Shoot spaceships to phat beats in Retro/Grade on Aug. 21


5:30 PM on 07.28.2012



The jury is still out on whether Retro/Grade is a shooter in the mold of a rhythm game or a rhythm game in the mold of a shooter, but you'll be able to have your own say when the game comes to PlayStation Network on August 21st. Personally, I'm leaning toward it being a rhythm game but the genre-blending is part of the game's appeal.

I was impressed by the game when I played it at Fantastic Arcade a year ago, so it's exciting to see it come together in this new trailer and screenshots.

Review: Retro/Grade

Dancing, playing guitar, piloting a ship through alien gunfire, etc. Sometimes you just need to put a little faith into rhythm if you want to succeed. I have a love for both shoot-em-ups and rhythm games. While they occupy di...more

Review: Axiom Verge

It seems like a foregone conclusion when looking at Axiom Verge that comparisons are going to be made to Metroid. It is, without doubt, similar in more ways than it differs from Nintendo's iconic franchise. The differences matter, though, and Axiom Verge merges classic environment design with new mechanical twists, producing a game that feels both familiar and fresh at the same time.more
