What's more shameful than hanging out with yourself on a Saturday night while playing
guitar and vocals at the same time in Rock Band? Having not just one of your instruments
fail upon starting, but two instruments find their way to an early grave. Sweet jesus!

So here I was, locked up in the house and hyped up on Vitamin Water, when I felt the
sudden urge to rock. Maybe it was knowing that I could be in the city right now watching
some local punk rock, or the Flight of the Conchords I was watching on YouTube, but I
wanted to get up and do something ridiculous.

I push the drums aside and make way for the microphone stand (LOL). I strap on the
guitar, pick "Little Sister" by Queens of the Stone Age (Expert guitar, Medium Vocals even!)
and I get about ten notes in before I realize that the strumbar on my guitar has died.

Again.

So I pause, fiddle with it for a few moments before trying again. Upon pausing the game, a
warning pops up. The controller that's in charge of my microphone has run out of battery.
Why does Rock Band hate me so much?

In related news, I swung by EA's campus earlier this week to play the game on PS2. The
word is out on the (lack of) features, but damn does their setup always seem to impress
me-



I shall retire to bed with a wired controller, a bottle of something and my second
playthrough of Mass Effect. I'd kill for a Wrex plushie.
