Earlier today, my friends online and I were reading this alternative video game controller article, and bemoaning the fact that the accordion controller depicted doesn’t really exist. We all agreed that we’d totally buy an Accordion Hero videogame.
Thus ensued a bevy of alternative music game controller titles:
14:16 < @Wohali> that's a cute controler, conty
14:17 < @Wohali> can we play weird al songs?
14:17 < @Conty> Wohali: We can play Weird Al dad's songs!
14:17 < @Wohali> oktoberfest!
14:17 < @OldCrow> a pitch convertor controller would be cheap to make these days
14:18 < @Conty> Then we can have Accordion Hero: HEINO Edition!
14:18 < @OldCrow> I mean, one DSP for kazoo hero wouldn't need to be exactly studio quality
14:18 < @Wonky-P> conty, how about moonshine jug hero?
14:19 < @Wonky-P> how about wet finger around the glass hero?
14:19 < @Wonky-P> pan flute hero
14:20 < @Conty> Wonky: Glass Harmonica Hero!
14:21 < @GoofyRobo> I would so buy accordian hero
14:22 < @Wirc_Hat> Pan Flute Hero: The Legend of Zamfir
14:23 < @ShinoWrk> Saxophone Hero, Kenny GX
14:23 < @Wohali> Lawrence Welk's Bubblemania
Which ones would you buy?
P.S. Holding on one more day – woke up feeling pretty good, so I’m staying in forced bedrest another 24h. If this doesn’t do it, I’ll head into the hospital tomorrow.
Lawrence Welkâ€™s Bubblemania, totally!
I’m holding out for Bagpipe Hero.
I’ll go with “strange-whirling-sounds-coming-out-of-my-computer hero.” Or good ol’ “clock-ticking hero.”
