Dubstep unplugged.

Posted by ZeForgotten

"Do songs even have guitars anymore? Isn't everything dubstep now?"

Oh god, Alex! don't even joke about that, that's not funny!
Think what kind of special hell that would be.

Suddenly all the music with actual instruments just vanished and was replaced with beeps and boops

Rocksmith 2015 can be the all-dubstep-guitar-covers edition.

Posted by ionkinetic

Look like it also does Bass guitar, that would be good, I'v had mine for more then ten years and can't play.

Edited by jimmy_p

Time for Vinny to bring his guitar into the office again. I'd love another quick look

Does this mean Vin Dog gets to play Black Hole Sun again?

Backwards compatible. DLC carries over. I'm in. The first one was a really good practice tool.

This guy seems like a younger version of Peter Molyneux.

Posted by Sin4profit

Didn't know the old songs were backwards compatible. I'll definitely pick this up. i had a lot of fun with Rocksmith and the changes here look pretty smart.

Yes! I knew there was something about him!

Posted by OptimalPower

Looks great. Looking forward to it.

Posted by SexyRandal

This is looking really good. Rocksmith was a lot of fun but definitely felt "proof of concept" in some places. The menu and clunkiness of the riff-repeater made the experience pretty frustrating, glad they've fixed that.

You are the dubstep!

Edited by Thoseposers

I just hope they've fixed the detection of drop d, whenever i had to use that it could never pick up the notes i was playing correctly

Posted by Keithcrash

@ionkinetic: It does. I want this for that exact reason. I'm a shitty bass player. I'm sure this will help me get less shitty.

I like how formal and informative it was and then out of nowhere "Rocksmith 2014 kicks the shit out of Rocksmith 1."

Glad I'll finally be able to manually pick the difficulty instead of it constantly mixing up the damn notes on me.

Posted by CheapPoison

They really need to tell people if this finally supports third party hardware as an input device... Like a semi professional interface..
Otherwise i am instantly out.

Edited by ajamafalous

I'll definitely pick this up at some point. Bought the first one on a Steam sale but still haven't picked up the cable yet.

"Rocksmith 2014 kicks the shit out of Rocksmith 1!" LOL!

Yeah, I use Rocksmith Bass and I can report that it's great. I love it. It has a lot of problems, but they are all experience issues, as they mention in the video. The game itself works great and is a ton of fun. The problems are just things like a poor, slow interface, and requiring you to play their Rockband-like "story-mode". If you just want to fire up 10 tracks and play some music, you really dont' want to worry about "unlocking" venues and crap.

O_o

Why do you care? The Realtone cable works fine...

Picked up the first game on sale a few weeks ago, I'm actually really enjoying it. Looking forward to the upgrades in this one.

Yeah, that really hurt the first one. It was tough to play for a while and then put the game down for a few weeks and come back to it. The level you are at when you get done playing for 2 hours every day and the level you are at when you come back after two weeks of not playing are never going to be the same.

Posted by CornBREDX

Oh wow. Didn't know this was still a thing that existed.

Posted by clush

No Jerry Cantrell. Stupid video.

Posted by rasko_the_brave

Loved the first one.

Posted by AlmostSwedish

They mention every single problem I hade with the first game.

Game of the Year.

Posted by rubzo

Anyone else getting a Jony Ive feel with this video?

Edited by Lego_My_Eggo

Good, there fixing all the big problems i had with the first. I still wish they would allow some kind of menu control with the guitar tho, fells awkward having to pick up a controller every so often for menu stuff, but thats just me being nitpicky.

DIDN'T THEY GET THE "RHYTHM GAMES ARE DEAD" MEMO?

Edited by AngriGhandi

"Isn't everything dubstep now?"

No, everything just picked up the "backmasked bass drum" effect from dubstep. Everything else dubstep related is gradually dying a pitiable death from overexposure. Like that guy in "To Build a Fire."

...

*SPOILERS*

Posted by Atom

Already pre-ordered. I hope they actually do release the Mac version this time around.

Edited by AngriGhandi

But honestly? At this point, anyone who's still even making a rock music rhythm game is going to get my money, purely on principle.

DON'T STOP BELIEVING, BABY

It's not a rhythm game, though.

Edited by crimsonlordofwar

As someone who's put 90+ hours into the first I been looking forward to a version that gets rid of the 'gamey' parts of Rocksmith. Day one if true, especially since the PC versions going out dayndate with consoles

I'd also love it if they added note rearrangements, because there were a few songs were I wasn't a fan of their placement and kept getting thrown off by whats on the screen vs my arrangement. That said, I'm pretty stoked :)

Posted by PLWolf

Learned a ton with Rocksmith and so excited about this version. Now I can finally create my setlist, toss the controller, and jam for an hour. And no loads!! That part killed me in RS.

Posted by csl316

Vinny's enthusiasm for the first one had me intrigued. Really looking forward to this, mainly for the jam track business.

Edited by skrutop

"Fix the menus" indeed. I really liked Rocksmith, though it certainly had its share of rough edges. I'm really looking forward to this new version, as they seem to focus way more on training and practice over high scores and fake rockstar career progression.

It doesn't really matter if you use your own interface or the Rocksmith cable, the input lag is mostly on the software side. And if you have the audio setup correctly for the game the audio lag is minimal.

And it was possible to use your own interface and ASIO or something if you got a modified .exe for the game. Don't know how well that works though.

Looking forward to this game, 382 hours in the first one now and will probably be over 400 by the time this is out..

Edited by tourgen

I WANNNNTSSSSS THIS~!

but do I stick with the PS3 or move to the PC version. hmmmmmmm.

Edited by crimsonlordofwar

@xyber: Ya, with my setup I had hardly any noticeable lag, but I do find the audio to lacking at best. Thinking of splitting off my audio to my amp this time.

Posted by sissylion

So my guitar-playing skills have been stagnating for a few years, but I also only play acoustic. For those who have played the first game, is this series enough of a quality instructional/practice tool that it would be worth it for me to pick up a really shitty electric guitar so that I could, you know, play it?

Edited by crimsonlordofwar

@sissylion: If they fix the problems of the first like they're claiming, yes. If not, then its nothing more than an instructional game that really wants to be guitar hero. The first has its heart in the right spot, but I also feel like it was trying to be something its not and muddying up some really satisfying mechanics with annoyances in the process. That said even if it's like the first you'll get better by shear repetition and for many its a fun and debatably better replacement of the old way of practicing a guitar(a pair of headphones with the song on repeat).

I plan on preordering it and getting it day one, so it you want to wait for a review from a guitar player(intermediate player) before you make the investment then I'll be happy to post one up on the site.

Posted by ThatRoss

Can't wait for this! Bought Rocksmith 1 on PS3 after Vinny's Quick Look...then bought the PC version when it finally arrived, as the PS3 version was so slow (epic load/save times, horrific menus, lousy frame rate)...

Hoping my 2011 Mac Mini has enough graphics juice to play this...if not, back to the PC.

Hey buddy! Look at me when you're talking to me!
