Band Hero (I'm Emo?)

When I read my latest posts, I realized why people say that I'm being too emotional. What do you expect? This is my blog and I can write whatever I want. It doesn't mean that I'm being emotional or sad when my posts are all gloomy. You judge me only by reading what I posted, not by what you saw. I'm not mad at the fact that people think I'm being 'emo', but I kinda worried that if you worried for things that you don't need to worry actually. Especially my mom, you don't need to worry to much about me except for my finance :p (yeah I know my mom reads my blog). I'm happy here and I'm doing my best to not let myself washed away to far from studies and important matters~ Sorry if I had ever made you all worried!

Ok enough of sad things for now. I want to share something that made me happy this week~



This is the newest game from Activision, the producer of Guitar Heroes series, entitled Band Hero. Why buy this game when I already have Guitar Hero World Tour and Guitar Hero 5, I hear you asked? These are the reasons:

"Though Band Hero is similar to Guitar Hero 5 in term of gameplay, it still had a lot to offer. Guitar Hero 5 is said to be "extremely diverse" that players will find that there are songs that they like and there are also songs that they will never even touch. Band Hero done a great job in making the songs to be more specific to pop-oriented tracks.

In my opinion, the game is great in bringing family and friends together. There are a lot of more familiar songs to everyone like Love Story by Taylor Swift, She Will Be Loved by Maroon 5, Beautiful Soul by Jesse McCartney and more. The guitar and drum notes are relatively easy compared to Guitar Hero, so it will be more accessible to everyone especially beginners and not-so-hardcore gamers. The Sing-Along feature is a great addition to make the game more karaoke-like as multiple player can sing simultaneously on one song.

To conclude, you can enjoy this game at it fullest when you bring along your family and friends to play. It is more easy and the songs are more specific and mostly well-known to all. If you are a Guitar Hero expert wanting for challenge, then this is game is certainly not for you. I am giving 5 stars because I can finally enjoy my favorite game with my friends."

Pros

- A good game for beginners and those who want to have fun together

- Sing-along karaoke mode is great for party - Many known pop songs

- You still can transfer songs from other Guitar Hero games (DLC, World Tour, Smash Hits and 5)

- 69 of 85 songs in Guitar Hero 5 and 61 of 65 songs in Band Hero can be imported (this feature will be coming to Band Hero PS3 version later)

Cons

- For experienced Guitar Hero players, this game will be too easy

- It is basically the same as Guitar Hero 5

- You need to pay $5.99 and $4.99 to import GH5 and Band hero respectively

    Just as I stated in one of my post, I bought this game so that I can share my interest (maybe addiction is the correct word) with my friends. What's so bad about sharing? Except that if you are not careful you will be penniless~To my friends in Wisconsin, if you want to relax and have fun times together then come over to my house! No 5-star services though

    New College Life In UKM

    After intentionally abandoning my blog for around 6 weeks, I think it's about time I write something about what is currently happening in my life.

    Since the last time I updated, I haven't done anything much. I met some of my friends, and mostly spent my time with my families and explaining to every single one of them about "why" am I not returning to the States. Most of the them accept the fact easily and told me to be strong, work hard in the future and don't make the same mistake (which usually just simplified to "don't play games too much")

    Because of What Someone Said

    So a few days ago, I visited Borders Bookstore in IOI City Mall to get a book for a friend of mine. Incidentally, it is also my favorite bookstore, due to its quite nice selection of books and its location from my house. Anyway, the book that I wanted to buy was The End of Average by Todd Rose. I already finished that book (I want to write about it as well later), so I recommended it to my friend and she asked me to buy one for her. I had an exam on the day after but as far as I'm concerned, reading is more important than any exams that I will most likely forgot in a few weeks.

    Also, each time I visit a bookstore, I will always walk out the store with at least one book. So, besides the book that I intended to buy, I bought two other books because I found it interesting. I know, it is a truly 'good' idea to buy two books when you have an exam tomorrow. In this post, I want to talk about the reason why I picked up one of the books.

    Being Different Is Lonely

    From our ages, I know that I am different from most of my classmates. Naturally, most of them are three years younger than me, but that is not the problem. In fact, I had the most fun surrounded by them. They don't treat me differently just because I'm older. I think I am blessed with the fact that there are others who are older than the average (those who were born in 1993) in the batch.
    I think I am not as matured as someone of my age should. But then again, there's no guideline on how matured a person should be or how you to be a mature person. Though my guidelines are basically these two: when you can prioritize and you can be responsible towards your actions. I don't know if I have these two qualities, but I know I am working towards it, slowly but surely.
    Anyway, being older doesn't make me automatically different from the others. But there are certain things that make me feel.. different, and sometimes isolated. Like at this moment of writing, I am overwhelm…
