First DJ Hero trailer brings the funk

The first trailer for DJ Hero is out and ready for consumer consumption, bringing with it almost everything anyone could ask for. Funky beats? Check. Strobe lights? Check. Actual gameplay? Erm… nope. Not unless they count character animations that aren’t controlled by the player, which we don’t.

Maybe it’s the conflict of emotions I have to deal with every time I try to decide which expensive peripheral-based game I’m going to buy, this or Scratch: The Ultimate DJ. Maybe it’s the court battle between these two that has made me prone to fly off the handle. Maybe it’s the minute of Gwen Stefani that DJ Hero just made me sit though. Regardless of what it is, I am not impressed yet. Give me something more than crowd animation and lighting effect and we’ll talk.

One question remains unanswered. Do you wanna be the life of the party?
