REVIEWS Fantasia: Music Evolved Review
Harmonix's rhythm game based on the Sorceror's Apprentice provided a fun experience of arm-wavy controlling goodness. It also made me want to play Rock Band again.

The United States government has moved one step closer to recognizing gaming as a legitimate sport, as it has begun issuing visas to international League of Legends players by deeming them "professional athletes."

"The United States government recognizes League of Legends pro players as professional athletes, and awards visas to essentially work in the United States under that title," Riot Games eSports manager Nick Allen told GameSpot. He went on to say how it's "groundbreaking for eSports," making international competitions "a much easier process, because [players] are actually recognized by the government.
