Last night I returned home from PAX AUS 2014. Long story short, it wasn't perfect, but it was quite possibly the best weekend I've had this year. It was a lot of fun. If you'd like to continue reading, the long story is just below. Buckle up. This is gonna be...

DAILY MANIFESTO

TROGDOR!!!!

Posted on Friday, November 3 @ 15:52:24 Eastern by Joe_Dodson
You may have heard that Trogdor, as performed by Strong Bad, and Thunderhorse, by Dethklok, are unlockable tracks in Guitar Hero II. Well suckas, you heard right. Those tracks are in the game and we have been playing them non-stop, rocking our nights and days away, and demolishing any hopes of productivity.

So in the spirit of the holidays, we're going to go out and compulsively buy lots of expensive nick-nacks while drunkenly telling our Grandparents why our eyes were really red during Uncle Bob's funeral. In the meantime, we thought you might like to check out these two videos of GR editors Joe Dodson and Mike Reilly co-oping through Trogdor and Thunderhorse.

Now, as you can see, Mike and I have vastly different skill levels; I have skills, he does not. That used to be a problem, because I would invoke Charlton Heston every time he wanted to play: "From my cold, dead hands, f**ker." Now I can rock and he can do whatever it is he does...at the same time. Just like a guitarist and a bassist in a real band.

Trogdor

Trogdor is famous for burninating the peoples, and soon he will be equally famous for burninating your hands. Behold as Mike and I attempt to harness his green, scaly power.

Thunderhorse

I hadn't heard of Dethklok or Metalocalypse before unlocking this song, but I can't pass up anything with a name like Thunderhorse. Takes me back to when I used to rock out to Dio in my parents' basement. So, yesterday.

That's all for now, but be sure to tune in next week for our full Guitar Hero II review!
