I have consistently ended up with 1 song from the recent packs (2 from Oasis, none from Weezer). I actually have gone back and bought some of the old DLC I hadn't gotten - 867-5309 Jenny, Eye of the Tiger, White Wedding... Better than the new stuff. When they gave the hint this week, I thought it was Motley Crue - I would have been OVER THE MOON about Crue in RS. My only salvation is that I KNOW Tom Petty and probably Def Leppard are coming at some point.

That Kiss DLC is a pretty big letdown. If they want to go for some big name bands how about a little AC/DC or Black Sabbath? I'm sure they'd be happy to lend their tracks out.

That Kiss DLC is a pretty big letdown. If they want to go for some big name bands how about a little AC/DC or Black Sabbath? I'm sure they'd be happy to lend their tracks out.

AC/DC is VERY controlling about their music in any medium - they just only recently allowed iTunes downloads and when they were in a music game, they required an entire game. They did allow export - which is better than the Beatles, but it was a fight, evidently. They may also still be under contract because of said game.

 

Black Sabbath has NEVER had an original song in any music game. The only songs from them were cover versions in Rock band. That would likely mean that they're very difficult to license, since Rock Band had over 3000 songs available at the end...
 

I've said before - the BIG requests are likely not in the game for a very good reason. It's not like the devs don't know who Black Sabbath, The Eagles, Led Zep, Pink Floyd, AC/DC, Guns N' Roses, Metallica or ZZ Top are - they just aren't able to license them. It looks like Bandfuse used a little leverage from their tight partnership with what's left of Harmonix to grease their deal along with the Hendrix estate. So far, that's the only big win in this generation of music games - unless you count Aerosmith and Green Day for Rocksmith - who people thought were still under contract to other games...

Is this for real? New songs only work on RS 2014? I was excited to finally see some DLC I wanted in SOAD but totally pissed that they pulled a move like this. Can anyone confirm? Is this the policy for all future DLC???

Yea and that's been the policy for almost 6 months now...

 

Rocksmith 2014 takes advantage of more techniques and elements of the guitar that the first one was unable to replicate in their tracks

Yeah... I felt the same way when I went to load up all the Borderlands 1 content in Borderlands 2 and it wasn't compatible... and those map packs from Call of Duty:World at War??? They don't fucking work in COD:Ghosts!!! Ripoff bastards!!!

 

If it makes you feel better, the DLC from RS1 DOES work in RS2014 - with all the new techniques included.

LOL... Yeah. Nothing for me this week, I don't think. Assuming the hint that Paul messed up this week was for next week, we are probably getting either the Monkees or Dylan next week (probably Dylan, I'd think).

Looks similar in size to my wireless unit.

 

But don't like how this one has the cable hard-wired into the transmitting unit.  What was the price???

So, I gotta ask...  is BF worth a buy at $20?

 

Thought I'd grab it at that price, eventually.  But now think it'll just end up in my backlog.

My free time is pretty much non-existant right now.

Yes. It's fun to play. It sounds great. The moving tab isn't NEAR as hard to read as I thought it'd be. Being able to drop out the original guitar audio and then listen to yourself play is HUGELY informative (if you want to believe that you really sound as good as the original guitarist, though, then don't get BF).

 

The DLC has been really disappointing to me, but I like many of the on disc songs and did pick up "Simple Man" from the first round of DLC. I wish I had waited for a big sale, but I am not unhappy that I have it, by any means.

Bandfuse wil have a whopping total of 20 DLC's this Feb. 25, if DLC's is a factor in getting the game you may want to wait. At the current rate of 10 a month, it's going to be awhile before they have half the selection as Rocksmith 2014 and as far as a big sale happening... I don't see that happening anytime soon. But I could be wrong.

...and I'll add to the above statement that with the lukewarm reception of BF, the startlingly low number of copies sold and no EU release, I doubt Realta stays a going concern for more than a year. There's just no way.

That could be cool. I'd be in for Love Me Two Times and People are Strange (though this one is fairly simple to learn without Rocksmith, just check out a youtube video).

I literally don't know a single Doors song other than "Light my Fire" - and I only know that vaguely. I'll pass on this pack and hope for something I like next week. :( Big grab for RS, though - that'll be a good selling pack!

It's sold out. (Was for a Zoom GNu for $60) It wouldn't have been too bad of a price I guess, but it's hard to recommend when I was able to get a brand new GN2.1DM for ~$75 last year. I really like that pedal for what I paid for it. If the gnu interests you, look into a gn2.1dm or gn2.1ma first

Anyone have any thoughts on the Jackson Kelly Bird line of basses? I don't see very many online reviews, but it looks like a cool body style, sort of a hybrid between a thunderbird and an explorer, and allows access to the 19th fret, unlike a TBird, important when your favorite song is For Whom The Bell Tolls! Looking at the JS3 in trans blue. Any thoughts? Thanks!

Well, what do you want to record?  Video playthru, your own playing, Both???

 

And yeah,  RS cables are pricey.  That's why we always jump on fire-sales for the old version of Rocksmith.

Free coaster/game with your cable... all for 10bucks :D
