Good News Gaming: Guitar Hero 3's Hardest Song On Expert... But At 160% Speed

Plus, Elijah Wood visits a fan's Animal Crossing island and is very polite and a baby dressed as Fatman.


Our mission to bring you the most wholesome and uplifting content of the week continues with another episode of Good News Gaming. We've scoured the internet and put together a little showcase of things happening in the wonderful world of video games.

This week we have an unbelievable achievement from one Guitar Hero 3 player, who has managed to hit every single note on Through the Fire and Flames on expert. That alone is something to be proud of, but this lad did it with the song running at 165% speed--unreal.

In the UK, an initiative is offering games to NHS workers. A variety of developers and publishers are on board, including ZA/UM, Xbox Game Studios, SEGA, Bungie, Deep Silver, and more. If you're an NHS worker in the UK, click this link and grab a game. And thanks for everything you do.

Next up there's a Super Nintendo fish tank. We're going to leave it at that—you really need to see how cool it is for yourself. Top of the wholesome content pile is undoubtedly Elijah Wood visiting a fan's Animal Crossing island and being incredibly polite--proof that he's a very good egg.

In other Animal Crossing news, the Centre for Computing History in the UK, sadly, had to shut its doors, but a replica has been constructed in the game for folks to visit. If that doesn't put a smile on your face, how about the movie Troy but with Age of Empires sound effects? Surely that'll do the trick.

If not, we've got a baby dressed like Fatman from Metal Gear Solid 2, Gabe Newell playing a giant Nintendo DS, and more. Trust us, watch the video, you’ll have a good time. We hope you enjoy watching this video and if you have any positive news from the world of video games that you'd like to share, let us know in the comments. We'll be keeping an eye on what you're saying, and it may show up in a future video.
