Posted on May 10, 2007, Stephany Update: Guitar Hero Rocks the 80's Playlist
Ok, it is official – Guitar Hero Rocks the 80′s is no longer in quasi-rumor land. It is really happening, and seven song titles have been released. Please feel free to critique the following songs:
Round and Round Ã¢$” Ratt (LOL)
Holy Diver Ã¢$” Dio (WICKED!)
I Want Candy Ã¢$” Bow Wow Wow (RETCH)
Heat of the Moment Ã¢$” Asia (and now you find yourself in ’82Ã¢$¦. Tum-tum-tum-TUM)
Mental Health Ã¢$” Quiet Riot (What Ã¢$” no Cum on Feel the Noise?)
That illustrious list will be the Ã¢$Ëœmade famous by’ playables on the game, original songs will be more palatable, for instance: “I Ran” (Flock of Seagulls), and “I Wanna Rock” (Twisted Sister). Please note that I was being sarcastic when I said Ã¢$Ëœpalatable’. There will be retro rock venues, unlockables, and extreme modes for the all powerful guitar god that you are!
Dusty Welch, the head of Octane Publishing was quoted as saying: “The 80s features an amazing variety of rock genres from hair metal to punk to new wave, and our dedicated Guitar Hero fans will definitely appreciate the opportunity to play all the new and exciting content we’ve added.” Alright Dusty! I am so there dude! Oh, and could you please include some Iron Maiden in the mix Ã¢$” maybe a little Flight of Icarus? Ahhhhh.. The power chord pleasureÃ¢$¦. much more refreshing than altoids!
As stated in a previous post, GH 80′s is being developed by Harmonix, which is now owned by MTV who is producing a rival called Rock Band with their minions Electronic Arts. Here is where it gets REALLY confusing though Ã¢$” Neversoft is now the developer for Guitar Hero III which is suppose to land on shelves some time this year. Is that a brain scrambler or what Ã¢$” Guitar Hero is being passed around like Ã¢$” well, I won’t say. One more thing, to those of you who understood the ‘Heat of the Moment’ aside up there, you are just as big of a 80′s nerd as me.
