Vacation, Guitar Hero, and Games I Need To Check Out


I will have a smile on my face tomorrow right around 8:30 pm. Why will I have a smile on my face you ask? My next vacation starts! I'll be off for nine days. Once again I plan on hanging out with my nephew for five or six days just playing video games, watching movies, and eating a bunch of junk food.

In case you've been living under a rock or you're just a casual gamer (nothing wrong with that at all!) the next Guitar Hero game will pretty much be a direct ripoff of that oh so hip and popular game Rock Band. I do not own Rock Band. I do own Guitar Hero 1 & 2 for the PS2. I'm not all that good at it either. Though this new Guitar Hero game entitled Guitar Hero World Tour is basically a ripoff I'm hearing good/great things about it. First off the guitar is supossedly the size of an actual guitar. I've also heard that the drum set is more sturdy than the Rock Band drum set, and it also has cymbal pads as well. On top of all of this you will be able to create your won songs WITHOUT VOCALS. Obviously I'll wait for the reviews to come out, but I'm interested for sure. The only reason I haven't bought Rock Band is because there are just too many modern songs. I'm not big on modern rock at all. I have seen the partial track list for Guitar Hero World Tour, and right away they have songs that I'm interested in.

Games I need to check out soon: GRID, LEGO INDIANA JONES, BATTLEFIELD: BAD COMPANY, CIVILIZATION REVOLUTION, & NASCAR 09. Oh, and BOOM BLOX on the Wii.

I love Rock Band but I am also excited about Guitar Hero IV. I won't be buying all the instruments for GH IV but I will buy the game.

I currently have Rock Band, GH II, and GH III. I am renting GH Aerosmith as I don't see myself playing that over and over. So I will rent it and play it once or twice, then send it back.

But GH IV is a MUST BUY for me. Can't wait for Christmas. WOOT

Games I'm Playing:

Halo 3: ODST (Xbox 360)







About Me

My photo
Kalamazoo, Michigan, United States
I'm 38. I'm addicted to Xbox 360 gaming and Dallas Stars hockey. I make a decent living at a boring job where I run two autoclaves and do various other tasks. My escape from this boring as hell life is video games, hockey, and music. I generally listen to Metal music, but I also love 80's tunes as well as 70's tunes. I have an unusual love for the band Overkill. They do it for me for some reason. Blitz is GOD!
