Guitar Hero: On Tour for DS = Abortion Hero

The next time I see Peter Ha from CrunchGear (and I will soon), I’m punching him in the stomach. You know why? Because this video showcasing the latest Guitar Hero title for the Nintendo DS is just appalling.

Sorry to Disappoint, Fanboys

A lot of you are under the impression that the consoles I selected for my 10 Worst Gaming Consoles of All Time post were chosen for the fact that I simply don’t like them.
