The world's largest video game publisher pulled the plug on "Guitar Hero" on Wednesday. What happened?
A look back at games that might have cracked my top 10 games of 2010, had I played them more or under different circumstances.
A look at titles worth picking up for whatever types of gamers might be on your holiday shopping list.
"Power Gig: Rise of the SixString" aims to take on Activision's "Guitar Hero" and MTV's "Rock Band," but it's got a steep mountain to climb.
During a recent opportunity to play "Rock Band 3," I got to sing on a stage in front of a roomful of people, plus struggle on keyboards as a cameraman filmed me. No wonder bands lip sync during video shoots. It's nerve-wracking stuff.
This week's What I Played features a few mini-previews for upcoming games "Dead Space: Ignition," "Shank" and "Spare Parts."
If you're even a slightly occasional reader of this blog, you've probably noticed that there are a lot of classics I haven't played. Here's a quick explanation of why, as well as why I think it's important you know.
With "Rock Band 3" set to release soon and only a handful of tracks announced thus far, it's time to take a look at what we'd like to see in the game. These 10 tracks all feature either keyboards or vocal harmonies, two features this game has that "Rock Band 2" didn't. One of the 10 is brutally difficult and would give players of the new "pro" mode a run for their money.
"Rock Band 3's" incorporation of keyboards and vocal harmonies, plus a robust new "pro" mode that makes gameplay more like playing a real-life instrument, should give the slumbering music genre of games a much needed shot in the arm.
If you felt cheated and robbed my quick-and-dirty recap of Tuesday at E3, go pee, wash your hands and make yourself a snack. Here's an exhaustive accounting of nearly everything I saw and did on Wednesday at the video game industry's annual confab in L.A. I'll be posting more detailed stuff on a lot of these games in the days and weeks to come, but I wanted to get this out there while it's still fresh in my mind.
