Featuring the best variety and biggest rock stars of today combined with classic rock anthems, Guitar Hero 5 is the latest installment of the world’s most popular music game. For the first time ever, players can customize the make-up of their band by rocking with any combination of instruments in-game: whether it be two guitars and two drums, or three guitars and a microphone, any combination is possible, allowing players to experience music their own way. Brand new, innovative, easy-to-use gameplay modes like Party Play and RockFest put fun, competition and control at center stage as fans tailor the Guitar Hero experience to match their personal style and interests. For extended hours of entertainment, downloadable content from Guitar Hero® World Tour will be compatible with the game and will automatically be updated to include all of the upgrades and enhancements of Guitar Hero 5.

@MrWhite: No. I'm using Overwatch as an example. (2 minutes ago)
@MrWhite: I'm saying the whole thing has been blown out of proportion re lootboxes in general. The EA BF2 scenario is an example of horrible greedy implementation. (2 minutes ago)
Is this an Overwatch defensive thing going on here or something? Because that's been going on a bit, and not just on here. (3 minutes ago)
@Tiz: Not sure what you're on about here. Are you arguing for or against the things? because if its for, then there's no debate to be had. (4 minutes ago)
If you wanna go "Waahh lootboxes are bad in Overwatch because I can't look like a pirate right fucking now." Then I dunno what to tell you. (5 minutes ago)
@MrWhite: What's bullshit about the argument beyond you saying "It's just bullshit because it is"? (6 minutes ago)
@Tiz: The whole system, the entire mechanic should be done away with. No more excuses for it. It needs fucked off. Doesn't matter how its implemented because this is what it has lead to. (6 minutes ago)
