So... who's going to play this game in their underwear when no one else is looking?

Not me.

Definitely not me.

The fact the game is out in a little over a month and they haven't announced a song list yet worries me.

@warerare

Think it'll be a lot of DLC? Or just a lot of bad songs?

I know it says it has songs that go all the way back to the 60s. So we can cross our fingers and hope for Beach Boys, anyway.

Not that I'm going to play it. Definitely not me.

I would love some Beach Boys, they were on Jools Holland on the BBC this week and they are still awesome. Can't believe they are back with Brian

I'm going to continue to blame this game for my bomb of a girl group performance at the Wii U experience. Stupid game!
Posted: 09/30/12, 03:09:37
LOL.

This game was balls at the Wii U experience.

@kriswright



It could not be helped.

The demo at Wii U xp wasn't really enough to tell anything from it. I need to see the actual score mode and the song list. I doubt I'll get this though, been years since I got a karaoke game.
Posted: 09/30/12, 07:14:33
I don't think there is a score mode......yes I am being serious.

@warerare

Yeah, it looked to me like less of a game and more like just straight karaoke software.
Posted: 09/30/12, 18:25:48
The Nintendo rep at the event Anand and I went to took like a whole minute* to explain that not having score modes and such makes it a better experience because you can just focus on the pure experience without competition ruining it for anyone.

OMG HOW COME I NEVER THOUGHT OF THINGS THIS WAY BEFORE? I HAVE BEEN FREED FROM THE CHAINS OF OPPRESSION!!!

*A minute is a long time at an event that is supposed to be two hours long and has big lines but mysteriously ends early for no reason.

@Zero

I suppose the thing we have to admit about SiNG is that it's designed for the sort of people who know they can't sing, but would still be embarrassed to have a computer tell them that.

I have a bunch of old Karaoke revolutions so I did ask at Wii U xp if you could take the voice out because it was so pointless. Rep said there was a combination of modes.

- score mode (dunno if note tubes, but she said there's something that you can see how you compare to the pitch)
- can do voice + music, music only, voice only, acapella (personaly I can't see how no-background music would be any fun unless you're planning to audition for American Idol)
- you can also make noise with the Wiimotes (I assume it's either Wii-Music-like or how the DS music player can make drum noises?)

@Zero

Good Balls or Bad Balls?

@Zero

Maybe they Polled people, or something, about Rock Band or Guitar Hero about what they liked least, and they answered back "failing / doing poorly" or "the score." I can understand that (though I don't endorse it).

@heliumsky

I actually think thats kinda neat. I fake drum along with a BUNCH of songs. It'd be fun to actually make drum noises!


--YES, REALLY! Why do you guys hate fun so much!?

@heliumsky

Hey, fantastic. That's sort of a scoop, I think. At least I hadn't read that anywhere.
Posted: 09/30/12, 21:15:36
Watch it be all public domain stuff like Wii Music...
Posted: 10/01/12, 00:22:22
@Mop it up

Okay, everyone! Let's all sing "Home on the Range" followed by "Oh, Susannah" followed by selections from the Latin Mass! Yeeeeeeah!

@kriswright
It's the Just Dance of singing games!

I actually have a relative who is really terrible at Karaoke games (and music games, in general). Breaking them out when he's around is always incredibly uncomfortable. On the other hand, they're so good for parties!

@heliumsky
I think you DO have a scoop on your hands. Sell it to Kotaku! They pay top dollar for SiNG intel.

I used to play drums with songs on the DSi all the time. For, like, the first five days that I had it, I mean. I like how real karaoke boxes have tambourines, and stuff.

@kriswright
I'd probably rather have that 1800s shit than modern music.

hair metal > 1800s shit > modern music

@Anand
Well considering the other rep was trying tell you guys that it's BETTER without all the other modes, I don't really know what's actually true! Is there really no info about SiNG? (I've not kept up with it)

I had thought at the time that it was neat that it makes SiNG like a Casual combo of Karaoke Revolution, Just Dance, and Wii Music with those modes, if it turns out to be true. (I'm also one of the few that liked Wii Music too, the two weeks that I played it.)

People trying to do the runs in Latin masses would probably be hysterical.
I had to learn a Gospel Mass once.... the clapping noise in the Wiimotes would work perfectly for that, lol.
