Game Informer proudly displayed the first images of Guitar Hero IV’s drums. The magazine was pretty impressed by the layout of these electronic drums, which aim to mimic the drum set of Rock Band. Right now, we’re not sure if Guitar Hero’s drum set will work with Rock Band; if not, you’ll have to find a way to creatively fit two gaming drum sets in your living room.
For all of you guitar hero junkies, who have been playing guitar hero for years, but can’t play a single note on a real guitar, Guitar Rising may be for you. Basically, Guitar Rising is a video game where you use a real guitar in order to learn how to play real songs. You can slow down or speed up the songs or play them on varying levels of difficulty. According to the official website, “Beginner difficulty levels are designed for non-guitar players and hard difficulties will challenge experienced guitarists.” Look for Guitar Rising later in 2008 for a currently unknown price.
This is some crazy stuff! I can’t believe this guy is that good. Just watch the Youtube video of “Through the Fire and the Flames” by Dragonforce for Guitar Hero III. Intense.
Nintendo’s DS Lite is now available in pink, or as they call it “Noble Pink”. (What exactly makes a pink “noble”, I wonder?). This is probably an attempt to attract more girl gamers to the DS Lite.
The Pink DS Lite will cost 16,800 Yen ($144 USD) and will be released to overseas nations (nations other than Japan) on July 20th. The Nintendo DS Lite recieved a 8/10 from CNET and a 4.5/5 from PC Magazine.
As Cnet wrote “The good: Higher-resolution display than Game Boy Advance SP; backward compatible with older GBA games; Wi-Fi multiplayer capabilities.
The bad: Lack of third-party support for the system; susceptible to scratches and smudges.
