"The Escapist heads to Los Angeles to check out the next big thing in arcade rhythm games on test.
As my flight descends into the city of Los Angeles and the endless suburban grey stretches as far as the eye can see, I try and remember the last time I travelled specifically to play a new rhythm game. Was it 2001, back when Arcade Infinity was the sole proprietor of Beatmania IIDX: 6th Style? Regardless, it seems like far too long for someone who used to travel all around to be one of the few to enjoy these games in the United States. Much has changed in the past few years, with Harmonix and the advent of Guitar Hero doing everything that the likes of Japan and Korea could not: make rhythm games a fully-blown, chart-topping cultural phenomenon."
