Rock Star Games

First we had Rockstar games, now come rock star games, as: "Joe Perry, famed guitarist from Aerosmith, has launched his own brand of hot sauce called The Boneyard Brew. The top notch game designers at Star Mountain Studios have concocted a dish of their own inspired by this tasty sauce, a game called Genie Joe and the Axeman. This fast paced arcade style game features Chef Anthony, an intrepid saucier who must race around several far flung landscapes gathering up all the ingredients he needs to make Joe’s famous brew. The evil Axeman, a quirky character who fancies himself a rival to Joe Perry, has sent out his legion of sour note minions to thwart Anthony. Joe Perry makes an appearance in the game as a dark but whimsical animated magical genie with the power to assist Anthony in his quest for the perfect hot sauce. The game will debut in early 2004, on the Ashley Food website and the Star Mountain Studios website. It will be playable online for the MAC or PC as a free game." Meanwhile, The Adrenaline Vault News (thanks space captain) has this:
Blabbermouth.net reports KORN frontman Jonathan Davis is developing a video game called Pop Scars in which trendy musicians pummel each other Soul Calibur-style within intricately designed worlds. The game is slated to feature musicians such as Mary J. Blige and Limp Bizkit. Davis said he's been involved in every part of the development process and is currently meeting with different game makers to find a home for the product.

I saw Autograph open for Van Halen in the late 80's early 90's.
Boy did they suck live.

I saw Stabbing Westward open for Depeche Mode a few years ago, and they sounded horriable. But it wasn't the band - it was whoever was on the soundboard. Because DM sounded fine...

I was running out of easily-recognizable duos

How about Lennon/McCartney vs Jagger/Richards? Hell, I'd go for a Plant/Page vs Tyler/Perry match...

Anyways, time to go hit the calculus homework. Anybody know some good online tutorials on Integrals?

Pass with honors. BoC is like Nazareth--one or two metal-like songs, and the rest of their stuff is wildly varied and generally not rock-like, but they still get classed as 'heavy metal'. Besides, I was running out of easily-recognizable duos, unless you want me to start naming people from the Sleeze Beez, Autograph, White Lion, Lynch Mob and/or Kix. *Laughs*

Dammit.

Now I'm going to have to go back and compulsively play Vice City just for the Lovefist missions.

Eric Bloom and Buck Dharma - No idea

I'd give you a pass on this one. I wouldn't consider Blue Oyster Cult to be a hair metal band. But that's just me.

Heh. I get the feeling I'm going to have to list the bands a few of these guys are from, unless any of you guys are also into 80s hair metal.

Okay I'll take a crack at it:

Rob Halford - Judas Priest
Brian Johnson - AC/DC
Bruce Dickinson - Iron Maiden
Ronnie James Dio - Black Sabbath
Bret Michaels and C.C. DeVille - Poison
Eric Bloom and Buck Dharma - No idea

So do I pass?

Actually there's a really good chance that it could be worse. DJV, surprisingly, was a good wrestling game. Say what you want about the characters and theme, but the engine was solid.
Perhaps he meant that Wu-Tang game...

I think you would be hard pressed to stump the music fans on this board. I'm not a big fan of the big hair era and I know who all of these guys are.

From the news post:

Joe Perry makes an appearance in the game as a dark but whimsical animated magical genie with the power to assist Anthony in his quest for the perfect hot sauce.

I think Joe hit the pipe one too many times if he is agreeing to stuff like this. I'm sure the hot sauce tie in at the supermarket is already in the works.

My immediate reaction was somewhere between Riker and Camaro76. I'm distressed by the thought that this probably isn't a joke, and vaguely relieved to see that I'm not alone. Maybe "KISS: Psycho Circus" was the high-point of rock gaming?

Someone at Star Mountain Studios has been hitting 'the sauce' and it sure as hell ain't 'The Boneyard Brew'. I supposed it could be worse, and there'd also be some kind of movie license tie-in bullcrap. Exactly who are these POS games being marketed to? Is Aerosmith or Korn even relevant anymore? Limp Bizkit is trendy?

And if I just gave someone out at Star Mountain Studios a new idea, please shoot me. Make it a .50 caliber.

What a horrible horrible idea. Wasn't there a fighting game with rappers already? Or was that (wisely) canned before its release?

How about unlockable old-school metal frontmen? I, for one, would pay my $50 to, say, face off Rob Halford against Brian Johnson. Or, better yet, Dee Snider against Ozzy Osbourne. *Glee* Heck, mix it up a little, add in guitarists. Suddenly Stevie Ray Vaughn has to defend against an angered Satriani, maybe a three-for-all with Angus Young. With special extra bonus cheats for giant Nigel Tufnel heads on everybody.

Edit: Bruce Dickinson vs Ronnie James Dio. Doubleteam action with Bret Michaels and C.C. DeVille against Eric Bloom and Buck Dharma. Heh. I get the feeling I'm going to have to list the bands a few of these guys are from, unless any of you guys are also into 80s hair metal.

On second thought, that would be way too cool, so it's never gonna happen. Fun to think about, though.

While I hate Korn and Limp Bizkit and all those Nu?metal rockers, I think his game will be decent enough. If he's basing his game around a similar fighting engine as Soul Calibur (I read this in an interview posted on MTVnews.com earlier this week) at least he has set his sights high. The big problem I think he'll run into is pop icons wanting to be in a game that encourages violence, that would prove to be some bad PR. But it would be cool to see JT take on Britney or something.
