Good lord, there was nearly a Guitar Hero MMO

Before Activision put the Guitar Hero series on ice in 2011, it was apparently working on an MMO. According to Unseen 64 contributor Liam Robertson, who claims to have spoken with (and obtained footage from) developers on the now-...   read

Activision has a round of layoffs, entire Minneapolis location may have closed

Following last week's investors' report, it seems as if Activision has laid off an undisclosed number of employees. These layoffs may be, in part, due to the fact that Activision says both Skylanders and Guitar Hero under-performe...   read

Guitar Hero Live is resurrecting the infamous 'Through the Fire and the Flames'

Activision has been steadily supporting Guitar Hero Live's TV element for months now, adding constant new content to the game. Although it has microtransactions the system is more than fair, and allows for a ton of songs to be added in, fre...   read

Mike Cosimano's personal picks for Game of the Year 2015

2015 was a divisive year -- tremendous in terms of media (TV like Master of None and The 100; movies like Spotlight and The Force Awakens; games like...well, keep reading) and a garbage year in terms of my life. Entertainment became a ...   read

Avenged Sevenfold is hosting a show on Guitar Hero Live this week

I'm still rocking out with Guitar Hero Live, mostly because of the constant free content that comes my way by way of Guitar Hero TV. Sure there are microtransactions under the surface, but for weeks now, I've played the TV function wit...   read

One-on-one rival battles have come to Guitar Hero TV

When it comes to Guitar Hero Live, the one song I kick arse at is "Everybody Talks" by Neon Trees. I know it’s not considered “rock enough” for a Guitar Hero game by some people, but they’re obviously just jealous of...   read

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,"...   read

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...   read

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 ...   read

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 ...   read

Review: Guitar Hero Live

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 in a year), an...   read

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...   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...   read

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...   read

Guitar Hero Live left me afraid to ever try playing live music

Back in my mid-teens I played drums in a hastily thrown together rock band. We mainly played pretty bad covers of other people's songs, occasionally writing our own tracks that went on far too long and were excessively simplistic. Still, we...   read
