PLAY! Symphony Concert Series Launches World Tour
news | 11/10/05 | George Holomshek
It seems like everytime we turn around these days, some symphony is cashing in on videogames. Who knew those murder simulators would also become music appreciation stimulators? Then again, what better medium to allow composers dozens of hours of time to work with: It\'s like the ultimate symphonic challenge. The recently announced PLAY! tour will bring some more contemporary game music to the orchestra pit, as opposed to other recent symphonic adaptations of classic videogame music. Check the link to tour info and catch it if it\'s coming near you.

The Mario Opera
news | 10/09/05 | Aaron Stanton
We here at GamesFirst are always fans of game enthusiasts showing their love in new and creative ways. You see fan art and fan fiction, but have you ever imagined there would be fan opera? Jonathan Mann has created a Mario Opera, and quite frankly the musical performances aren\'t bad; in fact, they\'re indicative of some serious musical talent implemented in a sometimes - but not always - cheesy way. Whether or not Mario is the place to show off that talent might be in question, though. Our advice is to not bother with the preview, but instead take a moment to listen to the songs themselves. Our personal favorite? The Lizard Wizard.

Brand New Perfect Dark Zero Screen, Music, Bio
game: Perfect Dark Zero
news | 09/30/05 | Shawn Rider
Perfect Dark Zero has so far been one of the most enigmatic Xbox 360 launch titles. After showing us glimpses of 50 player multiplayer on their MTV Xbox 360 unveiling, we expected to see PDZ at E3. But it wasn\'t there. It was at Tokyo Game Show, and we recently posted some links to some shakey-cam footage of PDZ gameplay which has us all debating the relative greatness potential for the game. Details are still slow to come out about Perfect Dark Zero, but we have one screen and an MP3 of one of the music tracks from the game to pass on.

Guitar Hero Screens and News
game: Guitar Hero
news | 09/05/05 | Shawn Rider
Sometimes we just nod our head and say, \"Oh yeah! This ROCKS!\" Other times we shake our head and say, \"No, no! Don\'t stop the ROCKIN\'!\" And still other times we get a headache and have to stop all the headbanging in favor of some hardcore guitar rocking action, which is why we\'re keeping an eye on Guitar Hero, set the come out this Fall for PlayStation 2.

E3 2005: Ministry of Sound StikAx
game: E3 2005: Ministry of Sound StikAx
preview | 05/22/05 | Shawn Rider
One of the best things at E3 wasn't even a game. "Wha?!?" you say, in your best Jon Stewart, "B-b-but E3 is about games?!?" True dat. So if we must justify it, let's put the Ministry of Sound StikAx in the category of "performative play." Using a unique hardware controller up to two people can collaborate to mix audio and video on the fly. It's a revolution for VJs and DJs, and it's real, real fun.

A 2nd (and better) Xbox 360 Unveiling
Articles Archive | 05/13/05 | Aaron Stanton
The MTV Xbox 360 unveiling that took place last night was a bit of a let-down for most of us here at GamesFirst. The show was catchy, with lots of scene cuts, music, and cheering crowds, but revealed almost nothing about the actual system. While it confirmed a few rumors that have been floating around, it didn't do much else, and every picture of the system came and went too fast to get a good look. There's another Xbox 360 unveiling video though, and it's available on the web. This second video is well put together and offers a better look at the actual system.

Lumines
game: Lumines
review | 04/14/05 | Shawn Rider
Lumines is the hipster puzzle game for the PSP that's got everyone tripping out on rave-tastic visuals and bumping techno beats. But Shawn is here to say that for all those non-raver, techno-hating gamers out there, Lumines is still a dang fun puzzle game. And you can still trip out on the graphics without dressing like a candy bar.

P2P For the Gaming Industry
Articles Archive | 02/18/05 |
Since P2P has become ubiquitous on the Internet, it has mostly been associated with game, movie and music piracy, which has somewhat prevented P2P technologies from being used to their full potential to enhance your gaming experience. Our own Wayne Chang, who is also CEO of AceGain and ByteSwarm, which provide download functionality for GF!, takes a look at the promise of P2P technologies, focusing on ByteSwarm, the technology he knows best, as an example of potential benefits we could see from safe, secure P2P networks.

Taiko Drum Master
game: Taiko Drum Master
review | 11/21/04 | Eric Qualls
Taiko Drum Master comes with a special drum controller that you have to beat in time with onscreen icons. How can a game that comes with a drum not be fun? Fans of music and rhythm games are in for a treat. And kids bent on really ticking off the 'rents. And fans of the ancient art of taiko drumming. Or, maybe not...

Technic Beat
game: Technic Beat
review | 11/20/04 | Steffan Del Piano
Technic Beat's box features these words: Manic, mayhem, madness, mind-blowing, bizarre, and odd. Yep, that just about sums it up.

Remember the 80s?
Articles Archive | 04/02/04 | GF! Back Catalogue 10/2004 => 1995
With 80's retro in full bloom, it's hard not to feel nostalgic about the music, TV, and most importantly, games from the decade of decadence. Ok, well, it's harder for some than it is for others. Monica ponders what makes some old-school games cool and others just old. Click here for musings on culture and the love of games.

Warhammer 40,000: Fire Warrior
game: Warhammer 40,000: Fire Warrior
review | 04/02/04 | GF! Back Catalogue 10/2004 => 1995
It's strange to think that a franchise with a long and detailed history would spawn a game that seems largely ignorant of that Warhammer 40k flavor, but that's exactly what happened with Warhammer 40,000: Fire Warrior. And that's not the worst of it. Absurdly bad physics and poor graphics round out the list of biggest flaws. On the upside, the music doesn't suck“which would be a bigger compliment if there actually were music in the game. Click here for the full review.
