Just What the World Needs – More DJ Heroes

The Guitar Hero craze isn’t quite over, but it’s certainly spawned millions of pimple-faced Eddie Van Halens. I know there are kids out there that love the game and that also play the guitar – hey, that’s great. But, for every kid that loves Guitar Hero and can also play an actual guitar, there are 5,000 that don’t know a chord. I really shouldn’t be talking – I can’t play either one.

And now, for those of you who think DJs are musicians and that putting a spin on someone else’s art is a skill, there’s a new game for you. For $120 you can pretend to be a pretend musician. It’s DJ Hero.

The best thing about DJ Hero will be the thousands of new images you’ll find searching Google Images.

It’s a fairly slick looking unit and you can get your own case for the turntable, just so you can lug it around like an idiot. The difference between DJ Hero and Guitar Hero? Guitar Hero isn’t nearly as difficult as playing an actual guitar, while DJ Hero is probably harder than being an actual DJ, but you should still be able to live with yourself.

This is just another way of procuring ghettoness in white suburbia. I can’t wait to see the pictures.

DJ Hero is out. Do your kid a favor, save $100 and get him a football. When he gets older, he’ll thank you for it – so will the rest of the world.
