well ... while we were school shopping for kids on the 19th son wanted to buy Guitar Hero but was $20 short ... I said I'd cover ... then I took him aside and asked if he'd rather I buy it for the family or if he really wanted it to be HIS ... he let me buy it <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"> ... we got the Aerosmith version with 2 guitars ... I also picked up the 2-pack GH1&GH2 game ...<br><br>
in the meantime ... the next day our computer completely wigged out on us and we had no choice but to FINALLY take it in for repair (we hoped it could be repaired, at least) ... the kids and I have played the heck outta GH this past 1 1/2 weeks!<br><br>
I actually had a GH injury going into my little sprint tri last weekend, lol ... the pinky, ring, and middle fingers on my left hand were swollen and stiff ... I'm getting old! haha ... looking forward to the inherited arthritis I'll probably deal with in a few years <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/roll_eyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll_eyes"><br><br><br>
Son is the best in the house ... already passing songs on Hard (though he misses a lot of notes, but he gets to move on to next song with high enough percentage) ... I can't even get more than 10%-15% into a hard song without being booed offstage! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/sad2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="sad2"> ... I made it through easy on all 3 games ... and then mastered medium on Aerosmith and GH2 ... but GH1 evaded me, the last 8 songs were ticking me off ... then, FINALLY, yesterday I made it past all but the last one before me, my daughter and her bf had to leave to see a Sevendust concert in C-bus ... Ozzy's 'Bark at the Moon' still awaits me ...........................<br><br><br>
I am getting pretty high percentages on most songs on medium but keep going back and trying to get better and earn more stars ... on medium I have 5 stars on about 1/4th the songs ... 4 stars on about 1/2 ... and only the minimum passing rate of 3 stars on the other 1/4th ... I improved some of those 3 stars to 4 yesterday ...<br><br><br>
I cannot fathom how those playing real guitars do it ... I watched in amazement last night at the concert as the heavy and frantic music errupted out of all those guitars ... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/notworthy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="notworthy"><br><br><br>
anybody else have GH fever???

I do. You guys know they are making a new one that comes out in October that has full band support like Rock Band but better.

I do think I'd heard something like that but it doesn't really matter right now ... daughter's bf plays Rock Band at a friend's house a lot and it sounds fun ... but we have very limited space and don't know that we'll be getting that sort of set-up ...<br><br><br>
I will probably be buying GH3 soon ... I don't know if I can hold off till Christmas, hahahahahaa <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/blush.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="blush"><br><br><br>
I saw on the news the Guitar Praise is coming out soon ... a version with Christian Rock and instead of battling you raise your bar to give your opponent things, apparently .............................................

Oh dear. Guitar Hero 3 is alot of fun, that's what i have, the boss battles are tricky especially the final one.<br><br>
I know Metallica has a Guitar Hero coming out sometime next year.

I suck at battles ... I couldn't get past Joe Perry on Easy, lol ...<br><br>
I finally gave in and let son do that for me so I could finish that level ...<br><br><br>
BUT ... after practicing battles against son ... also, against my will - I HATE BATTLES but son won't play with me unless I do it some <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Sad"> ... anyways ... I BEAT JOE PERRY in battle on medium all by myself! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Very Happy"><br><br>
... and I finally beat my son a couple times too ...<br><br><br>
but, I still don't like the battles ... playing the notes is hard enough without having to attack and be attacked! YIKES<br><br><br>
I will look for that Metallica ... it'll probably take me forever and a day to try and master that, though!<br><br><br>
I don't know if I'll ever be capable of hard or expert levels on any of them .... that's a lot of movement at intense speed ...

WooHoo ... I played and passed the first 3 (or was it 4?) songs on GH1 Hard .... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/banana.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="banana"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/banana.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="banana"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/banana.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="banana"><br><br><br>
.....until the song with oranges popping up too randomly amongst the greens! Arghhhh!!!<br><br><br>
Do you all spend your $$$ on stuff or just songs or nothing? son thinks I'm goofy for messing with outfits and guitars ... I've even bought a couple characters, lol ... but first I buy the songs <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">

Did you all hear that Eddie Van Halen really sucks at Guitar Hero?

not Eddie! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/sad2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="sad2"><br><br><br>
I can see how Gh would not really translate into real guitar playing ... I had heard some famous folks weren't so hot at the game ...

I have not even tried playing this game yet. I have no rhythm or any of that....<br><br>
I remember the embarrassment that was DDR. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/surprised.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Surprised">
