Title: Guitar Hero
Post by: OL1V3R on July 29, 2008, 04:37:43 pm
Is there anyone here, apart from me, who likes Guitar Hero? It's a game where you use a guitar controller with 5 frets and a strum bar, and you have to strum and hold a particular fret at the right time. It's a rhythm game.

Guitar Hero is a very addictive game and it's easy to pick up and play. Have any of you ever played Guitar Hero and what do you think of it?

I've played it a couple of times, but never got the chance to use the guitar controller. The PS2 controller is not particularly adept when it comes to GH3....

It's a pretty sweet game. I particularly like the song "Miss Murder".


Oh, and check this out.

Edit: Conrad didn't make 100%.

This guy (http://blog.wired.com/games/2008/07/guitar-hero-cha.html) did.

Oh yeah, that song Through the Fire and Flames... It's so difficult! I'm trying to beat that on Expert; so far I've managed to find a way to get past the intro by using two hands and elbow-strumming.

Was that video on Expert mode. If so, Conrad is an amazing player.

Hence the name of the "Inhuman Achievement" on the Xbox 360 version.

It's all right being good at Guitar Hero and all, but I think that those who can get 100% on TTFAF need to get a life.

I'm trying to beat it...

BTW Hypnotoad, if you're interested, I've made a YouTube channel with some Guitar Hero On Tour videos (just gameplay videos, my face isn't shown). It's called OL1V3R666.

GHOT is a bit uncomfortable at first mind you.

GHWT looks good. You could do Metroid songs on there in the same style as Metroid Metal.

I'll post a new thread on Guitar Hero World Tour as this is a generic Guitar Hero thread.

So, what is your favourite Guitar Hero song?


Title: Re: Guitar Hero
Post by: OL1V3R on August 14, 2008, 10:38:22 am
I'm not entirely sure; I have several favourites.

Some of my favourite sounding songs include:

3s and 7s (by Queens of the Stone Age)
When You Were Young (by The Killers)
My Name Is Jonas (by Weezer)
Stricken (by Disturbed)

I also like the song that occurs on the Lou Boss Battle.

From what I've seen, I like Baracuda and Ruby.

Miss Murder and Cliffs of Dover are my favorites. My name is Jonas is fun though.


I got GH3 for Wii!! Now, does anyone know a good place to get a cheap guitar controller? I'm struggling with the awkward Wiimote controls.

Maybe you should have got it from Gamestation - the last time I checked, it was 44.99 with the guitar.

Why didn't you buy the game with the guitar. The guitar controller is the best way to play the game.

That's a redux of "Devil wen't down to Georgia"

One of my favourites too, along with Nights of Cydonia, Holiday in Cambodia and Paranoid

At the time, I didn't realize how bad the controls for the wiimote were. Knights of Cydonia on hard is impossible. Literally. Besides that, I got it secondhand, not having the cash for the bundle pack.

I found a way to hold the wiimote that helps for control, though. Thumb on green (B), first finger on red (d-pad left), middle finger on yellow (A), and the first and middle finger on the other hand for blue (1) and orange (2). I'll get carpal tunnel before I graduate.

And, considering I don't have a job, cheap for me would be $30-$45. Which would probably be around 25-35 euros. Also, the only store selling games specifically within 50 miles is a used game store.

Ah, I understand. Problem is, the guitar controller is the best way to play the game so it helps to have the cash.

I got GH for DS!! It has four frets and you strum with a guitar-pick version of the stylus. Lower quality and fewer songs, but that's only to be expected for something portable. They actually did an amazing job.


And it looks like I'm going to get a guitar controller for my birthday. Which I have difficulty believing myself. My parents have dropped so many hints you'd have to be an idiot to not figure it out, though.

I played GHOT and I found it quite uncomfortable. The bigger Guitar Hero's are more comfortable.

Even that can be awkward. Hopefully Activision address the issue for Decades.

When you do, we should exchange friend codes!


Title: Re: Guitar Hero

He hasn't been on lately. Try going on Best of Three Worlds to see if you can exchange there.


Title: Re: Guitar Hero
Post by: Ratiqu on September 03, 2008, 05:25:41 pm
Yeah, sorry I haven't been on as much. BoTW is sucking me in....


But I would be glad to exchange codes. Gets a bit boring with no one else to play with. As do most games. Which is what WiFi is for.

I'm not surprised seeing as there are a lot of Fire Emblem fans on there.
