It’s a conversation anybody who grew up in the 90s has had at least a dozen times: “Remember when MTV actually played music videos?” Yes, yes—we all do. Those times are over. Well, those times were over: Activision is about to change everything. It’s launching Guitar Hero TV: a “channel” where you can not only watch…
“This is stupid,” I try to tell myself. “Weren’t music games just a fad?” For one long minute, I struggle to hit a single note on my plastic axe, as game developers and PR people fire eye-daggers into the back of my head. But then, all of a sudden, it clicks. I’m strumming up a storm. I’m playing the new …
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.

Slide on a pair of electrode-laden armbands, and suddenly all your sweet air-guitar licks are captured, finger by finger, without an instrument in sight. Sure, there are plenty of good reasons for this besides Guitar Hero.
Controllers can be a hassle to keep track of, and often clutter up valuable home entertainment space. But here comes the Wall Clip, what Mary Poppins would surely have used if the Banks children had been gamers.

This isn't the first time Christmas lights have met Guitar Hero on the pages of Gizmodo, but this former Disney employee's efforts are definitely the best use of the game that I've ever seen.
Buckle the eff up for Remainders today, because we've got: A man in a chicken suit playing "What Is Love," two separate Christmas-themed videos (one Muppet, one Guitar Hero), minor Apple updates, and a severed hand crafted of breakfast foods.
Definitely one for the things-I-wish-I-were-talented-enough-to-do category. These five guys are playing a way-bigger-than-life-size game of Guitar Hero by shooting soccer balls at sensors made from torn apart Guitar Hero controllers. Oh, and they're scoring some pretty decent accuracy, too.
The disdain I harbored for that ridiculous Altec Lansing Guitar Hero "stage monitor" was fading this morning, but news from Polk that they, too, would be entering the world of fake music accessories revived those feelings anew.

What you're watching is "JRefleX93" playing Mr. Crowley in Guitar Hero on expert. With his elbow. While he does this, there are going to be two Rubik's Cubes entering the frame. By the end of the video they are solved.
Young Alan here would like to show you how his OpenChord V1 guitar—an actual, string-having guitar—can be used to control everyone's favorite rhythm game. Warning: If you ever want to play Guitar Hero again, don't watch this video.
