So, Guitar hero is no more. In a move bought on by Activision, which sees the franchise being axed along with several other titles including True Crime - Hong Kong. Having only played Guitar Hero once or twice in the past, i for one don't really care about the franchise. I know many people do care and all that, but Guitar Hero for me isn't something i can play on a regular basis. I did read in a press-release about how many versions of Guitar Hero do you need?. Releasing one or two versions would have been great, with the updated play-lists being released as DLC, as many games in my opinion should do (i'm looking at you Fifa and all the other sporting titles).
But there is something i do care about, and that is the job losses in this axing. Hopefully many of these talented game programmers find work else-where within Activision/Blizzard or within a different company. And i hope none of them end up on the scrap-heap of unemployed persons.
But now, i look forwards and not backwards. With the ever-growing list of games i'm interested in well....... growing, i need a steady income to be able to purchase such titles, otherwise i think i'll be missing out on some classics. Elder Scrolls V, Arkam City, Gears 3, Skyward Sword and L.A Noire. Thats 5 titles there, equating to around £160 (more if there are Collectors Editions available for some of them (most likely with Gears atm).
