Today in the World of Guitar Hero... (6/19/08)

Tons of Guitar Hero related business today...

We'll start with a preview of World Tour by IGN which is about the peripherals, music creator, the modes, and confirmed tracks so far (below).

Sublime - "Santeria"
Billy Idol - "Rebel Yell"
Foo Fighters - "Everlong" (Yes!!!!!)
Blink 182 - "Damnit"
Lenny Kravitz -  "Are You Gonna Go My Way"

At first, I was skeptical about buying another full band game with Rock Band, but the soundtrack for World Tour with an unannounced Linkin Park song along with Van Halen is making me consider spending at least 180 bucks again. Eventually, I'll have no room for all these damn plastic instruments in my own bedroom, which is nuts. With custom songs and a weekly DLC schedule, World Tour is looking to have some more legs than Rock Band being that Neversoft learning Harmonix's mistakes.

The Coldplay DLC came out today on Guitar Hero III and as expected, they're pretty easy songs on Expert (Easy FCs), but those pesky GRB and RYO chords might ruin a FC run if you're not good nailing those consistently like me. "Violet Hill" is the easiest of the three and "God Put A Smile On Your Face" is my best of them while "Yellow" (above) is still pretty good. As mentioned so many times, these songs are perfect for Rock Band and GH World Tour rather than now, but I guess they had to put this one out to coincide with the new album release.

Next week is the releases of On Tour for DS and Aerosmith and videos are starting to surface for Aerosmith charts with "Sweet Emotion" and "Walk This Way" (below). I'm still on the fence on buying it, but I should probably do it and put up a review after some hours with it.
