We reviewed Rocksmith 2014

Rocksmith 2014 was released a little while ago and we were sent our own copy of the game to make a few videos and say what we think about it. I am no prodigy but I did my best, so hopefully, you'll enjoy watching.




Verdict


The developers at Red Strom have managed to confirm that their game is indeed a nice way to practice guitar and have fun. This 2014 edition proposes a smoother experience with a varied play list that should please beginners and skilled players alike but it still requires the proper equipment to play it correctly. Indeed, you must avoid connecting the console's audio on your TV set via HDMI and it is strongly advised to use an amplifier with RCA or YUV cables instead. There is still a bit of latency even when everything has been done perfectly, but it's minor enough so it won't prevent you from improving and enjoying the game. Bass guitar players can also practice in Rocksmith 2014 as lessons and songs are adapted to their instrument as well. If you want to learn guitar, then don't listen to Phoebe and touch one when playing Rocksmith 2014.

About the game

    GriftGFX And Hawaii probably won't do anything either because banning games in Hawaii would be a seriously shitty thing for local consumers and not a whole lot of other people. (25 minutes ago)

    GriftGFX Thankfully Belgium isn't going to do anything without convincing the rest of Europe. (25 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I hope this falls completely apart based on the (obvious) broadness of the issues they're dealing with and the implications it would have downstream. This is just silly. (26 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX What's a "perk"? This is a difficult thing to legislate fairly. You're basically asking the government to get into game design. Phew. (27 minutes ago)

    droezelke @GriftGFX: no, it's an attack on lootboxes with perks. That is also what Belgium is talking about. (30 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @droezelke: The problem is: this isn't about "the EA model" it's a flat attack on "loot boxes", and that will harm consumers and good games. (34 minutes ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @GriftGFX: I have been talking about the EA model the while time. And no, I'll never buy an EA game again if they don't become consumer friendly (35 minutes ago)
