Band Hero: A Theory of mine that I had since GH:WT came out.

Band Hero

Found 7 posts - Go to Last Post


So Band Hero, has been discovered by me, thanks to the "Recently Updated Games" feed (Thanks Eric).

Well, let me tell you all a short story.
About a year ago, Guitar Hero: World Tour came to be. Of course, to keep up with the competitive, recently released, Rock Band, Neversoft decided that there game shall have to include Drums and Vocals, if they ever wished to sell as well as Rock Band did. Inevitably, there new addition to the Guitar Hero franchise, Guitar Hero: World Tour outsold Rock Band, mainly because of the peasants of gaming who thought that it was a direct sequel of the original Guitar Hero games, which it wasn't, they (or at least, the first two) where made by Harmonix, creators of Rock Band. When this was announced (that is, GH:WT outselling Rock Band), I happened to be on the live stream of Expert Rock Band Drummer, IBitePrettyHard. The chat was full of people like me, true fans of the Guitar Hero franchise, who refused to listen to Neversoft's idiocy after playing Guitar Hero 3's shitty Hammer-on, Pull-off style. So it was there that I began calling it "Band Hero", as you're playing as a Band, not only on Guitar, which is something that Neversoft, apparently, doesn't understand.

But it turns out, my joking has actually come to be! Neversoft are releasing Band Hero, well, this is going to be interesting, methinks. But rather the game being about epic riffs, and brain melting guitar solo's, it's going to be focused around pop music! I can feel every real Guitar Hero fan's soul screaming in agony.
This pretty much proves how greedy Neversoft are, as if the Guitar Hero games aren't family friendly enough, considering the heavy censorship in Guitar Hero 5 which has pissed quite a few people off, including me.

Prepare for the most boring game that Neversoft has ever released with the prefix "Hero", I'm not looking forward to this, I doubt anyone is.

*Note For Eric*
The reason this is being posted here is that I can't access the forums of the "Band Hero" page, I'm not too sure why, but if you can fix that, move this there, then get rid of this note, I won't mind in the slightest.

I'm not but then again the last game i played like this was GH3 which was really dull. Its created far too many people who think that becuase they can play dragonforce on expert that they'd nail Herman Li in a real shredding session. Great songs have been ruined by the franchise. Laid to Rest by Lamb of God with its awful GH2 cover and Beofre I Forget by Slipknot on GH3. The fact that one of these games is relased per year (or almost) makes it worse along with the insane price tag for a game a cheap plstic junk that takes up too much space.

Don't ask me how many time's I've been told to "play a real guitar, faggot!" I know I suck at guitar, I never said I didn't, but these ass-hats, who I'm in the room with or playing with online (the latter one makes me cry laughing, You're playing a plastic guitar as well, dipshit.)

I just think that people have started the "go play real guitar" argument because they're too incompetent to play Guitar Hero/ Rock Band, so they have to insult people who aren't.

I've never seen anyone tell someone who's good at Call of Duty to "go play a real war" or have someone good at Halo be told to "fire a real laser rifle". This is just getting stupid for me, I don't see why it's just people like me (who play plastic guitar) who get insulted for being good at the game we're playing...

You're fine, mate. I've just actually met a kid in Gamestation (West Ealing one, Billy) who was like "Dad, buy me the new one! I'm great at guitar"

I was impressed, that he could play well on Guitar hero AND a guitar at what... 12? So I asked him "You play the guitar?"

He answers "Yeah, and I'm on Hard Mode!" (OR insane. Something crazy mode... I've never played."

THAT is what I speak of, Hywel. Relax. You're in the clear.

Well I've never met anyone who thought that they'd be good at guitar after playing guitar hero, probably because I stopped going to video game stores and buy all my games online now, no need to talk to some Gears of War Fanboy-asshole who won't shut the fuck up about how my purchase is awful at the counter.
