Trying to work within the limits of the money making machine that is Activision.

without knowing all the permutations, I guess I'll just stick with the games as being completely separate.

As long as GH remains a quality product, it doesn't matter who makes the game. At least RedOctane got over $100 million for its sale to Activision. Not the monstrous $200+ million that MTV paid for Harmonix.

they kept the people behind the hardware and just dumped the rest of the company.

I do feel bad for Neversoft. I thought they finally got their legs with GH5 and Band Hero.

And the company behind Van Halen was the only one to do a quality audience. That was the first audience that I felt moved well with the music and really grooved. This was a better audience than Neversoft created with GH5/BH.

But if Activision goes the cheap route and hires a company like the one behind the new Karaoke Revolution (the company that was behind the Burger King games), ugh... death of a franchise.

I think this is just Activision overreacting. But I guess they don't want to be too slow to react like EA. Look how EA is suffering now. Yes, the music genre is once again becoming a niche market like DDR, but it's still plenty big enough. Collectively, the GH/BH/DH group still did very well, beating out the RB/RB2/LRB group even if individually, the titles suffered sales-wise.

sigh, I guess with this news we will never get the rest of the songs from GH:WT and Smash Hits that weren't imported in the first group...

deal braker for me, I was really hoping we'd get the rest of the songs before I bought any new DLC for GH5

Sorry to dredge an old thread, but it seems silly to have a GH thread for every version when a single RockBand thread has worked so well for multiple iterations.

So...Rolling Stone is reporting that you'll play the whole 2112 suite in GH:WoR. Sounds interesting even though I'm a total RB honk.

Holy necrothread, Batman!
So....will my RockBand guitars be compatible with new GH games? Where do you find out this stuff? I have GH3 and I found out the hard way...incompatible. I bought RB because I heard the guitars were better. Are there good GH guitars? I mean, really. I've already got one of the games......

okay, just finished the demo for GH warriors of rock.

i don't know what to say. i was worried that all the songs that most people know had already been mined by RB and GH and maybe this music is just too old for me. heavy metal from the 70s and 80s just doesn't do it for me.

as for the game itself, somehow the resolution of the game looks lower. GH5 and BH looked better to me.

and the difficulty was ramped up. i know that people that still play these music games are experts and can easily pass previous iterations of the games but they need to keep it reasonable for us casual players.

I think the era of RB and GH has passed me by. now they're plucking songs that only diehards know.

tried teh demo, still a crap interface gameplay hasn't improved nor has the charting. For some reason some idiot at neversoft still thinks grey is the prefect color for the bass beat notes while on a gray note runway. Non of the notes feel in any way connected to the actual music and frankly the game is just GH5 but with longer unskippable cutscenes. HMX jumps to a new echelon while neversoft wallows in the filth.

GH still has the open note on Bass that I think RB should adopt.

I thought the demo was more enjoyable for a GH game. I liked the bonuses you got when becoming a warrior, and the cut scene with Johnny drunk in the beginning. I wish they would update the chart visuals to something new, skittles are getting old.

I haven't bought A GH since 3 and Metallica. I rented/borrowed WT and 5, played them once and never cared to go back for more. I might actually pick this one up, not for $60 launch price though. There are a bunch of bands on there I'd liked to hear.

They're not grey, they're purple. They don't seem to increase the volume of the instrument you're playing.

I would agree but RB Bass Pro-Mode is such a huge leap forward that it's irrelevant.

I don't want to start a you-know-what-contest, but I would add that the reviews have been a little too harsh. Is it a 9? No, but I'd give it 7-8. Yes, there are some songs that are from RB, but does anyone have more than one game where you can drive an R8 or shoot an m4? The arcade-y gimmicks add a little variety and challenge and the story mode offered a bit of a twist - certainly more than the mumbling cartoon flash cards.

The controller is ace, looks cool and plays without a hitch. The only drawback for some is that it offers a click/friction. YMMV.

I put in about 4hrs before hitting a wall at the last song, so I dropped from expert to medium to finish it off. This of course opened up a whole other branch of challenges.

I'm not a big rush fan, but the 2112 "act" seemed to fit the story and was an interesting diversion. It certainly isn't like playing "limelight," though. ;-)

in any other time, I'd probably pick this up along with RB3.

but I am kind of burned out on band games. the only music game I can see myself getting is DJ Hero 2 because the mixes are sick. I think I'll sit out on RB3 and GH6.

making the songs harder doesn't do it for me. i max out at hard. expert is out of the question for me.

making songs more realistic (a la RB3) doesn't do it for me. I'm not a musician. I just want to play a game. And don't try to tell me RB3 is a bridge to playing real instruments.

I grew up playing piano and never went further. At least I can read sheet music (thanks to real piano lessons). I at least have that over self taught musicians who only play by ear and experimentation. I tried to pick up guitar but some of the hand positions are just too hard for me. Making a game out of it can't help that out.

I'm moving back to my roots. Used to be a DDR nut. Now will be doing Dance Central and maybe Zumba (always wanted to learn Latin dances but never had the courage).

DOMINATION HEADACHE

Ok, so I've decided that I'd drop down level or two and play bass just to finish out the game and ran into a wall with the Artyeus (sp) song. I missed a grand total of two notes and it won't give me the 35 (thus 40) I need to clear the song and the stage. Grrr. I don't recall the other songs needing to be 100%, but this one just might have to be.

There are some ok songs in the last few tiers but just not my cup of tea for the vocals or the button-mashing wankery. That, and I'll end up single if I try and master the "Snot" track while anyone else is home. Ironically, most of the songs with "cookie monster voice" vocals have some interesting riffs.

All in all, the game has been pretty fun- especially since the track list rounds out to 397 after importing tunes and dlc from the other titles. This does, of course mean, Taylor Swift and Spice Girls which we have been wearing out thanks to the youngest diva in our group.
