    “80’s Supergroup?” “Damn Yankees?” Their first album wasn’t released until early 1990 Chobot… slap your writers for giving you bad info. I’ll let you slide this time, but you could have gone with Asia, The Traveling Wilburys, The Firm, heck, even Mike + The Mechanics is more of an “80’s” supergroup than Damn Yankees… (Supergroup yes, but not on the radar until 1990…) You’re still awesome Chobot.

    wow who else is not excited for another guitar hero game?

  3. Chobot says:

    Love the games. Terrified that I’m going to have to buy all of those hard to store peripherals again!

    Jessica’s new hairdo sucks..:-/

  5. Larry says:

    Don’t Know, Rocksmith set the bar pretty high in this Genre. Instead of fake Guitars, they should let you use real ones. 

    • Mikey says:

      False. Rocksmith and Guitar Hero are not even in the same genre. Guitar Hero is entertainment, while Rocksmith is educational. If you want to use a real guitar, don’t go with Guitar Hero. 

  6. kerrell says:

    Yeah Chobot,shred that air guitar! Seriously though I am definitely down for Guitar Hero to make a return.

  7. Drew says:

    Glad I came back for my daily dose of Jess.  I would so take a class from her on “how to watch paint dry in 101 easy steps”.
