Gamescom 2010: Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock Hands-On Preview

Rockers and/or rollers: We have a review of Activision's Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock for you. The annual release of a huge Guitar Hero game is game is cause for celebration in some circles, and X-Play's resident musical-game genius, Abbie Heppe, is at the center of just such a circle.

So how is it? It's great; it's a Guitar Hero game, and it even adds a quest mode, but like any music game, Warriors of Rock sinks or swims on its setlist. Here's Abbie's description of the songs:

"The tracks are a cross between the music collection of a 30 year old man who could have been labeled alternative in the 90’s and the compilation CD a 17 year old teen might purchase with a Slipknot shirt and a studded belt at the local Hot Topic."
 
Check out the rest of our Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock review, right here.

Halo Reach Soundtrack

Bungie announced as of its first week spinning in Xbox 360’s, over 70 million games of Halo: Reach have been played.  A number which undoubtedly has grown exponentially since then.  So it’s safe to say there are at least a few of you out there enjoying the adventures of Noble Team.  Many of you are also listening to the music composed for Reach and have bought the game’s soundtrack.  As of press time, it holds the #1 spot on Amazon’s MP3 Soundtracks chart and the #3 position on iTunes.  Since you have set your controllers down long enough to read this far, we’ve got some sounds for you to sample as part of The Feed’s review of the Halo: Reach soundtrack.  Hit the jump, Spartan!

Links Of TheFeed: Reggae Seagal, Halo Reach

What can I say? As a kid, I really liked Steven Seagal. He was the king of bad action movies, with classics like Steven Seagal returns from a 7 year coma to kick ass in Hard To Kill, or Steven Seagal is ex-Navy SEAL / chef who fights mercenaries on a battleship in Under Siege, or Steven Seagal takes on Jamaican drug dealers in Marked For Death. Today, Steven Seagal is dealing with Jamaicans again, only this time he's singing some of the worst reggae ever recorded with them. Check it out along with some awesome Halo: Reach kills and more on this week's links.

  • Steven Seagal tries his hand at Reggae. Jah? [FilmDrunk]
  • Find out what happens when an Ed Hardy shirt comes to life. [CollegeHumor]
  • Video of some of the most impressive and ridiculous kills in Halo: Reach so far. [UnrealityMag]
  • The Mapleton Taxidermy and Cheese Store and 19 other ridiculous store combinations. [SuperTremendous]
     



Guitar Hero Controller In Hard Rock Cafe

As an artistic and cultural force, Rock and Roll is dead; It exists now as a marketing tool or a niche music form for pointy-heads and purists, like Jazz, only louder. We can still enjoy the amusement provided by Rock and Roll's rotting corpse however. For instance, Guitar Hero was recently inducted into the hallowed halls of The Hard Rock Hall of Fame.

The ceremony involved placing a Guitar Hero controller (from Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock which coincidentally came out this week! ) on the wall alongside historic memorabilia from such rock royalty as The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix and Elvis Presley. I'm sure John Lennon and George Harrison are proud.

The plastic axe from the New Guitar Hero game was signed by Kiss frontman Gene Simmons, but was presented to the Hall by Kiss fan Kevin Curtis, a Gene Simmons impersonator. The level of Umberto Eco style hyper-reality here is mind spinning: A fake museum adds a fake guitar presented by a guy who fakes being rock star who plays a character anyway. Amazing!

E3 2010: Konami Press Conference Report

Way back in 2008, we brought you the word that Konami was suing Harmonix, alledgeing that Rock Band infringes on Konami's music game patents. The case has been settled. The terms of the settlement have not been revealed, but all claims and counter-claims have been dropped, and both companies can now continue making video games (and money.)

Konami's original point was that it had two patents on simulated musical instruments, a music-game system and a musical-rhythm matching game, that they came up with in 2002 2003. Harmonix counter-suit claimed that the musical instruments in Konami's Rock Revolution infringed on their patents.

I'm no lawyer, but it does seem that Konami's big-in-Japan games Guitar Freaks and Drum Mania (and, for that matter, Dance Dance Revolution) use a lot of the same tech and ideas that found their way into Rock Band and Guitar Hero. Not that that means a patent was infringed upon, of course. Either way, the case is over. The dust has settled. Go about your day.

Halo: Reach Soundtrack Album

The hardcore Halo-faithful among you are keenly aware that there has been a soundtrack release for every game in the Halo franchise, going all the way back to Halo: Combat Evolved. Halo: Reach does not disappoint in this area, as the downloadable version of its soundtrack album is available now, day and date with the game.

The awesome people at Sumthing Else Music Works sent over some pieces from the album for you to enjoy.  So if you are a student stuck in class or a cubicle drone doing your droney things instead of playing the game like a metric ton of other gamers right now, we dedicate these songs to you, to tide you over until you can wrap your fingers around your 360 controllers later today and hear them in-game.

Details Revealed About Spider-Man Musical

If you did not happen to catch ABC's Good Morning America on Friday, then you likely missed some big reveals for the upcoming Broadway debut of Spider-Man entitled Turn Off The Dark. We not only got a sneak peak at two of the many villains (pics below) who will be featured in the superhero musical, but we also got to see the Great White Way's new Peter Parker in Reeve Carney perform "Boy Falls From The Sky," one of the songs featured in the show. With an introduction by U2's Bono and The Edge, whose work on the show's score has been touted for the last few years, it seems that the minds behind Turn Off The Dark were in full pimp mode for its impending debut on December 21, 2010.

So, will this be the show that finally drags fanboys from their comic dungeons to get up to New York to and embrace the "fabulousness" that is Broadway? Well, that might be pushing it, and you'll soon see why.
