FEATURED VOXPOP samsmith614 Since game design is a business, I decided to see what's really selling well for the PS4. I did this search a week ago, and at the time, out of the top 20 bestsellers on Amazon 10 had not even been released yet. By now some have been released. But others still have not. And yet others...

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?
