Review: Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum Session!

It's hard being the drummer. Not only do you generally sit at the back of the stage, avoiding the spotlight and hidden behind a mass of metal, but you are, essentially, the key to the whole performance remaining tight. A guitarist can blow ...

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...

Review: Just Shapes & Beats

Review: Floor Kids

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...

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...

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...
