DLC Round-Up: February 2015

rsrufeb2015

 

Greetings Rocksmith fans!

We have reached the end of another DLC month and with it comes the DLC Round-Up!

February was a month filled with variety. We had Power Ballads from Boston, Cinderella, Extreme, Poison, and Tesla! After that we got into the post-grunge with Seether (and later Papa Roach), and Jane’s Addiction leaked with a 5 Pack that came the next week giving us a rhythm game staple, Been Caught Stealing!

Before we check out the best of February, let’s take a look at the results of last month’s poll:

Out of 350 votes:

  • Classic Riff Singles, dominated the competition with 45% of the vote – 157 Votes
  • The highly requested but shy of Top 40, Soundgarden nabbed second place with 33% of the vote – 117 Votes
  • Linkin Park’s angsty anthems got them third place with 13% of the vote – 45 Votes
  • and finally, Canadian Hard Rock outfit Three Days Grace didn’t get much love despite their guitar driven charts and active bass lines.

Variety dominates again!

Bassists kind of had a weak month, there were a few shining moments (thanks Boston and Jane’s Addiction) but overall it was mostly generic keeping the pace type stuff.

If you don’t mind the F Standard tuning this one is quite fun

 

Guitarists definitely benefited more this month with great selections like Tesla’s Love Song, Jane’s Addiction’s Superhero and Been Caught Stealing and if you are into finger picking Extreme’s More Than Words

dat intro doe

dat outro doe

Gotta love the solo in this one

So what if it’s a rip off of an Iron Maiden riff, this song is perfect for Rocksmith 2014!

Some interesting tuning variation this month!

Arrangement E Standard Drop D Eb Drop Db Drop C Eb Standard Custom Tuning
Lead 6 1 2 2 4 1
Rhythm 6 1 2 2 4 1
Bass 5 2 2 2 4 1
Alt. Lead 1 X X X X X

 

Welcome F Standard to the Rocksmith library, although not so sure that we will see it again.

How about that @UbisoftStudioSF created bass line?

So what DLC ruled February? Let us know!

See you next month!

I’m curious and throwing this out just to see if anyone else feels the same.

How about Ubisoft takes a detour for a month? Like Meghan Trainor, lets be all about that Bass. A 5pack from James Brown, some classics from Motown, an edited version of something produced by Dr. Dre (Mike Elizondo is always killing it) and finish the month off with The Chili Peppers.

I’ve made my requests on their site. How ‘about you?

Think it’s a safe bet sales were down this month. Kind of surprised Ubisoft didn’t move more into the 2Ks after dealing with the late 80s and 90s. I did get a couple of the power ballads though. Wanted to learn parts of Love Song that I didn’t already know.

Jane’s addiction, no contest. The power balled pack had good bands but weak songs. The others…well I do like last resort.

I haven’t bought any DLC this month… I’ll start catching back up sometime this week DLing 2 packs each week until I’m back up to a full catalog… needless to say I’m pretty confident that JA is easily the standout release of Feb.

While I’m sure the Ballad Singles has a few great tunes, I can’t see them all being that fun to play (I’m looking at you Poison… and maybe you too Cinderella). I will abstain from voting this month.

Hard to choose…I had fun on every pack. It’s will be difficult to pick only one.

I want TOOL also. Its just too hard to narrow down which songs to request. Theres just too many to list. Therefore any TOOL songs would work for me.

Kind of a weak month imo. Power ballads followed closey by Jane’s Addiction would be my picks for best DLC weeks.

Well, at least we had the Janes Addiction pack. The rest was not for me at all, besides the one Boston track.

A month where I have not bought anything. I might pick up Last Resort later, but I am no rush. Hope it gets somewhat better in March.
