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...

A quick look at Audiosurf 2 in Early Access release
by Conrad Zimmerman

Please to be enjoying this short preview of Audiosurf 2 as available in Early Access on Steam. Due for final release later this year, the music-driven game has added a fair bit of complexity to its newest official mode. Maybe a little too much, even.

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.

Yetis should be scary, but they're not in the world of The Haven, a newly revealed area in Harmonix Kinect game Fantasia: Music Evolved. We got a few walkthroughs of this new area at PAX Prime this past weekend, and I'm here to tell you that even the yeti roars were cute. They...sang.

Harmonix's next project is Disney Fantasia: Music Evolved photo
Harmonix's next project is Disney Fantasia: Music Evolved
by Abel Girmay

Fantasia is easily one of the most revered films in the Disney library. It may not have the same layman recognition as Snow White or The Lion King, but that's exactly where so much of its brilliance comes from. It dared to venture away from the company safe zone of princesses and fairy tales, and forgoing the typical dialogue delivered stories in order to splice music and visuals to create a sensory wonderland.

It's this sense of Disney magic that Harmonix is trying to capture with Fantasia: Music Evolved, by giving players a greater sense of agency not just in the music, but in the game's world as well. This is definitely Harmonix's most high concept game, and a complete trip of an experience. Describing something that aims to be as visually and auditory a successor to the Fantasia films is a challenge when only armed with the written word, so here goes nothing.

Dubstep comes to Sound Shapes photo
Dubstep comes to Sound Shapes
by Jordan Devore

As Queasy Games' musical platformer Sound Shapes continues to grow, it was only a matter of time before dubstep found its way in. The wubs are coming by way of a $0.99 Sound Pack that's out right now as DLC. Get out of that refrigerator right now!

And if dubstep isn't the sort of addition to bring you back into the game, there's also a separate '80s Sound Pack available. Later this month, Sound Shapes will get a player-centric update to complement these new sounds for content creators. Milkcrate albums that compile hand-picked community levels will be out for free on May 28.
