KickBeat is looking like music to the ears of Vita owners
by Abel Girmay

Remember music games? Yeah, those were fun.

With the genre's better (or at least its mainstream) days behind, I'm always interested to see in what weird and unique ways it will pop back up. Enter KickBeat, from the house that brought out Zen Pinball.

While we covered a lot of its specifics when Conrad last saw it at E3, we did recently get to see a few new additions to the combat, including enemy types and combos.

Review: DJMAX Technika Tune photo
Review: DJMAX Technika Tune
by Josh Tolentino

Prior to playing DJMAX Technika Tune for this review, I could count the number of times I had listened to K-Pop music on one hand, one of those being PSY's "Gangnam Style."

To some, that would make me only slightly more qualified to review this Korean-born rhythm game than say, a chimpanzee, or a person without hands, or even someone who is vision- or hearing-impaired.

Whether or not that's true, however, I did have quite a lot of fun playing a great rhythm game, and perhaps the first title yet to make the PS Vita's primary gimmicks fun to use.
