This looks fantastic.
Recently I have noticed many people getting all excited over the Guitar Hero game series. First off the game isn’t even named correctly. It should be called “Expensive 5 Button Controller Hero”. The only resemblance this thing has to a real guitar is that it is roughly shaped like one. This game is much like the Dance Dance Revolution crap that was going around some time ago. Double amputees everywhere rejoice as this game does not require feet.
To help quell some of the bullshit I have put together a few videos to show the difference between guitar playing and button mashing.
Ready? Here we go.
This is someone with real talent playing a “real” guitar. Notice there are no colored buttons and the absence of that obnoxious clicking sound.
Next we have a no talent ass hat that can push buttons really fast. Also featured are his friends who are amazed by his button pushing awesomeness. (Warning: Watching this entire video will cause your IQ to drop considerably. You’ve been warned.)
The amazing Andy Mckee. Who not only creates fantastic harmony but manages the percussion at the same time.
Here is another video that shows the darker side of this Guitar Hero phenomenon.
Back to some serious talent.
This kid gets major points for style and the fact that he destroys the “guitar shaped controller” at the end.
So in closing, I know some of you are having fun with this game. You aren’t the people I’m talking to. I’m talking to the people that feel “extra special” because you can mash some colored buttons and animated crowds cheer your name. I assure you…. you people are speshul! In that short bus, window licker kind of way.
Don’t agree? Sorry…. Don’t really care.
There are a whole series of these signs all over the Golden Gate bridge. Guess not everything is sunshine and flowers in San Francisco.
I missed Taser Tuesday last week so here are here is a two’fer fer ya.
The first one is just awesome. Imagine one minute your being a belligerent asshole and the next you’re a quivering pile of Jello on the floor. Bonus impact points on the trip to the floor.
This one starts out a little slow with a “tough” Marine guy messing around with an individual who clearly has no hand to hand combat training. Presumably this match-up is to illustrate how “tough” the Marine is. The second part is this guy going up against a taser. Apparently the taser is much tougher.
