Coming Soon: Guitars Gently Weeping
Guitar Hero and Rock Band are the latest craze with everyone these days. This is a game that I would call a casual game, no question. And big rumblings coming courtesy of EGM’s gossip monger Quartermann:
The long (And Winding Road) fight over who gets the Fab Four is near an end and it looks like the Beatles will be coming to…GUITAR HERO! No word yet on whether the Moptops get their own game, like Aerosmith did or whether they will simply be in the next Guitar Hero game. EGM cautions that this likely won’t see the (Inner) light of day (Tripper) until 2010, but as a huge Beatles fan, I am excited. I had almost given up on Guitar Hero and Rock Band, but this might pull me (Get) back into the fray.
Seriously, I have read over 50 books on the Beatles and I have every album and rare track I can find. This is big news to the benefit of (Mr. Kite) music fans everywhere, IF it turns out to be accurate. I have no reason to doubt this as I have seen Quartermann be right on a great many things from Ratchet and Clank’s downloadable game to Bioshock coming to the PS3.
That being said, what bands would you like to see get a Guitar Hero or Rock Band standalone title? My pick: Radiohead or maybe the Smiths. Those two and the Beatles are my Top Three favorite bands of all time. What do you wanna rock out to?
