    Well, the deal has been sealed. I will purchase another game this year. So far, it’s been Cars (for my kids), Lips, and Prototype. I’m already 99% confirmed to be getting The Beatles: Rock Band and Lego Rock Band. DJ Hero is also looking very tempting.

    That said, here comes “Lips: Number One Hits”, which is basically the sequel to the original installment. I only got Lips 1 for the wireless mics (hoping they’d eventually be compatible with Rock Band 2). Then my family found that Lips is fun to play. It’s no Rock Band, but doesn’t involve any button mashing or drumming skills. It’s easy and fun.
    Lips 2 (or Lips: Number One Hits) has been announced for a few months. What’s new then? More songs have been announced. The one that’s going to make this game a must have is, California Love by Dr. Dre and 2Pac. It’s possibly my favorite hip-hop track of all time, and a past club favorite.

    Here’s the announced list:
    * “California Love” by 2Pac feat. Dr. Dre and Roger Troutman
    * “Barbie Girl” by Aqua
    * “Just Dance” by Lady Gaga feat. Colby O’Donis
    * “Everybody Wants to Rule the World” by Tears for Fears
    * “The Fear” by Lily Allen
    * “Don’t Phunk With My Heart” by Black Eyed Peas
    * “I Don’t Feel Like Dancin'” by Scissor Sisters
    * “Heartless” by Kanye West
    * “Touch My Body” by Mariah Carey
    * “Hey There Delilah” by Plain White T’s
    * “Always On My Mind” by Pet Shop Boys
    * “I’m Yours” by Jason Mraz
    * “Push the Button” by Sugababes

    So, there’s stuff in there for the grown’d ups and the kiddies. Add that to the ability to import all the Lips 1 songs, and I see this as a hit release. If they add a little more game functionality (like “real” online play and better external song import features, like lyric downloads), it will be another great party/time killer game.
