I think it is pretty sad that they are able to rerelease the same game time and again just changing some tracks and the subject and are successful with it.

My thoughts exactly.

Though, at this point i really think fans would go crazy if they didn't get at least two new GH games a year. In fact, that's how i think it should stay. I mean, if they are not taking their time to improve the game, at least they should give us enough content for half a year worth of fun.

even though i dont like activision blatant milking of this franchise with seemingly pointless retail addition, especially considering they could release a track list and character skin over PSN and XBL and have the same effect....i do kinda like that they release so many of these at retail, becasue this way i can just rent them and they dont get a dime...lol

What's the difference between releasing a game like this and releasing songs as DLC???

NOTHING! The only downside is if you can't import the tracks onto the hDD to play in GH4/5. But hey, I don't mind switching disks if I can play the songs I like.

Nope that will be the "Oasis Edition" of Guitar Hero, and it will have a Vampire Alcoholic mode.

if it was just a track list it would be cheaper, since all the assets etc wouldnt be needed. but then that is why activision do it, to rake in the moolah.

    jmd749 It's such a shame this Evolve was delivered in such a shitty manner. Such a brilliant game. (30 minutes ago)
  • jmd749
    jmd749 Evolve's single player mode is brilliant. The AI is better than anything else i've ever seen, makes some players look retarded. I'm levelling up like a boss. :) (31 minutes ago)
  • Phaethon360
    Phaethon360 Visually it's not pretty, but it has some nice effects. Zombie animations are special. (1 Hour ago)
  • digi_matrix
    digi_matrix Also, the art direction in Dying Light is not exactly visually pleasing. It's really drab yellow and brown imo. Dead Island 2 looks far more enticing, cartoonish saturation. (6 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Nah i don't understand the praise. :) (8 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Take a look at FC4 for example, that game looks clean, little aliasing, not nearly as rough looking as DL. (8 Hours ago)
