Does the end of Rock Band DLC mean the death of rhythm gaming? We look back on the life of the game that put plastic instruments in everyone’s living room and talk about why the genre isn’t dead yet. In the Hangover, we’re playing BIT.TRIP Presents… Runner2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate, Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, and recommending you avoid Aliens: Colonial Marines and The Last Remnant.
