PSA: It's the last day to export your Rock Band 3 songs

Here's some housekeeping that will probably fall on deaf ears. Any committed Rock Band player took care of it long ago. Anyone who hasn't probably won't care enough to rush this through in the coming hours. Alas, here goes anyway: It's...

Review: Fuser

Harmonix is a fascinating case study of a studio. What was once the "Frequency/Amplitude" developer (this is how I'll always remember them) eventually made their mark on gaming with the Guitar Heroes series, followed by Rock Band. It's iron...

Supermassive and Harmonix are making Stadia-exclusive games

One of the many knocks against Stadia thus far is that it doesn't have any exclusives worth getting worked up over. That might be changing as Google has signed on two developers who have cult followings. Both Supermassive Games and Harmonix...

Rock Band creator Harmonix is cooking up a new rhythm game for virtual reality players called Audica and it's brimming with potential. Using a pair of blasters, you'll shoot, smash, and paint color-coded targets to the beat of the music. I ...

Rock Band 4 celebrates its third birthday with track skins

Rock Band 4 released three years ago as of October 6, and Harmonix is celebrating in style by adding some new style. Today, there's an update that introduces track skins -- a little quality of life thing that switches up the visuals wh...

Never before seen game secrets revealed

These days, there are just two kinds of secrets in video games: the ones that you can uncover in a few minutes using Google, and the kind that remain totally anonymous. The internet has erased many of the world's mysteries, and the "unconf...

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...

Review: DropMix

When I found out that Harmonix was making a music-themed board game, I was all in. I am a gigantic fan of the Rock Band series (I bought an Xbox One specifically for Rock Band 4), and eat up as many music-heavy games that I can. After seein...

Rock Band has a new season pass subscription model for DLC

About a year ago, Rock Band leaned into the tendencies of its competitive players. The Rock Band Rivals expansion focused mostly on getting people to form crews, and then pitting those crews against one another in pursuit of high ...

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...

Review: Rock Band VR

I wasn't really sure what to expect when heading into Rock Band VR. I love the series, so more of it is always a good thing, but I knew this was something completely different. Perhaps that is the best way to describe it: something differen...

Thumper on Switch wore me out

[Header Screenshot via Chillybilly's Twitter] When Rez first came out in 2002, I learned a new word from its marketing campaign: Synesthesia. Basically, it means that one of your senses is being triggered by something it normally wouldn't, ...

Harmonix's next project is DropMix, a physical card game

The next title from Harmonix won't be anything similar to what we know the music-focused studio for. It's not another spin on Rock Band or anything else resembling note-matching perfection. It's not even really a video game. It's ...
