Seriously, there are people who can actually play this on Guitar Hero? That’s crazy.
Check out the dual drum pedals. Rumored to be a pre-order exclusive with Game Stop (or Game Crazy), I’m sure they’ll be available separately as well.
Look for Guitar Hero: Metallica in March for PS3 and XBox 360 and May for Wii.
Too cool looking. Iâ€™ve heard rumors of a splitter for the drum-kit foot pedal, so you can use two at a time. Weâ€™ll have to wait and see on that.
The first footage of Guitar Hero World Tour is now available and it looks good. People are complaining that it looks too much like Rock Band, but what did you expect. Can’t wait to check this out.
We recently got a Nintendo Wii for the family and with just Wii Fit and Wii Sports, itâ€™s a blast. The simple games and cool controls make it easy to play (and fun). Aside from those two games, the only other one we currently have is Guitar Hero III and Iâ€™ll admit, Iâ€™m addicted.
Having played bass guitar in a band back in high schoolâ€”yes, I had dreams of becoming a rock starâ€”this game was something I wanted to play right away. Iâ€™m currently doing pretty well on the Easy setting and canâ€™t stop thinking about the game. Seriously, itâ€™s too much fun. Itâ€™s got a great list of songs and the Wii version may lack downloadable content, it makes up for it with Wii only features like responsiveness to how you hold the guitar.
Iâ€™ve already decided the only thing I want for Christmas is Guitar Hero World Tour â€“ which adds drums and vocals.
Then for my birthday (or shortly after) it will have to be Guitar Hero: Metallica, which I hope supports the drums from World Tour.
File this under one more reason to want a Wii. Nintendo has created a Co-Star Mode in the new Super Mario Galaxy that lets parents help younger players navigate the 3-D world in the game. from the GameDaily story:
As the second player, you don’t get a character on screen, you get a cursor that is used to capture gems, gather coins, help give Mario jump boosts and distract would-be foes. So younger gamers still get to control the primary character, feel like they’re controlling a game and ensures that the game experience lasts longer than what would occur based on their current abilities.
Very cool. The few times Carter and I have tried to play any games (albeit, it’s the X-Box), he just can’t quite grasp the controls and game play just yet. I don’t know how old I was when I received my first NES, but I remember playing it for hours. Newer games (and especially 3-D navigation) can be harder for younger players, so it’s cool that Nintendo realized this and actually did something about it.
