was pumped for this awhile back... looked really cool as a practice tool... and slash endorsed it!

It sort of reminds me of garageband. a light weight DAW for hobby musicians. Thats kinda cool. I even noticed they have an edition of the game that comes with a squire. Wont be cheap! I have a fender jazz bass, so Its nice to know I can use it to "play" this game.

Alright...yeah. Take a look at that screenshot. I see a lot of, "WTF?". I don't really know if this game will be very user friendly.

Rocksmith still has my vote. This I will wait and listen to what the buyers have to say.

basically what you are looking at is a bunch of guitar necks turned on their side and integrated into a time line as well as a "note grid". This looks all to familiar to me or anybody that has worked on a digital audio workstation (D.A.W)or any musician.

They should go the whole hog and throw in MIDI functionality too.

RavageX1460d ago (Edited 1460d ago )

I know what it is, just saying that it doesn't look very friendly, especially to a beginner.

Referring to it as a game, I suppose it would be similar to GH and RB in regards to difficulty levels.

I think that Rocksmith's approach with dynamic difficulty makes more sense. With this, what dictates the jump between medium and hard? Speed?

Most of the vids shown don't really go into detail well, they generally just have that Seth guy or Marcus showing off.

I still don't think this will be easy to read when it is flying by. I think there is a reason most music games scroll up and down, but who knows?

I guess we'll see how it does when it's released, I just hope they do a better job of promoting it than they have previously.

I also wonder if you can invert the tab...regardless of "how it's read" I still see it as wrong unless I look at it as playing a right-handed guitar with my left hand.

Thats actually a good point.

"I think that Rocksmith's approach with dynamic difficulty makes more sense. With this, what dictates the jump between medium and hard? Speed?"

I am going to take a guess and say maybe a combination of speed and the complexity of the song. It could be a simple two chord song that relies more on melodic structure ..but then how complex is the melody..how extreme is the key change?. So maybe the difficulty will be defined by the complexity and speed of the song. could be tricky defining what songs are easy to learn by most people. they could even turn guitar training techniques into mini games. I have never heard of these guys so I dont know how capable they are.

RavageX1460d ago

That's why I wish they would go and show us a bit more, I just feel like I don't know enough about the game/software.

I know that two of the guys have worked on music games before but that's it. I've no idea what the rest of the company is capable of.
