Gamers are no exception in this, and games like those that can be played on the Wii Gaming System are making it possible. Over the years these music games have captured the attention and imagination of thousands of gamers.
More and more games hit the market each year featuring some aspect of making music using the latest in video game technology to make the experience as real as possible for gamers, but can it be real enough without the accessories that go along with it?
Dance Pads, Mats, and Games
With games like Dance Dance Revolution, Just Dance, and Dancing with the Stars, it’s not surprising that there dance pads and mats would hit the market soon after the games or with the games themselves as a bundle. Not all of these pads and mats are created equal, and some are better than others in terms of what they can handle.
Dancing is a very energetic activity, and the games on the market for the Wii can get even more energetic. Players need a dance pad or mat that will stand up to prolonged use and last. These pads feature some of the same wireless technology that has made the Wii remote stand out, and no dance game would be complete without a pad or mat that can give hours of enjoyment for even the most vigorous dancer,
Microphones and Karaoke Games
Even a lot of non-gamers enjoy karaoke, and what better way is there to bring together friends and family than with a night of singing together? Players don’t have to be able to sing like a star or even be able to carry a tune to enjoy these games. Games like Karaoke Revolution and Disney Sing It allow players to sing their favorite pop hits and enjoy a fun time with friends and family.
It’s only natural that games like this would need microphones to play them, and while some games come with a microphone, others may not. Luckily, players have a choice when it comes to a microphone accessory to meet their gaming needs. One such choice is the Wii SingSong Duet Pro Microphone that features accurate voice reproduction and allows players to hear their voice with perfect clarity even if they can’t carry a tune.
Guitars, Drums and Games
For anyone that ever wanted to be a rock star there are games like the popular Guitar Hero. The game has seen a number of expansions as well as sequels over the years, and it centers around players playing some of their favorite songs on an electric guitar or axe. The popularity of the Guitar Hero games has brought about the release of a number of guitar accessories that players can use in their attempt to rise to the top and become a Guitar Hero.
Guitar Hero isn’t the only game on the market that allows players to live their rock and roll dreams. Games like Band Hero and Rock Band take the rock gaming experience to a whole new level. Friends and family can come together to take the stage and form their own gaming bands. To make this possible and give players the most from their gaming experience as a band, drum accessories have been released that allow players to play and sing together.
Friends and family can set up for a full band experience or just play solo. The guitar accessories for the Wii make use of the remote’s wireless technology by plugging the remote into the axe and playing, but the drums do not. Using its own remote transmitter, the drum set communicates with the Wii in much the same way as the remote except that a receiver needs to be plugged into one of the Wii’s USB ports to communicate, which is included with the drums.
The drums are made up of four durable strike pads to simulate drumming, and there are even accessories for this accessory. Drum Pad Silencers allow drummers to play quietly into late night without bothering anyone else, and they also protect the pads from the wear and tear of long use. The silencers are relatively cheap which makes replacing them easier than replacing the drum accessory.
Whether it’s playing solo on the guitar or drums or throwing them both together with a microphone, Wii music gaming couldn’t be more fun. Gathering friends and family for a fun rock game experience is sure to be memorable with all the accessories available to make the rock and roll experience a great one.
