All of this stuff went into my link blog, but is interesting enough that I wanted to post about it.
However, I’m tired and have to get up early tomorrow so all you get is links 😛
Creating impossible deadlines has a tendency to be more expensive in the long run (why a game patch rendered some windows machines unable to boot)
On a side note (just so this post isn’t pure links) the other day I had a go at some of the Guitar Hero 1 songs (which I’d never played), and I was amazed at how much better the note tracks were compared to GH3. And thinking back at the GH2 songs I know and love, it’s pretty much the same thing.
I hope Activision and Neversoft hire some better musicians to produce the note tracks for GH4 because 3 isn’t any fun at the high levels. I’m currently on set 7 of expert mode, I can only finish “Knights of Cydonia” and I don’t think I’ll ever get further than that. I never finished the last boss battle of hard mode, and I “wussed out” of the battle with slash on expert because it was just stupid.
I could of course be proven wrong, I didn’t think “Pride and Joy” (the end of set 6) on expert was ever going to happen either but after a few days of practice I managed to pull it off.
