Guitar Hero 3
And HMX gave the site $2000. It was very generous. But don't you think that also gave HMX some good PR?
Scorehero was started up by... umm Jcirri, I believe his name is, Back when I was active in the GH forum. He was just one of us. He has "Gone Hollywood" just like Axl Rose. Screw him and his soon to be obsolete score site. We'll see how well he does when online leader boards are the rule of thumb.
And I think HMX gave him that money way back before the buyout. Nice way to show gratitude there score zero's.
Rock band, definitely. For me the choice is weighted 90% gameplay 10% setlist. Even if I didn't know any of the songs on RB and loved every song on the GHIII setlist, I'd still choose RB.
I mean, I loved guitar freaks (before GH came out) even when most of the tracks were whacky j-pop songs I'd never heard before. It was fun to play regardless. GHIII has the advantage of specializing themselves for one instrument, but RB has expanded the gameplay so much I could care less about setlists at this point.
