Full Guitar Hero: World Tour Set List Released

Soulskill posted more than 6 years ago | from the rock-on dept.

Music 41

Activision finally unveiled the full 86-song track list for Guitar Hero: World Tour, which is set to come out October 26th in the US. The list contains a wide variety of artists, from Creedence Clearwater Revival to Tool to Ted Nugent. Activision also recently acquired FreeStyleGames to "develop new music-based IP," such as DJ Hero. GH:WT's set list shares 13 songs with Rock Band 2, which is due out tomorrow and may get its own reality TV show. Gamespy ranked the RB2 track list by difficulty.

Sorry! There are no comments related to the filter you selected.

Lots of tracks I've never heard of, but some really good ones too. Hotel California is included! I can see that making for some fun evenings.

Yay for the Doors (1)

Love me town times is my favorite songs from the Doors. But they didn't have a bassist, just a bass organ...

They used a bassist in some of the studio recordings.

I wonder... (1)

solcott (1002711) | more than 6 years ago | (#24991451)

Anyone want to make some bets on how many days before the game gets released people will be playing the songs in Frets on Fire?

(referring to how GH3 and GH-80s were both converted to FoF well before retail release)

While i have no love for Ted Nugent's personality or hobbies or political views, he's still a great musician and live performer, *THAT*, i do care about

Interesting track list.. (1)

Azruelli (1196669) | more than 6 years ago | (#24991787)

Some awesome tracks, others kind of meh, but all around good stuff. I see Hot for Teacher is on there, anyone else remember THAT video, now? Also.. Willie Nelson's on the road again? Didn't expect to see country, not that its a bad song, just a bit unexpected for a guitar hero game. O_o

GHWT is the only choice if you have a Wii (2, Informative)

Karma Sucks (127136) | more than 6 years ago | (#24991885)

RB for Wii is a joke, no online, no DLC. You get it all and much more with GHWT. I don't understand Harmonix's decision to gimp the Wii version of RB. I guess they are big 360 supporters... seems to be a poor choice of platform when the Wii version of GH outsold everything else.

Re:GHWT is the only choice if you have a Wii (3, Informative)

NereusRen (811533) | more than 6 years ago | (#24991943)

Rock Band 1 for Wii was a joke and a mistake, I agree. However, it has been strongly implied (if not confirmed) that Rock Band 2 will have both online play and DLC. See for example http://blog.wired.com/games/2008/08/harmonix-rock-b.html [wired.com] or http://www.joystiq.com/2008/08/06/rock-band-2-for-wii-wont-skimp-on-features/ [joystiq.com] . Since you should really be comparing GH:WT to RB2, not RB1, it's no longer an obvious choice.

Of course, I'll still be getting GH:WT for my Wii for a lot of other reasons, including a more complex drumset and these gems from the setlist announcement:
* At The Drive-In - One Armed Scissor
* Mars Volta - L'Via L'Viaquez
* Tool - Parabola
* Tool - Schism
* Tool - Vicarious

I knew Tool would have to show up in one of the games eventually, but I have to say I was very surprised to see both ATDI and The Mars Volta, two of my other favorites.

GHWT is also the only choice if you live in Europe (3, Insightful)

iapetus (24050) | more than 6 years ago | (#24992629)

With Harmonix/EA/MTV continuing their campaign of silence on the European launch of Rock Band 2, they're gifting the European market to Activision. Nice one, guys.

RB for Wii is a joke, no online, no DLC.

No online is a legit complaint. But no downloadable songs? What is a developer supposed to do with an 0.5 GB internal drive, nearly half of which is taken up by the system software?

morari (1080535) | more than 6 years ago | (#24998119)

The same thing Guitar Hero is doing with the 512mb of internal memory... use the fucking SD card reader!

If it's on the SD card, it's on BitTorrent (1)

tepples (727027) | more than 6 years ago | (#24999433)

How would this prevent purchased downloadable songs from being cracked and used with multiple copies of Guitar Hero? Look what the pirates have already done to Wii Shop Channel downloads.

Re:If it's on the SD card, it's on BitTorrent (1)

morari (1080535) | more than 6 years ago | (#25002933)

Piracy will always exist regardless. Pushing senseless restrictions upon legitimate users will do more harm to said company than a little piracy.

Besides, the Virtual Console and WiiWare files are encrypted well enough to prevent most people from pirating them.

World="US and Europe" (3, Funny)

antifoidulus (807088) | more than 6 years ago | (#24991937)

Seriously, is there even an Asian band on the list? Surely you could have found someone in Korea or Japan willing to sign.... bands such as Dir En Grey or Maximum the Hormone would be awesome IMO

Re:World="US and Europe" (1)

ya really (1257084) | more than 6 years ago | (#24992079)

Im sure they spent plenty on marketing and determined what people wanted to listen to for it. If people who bought guitar hero (a large percentage, not a handful) wanted to hear a certain genre, then they would have included it or would release a seperate game for it.

No, because Asia has Konami Session games instead of Guitar Hero and Rock Band.

'bout time they put some Steely Dan in there. But "Do It Again"? feh.

"Reelin' in the Years" would have been the far better choice. Classic, fun to play riffs all OVER that tune. Maybe next time.

No Dragonforce? (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 6 years ago | (#24993045)

Just a bunch of easy boring songs, this means I have to spend more time making my own dragonforce tracks than actually getting time to play the game :(

OMFG! (0)

Motorhead - Overkill

Thank goodness they're looking into that band's other greatness. Ace of Spades is an amazing tune but they still crank out the tunes. Check out their latest disc Motorizer for an example.

How the hell (2, Funny)

Datamonstar (845886) | more than 6 years ago | (#24993411)

did Rock Band get a reality show before Dungeons & Dragons did? the first thing I thought about when these stupid shows became popular (I.E. Survivor, actually a really GOOD game design) was taking a celebrity party through a campaign and having them act out things in character and show the gaming sessions as well. Seriously, if this can make it, if Who wants to be a superhero, for crying out loud can make it, then why not D&D?

Re:How the hell (1)

i_liek_turtles (1110703) | more than 6 years ago | (#24996847)

Airbourne FTW! (1)

AmonTheMetalhead (1277044) | more than 6 years ago | (#24997933)

Whoa! Airbourne is in there!

Airbourne are what i'd call the 'Second coming of AC/DC', they're from Down Under, they're wild, and they have that Aussie ROCK sound!

I saw them this year on Judas Priest's tour, they were the first band to play, and they paled Iced Earth, Cavalera Conspiracy Theory and even Priest themselves.

Also, Sting's cover of Manfred Mann's 'Demolition Man' is horrible

Re:Airbourne FTW! (1)

maglor_83 (856254) | more than 6 years ago | (#25005977)

Yeah unfortunately not their best song.
They also have a downloadable track for Rock Band.

i wonder if you just hit the same note over and over
