Windows 10 Review for Dummies

After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

DAILY MANIFESTO

The First Person In The World To Beat Guitar Hero III

Posted on Friday, October 5 @ 16:23:17 PST by Duke_Ferris
When he's not flipping out and killing people, GR's Nick Tan likes to apply his ninja skills to Guitar Hero. He rocks so hard you simply cannot handle it. Seriously.

And the other day at a Guitar Hero III party in San Francisco, he rocked so hard Activision could not handle it. The unlockable song Through the Fire and Flames by Dragonforce is designed to be the hardest in the game, like the nearly impossible Jordan by Buckethead in Guitar Hero II. Except in this case, in the words of the developers, for GH3 they "designed this to be unbeatable, dammit!".

Never, ever say that.

After a couple run-throughs, Nick's skills had Activision so amazed they started filming him on his third attempt. And on the fourth, he beat it, in expert mode, which is the main video here.

Skeptical? If you want confirmation, here is the lead designer confirming Nick's status as the first person to have ever beaten the song.

For a close up of the brutal challenge, here's the first half. The full song is over five minutes.

Needless to say, nobody at Activision expected anyone to actually beat the game at their preview party. Here's his final scoreboard. Way to go Nick!

EDIT: Nick has written up a personal account with a lot more detail. You should check it out.
