    The "Guitar Hero" Game Thread

    OK, who's got the games? I got hooked on it this summer at my BIL's house, and we bought it a few days later for our PS2! We got 2 wireless guitars so we could do the Multiplayer thing. (Sam's Club, $50 each! Best deal I could find, for sure!). We only have GH2 right now, but plan to get more of them for Christmas.

    At the moment, I only play Medium difficulty. Hard is too hard! LOL

    I'm sure most real musicians find this game lame, but what can I say? I like it. I took acoustic guitar lessons about 12 years ago, and I played SLOOOOOOOW. Sucked, basically. This is much more successful for me!

    Anyone else care to admit they like this game?

    Oh yeah, who posted the link to the EVH striped panel for the controller? I couldn't find it anywhere.

    I've been playing real guitar for 15 years and I LOVE THIS GAME. Even if you play guitar for real, the game is a challenge. It's helped my dexterity for sure!!! Fun times. Guitar Hero III comes out in November I think.

    I have GHII and I love it. Never played real guitar. I've aced the Medium level but I can't seem to get the hang of the Hard level (damn orange button!!).
    I heard that they're making an all Aerosmith version of Guitar Hero. It would be cool if they made one for VH.

    My husband found some site online that claims to have hacked the whole game system for making songs, and the poster said he can load his own on there now. I have yet to see this proven, however! THAT would be SO COOL. A whole VH Guitar Heros game. Awesome!

    I'd love to send a wish list of songs to the makers of this game. Some AC/DC songs would be great! Getting the rights is probably a PITA, I bet.

    I like it when the real song is used in the game, like "Stop" by Jane's Addiction and "John the Fisherman" by Primus. Never heard the Primus song before, but my 8-y-o daughter loves it! LOL

    Some of these songs that I didn't know are awesome:
    "Who the Hell was in my room" the butthole surfers
    "John the fisherman" Primus
    "Woman" Wolfmother

    And actually it's making me appreciate songs I took for granted like;
    Message in a bottle by The Police
    Crazy on you by Heart
    Carry on wayward son by Kansas



    Anyone get the "Rock the 80's" version yet? I gotta get that one.
    And can't wait for the Aerosmith one too.

    OMG this is out of control! I can't imagine ever being able to play that. According to a poster, it's easier on a real guitar than what this guy made it! LOL

    I have a goal to play "Heart-Shaped Box" 100% in medium. There is just no good reason for me not to get 100% on this song. My mistakes are always because I've lost focus or something stupid like that.

    So last night, DH and I are playing, and wouldn't you know, I GOT 100%! But it's not on the record, because we were playing Pro Face-Off. Nice. *sigh* I also got over 200,000 points on a couple other songs, and once again, no record. MAN!

    Uh I must concur, playing the real "Eruption" is like 50x easier than that.

    My personal record is on "Message in a Bottle," I have well over 200,000 pts. There are so many notes to hit in that song, that it's easy to accumulate points.
