Okay, GHIII purchased. I played for a while yesterday, and now that I'm at work, while my hand appreciates the break, the rest of me wants to get home and do some more.

Just like several other weird controller games, I couldn't get the excitement of it until I actually got it home and gave it a try. I'm such a mark for videogame peripherals. My Eye-Toy, microphones and DDR pads agree.

*nodding*

G-ds, this game is addictive.
Yet...I suck so badly at it.
Do you think they'll ever release a controller for southpaws?

At this point, I think I should just resign myself to sitting back and watching my two guys play...

Menolly: There is a 'lefty-switch' mode you can select from some option screen (I don't know which one it is on GHIII), but that lets you use the guitar as a left-handed guitar.

I got Rockband for X-mas and it allows you to switch the controller for lefties. Check and see if GHIII has the same option.

Now that Beorn has a PS3, he'll probably get Rock Band for his birthday (unless a Wii version finally comes out, I prefer that interface)...

There's a lefty control switch??? Leave it to my two righties to not tell me about it...

Yup! My lovely wife got it for me. We had x-mas eve at our house this year and by 9:00 PM the entire family, included extended relatives, were playing. Although I must admit, the most effective group was me on lead, my wife on bass, my brother on drums and my female cousin doing vocals! Most addictive party game ever!

I hear Rock Band is superior to Guitar Hero. You get multiple insturments, which allows for a full band and thus more complex gameplay.

That and it has BOC's Don't Fear the Reaper. I also hear they're coming out with a Cowbell controller, for more accurate bandplay.

Well...
If no release date for the Wii happens before Beorn's birthday in August, I guess we could get the one for his new PS3 instead...

I'm fairly positive they will not be releasing Rockband for the Wii.

Well...it is addictive. My kids were playing all morning a couple of days ago, and they asked me to try (in an obvious attempt to humiliate the old man) it out.

Well I sat down, picked up the AXE, and proceeded to kick ass. I scored 91% on each of my first attempts! Now, I am in Japan (level 7), and have accumulated 1.3 million points, and have a shitload of cash.

Some qurestions: Is there any advantage, other than aesthetics to upgrading your guitar? Also....why won't the band stop setting cars on fire? You'd think that after a few fires...the thrill would be gone.

It took me 5 attempts to getr through Tom Morello, but beat Slash on my 1st attempt.

Needelss to say, the kids are freaked out that I am rockin' steady.

To be fair...we are still all anly on "easy", but I still love the fact that I am the best in the house so far.
