The Week In Games: Hold On To Your Vocals

Illustration for article titled The Week In Games: Hold On To Your Vocals

The latest Hatsune Miku game hits the West this week along with a handful (literally) of other games. Prepare your ears for the tones of the future and some beats that will blow your mind.


For those unacquainted with the Hatsune series, like me, they are ports of arcade rhythm games that star a Vocaloid whose voice was apparently created by Yamaha that company famous for motorcycles and making keyboards that sit stuffed in people’s closets after they decided that maybe learning the piano just wasn’t for them.

No matter though, because if West World is any indication, people playing pianos will soon be a thing of the past.

So many good PS4 games this month(and the next few) but I cannot wait for Gravity Rush 2. Love the game mechanic of falling towards your destination.
