As I've said many times in the past, I was a Guitar Hero man all the way up until I first laid eyes on that beautiful keyboard for Rock Band 3. The Hero series was stale, iterating annually (sometimes multiple times...   read

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...

Here's how to turn off Rock Band 4's Freestyle guitar solos

Rock Band 4, largely the Rock Band that you already know and maybe love, has one big change from previous games. That is the Freestyle guitar solo. Its intent is to break away from the traditional and sometimes very tough scripted solo...

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...

Re-downloading your Rock Band DLC is a giant pain in the ass on Xbox One

In preparation for Rock Band 4's release next week, I figured it's about time to start downloading the songs I bought on Xbox 360 for use on my Xbox One. There's no doubt in my mind that if I have friends over to play and all the tracks the...

Rock Band 4 releases next week, last chance to stock up on cheap DLC

It may seem counter-intuitive, but this is a rare example of a time when you might want to purchase downloadable content before a game comes out. I know, I know -- we usually rally against that hard, but bear with us just this once. For thr...

We are entering a new age of video game plastic this month

Review: P4D
Persona 4 was a story about acceptance. We all have a dark side, some aspect of our personality we dislike about ourselves, something we choose to repress and hide away from the rest of the world. This isn't the healthiest pr...   read

Faux '80s Rock Band 4 video goes over the basics
