Rock Band? Played out! Guitar Hero? Chyuh! Sooooo yesterday. I’m trying to get my hands on this hot, new video game that all the kids are playing: Rock Journalist Hero.
You can play as play in Lester Bangs or as a condescending Pitchfork critic as you "transmogrify inarticulate responses from lithe idiot savants into passably meaningful comments" and "challenge yourself to write more than 70 by-the-numbers profiles and reviews, including: The fatuous British band that thinks it’s the new U2!"
Hilarious! But, sadly, not a real game. It’s a spoof dreamed up by Vanity Fair’s David Itzkoff. Check it out here.
