ARGcast #191: Rocking Out in Guitar Hero w/ “StarSlay3r” Ciji Thornton

by ARGcast

Longtime Guitar Hero competitor Ciji Thornton AKA “StarSlay3r” joins us to celebrate the hit music and rhythm franchise that took the world by storm!

Let’s rock out, ARGonauts! We’re joined by our good friend “StarSlay3r” Ciji Thornton to chat about the Guitar Hero franchise. Hear us chat about what made this series so great, how Clone Hero has kept the community going, and how Ciji got into the competitive scene.

The news this week kicks off with presidential candidate Joe Biden expressing his disdain for game developers. That’s followed by a heartwarming tale of a father helping his disabled daughter play video games, a Mortal Kombat collection potentially leaked, and the Kunio-kun / River City franchise breaking into Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

The Stage of History has us raising our plastic instruments for the first time with the original Guitar Hero. Robert then lets his hair loose in Guitar Hero: Van Halen during Obscura. And don’t forget to nab our game code giveaways for She Remembered Caterpillars and One Finger Death Punch.
