    Activision working to resolve Guitar Hero World Tour drum sensitivity issue

    User reviews of Guitar Hero World Tour aren’t so hot—it’s averaging a 5.8 on Metacritic (but nets an 87 based on “professional” reviews).

    How the game looks on the Xbox 360 Wanna know why we’re still not playing GoldenEye on Xbox Live Arcade? Blame Nintendo.
