X06: Guitar Heroes 2 gameplay

X06: Guitar Heroes 2 gameplay

SnakeX is back with lots of videos! Let's start with Guitar Heroes 2 and this excellent quality video but with a very slight but noticeable sound delay. We are using a brand new encoding system with this new camcorder so it will take some time before we are confident with the whole encoding, sorry about that.
Update: Fixed version online.

It really should be wireless- but oh well.

I don't think MS are even letting any third parties develop wireless controllers of any sort yet.

Maybe now would be a good time to do the opposite then :P I'm really looking forward to this game, it's addicting and fun

That guy totally knows how to play guitar and the left hand moving across the fretboard looks pretty legit to what the real thing would be like. I'm all over this game.

The controller is wired.

coming from a metal player, i can say that this looks legit. i cant help but laugh whenever i see one of these vids though lol. but it does look fun. id like to check it out to see how real it feels.

any musicians try GH1 yet? hows it feel?

I play guitar and the controller is very light and of course has a 'cheaper' feel to a real guitar than you're used to, but its still an incredibly fun game... if anything it actually helps you practise rhythm and coordination, and it feels quite realistic in an unrealistic way... bah its hard to explain you just have to try it lol.

About the game


What's up?
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog and i say that as someone who believed half life 2 is still the greatest FPS ever made. but it's still an issue that plagues a lot of games. horizon recently was terrible at this with the audio logs. (6 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog but that's a common problem with maintaining player control even when characters are talking at you. you get distracted and start fannying around. (7 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @MrWhite: eh, i'll give you alex vance, but i don't really find any of the others particularly well written. and i'd argue throwing boxes while you're supposed to be engrosse in story is bad design. (8 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Sometimes the less you know about a character too = more interesting. Like G-Man. He pops up now and again being a creepy bastard. Thats what makes him interesting. (2 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Plus the fact you were messing about with boxes is a good thing, no? Game first, story and characters second is my motto. (2 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @KORNdog: Come on Korn, you know thats a horseshit statement you made. Before Naughty Dog and Bioware with Mass Effect, there was Alyx Vance. She may be a bit dated these days, but back then... (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @MrWhite: i guess i missed it. i was too busy running about all over the place throwing boxes around as my mute husk. lol (2 Hours ago)
