Power Gig: Rise of the Six String For Xbox
What could be cooler than learning to play guitar while playing a video game?Power Gig: Rise of the Six String For Xboxis a real guitar with six tunable strings. My 17 year-old son who is a guitar player in his band, Harken, says he is amazed at the quality of the Power Gig: Rise of the Six String. He says the game is really fun and a great way to spend a rainy afternoon.
While the game is "Teen" rated, the rating is due only to mild lyrics in the game's popular songs we all know and love from radio play over the past half-century, from Eric Clapton's Layla to John Mayer's Your Body is a Wonderland.
More information on Power Gig: Rise of the Six String For Xbox: (from their website)
On the gameplay front, Power Gig uses new technology that represents the next evolution of music performance games to provide all players - from casual gamers to the hardcore, from those who have never before picked up a guitar to those who play guitar on a regular basis - with a more authentic and fun experience. The game offers two overarching modes of play. In addition to traditional beat-matching that will be familiar to fans of the band game genre, Power Gig also introduces the option to switch on chording, or chord play. Chording presents the added challenge of playing the game using chords that require specific finger placement on the strings. As players progress through the game, becoming more comfortable with a genuine guitar and potentially choosing to play real power chords, they will find that the byproduct of playing the game is coming away from it with an understanding of some real-life guitar fundamentals.
The World of Ohm
Power Gig: Rise of the SixString takes place in Ohm, a world where music is power. Rockers are the guardians of musical clans, serving their leaders with the mysterious powers of music and Mojo. You and two of your friends take on the role of these Rockers as they encounter power struggles and intrigue. In Ohm, alliances are forged and broken, rulers rise and fall, and heroes are made as competition rages among the rocker clans. Music is power…it's time to play.
