New Guitar Hero III track unveiled, European songs announced at Leipzig

9:52 AM on 08.15.2007 // Nick Chester

"She Bangs the Drums," as made famous by The Stone Roses, was unveiled as a new playable Guitar Hero III song yesterday during an exclusive hour-long screening at Edinburgh Interactive Festival. The song comes off of the 1989 self-titled The Stone Roses album, a record which had (and has) the British music press creaming all over themselves.

This was the first time members of the British public were able to get their hands on the game, witnessing first hand the new boss battles, as well as multiplayer modes. Zach Fountain, General Manager of RedOctane Europe says the rock is not going to stop here.

"The Guitar Hero franchise has already established itself as part of mainstream pop culture," he says, "so it was a perfect place to unveil one of our UK-originated songs. The Guitar Hero road show moves from here to Leipzig, where we'll be announcing a whole new stack of European songs for Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock."

With an already solid (and surprising) track list, it'll be interesting to see what RedOctane pulls out of their hat at this year's Games Convention.

Slash's Original Boss Battle Recording
Welcome to The Jungle (by Guns N' Roses)

Yay, I got off of work early and may have Friday off! I have a sinking feeling I'm going to work 10 hours on Saturday as a result, though :/ We ran out of stuff to make stuff with so they must ship us stuff so we can ship stuff.

I have now played all 3 Witcher games. My verdict: Witcher 1 - alright, aged badly, lots of sex. Witcher 2 - good, very short, not much sex at all. Witcher 3 - Excellent in every way.

I really wish MGO had been implemented with free-roam gameplay PMC (clan) setup instead of the standard matchmaking. Imagine roaming bands of PMC's opposing each other on the battlefield. How sexy would that be?

Added a humble code to my steam account when I already had the game. Purely because the soundtrack was attached. Now I see it on 2 friends wishlists. They must never know.

What's up with taking your phone or a magazine to the toilet? Y'all need more fibre in your diet, why should a toilet visit take more than 2 minutes? What are you people doing with your asses.

It feels like each day I get up, do the rounds of my bookmarks, and am immediately brought down by kneejerk hate: new stuff, old stuff, last nights stuff, 2moros stuff, a game, a film, TV. Critical thinking is fine, but dang, pure cynicism's winning :(

Metal Gear Online, Day 2. The maps in this game are amazing. Try out all 3 classes, because they're all pretty different. Really getting the hang of the game now.

I love how Final Fantasy Record Keeper is making a big deal about being able to unlock FF XII's Vaan. I do get to unlock Ashe though, so that's cool.
