Guitar Hero: World Tour was released a few days after my 25th birthday. The release was being treated like a Big Deal because rhythm games were the white hot genre of the time, and World Tour was the first entry in the series that would support vocals and drums. The game was bundled with a new drum set that was less noisy than the Rock Band equivalent and split its pads into a row of three drums and a second row of two cymbals.
I was fed up with my Rock Band drums and wanted the set Day 1, but my apartment at the time - my first since leaving school - was a honeypot for package theft. It ended up being the first and last time I made the trek to GameStop for a midnight launch, failing to realize that I'd have to carry the heavy full set home on my own, and there were a good twenty blocks separating the game store from my building's lobby. Oops.
When I regained consciousness a few days later (ha!), I had a blast with the new drums and appreciated the presentational flourishes that Neversoft had given the new game. I wasn't a fan of being forced to commit anywhere from three to seven tracks at a time, but making progression less linear isn't a bad thing, and neither were the silly cutscenes, character creator (finally!), and the confounding music editor, which was online for barely a week before semi-awesome rock remixes of The Legend of Zelda had made it into the catalog.
Where World Tour failed to click with me, though, was the music. Rock Band 2 had beaten Guitar Hero to market by only a few weeks, and there was a disturbing amount of overlap between the two setlists. Sure, there were a few exclusives - Michael Jackson's Beat It was a big get, as were the three tracks by Tool (which made my then-girlfriend extremely happy) - but most of the songs that had me very excited when they were announced for the Rock Band sequel had been played, replayed, and played out by the time its competitor hit the streets. DLC could potentially do a good job of increasing that diversity, in no small part due to the inclusion of a free download of the complete, brand new Metallica album for those that had bought the CD, but Guitar Hero DLC was tucked off to the side in Quick Play, whereas new Rock Band songs were seamlessly integrated into the career mode without a thought.
So, World Tour stagnated. The drums still got heavy use with Rock Band, but I fell short of the halfway point in the game's career mode, if my achievement unlocks are any indication. I continued to go all in with Rock Band from then on out of appreciation for their weekly DLC updates and seamless integration of said songs, but other than enthusiastically picking up Guitar Hero: Metallica a few years later, my love affair with Guitar Hero ended there, cast aside for a newer, sexier model with a lot more baggage.
Until this month's Game of the Month, of course.
I'm always happy to rip off a backlog chad that's been hanging for what feels like forever, so realizing that Guitar Hero: World Tour fit that description bumped it up in the priority list significantly, ahead of some of the other games I hadn't played at all. My Xbox 360 guitar is heavily beat up, with a loose whammy spring, an unresponsive orange fret, and a strum bar that's lost a lot of its spark, but it was still functional. Without Rock Band 2 eating up so much mindshare, World Tour's awesome set list was allowed to flourish without feeling redundant.
Things got really hairy towards the end of the game, where the difficulty really spikes and gave my crusty guitar a real run for its money, but it was offset by the fact that the final set does an incredible job of sending the game's career out with a bang. And it gives us Ozzy Ozborne singing "La Bamba", which none of us would ever see elsewhere (outside of our nightmares), so there's that.
Speaking of completions that took much too long, I also finished Guitar Hero: On Tour: Modern Hits for the Nintendo DS.
Guitar Hero: On Tour was another Day One, hardware-driven purchase that I made during the franchise's heyday. Reviews were mixed for the game's included grip, which required you to hold your DS Lite like a football to hit its four frets, with many critics citing wrist pain as a serious issue. But similar to how the Virtual Boy never gave me headaches, I never had any issues with the grip. In fact, without the infamous orange fret, I was pretty comfortable playing the game on Hard, a level to which I was never able to comfortably graduate with the console games.
Needless to say, I was a fan, but my interest petered out by the time the sequels were released. I had largely moved on from the DS to my PSP by that point, and the excessive clicking, scratching, and blowing that was required to play the game effectively was starting to make for some uncomfortable commutes, which is where I did most of my portable gaming.
Frank allowing the portable spin-offs to count this month got me excited to pick one of these toys back up again. I decided to start with Modern Hits - the third entry in the sub-series - for the simple reason that it contained the song "Dashboard" by Modest Mouse, whose quirky beats and bizarre music video will forever remind me of the student center when I was in grad school. I probably should have done some research beforehand, though, as Modern Hits' career mode is very bloated. In addition to jumping around between five different venues to complete pre-selected sets, you have to spend a lot of time repeating songs and grinding to earn more fans and unlock subsequent shows.
My old man wrists couldn't master the grip like I could when I was younger, but the game is still a lot of fun and plays surprisingly well for how slapdash the strum mechanics are. I don't have much to say about the music as the so-called "modern" tracks are now as much as twenty years old and probably don't feel as fresh as they used to, but they work well enough. Unlocking that last performance really felt like a slog towards the end, though.
I've shot myself in the foot again and picked up yet another platform - a Neo Geo CD - which I plan on outfitting with an SD Loader once my shipment comes in. There's no icon for it, but I've added it just below its cartridge-based sibling in my list, whose fate is uncertain at this point. The full bundle is worth quite a bit of money, but finding a buyer is tricky.
On the Guitar Hero front, I've started on Warriors of Rock, which will likely end up being my last console-based Guitar Hero before the month is out. I've also started On Tour: Decades for the DS, which is progressing much faster than Modern Hits. Maybe I'll be able to finish both it, and the original On Tour? We'll see.
I was feeling the rhythm this week, and I realized I've played almost every Donkey Kong game I own this year. So I just 100%'d Donkey Kong Jungle Beat for the first time. I've played the Wii version through a bunch of times (not this year, that's asking too much), but I only played the original once, in high school. The bongo control scheme didn't gel with me back then, but it's really grown on me! Jungle Beat is a strange game that works really well, even if it's completely divorced from Rareware's influence. Ironically, the fake final boss is harder than the true one, as you get less HP and he has fewer moves that give you an opening to counterattack. Won't miss that fight.
I beat it with one of my glorious four pairs of DK Bongos. This particular unit is labelled "E3" on the underside of each drum. Few others exist with that printing, suggesting to me that mine was used on the E3 2004 showfloor, during the Jungle Beat demo. I really want to verify that, but there's no good way to do that.
I've already listed it in my sale thread. As a solo player, this is one of their worst. About 35% of the bonus games are 2+ player only. I think this game MIGHT be a bit more fun with 2P. It really is not very good as a 1p game. It's not terrible, but I usually love Warioware games. Not this one.
I'm back from my vacation and have recorded all of the titles since I left. I've also not heard from Antipop so I reached out to Bill to become the owner of the OP (for a little while - happy to give it back to him when he's ready). We're up to 60+ clears on the month and if he's not around we still want to get them recorded. I'm not sure when I will get access to update the OP, but I'll be reaching out to Pop soon to get his okay on that.
Since the month is nearly over here's a small update on clears Congrats to @ErickRPG as he's retaken the overall lead with 114 vs. @SupremeSarna's 113 1. 10 clears - ErickRPG and myself - I will be posting my 10th clear asap 2. 7 clears - Renaissance2K 3. 5 clears - legendrko25 and SupremeSarna 4. 4 clears - BloodPuppetX, TalonJedi87 and EB
10th of Sept, 88th overall, 5th title Super Mario Kart
Beat this for the RTT GotM. I barely recall playing this back in the day and man could it be frustrating at times. I used my SNES mini and save states at the start of most races and for 2-3 I put a save state in the middle as the amount of cheap things this title can throw at you gets absurd later on. Also the button mapping was crap - B and Y for gas & break was not my preferred layout, not that I used breaking much. Also was very slide-y at times. Happy to have knocked it out, beat all 3 cups of the 50cc and all 4 of the 100cc to get the credits to roll.
FYI - I've been talking with Slickriven about him taking over this topic given that antipop hasn't been as active on the site in recent months. antipop agreed this made sense in an email. So, Slickriven now has ownership of this topic and will be able to update the first post directly now.
Thanks antipop for all your hard work keeping this topic up-to-date over the years. Thanks Slickriven for taking it over.
Thanks @bill - I will be taking over this thread and hope to keep it as unchanged as possible. Antipop did an excellent job and I only hope to continue that tradition. I'll be working to make a big update to get in all of the game clears I've been recording already for September that simply haven't been pushed to the OP with Pop's absence.
As for 'what happened to Pop', I told him that I wouldn't share/speak for him so I won't make a comment about that. Bill is correct in his comment that Pop simply hasn't been overly active since late June. Ultimately I would love to just 'take over' this thread for a while, until he comes back, so I'm hoping he's back before too long.
And before @SupremeSarna asks for new badges... I won't be looking to add any this late into the year. But I will be 'responsible' for handing them out, so if you think you deserve one let me know. Also when you post about beating a new title, please indicate at that time if you feel it counts towards a badge you haven't earned yet. Basically if you don't care about badges, then I won't be either But if you do care, I'm more than happy to assign them to you. Note too that 90% of the badges were defined by Pop so I will miss his guidance on that the most.
As stated, I hope to keep this as smooth and unchanged as possible, but if you have any questions, suggestions, etc just shoot me a PM. Happy gaming!
I got you @Kommie - that was your 45th title. If you missed some of the convo above, I'm working on updating the OP now, trying to do 1 user at a time, did myself first and phew editing the OP with all of that data in there is a challenge. I'll do your now 4 Sept titles next.
> And before @SupremeSarna asks for new badges... I won't be looking to add any this
> late into the year.
That's to be expected, heh. I would like to propose a possible reward for whomever completes the most games at the end of the year. Perhaps one badge could be created (starting next year) as a Bonus badge, and the person with the most clears at 11:59 pm on Dec 31 chooses what form that bonus badge will take for the next year's challenge. The winner's choice wouldn't be the permanent theme of that badge, as the next year's winner would re-theme it. It would encourage serious competition without filling up the badge pool year after year.
As you pointed out, I'm no longer in the lead, so I don't mind contributing this concept.
@Lunar I have that Persona recorded, am about to update your listing, check back later to see if everything looks good for you.
@SupremeSarna You had mentioned that idea to me before and I think that's cool - pretty sure it's a 2 horse race at this point for most games by the end of the year as I'm in a distant 3rd and don't expect to push for much more than right around where you 2 are currently at. We can look into that as we get closer to mid/late December - who knows what'll happen between now and then.
@Renaissance2K I'm seeing some differences in what Pop had for you and what you have for yourself, please correct me on these:
Nekketsu Kunio-Kun Dodgeball Club (via Double Dragon & Kunio-Kun Retro Brawler Bundle) for you don't seem to have this listed at all - do you still have this? I see you only have a PS5 listed for yourself - Pop didn't have this system listed for you, assume you have it/want it listed? CD - I'm going to try to add an icon for it Strider, Pop didn't have this listed. - GH Encore: Rocks the 80's - I think I missed the post for you completing this, going to assume it was in September?
@SupremeSarna When you listed LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars you said it was on the - Pop didn't have you down for owning a so I've added that system to your list, please correct me if that's inaccurate. I won't update you system count until you confirm, thanks
You all should now be updated, please check to see if you spot any issues/errors - thanks! EB and Kommie, you both fell out of the top 10 on clears with Renaissance2K and legendrko25 taking your places.
For anyone else, if you spot an issue also let me know.
Nekketsu Kunio-Kun Dodgeball Club (via Double Dragon & Kunio-Kun Retro Brawler Bundle) - This was missing from my list. I try to go back to my previous post, copy it, and then use it as the basis of my new posts, but sometimes I miss one. Sorry about that. Don't mean to make things more difficult. I've updated my last post with the corrections you pointed out.
- I got rid of this. I only have a now.
& CD - Both were added this month.
- Strider - I added multiple Strider platforms in the same post, so Pop might have missed this.
- GH Encore: Rocks the 80's - Completed this in September as part of the Guitar Hero binge.
Maybe I should just link to a spreadsheet or something moving forward... Or create a spreadsheet that generates the post output. Hmm.
@Renaissance2K Thanks for the corrections - I have no complaints about how you post and record you own game clears - your method actually makes verification the easiest and now that I've got it down we're all good. I'll make your changes, I caught the add of the NeoGeo CD, but not the GB and I missed the 80's GH clear too, but that's again why your approach helps, so I can catch them later. I used a simple NotePad++ file to track all of my games last year and this, makes it easy for me, though a spreadsheet might work better to do counts/sums and so forth.
11th of Sep, 89th overall, 6th title Mario Kart Super Circuit
Beat this for the 2nd game of the RTT GotM, was a million times more enjoyable and less frustrating vs the SNES title. I've only beat the 5x 100cc and 1x 50cc cups so far, but figure I'll do at least the rest of the 50cc ones as the game overall is quick and enjoyable. Might give the 150cc cups a shot as well.
@EB No bother - from what Pop told me about that badge is you need to beat it with a friend. So if you did, I'm happy to grant the badge. Seems like he didn't intend for 2-player co-op titles to be beat solo, the 'spirit' of the badge is co-op.
@SupremeSarna Sounds good on the 360 and glad you got it fixed. As far as endless games, from what I recall of the general thoughts when they came up in the past was, whenever you felt like you had completed it then count it. So if you hit round 16 and that's good for me. I claimed both Tetris and DK Jr. earlier after feeling like I 'beat enough' of those titles. Reality is some games are short and minimally involved, others are crazy long and seemingly unending, so like Kommie's comment above about quality over quantity - people are going to look at some games differently. If you feel like you beat a game then we'll take your word and go from there. Goal is to get folks playing, beating and talking about games, not judging others for beating a bunch of short, simple games or sticking with 100+ hour long RPGs.
Haha nice @ErickRPG - glad you approve. Being completely frank, 114 games in under about 270 days so far this year is mighty impressive and a lot of gaming. With Sarna just behind you, you 2 are collectively around .85 game/day or basically 6 games every week. That's 3 games per week individually. We're in the 39th week and so if we divide your 114 games by 39 we get 2.92 games/week... if you keep that pace you're likely to get just past 150 games this year - that's nuts and nearly double what Renaissance2K got as high marks in 2020.
Thanks! Just one thing. I think (from counting the icons, unless I counted incorrectly) that I have 15 badges, but the ranking count has me at 14? Also, #72 clear down: Yoshi's Crafted World on Switch. This was OK. It's not really the type of game I usually enjoy, but this was fun at times. I think that should give me badge #16 (Hoppin' and Boppin' for Yoshi's Crafted World and LittleBigPlanet 3).
I don't have much to say about this one. Based on my fuzzy memory, Decades is nearly identical to the original On Tour for the DS, albeit with a new setlist that's divided up by the decade of its release and some updated aesthetics (venues, guitars, costumes, etc.) that are equally chronistic. Finish one decade of four songs, play an encore, go back in time five years, repeat until you run out of songs.
Not having to cocoon themselves into the past ten years makes for a pretty varied, well-celebrated selection of songs, and not requiring you to repeat said songs ad nauseum to earn fans means the Career mode moves very briskly. Supposedly, the strum tracking isn't as good in this edition compared to Modern Hits, but I honestly couldn't tell any difference. Both iterations of the series seemed to have just as many senior moments, particularly when transitioning between a whammy and a strum, or just strumming repeatedly, especially in both directions.
Minor props go to Vicarious Visions, for including 8-bit versions of their guitars for the 80s venue, and to Activision (gasp, I can't believe I'm giving them props) to using the old Atari-era version of their logo as the game was loading.
The big question is whether or not I'll be able to finish Warriors of Rock in the next three days, given how long the Quest mode seems to be taking. Replaying the original On Tour seems more feasible, given how quickly I was able to plow through Decades. We'll see. To use a rock reference, it's the final countdown.
I beat Trip World, an obscure Game Boy game downloaded through VC. I used save states on the final boss, which I'm not proud of... but it's an arduous gauntlet at the end of an otherwise easy game. You get no extra lives or continues, which seriously hurts the game in my eyes. It's only 20 minutes long, fortunately.
Now I can buy other obscure games on my new Japanese 3DS!
September is almost up, any games beat from you folks? @Best1989 @Dasgessabel @DragonmasterDX @Frank @Gypsy @jdwooley14 @nonamesleft @RobotVM @Scott @tonymack21
In case you missed the change, I am recording and updating the OP for this thread now in AntiPop's absence from the site - hopefully for only a little while. Best I believe you normally post a few days after the start of the following month and that's still fine, I simply wanted to reach out to all folks who haven't reported a game this month to possibly re-engage you with the thread or to just see what's going on... and to make sure I didn't miss a posted clear from one of y'all.
Looks like DarkFact and JD both potentially dropped off of GTZ
With just 1 day left in Sept we're looking at 74 completions this month.
I'm proud of myself practicing a little restraint. I was going to get Monkey Ball, but told myself with Metroid coming out Oct 8th I think that will keep me busy for awhile. Plus that seems like a nice ScareTober game!
Yall I hate this. I'm having trouble with both my sound bars on two different TVs. I have a really nice sounding Klipsch one but it has some power saving mode (this is it's NORMAL mode of operation you can not disable), and take a while to "wake up" when it hears something. I've had that issue in the past but fixed it mostly, now it's back. If the game has complete silence, I will miss the first 2 seconds of what they are saying.
And the one in my bedroom, a $170 LG one, seems like maybe the middle woofer is out, because some times, the voices sound a little muffled or weird. But some times they sound fine. I really don't want to have to spend $200 on a new sound bar, but I might not be able to play PS5 with these annoying sound issues.
I knew I wanted to play through Warriors of Rock at some point this month because of how far separated it is from the other games in the franchise. Rather than projecting the player onto an avatar of a guitarist working their way up the ladder to stardom, Warriors of Rock introduces a giant mechanical monster that (for some unclear reason) is a threat to rock music, a legendary hero and their enchanted guitar that are frozen in time, and a bunch of skilled rockstars that are actually harboring latent alter egos that - if they work together - are capable of finding the legendary guitar, freeing the legendary hero, and serving the beast a legendary defeat.
What this means for the player is gimmicks. Lots and lots of gimmicks. Each avatar has a cool power-up - either related to pumping your Star Power or saving your ass if you mess up - that gets even stronger once they transform into their final form. There's a sequence halfway through the game's Quest Mode that takes the place of a mid-boss where you play through a celebrated rock album, start to finish, in one sitting. The inevitable final battle is backed by a set of heavy metal tracks, as usual, including one that was composed especially for the game's release. All-in-all, especially after playing through seven other Guitar Hero titles just before this one, the power-ups add some well-needed variation, especially during the few moments where you can combine heroes to build on each other's strengths. Neversoft also opted to drop the background layer's frame rate in favor of some juiced up visuals and special effects, which ends up working fairly well after you cut through the thick layer of cheese on top, for those few moments where you can take your eyes off of the highway to take a look at what's going on around you.
This is all window dressing on top of a progression that's a merger of the legacy and modern Career modes. Like later games, you can choose between a number of available sets, but like earlier games, you can choose which of the available songs in each set to play next. This is all well and good, but it's soured by the fact that the game's set list doesn't stand out as anything special. This was the sixth entry in the series - not counting spin-offs - and the third with a full-band focus, so most of the obvious rock staples and inclusions were checked off with previous titles. There are a few exceptions (Bohemian Rhapsody stands out, especially with its custom band choreography), but especially in the second half of the game, the music just starts to dry up with fewer and fewer "can't wait to play" tracks. It's no wonder this was the last Guitar Hero game for a good number of years, and why its eventual follow up set out to narrow the catalog.
The plastic guitars are back in a box for a nap until they're next needed, which may be sooner rather than later. In the meantime, Guitar Hero: On Tour is still on track to be completed, and the new Games of the Month are set to rotate. I already have Until Dawn pre-loaded on my PS5, though there's still time for a renegade voter or two to make the final call on what the Retro Game of the Month will be in October.
@Slickriven I've still been playing stuff, just haven't posted here in a while. I typically like to do a little write-up/review whenever I post a game I've beaten, but I just haven't had the time lately so I keep putting off posting. Anyway, here's my updated listed, new stuff is in bold:
NES - SNES - Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV: Turtles in Time N64 - Super Mario 64 GC - Wii - Wii U - Star Fox Zero Switch - Bowser's Fury, Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Axiom Verge, The Messenger, Super Mario 3D World GB - GBC - GBA - DS - The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks, Pokemon Diamond 3DS - The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, Metroid: Samus Returns, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D 360 - Halo 3: ODST XB1 - PS1 - PS2 - PS4 - PSP - GEN - MAME - Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time
None for me. October should have some hopefully, working on a few. Haven't had the time lately and when I have had time, I just wanted to rest and relax. Got several in the works on PS5 tho and a couple on the old ps2.
> September is almost up, any games beat from you folks?
i dont have anything new to report, ive only just gotten into the second realm on tales of arise and its kinda slow going for me since i play for a couple hours and then edit for awhile since im doing that one on the youtube channel.
maybe i can clear 2 in october and make up for it, IRL has really eaten me up the last 12-18 months.
Thanks for checking in those who did. As Sarna said, Sept is now done and I think we're going to have a 3-way tie for the top clears with @ErickRPG reporting 2x batches of 10, @Renaissance2K beat nearly every Guitar Hero game out there and @Slickriven got in on the action after beating a handful of MAME games on my new Legends Arcade Mini. I was trying to get Forza Horizon 3 fully wrapped but the game crashed on me several times recently so I fully powered my system off... but still got a crash/2, so I un- and re-installed it and that took too long tonight to get the handful of remaining races I wanted done to truly consider it completed... so it ought to be a quick clear for me in October.
Will be trying to get the Sept info and updates from the past few days pushed up soon.
This screenshot is rotated properly. You're just on drugs.
I don't have much else to say that didn't already get mentioned in my On Tour: Modern Hits post, but it bears repeating that I played the crap out of this game upon its first release. I played through the campaign at least twice - first on Normal, and again on Hard, empowered by the lack of an orange fret - and only stopped playing when the random blowing/screaming to activate Star Power was scaring away my fellow commuters.
Playing through the game again after so long, and so shortly after its two follow ups, the game and its setlist is still renting a studio apartment somewhere in my psyche. The first two venues make for an awesome first impression, and the later sets do a great job of demonstrating how the guitar grip can let your fingers fly. It's very no-frills; there aren't a ton of unlockables, and the scenery isn't much to look at. That said, I'm glad Activision's little experiment amounted to a cool little toy, even if Nintendo's era of bolt-on attachments for handhelds didn't really carry on to later generations.
Until the Switch, of course. And now, of course, I'm thinking about what a guitar Joycon would look like. Even the weird Guitar Hero Live variant.
The DS guitar grips have joined their big brothers in the storage box, and I'm filling out the paperwork to have my knuckles and wrists donated to science to study the effects that such a Guitar Hero binge can have on an old man's joints. In the meantime, I'm breaking out the steel underwear and teddy bears in preparation for a month of spooky games, courtesy of the new Games of the Month.
So I've got nearly everyone's entries in for Sept and I started to notice the bottom of the OP was getting screwed up. Reached out to Bill as it is pretty apparent that the OP (and likely any post) has a character size limit and with all of the info that Pop originally put in there, as we get close to 1200 completed games, that limit has been exceeded. I don't know what, if anything Bill will be able to provide as a solution. Right now the entire 'info' section that Pop had in originally has been pushed off of the end of the post. You can see it if you visit an older rev of the thread, like here: https://gametz.com/VideoGame_Discussion/can-beat-g...
I might seek to cut down the list of all users section and possibly remove the ICONS & BADGES section, OR list who has earned those badges instead of applying them to everyone, since each badge when applied to a user's spoiler section is sizeable in terms of characters (around 50 per badge). I don't think the tool that Bill uses supports the 'sticky' option that would be great here, so the OP will need trimmed when we're beating SO many games this year... I mean nearly 1200 in 3/4ths of the year means we could exceed 1600 games total, though 1500 is more likely, but that's a lot of characters needed to list them out.
Keep beating games, just know that the OP's general look has already changed due to that limit and I'm very likely going to be forced to change it more as time goes by. That Monthly Mushroom listing section is a big consumer of characters, so it might get reworked as well. I still want to list that, but by having each user listed eventually 12 times, there is a lot of repeated info.
@Slickriven Would it be better to remove all the game titles, replace them with a number, and dump the specific titles on a Google spreadsheet? (i.e. if someone beat 3 NES games, just put a 3 here, with the titles listed elsewhere?)
