Hello fellow ScoreHeros and Heroines. My name is Adam and I've been around here for longer than most of
you youngsters. I was one of the first 10,000 members to the site and although my posting activity has
slumped in recent months, my gaming activity has not. I do not play Guitar Hero much these days and have found a much more healthy obsession (literally) in Rock Band drums.
You may be wondering what you might find on this pretty little page. Don't expect much. Just some scores
and stories from my years as a Guitar Hero enthusiast.
Born in Melbourne in 1991 and have been living here all my life. I have a younger brother who is 2 years younger than me. I was introduced to computers and gaming at a very young age and still remember sitting on my father's lap when I was 5 watching him play a Windows 95 game Descent II∞
. Since and prior to then, I've been introduced to all sorts of video games and consoles. Our first console was a Nintendo Entertainment System∞
more commonly known as a NES console. I used to play the NES all the time and played everything from Aladdin to Zelda II. In 1997 I was introduced to the Nintendo 64∞
through a friend who shared the same name as me. Adam had gotten a Nintendo 64 for his birthday and I used to go over to his house all the time to play with him. Eventually in early 1997, my parents bought me my own when we could afford it and I was hooked. After 18 months of playing I had managed to collect all 120 stars in Super Mario 64∞
at the young age of 7. This was my first major gaming accomplishment. Much later in 2000 the PlayStation 2∞
was released and I wanted one, but our family could never afford it after a recent residential move. Eventually, I got one for my 10th birthday and fell in love once again. Since then we've collected over 80 PlayStation 1 and 2 games. In 2003 we bought an Xbox∞
to prevent fighting between me and my brother and I got hooked on Halo∞
. I never purchased Halo 2, but that was a conscious decision. After collecting games for several years we decided it was time to upgrade to the next generation. I got an Xbox 360∞
for Christmas in 2006 and have been playing this console almost exclusively since then. For my brother's birthday in 2007, he got given a Nintendo Wii∞
and finally on Christmas of 2007 we received a PlayStation 3∞
to complete the Next-Generation console series.
Outside of gaming, I went to Caulfield Junior College∞
(formerly Caulfield North Primary School) from 1996 to 2002 and have been attending Brighton Secondary College∞
since 2003. I am currently at the end of my second year of VCE at Brighton and am starting my third next year. Normally Australian students get only two years of VCE studies but because of an extended learning program (detailed in the BSC
wiki linked above under 'SEAL Program'), I get an extra year to complete my final studies.
I joined ScoreHero
on the 23th
January 2007 after finding a link to it on a YouTube
video. After looking around the forum briefly I quickly signed up and started to lurk the forums. Immediately I tried catching on to the customs scene and failed because I had a shit computer. Afterward, I started to post my accomplishments on the forum and I started to be somewhat noticed as a player. Then, I just stopped posting for a while. After a return to the forum I built up a small reputation as a player and as a forumite and once again, just stopped posting. One final return led me to joining the community a bit better by making friends with fellow Australian player, joining the IRC channel and even recently, meeting up with fellow SH members to play Rock Band. I don't post much anymore but occasionally you'll see a post from me on the Rock Band side and soon enough, maybe an accomplishments thread.
Guitar Hero Biography
I got Guitar Hero 2 for my birthday in 2006 after seeing it in DickSmith while shopping for birthday gifts with my Grandmother. I started playing on hard and never looked back. I just loved it. After a few weeks I had 5 starred all of Hard and was on my way through Expert. About 4 months later I purchased Guitar Hero 1 and whizzed through that on Expert, 3 and 4 starring everything in my path. I didn't really grasp the all strumming aspect at the time. When Guitar Hero Encore: Rock the 80s was release I played through that, struggling for a while to beat Play With Me. At the release of Guitar Hero 3 I purchased that on the 360 and this is where I seemingly developed a lot of my skill. At the time of getting Guitar Hero 3 I had only 25 Full Combos on Guitar Hero 2 and once I was done with Guitar Hero 3, I had 51 FCs. Recently I re-bought Guitar Hero 2 on the 360 for the extra songs and because all of my PS2 guitars were broken. For my birthday in 2008 I imported a copy of Rock Band from the UK along with the new Rock Band 2 drum kit from the US. It cost a pretty penny but it's all I've been placing since.
Guitar Hero 2
|Guitar Hero II (360)|
| Total Score||20,817,730|
|Guitar Hero II (PS2)|
| Total Score||6,134,449|
| Total Score||6,710,473|
I started playing Guitar Hero 2 as my first Guitar Hero game. Since then I have attained many FCs on Expert while dedicating a little bit of time to Hard and Easy difficulties.
Notable Full Combos
- Freebird Choke
- 30 PPLL -1's in Outro
Guitar Hero 1
|Guitar Hero (PS2)|
| Total Score||10,032,838|
I started playing Guitar Hero 1, but I didn't play it for too long. After my new found skill by playing Guitar Hero 3 I returned and really started to grind out FCs. I never finished playing through all the songs for score though and until I get a new PS2 guitar my scores will stay like this for a while.
Notable Full Combos
- All of Tier 1
- Higher Ground
- The Breaking Wheel -1
- Ziggy Stardust 100% No FC
Guitar Hero 80s
|Guitar Hero: 80s (PS2)|
| Total Score||931,799|
| Total Score||4,315,072|
Very little scores inputted for 80s. I got a few decent FCs but I never got around to finishing the game off and like GH1, it will remain like this until I get another guitar. I got a few decent Hard scores too.
Notable Full Combos
- Synchronicity II
- Spending an hour on a decent Police Truck score
- Sucking at Mental Health on both H and X
Guitar Hero 3
|Guitar Hero III (360)|
| Total Score||5,634,468|
| Total Score||23,619,551|
Ah, here's where I shined for a few months. At one point I was ranked 30th on 360 but as you can see I've been pushed down due to inactivity.
Notable Full Combos
- Cult Of Personality
- Cliffs of Dover
- 750k on Through the Fire and Flames
- Sucking at I'm in the Band
- -1s on several 7th tier songs
|Rock Band (Drums, 360)|
| Total Score||11,059,383|
|Rock Band (Vocals, 360)|
| Total Score||2,030,449|
I imported this recently and have gotten hooked on playing Drums. I've also imported Rock Band 2 and will be playing through that setlist. I've developed a LOT as a drummer and have gone from 10m being an achievement to 11m being my ultimate achievement in a month!
My Vocal career is small but it's there. I have the virtuoso achievement but I try to play on Hard for score as I can get higher scores on Hard than I can on Expert. Eventually I'll finish singing my way through Hard and be able to collect a score for my one man band.
- Flawless Singing achieved on Blitzkrieg Bop
- 2 FCs and counting on Hard
|Rock Band (Guitar, 360)|
| Total Score||9,350,858|
|Rock Band (Bass, 360)|
| Total Score||1,526,673|
My Guitar and Bass careers have kind of slumped into Rock Band and I'm not very motivated. At the moment I have 44 Full Combos on Guitar and 13 Full Combos on Bass, but that's because I've only tried to FC about 50 songs on Guitar and only played those 13 songs for score on Bass. Hopefully my motivation will grow and I'll be able to finish playing Guitar and Bass.
- I suck at squeezing in Rock Band
- I've FC'd Train Kept a Rollin', Highway Star and Run to the Hills in BQP, but don't have the motivation to re-do in Single Player.

Time We Had∞
Well, on Saturday night at about 4pm, tma came over with intents to complete the Endless Setlist. We got started around 7 because we had to unlock it on a new BWT profile because the leader of the one we already unlocked the ES on had tma's profile as the leader, but activated with his guitarist, so he did a new one and for about two days gave up playing Left 4 Dead just to unlock it for us. <33333333 tma.
Anyway, we finished at 12:30 with a loud cheer from me and a huge sigh from him.
