Matthew and Evan nod their heads to the sweet, sweet tunes of microtransactions.
The library for good Kinect titles is not a well that runs very deep. Luckily, Harmonix has a good grip on how to work with the Kinect, and more importantly, how to make games that are fun. I recently got down with my bad self and (embarrassingly) danced the night away with Harmonix’s latest game, Dance Central 3.
There was a time long ago, before Rock Band and Dance Central, even before Guitar Hero, when rookie developer Harmonix came out of the gate swinging with FreQuency; a unique and interesting foray into the largely niche rhythm genre. That was 2001. Now it’s 2012, and Harmonix has released Rock Band Blitz, a downloadable game in the style of their earliest work. Is there a place in today’s video game climate for this return to rhythm’s roots?
