Guitar Hero III vs Rock Band: I am Undone…
My friends, when Rock Band hits Canadian shelves all thought of being a hero of the guitar will fade away to nothingness. All previous joy derived from such a glittery and oh so jittery game will feel empty, will feel hollow, will feel…broken.
Rock Band takes the concept begun with GH 1&2 and propels it into the very now of play.
When my new Fender rests firmly in my hands once again and my own sweet copy of bliss spins indefinitely in my 360 I will tell you more. Though I won’t have to. You will no doubt experience this ushering into godhood yourself.
There are so many things…so many things…
And soon I will tell you of them all.
Until then, think on this quaint and inefficient comparison for it is all my joy drunk mind can think of:
Guitar Hero III is 1970’s Battlestar Galactica on a snowy tube tv running off a dusty VCR while you sit alone in a dark and sparse room.
Rock Band is the new Battlestar Galactica in HD on a 52 inch flat screen hanging above your bed while every inch of your body is being bombarded with Starbuck, Caprica Six, and Lt. Shaw’s sweet caresses.
And every one is naked.
And there’s cake too.
