Double Kick Heroes' multi-eyed demon train is metal as heck

Taiko Drum Master is good, clean fun, but you know what it isn't? Metal. I mean, not just the material the game is made out of (plastic) or what actual taiko drums are built from (wood). But also the chipper J-pop just doesn't appeal to the...   read

Review: Dub Dash

Rhythm games are always interesting because of how much emphasis rests on the music. Don't like the music? Well, chances are you won't like the game, regardless of the mechanics. There's a lot of subjectivity there, which makes reviewing th...   read

Guitar Hero Live is resurrecting the infamous 'Through the Fire and the Flames'

Activision has been steadily supporting Guitar Hero Live's TV element for months now, adding constant new content to the game. Although it has microtransactions the system is more than fair, and allows for a ton of songs to be added in, fre...   read

Get your body Lady for Idolmaster: Platinum Stars' trailer

It wasn't enough for Bandai Namco to merely announce that [email protected]: Platinum Stars was on its way to PS4 this year, oh no. No, they had to show the thing off in motion today, and I have to say it's looking quite good.  The bigg...   read
