  • Blog Post: Big Guns, Big Air, Big Riffs: A Look Back at Neversoft (1994-2014)

    Yesterday Neversoft, which had once been Activision's premier in-house development studio, was officially dissolved and absorbed into Call of Duty developer Infinity Ward. In tribute, we look back at the studio's auspicious 20-year history. Now that the Neversoft story is officially done, we... More
  • Blog Post: Opinion: Guitar Hero’s True Legacy

    Growing up in small-town Alabama, country music regularly came blaring out of jacked-up pick-up trucks in the high school parking lot. Music that wasn’t “current” or “mainstream” didn’t get much air time. This was fine by me. In junior high and the early years of high... More
  • Blog Post: What's The Future For The Last Generation's Big Franchises?

    As this past generation of home consoles prepares to ride off into the sunset, we thought it was an appropriate time to look back at new franchises that defined the past nine years in console gaming – and predict how likely it is they will continue in the future. [Note: this list is in alphabetical... More
  • Blog Post: Which Guitar Game Should You Play?

    We didn’t review two of this year’s music games, as both projects have moved from classic game experiences to something more akin to music education software. Nonetheless, both BandFuse: Rock Legends and Rocksmith 2014 are fascinating projects, especially if you’ve been excited about... More
  • Blog Post: Time Sinks – Rock Band

    Green Grass and High Tides. If those words send a chill through you, then at some point we shared a great trial – beating Rock Band's guitar career on Expert, and confronting the nearly ten-minute long odyssey that was The Outlaws' 1975 song by that name. Even if you did manage to cross... More
  • Blog Post: How’d Harmonix Do That? A Look At Rock Band's DLC

    A few days ago, Harmonix pulled the plug on its internally developed Rock Band DLC. Don McLean’s “American Pie” broke the 281-week streak of content for the game, an impressive figure by any measure. Just because they managed to pull it off, don’t assume it was easy. I wrote a... More
  • Blog Post: DJ Hero Deserved Better

    Freestyle Games' DJ Hero series had just what the music genre needed: unique gameplay, a cool turntable peripheral, and an infusion of fresh beats from the worlds of dance music and hip-hop. Unfortunately, it was doomed by circumstance and a glut of guitar games. When the original DJ Hero released... More
  • Blog Post: Video Games' Greatest Rivalries

    Sometimes video game franchises are kind of similar. It can’t be avoided. Sometimes, those games inspire conflict and people take sides. Sometimes, a feature is written that arbitrarily decides a winner. It could be a matter of sales, a clear case of objective quality, or my own personable preference... More
  • Blog Post: The Past And Future Of Rock Band DLC

    We dig deep with Harmonix's Chris Rigopulos to find out about unannounced DLC artists, how many songs have been downloaded in Rock Band's history, and why we won't see Rock Band 4 in 2011. Harmonix has seen a lot of interesting shake-ups in the last year. Between their separation from MTV... More
  • Blog Post: Games With Great Post-Release Support

    Sequels are a dominant force in video games. Publishers want to create blockbuster franchises that reliably rake in cash, and that means sequels. In the rush to pump out new games, sometimes developers forget people are still playing their previous titles. That’s why we appreciate when game makers... More
  • Blog Post: Our 25 Most Anticipated Games Of The Rest Of 2010

    All things considered, 2010 hasn’t been a terrible summer for gamers. We’ve had one or two really outstanding titles ( sup, StarCraft II ), a steady stream of solid releases, and only a handful of weeks that were full-on new game droughts. Even with such an excellent first half of the year... More
