I'm good at spending my money at stuffs that my mom will probably throw it away when I'm not aware of it like my Alam Perwira/Dewata Raya/Juara Wira comics, my Micro Genius and soon ps1, my old school toys like Michelangelo figurine with the Pizza Thrower or my Mask and Captain Power videotapes. So just imagine her bebelan when I brought home the Guitar Hero box (just after one week I bought the 360 haa haa). I kinda tipu sunat when she asked about the price because I didn't wanna hear another bebelan about why I spend RM 380 on the device. For those who have never played Guitar Hero before, the quick explanation is that you have a guitar controller with five colored buttons and a strummer. Notes will appear on the screen, and you hit the matching buttons, and you rock tewww tewwwww tenewww. Ohh and if you think you can master this game just because you were able to play Knights of Cydonia with real guitar, think again. Click Read More.
RM380? That's too much. But hey, kekoolan by actually owning the wireless Gibson for Xbox 360 is priceless. The guitar is bundled with the original Guitar Hero 3 game that's why it's expensive. Anyway this game has a wide variety of rock songs for you to shred from all eras. Classic rock? we got Kiss' Rock n Roll All Nite, Santana's Black Magic Woman and Iron Maiden's Number of the Beast. If you're a punkhead, you will be happy to hear Sex Pistol's Anarchy in The U.K, Dead Kennedys and Social Distortion's Story of My Life. Modern rock hits? Sure. How about Knights of Cydonia by Muse or The Killers' When You Were Young? You want metal? Rock on with Metallica's One, Slayer's Raining Blood or Tenacious D's the Metal. Slipknot dan Disturbed juga ada. Fuhhh.
This version of guitar hero also include boss battle where you can rock off with Tom Morello from Audioslave/RATM or Slash (GnR/Velvet Revolver). Mannnn i always wussed out againts Tom because I could never beat him in time before he gave the finishing 'goreng'. We can also play co-op career mode where sorang menggoreng sorang lagi rhythm/bass. Wait, there's also a game called 'Rock Band' where you can jam with a guitar, a bass, a mic and a drum...yes a drum. How much would it cost? RM800 lebey kurang haa haa. Like i said, don't assume that you'll be strumming easily along the way if you know how to play guitar because the some of the Hard and Extreme (all of em!) difficultly will make your arm falls off during the second half of menggoreng. Some of my personal favorite track is Eric Johnson's Cliffs of Dover, Smashing Pumpkins' Cherub Rock and Hit Me With Your Best Shot by sape tah.
So come on, bring on your guitar (or your lame controller at least) and lets rock off!! Ohh here's an insane video about 9 year old kid shredding the hardest song on the game 'Through the Fire and Flames' on Extreme!
