    Intel Mac Only?

    Will this game actually work on my G5 or is it just another port which only works on Intel Macs as seems to be the pattern recently...

    Im sorry

    I just have to say this - Take the time you spend playing with this nonsense, and actually learn to play the guitar. You may not get the thrill of pretending to be in a big venue impressing virtual chicks - but you will gain a really cool skill. And who knows, maybe you will get to play the big venues for real.

    re: im sorry

    Are you for real, robttwo?

    It's just a game. Why should you learn playing a guitar the hard way? "To play the big venues for real"? Yeah, that'll happen!

    According to your logic, kids shouldn't play "Grand Theft Auto". Nah, just go outside, stop the first car in sight, kick the driver in the head and steal it's wheels. Right?

    he's just suggesting ones time would be better spent playing guitar than playing games. I'd tend to agree, tho both are enjoyable.

    Let's see - if someone learns to play guitar - in 70 years they can still be playing and enjoying it.

    But, you go ahead and play your games.

    And YOUR logic is so messed up, it defies response. Except to say that I suggest you go purchase some sort of virtual s** game - follow the implication.

    And how dare you steal my trademarked use of the word...
