when the Guitar Hero guy announced the Metallica Death Magnetic album and did the rock sign at Microsoft's E3 conference. Seemed so out of place lol. He seemed so enthusiastic.

    I'm here to talk about... Guitar hero...! (not sure what to use there)

    *crickets*

    lol the most songs = 4-5 more than rock band 2 (but no free DLC XD)


    So they have and REM track pack and Metallica Death Magnetic

    But the DLC from GH3 doesn't transfer over and you can't get songs from the first game

    Yeahhhhhhhhhh

    Ya I think HMX and Konami would have a bone to pick about who invented the concept.

    I laughed when he talked about how GH:WT will have the most songs ever in a music game, and then Alex came out a couple minutes later (After that god awful singing from that girl, seriously I wanted to kill her) and completely owned Activision with their announcement of 84 songs plus 20 free songs.

    And what would be done about the drums and vocals if you *could* import disc songs from previous GH titles?

    "Is going to...for the first time, let people make and share music from around the world."

    Haha, so Activision invented musical instruments and the internet too?

    Well, sounds like the Eagles and Van Halen are exclusive... their loss. No mention of Metallica being exclusive.

    I really do not see how that is good for a band? Yes you may get one nice big pay check, but GH is going to pay you anyways.... why not also get nice big pay checks from others....

    I'm not threatened! Old R.E.M. is superior to the new R.E.M., and new Metallica isn't up my alley quite at all...Oh well. Keep on tryin, Activision :P

    R.E.M. just released a new cd like 4-5 months ago didn't they? I remember they came on The Colbert Report to showcase a song or two. Old REM is far superior though. Their new stuff is garbage.

    This guy is completely full of it. When he and his brother conceived of guitar hero? Are you kidding me? And I loved it when he said, "For the first time in music and video game history, Guitar Hero will have Metallica's highly-anticipated new album Death Magnetic." Completely wrong language for that. It wasn't around during the history which he referenced, good grief.

    And they're releasing the album twice? Wonder if that means people who buy GH3 and World Tour will have to pay for it twice.

    I can't believe people are even considering that garbage.

    I think Activision is going to be really surprised at how much people don't care about GH:WT. With the announcement of RB2, it has become even LESS exciting.

    I'm 90% sure Red Octane approached Harmonix about making Guitar Hero (I think they were gonna do a hip hop game.

    I'm the type of person that can't stand to see someone humiliate themselves, and I almost had to stop watching when he attempted to use the horns...

    Yes, they did, and this is how REM is currently for me: Old stuff > New stuff > Old New Stuff (AKA The new album is actually very good)...

    I actually noticed when he waited for a standing ovation at around 11 seconds in...

    "...GUITAR HERO!" *pumps fist slowly

    I don't like how they put 'Exclusive Van Halen and The Eagles...then Metallica's new album." Hidden message there.

    Oh, and the horns were out of place.

    haha, i laughed at the guy when he said that he and his brother first though up the idea for guitar hero. Even if that's true...i doubt it's true! I'm still interested in the game, but this guy isn't a great public speaker by any means. Sounded liek a nervous kid running for class president...
