Guitar Hero

I admit it. I've been Guitar-Curious for some time now. My friend Chris loves it, my friend Eric loves it, Chris can't wait for Rock Band. And it sounded and looked fun, when I'd see folks playing the demo unit at Best Buy. So, with Guitar Hero 3 out with a nifty wireless controller, I figured I'd see if I could pick it up.

Called around a bit, and everyone was sold out, but Game Stop had a used copy, plus the controller, which meant I picked everything up for a decent savings. The fellow at the counter tried to get me to pre-order Rock Band, but I declined, both because pre-orders bother me a bit, and because I don't think I have enough friends to make that sort of outlay worthwhile.

As to the game, it's fun! I'm only playing on easy difficulty to get the hang of things, but it's pretty good. I played from ten to around midnight, and my fingers had become twisted claws by the end of the night. I think I'd enjoy it even more if I had someone else to play with. I'll have to see if Janie likes it. I'd totally buy a second controller if I could get her to play with me. And there are enough 80's hair band songs in the game to keep her interested :)
