Activision Announces Four New ''Hero'' Games
Written Thursday, May 07, 2009 By Alan Pettit
View author's profile

You know, when the whole music-as-a-video-game thing hit the scene, it was pretty awesome. Even people who were terrible as real musicians had the chance to feel like they could shred the guitar, and later beat the skins or "slappa da bayass" (I hope everyone has seen I Love You, Man to get that joke).

Now though... give me a break. However, Activision can look at its sales sheet and say to themselves, "the public is still buying, so we're still funding." And then they all sip some fruity drinks on a beach I imagine. Why didn't I think of this?!

Aaaanywho, Activision has officially announced four new "Hero" branded games coming later this year. Most of them were already rumored and all but official, (some even had screenshots) but you can expect Band Hero, DJ Hero, Guitar Hero 5 and Guitar Hero: Van Halen all before the year is out. And below you can see a promo shot of the official DJ Hero "controller."

interesting concept to take it in a new direction with the DJ hero, but more of the same band and singular stuff, no thanks.

GH sucks already. Theres gonna like over 10 different ones, its 2 much, still yet to hear of any export feature.Theres a lot of tracks i wanna get for GHWT but whose to say they will work on any new ones.
ROCK BAND is best, keep it simple. As for GH smash hits, 48 tracks is terrible, RB2 had 84 tracks.
Yes RB is doing beatles and lego but hopefully those will be exportable as well.

DJ Shadow is involved in 'DJ Hero' ...
After I've read that on solesides.com it became an musthave-title.

It's funny, my friends and I sometimes joke that Rap Hero would come with a microphone for the "rapper", a turntable for the DJ, and two guns for the entourage. Still, while I applaud Activision for being somewhat innovative, I think this might be overkill. The Van Halen game is the only one I would ever think of buying . . . if I ever intended to buy a Guitar Hero game.

This is getting waaaay out of control, but I will forgive them if they make "Banjo Hero" or "Ukulele Hero"!
But yeah, they should stop before they ruin the music game genre.

And the single band games? They have made Metallica and Aerosmith and anounsed Van Halen, and I've heard Jimi Hendrix rumors but there's a hell of allot of good bands in the world so this may never end...

Yes they should stop the GUITAR hero games and leave it to Rock band. But DJ Hero looks interesting, may have some crap and annoying songs though but il get it. I could only guess a Keyboard Hero next although theyl have to add notes or something but DJ Hero is something new and different and looks interesting so give em a break

Activision.... whores, dirty filthy whores. Milking the cash cow. They apprehended the "Guitar Hero" title from Harmonix, and now they're milking it for all its worth. I refuse to purchase anymore "Hero" games, and I am considering boycotting Activision altogether. Harmonix has a better product, and the platform model works much better. I will be sticking with Harmonix products only from now on. Thanks for firming that up for me Activision. .... fraking whores.

I have a feeling that they are only making band hero so everyone would stop calling GH:WT that, but seriously if someone was new to gaming, they could easily think these are super hero games(I hope I didn't just give Activision another idea;)

DJ Hero could turn out good. Who knows.

Still, though, the fact that Activision will release totally 6 new games (inc. GH: Met & GH:SH) in Europe confuses me. Now I understand why it's said that American game developers' main concern is to get as much money as possible instead of making new innovations, in this game it is true at least.

GH5 should be one to look out for.

I just want an ultimate Guitar Hero with every amazing song EVER, along with those random crappy songs, all the songs from previous Guitar Heros, and unlimited DLC because thats what the guitar hero games do best, provide DLC.

I wouldn't necessarily say that it sucks just this whole new era of supposed "Rap", it just isn't music anymore, Run DMC, N.W.A., Funkmaster Flex,Wu-Tang Clan, that was music, nowadays, there is just swag, nothing good, as for DJ Hero, I believe it's not just going to be about rap, maybe only 10% of the game, which comes to maybe 1 Venue, but I think it's going to be some kind of club, dance, techno type stuff, but thats my opinion, Band Hero? didn't they do that with Guitar Hero World Tour? and Number 5 what they hell is this, they need to just calm down, only thing I see with possible success labeled on it, is Van Halen, but then again it could be another Aerosmith/Metallica

I'm not going to argue with you in here, but look up Immortal Technique or Wu-Tang. Listen to the lyrics. Your head might explode, because it's actually good, but your probably going to sit there and deny it because that's what most ignorant people do. BTW, I listen to mostly Rock music, but have an open enough mind to listen to other genres, and appreciate what their trying to do.

I always thought they should have called World Tour Band Hero instead, world tour makes no fucking sense.

Out of these games, I will buy GH5 if it's guitar/bass only and has a good setlist. I'm not into the band thing

Activision are ridiculous, DJ Hero? Seriously wtf, they just use the exact same concept over and over again and make profit from it. I stopped buying Guitar Hero for this reason.

GH:3 turned me off the set. RB(2) will keep me going, once I actually get my instruments back from my buddy and buy the disk for RB2. Like somebody said, gimme one disk and unlimited DLC, or the option to extract music from one game to the next, and I'm a happy camper. I don't need a new set of instruments and a new disc to keep in storage every time a larger amount of tracks comes out.

Having said that, I'll be cool to get some of the songs from GH:1-3 redone as Smash Hits, but the track list is balls-deep in a corosive liquid, so I'll stay away from that particular game as well.

DJ and Band Hero have been trademarked by Activision for a long time, this isn't news to me besides Van Halen, which I highly doubt has a large enough gamer fanbase to justify a standalone game.

Retarded, never dropped a dime on any music games, and never will.

I am officially done with Guitar hero. I'm gonna trade it in for Rock band now, where I can choose to download the extras I want rather than being raped by activision everytime I want new content. The DLC for guitar hero is lame as well.

Aerosmith should have been DLC added to a vault contained within GHIII

Metallica the same except added to GHWT

Smash hits should have been split in to 4 DLC packs and added to GHWT aswell

But no... that would be to simple, user friendly and wouldn't urge people to buy a whole nother retail disc full of shit.

FUCK YOU ACTIVISION!!!

With just 3 buttons and a scratch pad, I think the game will be way too simplistic compared to other DJ games out there. I will have to see more to see if I would like it or not. I hope DJ Hero sells well enough to make Konami want to bring out Beatmania IIDX 15th and Pop n Music 15 to Xbox 360.

Congrats on #121 and # 128 on mentioning Didgeridoo Hero! What about One Man Band Hero? Anyway, I want to clear up something. Band Hero is not gonna be the EXACT same as GHWT. Game Informer said it is supposed to be more like top-40 hits rather than our beloved hardcore rock. It still sounds gay. GH is milking, with DJ Hero, Band Hero, GH:Van Halen, and GH5 (don't forget the DS games), but so is Rock Band, with the ludicrously expensive Beatles game and the PSP version, and we all can guess RB3.

Add these four to GH:M, Smash Hits, and the two DS GH titles sceduled to release this year, and you have 8 Hero games this year.

I think its time for Activision to stop now, and save some face before these games turn out to be massive disappointments.

DJ Hero is for another whole group of gamers, so quit bashing on it. It looks good. It should have been just Van Halen and Metallica, Aerosmith was horrible.

As for Band Hero, this will be obsolete if GH5 is a band game also. If GH5 comes back to GH3 style, then fkn A, but Band Hero shouldn't even come out. All in all, I only think they actually proved milking with GHA, GHOT, GHOTD, BH and GHM. Smash Hits is for gamers to have a chance to play some of the biggest hits from the past game (I didn't get a chance to).

So basically

The Good:
GHSH
GHVH
GH5
DJ Hero (for a different crowd of gamer, not everyone likes rock/metal)

The Bad:
GH (DS)
BH

I agree with myself (#157, lol) and #165 about DJ Hero. It is not my type of music, so I won't bash it. Smash Hits will be awesome for people who missed GH1, GH2, and 80s from the now quite obsolete PS2. It will also be master tracks (!) and will add more (drums, vocals) for those who are bored with those songs. I think more classic GH songs should be released through DLC. C'mon! No Gun's & Roses is terrible and needs to be fixed. Also, the GH3 list is a little lacking.

What the hell is Band Hero compared to GHWT? And will GH5 revert to just guitar again? I'll have to try a demo of DJ Hero and look at the track list before I even consider shelling out more money to Activision.

DJ Hero- no
Band Hero- no
Van Halen- no

GH5- hopeful. i am dearly hoping it DOES revert back to just Guitar. the added instruments means a flood of dumb songs. i loved GH back when the guitar was the spotlight, not this sing-song crap we have now.

This is so stupid. Why would they make a game called Band Hero if Guitar Hero World Tour already uses the whole band.

I LOL'D Hard at that image. Thats the saddest thing I've ever seen. 3 buttons?! Are you fucking kidding me?! AND it appears there's only one vinyl, wtf!? Scratch DJ's use 2, and a cross-fader, which is obviously not in this picture, so do they even know what the fuck they're doing anymore?!

yet again.. opinionated.
Activision is showing to us as a society that their passion is making games to satisfy our wants.. which is playing plastic, but is still fun nonetheless.

Sure they are milking the almighty cash cow, but most people, like myself, couldn't care honestly. Try this stuff out in the upcoming future and then pick out its flaws. Its like judging a book by its cover, most ignorant people on here don't want to play these games because Activision is 'taking it a bit too far.' I will always be a guitar hero fan for life because I grew up with it.

In short words (^not short), play whatever you want and learn to accept things. I'll personally pick up Guitar hero 5 and Van Halen.... because I appreciate the music in all of these games, and because I hate Rock Band's

Im all for some new music games... i've been with GH through and through have rock band and gh... and this is starting to get stupid. I mean at $60 a pop even more so. DJ Hero looks interesting. I have been a supporter of Smash Hits just so i could play the master recording of freebird and the other songs with vocals and drums... but gh 5, band hero, and gh van halen? if world tour dlc doesnt transfer i say boycott... and you should be able to transfer setlists... jesus.... BAND HERO?! REALLY?!

This is why Guitar Hero will lose the war with Rockband coming out with these many games just proves they need to make money fast. Rockband is making money just sitting on there asses sending new and great songs every tuesday that must be killing Guitar Hero

You can't hate the company for wanting to make money, that's how businesses are run these days, something sells well you keep selling it until you can't sell it no more. As long as the fad continues they'll keep whoring the "hero" franchise so you better get used to it. In no time they'll have something new anyways
