Def Leppard’s latest music video makes its debut in Guitar Hero Live, because there just aren’t many places to debut a music video anymore. “Dangerous” joins “Let’s Go” and “Rock of Ages” as part of the “Def Leppard: Through The Ages” premium show.
GuitarHeroFailure says he uploaded “Bark at the Moon” to YouTube, but the song was taken down—presumably due to YouTube’s automated copyright system. As you may already know, YouTube is particularly aggro about music.
Even though I’ve been playing Super Mario Maker nearly every day for more than two months now, I’m constantly surprised by what players have come up with. My latest discovery? Forcing Mario through a version of Guitar Hero to escape.
Rock Band 4 got me ready to pick up an instrument again. Guitar Hero Live got my fingers moving back and forth. Together they convinced me to take the next step—buying the cheapest guitar possible and a copy of Rocksmith.
Guitar Hero Live is two separate games united by a single plastic guitar. One is the first game in the series to truly live up to its name. The other is decidedly different.
“Can video game videos be art?”
This little guy might only be two years old, but damn, Rage Against The Machine speaks to him.
Confession: if I had spent anything like as much time playing actual guitar as I did playing pretend guitar as a teenager, I might have had a very different career path. In the late days of the 2006-9 rhythm-action boom, some hardcore pretend musicians split out into Guitar Hero fans and Rock Band fans, but…
There’s a new Guitar Hero game coming this year, say our friends at Kotaku UK. Rumor (or, in this case, rumour) suggests it’ll be more “realistic” than previous games in the series, with new guitar peripherals and a scheduled release for PS4 and Xbox One by the end of 2015.
I wish I could say Bearzly inspires me to try harder at games like Dark Souls, but the truth is that I just feel shame at my terrible rolling technique. Look at him! So calm and collected while whammy-barring his way to victory.
I know what you’re thinking. Dark Souls is a bit easy. If only there was some way to up the challenge. [Crash zoom to Guitar Hero controller in the corner.]
What an age we live in! A treadmill and some snacks are enough to make your own rhythm game—or at least something similar, as this short Vine, posted by Savannah, shows.
There are very few scenarios in which I would even consider spending $1000 on a photograph of former Microsoft boss Bill Gates.
A recent video popped up on YouTube, and it shows a spectacular rooftop snowfall in China. On YouTube and on various blogs, people are comparing the snowfall to difficult stages in music games like Beatmania and Guitar Hero. And you know, it kind of does look like that, but colder.
The party ended for the once-mighty Guitar Hero series in 2011, when Activision finally decided that the world had played enough guitar video games.
We here at Kotaku aren't the only ones with servers in storm-beset New York City. Activision, too, has servers in the zone affected by wind, water, and power outages, and those servers are having a rough time of things right now.
The band No Doubt—basically, Gwen Stefani—put an end to its lawsuit against Activision for the means by which it was portrayed in 2009's Band Hero, a spinoff of the Guitar Hero franchise.
Quick question: does anyone remember the plot of Guitar Hero III? Does anyone remember if it had one? You might remember that Slash, Axl Rose and Bret Michaels showed up in the threequel, which was the first game in the franchise after it moved to Activision. But that's about all that was memorable about Guitar Hero…
