Dilemma / Rant

So, most of you are probably familiar with the Wii Guitar Hero 3 fiasco. If you are, skip to the next paragraph. Turns out that the Wii version of GH3 outputs in 80's-tacular mono sound, so Activision is taking returns of the game, and they send you a fixed version.


Turns out that there's another option- a full refund. I'm actually contemplating the refund, primarily because, well, I hate GH3.

Why do I hate GH3, I hear you ask. It's because I can barely play the game any more because it keeps crashing on me, no one's ever on WFC, and there's terrible lag. And I don't mean console-to-TV lag. Have you ever watched a video where the video pauses momentarily and the sound keeps going, then the video jumps to where the sound is? That's what I'm talking about.

I once tried to play Devil Went Down to Georgia (great song, BTW) and it ended up hanging three times in the menu, not to mention another time in the actual song.

So the refund is $132 USD, which isn't bad by any means. I figure if I send this back, I'll sell my second PS2 guitar (anybody interested?) and make some room for other stuff. But I should probably do that before Flash gets the single battle chip section back online-- otherwise, that $132 is going to magically turn into a set of Link Gigas.
