Saturday night was a very odd night and it was like fate led me to Guitar Hero III. Let my story begin...
My night started off with me searching everywhere for my Halloween costume to hit up a Halloween party. But after 5 stores, no luck. In case you are wondering, my costume was to be Walter from The Big Lebowski. Anyways I say fuck it and grab this haggard cowboy costume and am all set to go but, I get home only to find out said party has been canceled?! Fuck. So I say F this and grab some beers and start playing some PS3. My roommate gets home, our friend comes over, we are bored as shit and to top it off, its midnight, and we are already out of beer. So after already having a few drinks, we say fuck it we need beer and head to the store. We get there and find out, the grocery store is already closed! Fucking shit so we head to another grocery store and this one is closed too! So I say fuck this, lets hit the bar! We go to the bar, and it is jammed packed for a Halloween party and I say fuck this! Lets just go to the damn 7-11! Theyre open, get beer, success. So we make our way through the parking lot and see that the damn Game Stop is still open! And I wonder, what in the blue hell is the Game Stop doing open at Midnight:30?? Then I see a kid walk out holding Guitar Hero III and realize, oh shit! Midnight sale for the release of Guitar Hero!!!!! Boom! We go inside and see that they only have PS3 versions left for reserved people. We are a bit sad but say fuck it and settle on the Wii version till the dude says "Oh wait, we got one for PS3!" Boo yaa!!! Fate, was on our side that night. Except for in our drunken excitement my roommate takes off in his focus and romps over a curb tearing the shit out of his car LOL @ HIM. Anyways.... as for my review and thoughts?
I had never played any of the previous versions. I have just very very limited basics as to how to play a real guitar so was kinda iffy on this. But I did play a bit of Guitar Hero 2 at a Wal Mart and thought it could be fun. Well we get home around Midnight:45ish, set the game up, and start playing career mode. And continued to play, until I saw the sun coming up, and realized it was just past 6 in the morning, and we had beaten career on easy. Wow. I have not had this much fun or been this challenged by a game in a long time. On top of that it turned me onto new bands and new music. And I will just say, Slayer - Raining Blood is insanity on this damn game and I am scared to death to even attempt this song on Medium. Hey fuck you I'm new to this game.
The song list is awesome, the graphics kick ass, and the boss battles rule. As for who to expect? First up you gotta battle Mr. Tom Morello. The man from a band known as Rage Against The Machine. After that, you go up against Slash himself. But the big bad at the end of the damn game is who else... The Devil, and of course, what song do you have to battle him in? The Devil Went Down To Georgia.
All in all, if you love music, rock n roll, and guitars, you will obviously dig this damn game. And for those weiners that need some cheat codes. Well here ya go! Oh and these codes are for the PS3 version. For codes to other systems, head to gamewinners.com
