Instrument Only?

#1 Posted by Aurelito (721 posts) -

I hate these fags over at Activision. Why do I have to purchase their fucking useless guitar to play this game? I loved to play this game with console's own controller. are you going to buy one of their stupid unessential guitars to be able to play this game? well I'm not going to be a naive stupid.

The whole point of the game is to play with the guitar controllers. I think if people want to play with a standard controller then OK, but they miss out on a lot of what makes music games special.

Why would you want to play it with a standard controller? Isn't the whole point using the guitars? I don't see why you would play it otherwise.

I have to say I don't blame Activision for only providing instrument support for a game that is about playing instruments.

You are asking why you need to purchase a guitar to play a game called Guitar Hero? Are you sure you're not a "naive stupid"?

Have you actually ever tried playing Guitar Hero with a normal controller? It sucks that way.

You dont have to strum on the controller, i played on expert with it once and actualy made it through the song (Which is fantastic for me.), its easier...... but ya its a stupid way to play, just buy a guitar and learn how to use it.

Just wait "Controller Hero" is out in a few weeks. The Halo3 soundtrack is DLC. It's gonna Rock!

I played the first Guitar Hero with the PS2 Dual Shock, and realized that you might as well not play a music game if you don't have the peripherals.

Well there's payment between me and guitar so I prefer controllers. but the truth is that they don't even ship their games here. I can pirate the game but I can't pirate a guitar can I? 
An I'm cool with controllers.
