Mad Fellows Games is indeed mad for creating a rhythm action game which in part looks exactly like Rez. That is until you get into a tunnel, and it oozes the personality of Audiosurf.

Aaero is neither of these games -- actually, it's both of them...but better.

During both EGX 2015, and EGX 2016 I played Aaero, and it appeared in my games of the show for 2015, as well as Emma Spalding's for 2016.With all the sounds of music I hate, Aaero is the single most interesting game I've seen in the past few years -- other than Superhot, which is the most innovative shooter I've played in a long time.

Following the music line in this game makes you feel like you are playing the music. (Or in the case of vocal tracks singing the song.) I suspect it's a response to the act of following the line, the physical sensation of moving the stick, and the way you have to bob of weave throw the track that gives the feeling. I don't even like the music in Aaero, but the setting of the game is so engaging that I simply don't care.

All in all, it works perfectly. And I cannot wait for Aaero to come out.

While there is no release date for Aaero as of yet, it has gone into certification with Microsoft. So it won't be long until we have it in our hands. But for now, I will leave you with the sounds of Aaero:

What do you think? Are you as intrigued with this rhythm game as I am? Let me know down in the comments!

Hideo Kojima Reveals New Details About "Death Stranding" Wed, 14 Sep 2016 05:30:20 -0400 Greyson Ditzler

Hideo Kojima revealed new details about the enigmatic project he is working on with PlayStation, Death Stranding, earlier this week. While he did answer some questions raised by the game's bizarre cinematic trailer, he also raised a few new ones at the same time, as Kojima is sometimes known to do. 

Kojima announced at this year's Tokyo Game that Death Stranding will be an open-world action game framed by a story akin to those he is known for in his other titles. Unfortunately, there was still no word on an official release date.

Although he also briefly discussed the game's online play, although in a manner that has evidently confused some people, saying:

"At the end of the day I want to offer an action game where people get connected with different elements, not just clubs,".

Visual representation of what Kojima hopes to accomplish with online play. 

While his metaphorical statements regarding the gameplay weren't very straightforward, it seems that Kojima is trying to explain that the online will be both cooperative and competitive, given his reference to ropes and sticks.

Hideo Kojima is on of the most well-known names in the entire gaming industry, being chiefly responsible for the genre-defining and boundary-pushing Metal Gear Solid series. Death Stranding will be the first game that both he and his studio, Kojima Productions, will have made since his separation from Konami.

If you're interested in Death Stranding, you can look at the game's mystifying reveal trailer below, and join in on the confusion. (Although we have some ideas on what might be going on.)

More E3 2015 News From Bethesda and Rare Tue, 05 May 2015 05:53:00 -0400 Charly Mottet

E3 2015 is coming up fast, a little more than a month away now (June 16th to June 18th). And this year's edition counts several press conferences, including Bethesda's very first ever at E3.  

Bethesda revealed here their E3 program. From what we can see on their planning, we will be getting information about three new games (an RPG, a free-to-play and an action game), as well as an unknown information marked down as "publication". 

The action game and the free-to-play are shown to be released on next-gen consoles (Xbox One and PlayStation 4), PC and mobile platforms. The RPG will be facing the same fate, but it will also be coming out on older generations (Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3). 

No game titles are shown, only clues. In consequence, only wild guesses can be made for these upcoming announcements. Could we be expecting The Elder Scrolls VI: Argonia or Fallout 4? Possibly Doom 4? Dishonored 2? Questions only to be answered during their conference on June 14th (7pm PT / 10pm ET). 

Rare is showing a new game

Twitter announcement from Simon Woodroffe, creative director, showed that a new project would be talked about during E3 2015 from Rare

"@leflus E3 will tell the world what Gregg Mayles new project is about."

Gregg Mayles, game designer, worked on Donkey Kong, Banjo-Tooie, Star Fox Adventures, Viva Piñata and a few others. We will have to wait for E3 to find out more about this game, but for now, all we know is that it promises to be a very fun game, says Mayles.
