Random Cathy vs. Guitar Hero III

Today, Jim Burdette brought Guitar Hero III.

We've done this before. Our conference room with its dual screen set up makes it a perfect venue for lunchtime competition. Though I've watched in the past, today was the first time I'd ever played.

It was cool. I chose a Japanese pop-star avatar, picked up my plastic guitar, received minimal instruction, and the music began.

The main point of this post...Guitar Hero is SO MUCH HARDER THAN IT LOOKS. In fact, in mid song, my avatar stopped playing, put her face in her hands and sobbed, ponytails bobbing in abject misery. And it was all my fault.

The end of a promising career all because of a silly plastic guitar.

I will avenge you Japanese pop star. I promise!
