Battle of the Bands screens and trailer

Battle of the Bands, known before as Band Mashups, is a videogame really similar to Guitar Hero developed for the Nintendo Wii. In fact, if it wasn't from the fact that the songs can go from rock to latin to hip-hop and other styles on a whim, it could be identified as a part of the hit series. Some screens and a trailer are available inside.

Band Mashups on the beat

Musical videogame Band Mashups has been announced a little bit less than a week ago on the Nintendo Wii. THQ offers the possibility to revisit this universe with a handful of screenshots and, more importantly, the very first gameplay video. I'm not sure to understand what the hell is going on the screen, but the instant musical style change is funny.

Band Mashups announced

THQ prepares a new musical game for the Nintendo Wii : Band Mashups, where up to two players will be able to use one of the 11 bands available which are trying to topple the evil Mr. Hong. The concept is a modification of the musical style as the game progresses (rock, funk/hip-hop, country, latin and marching band). The game has 30 unique tracks from the last four decades recorded in all the above styles for a grand total of 150 tracks. Release date is set to next April.

    KORNdog for me the more important games in VR are the ones from indie studio's who are conceptually not playing it safe, they're experimental and unique and are offering experiences we wouldn't get otherwise (27 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog but for consumers it's one of the most "standard" experiences in VR in the sense its a normal game we're accustomed to. (29 minutes ago)

    KORNdog @MrWhite: i'd actually consider RE7 to be one of the safer experiences in VR becasue it is a mainstream title. i mean, it's added work from capcoms point of view (30 minutes ago)

    Melmoth @GriftGFX: looks a bit like Audioshield, which is good fun. [url] (1 Hour ago)

    Melmoth engines to get good results. graphics hardware would also need more than a few changes. I think this will the biggest hurdle to get devs to support VR (1 Hour ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth and some of them not that far away. problem is more on the software side. eye-tracking with foveated rendering doesn't work well with traditional rasterization, and would require fully rewritten (1 Hour ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @MrWhite: wireless HMD, inside-out tracking. great for convenience. Eye tracking+4K'ish displays, improved clarity without (potentially) killing performance. important for the VR onwards. (1 Hour ago)
