RIP Ralph Baer (1922-2014) I really, really hate writing obits. I really do. But I take it as a personal honor to be able to say good things about the men and women I respect, whether in this industry or just in my life, and Ralph Baer is the reason all of this exists in the first...

Guitar Hero: First Impressions
Posted on Wednesday, November 9 2005 @ 12:27:13 Eastern

Initial impressions on Guitar Hero, a recently released rhythm game for the PlayStation 2:

It ROCKS, simply. I'm excited that such a music game has finally been developed for the shores outside of Japan. I remember my brief time playing an imported copy of Guitar Freaks and having a blast. Now it's time for something I can understand in English.

     I was in the kitchen making spaghetti (don't ask, my wife was either kidnapped or getting groceries, it's the only reason why I'd be making my own food) when my roommate walked in and flashed his Guitar Hero box at me.

     Unfortunately, I've yet to play the game. My roommate's been rocking out with his mullet out and I've been eating pasta (who wants to take bets on Nintendo making a comparable game with Mario? "It's-a me, Mario! I'm-a play you-sa solo!"?) watching.

     There's a decent song selection to get started with: Iron Man, I Wanna Be Sedated, More Than A Feeling, etc. The graphics are nothing flashy like a game of Metal Gear Solid 3 or Halo 2, but they work and you don't want to be bothered by flashiness while you're concentrating on pulling off a wicked solo.

I cannot say much else from a gamer's viewpoint, so expect a future update in the next half of day on what the game really feels like. Until then, I'll go back to my air guitar. That's still cool, right?
