Intense rhythm game Thumper coming to iOS

Thumper is a special game, one I'm happy to see come to any and all platforms that make sense. The rhythm title is heading to iOS next with Thumper: Pocket Edition on January 24, 2018. Looking at the initial screenshots, I think this shoul...

Steamed Hams is my jam

I've seen some weird custom creations when it comes to rhythm games, but this one really made me smile. Found on expnand banana's YouTube, this custom song for Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock deals with the classic skit featuring ...


Review: Super Beat Sports

Beat Sports came and went with few people even having a chance to play it. When it released, it was considered one of the better games on Apple TV, a platform that isn't exactly famous for its games. The Nintendo Switch is giving the rhythm...


Import Review: Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum Session!

The Taiko no Tatsujin ("Taiko Drum Master") rhythm game series has been around for a while. Since its first entry on PS2, there have been over a dozen of these things on a variety of systems, on top of successful arcade machines. And yet, f...


Invector will feature the beats of AVICII

Is anyone familiar with Invector? I can't say I've heard of it until today, but apparently it was announced two years ago at the Paris Games Week conference. Whether or not that is true, we got a quick look at the rhythm game towards the ta...


Even the Wii is getting more support than the Wii U in 2017

A lot of people are annoyed that I continuously pour one out for the Wii U (I had to swap to soda because I'm all out of beer), but this situation just drives it home how influential the original Wii really was. Although it was announced in...


The Nintendo Switch eShop has a discount for Thumper

Nintendo, unlike it's contemporary competitors, isn't too keen on offering sales. This statement applies doubly to the eShop, which tends to overcharge customers as is, and only offer decent sales on Capcom titles most of the time. Thankful...

[LaTerry straps on his dancing shoes, and gives us a peek into his evolution from a total stiff to a rhythm-obsessed fanatic! This stuff is pure, unadulterated fun. Resistance is futile. I see that head bobbing. Don’t stop shakin&rsqu...


Crypt of the NecroDancer coming to Nintendo Switch

What a day it's been to be a Switch owner. So many great games and ports have been announced in the last 24 hours, and the beat goes on with the news that rhythm-action dungeon crawler Crypt of the NecroDancer is headed for Nintendo's hip d...


Random time: Beep beep like a sheep in Just Dance 2018

When you hear the name Just Dance, you think of some of the hottest names in the music industry. The artists that radio stations play on loop all day every day. The likes of Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars, Shakira, Katy Perry, and TomSka. Oh ye...


Hell yeah, Rez Infinite is now on PC

I've already bought Rez a few times before. What's one more purchase? Rez Infinite has come to PC today ($20) with support for HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, and "unrestricted resolution and up to double the texture resolution of any previous versi...


Persona 3 and 5 dancing games will not have a story mode

If you are like me and put off Persona 4: Dancing All Night until completing Persona 4 to avoid spoilers, you won't have to worry about that in Persona 3: Dancing Moon Night and Persona 5: Dancing Star Night as the Story Mode...


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...
