#960 Rhythm Heaven

Tags: , , , , ,

970th played so far Genre: Music Platform: DS Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Nintendo SPD/TNX Music Recordings Publisher: Nintendo It feels like I’ve always mentally divided music games between instrument-based rhythm games and other rhythm games – possibly with a handful that don’t go either way, like how Singstar technically isn’t. That last instrument based […]

935th played so far Genre: Music Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2001 Developer: Harmonix Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment I think I can safely say that I’ve explored Harmonix’ library in reverse – first the Rock Band franchise, then early Guitar Hero, recently¬†Amplitude and now it’s time for their very first game. I’ve seen how […]

905th played so far Genre: Music/Management Simulation Platform: Playstation Portable Year of Release: 2007 Developer: Pyramid/Japan Studio Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment Pon-Pon-Pata-Pon, Pata-Pata-Pata-Pon. The two main phrases (attack and move,¬† in that order) of this game have been stuck in my head for years, ever since I started this game while on holiday in Naples […]

884th played so far Genre: Music Platform: Various Year of Release: 2008 Developer: Neversoft Publisher: Activision As I’m approaching the 900 mark – a big milestone that I’m still amazed I’m getting this close to – I’m getting to a lot of penultimates and this is one – for Guitar Hero: World Tour I’m going […]

#538 Amplitude

865th played so far Genre: Music Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2003 Developer: Harmonix Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment I’m playing Amplitude a bit out of order – I should probably be playing Frequency first, but it’s one of those thigns where it didn’t work out that way today. I guess it makes sense to […]

#555 Mojib Ribbon

830th played so far Genre: Music Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2003 Developer: NanaOn-Sha, Ltd. Publisher: SCEI I feel like Vib-Ribbon was one of the weirder rhythm game. There’s still the track you come down, but the presentation was unique and made it both more interesting and more difficult. Its sequel, Mojb Ribbon, seems […]

#930 Guitar Hero: Metallica

816th played so far Genre: Music Platform: Various Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Neversoft Publisher: Activision To be honest, at this point I feel like I need to get out the plastic instruments about once a year to cover all of the Guitar Hero and Rock Band game. The first Rock Band game, the most […]

763rd played so far Genre: Music Platform: Various Year of Release: 2007 Developer: Harmonix Publisher: MTV Games Every once in a while I have to bring out the plastic instruments and play one of these music games. I want to spread them out (if only to keep my notes and write up clear) but there’s […]

#419 Samba de Amigo

724th played so far Genre: Music Platform: Dreamcast Year of Release: 1999 Developer: Sonic Team Publisher: Sega The Dreamcast era really was one for weird peripherals. We saw this with Sega Bass Fishing (although I avoided it there by playing the PC version) and a few years later with the massive setup that came with […]

#472 Gitaroo Man

Tags: , , , , ,

713th played so far Genre: Music Platform: Playstation 2 Year of Release: 2001 Developer: Koei/iNis Publisher: Koei/THQ Gitaroo Man is a rhythm game that, from its cover, I always peg as a bit of a RPG game. What the cover doesn’t look like is how the game seems to be pegged – one where you […]
