I was just wondering if any of you guys have that
Video Game Rocksmith. It looks pretty cool, but its
just way too expensive for a Game.
#2
My friend has it and I've always wanted to try it, mostly out of curiosity, but I haven't yet.
You are now using UG Black.
You are now using UG Classic.

No, but it looks interesting. I want to try it out just to see what it's like. Definitely wouldn't use it as a learning tool, though.
I shall grant you three wishes.

None of which will work.


Does the above post enrage, offend or confuse you?

Good.


I like my women how I like my guitars. Curvy and like it when I finger them.

Why not? It's a pretty good learning tool. I learned a few new scale shapes and how to play about 5 songs over the course of 4 days.

It is a cool teaching tool and you can make some funny sounds.

Doesn't beat playing with an actual band though.


but you don't get an awesome video crowd with a real band.

I got it on PS3.

Its worth the cash if your willing to shell it out. it has vastly improved my skill over the course of 9 months ( I bought it back in January). You can learn/play guitar and bass if you desire, you got mini games in what RS calls a "Guitarcade" that helps with chords, scales, harmonics, slides etc. you got an in game tuner that tunes to standard, drop d, Eb, and open G. its got techniques that you can practice on guitar and bass anywhere from slides to harmonics. The on disc songs are mostly hipster shit with a few goodies thrown in. The DLC is great though. Next tuesday they got a 3 pack of A7X coming and the week after that they anounced a Rush pack Overall to me its worth it and other than NCAA Football '13, its the only game I play on my PS3.

edit: You also get an in game amp with you can freely jam on which is cool

Can I use it with my Presonus USB interface, or do I have to buy the stupid Rocksmith interface?

There's a crack that lets you use any interface with varying results.

hmmmm......

Try GuitarBots instead, OP. That's still in beta stage, but looks really promising - you can try it for free on the browser too, no additional equipment (like cables and such) needed!

Can't wait for them to release an editor for custom songs! Will be sweet!

I have it and while I enjoy it there are certainly better games out there. I'm currently addicted to Viva Pinata

Viva Pinata = awesome

Also rock smith is sitting in my room right now, Gamestop refuses to buy it
It is a pretty good game though, wasn`t to into the songs, but the mini games are fun.

The mini games are the best part I agree. You sir are awesome for your love of Viva Pinata

I do. Despite what people who haven't played it will have you believe, it's actually really cool. It's fun and sometimes while you're playing it you'll forget you're playing guitar and just feel like you're playing a videogame.

People who have never played guitar will have a rough time at first, but if you do actually play guitar, it should be fun and anyone can stand to improve by learning more songs they don't know.

It could definitely use more songs though. There are some good songs on there, but overall the current tracklisting is less than stellar (it still has a lot of songs though). Not a whole lot of metal or stuff with guitar solos. But if you want to learn some new songs, it's a really quick, efficient, and fun way to do so.

Also, it's $80 for the game and microUSB guitar input cable that comes with (plugs into any guitar with a standard input). But you really gotta play with this with a component cable or external sound system, because you will definitely get latency issues with just an HDMI cable. A PS3 component cable is something like another $30.

On the come up we were listening to Grateful Dead and the music started passing through my bowel and out my arsehole as this violet stream of light. I shat music. It was beautiful.

It's actually a great learning tool. Especially with the mini games--Scale Runner and Dawn of the ChorDead (stupid name, I know) in particular.

I was talking to my Girlfriend and she asked what I want for my Birthday. I told her this and she called this the Lev Vygotsky Comprehensible Input Method.

Apparently this game is based on actual educational principles used to teach language.

She watched one video and wants it to learn the guitar and for her daughter to use to learn as well.

She is an ESL teacher and she is thrilled with the game already.

You must have got ripped off. I saw that game for $60 brand new and PS3 component cables come free with the PS3.

My brother has it and it's cool but I suck at it really badly for some reason despite the songs I tried being really easy. There was also a problem with it going out of sync a lot.
#29
It has really helped me "learn" the fretboard, in the sense that I see a note on the 15th fret on the G string coming up, and my hand just moves there without having to look where I'm moving it to.

I play too much metal to be interested in this. That and I've playing guitar longer than there has been ps3 or xbox systems. SOOOOOO it seems good for ppl who aren't me olololol

So liking metal means you aren't interested in video games?

Interesting.
#32
Is it worth buying, iv never heard of it?
Is it all just simple songs or is there some more advanced stuff in there?

Song selection is ever diversifying. DLC every other week atm.

I'm so tempted to buy this now... I need to work on my rhythm playing, so I figure this will be a lot more fun than just using a metronome.
I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.


I don't always post on UG, but when I do, I post in the Pit. Stay thirsty my friends.

I'm still not getting what that has to do with the genre of music you rate highest.

Playing it right now

Kind of fails in the video game aspect but its a fun learning tool. Like a reverse guitar hero.

Why have there been so many rocksmith threads lately?
