Thumper will hit Xbox One this month

Thumper came out of nowhere for me. Billed as a "rhythm violence" game I didn't really get it, until I played it in VR. It utilizes a soundtrack that's equal parts entrancing and unsettling, and combines it with a very cool roller coas...

You're lost without this Rock Band 4 DLC

With how popular Ghost became to the Metal scene in such a short span, its hard to imagine they weren't already featured in Rock Band 4. I mean, we've got heavier acts like Opeth and Nevermore, but not Ghost? That blasphemy is about to be r...
