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...

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...

Unsettling rhythm game Thumper hits PC, PS4 this October

With Rez Infinite and now Thumper releasing on October 13, 2016, we'll be able to go to rhythm heaven and rhythm hell on the same day. The latter game (PS4, PlayStation VR, PC) sends you, playing as a so-called "space beetle," hurtling dow...
