OMFG! Guitar hero + real guitar = Guitar Rising = erection


Ok, ok, this may not be news to everyone, but it's news to me and I am a HOOGE guitar hero fan here so I am surprised that I haven't heard about this (it was actually announced at GDC yea...)

Guitar rising is coming out late this year and it is a PC based guitar hero evolution where you plug in an actual electric guitar and play along to one of 30 pre installed songs. What excites me is, if I know anything about PC games, and I do, then this will get hacked to buggary and we will instantly see all songs you've every wanted to learn to play on guitar appear on here for you to learn. Seriously, I have a feeling this is going to be really big - maybe not as big as Guitar Hero or Rock Band due to the fact you have to fork out for a real guitar, but either way - fucking laarge!

I will do this properly soon...

The short of it is: I started on an Atari ST back in the 80's as a little kid playing Fun School 4 (which I will still stand by as the best educational video game EVAR!) and James Pond with my little brother. Eventually I moved on to PC, specifically Lucas Arts point and click games, The Incredible Machine and Prince of\games\prince :D yay!

However I was converted to Nintendo upon winning a NES shortly after they had just come out. I will forever be in the debt of Golden Grahams for making me the kid who owned Super Mario Bros.

I then stood by Nintendo religiously, especially during the dark ages of N64 and Gamecube , idolizing Shigeru Miomoto as my Jesus and creator of everything fantastic. It was only when Rare were bought by Microsoft, I gave in and submitted my Gamecube to EXT3 on the back of my telly to make space for my new, shiny, bought-on-my-credit-card-and-probably-still-haven't-paid-off-credit-card Xbox.

Oh I also owned a PS2 in brief amounts to play the GTAs, and would sell it as soon as I had raped them. Seriously, I felt like I was sitting in the house with someone who had murdered my family so I just couldn't bring myself to keep the thing. Fucking aids ridden monstrosity of a chav console...

I say that, but then Little Big Planet came out and stole my heart and I now own a PS3 as well. Madness. However, even LBP has taken a backseat to Fat Princess (the only game I play on PS3, and what a game!)
