Terrible news

I walked into a GameStop this afternoon, arms laden with every Guitar Hero game that I had ever purchased, fully intent on trading the lot in and buying Rock Band 3 with that scary new controller. The register biscuits drooled over my loot, only to tell me that the new guitar has been pushed back to next month. I didn't want to believe them, so walked over to Best Buy and asked the person walking around media department with a clipboard and walkie talkie, trying very hard to look like she knew what she was talking about, and they had even less information. I was crushed, but I bought Rock Band 3 anyway, deserted the entire Guitar Hero franchise by trading in all of the games for a pre-order, and now will just have to wait until next month. I had not made up my mind until I got out of my car in the parking lot and the gods of gaming decided to turn me away.

At least this way I will be able to get through all of the songs at a reasonable difficult before starting over again. The same thing happened when I made the move to drums, and even then I have yet to make the leap from Hard to Expert. Having worked up the courage to be terrible again once I can only hope that I have the stones to do it again.

I would buy the keyboard, but I am already having a difficult time justifying the expense when I know that it will eventually get left behind and replaced by terrible games that I have rented. And yes, this means that I am still playing Dark Star One for no good reason. I have been doing the same thing in the game for the last several days, am still amused by it, and don't know why.

Repressed childhood fantasies of being Captain Kirk and following my penis around the galaxy, blowing shit up and chasing Technicolor women. Or not.
