Look, if you’re not a fan of rhythm games, then you might as well stop reading now. But then you’ll miss out on what could possibly be described as the gateway drug to rhythm games. If this intrigues you in even the slightest, come feel the beat with me as I review Rhythm Paradise Megamix for the Nintendo 3DS.
Kirby: Triple Deluxe had a few small mini-games built into it, one of which was Dedede’s Drum Dash, a rhythm platform mini game that featured the spheniscidaean monarch. The mini-game has a new release as a standalone, slightly expanded version. I clatter across the kettles, traipse up the tomtoms, and sidle around the snares to review this game.
Do you like your games hard? Like…REALLY hard? Oh good, because have I got a doozy for you: Cosmophony for the Wii U releases this week, and it’s the kind of game that’s going to require a lot of dedication from you.
Just when we thought the music genre of video games was a dying breed, the folks at Harmonix come up with a way to shake things up. Cue Rock Band Blitz, a rhythm game that doesn’t require a whole new set of peripheral plastic instruments. Let’s rock this review!
Fitness games are an awesome way to combine something I don’t like (exercise) with the one thing I do (video gaming). I’d originally played the first Zumba Fitness game when it appeared for Kinect, and although I enjoyed it, I found it a tad too difficult for a complete Zumba n00b. I was slightly wary, then, when I heard about the new game in the series, titled Zumba Fitness Rush, but I’m nothing if not a sucker for dance and rhythm games, so I took it for a whirl around the living room floor to check out its moves.
Movie tie-ins are a dime a dozen, and every popular film gets a dumpster-load of merchandise to go with it. So, if you already have your Happy Feet Two™ lunch box, juice bottle, poster, book tie-in, promo plushies, and McDonald’s™ toy, and you’re still wondering what to spend your tie-in budget on, there’s also Happy Feet Two The Video Game, reviewed after the bit that says “Continue Reading”.

Without further ado, here is Marko’s review of Rock Band 2 for the Xbox 360.
After Rock Band 2 finally arrived on our shores most of the rhythm game nuts couldn’t wait to get their hands on it. Let me tell you…it was worth the wait. Harmonix did an absolutely brilliant job at making Rock Band the most immersive ‘Rock simulator’ that money can buy.
Let me just get right to the juicy part and just say that the song library is just spectacular. It includes everything from Punk rock to Heavy metal and it will satisfy all ages, young and old. Your dad will probably love some songs from the past or your best buddy will like all the famous nu-metal bands that appear in this game. Songs include some of the best artists from all generations such as The Who, System of a Down, Disturbed, AC/DC, Foo Fighters, Judas Priests, and Metallica just to name a few. The feature that takes the cake is the DLC (downloadable content). It’s just packed with great songs. Some legendary songs and some songs that are just awesome to play at a party.
