Review: Rock Band Rivals

Ever since the announcement of Rock Band 4, Harmonix has held steady in its assertion that we shouldn't expect Rock Band 5 in a few years' time. Rock Band 4 is a platform now, not a sequel that's meant to lead to yet another seque...

Review: Thumper

"You are a space beetle. Brave the hellish void and confront a maniacal giant head from the future." Ever since hearing this strange summary or some earlier iteration of it years ago, I have been on board with Thumper. The unnerving rhyt...

Rez Infinite's Area X reminds me of Child of Eden

We're less than a month out from Rez Infinite, and here I was thinking we might not get a sampling of the all-new "Area X" before the rhythmic arcade shooter launches for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation VR. I thought Enhance Games was going ...

Talking Lumines with the great 'time thief' Tetsuya Mizuguchi

It's been many years since I've played Lumines on account of having a PlayStation Portable that is somehow both lost and broken, not to mention the fact that I've always been more of a Rez guy, but there's plenty good reason to talk about t...

Review: Tadpole Treble

If I had to pick one word to describe Tadpole Treble, that word would be "charming." It's a simple premise, and it seems to have been inspired by the musical tadpole pond minigame in Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars. The creative ...

Ubisoft's new game is for all the singer ladies (and men too)

In the easily-Instagramable now that we live in, people expect to be able to capture and share everything that happens. Bonus points if there's quick access to some sort of production values. It's why everyone on Snapchat has a dog face. I...

Harmonix: Rock Band 4 bundles were too expensive

Rock Band wraps up Fender for another decade

Fender is going to be the signature look of Rock Band for a long time to come. If Harmonix is still pumping out Rock Band games 10 years from now, it'll be a Fender-styled plastic instrument hanging around your neck. In a press r...

Review: Audioshield

For the last few weeks, I've had an HTC Vive set up in my living room, pulling it out when friends or family are visiting to show off the wonders of VR. While experiences like Tilt Brush or Space Pirate Trainer draw interest, Audioshield al...

Rock Band 4 crowdfunding campaign fails

In what may or may not be a surprise depending on your perspective, the PC version of Rock Band 4 isn't going to happen. The crowdfunding campaign, held on the investment-based Fig platform, failed to meet its goal. In total, the campaign o...

Rock Band in VR is the best way to play alone

Faux-rocking in the living room has been a wildly popular pastime over the years, as Harmonix married the rhythm and party genres with Rock Band. So many people have fond memories of the franchise partly because they enjoy playing musician,...

Guitar Hero Live players love them some Tenacious D

FreeStyle Games has come out with a list of the most-played songs in Guitar Hero Live over the holidays and I can't be the only one who finds lists like this somewhat entertaining. Between December 24 and January 3, the most popular on-dema...

 
 
Review: Chiptune Champion photo

Review: Chiptune Champion

I love chiptune music and I love music and rhythm games, so of course I had to play Chiptune Champion, which combines them both.  It might not be perfect, and it might not be much to look at it, but it has its charm.
