Guitar Hero findings

Current Project: 5-starring every song on Medium. I'm getting good at Medium. I'm glad about that. I've tried Hard and even in practice mode slowly learning the riffs, switching from Medium to Hard is like switching from a pennyfarthing to a souped-up turbocharged motorcycle like the ones Kaneda and Tetsuo rode in Akira.

Proudest Accomplishment So Far: 5-starring Mirsirlou. The song is always good for an adrenalin rush, and I was gobsmacked last night to find I'd 5-starred it. Cha-ching! Fist pumped in air, life was good. Even better than 5-starring Jessica the other night without realizing it.

Favorite Songs to Play, GH2: Jessica, Rock This Town (nobody but Eddie Knox can play it, though), Search And Destroy (Iggy Pop), Strutter (Kiss), Tonight I'm Gonna Rock You Tonight (Spinal Tap), Girlfriend (Matthew Sweet), Mr. Fix-It (The Amazing Crowns), Less Talk More Rokk (Freezepop -- my god it's mesmerizing) and of course TROGDOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOR

Favorite Songs to Play, GH Rocks The 80s: Synchronicity II (The Police), Bathroom Wall (Faster Pussycat), Turning Japanese (The Vapors), Heat of the Moment (Asia). Radar Love and Ballroom Blitz are also good but the BEST versions of them were done in the 70s, and the 80s version of Ballroom Blitz especially doesn't rock as it REALLY should.

Favorite Songs to Play, GH3: Talk Dirty To Me (Poison), The Seeker (The Who), My Name Is Jonas (Weezer), Knights of Cydonia (Muse), Holiday in Cambodia (Dead Kennedys), Barracuda (Heart), Cult of Personality (Living Colour -- and the new master with the new guitar solo is amazing), Anarchy in the UK (Sex Pistols), and Cliffs of Dover (Eric Johnson, and this one is so much fun! Though it's a goddamn pain in Medium.)

I haven't unlocked the co-op songs yet, which is a goddamn shame since I don't have anybody to play with (and I'm not sure if I wanna enter in The Cheat) and I know at least two of them that I want to do so badly it hurts (Sabotage and Suck My Kiss). I also haven't purchased any of the extra songs just yet, but the Lacuna Coil and Die Toten Hosen sound worth it. The boss battles suck, though (my strategy is to save up the Blinking Attack, save up a Difficulty Up attack, save up a Double Note attack, and hit 'em all at once to try and get the other guy to quickly fail) but The Devil Went Down To Georgia is a lot of fun to play.

I guess I should now get GH1 to round out the entire thing.
