Hollow Gamerscore Points: Rock Band and the Pixies

My buddy Kris and I have played Rock Band far too much.  Last night, I purchased the Pixies Doolittle album for it (mmm… such good music!).  While joyously reliving my teen years through the album, we were jamming out to one of the tracks, “Silver,” when we decided to try it on expert (we usually play on hard, with the occasional expert setting).

‘Silver,’ on Rock Band, on Expert, on the drums, is quite possibly one of the easiest songs in the game.  And, for my efforts, I got 100% on the song.  And the first 100% you get on expert comes with a little chime:

Oh, the torn emotions!  On one hand I was estatic because it’s an achievement I’ve been working hard for, furthering my drumming skills since we got the game.  But… I feel like it’s a hollow victory.  I didn’t get the achievement from doing the hard work that it suggests!  I will always feel empty with these 10 pts, because it feels like I should have done more to earn them.  Alas, alas.

(But I have to admit… it feels good to have unlocked it, within the confines and rules of acquisition.  So if you’re fed up and need to unlock this achievement… go buy Silver.  You, too, will earn the hollow victory that will now plagues my conscience.)
