If someone you know can't go more than a few minutes without diving back into their MP3 player, has a constant soundtrack playing in their heads, or is as obsessed with music news as you are with gadgets, then check out a few ways I'd wire the geeky music lover this year.
Now that you've cast your vote in some of my other Best of 2009 polls, we can focus on the games we played this year. There were a ton of shooters and multiplayer titles that hit the shelves in 2009, but that doesn't mean there was a shortage of brain busters and fun musical games for you to rock out with. It was a tough job to narrow down the field down to 10, so check them out and tell me — which is your favorite new video game of 2009?
And don't stop voting there — check the rest of my Best of 2009 polls, too!
I hope you're ready to get your groove on because the next few months are bringing with it the promise of brand spankin' new music-based video games. And there's going to be something for everybody, whether you're into rapping, rocking, or scratching. Everybody who can feel the music, that is.
Ever since Rock Band and Guitar Hero hit the scene, music games have increased in popularity with hard-core gamers and casual gamers alike. And not surprisingly, DJ Hero ($120) was one of the most popular demos at E3, especially after its star-studded preview party in LA. But as you know, there will always be more than one game competing for your buck.Enter Scratch The Ultimate DJ and DJ Star. All virtual DJ video games, and all three being released sometime this year. Although DJ Star is taking a different direction by being released for your Nintendo DS, so it may have a shot at setting itself apart from the other two DJ games.
Are you saving up to buy a DJ game, and if so, which one?
With DJ Hero now available for pre-order on Amazon (coming bundled with the game and the deck on October 27 for $120), I can't help but get a little excited. Sure, I didn't get my hands on the game at E3, but there were demos every 30 minutes for us to see. Judging by the size of the crowd that formed at every demo (and by the amount of celebri-gamers at the release party), I'm pretty sure it's going to be a hit.So check out the trailer (which features some sweet mixes) and tell me: are you excited for DJ Hero?
