Are any of you out there closet gamers? I’ve spent my whole life sort of mocking gamers, gently mocking because I know and love many of them, but mocking nonetheless. Now I’ve had the Wii for a year and I am totally nerd-a-liciously in love with it.
But it’s an expensive little guy to feed and clothe. That’s why I’m excited to offer you all the chance to win a new Wii game just in time for Christmas. It’s called PopStar Guitar and has a concept similar to Guitar Hero.
I’m a huge Guitar Hero fan so I was excited to try this game out and pass it on to one of you. Here’s the rundown. There are several things I like about it. First, the price is right. It costs about the same as a regular Wii game but comes with two controllers, ready to play right out of the box.
Second, it has TWO controllers. I love the fact that you can play
against with someone else right away, no more gear to buy.
Third, you are much more likely on PopStar Guitar to find female characters who are not dressed like ladies of the night. Seriously I do not want Laylee to even see the screen with what the GH girls are wearing.
Some other notes about the game: The songs are lighter than those on Guitar Hero, making it more appropriate for pop fans or younger audiences but they also have less interesting guitar solos. The controls aren’t exactly like butta. I much prefer the feel of an “actual” guitar in my hand. It helps me rock out more and get my groove on and such because that’s what we thirty-year-olds are wont to do. The little PopStar Guitar controllers aren’t as much fun. But then they’re half the price…
I’m also not a huge fan of the fact that they use some cover versions of songs instead of sticking exclusively to original music but I’d be much more likely to let Laylee play PopStar Guitar than the other similar games out there.
If you’d like a free copy, leave a comment on this post with the name of your favorite Wii game and I’ll draw a winner on Wednesday night.
