Just when you thought that the all-star cast of real life rock icons was enough to knock your rocker socks off, Activision announces the addition of more famous artists to the mix. The original announcement had Guns n' Roses, Black Sabbath, Kiss, Pearl Jam, Alice Cooper and a lot more headlining the gig, but wait 'til you get a load of what's been added.
Ever wondered how it feels like to be John Frusciante with his funky riffs tearing through along with Anthony Kiedis' voice? Wonder no more. Current greats Red Hot Chili Peppers just hopped aboard the tour bus and they're taking AFI, Iron Maiden, Queens of the Stone Age, Slayer and the Strokes along for the show.
That's right, all of these bands will have tracks of their own included in Guitar Hero III: The Legends of Rock. One might argue that this is the gaming industry's answer to Woodstock.
The collection of artists and tracks is so deep that AFL's Jade Puget had to say "if you're going to start playing Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock, make sure you have, say, the next 2 years free, because that's all you're going to want to do."
Knowing the kind of success that the Guitar Hero franchise has enjoyed throughout its run, Jade isn't really overstating her case. Still not convinced? Then maybe this list of newly added tracks will change your mind:
· Miss Murder (by AFI)
· Through Fire and Flames (by Dragonforce)
· Number of the Beast (by Iron Maiden)
· 3's and 7's (by Queens of the Stone Age)
· Suck My Kiss (by Red Hot Chili Peppers)
· Raining Blood (by Slayer)
· Reptillia (by The Strokes)
· Paranoid (as made famous by Black Sabbath)
· Cities on Flame (as made famous by Blue Oyster Cult)
· Mississippi Queen (as made famous by Mountain)
· La Grange (as made famous by ZZ Top)
Guitar Hero III comes out later this year for the Sony PlayStation 3, Nintendo Wii and the Microsoft Xbox 360. If you've got the rhythm in you, go out and give it a shot.
