Ubisoft swipes Guitar Hero developer FreeStyleGames from Activision

Guitar Hero Live was a fantastic rhyhtm game that breathed new life into the genre for me after nearly a decade of safe plays from developers like Harmonix. But a lot of things were going against it -- the "live" gimmick was off-puttin...   read

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....   read

Swing, Swing on over to Rock Band 4 for some 'classic' DLC

Have you forgotten about the new year yet? Well, Harmonix certainly hasn't as they've announced a slew of downloadable songs to kick off 2017. Along with some new hits come a few "classic" songs from previous games. While that is super neat...   read

Nice! Crypt of the NecroDancer is getting a DLC prequel

Crypt of the NecroDancer is such a neat game. It's a fusion of rhythm (you need to time your movement to the beat of the music as best you can) and roguelike dungeon-crawling (you need foresight and strategy to hit enemies but not be hit b...   read

A PaRappa the Rapper game has been rated in Korea

Whenever there's PaRappa news, our own Jonathan Holmes is on it -- and I'm grateful. I love this series, but Holmes seems to have his own personal radar for it. There have been rumblings for a new iteration for a long while, but the Korean ...   read

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...   read

Review: Rez Infinite

Rez asks a lot of you before you get past the title screen. It begins with a litany of warnings about sensitivity to lights, even without using the optional PlayStation VR accessory, and recommends headphones to boot. Unlike most other...   read

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...   read

Review: Harmonix Music VR

Brett said pretty much everything I could possibly say about the lost art of just "listening to music." Singles have increasingly dominated the industry, and you'd be hard pressed to get someone to name several tracks off of any given major...   read

Rock Band 4 is getting some more songs that hardly qualify as rock

I can honestly say that is has been a long time since I've bought anything Rock Band related. The game was practically my life during college and I didn't start to wane in interest until around 2011. Rock Band 3 really did have everything I...   read

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 ...   read
