You need to get your ears fixed, and brainz(just in case you happen have one. uhh ehh... your OWN, stupid).

I didn't say every song on here was bad(at least if I did I misspoke). Hell, I like a lot of them, I just think when you add Attack Attack and Paramore to list of "Guitar Heroes" you've gone a little bit to far.



You know what! I'll summarize my thoughts on the game right now!!!

I know, I just thought it was humorous and tangentially relevant due to the first frame.

With these yearly iterations with only about 20-30% songs that I know and like, it makes me glad that I have Gamefly and that their distribution center is right next to me in Pittsburgh. Spending way too much money on games before hand for a random hour or so of pleasure.

Dear god, they actually ported ES to a piece of celery!

I don't understand, how was it relevant? The game came out over a month ago.

It genuinely saddens me how hard they're trying to do that. I'm glad TB:RB kicked its ass so badly.

I took it more as a "ages 9 - 15... who rate games without playing them".
