Frets on Fire

While PC gamers are usually pretty high horse about gaming, the fact that PC’s never get stuff like Guitar Hero is one of the biggest drawbacks when shying away from console games.  But hey, why shouldn’t you be able to enjoy the awesomeness?  Frets on Fire is a free downloadable PC port of the Guitar Hero game style, and while it lacks the geek-cool appeal of having a sweet little Gibson SG style controller to play with, the gameplay is damn fine (as is the ability to port in the GH soundtracks). 

Seriously, folks:  prepare to completely ignore your work, family, and life.  Frets on Fire kicks monster ass.

Bonus points awarded to the designers for appropriating the album art for Elvis Costello’s ‘My Aim is True’.

    Also, if you have the 360 X-plorer controller, you can make it work on your computer to play Frets on Fire: per Kotaku

    But the real question, can you apply your massive shredding skills to imperss the soccer moms and skate-shoe wearing kids at your local Wal-Mart? No? Then you’re probably not a loser, like me.

    I can get 95% acuracy on easy, if I try reeeeaaaaaalllll hard.

    Then (for some strange reason) I am told I can’t play anymore and I have to “Go to work” or “Feed the cats” or “Bathe”.  Ugh, They just don’t understand.  Stoopid voices in my head.
