Making multiplayer music in Fantasia: Music Evolved

Harmonix revealed a multiplayer mode for Fantasia: Music Evolved at GDC last week alongside some new songs and levels. I jumped in front of a Kinect sensor to try out the new mode, and it wasn't long before I was flapping my arms to the beat.  Can't you hear that boom, badoom, boom, boom, badoom, boom, bass?

Chroma: A musical first-person shooter from Harmonix

It makes sense that when word gets out that Harmonix is working on a new game, everyone is going to want to see it. This was exactly the case at an invite-only showing earlier this month, taking place during D.I.C.E. Summit 2...

A quick look at Audiosurf 2 in Early Access release

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

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.

Fantasia: Music Evolved: Cutest Yetis Ever

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

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 v...

Electronic Super Joy is hardcore, will make you rage

Prepare to die. A lot. Electronic Super Joy drew me in with its pulsing beats and proceeded to bring the pain. With electronic dance music blaring, I stepped up to the controller with a crowd on onlookers at my back. I'd watc...

KickBeat is looking like music to the ears of Vita owners

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...

E3: I'm an official BandFuse: Rock Legends groupie

Does the market really need another guitar game, and one that teaches you how to play guitar at that? The answer is "yes." I'll tell you why in only two words: Zakk Wylde.

GDC: I have seen into the eye of the duck

Jonathon Holmes and Jordan Devore have been fans of Shawn McGrath's Dyad in the past. I played it for about two hours at GDC and I must say, it made me a believer. This is a short bit about my experience with this very unique, psychotic, and amazing indie game.

Preview: Learn to play guitar with BandFuse: Rock Legends

I wasn't quite sure what to expect when I was invited to see a new, previously unannounced music game. Internet hyperbole states that music games, or rather rhythm games involving guitars, are dead, killed by over-satura...
