Hello again readers! Doesn’t Jimi look cool in the pic above?
Anyway, this week I will talk to you about the bane of all underground music and the antithesis of all decent guitar players:
Nah, just kidding. I got GH3 for Christmas, and gave up on it about a month ago when I hit the last few songs on Hard mode. Sure, it can be a little overrated at times, and when I see those people who’ve nailed Through the Fire and Flames on Expert (and LOL at what they’ve done to make that song as hard as it is) I do think that they could have spent their time on better things. However, I’m getting a little tired of those who constantly flame the game: “Awmagawd play a real guitar faaag,” or “You’re not a real fan of Metallica if you got One from GH”. PFFFTT. It’s just a game, seriously. And a good source of decent music. I’d never listened to RATM before I played the game, and I love Bulls on Parade. Does that make me less entitled to enjoy the song? Of course not!
Anyway, when I first started looking for cheats for GH3 on my Wii, I found a lack of reliable material, most of which was mixed with cheats for other consoles and simply didn’t work. I have since found a complete list of cheats (for the Wii version, mind!) which I have tested and do all work. I was unable to test the Easy Expert, No Fail, and Unlock All Songs cheats, as I had unlocked them before and forgotten the codes 😛 But they seem legitimate. Click here for the full list.
I think next week I’ll start throwing some reviews about, but for now I have some videos for your amusement. In the UK we have these people called ‘Chavs’… It may partially be the snotty, snobbish side of Middle to Upper class Brits, but it’s also undeniable that there’s something wrong with a lot of those people. Just check out the following video to see what I mean:
So… yeah. You lol’d a little bit, right? I think I at least heard a giggle.
For the record, I have nothing against rap/hip-hop. It’s not what I really listen to, but there’s good stuff out there nonetheless. Thses guys though… they’re just on a completely different level. I especially love the piss-takes going around, including Cure, Kraftwerk, and the following remixes:
Before I go, make sure to check out GN’s post on getting free music using just Notepad and an Internet Browser. Should be helpful if you want to stay away from Frostwire (or Limewire if you’ve been living under a rock 🙂 )
And with that, I bid thee farewell!
Rock on! \m/
