Welcome to ManfredvonKarma's Wiki. I'm more or less satisfied with the the way it is currently, and will probably only be making minor changes from here on out. However, I am a perfectionist, so don't be surprised if some sort of massive change takes place between viewings. I'll attempt to keep this page as up-to-date as possible, so you can keep track of all of my mediocre accomplishments, and my laughable goals. Feel free to leave me a comment or send me a PM via ScoreHero. If you need HTML help, please consult my HTML cheat sheet.

Guitar Hero Biography


According to the legends, a wise man appeared in a darkened room. He said, "let there be sound," there was sound. "Let there be light," there was light. "Let there be drums," there was drums. "Let there be Karma," and ManfredvonKarma appeared. With such a dramatic legend surrounding his birth, one would think that ManfredvonKarma would be accomplished in something, but he really isn't.

I picked up Guitar Hero for the first time in 2007. One of my friends had Game_GuitarHeroII Guitar Hero II, and played it all the time, which was very rude because I would go over to his house and have to watch him play. I borrowed the game from him one day and proceeded to suck terribly, failing my way through medium because "no one plays on Easy." I remember playing Song_GH2_PsychobillyFreakout Psychobilly Freakout in front of him, and him saying, "I don't remember sucking that badly when I was on medium." Eventually I moved up to hard, and got absolutely destroyed by Song_GH2_CarryMeHome Carry Me Home. I finally passed it a few weeks before Game_GuitarHeroIIILegendsOfRock Guitar Hero III was released, and pushed through Song_GH2_YYZ YYZ, and all of tier 8 directly afterward with no failures.

I had heard about ScoreHero well before joining, but I never saw the point in joining, as I wasn't very good. I sucked it up, and joined on October 30, 2007 - two days after the release of Game_GuitarHeroIIILegendsOfRock Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock, which I had purchased on release day. My failures on Game_GuitarHeroIIILegendsOfRock Guitar Hero III are somewhere between frequent and ever-lasting. Luigi, my cat, who is likely a better drummer than I.Song_GH3_RainingBlood Raining Blood (Hard) took me around 25 tries, and Lou took at least 50 attempts. Oddly enough I didn't even pass the Lou battle at my house. I was over a friend's house and said, "You have to see this - it's impossible." In possibly the most epic coincidence of my life, I passed it right then and there. I haven't been able to get through all of Game_GuitarHeroIIILegendsOfRock GH3 on expert yet (Song_GH3_RainingBlood Raining Blood), but, then again, I haven't tried in months.

I picked up Game_RockBand Rock Band in July of 2008, when I bought my Xbox 360. My friends and I played often, so it was $50 well spent. Surprisingly (maybe not), I'm much better at guitar and bass on Game_RockBand Rock Band. I'm decent on vocals. I've never really put too much time into them, though. I could probably move up to expert if I practiced. I utterly fail at drumming, though. I'm proud to be part of the extremely small fraction of the ScoreHero Community that cannot FC the best song ever made available for the Rock Band platform, Song_RB_CharleneImRightBehindYou Charlene (I'm Right Behind You), on expert drums; I also have a large collection of -1s on expert guitar.

I picked up Game_RockBand2 Rock Band 2 on release day, and played it for hours that day. Then I went back to college, and suffered from withdrawal. This pattern was repeated for a couple weeks, and then a breakthrough was made: I brought my Xbox 360 up to Seton Hall. Of course, I also brought my drums so I could be reminded of how much I absolutely fail at hitting things with sticks. I haven't been bashful about doing vocals, despite the fact that the walls here are mighty thin. Knowing that people can hear me makes me feel like more of a bad ass when I sing songs like Song_RB2_BadToTheBone Bad to the Bone or Song_RB2_AceOfSpades08 Ace of Spades. Luckily for me, my roommate enjoys playing Guitar Hero and Game_RockBand Rock Band, or there probably would have been some awkward "reeltar" vs. "plastar" debates, as he is a self-taught guitarist.

I also picked up Game_GuitarHeroWorldTour Guitar Hero World Tour the day that it was released. I really tried to like it, but I just didn't. The vocals seem unecessarily difficult, and the drum charts are very difficult to read. The character creator was hard to use, and I couldn't read the text that I was entering, so it took me about fifteen minutes to name my character. The songs are fun (especially Song_GHWT_LaBamba La Bamba and Song_GHWT_BeatIt Beat It), I'm just not a fan of the overall package. Like an overdone cravat, the frills are just too much. When I actually started playing Guitar Hero World Tour (i.e. doing to career), rather than letting it collect dust after my initial impression deemed it as being stupid I started to like it. It's still (in my opinion) not as good as Rock Band 2, but judging it solely on the basis of being a guitar-centric game, it's pretty good. I continue to hate doing drums or vocals on it, though.

Speaking of drums, I finally stopped being absolutely horrible at them. There are still a lot of beats that I can't do well [e.g. any prolonged alternating bass pedal, followed by note(s)], but I'm doing pretty well for myself. I can pass quite a few songs on hard (the highest teired one that I did so far was Song_RB2_Spaceman Spaceman), and most of the lower tier songs on expert (special thanks to Harmonix for putting out two easy drum songs in the same week). My main issue is endurance. I cannot deal with having to repeatedly hit the bass pedal (Psycho Killer is a great example of a song that I am unable to deal with).
