Guitar Rising: Guitar Hero with Real Guitars

The one thing that sucks about the newest series of hit games where you play “musical instruments” is that you spend hours learning how to play on a plastic toy that you are never going to use after you beat the game. Enter Guitar Rising, GameTank’s newest production.

Guitar Rising will allow players to use any real electric guitar and actively learn how to play real cords. There will be an adapter where players hook up their guitars to their PC or Mac and start playing songs. The game progresses in difficulty to help those that have never played a guitar before. It took me about two years to become even remotely good at playing the guitar, while just the other day I went from being a complete idiot at Guitar Hero to passing every song on medium relatively well. This game seems like one of the better ideas to come out of the video game industry. No release date has been set.

Mitt Romney is Next to Surrender

With all the media attention surrounding elections it sometimes seems like they are pre-decided for us. Mitt Romney is following in Giuliani and Edward’s footsteps and giving up on becoming president in 2008. Yesterday, Romney announced, “In this time of war, I simply cannot let my campaign be a part of aiding a surrender to terror.” Little is known as to what this has to do with his dropped bid, but perhaps it has something to do with obtaining only 286 delegates, compared to McCain’s 697, on Super Tuesday.

Romeny has now left Mike Huckabee and Ron Paul as even remote contenders for the Republican bid, although neither is likely to pull enough numbers to seriously be considered. The candidate for the Democratic Party still remains open with Obama just a few points below Clinton.

Note: The main issue being demonstrated in the video is not whether or not the gentleman was allowed to film (he was allowed to), but the mysterious party swamping which occurred.
