OK, so this is not really news, and it's not really opinion, but I just wanted to say a big hell yeah to the upcoming Guitar Hero: Metallica that's due out on at the end of March. Having just seen the tracklisting I can say I am wetting my pants and pumping my fists (there's an image) in anticipation. As much as I love Guitar Hero, there's a little too much filler on some of the discs for me, but I can honestly say that I would be happy listening to and playing most of the tracks on this version.
For those of you who haven't seen, the game will include 28 Metallica tracks (31 on Wii and PS2 owing to the lack of DLC) and 21 from bands who have inspired Metallica over the years. There's also an Expert-Plus mode to really get those fingers going, although having struggled to even master half of GH World Tour on Expert, this prospect terrifies me. If my fingers are able to type after the metal meltdown, prepare yourselves for a review.
