Before the oversized hype of Guitar Hero and the sequels that were to follow, music games were not really a concept for the Playstation system. The only major outlet for music on a gaming system was within the game itself, such as a blockbuster game like Grand Theft Auto III. But in 2001, a company called Harmonix Music System changed the music gaming forever with a game called Frequency. This extremely visually wild game takes you through 3-D tunnel Drums, Synth, FX, Scratch, Bass, Guitar, and Axe instruments. As the music starts, there are indicators that show up in the random tracks that show you

Brad has been a die hard arcade fan ever since he can remember. From the first time he played Space Invaders, to the first time he played Pacman, Brad has always had a love for video games. Hanging out at either the Great American Fun Factory in the mall, or spending the night in front of the glowing games at the local roller rink, he was always thinking about when he can spend the next quarter. He also worked at Babbages, which is now GameStop, for over six years. Mostly because they had a really sweet checkout policy on new products and great discounts. But since he had the Atari 2600, he has never looked back and owned some of the greatest home machines, NES, SNES, GENESIS, Turbo Graphix 16, GameBoy, Game Gear, Lynx, Playsation 1,2,3,4 and Vita, XBOX, Gamecube, and N64...just to name a few. Brad is also a reviewer for Mobile Beat Magazine as well as a freelance videographer, part time disc jockey, performing artist and photographer. But has a true love is for video games and Star Wars, as he is a member of the 501st Central Garrison. His ultimate dream is to own a fully working pinball machine and arcade machine. Difficult to say which one, but a Star Wars one would be nice start.
