REVIEWS Read Only Memories Review
The Kickstarter-funded text-based adventure game blows away most AAA titles with smart writing, engaging characters, and more style than you can fit on an NES cartridge.

Windows 10 Review for Dummies

After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...


Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call Is A Splendid Encore (TGS Hands-On)

Posted on Thursday, September 26 @ 01:08:57 PST by Heath_Hindman

In a world of overpriced upgrades and shithead DLC tactics, the 3DS-exclusive Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call stands out as an enhanced edition that actually deserves some hype.

I skipped the original Theatrhythm because I'm just not that big into touchscreen gaming, and screen taps were the only control method in that game. Curtain Call adds what really should have been in the original all along in the ability to use buttons. I found particular effectiveness in using the buttons with one hand and tapping the screen with the other, and the game felt so much more playable than ever before. Even the airship stages, which ramp up the difficulty by having the notes approach on a curve, felt much more natural and fun.

This is no simple re-release with the DLC packed in. While it does include all content from the first Theatrhythm as well as its downloadable content, it also adds new characters and then packs in 90 completely new songs. Highlights include brand new additions from very recent games like Lightning Returns, Final Fantasy XIV, and Type-0.

Versus mode was unfortunately not available in the Tokyo Game Show demo, but I could already see that Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call is worth the attention of anyone who likes both music games and the Final Fantasy series. It'll come out in the Spring of 2014 in Japan, and probably later in North America. Square Enix has yet to make any formal announcement to that end, however.
