It's a video. Watch it.
First, because I'm utterly fascinated with both foreign girls AND spunky indie girls; Superbus lead Jennifer Ayache is the epitome of everything I love about women, and as soon as I'm done with this Cherry Coke, I'm going to make her my wife.
Second, that video proves why Guitar Hero III trumps Rock Band in Ol' Nexy's Book o' Games. Not only does RB lose points for having fewer (good) tracks than GHIII, but GHIII is the first videogame in almost a decade to introduce me to a new artist who I immediately develop a strong desire to leave my country for.
Roger Daltrey never made me want to leave America, though in all fairness, David Caruso sorta does.
Games. Whatever ...
Remember 1998? Remember how Armageddon and Deep Impact hit theaters almost simultaneously? That's how I feel about the Guitar Hero III vs Rock Band question. Both games are rife with American rock, both films had stories about large rocks destroying life on Earth (and how it might affect America), but in the end one of them had Elijah Wood and the other had Bruce Willis (who, for the purposes of this metaphor, will represent the superior soundtrack in GHIII). Once that's taken into consideration, even with the presence of Ben Affleck (metaphorically GHIII's lack of excess instruments, also metaphorically the bomb in Phantoms) and that shitty Aerosmith song (representative of the shitty Aerosmith song in GHIII), GuitArmageddon III comes out on top. You can't argue with math.
Oh, and did I forget to mention that Morgan Freeman is an unlockable character in Rock Band? (He isn't. That would have been a lie.)
Ok, we showed you ours, now you show us yours. That's how this game is played!!!
It is late. I am full of second-run turkey and ginger ale. The fireplace behind me is crackling out its last and the snow is piling up outside. Good thing there's plenty of warm game systems to keep us all toasty this holiday...more
There's no reason for the above image other than my own personal amusement. Carry on. Destructoid played games during the last 7 Earth-standard days. You would refer to this specific quantity of time as a "week" and we do the...more
Mind not that there exists such a thing as a "behind-the-scenes" interview for a commercial. If that has to be a thing, let them all have Conan O'Brien in them. We played games at Destructoid during the last week and we're itching to tell you all about it. Keep reading and you'll find out what the best console audio visualizer is. The answer may surprise you.more
