Guitar Hero


Recommended Posts

For those of you who don't have kids in your midst, there is a new craze amongst them.


Comprised of a video game and a mock-up Gibson SG.


You have to hit notes and chords using the five color-coded buttons on the top of the fret bar.

You practice, then you get gigs, there's even a battle of the bands. If you're good enough, the audience calls for an encore. This game (Guitar Hero II) was preceded by Guitar Hero

YES!! :rockon: Guitar Hero is cool. I haven't picked up the second yet (still have super hard mode to beat on the original... ugh -____-). I imagine that it'd be awesome at a party, but man, those guitar controllers are so expensive...

I remember I was playing Ziggy Stardust on the original when the last new year set in. :P

I got this game for my kids for Christmas. At least that's what I told them. I actually bought it so I could play it! I stumbled upon one in a store before Christmas and my wife had to drag me away from it. Now, everybody in the house, including her, is hooked. Great game.

Ahh Guitar Hero, I beat the first one on expert and the second one on hard. I plan to work on expert but as for right now there are other games that need my attention. It is a great game though but they need some better songs on there. I mean where is AC/DC? Some of the songs on there are good but there are better ones by those artists too. I want Tool to be on a Guitar Hero 3. What happened to Jimmy in Guitar Hero 2? I mean how hard is it to find a good song by him? Voodoo Child, All Along the Watch Tower, Purple Haze...need I say more? What about Led Zeppelin i mean you've got Kashmir, Achilles last stand, stairway. War Pigs is a good song by Black Sabbath but there is also N.I.B, Paranoid, The Wizard. Can anyone say that they dont love any of the songs I just named? Didn't think so. I propose that every one make a list of songs they want on guitar hero and post it here on this comment board. That is what i will do...later though. Then we could send it to wavegroup and possibly make guitar hero 3 awesome....maybe...I dont know though it depends on the response I get from this comment.

If I recall, some groups outright refused to have their songs on the game (at least, that's what I remember one of the creators saying in an interview). I don't get why they couldn't get more Hendrix on the second one, since the first one had Spanish Castle Magic. Maybe licensing is expensive or something, and they didn't want to cut into the budget.

At least the new one has TROGDOOOOOOOOOOOOORRRR!!!

Burninating the countryside, burninating the peasants...
