This comes from the ESRB listing for Guitar Hero 5, which (strangely enough) doesn’t contain a mention of a Wii version. Of course, an iteration for Nintendo’s console has already been confirmed, so don’t worry!

Guitar Hero 5

Platform: Windows PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3

Rating: Teen

Content descriptors: Mild Lyrics, Mild Suggestive Themes

Rating summary: This is a music and rhythm simulation game in which players can perform songs using on-screen avatars with various instruments. Players simulate playing guitar, bass, or drums and are scored based on the accuracy of notes hit. Some avatars’ tattoo designs depict women in provocative poses and clothing (e.g., a fantastical succubus with cleavage and panties); a video montage depicts women wearing tight outfits as they pole-dance. Some song lyrics contain expletives (e.g., “damned” and “hell”) or suggestive content (e.g., “I’m so horny,” “He’s gonna do another strip tease,” “Your sex is on fire”). Alcohol and tobacco are also referenced in some songs (e.g., “Wanna get a belly full o’ beer” and “Light me up that cigarette”).

We’re six days away from the release of High Voltage’s “The Conduit”, and amidst the flurry of last minute pre-orders and excited fans comes a few cool new details regarding some of The Conduit’s weapons. Take a look:


In an interview with, Nintendo President Satoru Iwata spoke briefly about Microsoft’s new motion tech, “Project Natal”, citing that Nintendo considered the option of using a camera with the Wii, but concluded that accelerometers were a more efficient way to get where they wanted to get with the Wiimotes.

“Until they say when they’re releasing it, how much it costs and what software it comes with, we won’t know whether that is the route we should have taken. However… I think they couldn’t choose to release exactly the same thing.”

“We can do anything. We’ve got some very, very talented guys. And it just takes time. And dedication. We have the dedication. It would just be, ‘yes, here’s lots of money. Go make this for the PS3.’ [And we would say] ‘Thank you publisher, we will.’” – High Voltage’s Dave Pellas

I’m not sure how I would feel about these games moving to another platform. On one hand, I’d love for more people to get the chance to play these games (if they turn out to be any good), but on the other hand, the more exclusives the Wii has the more core gamers it’ll draw in. Thoughts, anyone?


E3 Day 1 – Wii and DS Overview

Every year game developers from across the globe gather at what can be called the biggest video game convention in the world to showcase what they believe to be their top quality products. In past years this is where games like The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess and the Sony Playstation 3 console were announced, and this year should be no different. With rumors circulating of new Mario’s or new Zelda’s among others, E3 2009 promises to be just as good, if not better, than previous outings.
