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 duel mode in Quake Champions is like.. King of Fighters. (6 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Going to pick up Puyo Puyo Tetris and Binding of Isaac next. Then Mario Kart. Maybe Splatoon 2. (13 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Yeah, I'll be bolloxed if I'm hunting for 800 koroks or whatever it is. At least the shrines offer a decentish reward. (13 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I doubt I'll try to 100% Zelda, but I can already tell that it's a very big game. (15 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @Moonwalker: One for my desk and one for my livingroom. It would also be convenient to have a portable dongle. Part of the beauty of the device is portability. (15 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Doing it that way before going to Ganon should take you in the region of about 100 hours, minimum. I only just finished the game 3 days ago. Nearly 8 weeks of hammering the game. (16 Hours ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @GriftGFX:Zelda will keep you occupied for a brave while. If, you're like myself, you'll want to take in everything Hyrule has to offer by exploring everything (16 Hours ago)
