Rocksmith: How it works

Rocksmith: How it works

Why imitate what the other music games have done when you can propose would-be guitar players to learn the real thing? Rocksmith may have been available in North America for a while, but it will only hit the European shelves in September. Ubisoft sent us an explanation video to show us how it works. If you are already playing the game, let us know what you think in the comments.

Ubisoft sent me a copy of the US version to try. I haven't a notion how to play guitar but with the game, It gets you used to playing the instrument. When it actually comes to teaching you about music and chords and such it falls flat. I still don't really know anything about it all, I just keep playing songs, unlocking more venues as you go.
Also a friend tried it who is excellent at guitar already and there is no way to up the difficulty on it straight away until you play through all the career mode starting at beginner.

    GriftGFX The most interesting thing in that article (to me) is the dynamic optimization in Forza Apex. That's a nice piece of tech that should make its way into other engines. (31 minutes ago)

    GriftGFX But why would you? A GTX970 isn't even enough to game comfortably at 1440p, let alone 4K. Robbing yourself of performance for IQ at that point. (58 minutes ago)
