Okay, I have a lot to say in reply to a lot of nice comments and a VIDEO OF DEATH to put here, so I’m just gonna make this new blog post.
About the streak, I think our streak ended when a pull-off got me. Something like that. And yeah, that was gay when it kept saying four stars for about 300,000 points! Maybe the stars are just how each of us did, because it kept spazzing out by saying you got five and I got four, and then you got four and I got five.
You should sign up for that tournament on www.guitarhero.com! It’s just where you have to play certain songs in face-off and pro face-off against random opponents within 24 hours. It closes at midnight, though, so if you wanna give it a shot, you’ve gotta be quick and read this comment! YOU WIN A T-SHIRT IF YOU WIN!! !!! I’ve signed up on Hard, so if you DO enter, then we might not see each other.
Oh, ya, and I saw Roy on Hard today. Didn’t play him though, I was busy 5-starring every song up to Tier 4 or 5 on Expert. And I was playing against other people on Pro Face-Off, lost one, really close, fun match, nice to play against someone of about my skill level, and then I won one by a MILE. I only, well… DOUBLED his/her score! (They didn’t have a mic.) And no, I didn’t get four points, I got 180,000!
Oh, and a question about the lefty flip! What happens if you lefty flip someone twice in a row? Does it just go back to right handed? Haha, just wondering.
And EVERYONE will get to Hard at SOME POINT! Next door Harry will be there in five years, next door Tom will be there next millenium, Ped’ll be there in about three years, maybe two years if he’s lucky. You, Si, shouldn’t take too long, it’s just that bitchin’ orange key that you have to really get used to. And then there’s the REALLY tough pull-off techniques, like full sweeps (5,4,3,2,1,2,3,4,5 with one strum) and zig-zags (2,3,4,3,2,3,4,3,2,3,4,3,2 etc…) and no-strum solos (I have me doing one!) I dunno about Em, I wouldn’t be surprised if I saw her soar up to Expert in about three months. 😀
Before I show you the video, as I’m waiting for it to upload, I’ve got a tip for you, Si! That’s unless you haven’t already done it – the Whammy Mania achievement! Using the whammy on every single held note is IMPOSSIBLE, well, at least on Medium it is, I wasn’t gonna touch Easy. Anyway, to get the achievement, just get some sellotape, and TAPE THE WHAMMY BAR DOWN! Ha ha, it was INGENIOUS! Just as long as you hit all the held notes, doesn’t matter how long for, then you’ll get the achievement when you finish the song. And that’s 15G in the bag!
Oh, and I have an idea on how to get The Inhuman Achievement (That’s its real name!) and the star power one. You play Through the Fire and Flames on Easy/Medium/whatever floats your boat, except for Expert, and then I play on Expert! I reckon that the rock meter will act like it’s on the lower difficulty level! And the achievements don’t say you have to do it SOLO to get them! Complete it using Star Power three times and then I’d get the achievements, and then we could swap over and do it again! That’s probably how everyone’s got it.
Woot! It’s done! Only a short one, the last 200 notes of the longest streak I’ve ever pulled off. Looks quite cool, too! I wish I had recorded the whole song, but I didn’t really EXPECT a 746 combo. If there was an achievement for 750, I would have thrown my Xbox out of the window! Luckily, the next one was at 1000, so I let it off. The reason why I’m on Hard instead of Expert is because I like the solo, and I’m not that great on Expert at this song anyway, so ha.
Okay, as this is quite a short one, I can ease up on the compression. So, you can either have the 4MB Low Quality version, or the 7.5MB High Quality, which is double resolution and you can see my note counter have a spaz attack. (Remember, my file share host is CRAP sometimes!)
http://mongmaster.000webhost.org/LGH – Solo Insanity! (H) (HQ).wmv <<< (7.5MB, 640×480, better quality, watch my note counter spaz out.)
http://mongmaster.000webhost.org/LGH – Solo Insanity! (H) (LQ).wmv <<< (4MB, 320×240, lower quality, everything but note counter watchable.)
Okay, I’d better be off! Bye!
(PS: YES YES YES! Okay! I know! I said I’d post Dragon Worlds later, and now is later, and I DON’T HAVE IT HERE! Tomorrow, I promise, really. It’ll be up. Don’t pee yourself.)
