One of my favorite parts about Guitar Hero is when I’m rocking out, then suddenly bringing the neck up to activate star power. When it’s timed right, especially during co-op, it really cranks things up to 11. Unfortunately on some songs (ahem, Jordan) timing must be absolutely precise, and during those most difficult of tracks it becomes even harder to trigger your star power. Thankfully there’s a new pedal out there that can make things go a little more smoothly.
This new pedal actually gives you the opportunity to use for foot for star power and your whammy bar. I’ve actually been waiting for something like this ever since Guitar Hero II came out for the Xbox 360, as there was a port solely dedicated to a pedal. Unfortunately this is the first one to be seen, made by React, not Red Octane.
What’s disheartening is that these pedals only work on PS2 systems. Seriously, I know that there are still plenty of people using their trusty PS2s, but why not make something like this for people with current-gen consoles? It’ll only set you back $25, so it might be worth it to grab one and finally get that log you’ve been working on for so long.
