    Calling all 80s throwbacks…

    Ciara O'Brien

    Crack out the neon leg warmers and commence back- combing your hair: Lips is back, this time with the music of the 1980s. While many of us would rather forget the decade, turn it into a game and you can’t help but get involved.

    I Love the 80s covers everything from Blondie and Bananarama to Ultravox and Yazoo. Want to slap on some eyeliner and destroy The Cure? That’s included too. Those not so blessed in the vocal department can turn the mic volume down to practically nothing (that’d be me then) so you can’t hear the out of tune warbling too loudly.

    The good thing about Lips is that it’ll work with a lot of regular USB mics. But if you want to get the extra bits (bonus points for mimicking your avatar’s moves or making a bit of extra noise during a song) you’ll need the official, motion-sensitive mics. Earn medals for being pitch perfect, in time and putting on an award-winning performance.

    Then hope no one around you has caught it on video.
