Blowing into the microphone won't let you win at Lips anymore

0

For the Xbox 360's first foray into the karaoke game genre, Lips wasn't too bad a start. However, there was one huge problem -- you didn't have to sing at all to win the game, which more or less countered the game's entire existence. Plagued by a "white noise" issue, the game only required you to blow into the microphone or rake it along your couch in order to score points. Singing fans need fear no more, however, as Lips is updating to eliminate the problem.

An upcoming update claims to have changed the scoring algorithm to eliminate "white noise scoring," and also brings a number of other improvements to the game. Song leaderboards, a mic calibration tool to reduce lag between the visuals and the sound and a DLC news ticker are all featured in the patch, which should work together to make Lips a much tighter experience. 

Unfortunately, none of these updates add Electric Light Orchestera songs to the game, which is a continued failing of all music games and the obvious reason why videogames will never be taken seriously, ever.
