Fantasia: Music Evolved Review

Since the very beginning of music games, players have wanted to take control of the music in rhythm games rather than just playing along side of it. Games like DJ Hero and Rock Band provide very minimum control and stuff like Wii Music feel more like noise toys than an actual game.  Harmonix and Disney has finally struck a balance of customized music with gameplay in Fantasia: Music Evolved.

SDCC 2013 – Xbox on the Floor

During San Diego Comic Con, we got a taste of what Xbox had to offer for the upcoming seasons in the Xbox Comic-Con Media Showcase. Titles for both the Xbox One and the 360 were on the floor to either view or play. Some titles are still in Alpha, but the majority (if not all) are slated to release by the end of the year. These titles included Battlefield 4, Project Spark, Fantasia, Ryse: Son of Rome...

Rock Band Blitz Review

It seems like only yesterday Rock Band changed the way we viewed music games. No longer were they a solo exercise of challenge and an ever continuing struggle for the next higher score. The music game became something social, to be enjoyed with friends at a party.

This Week in Gaming – E3 Edition (Week Ending 6/3/12)

This week I think shall refrain from the regular gaming news recap and just go straight into the E3 links you need to know.

Over the years that has changed a bit, with other conferences becoming the spotlight for gaming announcements but E3 remains and with it comes the annual...

In case you missed it, here’s this week in gaming (Week ending 4/20/12)

In the week that ended with bad jokes about 420, it was pretty uneventful. A few games were announced for 2013. And betas were opened for all the world to see. We also got a brief walkthrough of Pax East from our very own Steph, who was featured on Xplay! So, let’s look at the week that was, in case you missed it!
