For Christians who've always wanted to dabble in "Guitar Hero," but can't bear riffing to songs like "Cheat on the Church," "Cowboys From Hell" or "The Number of the Beast," finally, there's a video game for you.
Look out gamers! There's going to be an extremely crappy version of Guitar Hero coming out exclusively for MAC and PC! Aside from the ridiculous $99.95 price tag this game features Christian bands that most likely none of you listen to. Due in September 2008 Guitar Praise
will feature 52 songs by artists like Toby Mac, Newsboys, and Skillet.
Personally I don't listen to Christian bands, but I have nothing wrong with them except they suck and just aren't my style of music. I am by no means God-bashing or hating on their message though, it's just not music I can get into. There's a news
report about this on Fox News. I know in the past there was a Dance Praise game that ripped off DDR very similar to what this is doing to Guitar Hero. As I understand Dance Praise was the suck.
If you hit that news article you can view some pictures of the game. The notes are triangular instead of round like Guitar Hero or rectangular like Rock Band. Triangles hurt my eyes.
What I would like to see is some more Radiohead in Rock Band. That's the only thing that will give me a true music video game fix! Do you think any gaming sites will even review this soon-to-be catastrophe?
