“I’m a science genius girl. I won the science fair. I wear a white lab coat. DNA strands in my hair.”
A pair of PlayStation 2 games that, as we discover, were vital precursors to many rhythm action hits of the mid-to-late 2000s, including Guitar Hero, DJ Hero, Rock Band and – seemingly – several others, despite selling relatively few copies. In this podcast Leon, Josh and Karl give these early Harmonix games their due, and we also hear from some FreQuency and Amplitude playing correspondents.
Music used in this issue:
1: Science Genius Girl by Freezepop
2: Everyone Says “Hi” – Metro Remix by David Bowie
