I probably should’ve posted this during the week, but it was one of those crazy weeks at work. About 3weeks ago all my gaming friends purchased Guitar Hero 2, the majority of those friends are colleagues at Zazzle. For days I was hearing, “you need to go buy Guitar Hero 2 for the Xbox 360” and how people we staying up till the wee hours of the night playing this game.
So 2 weeks ago, I decided to go on a hunt for my own copy of Guitar Hero 2. I had some Best Buy gift cards and reward points to purchase Guitar Hero, so it had to be from Best Buy. Got busy that weekend, so I actually didn’t start my search until Tuesday. I called my closest Best Buy to make sure they had it and found out is was out of stock. I then proceeded to call the other Best Buy’s close to me and one store said they had 4 of them, so I drove there, only to find out they sold out during the weekend and the person who I talked probably assumed the one’s in stock were for the Xbox, but were for the PS2.
Pretty much no luck finding Guitar Hero in the South bay or Peninsula, the closest store that had them in-stock was in San Fransicso, but I wasn’t that desperate yet. The store that had the PS2 version said they may be getting a shipment that Thursday, so I decided to wait. Called back on Friday to see if any of the stores received any stock, but no dice, they did get an extra guitar controller (So Melanie could jam out with me or a friend), so I picked that up.
It was my birthday that weekend and we were heading up to the Sonoma coast, so while I was buying my controller I asked them to look up stores in the North Bay that had them in stock, 2 places had them, Marin City and San Rafael, and these stores were on the way up to Sonoma. Well, I found my Guitar Hero 2 at Best Buy in Marin City and I brought my Xbox 360 with me to play on my birthday weekend in Sonoma.
So the first time I played was with my buddy Skip after we got back from dinner, we had a fun buzz going on and the game ROCKED!!!! Saturday morning I woke up and immediately started playing again, I guess I played for 4 hours. Well, it’s all downhill from there… I’ve been averaging 4-5 hours a night playing Guitar Hero 2 and I’m totally addicted.
If you have an Xbox 360 or PS2, I highly recommend picking up this game, keep in mind you’ll need to get some rhythm in you to play this game, or you’ll hate it! Below are links that will give you info on the game.
