Rock On

I can't believe that it actually came! My Guitar Hero 3 replacement disc came in the mail late last week.

Even though I do not have a surround system to take full advantage of the remastered disc, I do believe I hear  a richer sound when playing. Of course it could just be me and it's all in my head.

Well at least I got a free guitar faceplate out of the whole thing.

Good News, Bad News: Guitar Hero Edition

The bad news:

Fedex had a package from me but had the wrong address so I haD to pick it up at the depot. It was from Redoctane  but it was not my Guitar Hero 3 replacement disc that they say I should have ALREADY received?!?

The good news:

It was the thank you gift for sending in my Guitar Hero 3 disc to be replaced, that I have not already received. It's already on my guitar waiting for the game to show up.

I've contacted Activision support, but with it being the weekend I'm obviously not expecting a speedy response. I've waited this long what's a little longer right?

I know I was less than positive about the forthcoming Aerosmith Guitar Hero, but if it was out now I'd totally pick it up to start playing again.

Now if you excuse me I'm going to play some air guitar on my fake guitar.

Hard Too Rock Without Music

It was an easy decision to put in for the Guitar Hero 3 replacement Wii disc. If any game should not be in mono it's a music game. The problem now is that I'm faced with three to fours weeks sans Guitar Hero.

If this was any other game it would be a non issue, but the casual gamer aspect of Guitar Hero really makes it a very sticky game for me.

Did any of you go in for the replacement disc? How long did you wait for your Digital Dolby surround copy to arrive?

Guitar Hero III Facebook Application

I never add applications on Facebook. I don't want to be a vampire, werewolf, slayer, etc. I don't want to pass around an internet bear or see what happens when I forward that damn husky.

That being said, I just added an application called Guitar Hero III Stats that I actively have been searching for.  To have my Guitar Hero Stats displayed on my profile.

The application is powered by Gamestrata who seems to be a site where you can track your scores and accomplishments in the games you play. Think 2008 version of that high score page in 1980's video game magazines. I can't seen to find anything much about them except a job posting where they say we build Facebook/Open Social/Etc apps but our business isn't based on these apps (yeah right) and We don't like the word 'web 2.0' (who does not like web 2.0?). They might not be all bad since they do support Open Social right? Of course it means more potential eyes (eyes=$$$) for their applications if they do support it.

The application only supports GHIII for the Wii, XBox 360 and PS3 for the time being as it pulls your stats off your guitarhero.com profile. For all this to work you still need to link your site profile with your online game system profile (they give you an identifying code on the online menu of the game).

There is also another Facebook application called Guitar Hero 3 that can do the same but supports all online systems (PC, Wii, XBox 360, PS3 & PS2). This one might be better for those of you who have been playing Guitar Hero for years of have the game on multiple systems.

Three Years

My little man is three years old. Where did the time go?

We had his birthday a weekend early and Donna did a great job getting everything ready for the event. Because when you're three it certainly is an event.

Luckily the weather cooperated for us. Rain was forecast but it was sunny and not super hot like in previous years so all his little cousins and friends could play outside.

Oh and he really likes Pixar's Cars.
