The cheap cash cow that is GH III PC

July 13th, 2008 · No Comments · Gaming

It’s not often that I get fed up with a game based on its technical qualities. Usually if I end up hating a game it’s simply because it’s not fun to play at all. Guitar Hero is fun to play. What’s not fun is trying to connect online to another player through the most assinine of network interfaces ever seen on a modern day commercial game – and not succeeding. At all.

Let’s just get one thing straight – I don’t know the details of this “port”, so I don’t want anyone from  Aspyr who may end up reading this to think I’m pointing fingers. This is just a general complaint I feel the need to voice. I don’t need to lay blame on anyone, I just have to get my opinion off my chest, because it’s killing me.

Nevermind the fact that there’s no DLC available for the PC version at all, which in and of itself is a huge dissapointment, but I just can’t excuse the horrible networking troubles I’m experiencing with this game. Private match, quick match, match browsing – it doesn’t matter! One day I’ll be able to connect fine, the next time my friend and I try all we both get are “Failed to connect” errors. Even after restarting our games. Even after restarting our modems. Even after restarting our computers. Even after he updates to the latest version to match me.

I feel sorry for myself and the rest of the suckers that bought the PC version of Guitar Hero. Thank god I have a PS3 now…
