If you eat, breathe, and inappropriately dream about music games, then let your web browser’s bookmarking function know you’ll be stopping by in a few seconds. See, veteran video games writer, musician and G4tv.com contributor Joe Rybicki recently launched Plastic Axe, a passion project of his, designed specifically for the millions of virtual rock lovers out there looking for all the latest and greatest news pertaining to all of your favorite instrument-based music games.
The site offers plenty of music news and gaming updates, so you’ll know exactly what’s happening in the world of digital rock-dom, but the real kicker is the site’s Vault, an evolving database of over 1,800 songs from 18 music games. In addition to providing you the artist, song name, release date, disc and game the song appeared on, each song has a direct link to Amazon and/or iTunes (if the song is available for purchase). It’s a solid little feature that has the potential to bring many a music enthusiast’s credit card to its knees.
In other words, this is one seriously comprehensive collection, so if you ever have to settle a debate over a particular song or a particular music game, or you feel like dropping hundreds of dollars, 99¢ at a time, you know exactly where to go.
