PC Port Report: KickBeat

Last year, KickBeat released on PS3 and PS Vita, and we quite liked the "music dressed up as a fighting game." The final word on it was that it featured solid rhythm gameplay, but was held back by a few questionable song choi...

Review: BandFuse: Rock Legends photo
Review: BandFuse: Rock Legends
by Ian Bonds

My family is very musically inclined. My father sings, and my mother sings and plays guitar. My wife's family is also musical; playing piano, guitar, drums, etc. between her, her brother, father, aunt, and so on. When I was about 12, I got an acoustic guitar for my birthday. I didn't start taking lessons for it until I was 17, in high school, once they finally started offering classes.

I'm the mutant of the family. I have no real discernible musical talent. While I do a passable job at singing, I can't really play any instruments. And yet...I own four guitars. Real ones. I also own four plastic guitars for games like Guitar Hero and Rock Band. That's how you'll get me to learn and play: make it a game.

BandFuse: Rock Legends was made for people like me. And people like my family. And sometimes, both at the same time.

Iron Maiden gallops onto Rocksmith 2014 as DLC

So, how's the guitar learnin' going? You making some real progress? Rocksmith 2014 said it'd teach you to play guitar, so I can only assume that any lack of success in this department falls squarely on your shoulders. Oh...

Tap happy with Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call  photo
Tap happy with Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call
by Dale North

Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call is more of the same, but I doubt any Theatrhythm fan will be complaining about that. More music from more Final Fantasy games and more tapping action. More just-misses. More cramped hands. I can't wait.
