I Wanna Hurt You Just To Hear You Screaming My Name

Ok, this particular session was a true pain in the backside, and all because the path noted in the ScoreHero Wiki wasn’t optimal. Argh! I did a few runs of this song a couple of days ago when my voice was compromised, and it was obvious even then that there was something fishy about the Wiki path (3/, 2/, 3/), since the best score I got when following it was over 1k lower than the top score entered for the track on ScoreHero (by wesker-kun on PS3). Now, I admit I’m not the best squeezer out there, but I can usually manage competitive scores on most DLC tracks. Something was definitely out of whack here…

I thought I was onto something when I accidentally missed a window on the 1st activation and did 3/sk1 instead, which gave me a far greater squeeze opportunity, but still left me over 700 points shy of what was supposedly achievable. After about 45 minutes spent trying to bridge that gap with my improvised path, I finally broke down and delved into the DLC path thread itself, searching for any paths submitted around the time the song was released. Mind you, the thread is now 96 pages long, so this was no easy feat…especially since the search function on the SH forums blows rabid monkey chunks when looking for this kind of info. Finally, buried on page 47, I found what I was looking for: wesker-kun’s recommended path! Hallelujah! With the correct path in hand, it only took me another 20 minutes to surpass the top score entered for 360 on ScoreHero, phew! Oh, and for all you vocalists out there, I updated the Wiki entry with wesker-kun’s path when I was finished, so, you’re welcome!
