  • Guitar Hero: Van Halen Review

    Van Halen will rock your damn face off, sissy... but can the hottest band of the 1980s stand up to the video game treatment? In G4's review, Andrew Pfister (known in Southwest Indiana as a rock and roll legend) puts the game through its paces and asks the age old question: Why can't this be love? Answer: Band in-fighting. Sammy Hagar does not...

    Hey, I don't have anything against old people. Decades from now, when every game is motion controlled, youngsters will be laughing at me, too. But for the time being, it's the other way around. The Faster Times recently ran a series of photos collected from Flickr chronicling a series of older men and women trying their hand at ye ol' Guitar...

  • Jimmy Page And Jack White Don't Like Guitar Hero

    It's interesting to find out how rockers feel about music games like Guitar Hero and Rock Band. Yeah, they're just games, and we just have fun with them, but it must be surreal to have your art, job and craft appear in a video game. If you've poured your life-blood and passion into a musical composition, it must be really, really weird to have...
