I see I haven’t updated in a while. Well, I made it through all in expert mode on GH 1, except (except) there’s always the “except”.....
Cowboys from Hell AND Bark at the Moon.
Since GH II came out I worked my way to expert on that one, but then I get stuck on that Stray Cats song… Rock this town… I don’t know why cuz it doesn’t seem that hard. I’m just uncoordinated I guess. Anyways, the disk got scratched so I bought a new one, and then it got scratched too. Darn kids need to stay away from my games! Can’t have nothin’ nice! Anyways, I haven’t bought a new one so I’m back to GH 1 again. I don’t play as often as I used to, but I “managed” to play for an hour and a half tonight. It was fun, but I don’t think I’m ready for any tournaments. Still can’t beat those last two songs :(
Dang, Guitar Hero II is supposed to be coming out this fall and I’m not even through with this one. I hear there will be 55 new songs… I hope they have some of my favorites…. like Tesla – Love Song, something from Van Halen, Def Leppard, and of course who wouldn’t want Led Zepplin – Stairway to Heaven?
I finally made it through the Face Melters on hard, finishing with Bark at the Moon just today [after I managed to get out of jury duty]. Did I mention it was another star performance? You know… when you hit star power… three times…. just as they get ready to “boo” you off stage… LOL, whatever works, right?
For four whole weeks Crossroads has been like a demon. Although it doesn’t seem like it should be that hard of a song, I couldn’t beat it to save my life, and I couldn’t move on to the next venue. The few times when I almost made it someone would walk in the room and start gabbing. Then there would be that familiar boooooo from a disappointed crowd. It was becoming an endless cycle. Get half way through, get interrupted, lose the game.
Once I thought I would be tricky and turn the volume all the way down. It turned out to be a great trick… I actually beat the song that day…. I really thought I was all that until realized I wasn’t in career mode…. I forgot I was in Quick Play practicing…. My brother was ROFL. I didn’t think it was so funny… I was wrecked…. for days…. It took me four whole weeks and too many losses to count until I finally beat it again.
And I almost wasn’t going to play today…. I wasn’t up to it, and was full of all kinds of excuses not to… chores needed to be done, walls needed painting, blog needed updating… etc.
But I never can stay away…. after I crossed everythihng off my to do list I thought I would at least get some more “practice” in. You would have thought I won a car on the Price is Right if you saw me after I BEAT THE DAMN THING! I haven’t called to tell my brother yet. He can find out when we play in multi-player mode…. Maybe then I can LOL at him :)
Anyways, here are the latest and greatest of my Guitar Hero stats and the songs I made it through since the last update:
Career Score: 1,635,553

Smoke On The Water
More Than A Feeling
You Got Another Thing Comin’
Take Me Out

Six new songs! Still not much to brag about cuz I’m still on the hard level…. but at least now I have company. More like sibling rivalry. For a while my little brother was LOL at me, but now HA! LOL, the game owns him, too! Won’t be long until we have our own Guitar Hero tournament!
Anyways, here’s how much I rock as of 10:00 p.m. today:

No One Knows
Must be my new workout routine, i dunno…. but I managed to make it through five more songs. Crazy!

Just when I thought I would never get it, I finally nailed “Iron Man!” Hoo-Ah! Must have been a mental block, because after that I plowed through several more songs. Here’s where I’m at:

*Whew! I finally got through “Infected” on hard mode by Bad Religion.
I think I’m going to bed now.
Santa was good to us this Christmas. We got the new Playstation game Guitar Hero and it ROCKS! I am still pretty new at it, but so far I played my way through easy and medium modes, and just started on the hard level. It works exactly as advertised – it is HARD. The song that really kills me is Bark at the Moon (Ozzy Osbourne). But I’m having a lot of fun and hope to be an expert soon. Maybe by then I can start my own little Guitar Hero tournament!
