Rocksmith Video Game

Rocksmith Video GameOk this is just down right cool. If you played and loved any of the video game versions of Guitar Hero or Rock Band over the past few years, then get ready to be blown away. The new Rocksmith game allows you to play using ANY REAL GUITAR. The game is for Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. It includes a 1/4 inch to USB cable with the game so that you can plug your guitar directly into the game console.

This game has the fun factor of a video game, but it does really teach you how to play guitar — on a REAL guitar. In addition to the 50 songs that you can learn and play along with, there are also “mini-games” within the game that help to re-enforce guitar player skills such as scales, harmonics, etc.

This game is great for beginners who have never played guitar before all the way up to advanced players. No one is promising that you will become a all star guitar player over night here, but if you want to learn and improve your skills, this is sure a fun way to go about it.

There are more than 40 songs on the track list that spans recent hits from artists such as Rihanna and old school classics from The Jackson Five.
This game is rated for everyone 10 years old and up and great for individual play or multi-player mode.

If you want to really feel like you are participating in the games but don’t happen to live near snow or simply don’t want to have to leave the comfort of you couch, then perhaps a Winter Olympic themed video game is the perfect choice for you!

There are 2 new video games available and designed for the 2010 winter olympics. One game rates very well by customers on amazon, but the other has rated poorly.

Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games The top pick based on amazon customer reviews is Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Winter Games which is available on Nintendo Wii and Nintendo DS(i). This popular and highly rated game was just released in October 2009 in anticipation of the 2010 Winter Games.

Players can compete in real Winter Olympic Events and over-the-top Dream Events alone or with up to 4 players in multiplayer mode.

Vancouver 2010 - The Official Video Game of the Olympic Winter Games For the Xbox 360 or Playstation 3 is the Vancouver 2010 – The Official Video Game of the Olympic Winter Games. This game is not getting as many positive ratings from amazon customers as the Mario and Sonic game, but may still fill your need for Winter Olmpic gaming on PS3 or Xbox 360.
