Guitar Hero II: "Freebird! Wooo!"
Posted: Wednesday November 8th, 2006 by

For those of you that have encored the "Face-Melters" set at Stonehenge, know what this comic is all about.

For everyone else... the following is littered with spoilers.
Read at your own risk.


One of the new additions to Guitar Hero is the crowd request for an encore when you've successfully completed a set. During the encore something special always happens on stage. So, when I tore through Hangar 18 in the Face-Melters set, I knew something special was coming, I was playing in Stonehenge after all.

I knew what song was coming; I'd seen it on the Guitar Hero website. And, I couldn't resist a laugh as the game asked me over and over again if I was sure I wanted to play on. When I clicked yes the final time the cutscene started. From the heavens came a UFO. Apparently they wanted the hear Freebird too. (Thus the comic.)

I have to say, I'm really enjoying Guitar Hero II. More than I thought I would, which is saying a LOT. I played until my fingers hurt... then Taks got home, and we played Co-Op until I couldn't feel my fingers at all. I had been playing the game so long that when I looked away from the TV, everything in the living room seemed to "levitate". (Not a new effect, I've done that more than once on Guitar Hero I.)

Sure some of the vocalists are terrible. But the songs are fun to play none the less. I'll have to play through a few more times before I can tell you guys what my favorite solo song is. But, without question, my favorite co-op song is Thunder Horse from Adult Swim faux-band Deathlok. The lead and rythm sections just seem to cater to Taks and my preferred playing styles respectively.

In short, I love this game. Now, if The Ant Commandos follow up my suggestion for how to handle Star Power... it will be even better. **crosses fingers**
