Scantron Hero

The best thing about Scantron Hero is that every line is a single note, so I suppose the best comparison would be Hard mode on Guitar Hero. Because you know with expert there would be a healthy number of double and even triple note lines. Just don’t play the same note consecutively too many times or people might get suspicious ...

Gambridge Z-1 Guitar Controller Teaches Real Guitar Technique

Real guitarists love to bitch about how the Guitar Hero-esque game controllers hinder the complexity of real-life guitar playing. And to be honest, they’ve gotta point. As a guitar player for the past ten years or so, it pains me to see 12-year-olds pick up a game controller and think they could even have a shot at picking up the ...

Trader Joe’s is Trying Too Hard

Sitar Hero T-Shirt: Ravi Shankar and George Harrison Fans Rejoice

Music fans who prefer the sounds of Ravi Shankar to Metallica might prefer the game Sitar Hero, rather than Rock Band and Guitar Hero, or even Washboard Hero. If this game existed, would it be a hit? Possibly in India. I don’t think the sitar is a major player in American pop culture. The Love Guru didn’t help too much. ...

Which I guess makes it “unofficial.” But the extensive detail of the list, including playable musicians, leads me to believe that the detailed track list for Guitar Hero 5 will look something like the following:
