead, real music. songs i would enjoy listen too while playing the game.
november 20th can't get here fast enough.
iron maidans not ****
iron maidans not **** r they ppl i added u on psn aiphanes
