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...

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 ...

Swing, Swing on over to Rock Band 4 for some 'classic' DLC

Have you forgotten about the new year yet? Well, Harmonix certainly hasn't as they've announced a slew of downloadable songs to kick off 2017. Along with some new hits come a few "classic" songs from previous games. While that is super neat...

Review: Rock Band Wired Legacy Adapter

I bought an Xbox One for one single reason: to play Rock Band 4. I've spent hundreds, if not thousands of hours in the Rock Band franchise. Thing is, about 90% percent of that time was on the drums. I was drumming so much that I eventu...

Things are about to get complicated for Rock Band 4

Do you not like my girlfriend? Do you think I need a new one? Well, for your information prospective reader, I don't even have a girlfriend. Oh, I made myself sad. Anyway, Rock Band 4 is getting a trio of songs from everyone's favorite faux...

Review: Rock Band Rivals

Ever since the announcement of Rock Band 4, Harmonix has held steady in its assertion that we shouldn't expect Rock Band 5 in a few years' time. Rock Band 4 is a platform now, not a sequel that's meant to lead to yet another seque...

Review: Harmonix Music VR

Brett said pretty much everything I could possibly say about the lost art of just "listening to music." Singles have increasingly dominated the industry, and you'd be hard pressed to get someone to name several tracks off of any given major...
