Venom 07-12-2006 16:22:22

I hope someone gets me guitar hero 2 for christmas. Funko says I won't like it, but I WANNA ROCK! ROCK!

I want to ROCK! ROCK!

Funko 07-12-2006 16:26:26

In that case, maybe you will like it.

Venom 07-12-2006 16:40:36

But what if I'm not good a rocking?

Funko 07-12-2006 16:53:08

You'll get booed

Venom 07-12-2006 18:06:28

That happens when I order lunch.

"Oh, he's going for the fries again. The fans are not going to be happy with this. Listen to that crowd reaction. He's got a side of boo birds to go with that sandwich, I'll tell you what."

I am getting it for Christmas.
And I will rock.

Chris 08-12-2006 10:14:47

I hope Venom gets it and it sucks.

Tizzy 08-12-2006 10:35:21

It can't possibly suck.
Venom playing it could suck but not the game itself.

Chris 08-12-2006 10:54:04

He will get a special 'venom only' copy that will indeed suck.

Venom 08-12-2006 12:51:16

Here's what I'm betting will happen. Someone will get me a copy without the guitar.

Funko 08-12-2006 12:51:58

:lol:

Tizzy 08-12-2006 12:56:46

Yep. That would suck :lol:

(although you can play it with a normal controller, very not good though)

Venom 08-12-2006 13:03:46

If someone gets me the game it's guaranteed to happen. Then I'll have to buy one of those awesome mods that KG has linked to.

Funko 08-12-2006 13:05:21

You can buy the normal guitar controller seperately. I got Tizzy a second one for her birthday.

fp 08-12-2006 13:21:06

Translation: I bought a second guitar for myself because I was fed up with Tizzy hogging it the whole time.

Funko 08-12-2006 14:14:16

:cute:

Venom 08-12-2006 14:40:35

I'm going to break so many of the controllers because I may not rock good, but I will rock hard.

Chris 09-12-2006 00:22:37

I will get you the limited edition chello version.

MDA 11-12-2006 18:21:18

maybe they have an atari 2600 controller you could use - it'd be really gratifying to rip the cover off it

Venom 26-12-2006 03:02:40

I got it and it had the controller. I was just rocking out some on easy but now I have to go to bed. Early flight. Game is very fun so far, but my fingers hurt.

Chris 26-12-2006 08:35:24

Stop playing with yourself.

Venom 27-04-2007 11:46:31

I forgot this thread was here. I saw a compilation of the 10 best GH thrashers. Should have linked it here.

And that kid can suck my ass.

maroule 27-04-2007 15:20:31

he should start early if he wants to finish by 2008

Debaser 25-05-2007 01:02:33

Track list for guitar hero 3 looks sweet.

* Paint It Black (by The Rolling Stones)
* Cherub Rock (by Smashing Pumpkins)
* Sabotage (by Beastie Boys)
* The Metal (by Tenacious D)
* My Name is Jonas (by Weezer)
* Knights of Cydonia (by Muse)
* Rock And Roll All Nite (as made famous by Kiss)
* School’s Out (as made famous by Alice Cooper)
* Slow Ride (as made famous by Fog Hat)
* Cult of Personality (by Living Colour)
* Barracuda (as made famous by Heart)

Most formats will come with a Les Paul controller, while the PS version will have an Eddie Van Halen style Kramer guitar.

Funko 25-05-2007 07:46:54

The ones that say "by xxx" as opposed to "as made famous by xxx" is the original music right?

Public AE's AE 25-05-2007 09:55:53

I am not a big fan of game by numbers, personally I prefer games that actually let you do stuff.

I don't know, I just copied and pasted from somewhere else. Is that how it worked before? Makes sense I suppose.

Funko 25-05-2007 13:36:13

Well yes, but so far only one track out of 2 games has been the original music, that looks like a lot more people have submitted theirs

Venom 25-05-2007 13:48:06

I can believe Living Colour are in need of a paycheck.

You know, I finally played this on saturday night. Proved to me once and for all how uncoordinated I am. :lol:

I think I scored 75% on an easy track. "Slow Ride" I think, though I may be completely wrong there. Kinda inspired me to maybe go out and grab a copy for myself.

MDA 08-09-2008 13:35:52

Easy sometimes isn't so easy - sometimes your ears tell your fingers they should be doing something on easy, but because its "easy", they leave that part out of what comes down the screen.

Was watching my sister's boyfriend play Aerosmith, and he kept getting burned that way. Maybe that only happens if you've played on other difficulties first.

Funko 08-09-2008 13:38:34

It happens if you know roughly how to play the song properly anyway.

Greg W 08-09-2008 14:37:19

Oh, I must admit that I didn't think 75% was actually that bad for my very first go. God I felt unco though. :cute:

alsieboo 20-09-2008 17:40:33

I kick ass at legends on easy, but put it on medium and I suck donkey balls. Still love it though. Rockband next!!!

Greg W 26-09-2008 14:11:22

Well, bought myself Guitar Hero: Aerosmith.

And got a good speech from the sales girl about World Tour. Now that sounds interesting. Guitars, drums, and a microphone...

Will be interesting though, cos for some odd reason, I have always thought that drumming would be harder than guitar. Now I guess I'll have a chance to get what is most likely a completely useless comparison. :beer:

MattHiggs 05-12-2008 17:59:13

I got World Tour last week. I've completed the Medium Career and I'm about 30% of the way through on hard now (on Guitar).

I used to play a Les Paul a long time ago so I think that has helped a little but I'm still pretty shit.

Greg W 06-12-2008 00:14:13

Heh. I reckon you're doing well getting that far. I got to the first duel on Easy and got stuck. So if you're shit, I must be a massive pile of shit. :(

MattHiggs 06-12-2008 00:47:13

:o

Asher 10-12-2008 06:42:37

Rock Band 2 rocks

MattHiggs 10-12-2008 11:27:06

I was weighing up which one to buy and I went for Guitar Hero in the end as they did the guitar and game for £55. Unfortunately I didn't know about all the DLC for Rock Band so I'm planning on completing expert on GH:WT then swapping it for RB2.

The online band mode is great fun though and I've heard it's even better in RB2.

alsieboo 08-01-2009 01:55:11

One of my friends bought GH World tour just after Christmas and I absolutely love it! We saw the new year in by playing it, need a lot more practice on the drums though. I can't do star power on drums because I get confused and forget which colours are which :( But I love that game more than anything in the world.

Asher 13-01-2009 01:32:30

I got GHWT for xmas to complement RB2, mostly for the tracks. RB2 is absolutely the better game.

protein 13-01-2009 14:54:55

serious industry people are predicting that bands will favor releasing tunes on guitar hero rather than traditional singles.

i think that's an awful thought, particularly as a lot of the best music doesn't have guitars.
