Guitar Hero is Not Dead Yet, Thanks to You!

Thanks to massive fan support, (or an overwhelming desire to cash in) DLC for the Guitar Hero franchise is not quite dead yet.  We previously reported that Activision had dissolved their Guitar Hero division in response to the poor performance of music games in general.   New DLC was no longer going to be available after February.  It seems that pumping out a new game every couple of months has repercussions when considering the rule of supply and demand.  (When's that new Call of Duty game coming out again?)

DJ Hero 2 Released Today, Online Demo and First DLC Revealed

If you like your music games with a bit less metal and a bit more crossfading, you'll be glad to know that DJ Hero 2 is on store shelves starting today.  Up to two turntables and a vocalist can team up to... er, spin that record, babe.  If you're undecided about the game, you can try a browser based demo, using the mouse and keyboard to simulate the true turntable experience.  It's actually pretty fun by itself, though I can't compare it to the real controller as I've never used one.

Mix It Up With A Friend in DJ Hero 2's Freestyle Modes

DJ Hero 2 is headed your way next month, but we've got a new gameplay video for you to check out right now.  It's all about the details of the revamped Freestyle mode, and details all the options players will have at their literal fingertips.  Crossfading, scratching, and sampling are all available, letting players mix their music creatively without worrying about gameplay elements at all.  This gives a more realistic DJ experience, where the player is actually using the controller as an instrument.  There's also a tidbit about two-player co-op Freestyle, where you and a friend can draw inspiration from each other to create the perfect mix.  Definitely worth checking out if you are a DJ Hero fan.
