That is the ultimate question, isn’t it? In case you haven’t had the $250 to spend on Guitar Hero: World Tour Full Band Kit AND another goddamn Wiimote (you need all 4 to play 4-player), you may not be aware of the dilemma that is currently plaguing 20-somethings across the nation. I know, I know, Taylor Swift and Joe Jonas just ended their tumultuous relationship, but as consumers we can’t let that get us down. Oh, the economy is in a recession? Tell me something I don’t know. Now that all your excuses have run out, it’s time to invest in a brand new video game lifestyle enhancer: enter GHWT.
The concept is nothing new; Rock Band pioneered the full band gaming experience almost a year ago, but the industry’s old stalwart Guitar Hero has entered the realm with flying colors. Literally, the colored notes fly at you and continue flying in front of your eyes even after your console of choice has been turned off (nothing some warm milk and an Ambien can’t fix!). World Tour boasts 4-player, full band action with a track list worth noting to keep you rocking all night/day/week long.
There is no answer because the question is rhetorical. Tricked again, readers! Why would you want to spend oodles of hard earned skrilla on drinks for good looking women at the bar when you can pretend to play music in front of your all-male friends for a fraction of the cost (family deals going on at Pizza Hut as we speak). The promise of GHWT is a promise that ALWAYS delivers, just try out “Eye of the Tiger” with 3 other friends. Whereas the promise of meeting someone almost NEVER delivers (Hollywood girls are so unreceptive to insightful wit).
Remember when you and your friends would play GoldenEye for 6 hours straight, drinking a 12-pack of Coke each and eat Cheetos until you lost your fingerprints in a coating of chemically created “cheese”? Those days can still be yours! GHWT will satisfy the curiosity of even the casual-est of gamers (read as: your girlfriend, sister, or any female you know). So quit your bitching about the economy, the Red Sox, or anything else that gets you down in life. I guarantee once you play “Go Your Own Way” with the band you’ll have more perspective (than you ever wanted) on your life and where it’s headed.
