About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

Konami today announced that Karaoke Revolution Volume 3 will debut this November for PlayStation 2 and will let karaoke crooners sing with -- and compete against -- friends with the addition of duel microphone support and exciting new modes for two mic gameplay. Read more for details and a preliminary song list ...

In addition, Karaoke Revolution Volume 3 includes more than 35 new songs – from timeless classics to today's hottest pop, rock and R&B hits to deliver the ultimate party game for the entire family.

Karaoke Revolution Volume 3's multiple two-microphone gameplay modes allow for karaoke fun for hours on end. Duets mode lets aspiring pop stars play as a team and shoot for high scores by singing along to classic karaoke duet tunes such as "Under Pressure," "Love Shack" and "Ain't No Mountain High Enough." Players can even practice their separate parts and learn how to harmonize with each other to achieve the perfect score. For some friendly competition, two players can square off and take turns singing every other phrase in a song while joining together during the chorus in Sing-Off mode. The player with the most points at the end of the track wins. Knockout mode offers the fiercest karaoke battle yet, pitting players against each other while singing the same song in unison. A battle meter keeps track of the gamers' progress and when it fills up for one player, the other is knocked out!

Karaoke Revolution Volume 3 combines the game's proprietary voice recognition technology – which judges and scores players as they sing their way to stardom – with a variety of new characters, outfits and venues, including many hidden and bonus items. Compatible with any PlayStation 2 USB headset or microphone peripheral, the collection of well-known tunes includes "Beat It," "Killing Me Softly," "New York, New York" and "You're The One That I Want." Following is a partial list of songs included in the game:
