Consumer Disappointment

Sometime last week, Amazon had some kind of Wii blowout where all of the Gold Box deals were Wii-related.  I saw Guitar Hero III discounted to the point where it cost as much as a normal game, so I scooped it up.

It came in yesterday but a friend was having a BBQ so I didn’t get the chance to fool with it until late.  When I did give it a whirl, I was very disappointed to find it has a horrible skipping problem.  It’s impossible to play along when the music doesn’t start until you’ve played for 10 seconds and the lyrics sound like "Slosloslosloslosloslosloslos ririririririririride".  It’s probably a defective disc, but it’s going to be annoying to have to package it all back up and send it to Amazon.
