  1. 1. GH4 better be toned the fuck down, difficulty wise.

    2. If it doesn't have Stairway To Heaven - hell to pay.

    They said they were gonna have a beginner mode, even easier than easy mode. That said, they probably will ramp UP the difficulty for the other modes a bot because of this.

  2. DLC is a big draw for such an expensive title - it helped Rock Band immensely as well. I've seen or heard so many complaints about lack of DLC support in GH3 or Rock Band for Wii that people refused to buy them, or forswore buying any more GH series games. In addition, I don't know about you, but I don't have room for a new drum kit in my apartment with each iteration, or have the money to plunk down over $350 on two games every year.

    In addition, Activision is always going to be a step behind Harmonix, since they don't care to invest in innovation unless someone else does it first - it's your traditional big corporation. Unless they can prove that they can one up the experience by that much, reasons for justifying spending so much on GH 4 won't be there, and there's nothing to suggest that it will so far.

    This coming from the company that funded Guitar Hero in the first place? The big innovator and financier behind the GH series WAS Activision. Harmonix didn't really innovate past GH, they just took an existing concept and raised it to the next level. Most big companies are the only ones that CAN innovate, and when companies like Activision are willing to take a risk and team up with smaller companies like Harmonix. Most small companies end up making titles like Carnival Games or other knockoffs. Here, activision is taking Rock Band a step beyond Harmonix's ideas with the updated guitar and drum controllers, not to mention the music creator.

    As a consumer who doesn't own rock band, I feel as though if this game were released at a time such that it would compete with rock band, it would sell more copies because it adds functionality and innovation to the core experience. For me, it's a no brainer. The question is whether it's worth it for the people who own Rock Band already.

  3. It'll probably be good as long as it sticks to the tried-and-true formula, but they're gonna have to show me more than what I've seen so far to get me to pay ~$175 for Rock Band clone. The way I see it, you can't beat Harmonix at their own game.

    Problem with that argument is that ionno, I feel like Harmonix was trying to beat Activision at their own game with Rock Band. With the music creator and all the added functionality Activision is adding, I think they're making the game different enough from Rock Band to create a different market. Plus, I don't know about you, but I HATE the Rock Band guitars.

  4. No vocals on created tracks is fail though. And Activision hasn't been very supportive on the DLC front, much less in providing a variety. This is a wait and see IMO.

    not really. I'd rather not have vocals on the created tracks, copyright issues notwithstanding. Plus, DLC isn't going to be the main selling point of this title. It'll be the tracks included in the game proper, the gameplay mechanics, and online play. On these fronts, Activision has succeeded in every iteration of the game.

  5. You guys are all pussies. What the hell is a pansy little blue energy blast to the HARDEST PUNCH IN EXISTENCE. Plus, think about it. Hadokens, along with being so girly they make me shit faries, are slow as shit. In three dimensions, what the fuck is it gonna do for you? On the other hand, you can punch through anything and everything with the shoryuken. Ryu runs about as fast as his hadokens as well- you might as well catch up to the guy. You'll be much more likely to hit him. Jesus, all you have to do is step to one side. How the hell do you get away from a leaping uppercut to your face? I can't believe you people.
