Rhythm game Voez gets 18 new songs on Nintendo Switch

Today's free update for Voez on Nintendo Switch serves as a nice reminder that hey, I should get this game soon -- definitely before I'm swept up in Arms and Cave Story+ and Splatoon 2. The touch-based rhythm title has gained 18 new songs o...

Review: Deemo: The Last Recital

A few weeks ago, a very smart man wrote a very stupid article arguing games should move past the idea they are a vehicle for storytelling that could rival film, television, and literature. I wish not to start that debate again other than to...

Thumper slides to Nintendo Switch in two weeks

Drool is bringing its rhythm-action game Thumper to Switch on May 18, 2017. That gives you just two weeks to cram in an intensive training regimen to get your reflexes in tip-top shape. I believe in you! The Switch version supports HD Rumbl...

Thumper will take Xbox One players on a trip this spring

Drool's rhythmic space-beetle adventure Thumper is coming to Xbox One this spring. Play it yet? You should, some day, if you're partial to on-rails rhythm games. Here's a quick thought from my eight-out-of-ten review for the PlayStation 4 ...

See how Rock Band VR's set list is shaping up

Last time we checked in on Rock Band VR, Brett told you about three songs that had made the cut for the set list: "Walk This Way," "When You Were Young," and "Ain't It Fun." Good times. Simpler times. He's down in San Francisco doing Very I...

Rock Band VR takes the stage in late March

The headliner, like any good rock star, is keeping the crowd waiting. Everyone presumed it'd be ready to rock when the Oculus Touch controls released. Nope. Headliners go on stage when they're damn well good and ready. Harmonix has just re...

Review: Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Future Tone

If I didn’t know better and wasn’t aware that the timelines don’t quite add up, I’d say the subtext around the release of Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Future Tone feels aggressive, even adversarial....

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...

Exclusive: A taste of the Tales of the Elements soundtrack

I got an unusual e-mail a few days ago. I'm not especially well versed in the subject matter, but I found it interesting, and hopefully you will too. Some of you might remember Jayson Napolitano, who used to run the "Note Worthy" and "The S...

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: Hatsune Miku: Project Diva X

The kawaii queen and her Vocaloid cronies are back to pleasure your earlobes with their magical robo-voices for the first time on PlayStation 4, and the third time on PlayStation Vita. That's right, the PS4 finally has an exclusive music an...

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 developer Harmonix has two very obvious goals in mind for the release of the Rivals expansion in October. On one hand, it wants to give existing customers something new, a reason to keep playing the game. On the other hand -- and ...
