Zomg. It sounds fokking amazing!
It’s got EVERYTHING in it that you could possibly want! Guitarists get a new, WIRELESS, more responsive guitar (kinda looks like a Gibson Les Paul, but it’s not, it’s more spiky ), bassists can get their own unique bass guitar, vocalists get a new, more responsive microphone… and for drummers, well… um… you thought it was REALLY hard already?
IT’S JUST GOT HARDER!
You’ve got three pads in front of you, then you have two pads higher up, which are cymbals. That’s a total of FIVE targets, one more than the already near-impossible drums on Rock Band! AND you’ve STILL got the foot pedal to use! SIX TARGETS?! They might as well have added a sixth key on the guitars for Uber difficulty mode! Oh, and did I mention that the drums were also wireless?
The mic still has a wire, understandably. There’s no way you can transmit sound fast enough to the Xbox through a wireless mic. It’ll all lag out and you’d fail faster than Ped.
And, by the way, this is Guitar Hero. Rock Band is easy, whereas Guitar Hero is insane!
Anyway, new features, apparently there’ll be a music studio mode, where you can make your OWN TRACKS. If that’s true, that is the killer, that’s what’s gonna make previous players buy it! If they don’t care about that, then maybe they’ll care about the Battle of the Bands mode, where it’s 4v4 multiplayer! I NEVER thought they’d do that! That’ll be AWESOME!
And there’s all the customisation of Rock Band in Guitar Hero 4 (or Guitar Hero: World Tour, it’s proper name), and MORE! You can modify your guitar to look unique by adding all sorts of random bits of metal on there…
I could go on for hours saying how FREAKING AMAZING this game is going to be, but have a link, instead.
It’s expensive… to say the least. £149. You’ll have to at least get the drums, cuz the old Rock Band set probably won’t work (six targets on GH4… only five on Rock Band… y’know?) but the guitar should, and the mic should. If you don’t care about getting the GH4 stuff, it’ll cost you… um… actually… I don’t know. There isn’t a drum set + game package.
No worries for me, though! EMA’s £20 a week, I owe my mum about £175 still… and… wait, there ARE worries, EMA will only amount up to like… £120, and then I’ve still gotta pay my mum off… GAH! There’s a job at Argos, apparently, if I can get that, OWNED!
So ya. Make sure you save enough for it, unlike me. It’ll be awesome. And if you get it on Xbox and don’t have Xbox Live, sign up! Then we can jam together.
Anyhoo, that’s that. Bye bye for now!
