This SingStar PS4 trailer is awful, but I still want to play it


3:00 PM on 06.04.2014



I'm not ashamed that I want to play the new SingStar. I am ashamed that this trailer is so awful. First of all, I just don't care about Carly Rae Jepsen anymore, and I'm going to need to see some more updated songs. I do, however, love the fact that you can use your own smartphone as a mic or the existing SingStar microphones, of which I have at least eight from the various PS2 and PS3 iterations.

It's just that this trailer highlights everything I hate about marketing. Look at those teenagers. I've never seen one in my life enjoying themselves that thoroughly as though they're having some "good clean fun" with a game before, let alone karaoke. It's so fake. So polished. So stupid. I would have bought into it without the trailer, but that's just me -- I know there's an audience out there who will go bonkers for the game after seeing ol' Carly Rae involved.

Oh well. At least there are still a couple of Queens songs I can fall back on when I inevitably join the upcoming SingStar party. And I'll be out for blood if you guys want to challenge me.

There isn't any decent karaoke where I live and I'm not in San Francisco or New York, so I turn to games like SingStar for my singing fix. SingStar is coming to PS4 in a big way later this year, and I couldn't be more ex...more

The Voice still looks like garbage, but I want to play it

Let it be known that I play any and all karaoke games, no matter how bad they are. Hell, I even bought Disney's Sing It because I thought there might be a couple Hannah Montana songs I could rock out to. But I think Activisio...more

I'm so glad I never sold my copy of Mario Paint

I may not replay videogames very often, but when I do get the urge, it feels impossible to ignore. If it's an Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, or Wii game I feel compelled to revisit, that's no big deal at all -- there's still enough...more
