Activision reveals crowd-sourced music video results for Guitar Hero Live

I'm generally not a fan of lip-sync videos, but it looks like Activision managed to round up quite a few people into their newest scheme for Guitar Hero Live. The gist is that people are tasked with creating a video for Ed Sheeran's "Sing,"...

Guitar Hero Live adds another live rock concert this week

One of the coolest things about Guitar Hero Live's GHTV element is that Activision, in the near future at least, is keen on supporting it with constant new content. That includes 70 new songs by the end of the year, and updated live concert...

Guitar Hero TV adds Iggy Pop and White Stripes this week

I'm surprised at how much I'm still playing Guitar Hero Live. It's really easy for me to boot up the TV function and just play random songs, which cycle in new tracks on a constant basis. I have over a hundred "free plays" and I rarely use ...

Guitar Hero Live is adding 70 new songs to GHTV by the end of the year

Guitar Hero Live was a pleasant surprise. After Activision milked that cow for so long, I didn't think it could introduce one of the freshest rhythm games in years, but it did. But this is just the start for Guitar Hero TV (GHTV), the ...

There's a $370 PS4 bundle with Uncharted, Guitar Hero Live

We know Black Friday is around the corner, but retailers are trying their darnedest to bundle console offerings to offload inventory. Some are better than others. This PS4 One in particular is decent. Over at Antonline's eBay outlet, they'r...

The Seahawks lost yesterday because Macklemore played Guitar Hero at halftime

A lot of dumb things happened in football this weekend. Michigan decided it would like Michigan State to continue its recent domination of the intrastate rivalry, so the Wolverines did this -- a not very good football play. The Indianapolis...

You will know (and love) most of Guitar Hero Live's newest songs

You know what they say about saving the best for last. Well, I guess they just say to do it. It's a good idea. Then everyone's like "Wow, we doubted you, but some real nice stuff happened at the end." That's Guitar Hero Live's legacy for th...

Guitar Hero Live is approaching DLC in a fairly controversial way

FreeStyleGames, the developer of Guitar Hero Live, has posted its plans for the Guitar Hero TV (GHTV) portion of the game, and it's intriguing to say the least. Basically, instead of buying songs piecemeal for $2 or so, you're going to be s...

Guitar Hero Live's new batch of songs is... actually pretty good

Singing confirmed for Guitar Hero Live

Maybe you'll actually recognize a few of this week's Guitar Hero Live songs

After the initial reveal of Guitar Hero Live, Activision's been slowly unveiling ten songs a week to keep us interested. The only problem is that the vast majority of songs (and artists) are completely unknown to the majority of people. Tha...
