    Meh, this is on topic enough for this thread, anyways, I hadn't heard of this game until you just mentioned it. So, I looked into it, hoping that it would look cool, but that just isn't the case. The look of the game is unimpressive, I understand disc swapping is neccecary, but come on, everything they've shown is lame. Speaking of that, the dance charts on the couple videos I've seen are also lame. VERY easy, and the only thing they are with the music to is the beat. When the song stops, or vocals stop, or anything like that, arrows are still going up the screen. Randomly generating such a thing is very hard, if not impossible, to do, and I dont know why they bothered, because it just dosn't look at all impressive. Its been delayed quite a bit from what I can gather, and I can only hope they are coming up with a better way for the arrows to generate, as I would just love such a thing. I just dont see it happening.

    GH would be impossible to import some mp3 because you would need to isolate a guitar track and that just can't happen without lots of human discression. now ddr could by isolating the beat and rythm.

    great news, played the 1st game enough to no it's a better game/controller then most gun games (super sccpe anyone?)

    In the fact that an auto generator exists, yes, you were. I think 'how well does it work' would be the next step after that, because if it dosn't work well, it isn't going to sell, and wouldn't matter. A GOOD generator that can do what step coders can do would be great, but that wont happen.

    this game needs some Dragonforce or its crap

    that is if the cover band can get anywhere close to the guitar work in Dragonforce I wanna play Through the Fire and the Flames in GH and falling to my knees holding the guitar up and wailing like an idiot.

    We all knew this would be coming along eventually. Now we just need a track listing. And by God, there had better be some Aerosmith this time!!!

    well there is a better possibility this time around to get the bigger names. You have to remember the first time around they weren't sure how well it would sell, so they had a decent budget, but not enough to get songs from people like Aerosmith, Led Zep, and Pink Floyd. I know some people are saying what about Ozzy since he is big, he gives his songs out like candy, especially towards games. Also since the game has gotten a lot more fame, those big ticket stars and their record companies will say "Hey this game can sell my records!!", so it is very possible to see a lot of big ticket stars bone up and give their songs at a decent price for them to use.

    Copy/paste from Penny Arcade a couple days ago:

    Just got an E3 PR blurb for Guitar Hero 2, and I was overjoyed to hear that it listed a few of the playable songs on the new game. Observe:The top-secret sequel song list remains firmly in the rock domain,with more than 55 songs being featured in the next installment.Confirmed for E3 are seven playable tracks including: "PsychobillyFreakout," "Strutter," "Who Was in My Room Last Night," "You ReallyGot Me," "War Pigs," "YYZ" and "Arterial Black." Also confirmed arein-game appearances by returning guitar hero Judy Nails and the newRockabilly guitarist. For those of you playing the home game, we're talking about Reverend Horton Heat, KISS, Butthole Surfers, Van Halen, Black Sabbath, and Rush. Looks like Drist is back in, too. Pretty big news.Thought you might be interested.(CW)TB
    Rush's YYZ!!!?! Jesus Tapdancing Christ.
    RIP bargora, you will be greatly missed.That is how we do things on Giedion Prime.

    Take this for what you will, but I was talking with an employee at one of my area EBs the other day about GH. He told me he's heard that Van Halen, Kiss, Metallica, and AC/DC songs will be in the new game.

    He said it was just something he heard, so he doesn't know if it's true. I hope it is, though. I'd love to be able to play Seek and Destroy, or Back in Black.

    Just please, please, gimme some Aerosmith!

    Those bands being in GH2 are pretty likely, but there's absolutely no way that employee wasn't talking out of his ass. The song list is one of the most closely guarded things in the business right now.

    Speaking of which, there's another rumor going around that the FULL song list is gonna be revealed at E3. I don't see this happening, but it'd be pretty awesome to find out so soon (and it'd make the wait that much more difficult).

    Also, appearantly the pre-order price for this is $89.99. They've already confirmed that there won't be any changes made to the guitar, so I wonder what the big change in price is about.

    Hmm...weird about the price. From what I heard, the guitar from the first one will work fine with the second. Are they still holding true to that? In that same interview I remember them mentioning the game will now have rhythm tracks as well as bass. Ugh...I'd feel sorry for the poor bastard who gets stuck playing the bass track ;D.

    If I had to guess, I'd say that the guitar is going to be a completely different design. Same buttons, same whammy bar and strumming stuff, but a new look. Flying V, perhaps - or a Les Paul design. Man, that would be sweet.

    Cool, I'll likely end up springing for the guitar set then ;D. The first couple of songs look great, I'm psyched to see Butthole Surfers up there! One of my favorites.

    Wow! Rush in GH!!! I was hoping they would want to be a part of this!!

    Is there any confirmation about the guitar design yet? I'd love to see a flying v or warlock, but no telling.

    Speaking of the guitar, has anybody picked up the shredder guitar yet? I've got one on the way, but am still trying to find info on it.
