Pick of the Week
Amplitude was a beloved game near and dear to even myself and was released for the PS2. This was the second game created by Harmonix and sequel to Frequency. Much of what Rockband is comes from what Amplitude was and the company wanted to get back to their roots. They had made a Kickstarter to see the game come to light but has of recent already passed their goal funding. It goal was set to $775,000 with a second goal to include multiplayer online head to head if they surpassed $1,125,000 but didn’t make it. They have already secured artists that supported the original game and will be releasing the game next year on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3.
