We have just received a copy of Guitar Hero V, just in time for the European release of the game published by Activision. Instead of showing you the first 10 minutes of the game, I have decided to show you something a bit different, and, who knows, even a lot funnier than the usual stuff. If you're curious, follow me inside. Update: Guitar video added, song choice being so BlimBlim.
I have to confess, I am not a very experienced Guitar Hero player. I can handle the medium mode pretty well but that's about all I can do. Hence my decision to start with a video showing some kind of Driftwood Idol parody. So I took my headset and gave my singing a try while my avatar was pretending he was a star - which is something he achieved shockingly well. Don't worry though, I will add another video showing some guitar gameplay later, simply don't expect it to be a demo of my impressive skills.
One thing is sure, Guitar Hero V has come a long way with its presentation and visuals. There have really been some improvements here and to top it all, the playlist is really good, as far as I can tell. I'm sure everyone will find something they like in the 92 songs available. There are songs where it feels a bit odd to be playing the guitar when what you hear is a piano - like in the Stones song - but overall, it is well designed.
I haven't had much time to play the game so I can't really give you my final opinion about it but suffice to say I've had some fun playing so far. I have noticed a few drops in the framerate from time to time but it hopefully never makes the game unplayable. So, you guys ready? Sing along: "In my place, in my place..."
@KORNdog: The dub was wooden, like most localizations of japanese games at the time. Expensive AAA game pushing the envelope, unlike III which by the looks of it isn't pioneering much, which is fine. (9 minutes ago)
[url] short biomutant gameplay. (19 minutes ago)
i think it'll be fine. it's an in-development title, with a budget on-par with an indie game. you're not going to get the next horizon visually. (53 minutes ago)
you know what i remember about shenmue? wooden delivery of lines and wooden animation. it was about awkwardly walking and running around an environment asking mundane questions (55 minutes ago)
I am sorry nostalgia or not, those shenmues characters look like shot... This is truly embarrassing (2 Hours ago)
locations, and not really a game in development. So much time hiding a game, and this is wath the well known perfections Yu Suzuki shows with a straith face? Fucking kikckstarter strikes again! (3 Hours ago)
game, and it just had some dead eyes faces plasted to the mocaped bodies, it was trully bad. And the deserted city streets. This seems like a talented modder modeling of a "2000's type" of shenmue (3 Hours ago)
