Guitar Hero Live makes you an actual (digital) rock star

The Guitar Hero franchise seems to have more life than actual rock stars. A full decade in, a typical band would have retired or split up for solo projects. Not Guitar Hero, though. Ten years old and a full five years or so since its last release, Guitar Hero Live is coming your way. Not a reboot, Guitar Hero Live is more than a game — it’s a platform. Along with the new-look game, you’ll also get access to GHTV, Guitar Hero’s play-along collection of videos.

Activision teases new incarnation of Guitar Hero for PS4 and Xbox One

Activision teases new incarnation of Guitar Hero for PS4 and Xbox One

Activision just released this teaser trailer for one of their soon-to-be-released games. The teaser is purposefully mysterious as it doesn't specify a game title, but after watching it we're leaning towards a new game from the Guitar Hero franchise.

I even have my share of aftermarket guitar controllers for the game. However, I draw the line at some of the stranger accessories like smoke kits and my own stage monitor speaker like the new HitMaster from Polk Audio.

Student builds creepy Guitar Hero playing robot type thing

Student builds creepy Guitar Hero playing robot type thing

I once watched this scary movie where one of those ventriloquist dummies stalked some people in a house with a big knife. The movie really creeped me out. This Guitar Hero playing robot created by a student at Minnesota West Technical College is really creepy and reminds me of that movie. Except this dummy would be following you around and hitting you with a guitar controller from Guitar Hero.

Activision and Everyone Tied to Kurt Cobain At Odds Over Guitar Hero 5 Representation

Activision and Everyone Tied to Kurt Cobain At Odds Over Guitar Hero 5 Representation

With the announcement of Guitar Hero 5, nothing was bigger than the fact that Kurt Cobain, the former lead singer of Nirvana, had been licensed as a likeness within the game. We haven't really gone into depth on this at all, even as the story broke repeatedly over the last week or so. It seemed to be just a flare up from Courtney Love, Cobain's widow, as she defended herself against the myriad of complaints she had received from fans of Cobain and the band, most of which had been focused on her Twitter feed.
