The first game from Realta Entertainment takes players from faking their way to greatness on plastic instruments to making real music on their own electric guitar, bass guitar, vocals and even an acoustic guitar. The basic idea is to sprinkle elements that made Rock Band so much fun over an open world flexible music tutorial system. This… Read More »

Wrestlemania 28 featured a match between two men that not even the robust WWE 2K14 CAW can match the power of –  Triple H and The Undertaker. The match was promoted as “The end of an era.” It was a signifier that these two titans of the ring were the last of their kind from… Read More »

This week, PlayStation Plus subscribers are being treated to Dyad being added to the Instant Game Collection. The Tempest inspired game is, in all honesty, fairly difficult to describe. You travel through a series of pipes, “hooking” onto various items, pulling yourself through each level. What really sets Dyad apart from other titles, though, is the extremely… Read More »

Nintendo is ready to party all over again and this time it’s an island party. The island party theme is a fun idea but references to the theme throughout the game don’t really extend beyond some boards having island shaped locations to hop between on the way to the end. This party can be played… Read More »
