DJ HERO gameplay walkthrough

grandmaster-flashAnyone that knows me knows that i despise music games (Namely Guitar/Band titles), simply because they have become far too mainstream. On the other side of the coin however i do love me some Singstar and cant wait to get my hands on DJ Hero. Working in a Hip-hop station for a couple years, one picks up certain things, things like how to suck at mixing, and later on how to not suck so much. Alot of details have been released already for HERO but alot more are still on the way. The latest video demonstrates how to play the actual game, enjoy.

So far we know the likenesses of DJ Shadow, DJ Z-Trip, DJ AM and Grandmaster Flash will grace the game.

and will include tracks from
50 Cent
Beastie Boys
Bell Biv DeVoe
Benny Benassi
Billy Squier
Black Eyed Peas
Boogie Down Productions
Chuck Brown
David Bowie
Dizzee Rascal
Eric B & Rakim
Eric Prydz
Foo Fighters
Gary Numan
Grandmaster Flash
Gwen Stefani
Herbie Hancock
DJ Jazzy Jeff
Jurassic 5
Kid Cudi
LL Cool J
Marvin Gaye
Public Enemy
Rick James
Tears for Fears
The Aranbee Pop Symphony Orchestra

with many more sure to come, not to mention the inevitable DLC.

But then comes the hard part, price point, $120 for the standard edition and $200 for the badass Renegade edition. At a point like this we begin to question just how interested we really are in new game that requires the purchase of a peripheral (that will likely be outdated within the year). Unless of course some nice developer wants to send me a review version???? if you do, I’ll take the Renegade Edition

DJ HERO is scheduled to hit the PS3 XBOX360 and Wii this Oct.
