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..."
@asdfg: By comfortable, I meant for my eyes not in the sense that horror games should be comfortable and less scary. I loved how scary/jumpy it was. It would have been just as scary in 3rd personview. (54 minutes ago)
Could you even rent time on a machine like that though? I bet like 75% of the people who "rode" the attraction would puke :D (4 Hours ago)
I'm pretty sure that rig costs a lot more than that :P (4 Hours ago)
@MrWhite: Very scary. What if you accidentally drop your $1000 headset? (4 Hours ago)
