From the original announcement:
When Guitar Hero was put on indefinite hiatus, we here at The Hero Feed had a decision to make. Do we put the site on indefinite hiatus as well, or do we continue strong with the community. While we knew the lack of news would make it difficult to manage a Guitar Hero-based site, we’ve been a part of this community for several years now, and we know the strength and devotion that exists in this tight-knit group.
With that very idea in mind, we decided to keep the site as active as we could for the Guitar Hero community. While the numbers have dwindled slightly due to the lack of news, we’ve continued to be impressed with the people that keep up with the series and still play on a consistent basis. With that in mind, I am proud to announce that we will be continuing that notion of “community” through a new monthly Community Night.
The train keeps a rollin’ through this month, as we are not only seeing the continuation of the Guitar Hero Community Nights, as hosted by yours truly, but also the live Guitar Hero events. In addition, vVv Gaming will be hosting the Guitar Hero Invitational, in which you can watch in awe as the world’s best Guitar Hero players face off in a double elimination tournament!
For the first time since the live events started, they will not coincide with the weekend that the online portion of #GHComm is taking place. Instead, the live March event will happen at Emerald City Comic Con in Seattle, Washington at the end of the month. The tournament, which will be hosted by last month’s #GHComm winner, @TheMidniteFaery, will take place at 2pm on Saturday, March 31st, with sign-ups starting at 10am. Prize winners from this tournament will take home Novation Launchpads, as well as various other pieces of Hero swag.
Of course, we will still be rocking online all weekend long. Check out the details of that below, and be sure to tweet using the hashtag #GHComm. This time, we’ll be giving away some sweet DJ Hero bundles to random #GHComm tweeters! Just talk about your time playing with us, or with friends during the weekend, and you’ll be entered to win!
Remember: The point of these community nights is to get more people online at a certain time to play games that thrive on people playing together. If you want to play DJ Hero instead of Guitar Hero, go for it! Try to get more people online on whatever game you want to play by leaving a comment below with your Online ID, what console you’re going to be playing, and what game you want to play! That way, people can join you at the specified time!
