Yesterday I beat Misirlou on expert, it is probably the hardest song in the game but once I got past the 35-40 percent mark I was rolling along. If you don't believe me I can put a pic on a blog with the top rockers thing on quick play, my name will be there.
Yesterday I beat Cowboys From Hell on expert on Guitar Hero. I got 71% notes hit which is bad but its a pass. I know that I'm not the best in the world at Guitar Hero but I'm pretty happy that I was able to beat the game on expert before Guitar Hero 2 comes out.
The World Series is set and it looks to be a classic. The American League Champion Detriot Tigers had a wonderous regular season, they had the best record in the Majors at the all-star break. However, they hit a roadblock during the second half and lost the division to the Minnesota Twins, they still got into the playoffs by winning the wildcard over last year's champs the Chicago WhiteSox. They played the New York Yankees in the first round of the playoffs and I thought they were finished. The Yankees won game 1 but choked and were eliminated by the Tigers in 4 games. They then played the Oakland Athletics who swept my pick to win the World Series the Minnesota Twins. The A's were no match for the Tigers bowing down to them in 4 games. A's slugger Frank Thomas went 0-11 in the series. His former teammate Maglio Ordonez had no troubles hitting the baseball as he connected with the walk-off home-run that ended Oakland's season.

The St. Louis Cardinals looked to have their division locked up with 10 games remaining. They faced a scare however and sqeecked into the playoffs only a game ahead of the Houston Astros. The Cardinals were not as bad as there record showed, I picked them to beat the Padres and the Mets. Although I had my doubts when I picked them to beat the Mets but they pulled it out in 7 games. The Cardinals were powered all season by strong MVP candidate Albert Pujols who hit 49 homers and 130+ RBI's despite misising 2 weeks because of injury. The Cardinals have a very strong lineup with Pujols, Edmonds, and Rolen leading the pack. The Cards weakness is that they don't have very strong pitching, they have ace Chris Carpenter but after him the pitching is really weak.
I'm going to go with the Cards because I've gone with them all playoffs and they haven't let me down. May the better team win.
Cardinals in 6 games
Two Halo games have recently been announced: Halo Wars and an Unnamed game that will be made by Peter Jackson, who will be working on the Halo movie. Halo Wars is an RTS game, and looks very good from what I saw on the trailer. Halo Wars will be coming out next year for the 360. I'm guessing the Unnamed game by Peter Jackson will be based on the movie, the movie is coming out in 2008 so I bet the unnamed Halo game will come out shortly after the movie is relased.
The 2 most recent basketball games I played were NBA 2K5 and NBA Live 06, one of them was fun but the other has disasterous. NBA 2K5 was very fun and I enjoyed playing with friends but NBA Live was horrible. NBA Live 07 looks gorgeous but I can't trust EA sports because of their track record on the last NBA game. The NBA 2K series might not look as good as Live I know that they'll deliver in terms of gameplay. So which of the 2 should I get: NBA Live 07, or NBA 2K7.
