The recent release of Evolve and The Order 1886 really got me to thinking about the disparity between the perspective of sales-driven publishers and the quality-driven purchases of consumers. The “Hype Train” is nothing new, but the way it is utilized has been creating far more...

Lost my Touch
Posted on Tuesday, August 12 2008 @ 09:59:16 Eastern

After three weeks of barely playing Rock Band, I finally got back on it. Mainly because my guitar is finally in working order again, a month ago the fret button wouldn't work at all, making me fail some easy songs both off and online (so to everyone I have played with where I failed, sorry.)

So after learning that no matter how coordinated I can become I will always suck at the drums (although I am now on medium difficulty, which is good.) I put the game away for a bit until I had time to fix it.

After operating on the guitar and fixing it finally, I downloaded todays pack and began playing, and failed all six songs downloadable today. ALL SIX. Granted, thee of them were level 9 I believe, but still, this is unprecedented because I have been an expert guitarist for a while now, and until today there were only a few songs I couldn't beat on expert, and now there are six more.

So I went down to simpler songs, and I began floundering there as well. I beat them, but none of them had five stars, let alone gold stars. To test myself, I played Enter Sandman, and even four starred that! Now there is something REALLY wrong.

I guess I am out of practice, so it's time to play like a madman for a few days until my vacation with the family next week.
