The Action Points Podcast! Episode 109 – Rhythm Games are Hard

In this episode:

This is an odd one. There’s a lot of puerile talk and sniggering, but hopefully we can make it through together. We talk about hard, pounding beats in various rhythm games that we love. Also, Aaron gives us his impression of The Gallerist and Level Up, Evan’s been playing Guitar Hero Live, and Dan’s been playing through Tales from the Borderlands.

  1. You talked about rhythm games without talking Rhythm Heaven.

    🌧 Try again 💦

    Also there’s Gunpey (DS), which is more a puzzle game with a little music integration. It has its own electronic music maker in there, too.
