Guitar Praise is a Christian video game knockoff that allows you to - and I quote - "BLAST that solid Christian Rock!" I shit you not. Also - "you'll soon be rockin' with the best while praising the Lord!" Oh goody-goody Saturday night can now be almost as fun as Sunday service. The wireless guitar will allow you to keep on rocking while you stand up, sit down, kneel down, genuflect and receive Holy Communion.
Forgive me Father for I have sinned, I have yanked on my whammy bar inappropriately.
Can you imagine the poor kid that has to tell his new friend that these songs are just as good as Black Sabbath, or The Sword?
Also, I guess they didn't hear Pope Benedict XVI's opinion - "It is possible to modernize holy music, but it should not happen outside the traditional path of Gregorian chants or sacred polyphonic choral music." - Now there is a game that I would like to see.
The Pope may be a closet rocker though, my extensive research has uncovered shocking photographic proof that former Pope John Paul II was indeed a headbanger.
Personally, I am holding out for next big thing : Sousaphone Hero.
Everyone loves a parade!
