Harmonix, the fine folks who brought us some of our favorite rhythm games over the years, has a brand new title available on the Nintendo Switch. A cute family friendly rhythm game that brings the rhythm genre to its basics; a fun and easy one to hop into that the whole family can enjoy.
Hasbro today announced the September 2017 global launch of DROPMIX™, an all-new dynamic and fast-paced music mixing game. Developed in collaboration with legendary and award-winning video game developer Harmonix Music Systems, Inc., creators of Rock Band and Dance Central, DROPMIX uses cutting-edge technology that empowers players to create unique mixes of songs by playing cards on a game board connected to a mobile app.
After a very successful Kickstarter campaign last year, Harmonix has finally delivered on their new version of Amplitude. Unlike it’s plastic instrumented siblings, Amplitude just requires you and a Dualshock 4 to make sweet sweet dance/techno/electronica together (full disclosure I’m no good at naming music genres).
Harmonix is pleased to reveal details of its plan to support and expand Rock Band 4 as an ongoing live service. The program officially kicks off with its first major feature update on December 8th for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
Rock Band 4 is my first time playing a game in the plastics instruments genre. I’ve watched at the periphery but just never had a chance to play these games because I was never in a living situation that could accommodate big and loud plastic instruments. But now that I live in my own house, I was finally able to play a Rock Band game. In preparation for this review, I also purchased Rock Band 1-3 as well as Rock Band: Beatles to be able to play them and have some context about the series.
