i was recently told that the fourth guitar hero is going to be entirely Aerosmith songs and the characters are the bandmates themselves from Aerosmith.it seems like this game could be lacking but at the same time it could be fun too.as a matter of fact a friend of mine said that the guitar hero series could be the biggest thing since final fantasy.what do you all think?

I think it's a good idea, but more in the way of being a patch/expansion deal rather than its own game. They could do a whole series! *waits for Guitar Hero: Queen* :toothy:

Dissapointment. I like Aerosmith, just not enough to pay $40 for a nothing but Aerosmith guitar hero.

Yea Aerosmith is alright but not enough to pay money to play.

Exactly. That's why I think it'd be good if it was just an expansion that didn't cost as much.

I'm gonna get a lot of hate for this, but I consider Aerosmith to be one of the most overrated bands of all time. I like maybe 3 of their songs (Dream On and Sweet Emotion are my favorites), and I don't really see them as being "The best American band ever" as they claim. I also agree that this really should just be DLC, but it will certainly sell at $60, since the country can't get enough Guitar Hero at this point.

Not to mention, Aerosmith is apparently the bestselling American hard rock band ever. I think it'll do well, despite not everyone liking them.

Apparently it's not going to be JUST aerosmith.

We should all calm down and wait until a new list is released.

But this better not be full price. If the 80's version wasn't a full version, this won't be either.

Yes, I read that it also includes some bands that toured with/opened for Aerosmith over the years.

there should be Guitar Hero: Rolling Stone before they make Aerosmith, the possibility would be endless. Imagine, one of the career mini-game : fill up Keith Richards' blood vessels with alcohol.

Forty...we're talking about Activision here remember...at least $60 (Rock the 80's anyone?)

And I'm hooked on Rock Band as is...no more Guitar Hero for me...period. I don't need to buy a new incarnation of RB every 4 months, as Harmonix and EA actually deliver new songs, on a schedule, and cheaper than the GH tracks.

I have to say, Guitar Hero is somewhat dead to me.

Rock Band is doing it right with awesome DLC.

Anxiously waiting for "Still Alive".

Chalk a third for the Rock Band party.

I do wonder if Harmonix will release a nice large Aerosmith pack when this GH hits to counter it? I'd love a good five songs from them.

another oppinion i have is that sure aerosmith may be one of the best bands ever but they are not THE best.the possibility of just an expansion pack still rings in my ears.and maybe,MAYBE rockband is better than guitar hero.who knows?hell maybe some day there will be a rockband/guitarhero combo game?and damnit i'd like to be able to download we three kings on a ps2 without wasting $500 for a ps3 and other complicated crap.

Until I see a couple of Led Zeppelin or AC/DC songs, Guitar Hero can stick it.

Aerosmith edition? Oh yeah--I really can't wait to play the guitar part of "Crazy".:rolleyes:

I wouldn't touch the game with a ten-foot pole since I hate Aerosmith, but even if it were a band I really liked, I'd agree it's silly to release an entire game for one band-- or, if you must, one band and some people who toured with them. It would've been inifinitely more useful as an expansion or DLC. I don't see this going over very well.

Starwind loves him some Aerosmith something fierce. Do I think this will boost GH's quality. No. Will I drop 40 bucks on it? Yes, I am a consumer whore. And yes, it isn't just Aerosmith, but according to the press release "Some of their favorite bands". So who knows who'll end up in this game.

And not for nothing, Joe Perry is one hell of a guitarist, and there's a new album dropping this year, so it makes sense. And why I prefer Rock Band over GH, at least I won't have to endure my friends singing poor renditions of my favorite Aerosmith songs (s'up Poppa Roach, N'Sync, Nelly and countless other bands who need to stay the hell away from Aerosmith's song category).

Still, this should turn out to be better than that turd that was GH: 80s Edition. Course it helps that Aerosmith has been around longer/ produced better songs than any of those bands to begin with.

I prefer classic Aerosmith more than their new stuff. They should just make it as Downloadable Content for 360, Wii or PS3 instead of releasing it on a separate disc. I also can smell a Guitar Hero Metallica maybe a year after the release of Aerosmith's Guitar Hero.

It will be nice in the future that they will release Guitar Hero: Metal(includes Black Metal and Death Metal of course \m/) and Guitar Hero: Country.

i'm told that the guitar hero creators do take advice.maybe you should visit their website and tell them your idea?they sound cool.

They need to make "Guitar Hero: Actually hook up a electric guitar to the system"

Maybe then I'd respect Guitar Hero players.

You do realize that the original creators of "Guitar Hero" no longer produce the Guitar Hero series right...

I absolutely hate people who think like this. And on the other spectrum, I hate people who think they're hot shit because they can play it well.
You're pressing buttons on a plastic ukulele. It's a game, and nothing more. A fun game, yes. But something to judge respect on? No.

On the other hand, the game did inspire me to pick up a guitar and learn to play. So, yeah.

Quoted for extreme truth. I don't think having skill at any video game should inspire respect.

Damn you, Shotzy, for saying all that first!:bigtu:

I don't hate the game or players really, I just hate how popular it is. When a video of a guy playing Through the Fire and Flames on very hard gets awesome reviews, while a guy playing on a guitar gets almost nothing. Thats what I hate.

you mean like people who praise the "934K guy" but bash on the actual Dragonforce band?

Pro-Tip : Dragonforce is a studio band. They aren't really that good of guitar players. Try seeing them live...lol.

Pro-Tip : Dragonforce is a crap band. They aren't really that good of guitar players. Try seeing them live...lol.

Fixed. The same goes for Nightwish, who I'm actually a pretty big fan of, but refuse to pay to see them live again, unless their touring with several other bands I like.

Aerosmith, on the other hand, is a band that has an easy 20-30 years of age I've seen live, and put on a better show than most of them.

No. I will not buy this game.
When i picked up Brawl this morning i saw it being advertised in Game Stop and I'm just staring, gaping mouth, like why o why would they even waste money making that game. It does seem like a franchise boost, although i though Guitar Hero was doing well.
I must say that i loved GH2 sooo much, but didnt bother to buy 3 after playing it in stores. Brought Rock the 80s and hated it. So maybe Guitar Hero is just dead to me

seems like you would be more into RockBand.but you do know about how people refer to that game as "just party and no concert music" right?ofcourse with the exception of "timmy and the lords of the underworld" and "green grass and high tides".

speaking of which *for everyone to answer:*

what are your favorite guitar hero/rockband songs and why?

!*Jessi-Chan*!
03-10-2008, 06:20 PM
I dont own Rock Band, but i have played it. Seems like a pretty good game and if i had it, i'd probably love it. lol

My fav GH song is Beast and the Harlot *swoons* Looooove that song. Didnt know it till i played GH, but now, love it sooo much

Fav Rock Band song is Dani California...but only because i can play that on vocals. I didnt know too many of the other songs beforehand so that one came off naturally.

Megadeath would be a good band to put on Rock Band. But I don't have the 360 version, so I don't know anything about the downloadables.GH should have more classic rock songs in it.

03-24-2008, 12:55 PM
i agree both GH and RB should have more classics on it. RB has more current songs but i am glad they put run to the hills by iron maiden on there! (among others of course)

Through the Fire and Flames is a great song true true.
i thought it was hilarious that they put Tenacious D on there for some reason...guess its cause i wasn't expecting that.
