Dear Red Octane,
I hate you guys, I really really hate you guys. Prior to you releasing Guitar Hero 2 for the Xbox 360, I had played it for maybe 20 minutes in a Best Buy (going during the day has its benefits) on a PS2 system they had set up. I thought to myself, "well, that's pretty darn cool, I hope it comes out for the 360 at some point." It did, and now I hate you guys since I can't stop playing it.
Granted everything past level 5 is death metal and I can't stand it, but who knew I'd sit and spend hours trying to learn "Cherry Pie" or "Shout at the Devil" on hard? Not just learning them, no doubt, but actually trying to 5-star them? I was so excited today when I hit 96% with "Cherry Pie" on hard that I raced upstairs to tell Leif of my achievement. You would've thought I won some major award, but nope, just my first over 90% song on hard. If it weren't for "guitar solo B" then I would have hit 100, so I still have something to work towards.
Thanks to you, I can't get songs like "Surrender" out of my head, and not only that, but when I hear them in my head, I envision the Guitar Hero notes used to play them. I'm addicted to your stupid game!
We did have some exciting times last week when our friends Ryan and Carol were in town. Rather than just sit and watch a movie at the end of the day, we all played some Guitar Hero, either in career mode or in multiplayer. It made for some entertaining evenings, and by the time they left, we had unlocked all 8 levels and multiple bonus guitars and characters.
Please make the madness stop.
