Wandersong is music to my ears

Having now gone to my first E3 and first PAX as a member of Destructoid, I'm not sure if I'll ever go to either of these events again if I'm not a member of the press. It spoils a person to get almost instant access to any game they want, b...

Review: Wailing Heights

Growing up, I didn't really play a whole lot of adventure or point and click games. For starters, I didn't have a PC and there wasn't a ton really available for consoles. And compared to stuff like Sonic the Hedgehog or NBA Jam, adventure g...

There’s nothing else out there quite like this game. Floor Kids attempts to meld the free-flowing body squirming of breakdancing with the much-loved rhythm genre, succeeding surprisingly well. It’s a project created by an artist...

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...
