I’m not to sure what to make of this, and I don’t know if you guys are into this kinda thing..BUT! THQ a computer game developer based in the UK(?) is make this new game for the Nintendo Wii called, Band Mashups. I dunno if it has actual mashups, like what we feature here, or if it is something like Rock Band or Guitar Hero but mashup versions, like Smash-up Derby. Regardless, it is an interesting direction, even just to use the “Mashup” word in the name of some commercial product. For the outside world, it means one thing, and for others it will mean something else. Who knows where this will go!!
To quote the THQ peeps;
“Band Mashups takes an innovative approach to the rhythm/action genre by blending music and combat in the ultimate battle of the bands,” said Randy Shoemaker, global brand director, THQ. “Using a rhythm based game-play mechanic, the game delivers 70 over-the-top musical weapons and utilizes the Wii Remote’s functionality to deliver a completely original musical combat experience. Fighting with a sniper violin or flamethrower guitar is something gamers should definitely look forward to.”
