Vib Ribbon on PS3?
My favourite music game has got to be Frequency. I think it’s better than all 3 of its sequels – Amplitude, Guitar Hero, and Guitar Hero II. But, of course, I have all those games on my PS2 and enjoy my HDTV’s mosh pit with my friends. I’m also looking forward to Guitar Hero III this fall (now by Activision) as well as Garage Band (by Harmonix/MTV/EA).
Now I can add another game to my music-games-to-look-forward-to list. Well, maybe.
It looks like the creator of the cult PSOne hit Vib Ribbon is thinking about how to get his music game creation onto the PS3. I’ve never played the original Vib Ribbon, but it sounds really cool! The best part about the game is that it takes a song from any CD you put into your PlayStation, and uses that as the basis for a game level. That is so liberating! (Of course, some songs are a lot more fun to play that others, from what I hear.) I am sick and tired of video games force-feeding me crap music and telling me all about the stupid band that I care nothing about. I want to play my games to my music. And that’s what Vib Ribbon promises.
