The final song list for next month's Guitar Hero Smash Hits has made it to the internet. Previously, the songs included from the original Guitar Hero, as well as Guitar Hero 2, had been revealed. Now, the contributions from GH3, Rocks the 80s, and even a song from the Aerosmith disc are all included.
When someone works for over ten years on the same project, well their portfolio tends to not have a lot in it. With all of 3D Realms let go with the studio's closure, there are plenty of artists looking for a job now, and most of them have a portfolio filled with Duke Nukem Forever goodies.
Be warned, readers. I am torn about whether or not I should even write this article. I like to tie in my weekly columns with new game releases, or movies, as you may have noticed. Digging through the Co-Optimus database, only the new D-A-C game and an older Trek game I hadn't played turned up. Since I prefer to have actually played the games I write about, I had to look elsewhere. Imagine my surprise when I rediscovered an arcade lightgun shooter based on Star Trek Voyager after a quick Google search. I had totally forgotten I had ever played it, which didn't bode well. Perhaps it was not the best choice for Co-Op Classics, perhaps, but hey, sometimes you just have to boldly go.
PlayStation 3 and PC owners will be treated later this year to a truly unique title coming from developer Frozenbyte. The game is called Trine, and its a fantasy based puzzle platformer. All the puzzles in the game rely on real work physics. Players take control of three characters: the wizard, the thief and the warrior.
The stories for this week:
Is Star Trek on your plans this weekend? I know it's on some of ours.
A few days ago we told you about the Terminator Salvation Twitter game. It's a unique mix of social networking and guerilla marketing. Not content with taking over one social network, Skynet is expanding to the likes of Facebook and the iPhone.
Playlogic has announced a new port of their horror title Obscure: The Aftermath. The game was previously available on the PC, Wii and PS2 and featured a two player co-op mode. The new version will be released later this year on the PSP, and will retain the co-op modes of the console counterparts. What's even better is the portable version of this game will also support drop-in and drop-out play! Now you can run in fear without ruining your friend's game.
