Guitar Hero

Yesterday I got to play Guitar Hero at darth_n_furter's place. It's the Best Game Ever.



You get a guitar with five buttons, a strummy bit and a...lever thing. And you get 30 or so modern rock songs. And you have to play along by following the notes on the screen.



It's sooooo good. Current dilemma is whether I should buy it today, or whether I should wait and buy it tomorrow.

It's fabulous, isn't it? I await the day I can get together with another of my GH-owning friends for an axe face-off with breathless anticipation...

Nope, the game and the guitar controller come bundled as a package.

Arghhghgh I've been resisting the urge to buy it even though I've been playing it loads at lunch.

It's great though isn't it :)

You should buy it, and a spare guitar so you can buy doubles.

I love love love Guitar Hero. I have finished easy and medium with 5 stars on every song, and I have finished hard. But I still can't pass Cowboys from Hell or Bark at the Moon on expert.

Hmmm, the guitar looks kind of aggressively right-handed to me. Say it ain't so, tell me they havent made it impossible for lefties....

Nope, it's fine! It's got a switch for lefties option so that the up/down stummer is OK, and the buttons aren't too bad upside down. Was thinking about you when I spotted the lefty option!

The lever thing is called a whammy bar.
