I have no musical talent whatsoever. I’m tone deaf. Even my heartbeat has no rhythm (I should probably have that checked out). But I'm a gamer and can still fullfill my pop star dreams with all the music games coming out lately. It seems like since the insane popularity of Guitar Hero, a dozen different publishers have jumped on the music game bandwagon. That's just fine with me. I'm looking forward to Jam Sessions (DS, Ubisoft) an acoustic guitar sim that lets you create music instead of just following the rhythm. There’s also two new beat-making games, Traxxpad (PSP, Eidos), which lets you record your own voice to add to the mix and Beatarator (PSP, Rockstar) that'll include samples by hotshot hip-hop producer Timbaland. Plus, I can continue pretending I know how to play a guitar when Guitar Hero 80's Edition (PS2, Activision) drops in June. And SingStar Pop (PS2, Sony) will feed my karaoke addiction when it comes out in the late spring. Not to mention the mystery project in the works between EA and Harmonix/MTV Games (developers of Guitar Hero and Karaoke Revolution). There’s widespread speculation about this game: Will it be Drummer Hero? Band Hero? Keyboard Hero? Well, I'm an MTV intern, and I’ve seen and tried out an early build of this mystery game (heh, gotta love the perks!). Obvious conflict of interest here, but I can only say that it’s really, really, really cool and my rock star aspirations will be virtually satisfied well into next year.
