Bleeding Edge Byte 017: E3 Leftovers: PS3 SingStar: No Way To Look Cool
It takes a unique combination of character traits to get in front of a few people and belt out “It’s Not Unusual” in your best Tom Jones like a moron. It’s even worse when there’s a camera in the room. But hey, why don’t we just publish it on the interwebs and let the whole world see what our shower walls cry about? Singstar, with Jesse Ferguson in black and the wonderfully untalented Chris Cardinal (that is, me) in green, is a fun party game I fear too many people will lack the moxie to throw down with a microphone for. That’s where booze typically comes in, but suffice to say, both Jesse and I were ridiculously sober when we recorded this.
The game monitors your pitch and intonations, and the length of your notes, and did a very good job at filtering out any sort of background noise. More songs will be available for (purchase and) download at a later date, though it will ship with a collection of around 100. It should also be noted that I edged out Jesse, most likely pulling ahead at the end with my creative take on the w-hoo-hoo part of the song.
IMPORTANT: We are surveying the viewers of our show to see what it is that people like, and more importantly, what they don’t like. It is anonymous, and just takes a couple of minutes. If you have the time, we would appreciate it! As always, feel free to let us know what you think in the comments.
