You can only complete the drum tutorials with GH drums? You've got to be fucking kidding me...is there a way around this? I'd better not have to get some drums just to get the stupid tutorial achievement

Unfortunately, there's nothing we can do to get around it. Though, I'm borrowing the set from a friend once the game is released here.

I guess you could buy the set, unlock the achievement and then return it as faulty. But, that's a pretty big risk to take.

(Off-topic: You have 1000 on GH:WT, do you have any tips for Bling, Bling? I have a lot of songs I play, but I don't know if there are many more that I can use to get some quick money.)

Can also grind the living hell out of NSTB (Expert Vocals) for $760 per 4:30 run through 100%, more if you're playing band.

For both, don't bother with Star Power. :D

Ahh Demo. Man, I hadn't thought of that one.

The 2 I've been using mainly are What's My Age Again? (DLC) - X Guitar and Up Around The Bend - X Bass.

Both are under 3 minutes, and both give roughly $850 a run, which is you double that, it's about $1,700 and is around the same length as playing Rebel Yell and other songs.

But yeah, Tutorial achievement sucks. -_-

Ah yes, gotta keep on topic ^_^

Yep, tutorial achievements always suck, you don't need an achievement for them, people will play the tutorials because they need to use them. There's no need in making everyone else do so for an achievement.

Unless, it's as fun as the GH2 one, that narrator made me laugh;

"There was a trailer coming up the side of us, and we were like, dude that looks like our traile-- THAT'S OUR TRAILER!!!" (Not word for word, but nearly there) ;)

I'm hoping this is fixed by the time Metallica comes out in the UK, as I really do not want to have to pay for a new set of drums simply for one achievement.

I second that! I've ordered my region free copy so I doubt it will be fixed by the time I get it. I would be well hacked off to have 990G on it and the only achievement missing is the tutorial.

I got a million on World Tour by grinding the hell out of No Sleep Til Brooklyn :P

I set up a 2-player band quickplay, put vocals to expert difficulty up to a fan and let that do its thing while I laid my guitar (beginner difficulty) next to my laptop and strummed a 4x combo every so often to keep from failing. I got between 1300-1500 each run, and I did it for weeks. Very very annoying, haha

Oh yeah, I'll probably end up buying a drumkit at Wal-Mart and returning it when I'm done...I'm hoping I can 1000 this game, but holy god the 330,000 on Fight Fire with Fire is proving very very nasty. Haven't tried Creeping Death yet but I saw someone FC it on youtube and he got 602k...gonna be hella close.

It is not really worth getting a drum kit for one little achievement. What if you can get your money back...

Crimson Ridley

But I think he's a lot like me, he has to get 1000 on every Guitar Hero...

Yes Bruk, I stalked your profile and saw the 1000 on every one up until now. ;)

Having the 1k on the GH series isn't hard though to be honest. The only achievement I can't get is the Assassin drums achievement on WT, sure with a bit of practise I could. The only reason I can't get 1k on GH3 is due to not having anyone decent even remotely near me to help me get through expert career. Had the single player achievements all done about 8 months ago ;) had 5* expert career on GH3 15 months ago ;). Back on topic, urm yeah I already posted my thoughts. Won't buy a drum kit for 10G but I suppose I bought the camera for R6V2 to get the 1k sooo...

Crimson Ridley
03-29-2009, 01:16 PM
Having the 1000 isn't hard on any game if you are good at it. But most people would never dream of being able to 1k the likes of GH3 and GH2.

Which is what makes getting the 1000 all the more satisfying. Pure skill is involved, there really is no luck. :p

Unless you get lucky living near someone who is decent at expert hehe. Which unfortunately I don't. I'm happy with 925 though happy that 75G - Guitar Hero, is near the bottom of my list due to having got it so early ;)

EDIT - Just to let you know Callum(if I may have the privilege of calling you by your name) I love you :D hehehehe

Haha Guitar Hero is my last achievement, I'm still but a simple noob at Guitar Hero 3 who has only recently 5 starred RaBl (Who also can't do it again!).

Also, I love you too. ;)

It took me a while man, now I average 290k on it. Haven't played GH3 in ages though. Waiting for GH:M soooo bad. Can't wait to try tap FSA properly as it doesn't require strumming :D thanks for posting them links to the new charts btw Jimmy.

It seems to be that Creeping Death and Fight Fire with Fire achievements require practically at least 97% with an really really good SP. -_-

I bet Activision wanted to make the tutorial compatible with the Rock Band drums, but Lars threatened to sue.

If it makes you feel any better, Rock Band 2 had a similar achievement, but for guitar. You basically had to 100% a solo using the "solo buttons" (the smaller ones further down the neck), so you had to use the RB1/RB2 guitar to get the achievement. Thankfully a friend of mine owned that horrible guitar controller, so I just borrowed it from him.

Maybe you can rent the GHWT drums from a game store or video rental store? I know Blockbuster used to rent consoles & controllers (back when I had a membership).

If you bought a drum set just to get an achievement, an achievement that's only worth like 10 GS, then you are truly an achievement whore. :p

Both are under 3 minutes, and both give roughly $850 a run, which is you double that, it's about $1,700 and is around the same length as playing Rebel Yell and other songs.

Easiest way (as you know) is no sleep till... because you dont need to be actively playing.

I messaged you a while ago asking what you were using to give enough noise to the mic - as I don't have a deskfan.

Yesterday however I found some old 120mm pc fans which push ALOT of air so I screwed one into the back of a spare PC case - modded the power supply so its only got the fan plugged into it and taped the world tour microphone to the back of the fan.

Needless to say, the mic picks up the fan noise and when Im not on the 360 playing games (which is a fair amount of time) - I have it switched on boosting bling bling. I only have to hit A 3 times every 5 minutes, and I just put an extra monitor just out of my viewing angle for my pc so it doesnt annoy me or waste loads of power leaving the tv on either :p

Best part though is that its totally bloody silent apart from the fan noise which is awesome.

Too much info? Sorry!

In other news, I only need to 5 star raining blood and one now - their both 4 starred too.

Jimmy how the hell did you get the achievement for satch boogie but you cant consistenly 5 star raining blood? That achievement is going to ANNOY me when I have bling bling because I WANT 1000 in that game!

Guys - it's "Guitar Hero", not "Rock Band". Of COURSE you're gonna need GH drums. It's silly to assume otherwise (or get angry about it.) Why would you think Harmonics & Red Octane would conspire to have their instruments be compatible, when they can make more money selling branded ones instead. Just borrow a friend's kit if you want the 5 points that much. It's what I'm gonna do - and I own GH:M. My buddy already has the kit, when he got WT. Why waste the money buying another??

Bl°°dwolf
03-31-2009, 09:05 PM
Well not everyone has the money to buy a second drum kit, nor the space to keep a second drum kit laying around. I have the remains of my RB1 drums in a closet, and use my RB2 kit (broke the yellow pad a couple times on the RB1 kit) exclusively. I also have two guitars... a RB1 guitar and an xplorer. I use the xplorer exclusively because it feels better when playing to me, but I digress.

Yeah I'm really pissed about this too considering I just bought the RB 2 band set. I like the drums for RB 2 better but I guess GH isnt gonna reason for other controllers. Even though RB is cool and let's you use any instrument you have. Just goes to show which company values customers more. And they should've known people were gonna expect to be able to play thier RB instruments. No one should say oh it's Guitar Hero of course you have to have thier instruments because Rock Band supports all controllers not just Rock Band ones, so it can be done. Activision is just being the bitch of the industry by being biast depending on what instrument you have. Basically Rock Band is fine cause they realize how people want to play these games, but Guitar Hero is gonna be a sick in the mud and say no...no..you have to have OUR instruments otherwise fuck you....This was a horrible design flaw. The game is excellent but this is bad not being able to get an achievement just becuase you didnt give them more money for thier brand instrument.

i'm sorry, but i just need to point out a couple of things.

you do realize that it was neversoft that first came out saying wt would support rb drums for all platforms first (which was an incredibly nice thing to do) and then shortly thereafter hmx came out and agreed to do the same for the wt drums, right?

you also realize that there was a similar achievement (as mentioned earlier in this thread by dex) on rb2 where you were forced to use the vastly inferior rb guitar's solo buttons for 20gs, right?

so please do not demonize neversoft for it's controller-specific achievement (5gs) and act like it's a crime against humanity, but then totally ignore the fact that hmx did the same thing many months prior...because when you do that you're the only one that comes off as biased.
