I See The Stars Come Out Tonight

February 18, 2010 at 1:59 am (Rock Band) (, , , , , , , , )

Let me start off by saying: I was completely and utterly exhausted when I began working on my FC this evening. Seriously, nothing takes all the energy out of you like a funeral and all the emotional upheaval that goes with it. The fact that I only got about 3 hours sleep last night certainly didn’t help matters either. The net result of all this was that, when I booted up my Xbox, my voice was already shot from all the tears I’d shed throughout the day, and I could barely keep my eyes open. I actually caught myself nodding off mid-song several times during tonight’s session, no joke!

All that being said, you can probably imagine my bleary-eyed surprise when I earned 1st place on ScoreHero for “The Passenger” (cross-platform, no less) after completing a mispathed run! However, I’m still not 100% convinced that my accidental path is truly superior to the one submitted by internetguy87, since both options (3/ vs 3/sk1 on the 4th activation) seem like they SHOULD give you identical squeeze opportunities…though I never earned any extra points out of my 4th activation when following the official path. Of course, that could be attributed to sleepiness causing my squeezing abilities to deteriorate rapidly as the session wore on. I may have to do some further testing on this when I’m not on the verge of passing out for a definitive answer. Better yet, any vocalists out there wanna compare the paths for me? That’d be sweet!
