VR has come a long way in the past few years. I had just been handed my biweekly paycheck at the digital advertising agency where I was still employed out of college. Sitting there in that office, staring at that paycheck, the only thought I had in my head was...
Rhythm Defender in practice feels a lot more like Rhythm Attacker because you’re not defending so much as punching to the beat. The title made me think of Audioshield, which I found to be less intense than some of my favorite rhythm experiences. The game ups the difficulty and puts...
