Metallica's Official Website reports a brand new trailer of Guitar Hero: Metallica. Watch it after the jump.
So is this one going to be guitar only? I have GH3 and I was thinking about getting World Tour, but if this one comes out with yet again, a new exclusive drum, guitar (probably an ESP) and what not then I would wait to get this one instead. I hope that they can give you an option to play as them in there prime. (Young and with metal hair!)
Nothing beats rock n roll from the 60's and 70's. Lynyrd Skynyrd, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, CCR. I like Metallica too though. I think they are some pretty good song writers. I also like their cover of Lynyrd Skynyrd's Tuesday's Gone. Its different but good. Speaking of Tuesday's gone, its in the game, so its definitely worth a rent at least
is sin't guitar only but it is guitar focused, you can play drums, vocal etc. but the msot fun/challenging will be the guitars
Yeh i can see how its guitar focused, lars ulrich is such a basic drummer. Would be no fun playing his stuff on expert. Too easy. Ill be getting it anyway though :)
I'm getting this for sure. Metallica is my favorite band
Hopefully they wont dump the crap new songs in the game.GH:Aerosmith had the best potential for a soundtrack but it was squandered on some of their lamest songs.
These are a few from the complete list. There pretty good but I hope that they don't add Load, Reload and St Anger songs! Keep it The Black album and below please! http://www.eurogamer.net/ar...
Nice find,Solidus.You were the misunderstood hero of the MGS series. Glad to see Mastodon and The Sword there
Why thank you Colbert. I liked your Christmas special btw. =P
I hope they include St.Anger, not the album, just the song lol
Ive been waiting for this for so long.. woo hoo!
WOw, yet another 360 exclusive!! Too bad you ps3 droids wont be getting this amazing expansion while i will be rocking out to Metallica songs exclusively on the 360!! hahaha
it isn't and exclusive retard.
I believe you are the retard here. How hard is it to use proper grammer?
how hard is it to read? | PlayStation 3 | Xbox 360 | Wii | PlayStation 2 Have a nice day.
Idiot. It's spelled "grammAr", not "grammEr". Then again, you wouldn't know irony if it slapped you in your fanboy face.
1st it's not exclusive 2nd you spelled "grammar" wrong Besides, why would someone care about Metallica these days? I remember when they didn't use to be a bunch of crybabies.
Another GH milk? C'mon already! Although this time around it's metallica :)
although it is a guitar hero milk, metallica is actually on of the bands that deserve a guitar hero game aerosmith wasn't a good fit in my opinion metallica or ac/dc would have been a much better pick for the first stand alone game, songs that are guitar driven and are known by just about everyone led zeppelin would also be a good pick but they are more in lines with aerosmith where a lot of their catalog isn't recognizable to the casual consumer and tend to be more polarizing depending on how i feel when this is released i may pick it up, it would be nice if you were able to download tracks from GH world tour online for use in this game there isnt a realistic reason why songs can't be cross compatible now, they are just trying to pull the cash from everyones pockets from every direction
you know what other bands would do really well of a full band game. system of a down Muse Foo Fighters red hot chili peppers. and to tell the truth those would more then likely sell better. why. not alot of younger people like metallica. while i enjoy them. and i know alot of poeple like them, most of those people . A dont play games. or B. wouldn't spend 30+ bucks to just play there music. -nai- *edit* and if they wanted to get some massive sales in japan, i would suggest bands like. the pillows BOA the kungtfu generation Aya Hirano -nai-
just because those are your favorite bands that doesn't mean a guitar hero game would work for them muse only sold around 15000 copies in the US first week with their live from wembley album where as metallica sold almost half a million in a short 3 day debut week and have gone platinum several times over in just a few months thats different, doesn't matter if you like a band or think they are hip, sales are what matter also marketability, a system of a down game would get a higher rating or be extremely edited, notice how guitar hero games edit out obscenities? guitar hero is a family friendly game and you aren't going to see a game from bands that have parental advisory stickers on every album also those bands aren't guitar driven, what would guitar hero be if you were strumming along to nothing but power chords the only band on your list that could maintain the game would be the chili peppers, but again they are more about bass grooves than guitars it is the right combination of factors that make guitar hero work and the fact is very few bands can carry that and the ones that can are just good rock and roll bands, classic rock bands where everyone knows their catalog niche bands like muse aren't going to sell games, metallica is going to sell A LOT of games and that is all it really comes down to
first. you brought up wimberly LIVE. its had no new music, the only perk was that it came with a dvd. so that really doesnt count now does. it, not to mention. not to mention you could cut out how many of those metallica sales, due to the fact i know that 50-60% do not play games, and if they do do not play rockband/guitarhero. if guitar hero was focused completely around guitar why did they add drums/bass/vocals at all, and add a music editor with them all in it. also tell me how system of a down is not guitar driven, same for muse, especially in matts solos. what about the foo fighters, theres alot of rythem in there yes, but keep in mind, rythem can be hard enough to. look at everlong, out of everyone that has played less then 2000 people have gotten 100%. on the song. red hot chili peppers. one song comes to mind, SNOW, that one is hard enough on RB, but imagen if GH got ahold of it. and if you say classic rock bands that everyone knows there catalog, wheres some Queen, they have some really good guitar solos, rythem and vocals. you know bohemian raphsody would sell millions alone. and last i check, the right combinations of guitar hero is dwindling, its being dropped for rockband 2 by so many hardcore fans. or even a simple we will rock you/we are the champions. also you contradict yourself by sayings its a family fun game, but we want it to be hard as heck. neither company would be sued, if they added a feature to turn censors on and off, which would be like a 10-15mg download for the new songs. and if i recall the MUSE pack outsold alot of the hi end band packs. for GH3. trust me, the metallica game is not going to sell well. just like the AC/DC one at wallmart. -nai- add to the fact all the asian bands which you did not comment on, means you dont listen to alot of music, so why would anyone trust you with this kind of stuff. -nai-
just a few things to note, if you've ever been to japan you would realize that they worship guitar players, the japanese market would flock after something ridiculously hard a track from the band you listed here and there would be enough judging by the bands you listed there you don't know anything about the actual music scene in japan but the ones popular among american kids on the internet trying to be cooler than their friend by listening to foreign band goto japan and goto a few big concerts and take note of what you see, you'd be surprised japan avoided the grunge trend of america in the 90s and it very much shows through the records they buy and honestly activision doesn't seem that concerned with japan, they never released a guitar hero game in japan until guitar hero 3(which they shipped very few of) because guitar freaks dominates all over there, guitar here plays second fiddle in japan to guitar freaks and drum mani system of a down is NOT guitar driven, it is drum driven, the guitar follows the drums because that is where their talent lies...their drummer is amazing their guitar player...not so much, Daron malakian has even said in interviews he much prefers percussion over guitar and plays with a percussive style(ie just banging out power chords) the ac/dc track pack is not a new game therefore not comparable to the metallica game, not to mention the ac/dc pack is live tracks only with nothing but ac/dc tracks also takes value from it also guitar hero world tour is outselling rockband all over the place, just because a few people you know dropped guitar hero doesn't mean the world did the download of the death magnetic album by metallica on guitar hero 3 and guitar hero world tour was one of if not the most fruitful download ever released on guitar hero, it sold millions of copies alone as for your queen argument, have you ever actually listened to queen? A night at the opera was their magnum opus but up until that point their albums are very hit an miss, a lot of people don't know any songs that aren't on a night at the opera and the contradicting myself, real players do want a challenge but guitar hero is a family/casual game...notice the beginner level on world tour? think of why that was implemented perhaps you have seen the new commercials showing a little kid playing promoting the beginner difficulty i very much guarantee the metallica game will sell a lot, and please don't pull percentages from thin air like "due to the fact i know that 50-60% do not play games" you do not know any such fact, so don't act like you do..you ahve no worldly idea of how many buyers of metallicas albums actually play guitar hero considering they have the number 2 best selling album of the neilsen era, it will sell and it will sell plenty a band without a well known catalog and that has a lower chance of selling big isn't going to warrant their own game these games are made for bands that will sell and for bands that have inspired people to play real music, the riff to enter sandman is up there with the intro to iron man, or smoke on the water system of a down, the chili peppers, muse, the foo fighters, none have reached the iconic status of bands like aerosmith, ac/dc,led zeppelin, U2, black sabbath and now something rather important, you don't need to send me PMs to argue with me, i'm sorry I ruffled your feathers but you happen to be wrong i know music very well, i'm a musician myself so you really don't need to try and tell me what i do and don't know if any of the bands you listed get a game in their name within the next 2 years i'll eat my hat...it just isn't going to happen
Seriously do you not have ne thing better to do? Seriously... And screw Metalica! Tey are by far the biggest sellouts in rock and roll. They will NEVER EVER top their old stuff because they are now wankers... Even if this was exclusive who cares... And who buys GH anyhow. RB all the way.
I really wish they just made these add-ons to the main Guitar Hero game that you could port from one to another.
as does most of the world...it doesn't make sense why they aren't compatible with each other at this point
a guitar hero fan anymore, world tour was disappointing when i got it rockband 2 was amazing i got both the same day, and i really wanted to like world tour but it was so blah, unpolished
