For a Guitar Hero game featuring a band as legendary as Van Halen Guitar Hero: Van Halen has had surprisingly little hype -- as in almost none. There's been a reveal trailer and some stuff with it at E3, but other than that it's been all quiet on the rock n' roll front. We didn't even have an official track listing press release, which is one of those things that all GH games get (the full track list did slip out). Because of the lack of PR for the game you might interested to check out 5frets's screens of the game, which show of GH: Van Halen in detail.
A lucky gamer who lives directly next to the shipping facility that Activision evidently uses to ship their games out got his version of GH: Van Halen quicker than the rest of us thanks to his proximity and snapped a few shots. Evidently the game works exactly like GH: Metallica. On a more disappointing note, it does not seem to allow for exporting songs to GH5, which sucks. The version in the pics is the one that came free with the purchase of GH5, and considering the USPS is pretty decent at getting things out in a timely manner, that means most of you who signed up for the game should be getting the package in the mail on Monday or Tuesday.
