We gotta admit. Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock, released last weekend, is pretty good. We love playing songs by bands we hate, like “My Name is Jonas” (Weezer) and “Cherub Rock” (Smashing Pumpkins), and, yes, Metallica’s “One” is kicking our asses on Expert. We’re also into the fact that we can “buy” Tom Morello and Slash on GH III instead of Xavier Stone, the black character, as we had to in previous versions of the game.
And, we finally got what we had wished for all these months we’ve been playing: an Asian Guitar Hero. Her name is Midori and her bio states that she is “both sweet and sour” and a child prodigy classically trained on violin. Grrrrrrrrrrreat! As you all know, we love prodigies. And we are sweet and sour. So we were totally stoked. Until we got a gander at our Japanese guitar heroine.
The best thing Midori, our anime-schoolgirl-hooker-heroine, has going for her is her wardrobe. Here she is in her “Mount Fuji-inspired” outfit:
