So yeah, it has been a while since I did a bit of blogeriferousness…

What have I been up to? Well mainly I have been achievement whoring on Soul Calibur IV which is going well apart from the Tower being a bitch to get through. But in a strange twist of events I went back to Guitar hero 2 and 3 on the Xbox 360, after pretty much getting sick of Rockband. I have done the “Endless setlist” twice now, once on hard and then a second time on expert, though I totally nabbed out on the second time, as the guys I was playing with were on a lower difficulty, and I had got it in my head that I would still get the expert achievement… I have flirted with singin, but I really can’t sing, I failed “Tom Sawyer” on EASY! Though my Glados interpretation was apparently spot on! Drums bug the shit out of me, I’m not willing to put in the hours of practice needed to get my leg working independently of my arms. And bass just makes be really jealous of whoever is playing the guitar part. Then couple that with the fact that I have played all of the songs over and over (notably sick of: I Think I’m Paranoid, Orange Crush, Maps and Creep), and the DLC just is not doing it for me, Though this may change as there is apparently six full albums of DLC coming out today!!!

Anyways, so I was playing Guitar Hero with my troops, and I just found it more, fun. The mechanics for Hammer-ons and Pull-offs are much better in the GH series, plus playing the songs is more of a challenge. So after a bit of discussion about the Guitar in Rock band which is all I care about TBFH) versus Guitar Hero, we decided that Rockband is more angles for the general public or a family situation, whereas Guitar hero is more catered for the hardcore Rhythm gamers. Which makes me wonder, will they keep this formulae for the up and coming Guitar hero 4, or will Rock band 2 step up its game a bit since it is now established? In any case I’m buying both, but I’m finding myself getting more excited about Guitar hero 4, despite the lack of confirmed tracks.

Elsewhere, I have decided to hate my Wii. One of the main reasons I wanted the Wii was for Super Smash Brothers Brawl, being a big fan of Melee. I played it recently and it is sub par. The graphics are EXACTLY the same as the gamecube version, but with less game options and modes. Which just makes me wonder why on earth I still have it.

2. Trade [Richie]: WTS [Nintendo Wii].

Even the titles I’m looking forward to are now only on my 360!

Slight rogue DS title that may come out this year is Chrono Trigger, I fucking love that game, and could totally dig some time ravelling Square RPG action on my DS.

This is gonna be an awesome Autumn/ Winter :D

P.S. Throw in Wrath of the Lich King in there as a TBC too. Stupid WoW.

Luv n Bum hugs,
