TIMPUEY, Hong Kong – The Acclaim corporation is set to make one of the biggest video game releases in recent memory next week with the follow-up to its trend-setting industry giant “Guitar Hero.” It’s a new twist on the music game genre, called “Cowbell Hero.”

We have found that many of our customers want to play the guitar but lack the intelligence or dexterity to use the guitar shaped controllers our games use. We figured even a complete idiot could play the cowbell. Advanced sales are through the roof and we will not be able to keep up with demand. Skill less people are a major demographic and I think we nailed it this time. – James Krill (Marketing Manager Acclaim Worldwide)
