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.


Xbox 360 to Use Llamasoft's Music Visualizer

Jeff Minter's Llamasoft today announced that it is returning to the forefront of the gaming world with a cutting-edge music visualization system designed for Microsoft's Xbox 360.

Based on Llamasoft's proprietary graphics technology entitled Neon, the Llamasoft visualiser comes pre-installed and is driven both by beat detection and by joypad control. It can be left running on full automatic to provide a music-driven display, or for the full interactive experience players can take control of different aspects of the display - camera, patterns and effect generators - to create a compelling and hypnotic lightshow.

The results have to be seen to be believed: swirling, abstract, multi-layered imagery at a rock-solid frame rate and of a quality that's streets ahead of every other music visualisation system available. You've never seen anything generate live visuals like this - even if you're a professional lighting director.

The new Llamasoft visualiser will redefine the music visualisation genre. It's better-looking by far than every other vis package, and it delivers precision fingertip control of a kind that no one else has even considered before but which is so intuitive that anyone can pick up the basics in seconds. Play your favorite album on your Xbox 360, pick up a controller and jam along visually to the music.
