MAKES ME SAD I DON’T OWN GUITAR HERO WORLD TOUR
About a dozen of you have e-mailed me to ask why we haven’t mentioned that Chimaira’s “On Broken Glass” (from The Infection, natch) is now avail as a free download for Guitar Hero World Tour.
So. Did you know that Chimaira’s “On Broken Glass” is now avail as a free download for Guitar Hero World Tour?
Above is a video of the song being played on “expert,” which looks pretty friggin’ hard to me. Since I don’t actually own Guitar Hero World Tour, I’m gonna hafta wait ’til a friend buys it to try it out for myself.
In the meantime, the official Xbox 360 website has an interview with Chimaira keyboardist/electronics magician Chris Spicuzza. Spicuzza is apparently the member of the band all the other members of the band call when they’re having computer issues. I think we all a friend we call when we’re having computer issues (unless you are that friend), and most of the time that friend has some crazy-sick Xbox set-up… which Spicuzza does, indeed, hav such a set-up:
Now we understand you’re a bit of a serious gamer as well, and because you’re on the road a lot, you’ve had a custom rig created for your gaming needs. Can you tell us a little about it? Was it expensive? Is it as heavy as it looks?
For a while gaming pretty much consumed my spare time. I always wanted to game but the guys in my band don’t want to sit there and watch me play. My solution was building my own rig so I can game wherever and whenever. I didn’t want to spend much so I used a 15” HDTV from home and mounted it on a metal arm that swivelled vertically. Mike Pierce from Scorpion Case built the rig. It’s quite heavy and takes up a good portion of the back lounge couch. I’m still very happy with the result. I’m debating making a more practical Xbox travel rig. If only I was best friends with Ben Heck who built that pelican case Xbox …
