“It’s only one string but I rock it.”

March 13th, 2006 by Tommy Gun

I’m gonna be a Guitar Hero!

After playing Guitar Hero every other day for a couple weeks and failing at 98% on Bark at the Moon (Expert) I had just about given up, even though it was the only song I had left to pass in Career Mode (I only played BatM occassionally–it hurts). Well my friend from the Navy has been here on leave this month, so I got him addicted too. Just to show him how insane it gets on Expert, I played BatM, not expecting to actually pass it, especially since I’m way out of practice. I was even explaining it while I was playing–“See, it’s really tempting to use star power right here, but you really shouldn’t, because this isn’t even the hard part!” Maybe it was because I was a bit more relaxed this time, but I was finally able to pass it! We both screamed joyful obscenities really loudly when I did because my “rock meter” was completely in the red (i.e., zero “health” left). Terrible score, only a three star review, but I’ll take it. Considering they’ll probably double the difficulty in the sequel, I probably can’t stay happy for too long.

    Damn you, my record is 97% on BatM. So close. My only question: Can the Grim Ripper use the unlocked?

    Edit: Sorry, I’m an idiot. For whatever reason I was thinking of the Scythe, which is his default guitar. It won’t let you switch. So no, he can’t use it.

    How long did it take you to master the game on Expert?

    Well it was probably took about a month to get good enough to pass most of the expert songs, since I was just learning it (and didn’t play 5 hours a day or anything). I beat Guitar Hero 2 on expert in 3 days, though. But I’m still far from mastering it.

  5. Woah, battle axe loooks freaking nice. I’m too much of a loser and didnt even get guitar hero, i think i might get it. Scratch that, I know i might get it.
