Karaoke Joysound Wii

Japan's famed Karaoke Joysound now out in America

Sing me some Nickelback

If karaoke is your jam, then you probably know about Japan's Karaoke Joysound hit franchise. North America's very first taste of this comes in the newly launched Wii title, which adds new minigames and avatar customization to its singing.

Karaoke Joysound comes with 30 or so songs, but its on-demand subscription service gives players access to over 1,000 more streaming selections, making it work a lot like the machinery in a real karaoke booth. Singers can rent the entire library for as long as they'd like, paying for the time they plan to use it. 

This Wii game adds minigames to keep the spectators busy while you try to belt out a power ballad. In-game points are awarded as currency, letting players customize characters, stages and more.

If you're ready to sing, Karaoke Joysound is in stores now, priced at $29.99 for the software, or $39.99 with a microphone (no, not the sex toy mic). I can't wait to hear your Nickelback rendition.

If someone used the blog reply feature to just divide a somewhat long blog into easier-to-digest chapters that could be consumed at the leisure of readers, would that be kosher?

@Barry Kelly It looks like it will get pretty difficult later on. It even has instafail stealth sections according to @Chris Carter #neededanexcuse to #tryouttheatfeature

I hope MGS V manages to have some sort of challenge to it. I just replayed MGS 4 for the first time since release and wow that game just practically plays itself. And that's outside of the long sections it is playing itself!

MGSV is looking very good so far! Played to 2% completion last night. Pure stealth seems REALLY hard so far. PS3 version runs fine, loading times are OK, no slow downs, draw distance and pop-in are a bit rough. No glitches. Be prepared! Get it on PS4.

Jealous of all my brethren at PAX Prime. Sad I will miss out on the drinking, orgies and catching the PAX flew. This time next year though, I'll be there! I promise!

Forgot to mention that I celebrated completing Persona 4: Golden by binging on a bunch of totally in-canon doujins. Including, but not limited to, Yu on genderswap't Yosuke. [img]http://i.imgur.com/Ex0MgjW.jpg[/img]

Spent most of my day going back and playing Assassin's Creed: Unity. I really quite enjoyed it. It's a good game.

Reserved my copy of The Phantom Pain today and my car died on the way back home. Thanks Konami. On the plus side, I got to ride in a tow truck to the auto shop. Felt like an elementary school field trip or something for a few minutes.

Humble Bundle End of Summer Sale! Get a free Stealth Inc. 2 maybe? I dunno. Just signal boosting for no particular reason. Maybe 'cause I got a free game? Least I could do. https://www.humblebundle.com/store

I gotta to admit: it feels nice to be able to play a Pokemon game without thinking to myself "oh shit, I got to fill up my Pokedex". It's nice. Oh yeah, and for the record, I'm playing through Soul Silver.

I enter the Gamestop. I set a Toad plushie atop a Yoshi plushie. I set Mario to go down on Kirby. I leave the Gamestop.
