Addicted to Guitar Hero 3!

Guitar Hero IIII’m still alive and kicking but I’ve discovered the most addicting video game on the planet: Guitar Hero III – Legends Of Rock. I have a Playstation 2, it’s the original one that I bought in 2000, and I haven’t upgraded to the new generation of Wii, PS3, and Xbox 360. I play only a few games now: Madden Football (I have every year stored away), Medal Of Honor, and SpongeBob games. Laugh if you must but I like Spongebob!

So I promised myself a present when my income tax return came in the mail. I wanted something different from the usual CD/DVD shopping spree I usually give myself but I didn’t want it to be overly expensive. I have been looking at the Guitar Hero Series for a while now but I always used the price tag and the time needed to play as reasons NOT to buy it. With the announcement of the Aerosmith version last week, I decided to finally buy into the hype and buy Guitar Hero III.

Bought it at 6 o’clock last night, plugged it in at 7, and played it until somewhere just before 10pm. Watched a little TV with my wife, she fell asleep on the couch, so I plugged back in around 11:30pm and played two more hours. Obviously, I’m still a rookie to the whole thing…..I’m not hitting every note on  Dragonforce – ‘Through The Fire And Flames’ on Expert level…..

…..but I did manage to unlock almost all of the songs on the Easy level and I had enough gig money to buy a Flying V!

So the posts will resume soon. I have some shopping trips to tell everyone about, some reviews to post, and a few playlists but they will all have to wait…..I’m trying to get my chops up on this game!

  1. I bought Guitar Hero III for the Wii, The wireless is nice. I just finished the easy level myself, but I wanna practise some more and refresh with the tutorials before I move on to medium. I’ve created my own Ice Viking character with back up Barbarian outfits if the “gig” calls for it. The game is a blast and the metal version of Devil Went Down To Georgia kicks ass!

    By the way Sponge Bob for PS2 is a fun game!

  2. My PS2 guitar is wireless and that helps a lot. Once I get going and get the fingers loose, I do well. I’ll admit that some of the songs on Easy gave me some trouble, ‘Devil Went Down To Georgia’ being one of them. Once I get thru the Easy level, I am going to practice because Medium starts using 4 and 5 colors on the fret.

  3. I started playing GH3 2 months ago and had never played any previous GH games. Thanks to my addictive nature, I’ve managed to beat the game on expert!!! It’s a great game.
