Guitar Hero Live

Post by K2. » Tue Apr 14, 2015 8:53 pm

The newest instalment in the Guitar Hero series was announced featuring two distinctly different modes. Live where you play to a live crowd who react depending on how well you play, and video where you play along to what is promised to be an ever growing library of music videos.

Game footage of both modes was shown at an event earlier today with Gerard Way performing his former band's NaNaNa (NaNaNaNaNaNaNaNaNa) and Pete Wentz performing a Fall Out Boy song, unsure what one. When I, or someone else finds a youtube video of this I'll edit it into the op.

So is anyone here excited about a new guitar hero game, or the new look of the game where you play to real crowds or play along to music videos.

The trailer is below

kinda feels like they're riding on the coattails of Harmonix announcing Rock Band, so my impression toward this is less than positive

probably not gonna buy into it since i'd have to buy more new peripherals on top of what i need for Rock Band on ps, even then i think i'd only get a guitar at this point

The live crowd thing seems interesting, and I'd love to play along to the music videos although if I was to get a guitar game I'd be getting Rocksmith most likely as I could use my own bass then and not a plastic toy.

I really hate the new chord peripheral - 3 frets is just screaming 'missed opportunity' to me, like, it should have been four, you at least know?

At least four would have made sense yeah, it's screaming overly ambitious to me, but it looks good visually at least

Rather play a Harmonix music game any day of the week but at least they've taken this in a different direction.

Not sure what I think of the new fret system, but since Rock Band 4 isn't coming to Wii U I guess I'll end up picking this up.

Looks like a eton mess gimmick honestly.

Was quite hype for this until I saw that trailer, I hate the fmv approach, it looks cheap and tacky. GH TV sounds awesome, but I heard it's a paid service, if it is then I won't bother.

This is not what I wanted from a next gen Guitar Hero, Rock Band 4 it is then.
