Disney Fantasia Music Evolved Review

‘Fantasia: Music Evolved’ review: New groove

‘Fantasia: Music Evolved’ review: New groove

Releasing an original rhythm game in 2014 is a bold move; the age of the plastic peripheral has passed, and rhythm games are reliant on either controllers or cameras to work. Developers have to understand and account for the limitations of those accessories, but rather than concede to the shifting sands, Harmonix took the evolution of the genre in stride with Dance Central, its third consecutive hit series and the first to prominently feature the Kinect.

Now the team faces the challenge of moving into the new generation with a fresh, licensed property. So how did it fare? More →

Preview: ‘Disney Fantasia: Music Evolved’ revives a fading genre

After Rock Band hit its peak, the dance pads and plastic instruments of the music game genre appeared to be fading away for good. It was a fad that couldn’t quite sustain itself, so the leader in the genre, Harmonix, found a way to recreate music gaming without the expensive peripherals: Kinect. Dance Central might still be one of the Kinect’s only killer apps, and now the team is taking the concept and mashing it together with Disney’s classic film Fantasia. It might sound like an odd pairing, but the results are fascinating. More →

Xbox One’s big June update brings highly anticipated new features

The highly anticipated Xbox One June update is here, Microsoft announced, bringing several interesting features to users, including external storage support and better access to apps. Users will now be able to connect their external hard drives to the console in order to supplement the limited (for some) storage available on the device, and access more games and media files. The company says that USB 3.0-ready hard drives that have at least 256GB of storage will be compatible with the Xbox One, which will recognize such an external drive as the default storage option for future downloads once it’s configured. Users will be able to connect up to two external drives simultaneously. More →
