Guitar Hero Aerosmith MFCs:
Cat Scratch Fever (1/41)

I almost confused myself because my previous update to Aerosmith sid I went to 2046th, but this update on the wiki only had me at 2889th (2090th, really, but if you aren't within the set amount of listed rankings, excluding the highest number, it drops you one rank for some reason; if you want to be properly listed in, say, the top 10, you have to be 1st-9th at the very least, though I think being 10th might be fine. 11th just puts you down to 10th if you aren't tied in points). I realized I typo'd and that the previous update took me to 3046th, not 2046th, so crisis averted.

Speaking of rankings, RB3 is my 11th rank in the top 1000! Thankfully my hope that the last 66 ranks needed less than 500K was a good one, though it's going to be considerably harder to get to the top 500, I think. It's only about...11mil or so, but with RB points that's a long way away.

Both Bass and Medium are going to fall this update. Actually, I'm probably gonna have to step it up for a couple of other ones because I do want to get to top 15 by March like I originally thought I would. Granted, it's not a really big deal if I don't, but I'm just persnickety like that. GH5 and SH are the prime targets for this.

So, the gameplan for the week should be to get Medium done via GH3 and GHA, HBass with Metallica and SH (and probably with some HGuitar thrown in for SH itself), and then Drums for WT and 5. I probably won't get SH and 5 by the end of this week since SH needs about 6mil and 5 needs 5mil, but I will try to invest more into these two games than the others.

On a slight tangent, I wonder if something's up with the way I hold the guitar because my thumb feels like it hurts to bend it certain ways now. It's just in the thumb and nowhere else so I'm fairly sure it's not carpal tunnel or anything, but it's annoying that I can't bend it every way I usually can without it hurting.

Guitar Hero Aerosmith MFCs:
#2 - All Day and All of the Night

Completed difficulties:
Guitar Hero Smash Hits HBass
Guitar Hero Aerosmith Medium

Okay, yes, it's not technically completely, but I'm 2 fucking ranks from 1000 on Smash Hits. I'm not going to be so pedantic about it that I'll waste this upcoming week on that. I will at least drop it down to under 1000 today (and likely do the same for GH5), but as of today the goal is complete, and it's time to switch over to 2x for awhile.

One thing I've noticed is that I feel an...I guess an oscilliating sense of desire for either side. Leading up to 2018 I was feeling kinda eager to jump into lefty because I was getting a little worn out from pushing so hard for the top 10 rankings. Recently, though, I noticed I was gaining a growing desire to come back to 2x instead, though not because I was worn out. I guess I was feeling a desire just to come back, or something. It's not a bad thing until I start feeling extreme weariness pulling me to one account or the other, but I thought it something to point out.

I finished inputting scores for two different games this week, too. I could have stopped with SH since I was only halfway there at the start of the week, but I was also looking for points and though I could get most of the way there. I very nearly did get it with just the rest of HBass, but not all the way. As for GHAM, I pretty much only had the Vault plus the two songs I couldn't get scores inputted for, so it really wasn't too much hassle to go through, like, 7 songs.

So yeah. I'll play a little bit longer on SH and 5, and then I'm back to righty mode again. Don't expect a reply today unless you get one in fast enough.

Here I am, back on the flipside. Here's to hoping I haven't completely atrophied in playing this way over the next couple of months.

The goal this time around is simply the continuation of my goal earlier this year. I got 15 out of 22 so far (excluding 1, 80s, Live and RB4/PS4), and in the upcoming days I'll be ranking all but 2, and maybe 3: All, Guitar and Guitar Hero 3. All will go down quite rapidly as more scores are input, and of the big 3 it's already the lowest, so that will likely be the 20th one that I knock down. Due to both GH3's prolificness and how much Guitar is played compared to everything else, those two I'm probably only going to shoot for getting down to the top 10K, maybe more if I'm lucky. The end goal will thus be to get the other 3 games down (WT, GHA and GHM) alongside Hard, and hopefully All will get to the top 1000 in the meantime to make 20 in the top 1K. Probably not, considering that I need ~140mil just to break that milestone, but...who knows?

I think, in the end, I will push myself to do at least 20 by the time I'm done. It's nice and even, and given what else is there I only need to push one; and technically I'll be pushing two since the one game that's the highest also only has one instrument! Well, hopefully, anyways.

Here's to more improvement and good scores.

All: Now 4443rd
Hard: Now at 974th (Top 1000!)
PS3: Now at 407th
Guitar: Now at 12909th
Drums: Now a 1237th
Guitar Hero 3: Now at 15974th
Aerosmith: Now at 1809th
World Tour: Now at 2928th
Metallica: Now at 1738th

14m in basically 3 days? That's pretty good. Well, the bulk of it was Wednesday and Thursday, though I did get some GHA and GH3 done earlier on.

I...probably should've marked what each rank was at when I started, as now I don't know how much I've actually gone up compared to before. Guess I'll just start that now. Hard actually passed under the top 1000 as well, though I'm admittedly kinda hesitant to stop playing just Hard right now. Both because I'm feeling stubborn and because I am kinda getting into a groove now. I mean, I'm not good, by any means, but I'm getting better. Besides, I'm pretty sure that GHA, GHM, and WT can all be placed in the top 1000 just on Hard alone now.

I think my previously-stated goal for GH3 was just top 10K, so that's what I'm gonna lower it to. Same with All, down to probably 2.5K or so? The main games are definitely gonna fall for 20/23, which is probably where I'll have to stop for now. The next time around, I will definitely re-open everything to shoot for the top 500.

All: +1695 to 2749th
PS3: +134 to 274th
Hard: +494 to 381st (Top 500!)
Guitar: +4720 to 8190th (Top 10K!)

Holy shit. 30 million in one week. On Lefty. I'm telling you, GH drums has so many fucking points it's ridiculous. Thanks to this one single week, I've met practically every single goal I wanted to do, and in less than a month since I restarted--less than half a month, actually!

The only real odd one out is World Tour, but that's to be expected since that one had the biggest differential outside of Guitar and GH3. I will likely at least take the rest of July (less, if that's the way it goes) to get WT over the top 1000, and then I'll be done for this go-around.

It's not so much that I had a lot of time on my hands--relatively speaking, I think I'll have more next week than I did this week because I don't close at all until next Sunday--but that as far as point generation goes, GH Drums is so OP with kicks being 75 points and normal ones being 50 (and if you find accents, which granted only appear on Hard and Expert and maybe rarely Medium, the normal ones are 75 points as well!). GHM in particular this time around had a lot of points just because of the genre that Metallica plays; metal thrash beats may be dificult to combo but they have so many notes (and therefore points) packed into each measure if you can combo them.

Let's see, what else...GHA Hard and GH3 HDLC are both complete fully. yes, I don't have a score for Georgia, but that song is so hard even on Hard that even as a Righty I still have trouble keeping up with it. I knew full well I wasn't going to pass it, and since I have scores for everything except the deleted DLC I consider it finished. My best guess for where I'll end up on GH3 in general still points toward a possible narrow top 500 finish, but without reaching into my PS2 copy or getting good enough for Expert I'm not going to get much farther than that, if I reach top 500 at all. GHA has a better ticket to top 500 as it shouldn't be that big a leap upon finishing Easy, but then I'm also going to stop there unless I want to replay it all on my PS2 copy or get good enough to play Expert.

GHM HDrums is halfway done, and I think I will be able to do it except for War Ensemble. I might be able to if I think I can get away with every other kick. I did try it on Righty once just to see what I could do, and I was very pleased that I could keep up with the speed of the kicks as I wasn't able to before. The rolls are something else entirely, but if I can keep up with the main beat of the song I can just practice the rolls. Also got my first Hard FC and HDrums FC on Demon Cleaner, so that's cool! That makes 3 FCs not on Easy (two on Medium on GHA, and this one).

Anyways, with Drums done I'm just gonna do the rest on Guitar. With only about 13m to go I probably should be able to do it if I can get 2-3m per session with 12 songs per. After that it's back to righty, and while I do have a longer-term goal in mind over there, there is one thing I want to try and do really fast before it's potentially too late.

Also, sjay, why aren't you over 2.8B yet? You slippin'?

I usually don't do mid-week updates, but I got done with WT pretty quickly so there's not really much reason to wait until Saturday. I just have one more set of 6 that I did real fast today (Thursday) and I'll be switching over. I won't come back to make the official rank-up, though.

As for my next Lefty goal, I see two choices: Either I go forward toward top 500 on all of these (and possibly top 1000/500 on All/GH3/Guitar), or work toward being on each of Bushi's E-H G/B boards (sans O211). I kinda want to get to the top 500 so I'm not worrying so much about that, so that'll likely be my choice.

This was a really quick run, but it was really productive, far more than I imagined. I wouldn't expect something like this to happen often. See you all next time!

Okay, I DID say I was going to wait until 2019, but I guess I couldn't wait that long.

The goal this time around is to unlock all the songs I haven't gotten to yet on the games I can play right now (aka not GH1-80s/Live/RB4). The intent is NOT to have scores inputted for every song, just to make sure I have them all available.

Aerosmith (MGuitar)
Metallica (HDrums)
Smash Hits (HBass)
GH5 (already unlocked)
Van Halen (EBass)
BH (Already unlocked)
"The Beatles" (all but The End)
Green Day (already unlocked)
Rock band 1/2/3 (using exports for 1/2, already unlocked for 3)
AC/DC (I think it's already unlocked...??)

Need to unlock still:
GH3 (Medium) - I just have the last two venues to play plus TTFAF, so I'm not too far off. I think I've already bought all the bonus songs, and I'll just use the "unlock all songs" cheat for the quickplay ones.
World Tour (MDrums) - Just need Tesla's Coil (since those specific venues don't unlock until you buy it), Ozzfest to get TImes Square, Times Square itself, and possibly Sunna's Chariot.
Warriors of Rock (HGuitar) - While most of the songs are already unlocked, you have to beat story mode for those final hardest songs (when you get All-Powerful). I kinda want to, anyways, but I kinda want to wait until I can get all-40 on HGuitar first. Maybe.
Lego Rock Band (EGuitar, I believe) - Follows the same trend as RB1/2 where songs are unlocked by venue. If I need to I'll just spam A Day Like This and Ain't No Telling alongside one song I haven't played On-disc to finish any non-pre-made setlists I have to do. Not the biggest hurdle in the world.
"The Beatles" - I admit I'm not all that thrilled to play through TBRB's career just to unlock The End, so that may be a case where I'll use my righty profile but play on lefty.
AC/DC (If they aren't all unlocked already) - AC/DC I haven't actually played on PS3, so I'll have to play through career ANYWAYS if that's required so I'm not too bummed there.

I'm currently working through WT MDrums. It won't take me much time for GH3, so the two biggest ones are LRB and WoR. Then it'll be done.

I will be highly amused if I get this done by New Year's.

I finished up GH3 the same night I posted that. It was just the two setlists, so it was easy enough. I didn't play TTFAF for the credits, but it should still be unlocked. I'll be pissed if it isn't.

What DID piss me off today is that I apparentely need to play every other (non-bonus) setlist in order to unlock Times Square on WT. I never noticed before because the last three times I played (WT on Wii, WT on PS2, and WT on PS3 as Righty) I was going through each setlist as they came instead of here where I was just looking to get through it as fast as possible. I only have three setlists left to play, so it's possible I may just have to play one more instead of all three, but the fact that getting to the last setlist before Times Square doesn't unlock it makes me really mad.

So...I'll try to finish that tomorow. LRB and then AC/DC are next, and I'll finish with WoR.

EDIT: Welp, AC/DC and Lego are actually both all unlocked. So unless I want to play on RB1 and RB2 originally I don't have to unlock a damn thing (Except The End, but again I'm not playing all of TBRB for just one song). WT will be done tomorrow, and WoR over the weekend, most likely.

Alright, back here again! I decided to forego Vocals (Dear god, it feels worse than I remember; I even think there's lag I can't compensate for, too...) and I finished WT H/XDrums, so now I'm going to just go back and forth between both of these for now since both sides will have an overarcing goal but need to go from one game to the next.

I still also haven't gone through the goal list for Lefty like I did for Righty, so let's do that here.

Goal #1: Get scores inputted at least on Guitar/Bass on each game (and probly drums, too, once Righty's done with them).

This is fairly straightforward. The small twist in this goal is that I'm going to take the top differential from my user score sheets (the spread to top 1k/500) and go from the bottom up; in other words, the game/difficulty/instrument that are the furthest from those ranks will go first (with drums currently unavailable due to lack of batteries), and I'll go up the list (even if it does get to the top 1k/500 because that's where it's going but not the end goal here). Once all the on-disc songs are done I'll move on to the next game, and so on, until I get through each game.

I think that I'll move on after the game is finished. Perhaps only by difficulty? (aka if the difficulty is Medium and I get MGuitar and MBass done, I'm good there). I'm not entirely sure but I'll figure it out as I go.

Goal #2: Get on BUshi's boards (G/B, E-H)

Self-explanatory. Should happen with goal 1, but this is just to get the last bits (most likely on Hard). Expert is still off the table since that's never going to happen. Hopefully Bushi will note when I break onto any board, too!

Goal #3: All User scores top 500/250

OR My first FGFC.

I don't know which one I want more, to be honest. I feel confident enough I could get an E or MFGFC on any usable instrument, but at the same time I do need to get into the 500s. I don't think I'll get to this point by the end of 2019, depending on how things on Righty go, but I feel pretty sure my first FGFC is going to be Medium. I think RB3 or, like, SH. Dunno which instrument, tho.

#4: Whichever of #3 I didn't do

Also self-explanatory.


So, those're the main goals for Lefty 2019. In accordance with Goal #1, my first game to tackle is RB3 MGuitar, followed by MBass. After that, I believe it'll be The Beatles. So let's get going.

Didn't mean to take this long to post. I got disheartened last time because the wiki still won't let me log out of 2x so I can check Lefty's user stats, and then this week was crazy at work.

I've been going through RB3 MGuitar via Party Shuffle, though I wish I could somehow exclude songs that haven't been played yet just so that I'm not always skipping some. If I do FC one, I'll just skip it, but if I come upon it again I may try to re-FC it. For songs like Free Bird I am going to try to FC that just because I don't want to go through it more than once if I can help it.

Still, hopefully I'll be done with MGuitar by the end of April. I could conceivably change to MBass for the songs I've already FC'd so I can do both (and the MKeys as well). Since MDrums is off the table for the time being, I will be done when I finish Guitar/Bass/Keys.

Hopefully the logout problem will be fixed, but until then, see you next week!

RB3 MGuitar FCs (45/82):
I Love Rock 'N Roll
Combat Baby
In the Meantime
Crazy Train
Get up, Stand Up
Whip It
Walking on the Sun
Caught in a Mosh
King George
The Killing Moon
Low Rider

MGuitar Half-Game FC! Still don't really know how to alt-strum or fret that well yet, but to be fair RB3 MGuitar doesn't need too much of that. MGuitar on the RB side generally hasn't been that hard, from what I remember.

Only have about 20 songs to go for MGuitar. Also figured out I can just label all the songs I've played with 1-flames and then hide those, which effectively gives me a list of songs I haven't played yet. Concievably, when I can play all four instruments, I could just do this for every song with all scores input for that instument, and then show them when I jump to a new difficulty. When all diffs. and instruments are done, then they'd be hidden for good. Shame WoR doesn't have this kinda thing.

I might just make RB3 MGuitar my first Lefty FGFC. Both because of how close I am already and because I already wanted my first to be MGuitar.

RB3 MGuitar FCs (51/82):
Everybody Wants to Rule the World
Werewolves of London
I Wanna be Sedated
Portions for Foxes
Something Bigger, Something Brighter
Free Bird

Alright, that's MGuitar done. SBSB is FC'd, but after I got it I realized I didn't have my camera with me and in fact forgot it in my parents car when they drove me back from my graduation (more on that in a bit). I didn't input the score at the time, but I probably will re-FC for pic proof later. Free Bird I just wanted to FC now and not have to worry about it later, especially since I won't be coming back to do reduxes on Lefty.

The Wiki STILL won't let me log out of 2x, so that still needs to be looked at. It's also kinda pushing me away from playing Lefty because I can't update those totals anymore and then there's no point in basing anything off them (when they're one of the best I can use) when they're going to be wildly out of whack. Unless there was a post in the thread I made about it. I'll need to check.

Also, I've both finally graduated from college (BA of Arts: English - Creative Writing) with magna cum laude, and I turned 26 yesterday. whoo...

Anyways, my stop on 2x coincided very well with running out of AAs for my drumkit, but now that I have some spare cash I'm gonna go buy some more. So next up on the docket might be either GHM Drums or RB Drums. I'll decide on Saturday. Maybe RB Drums so I can do a whole round-table in RB3 next time.

So, after taking about 3 months too long to do 162 measly-ass songs, I'm back on track, relatively speaking. Now that I can actually access the wiki on this account, I've updated my totals for Lefty and can change how I do this. The main plan is still to work by the top 500/1K, but the start is with WoR, not RB3. It'll also be on Easy

WoR (or 5 or WT, for that matter) doesn't have the same level of filtration that RB3 does, sadly, so I can't exactly hide the songs that I've already played (if anyone knows how I can do so, please tell me). So I'll just have to pick a means of sorting and just go from there. In this case, I'll pick the duration from shortest to longest. With any luck I can get through each timeframe the game has in the system each day, and then move on to the next instrument; I'll start with Drums, since that's the loudest usually, and then go to Guitar, then Bass. Once I've got scores input for all of these, I'll move to the next game. Normally I'd be concerned about SRs, but to be honest I care a lot less about the Easy charts compared to Medium-Expert. And WoR EDrums are the only ones I haven't seen, anyways. If I could filter out to just WoR, I'd do the same as RB3, but that's unfortunately not an option.

The idea for RB3, in case I didn't explain it already, is that I'm going to do a party shuffle every time I boot up. Like with WoR/GH, I'm going to start on Drums since that's the one that's the loudest, and do what I can; no FC attempts, no real attempts at high-scores, just inputting scores. Next bootup, I will still be on Drums, but if I see a song I've already played, I'll switch out from drums--first to Keys and then to Bass. If I see that I've played the song already on all three instruments (or 4, when Guitar is in play), I'll rate it as 1 and use the "hide 1-Flame review" filter to remove it from the shuffle list. This will continue until I'm done with that difficulty (in this case, RB3 Medium).

On the next go-round, I'll be using my top 500/1k ranking on my spreadsheet to pick the next game; aka, based on how close the game is to the next milestone.
