Like many twitch-based games, it’s practically impossible to cheat your way through Guitar Hero. You can play the game on easier difficulties, but if you want to have really high scores and perfects in Expert mode, you really have to be an expert.
In case you didn’t hear it this week, the Guitar Hero franchise is no longer. In tribute to their fallen gaming comrades, the guys over at Capcom decided to pay tribute to the game with a little game of their own – Marvel vs.
If you’re into the Rock Band or Guitar Hero games but don’t want to lug around a full-size guitar when you’re popping over to a friend’s house to play, you might want to check out this compact guitar.
The NEXiLUX wireless guitar controller breaks down into a couple of pieces and fits neatly inside a carrying bag that you can easily fit into your backpack.
The guys over at Gizmodo got their hands on early pics of the new guitars for Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock, and they’re really looking sweet.
By moving all of the electronics out the body of the guitar and into the neck, you’ll be able to swap outthe bodies to personalize your guitar to your own liking.
While word on the street is that future versions of Rock Band might actually teach you how to play real instruments, modder Andy Lunn couldn’t wait that long and figured out a way to make real music with his Guitar Hero drum kit.
TecToy’s upcoming revamped edition of the classic SEGA Mega Drive/Genesis system is getting a modern-day upgrade with the addition of a Guitar Hero-inspired controller and accompanying game.
The Mega Drive 4 Guitar Idol edition will include not only a Mega Drive/Genesis gaming system, and a pair of old-school controllers, but bundles a guitar that would make current-gen console players happy too.

We’ve seen game-inspired wall decals before, but nothing from a newer franchise–before, it’s always been the classics. Now, though, one of the foremost modern classics is about to join that crew: Guitar Hero.
Now you can plaster your love of little plastic instruments all over your walls.
This isn’t about being amazing at Guitar Hero; lots of people are amazing Guitar Hero players. No, this little patch of the internet is dedicated to being amazing at doing the obvious (and I mean that in a good way).

With the amazing popularity of music and rhythm games like Guitar Hero and Rock Band, it was only a matter of time before game companies would release a version targeted to more rural musical tastes. Later this Spring, Harmonix will release Washboard Hero, the newest game in the popular franchise on store shelves across the heartland of America.
Washboard Hero puts you in the role of the lead musician of a good old country jug band.

Scarves are pretty popular as the geekier crafts go, with everything from the real Punch-Out!! (in the Mike Tyson days) to Space Invaders getting the wintry neckwear treatment. But few examples can match both the artistry and dedication that went into creating this Guitar Hero scarf.
