I'm glad I got PaRappa the Rapper 2 on PS4

PaRappa the Rapper 2 holds up so well! As you might have seen, the PlayStation 2 rhythm game became available this week on PS4. It's a classic tale about a rapping dog with a lifetime supply of noodles who really just wants a good burger, d...

 
The Bit.Trip review

Review: The Bit.Trip

The Bit.Trip series holds a special place in my heart. With a wonderful blend of rhythm-based mechanics and arcade-style gameplay spanning various genres, the games are easy to pick up, quick to fall in love with, and yet inc...   read

Rock Band 4
Harmonix rolled out an update for Rock Band 4 earlier this week that included a whole bunch of unexpected additions. It's impressive in its scope. A lot of the changes were meant to make Rock Band 4 feel more like a...   read

Rez Infinite coming to PlayStation VR

See that nuts, Daft Punk style light up suit in the grainy stream footage screenshots? That's Rez's Tetsuya Mizuguchi playing Rez Infinite, which just announced for PS4 and PlayStation VR. I will be sick everywhere and it will be great. (I...

Amplitude set to release on January 5 for PS4

It has been a bit of a wait for Amplitude, Harmonix's 2014 Kickstarter success. It was originally slated for release in March of 2015, but was pushed back a few times to January of 2016. Still, a year is nothing if you consider the last gam...

Activision reveals crowd-sourced music video results for Guitar Hero Live

I'm generally not a fan of lip-sync videos, but it looks like Activision managed to round up quite a few people into their newest scheme for Guitar Hero Live. The gist is that people are tasked with creating a video for Ed Sheeran's "Sing,"...

 
Superbeat review
I've been playing rhythm games since they exploded onto the scene with PaRappa the Rapper in 1997, and having nearly played at least one title of every rhythm game series released I can easily say Superbeat: Xonic is top tier. But be forewarned, this is the Dark Souls...nay...the 127 Hours of music games, only you get to keep your arms attached. SUPERBEAT: XONiC   read

Look like a wasteland warrior when Fallout 4 invades Rock Band 4

If you fancy yourself a living room faux-musician, this is probably the closest you'll ever get to looking like a Fall Out Boy. Harmonix has collaborated with Bethesda to add free Fallout 4 Vault-111 jumpsuits to the Rock Band 4 ...

There's a ton of stuff coming to Rock Band 4 in December, including Rock Band 3

Rock Band 4 launched in a state that felt kind of bare bones. Several features were cut from past games in favor of just getting you to simulate playing music in your living room again. A lot of that's getting added after the fact in a...

Guitar Hero Live adds another live rock concert this week

One of the coolest things about Guitar Hero Live's GHTV element is that Activision, in the near future at least, is keen on supporting it with constant new content. That includes 70 new songs by the end of the year, and updated live concert...

Guitar Hero TV adds Iggy Pop and White Stripes this week

I'm surprised at how much I'm still playing Guitar Hero Live. It's really easy for me to boot up the TV function and just play random songs, which cycle in new tracks on a constant basis. I have over a hundred "free plays" and I rarely use ...

Guitar Hero Live is adding 70 new songs to GHTV by the end of the year

Guitar Hero Live was a pleasant surprise. After Activision milked that cow for so long, I didn't think it could introduce one of the freshest rhythm games in years, but it did. But this is just the start for Guitar Hero TV (GHTV), the ...

PlayStation 4 enabling DJs with Avicii music rhythm game Vector

In 2015, 1 out of 3 humans are DJs. This has led to global gridlock as necessary goods and services plummet under insistence that, "you should come see my set." The population rate is in decline, too, as more men become DJs; while a small ...

You will know (and love) most of Guitar Hero Live's newest songs

You know what they say about saving the best for last. Well, I guess they just say to do it. It's a good idea. Then everyone's like "Wow, we doubted you, but some real nice stuff happened at the end." That's Guitar Hero Live's legacy for th...

Here's how to turn off Rock Band 4's Freestyle guitar solos

Guitar Hero Live is approaching DLC in a fairly controversial way

Re-downloading your Rock Band DLC is a giant pain in the ass on Xbox One

In preparation for Rock Band 4's release next week, I figured it's about time to start downloading the songs I bought on Xbox 360 for use on my Xbox One. There's no doubt in my mind that if I have friends over to play and all the tracks the...

Rock Band 4 releases next week, last chance to stock up on cheap DLC

It may seem counter-intuitive, but this is a rare example of a time when you might want to purchase downloadable content before a game comes out. I know, I know -- we usually rally against that hard, but bear with us just this once. For thr...
