Guitar Hero II: I take a trip to Red Octane for info. on the Sequel.

Download

Right click “Save as…”

Over the past year I've given the original Guitar Hero some serious well deserved props.  I had a chance to play the original before it hit store shelves and once I picked up that guitar I knew I was hooked.  I bought more guitar hero bundles as gifts for friends and family then any other game in history.  Over the past year I also became friends with John Tam.  The executive producer for the game who just happens to be one of the most modest guys in the industry.  With Guitar Hero II preparing to hit store shelves in early November I knew it was time to make him a visit.  So I packed my Panasonic DVX100 hopped on a plane and made my first official visit to Red Octane.  Audience meet John, John Audience.  Smiley And let me introduce you to Guitar Hero II.

    The original Guitar Hero was incredibly fun and worthy of all the props you gave it.  I recall a certain shot of you playing it on Laura's moblog...a big smile and hair all over the place...good times.

    Like you, I'm totally psyched that it's coming to the 360.  It's not really necessary for the graphics...but a modern wireless guitar and downloadable tracks...that is awesome.  Have you seen some of the custom guitars that will be available when it launches?  They look amazing.  It opens up a whole new market for custom gaming peripherals.

    Great segment, Tina.  Your interview with John Tam was enjoyable, as are most of the interviews you do.  I know you don't enjoy flying so thanks for taking the time to travel all over the country for us in pursuit of game details.  I certainly appreciate it. Smiley

    I've never played a Guitar Hero, but I might just have to try it out. From what I heard in the video it has an awesome selection of songs (Motley Crue!) and it just seems like everyone is playing Guitar Hero these days. As a kid I wanted to be a little rockstar, but then didn't we all?

    Cool, cannot wait, i have seen that the last level of the game is Free bird (sounds cool !), it looks mega tough though, i do hope they have a nice selection of guitars to launch with it, and also hope it is here in the U.K in time for Chizza. LS:)

    LETZ ROCK PEOPLE!

    I agree that this does look awesome and will no doubt improve upon the original by quite a bit. I am most looking forward to seeing this come to the 360 as it would make an awesome addition by taking full advantage of the HD visuals along with the Dolby Digital surround sound.

    Keep on rockin' all...
