In tangentially related news, Brad Delp of Boston died. That's Boston as in "More Than a Feeling" Boston.
I am filled with trepidation about RB's plan for a Guitar Hero showdown between myself and MW. My main fear is that there will be a skill mismatch, and that would lead to no fun. I know that there are eight-year-olds and slices of pizza that are better Guitar Heroes than I am. So as one more thing the world doesn't really need, I suggest there should be some sort of GH ranking/handicapping scale, based on the completion of particular objectives. Other Guitar Heroes and Zeroes should feel free to propose additional levels, dispute my ordering, or just vent. The scale could help foster more equal competition (for people who like that sort of thing; me, I'm content with co-op).
(except for the specific mention of Jordan, 'songs' means just the regular setlist. Rocked means successfully played to the end.)
0 - What is Guitar Hero?
1 - I've played and rocked a few Easy songs at parties
2 - rocked roughly half the songs on Easy
3 - rocked all songs on Easy
4 - rocked roughly half the songs on Medium
5 - rocked all songs on Medium
6 - 5 starred all songs on Easy
7 - rocked roughly half the songs on Hard
8 - 5 starred all songs on Medium
9 - rocked all songs on Hard
10 - rocked roughly half the songs on Expert
11 - rocked all songs on Expert
12 - 5 starred all songs on Hard
13 - rocked "Jordan" on Expert
14 - 5 starred all songs on Expert
On this scale, I'm a 12 (it's one higher than one higher)
Most recent godlike accomplishment: 5-starring Beast and the Harlot on Expert. Yet, I still cannot 5-star Woman.
