HIGH Replaying classic Final Fantasy moments with the accompanying soundtrack.

LOW Having to play the same tracks over and over to unlock new features.

Interview with Demiurge Studios' Justin Lokey

What do all of these big-name games have in common? They were all worked on by a studio you might not recognize—Demiurge. After helping the big boys with these heavy-hitting titles, they've stepped out of the shadows with Shoot Many Robots, their own original IP.

HIGH Absolutely stunning marriage of sound and visuals.

LOW Sometimes difficult to parse everything on screen.

WTF Still wrapping my mind around a backward scoring system.

Video: Mortal Kombat flash dancing, Round 2

The one good thing that came out of those terrible Mortal Kombat movies was the soundtrack, or more specifically, the opening song from the soundtrack. Not only does it get the heart pumping and the blood going when you first hear it, it also gets the feet moving too.

Guitar Hero 5: Warriors of Rock Screenshot

Remember RedOctane? I sure do. It went from making game controllers (and renting games!) to releasing an $80 peripheral with a game called Guitar Hero. I thought it was nuts for doing this. But almost six years later it looks like one of the greatest videogame risks and success stories (after the Nintendo Wii).

Annie Leung sets Guitar Hero Guinness World Record

Annie Leung sets Guitar Hero Guinness world record

As I am not a big follower of Guitar Hero record-breaking, Annie Leung, has flown below the radar despite the apparent abundance of photo shoots and public appearances documented all over the Internet. This UC Berkeley graduate—who claims to practice four to six hours at a time before a competition—has reached the top of her... sport(?) and set the official Guinness World Record for female Guitar Hero players.
