Even if you have been living under a rock you have heard of Guitar Hero, so if you are a rock. It is game where you strum a guitar to little colored domes on a conveyor as they cross a colored bar. WorldTour has upped the ante by adding a Mic, Drums and some other cool stuff I don't believe they share with RockBand. Familiar faces like the singer, drummer etc are completely removed, short of the intro which Lou(satan) makes his only apparent return in by brainwashing people with a flute player. Interstingly the events of GH3 seem to have severed his ties to rock and metal, as it saves the people from him. We were told all of the characters from GH3 would return, however there is no Slash, or RobotGuy.

Graphics - 3/10
This is what will make you most go WTCrapin'Carp, apart from a strange glow you occasionally have most of the objects are pretty nice, it seems they would look best on a huge and I mean huge TV. The menus are nice enough, however if you are singing the words are about font 4, the song titles before you start are also close together in a difficult font, and in another difficult font that is almost as tiny and the lyrics are the artists name. This makes me wonder if someone who sells 10 foot TVs paid activision a lot, there is plenty of room even with a full band for the lyrics.

Difficulty - 10/10
There is a new beginner mode that is easier than easy, which is vital for learning the drums, since the first song throws every note color at you. The drums are in no way intuitive without doing a song or two on beginner you will be whacking away with the wrong timing and not hit anything, assuming you actually hit the right drum. It is also usefull for non-singers to learn to sing since as long as you say the words at the right time it will give it to you, you can then learn how to change the pitch of your voice without having to select restart song every 5 seconds. There is still and expert difficulty, so you music hating expertists can rest easy. ;P ...Unless you are the more loserish kind who cannot stand someone playing on anything less than expert even if they just started playing. You, I cannot shoo away, but i'd like too not see you try to ruin GH4 for everyone else. In essence they balanced the difficulty so everyone should be happy. >_>

Gameplay - 8.5/10
The size of the lyrics also docks here, other than that it is pretty good. this time you select a venue which this time there are many more of. You then play the venue's songs one after another. Sometimes you have to actually pay to play somewhere. (no not real money. 0_0' ) I am a little disapointed with the music creator because the samples are pretty bad, maybe i can make something decent.

Story - 8/10
You will play in areas across the globe just rocking with your touring band. You can name it and create an album cover which are all used often in game. You seem to be the only real member unless you are playing with someone. Each song all other members are randomly generated, giving wonder if you just pull random people out of the crowd for each song, occasionally famous people will crash your show and join your band for one song and then vanish forever. (unless you buy them)

Multiplayer - 8.5/10
The single player is solid, and the multiplayer is just as solid, even fixing some problems it faced before. On my tv you can see everything clear enough. (except the lyrics, but i'm not docking anymore) Starpower for bands is much improved as everybody pays into one SP tanks and anyone can use starpower for themselves, this way you don't have to time everything perfectly with everybody. The star power drains one bulb and last about as long as if you just get starpower and immediately use it in a single player game. A vocalist will make it nearly impossible to run out of star power assuming each person who uses it hits their own star power phrases, as long as they sing they keep pulling in star power. I once ran through a whole song with star power active, because I hit mine and my sister kept singing. What took the one point here is you need a controller for every instrument even the mic!

Replayabilty - 10/10
You can freestyle in Mii freestyle, although all I use it for is letting my niece drum, because she would always grab the drum sticks and swing them when I was setting it up, she is to young to play for real. So if you have babies put them in freestyle.
Since you can make your own rocker there is some more replayability, although the chins seem a little large at the smallest size. I managed to make a pretty close doppleganger although I don't think I'm emo.
You can also make your own music and play DLC so there is plenty to do, every song in every mode will also earn you cash.
Plus with nearly 90 songs to start for free you will have a lot to occupy you.

Songs - 8/10
Some of the songs you wonder why after firing the imbecile who suggested them they left them in. La Bamba, and on the road again are prime examples of evil songs. There are a lot of unknown songs but most are nice enough to sing and/or play. They also added some foreign language songs which are hard enough to sing without tiny lyrics.

Final - 8/10
Get it, just be ready to eventually buy those remotes.

Ninja RP
The geysers all freeze
Torren swoops down and snatches Gbpa and then kicks him at one of the geysers turned stalagtites. As his body crashes into one a splattering of blood flys and gbpa lies groaning while peirced. Torren lands and pulls out a knife.
Torren: This will hurt a little, i'm just going to cut your eyes out and then pull your brain out with your spinalcord connected. Then I will have access to your trait, it isn't the only way I can gain access but it sure is fun! He takes the knife and prepares to cut around the eyes.
L: You bastard, do you have no soul, he is an innocent and...(No I cannot give in to this feeling... That was close.) If he manages to take either of our genetic traits he will be too powerful.
L summons his sword and begins running in kind of the direction of Torren.

Ooc: Sorry about being gone I was playing GH4.

It's over 9000!
Ho, Yeah! Fo pittle its over the 9 thou-sittle

Ninja RP
Torren cannot dodge it fast enough, but being skilled in water he is adept at defending from it.
The ground begins to break where it rumbled and geysers gush out.
L backflips away at the last moment, while GBPA pratfalls away.

Ninja RP
Torren flicks his wrist and beneath everybody the ground rumbles.

We only have that long before we can get GHWT! I'll make the most epic song ever!

National Day Of Prayer Thread (USA)
It turns out the guy I was talking about has been in the hospital all week, because he got pneumonia.

National Day Of Prayer Thread (USA)
Ok, I will, I also have a prayer request, my family hired a guy to fix our plumbing, anyway his wife left him at about the time we hired him in September (around my birthday), she left the guy with all of their kids and before she left she neglected to pay any bills and then she took all of the money in his bank and then all of the money in his house. He moped for several weeks and then found out his bills were outstanding and everything was getting repossessed; then he and his kids got sick. So now he is scrambling(and moping) around trying to get everything in order while sick.
It affects us because he is putting off doing the work and my dad is getting irrational.
So pray for that poor guy and his kids, more importantly

Ninja RP
Gbpa: Be careful this mist can try to open your eyes, I wouldn't be surprised if it could push open your blindfold.
L: Just outlast it! It isn't worth the ninergy it takes to fight it!
Torren: This will be so easy!
L warps over to him and kicks him.
Torren: You little bastard! How did you get me this time?
L: There is more to the Oroculi Hadronokun than just vision, It affects all of my senses, I can listen to you and make out your location blind. It is called the Oroculi Hadronokun Soniko. You don't have 5 sense stoppers do you? The Oroculi Hadronokun is too powerful for you to fight!

Ninja RP
Torren: Not quite, you see L revealed enough info I can begin to spot the weaknesses of the Oroculi Hadronokun, further when I tear it from L, I will know far more about how to use it than will be required to destroy Felom. L also revealed his additional personal weakness with it. I can... I won't go into it, or my hand will be shown before the chips are even on the table, I'd hate to do a 'L'... Don't you worry, i'll test it on you before anyone.
He opens his mouth and breathes deeply. A cloud comes out that homes into the eyes of his 3 enemies.
L: What the... Guhg! *Hack, Cough* I can't see a thing! Everybody close your eyes now! Hold your lids with your fingers! Just DO IT!
Gbpa: Ugh!
His left hand slips and the cloud forces his eye open, depositing the whole cloud for him in one eye.
Gbpa: I kinda succeeded and failed at the same time, I'm not fully blind.
L: You will be eventually, Just try to work with half of your vision.
Gbpa's left eye is fully a cloudy gray as are both of L's.

OOC: I may be less active for a while soon.

Ninja RP
Torren contorts his body and darts out, and then zoom about wildly occasionally firing large aqua hadokens.
L looks calmly and then in a flash seems to warp up to Torren and hits him with a Miasma Punch.
Torren drops, his lip bleeding, but rises to just hover.
Torren: How did you hit me?
L: Oroculi (Or-ock-you-lie) Hadronokun (hey-dr-on-oh-kun) Opptiku (Op-te-ku) Blood technique inherited by this kid over here. This ability is extremely powerful, it grants the ability to learn and copy techniques to some bearers, it also can be trained to spot what would be unnoticeable changes to surroundings of others, minimal changes or paterns, I spot the pattern your subconcious used to move and took advantage of it, But I figure even a fool like Gbpa down there could spot your pattern without the technique. I was born with only a partial set and when I was young could copy very simple techniques, but that power vanished as I grew older, I don't know what the key is. By taking a true one from Gbpa, it is enhanced over just a plain true one, but the copy aspect continues to elude me.

Ninja RP
Torren: Seems to even faster slip behind as if he was swimming through the air. He flicks his fingers across Dashi's back to push him away at a high speed.

Ninja RP
Torren: Eh, but how is your technique?
He tenses his muscles ready for something when Dashi gets close.
L: Don't be foolish! We don't know what kind of tricks he can pull!

Ninja RP
Torren: I do not wish to fight, just to sacrifice those two. If you will do that, I will be happy to leave without 'conflict'.

Ninja RP
Out of the pool rises a pillar of water, sitting on it as it rises is Torren.
Torren: So you came? Now I will mop the floor and then I will have everything I need to kill Orochimaru and become a god.

Ninja RP
L: As far as I've seen he doesn't have any elemental forms, if he did I would suspect electricity. He is well trained in water, so he is likely resistant to water techniques.
