First Videos of Guitar Hero 3!

Everyone’s favorite FOX owned gaming site, IGN, has played Guitar Hero III, and has the first world premiere videos of the game in action for Guitar Hero fans to salivate over until the game launches this fall.

These 2 videos feature “Slow Ride” and “My Name is Jonas”, both of which we found out about a few days ago. You’ll notice that Neversoft has totally redesigned the HUD, and I’m not really sure if I like it yet, although I have a feeling it’ll probably grow on me. Another thing is that it doesn’t look like they’ve made any gameplay changes, so you won’t have to learn the game all over again.

I’ll shut up now so you can just watch the videos. Hit the jump where I’ve uploaded them to Youtube as to avoid IGN’s shitty streaming system.

I LOVE MY NAME IS JONAS! They should do a version entirely of Weezer’s first and second albums. I’d buy it.

It’s a shame in Guitar Hero they make stuff like the finger picking intro to My Name is Jonas (also with Boston’s More Than a Feeling) way harder than it would be in real life, because there’s nothing like finger picking on the Guitar Hero controller.

Fair enough, and I’d be right on board for a Guitar Hero: “Blue and Pink… …erton”

But with fingerpicking, it generally requires the use of four, if not five fingers, plus whatever fretting the song calls for. Songs like Dust in the Wind, or even Shape of my Heart would be nigh on impossible, let alone the intro to Crazy on You, which even on expert is a walk in the park compared to the original, as far as necessary dexterity is concerned.

For the record, I’d love to see Don Ross’ “Dracula & Friends Pt.1″ on one of these games. Then I’d like to see somebody ace it on expert. I’d be willing to settle for Kimblim or Robot Monster, as well.

This should definitely be on guitar hero.

yes classic rock was good for its time. Rock has evolved since then. “musically” metal destroys all other forms of rock. It would also make the game a bit more challenging.

I’m a proud defender of metal, but that statement is just re-friggin-diculous, and untrue.

Hey they need to put some Dehtklok in there like “Duncan Hills Jingle” and “Awaken Mustakrakish”. That would be the most metal thing ever. For those of you who don’t know who Dethklok is, they sing “Thunderhorse” which was on Guitar Hero 2 as a bonus track.
For more info and mp3s from Dethklok, go to http://www.adultswim.com/shows/metal/.

And watch Metalocalypse on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim to see more Dethklok…

Dethklok Says:

Also, I have some of the songs here supposedly from the setlist of GH3. They are:
“Barracuda”- Heart
“Cherub Rock”- Smashing Pumpkins
“Cult of Personality”- Living Colour
“Even Flow”- Pearl Jam
“My Wave”- Soundgarden
“Knights of Cydonia”- Muse
“Lay Down”- Priestess
“The Metal”- Tenacious D
“My Name is Jonas”- Weezer
“Paint it, Black”- The Rolling Stones
“Rock and Roll All Nite”- KISS (FINALLY!)
“Sabotage”- The Beastie Boys
“School’s Out”- Alice Cooper
“Slow Ride”- Foghat
And, maybe “Stairway to Heaven” by Led Zeppelin.

Also, Queens of the Stone Age, Velvet Revolver,AC/DC, and (THANK GOD SOMEBODY THERE THOUGHT ABOUT THIS) Metallica, are rumored to be appearing in the game as well.

Metallica!

yeah………. ya see, soundgarden blows…

velvet revolver and qotsa have been confirmed, however we don’t know the songs…

theyve been trying for ages to get zeppelin, ac/dc, and metallica, but none of the bands will license the rights to the songs to harmonix so they can make the note charts, so don’t go getting everyone’s hopes up about stairway… they’ve been trying to get that bitch up since the first gh

this game is gonna suck compared to rock band, anyway
