    Thought I'd move this to the appropriate forum.

    At first, I wasn't so sure this was a good idea. I mean, it's a gem on the console - but porting it to a portable system? I'd think it'd be an awful game, that lacks so much and presented poorly because of the capabilities.

    I kept my eyes out on news for Guitar Hero: On Tour - and it sure did come fast.
    I saw a trailer of the game, and was like "Woah, this could turn out nice." I really hope it does to.
    June's issue of Nintendo Power had a special segment on the game, which nicely broke down the game in detail. It's now the game I'm looking forward to the most in June 2008.

    As for buying it, I don't know. Fifty dollars seems an awful lot for a DS game, and if it gets a bad review - I might have to wait a while and pick up a second-hand copy of the game or download it and buy the attachment separately. Most likely, though, when time comes around for the game to be released - I'll be scraping up quarters around the house and do extra chores for cash to buy the game!

    I totally lost the topic. Was searching in testing for it lol.

    I think it will be fun. I had fun on the console version and just nabbed this because I had the extra cash and haven't actually purchased a DS game in months so I felt that I owed them a little green. If anything I know many people with ds lites and love GH so I can give it to someone if im not into it.

    Yeah...I'm going to buy it. I figure I'm due to buy another game legally.


    Known tracklist as of May 30:
    * designates a cover
    Subway
    Do What You Want - OK Go
    All the Small Things - blink-182
    Spiderwebs - No Doubt
    Are You Gonna Be My Girl - Jet
    We're Not Gonna Take It - Twisted Sister

    Rooftop
    All Star - Smashmouth
    Breed - Nirvana
    Jessie's Girl - Rick Springfield
    Hit Me With Your Best Shot - Pat Benatar
    This Love - Maroon 5

    Parade
    Heaven - Los Lonely Boys
    Helicopter - Bloc Party
    China Grove - The Doobie Brothers
    Rock And Roll All Nite* - Kiss
    What I Want - Daughtry

    Greek Arena
    Jet Airliner* - Steve Miller Band
    Black Magic Woman*- Santana
    Stray Cat Strut - Stray Cats
    La Grange*- ZZ Top
    Youth Gone Wild*- Skid Row

    Thats 20 out of the 25 that they said would be available

    Here is a video of a HOW TO. Shows alot of the game play and features unique to the DS version


    Also a common question is if this will work on the Phat as well as the lite. I've heard that a "spacer" will be included to make it useful with the phat as well. I actually am really looking foward to this game.

    I doubt it.
    I'm sure that replacing the song files would be easy to do, but have you taken in mind that you'd have to re-design the level so that the level and song corrolate? If not, it'd just be a bunch of out-of-rhythmic gameplay.

    Yeah, you're better off getting the PC version. There's plenty of custom songs available.

    I'm going to buy it but purely to add to my video game collectables, won't even open it.
    If someone like cracker hacks the game to work with normal DS controls, I'll try that.

    i plan on buying it also
    but i dont think my mom will let me buy a game for 50 bucks
    especially after she sees my grades >.<
    like JPH, im probably gonna buy the attachment separately and download the rom
    at least guitar hero will make money off the attachment thing
    pretty smart way to prevent full out pirates if ya ask mee

    Cant say I am impressed that much with the soundtrack for this version, so I dont think I will buy it.

    Im gonna wait till we get some more spinoffs for it (that way the grip should be cheaper too), Guitar Hero: Legends of Rock (would tempt me) or Guitar Hero: Metallica (which is already in the works for next year, would be an instant buy if it came out on DS)

    I love that track list... I'm considering getting it for that alone, cause I suck at Guitar Hero :3

    Something unquie...and Guitar Hero has always been fun.

    It's a buy for me...even if it's not that great, the novelty factor alone is win.

    Bah, its equivalent to US$80 here... I just wish we had the game prices that the US does. $30 for a typical DS game? Hah, think equivalent $60 to get your average game here. [​IMG]

    Well it's been done for the Wii version of GHIII, why couldn't it be done for this?

    So being a left-hander... the blue button would be at my index finger and I'd have to use my little finger for yellow? [​IMG]
    Hope the settings change the most common colours around.

    Yep, I pre-ordered mine at Gamestop last week. Supposedly, hitting the stores on June 22. At least, that's what they said. Of course, that is a Sunday, so it might be the following Tuesday the 24th.
