Guitar Hero: What have I done?

Wednesday, April 16th, 2008

I may have rocked so hard that I've hurt myself.

For some stupid reason, I though it would be a good idea to pick up Guitar Hero III for the Wii. It was almost 50% off by the time I was done with my order.

For the longest time I had scoffed at GH, but I always burned with the secret shame of envy. The rhythm mini-games in RayMan Raving Rabbids was just too much fun. Luckily, the GH entry point was too high. Unfortunately, that couldn’t hold out forever. The awesome Gizmodo pointed out an extremely short run sale on Amazon. I got approval and popped it in my cart. To my surprise, I had a $17.01 gift certificate in my account for which I have no explanation. With my Amazon Prime membership, it arrived disturbingly fast.

After a few minutes of unboxing and setup, I was plunking away at the tutorial. After a few hours of straight play, I got my first five star rating on easy.

This will be a very bad thing.
