Harmonix hiring for next-gen, real-time combat game

Well here's something we definitely weren't expecting to see today: Harmonix, the genius studio behind Rock Band and Guitar Hero, is apparently developing a real-time combat game for next generation consoles. A job ad on Gamasutra reveals as much, with Harmonix looking for a "Combat Designer to create real-time, single-player combat experiences for a brand new IP on next generation hardware." In other words, it would appear that Harmonix is ready to branch out from the rhythm genre.

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.
