Miniboss Monday: Orange Fret Button (of Death)

Hot off the release of Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock for every console on the market, I bring you one of gaming's more subtle minibosses. Yes, I am indeed referring to the dreaded Orange Fret Button. Many pinky fingers have been slaughtered and many songs have been failed due to this silent killer. Even now, there are thousands of people screaming in united agony trying to nail some of those solos in "Through the Fire and Flames" on Expert. Why? Mostly because of the fatal fifth fret -- a button which single-handedly gave the Guitar Hero series an actual level of difficulty.

Some of you out there might feel that today's miniboss is a joke. A simple, orange, plastic button. Nothing more, you say? I think not! The Orange Fret is unlike any of its four colored brethren. It feels miles away from the rest. It is unrelenting, unforgiving, unflinching and indiscriminate to the lives it takes and the souls it consumes. Sure, anyone and their grandmother can beat songs on Easy and Medium, but the moment you first took the plunge and attempted Hard mode, everything changed.

Many have worked tirelessly to perfect their slide. Others try best to use the old "Go Go Gadget-Pinky" technique. Regardless of what style is chosen, the difficulty of the Orange Fret Button is undeniable.

What about you, Destructoid community? How well did you fare the first time you and the Orange Fret tangled? More than likely, it wasn't very pretty.
