Finally Broke My Crowdfunding Rule
By oblivion437
Posted on 01/12/15
I've had a long-standing rule to avoid getting involved in any sort of crowdfunded activities.  I didn't donate to Shadowrun or Wasteland, but I did buy and enjoy both of them (I'm plugging both of those games right now, just so you know they're good).  I haven't...

DAILY MANIFESTO

Optimus Primus

Posted on Monday, May 15 @ 22:54:23 Eastern by Mike_Reilly
In an unprecedented level of badass, Primus hooks up the original master track of "John the Fisherman" for Guitar Hero 2. No pretense, no fees, just gangster.

Bobbing-for-tracks for Harmonix and RedOctane to flesh out the first Guitar Hero last year involved the highly empirical process of scribbling out wish lists on bathroom walls, praying to FSM, and a pickle. Now with their newfound fame, the process has gotten much more streamlined.

Primus bassist, vocalist, and generally groovy guy Les Claypool, being a big honking fan of the first Guitar Hero, proactively got back to our Dev Heroes with his "wee" contribution. Seems like rad people play video games too. Either that or Les is a huge nerd like the rest of us, except way, way more babe-friendly... regardless, bravo!

It's a fitting gesture, being that video games, as an art form, have more in common with music (see: manual dexterity, real-time interactivity, and the whole "math" thing) than cinema (see: the fact that you can see stuff).

Suddenly, I don't feel so bad about late-night rock-outs in Chuck Norris jammies. It's just rough to think that some people make bank for doing it. Wait, how am I broke again?

So some straight-up props for keeping it as real as Al Green on vinyl. I think I'm inspired enough to actually buy some CD's for a change with some change. Wait, how am I broke again?

Speaking of starving for skills, how about throwing in some Minibosses: "Ninja Gaiden Live" in the mix? Besides being a rocking track from some fellow poverty-skimmers, it'd be great to see if Nintendo can get retrospective and apply some Wii philosophy, Primus style. That'd be a real way to prove it, especially since we sure know that Sony won't.
