I’m not at all what you would call a “gamer”. Sure, I was addicted to Game Boy Tetris just like everybody else, and I went through a brief period (before the kids were born) when I played a lot of Spyro, but now I found a game that I love – “Guitar Hero II”.
(Nobody is paying me to say this and nobody gave me anything for free, but if Redoctane or Sony are reading this I do accept gifts.)
Did you know that you can play against each other like Steve Vai and the Devil* in Crossroads? You can also play a two player version where one person plays the lead guitar line and the other person plays bass or rhythm guitar? You get extra points for synchronized guitar moshing.
Why am I telling you this? To explain why I have to go out this afternoon and buy another five button guitar. For those of you keeping score at home that brings us up to one acoustic guitar, two electric guitars (one of the Hello Kitty variety, one suck-ass Hondo), one regular bass, one six string bass, one acoustic bass, one half sized acoustic guitar (slightly broken), four little toy guitars (of which I can only locate one) and two five button Guitar Hero Guitars.
Is that unreasonable?
* Correction: Steve Vai plays against Ralph Macchio in Crossroads, not the devil. I forgot, Vai is actually some sort of minion. Either way, I want to be Steve Vai. Gabe can be Ralph Macchio.
