K-Pop idol, BoA, has a video game too, it’s probably better than Rain’s

By Spencer . January 24, 2008 . 11:30am

In my eyes, Rain’s PSP game looks unappealing even though Inis has a hand in the project. To be fair, I openly admit I’m not a megafan curious about Rain’s favorite food. I do, occasionally, listen to BoA and I discovered her PC game while wandering in Youngsan.   I didn’t buy BoA’s game either, […]

Ask a gamer what makes a great game, and the first answer you'll most likely get will almost undoubtedly be either graphics or gameplay. But one very important and oft overlooked part of what makes a game great is the soundtrack. The music in a video game can touch us, make us scared, make us […]

Recreating video game music in Mario Paint

By Spencer . June 12, 2007 . 1:49pm

Ahh… Mario Paint one of my most treasured games. I’ve got the cart and a broken, useless Super Nintendo mouse. I played around with the music editor, but I never arranged a masterpiece even close to this take on Dr. Wily’s theme from Mega Man 2. The work is incredible and the well timed cat […]

Agetec aims to educate with a music/rhythm game

By Spencer . June 1, 2007 . 2:56pm

  You’re probably not going to learn how to dance from playing Dance Dance Revolution and you’re definitely not going to become a DJ from playing Beatmania. You might be great on the beat box with lightning fast hands from playing with all seven keys, but Beatmania is much as DJ simulator as Ouendan is. […]

Nodame Cantabile DS: Ouendan meets Mozart

By Richard . May 4, 2007 . 11:25am

Since Ouendan proved to be mighty fun on the DS, I was extremely curious when I heard about Nodame Cantabile, another Ouendan-like rhythm game with classical music. While the game is based on the Nodame Cantabile manga series, previous knowledge of the story is not necessary to enjoy the game. You play as a journalist […]

Taiko no Tatsujin heading to the Nintendo DS

By Spencer . April 25, 2007 . 12:48pm

Buzz around a new Taiko no Tatsujin game sprung up from a translated song list over at Game|Life. There are some interesting songs on the list like “Natsumatsuri”, which is probably a cover of the fast paced J-pop song performed by Whiteberry. Like other Taiko no Tatsujin games the DS title adds in classical music […]

Love for Everlasting Love

By Spencer . April 13, 2007 . 3:06pm

One of the more creative games I’ve got my hands on is a homebrew Nintendo DS game called Everlasting Love. The concept is deceptively simple guide a monkey from the start of the level to the end only by jumping, no walking. Things get tricky because the monkey jumps to the beat of the song […]
