|10:24 am - My "Wait a minute" of the day|
One of the settings in Guitar Hero 3 is the "video shoot" setting, in which your band performs in a soundstage on the back of a flatbed truck (powered by an automobile sponsor) with fake moving scenery behind you to make it appear as if you're rockin' on down the road. Okay, that's all well and good, but:
THIS BLATANT AND OUTRAGEOUS DISCREPANCY HAS CAUSED THE GAME TO LOSE ALL CREDIBILITY IN MY EYES. EVERY OTHER PART OF THE GAME RINGS TRUE; I MEAN, WE ALL KNOW THAT ROCK BANDS ARE CONSTANTLY GETTING INTO GUITAR BATTLES AGAINST THE DEVIL IN HELL, BUT CROWD SOUNDS DURING AN UNNECESSARY LIVE PERFORMANCE IN A CLEARLY EMPTY SOUNDSTAGE? POOR DESIGN, REDOCTANE. YOU'VE LOST NOT ONLY YOUR TOUCH BUT MY WILLING SUSPENSION OF DISBELIEF AS WELL.
- This is nowhere near a live setting, so why are there crowd noises?
- And don't most bands lip-sync video shoots like this?
L.H. PUTTGRASS SIGNING OFF AND HEADING FOR THE TUB.
I've heard that said, once or twice.
"Hi, guys, just wondering if you needed me to mow your lawn again this week. Hey, what's going on?"
"Whoa, is that beer? And that song sounds familiar, man."
I think he's okay just as long as he then doesn't climb on your garage, holler "I AM A GOLDEN GOD!" and then belly-flop into the pool.
I just wonder what Slash was doing hanging around a prison (best part: the one guy in the background who yells, in a very non-prison-like way, "OH MY GOD, IT'S SLASH!")
Visiting Steve Adler, perhaps?

You've been sniffing the dandelions again, haven'tcha.
I came >< this close to buying GH3 yesterday, just because it has "Like a Hurricane". But I feel an odd sort of guilt about it not being Harmonix anymore.
Well, if you want to try it out without the residual guilt, stop on by sometime. I kinda unlocked all the songs because of the stupid co-op mode requirements.
And if you got a PS2-compatible guitar, bring it along. Mine has stickers all over it!
I don't play Guitar Hero, but this made me laugh in real life.
But you already knew you are hilarious.
