Guitar Hero Band Pack

Been some days since I posted last time, have to blame exam and me taking two days of and chilling at my cabin. So going to post a new post every other hour today to get on track with all you’ve missed and all what I have experience the last week. So I’ll start with last Monday (a week back in time). I’ll try to stay in presence.

Today I bought Guitar Hero Band Pack! I’ve always wanted to try out the drum kit, but have thought it’s been to expensive. Then suddenly I saw a Gamestop ad where they where selling it super cheap if you traded in four of your games. So I picked Amped 3, Skate, Dead Rising and MX vs ATV out of my self (need to buy Amped 3, Skate and Dead Rising back!) and headed down. First time I was there (Saturday) they we’re all out and didn’t know when they would get some new back. So I was all mopey and didn’t thought I would get one. Then I went back on Monday since I had to pick something up for my work. I packed my games just in case and looked inside first one Gamestop, and they hadn’t got anything, then I checked a second one and they had one Band Pack left! “Woho” I thought and said. So that’s how I got my hands on a Band Pack. After that I had to carry it from the store and back home. That was very exhausting! I’ve forgot to mention that Guitar Hero Metallica was a part of the deal, so I got an extra guitar (now I have three, so going to try to sell one)!

The Metallica version is okay, with a lot of Metallica songs (duh), but not many other cool songs. They need to start getting songs I like! What about some Dream Theater Guitar Hero, or Smashing Pumpkins. Or what about region based?! Some Norwegian and Swedish Guitar Hero would be awesome! Maybe I’ll just pick up Rock Band to solve the song issue.

Thought about drums: I think it’s a lot of fun, very hard. A lot harder than guitar, but I’m getting a hang of it now. Started to play a little bit medium (I’m playing mostly Hard and a bit expert on Guitar). It feel really great to play on the drums, but it o make a lot of sounds just hitting the pads. Need to find a way to dampen that, I’ve read on the Internet that you can use linen to cover them. So maybe I’ll try that one time.

Exams

It’s so boring to read, but I have to. So I’m just making a short post here. I bought Guitar Hero World Tour today, probably not the best idea to shop while studeing to an exam, but I just had to. They where selling it for 99kr (which is around 13$) when you traded in two games. And I had two old games that I couldn’t get rid of (Kameo and Table Tennis (didn’t want to trade that in, but had to( probably buying it again later))). So I’ve been testing it out a little bit and it’s super fun! Love the way the new guitar works. Especially the “frat” board or what ever it is called. Hit the jump for some pictures.

Guitar Hero On Tour Bundle

We are getting a new DS. Not a new new DS, but a new design. Guitar Hero design. No the coolest looking, but some may like it. Here picture and some info.

“This one-of-a-kind bundle makes Nintendo DS even more appealing to our ever-growing audience of players,” said Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “Like Nintendo DS itself, the Guitar Hero franchise has attracted millions of new players to the world of video games.”

Guitar Hero: World Tour

A music video of people playing the new Guitar Hero franchise. Guitar, drums, bass and vocal.  They are also stating that they are releasing the biggest set list. That can be very good, but also crap. Depends on what they put on it. Hopefully every songs from GH to GH:Aerosmith. Another cool thing they say you can do, is to record your own songs. Don’t know how good that will be since you can’t hit any real notes with the guitar, but hey. Maybe it works?!
