Full Guitar Hero 5 Details And Set List: Get Your Popcorn Ready!

gh5-coverSeriously..Pop some popcorn because We've got the FULL scoop on GH5 dropping next month.

Let's first talk features: like all 85 songs included on the disc being available from the start. Also Two new modes have been announced for the game. "Party Play" mode, which allows players to jump into a band or drop out even in the middle of a song, and switch instruments or difficulty levels while playing.

The second feature is a "RockFest" mode, which can be played by four players locally or eight online, with several sub-modes that influence how the game is played. For example, in the "Momentum" mode, the game adjusts the difficulty of the note track based on how well the player is playing, with more points rewarded by staying at the "Expert" difficulty. Other sub-modes of RockFest include "Elimination" in which the worst player is dropped periodically, "Perfectionist" where only certain sections of a song count towards points, "Do-or-Die" which forces a player to wait a brief time if they miss a note, and "Streakers" that rewards the player for long strings of consecutive notes.

Screenshots? Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 Does It Better

Marvel: Ultimate Alliance was a comic-book fan's videogame wet dream. A solid collection of Marvel heroes put into a huge and all-encompassing plot with fully destructible environments. Really, you couldn't ask for more (though we are waiting for DC to follow suit - get on the ball). Like X-Men Legends, Marvel: Ultimate Alliance was begging for a sequel. Rather, the fans were begging for a sequel, because you just can't top a game where you can jump from controlling Deadpool to Captain America to Blade and then finally to Thor. That's just too awesome. Well, Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2 is kicking up the awesome with two 3D screenshots and a trailer (see below).

EA Pokes Fun at Christians for "Dante's Inferno" Marketing

Earlier today, many game blogs were reporting on and taking pictures of a group of Christian protesters gathering outside of E3 to protest Dante's Inferno, EA's upcoming game based on Dante's classic Divine Comedy. The protesters were holding up ludicrous signs like "EA = Electronic Antichrist" and "Hell is not a game," even talking to reporters to explain how the game is disrespectful to the Bible.

Of course, many are quick to be skeptical of the protest, correctly guessing that this is just EA's idea of viral marketing.

nesPod: The iPod Inside a NES Controller

To put in a language easily understandable on the Internet, this goes a little something like this: Yo Dawg, I herd you like iPods, so I put an iPod in yo -- Okay, you know what? I'm sorry. Let's not do that ever again.

RecycledGamer made this custom iPod by putting an iPod Mini into a classic NES controller. The result is pretty cool mod.

Twitter? Facebook? Motion Capture? Xbox Unleashes Bombshells At E3

xbox-natal

It came from E3 and it came on strong. Microsoft has taken its proverbial punch at its biggest competitor, the Nintendo Wii. "Project Natal" is full range motion capture; and I mean FULL RANGE. It blows the Wii out of the water. The system will operate with you as the controller. This is among the many other things that Microsoft has added in and will add upon to its 360.

Sony Reveals PSP-Go, Getting Rid Of UMD

That's right! This new PSP-Go has done away with the UMD optical drive for good! With no more UMD drive, the new PSP-Go is lighter than the original, which also means it will boast a longer battery life as well. The PSP-Go rocks a 3.8" screen, 16GB of internal memory and Bluetooth technology. No UMD can only mean one thing...Fully downloadable games from the PS Store.

Say Goodbye to "The Matrix"... Again

matrixonline

Sony Online Entertainment has announced that they will be closing down The Matrix Online servers on July 31st, thus ending the four year long continuation of the Matrix saga. A friend of mine put it best: "I can only imagine how frustrated all four players feel about this."

But seriously, though. Despite the fact that it never became a huge hit, it was an ambitious undertaking to continue the movies' storyline in real time via an online video game. Apparently they killed off Morpheus. If there any of its players reading this, we'd like to hear from you.
