The biggest surprise of Activision's Guitar Hero 5 pre-launch event in San Francisco wasn't the addition of a hot band to the song list or something to do with DLC; it was a game mode exclusive to the Wii version called "Roadie Battle," which wound up being the most refreshing and fun addition to ...

How do you know when you're old? When you see a list of supposedly "modern hits" and you've never heard of half of them. That's, uh, not the case for us with the final Guitar Hero: Modern Hits track list, released today -- we were just saying. We're definitely hip to all these music groups. We were ...

Once again, GameStop has fuelled release rumors by posting a North American launch date for Guitar Hero: Metallica: March 29 is the date you'll want to circle (lightly, in pencil) on your Lars 2009 calendars.
