DJ Hero and DJ Hero 2

When it comes to gaming, I am a PC gamer at heart and very rarely ever get into console gaming.  There has been one exception.  I did buy a console just to be able to play one super awesome game:  DJ Hero 2!  Combining my love of Electronic Dance Music and gaming together into one game was a blast while it lasted.  That was until my bitch ass ex-girlfriend stole my Wii, DJ Hero 2, and DJ Hero Turntable Controllers just to be a trollface when she moved out.  It's ok, I've got a Traktor Kontrol S2 now!

DJ Hero & DJ Hero 2 are both music based video games, much like Guitar Hero and Rockband.  With the DJ Hero games, you use a plastic turntable controller to play.  The controls are much more complex than just tapping buttons in time and order like with the Guitar Hero controllers.  You have to not only tap buttons, but you've gotta learn to scratch, drag, slide, crossfade, double tap and much more.  During freestyle phrases you even get to crossface back and forth between the 2 tracks and can create some seriously wicked remixes on the fly.  It's a ton of fun!  You get to unlock great DJs like Deadmau5 (in DJ Hero 2) and Daft Punk (in DJ Hero).

I highly recommend the DJ Hero games to anyone who likes Electronic Dance Music.  They are so much fun and will give you one hell of a workout!  The games sounds amazing blasted across your surround sound system too.  The DJ Hero games are so much fun, you can even rock a house party with the party mode.  I had picked up the DJ Hero 2 Party pack which can with 2 Turntables and a Microphone.  Yeah, you can even have a 2nd or 3rd person singing or beatboxing along while you spin, cut, duck, and scratch!

You can even customize how your turntable controller looks with a ton of awesome DJ Hero Controller Skins!
