Official Guitar Hero 360 Discussion Thread - Page 11

post #301 of 3085
So I love Guitar Hero and have both 1 and 2 for the p2 that I still play. I played it at best buy on the 360 yesterday and didn't seem overly impressed with it enough to spend 90 bucks on essentially the same game. The guitar did feel laggy in the whammy bar but today im reading there are a few variations to this guitar and only some have that effect. I also found the fret buttons felt close together or more so than what im used to with my GH2 controller for the ps2. My question is if the DLC is just GH1 tracks and there are only the few more tracks on the 360 version is it really worth it to get it or should I wait for GH3.

Ileff mentioned that his 6 year old has no problems with it.

Thanks for the feedback. Sounds like he might have fun with it. I have no interest, but I can't keep a beat to save my life (hopefully the fate of the world never rests on me being able to clap along to music).

Actually that gives me a much better idea of what the game is like. Thanks.

that flying V is custom, it is just a sheet cut out of wood, with internals and stuff for GH on PS2

no stickers for me, but i've got a little something for you in a few min, for now, try and see what's different about this:

Maybe I'm blind, but I don't see anything different. Do we get a hint?

Is it that the base of the Whammy stick is white? I believe mine is black. Also, should the raised part of the body of the guitar near the whammy's point be a different shade of white? I don't think mine is.

Maybe your wife has a thing for the lead singer? It's been known to happen!

The base of my whammy bar is black as well. I didn't really pay attention to where the expansion port is on mine but I know some are on the side and some are on the bottom. My pickguard looks like that though too - it's actually got a pearlescent finish on it of sorts.
post #313 of 3085
dbburns got it right, white whammy.

i stole it from the PS2 controller, cause i wasnt happy with the 360 whammy, and i'm selling my ps2 stuff anyway

as for the raised part of the body, that's how it came, it's more like painted and smooth than the body, which is kind of textured.




you'll notice the ps2 bar (white) has a stiffer angle, and is longer, i used that, and kept the 360 spring, because it's a little tighter than the ps2 spring.
post #314 of 3085
you can also keep the black piece, but i cant find a tool small enough to remove the C-Clip, i will be switching back to the black, and keeping the ps2 bar (the metal piece) eventually, because the white wont work with my paint scheme.... oops, i wast supposed to mention that yet


i have detailed pics of the guts, circuit boards, etc, if anyone wants to see them.

dolby 5.1 is worth it alone.

the new guitar is worth it alone, much tigher feel all around with the exception of the whammy

leaderboards make it worth it.

and downloadable content is really gonna make it worth it, GH is getting really popular, and i see a bunch of artists out there looking to make a buck or two on a song, GH creates a lot of buzz around certain artists IMO, i think we'll have a lot more downloadable songs than we think, just gotta give it a little time.


with harmonix and red octane splitting, activision and neversoft doing whatever they want, i wouldnt wait around for GH3, it might be a while.

think of the 360 version as GH - Greatest hits, because most of the GH1 tracks will be on live, along with a bunch of new stuff.
post #316 of 3085
Welp... After 45 minutes , first time with a GH. I have 84% on Possum Kingdom (Easy). My fingers hurt and I am dizzy
post #317 of 3085
I played for the first time last night, and I know what you mean about the dizzy part. When the songs are over and I read my stats screen, the screen appears to be rising, even though it isn't. I can't wait until I play this weekend and add beer/wine into the mix. Should be good, dizzy times indeed.
post #318 of 3085
next mod, click for large size.

color is transparent candy apple red, and when layered correctly on white, looks like blood the transparency also gives the effect of a glass coating, with no clearcoat needed, it's hard to show in the pics, but it looks awesome, even though i got a little air bubble or something in it.

but this was just a test, ultimately i want to do the white body in this red, and then the part that is now red will be gloss black, along with the neck, then i'll re-do the buttons in red or black, and like i said, i'm gonna switch back to the black whammy base piece.

well here's the pics, please let me know what you think

post #319 of 3085
Very nice!
post #320 of 3085
Can anyone direct me to a list of song titles on this game? Thanks in advance.

I'd like to see a lot wider variety of music from different genres released. I know GH has its roots more in metal / hard rock, and I like the songs available now. But I'd also like to see other popular music such as Dave Matthews, John Mayer, Maroon 5, etc. What do you think the chances of getting some music such as that?

Even some classics like REO Speedwagon's Keep on Rolling would be very cool. You know you've got the BH bug when every time you hear a song you judge whether that would be a good one or not for GH!

I always thought it would be cool if they did an Acoustic Guitar Hero.

I hope slim to none

Nothing personal, everyone likes what they like, but the idea of a guitar game is to play guitar rock....If the song doesn't make you want to swing the axe around your head like a deadly weapon, IMHO, it probably belongs in a different game.

But thats my .02 cents....I'm currently in love with 80's New Wave and frankly, I wouldn't want any of that in this game either...it just seems wholly out of place.

I think REO Speedwagon is just too far off the beaten path for most people to recognize, like Uriah Heep or April Wine (Sign of the Gypsy Queen anyone?), etc.

I give props...I'd like to rock out to Slash and Burn, Street knows what I'm talkin about

I agree!

I'd like to see some more silly hair metal like Cherry Pie. They absolutely need to do an AC/DC song pack.
post #327 of 3085
I disagree.

I enjoy all types of music (except country) and would love them to release some more songs from different artist with different styles. I would love themed releases for music packs. But some artists I would LOVE to see for Guitar Hero:

The Who
Bruce Springsteen
U2
The Flaming Lips
The Clash
The Darkness
More Van Halen
More Police
Queen
REM
Smashing Pumpkins
Tenacious D

I mean sure they don't all have the headbanging guitar riffs, but neither did "Rock This Town" yet it is one of my favorite songs to play!
post #328 of 3085
Songs should be decided by song rather then group. Smashing Pumpkins Bullet with Butterfly Wings would be pretty cool. I wonder why there is no Van Halen already....

Reports of a faulty whammy bar on the XBOX 360 guitar controller are REALLY starting to pile up on the official Guitar Hero forum...
