Rock Band

Seriously. This game is so much fun, even without the drums.

Perhaps I should explain. Back in August, I got a nice bonus from work and used part of it to get an Xbox 360 and also Guitar Hero 2 on which I had so much fun and got to (kind of) live out that teenage guy dream of playing lead guitar on some songs I loved like "Carry On My Wayward Son" and "Sweet Child O' Mine." For Christmas, Sheryl got me Guitar Hero 3 with the new wireless guitar controller and with gift cards I got the game only version of Rock Band and a USB mic. Now, I might have lost most of you by this point, but the real version of Rock Band comes with a mic and guitar controller and drumset. So I've got the game and the guitars and mic, but no drums. And I start playing.

And gang, this game is so much fun. When playing by yourself, it's basically Guitar Hero, or even Karaoke Hero with the mic. But with others? Best party game ever. For a bunch of people just in front of the TV, jamming on guitars or screaming their lungs out to Faith No More's Epic... there are no words, but there might be video somewhere.

My personal favorites are Boston's Foreplay/Long Time and Bon Jovi's Wanted Dead or Alive, although when I sang the latter, Kinsey said I sounded like a girl. Even Sheryl's gotten into playing bass with me, while I shred on lead guitar. And that's the sign of a great, great game.

Faith No More's "Epic" and Bon Jovi's "Wanted Dead or Alive"? Wow. You and I have such odd connections.

I need to have you over to play GH3 on PS2. I will certainly defeat you.

Yes, this is a challenge.
