I thought I was good at this game and now I feel like a complete child. This guy must the hands of a robot to actually do this. I wouldn't be able to keep on after about 2 minutes of this.

Never played one of these Guitar rhythm games, and probably never will. And Dragonforce isn't exactly my normal musical taste, although they're certainly very entertaining.

But that looked like the Hardest. Thing. Ever.

Congrats to iamchris4life, and I hope his hands feel better soon.

I'd be lucky to pass that song on medium (I think I did, once). I'd be booed off the stage in expert before I even started playing. ;)

Amazing, really.

That's one of the most insane gameplay vids I've ever seen. Activision should make this guy a unlockable character in GHIV.

I gave up this song when I found out I couldn't complete 3% of it. Plus, GH3 wasn't fun to me. GH2, On the other hand, Was a blast.

It reminds me of the commercial where an overweight kid is playing a game, wins, starts to cheer, becomes out of breath, and then something about being a loser is said.

Yes, he beat the hardest song ever with 100%- probably would have an easier time winning a mega jackpot. But in the end- what does he get out of it, not even an achievement point!

That didn't look so hard.


Seriously though...that guy should get a solid gold guitar or something.

Don't play any games from before this gen then. There are tons of games where you don't even get a game over screen it just restarts.

That was amazing to watch. Congrats iamchris4life.

I know... it was a joke ;) I personally buy games on PS3 over 360 because I hate the achievement system.

Impressive, but the only Dragon Force I care about was a game on Sega Saturn that was developed by Sega and published by Working Designs. :wink 2:

For some strange reason I have a personal vendetta against this song. It took me a little while to get it on medium, and even then I'm only at about 85% complete. I keep trying it on hard and it blasts me right off stage every time at <10%. I'd be happy just to get to the point where I can finish it on hard, forget expert.

Anyway, that was quite an amazing vid. I would love to know what the technique behind that two-handed fretwork was.

What technique?.. you press the button when the color comes down as per usual :p

In GH, certain notes (indicated by the white dot not having a black outline) you only need to strum the first note, and the rest can just be pressed

I am quite aware of what hammer ons and pull offs are. My question was more along the lines of how he decided what fingers went where and why. One does not exactly have time to think during that song.

So is this the first time someone has actually proved to do it? I was actually under the impression that this happened a long time ago.

Ofcouse, I just got GH III a month ago(which is the 1st one I bought) so maybe I'm not quite aware of the scope of things.

Probably pure practice and memorization then. The notes aren't random so if you play it enough you know exactly what notes to hit. Practice it on slow and build up.. then eventually no thinking is needed :)

Wow. And I felt accomplished just getting through that song on Easy mode...

Kudos, to excellent eye-hand coordination and having a lot of free time. :)
