Wow, the avitars are really lame
That's pretty gross actually. If someone discovered a way to resurect the dead, and Kurt came back to see this I think he would top himself again.
As with every Guitar Hero and Rock Band game, I wouldn't buy it because I could buy 2 brand new games for the price of a guitar hero game. Heck, I could even buy myself an actual guitar and have a life. The sooner this Music game fad dies out the better IMO, It's starting to annoy me.
Now please excuse me while I listen to nevermind on full volume.
Wow Guitar Hero just wow. This brand is just getting shittier with each release. I'm going back to watching a bunch of Beatle Rock Band vids to cleanse my mind of this garbage.....
I've got to hit the hay now, but if you're interested in continuing any discussion just leave a P.M..
Otherwise I'd be happy to agree to disagree.
I hope Giant Bomb rates it 3 or less stars. I have had the game for a while now and it's not that great when compared to others (Rock Band 2).
Hilarious yet messed up, certainly.
I've never really had much respect for Cobain since his suicide anyway, so this totally makes me chuckle. Cobain didn't care about his fans enough to keep living, so we shouldn't care when we make a mockery of everything he stood for.
This is messed up on so many levels.
Well, if you ask me, the game with the best song list is the game that spawned it all; the first Guitar Hero. Almost every song on that list is a classic; Black Sabbath, Pantera, Ozzy, Queen, Joan Jett... You get the idea!
Anyone who hears the tracks will want to play it, the tracks are stretching many genres and are all familiar and rocking.
With game two, I felt the quality really dropped in my mind. Sure we had us some Kiss, the Sabbath was still there and some Gn'R, but a lot of the tracks were either just straight of top lists regardless of lasting power or anything, or more B-rate classics.
Guitar Hero 3? Come on; the Killers, Slipknot, AFI (or was it another band like that? I don't remember) and so on... Sure there was Alice and Slayer and all that, but track-to-track, there wasn't a lot of meat on those bones.
The first game, when I played it with my buddies we'd play mostly any track. With game two, that dropped to five or so. Game three, the set list was so much larger, but there was still only five to ten songs I'd actually enjoy to play.
I was a bit disappointed not to see you in the DLC vids again this week, elfbot. Are you going to be in any full-band vids for GH5?

I couldn't care less about Kurt Cobain...
Hey, Kurt Cobain killed himself because he was afraid of his music fueling a bland corporate mechanism. So if anything says bland corporate mechanism more than Guitar Hero, let me know.
Damn, this is shameful. I really don't like seeing any dead people in these games. I think Jimi Hendrix was worse because he just strolled on stage like nothing ever happened but damn, Cobain would not be happy.
It's just tasteless. Really, all they keep presenting just keeps me further and further away from GH 5. I sure hope there's no Johnny Cash in the same poses we've seen Cobain doing.
I'm not sure what he's referring to, playing music with Avatars or his movements while singing...both are equally horrifying in my opinion.
Any thoughts of picking this up are out the window now. Sticking with Rock Band thanks.
" It's bizzarre. And kind of uncomfortable. I mean, most, if not all, of the other dead musicians in these games didn't commit suicide. "I'm not so sure how much it has to do with that, but just that any musician singing a song that is so far from their style just seems wrong. Try picturing Ozzy up there instead of Kurt. Ozzy's not even dead, and him doing a b-boy pose, or singing Bon Jovi would still freak me the hell out.
Well, for some people it's not about the interface, it's about the MUSIC. I have no idea what the Guitar Hero 5 setlist looks like (I feel like I've had my share of rythm gaming with the first three Guitar Hero games as well as the Metallica spin-off), but I have kept an eye on the Rock Band one, and I've got more fingers on one hand than they have songs that are appealing to me.
I don't care about the graphics or modern multiplayer or whatever new things they churn up: if you ain't got the music I won't be buying the game.
Thats just...wrong, so very very wrong...

Cobain isn't the only horrible thing in this video. Invisible instruments is the stupidest idea i've ever heard of... and seeing an avatar next to a fully polygonal model just looks SO FUCKING WEIRD.
Man, how does Neversoft get away with stupid shit like this and have people who still like Guitar Hero better than Rock Band?
I don't know; it's just silly fun. I thought to the whole point of the grunge era was to just say "I don't really care, I'll just do whatever I feel like". This certainly seems to fit that message to me.
Having a grunge rocker promote styles going against that attitude though, that's another story. But, honestly, I think it would be the people on the recieving end feeling upset at that point.
First the mug, now this...
Not sacrilege or anything, but surely "a shot to the heart". It's like putting a digital Bill Hicks in an episode of Everybody Loves Raymond.
This is just wrong. 4 Cobain's with invisible instruments? It went from being kind of a cool tribute to him to a joke without respect.
Kurt just rolled in his grave, and I trough up in my mouth after seeing the Virtual Kurt sing a Bon Jovi song......
It ain't right.
" oh god... this is why I play Rock Band. "
The avatars bother me more than anything else in this video. Seriously they could not have thought that it looked alright. Not ok.
oh god... this is why I play Rock Band.
Oh god....... "YEAAAAA BOYYYYY!" hahaha
Too soon, man. Too soon.
This is still stupid.
GH is getting sad
" Three Kurt Cobains with invisible instruments, performing a Megadeth song! What? Too soon?"
old news jeff, come on. can some mod lock this?
Also, it's four Cobains playing megadeth. I'm willing to bet that he looks a lot more like the drummer these days.
Giant Bomb User of the Minute skrutop posted this video of Guitar Hero 5 on the boards this morning. It's a bunch of footage of Virtual Kurt Cobain doing a bunch of stuff that Real Kurt Cobain would have probably needed two shotguns to cope with.
