Area Man Finally Nails Dragonforce Solo In Guitar Hero

Area man Gary Antos got a perfect score on Dragonforce’s song “Through the Fire and Flames” in Guitar Hero this Friday, sources say. The 26-year-old gamer had been practicing for years before finally reaching this goal. “It was a lot of hard work that finally paid off,” Antos said. “In my junior year of high school, back in 2008, Matty Williams said he’d give me a hundred bucks if I pulled it off, and now I have the receipts to prove it.”

Antos’ ex-girlfriend, who asked to remain anonymous, says that following his dream had come at a hefty price. Reportedly, Antos frequently neglected his various responsibilities, including family gatherings, a job at a local pizzeria, and his pet cat. “We broke up because of it,” she said. “He would play all the time. He wore headphones, but the clicking kept me awake whenever I stayed over. It gave me nightmares.”

“It got really disturbing,” she continued. “The final straw was when, during what was supposed to be a romantic dinner, he starting shouting the lyrics to the song and pretending my wrist was the neck of the controller. I think he was having a psychotic breakdown.”

“He strummed on my waiter’s belt buckle,” said the owner of the restaurant. “He’s not here, is he? He’s not allowed back here.”

“None of that matters anymore because the bet is finally settled,” said Antos, smiling. “Or it would be if Matty wasn’t still touring the U.S. with our old band.” Matthew Williams, guitarist for the popular ska band Neon Boulevard, could not be reached for comment.

“When he comes around on tour, I’ll get my hundred bucks,” Antos continued. “In the meantime, I’ll be practicing on expert mode just to really show him.” Antos’ perfect score was achieved on the game’s intermediate difficulty setting.
