Hello Rocksmith fans, and welcome to the October edition of the DLC Round-Up! Each month we will take a look back at all the DLC we have received and poll you, our wonderful readers as to what DLC gave you the most bang for your buck!
First let’s look at the results of last month’s:
Out of 420 *snicker* Votes total:
- We have our first TIE! Yup, it looks like you couldn’t decide between the five pack of Foreigner, and the three singles from the 1970’s. Both releases received 115 votes each, 27% of the vote.
- Sublime nabbed second place, proving that they are well qualified to represent the Rocksmith DLC with 23% of the vote – 96 Votes
- Shinedown took second last with 12% of the vote – 51 Votes
- In last place, everyone’s favourite rug to stomp on, Creed with 10% of the vote – 43 Votes
October was quite the month, we were promised more mega hits and we definitely got ’em. It started off with us getting one step closer to Rage Against The Machine with a five pack from Audioslave, then the highly requested duo of Jack and Meg White followed with The White Stripes, We melted our faces off with the guitar work from Dio, Winger, Poison, Autograph, and Billy Squier with Arena Rock Singles, and wrapped it all up with the 80s revival sound of The Killers!
October was kind of a slanted month towards guitarists mostly due to the inclusion of The White Stripes, which included two tracks (arguably three) that had no bass arrangement. However there’s still some love for bassists in the content we did receive!
Great bass moments included:
- Cochise and Show Me How To Live (Audioslave)
- Winger’s Seventeen
- Poison’s Nothin’ But A Good Time
and of course pretty much all five songs in The Killers pack.
Picking the best guitar song this month isn’t even a question, you are going to have to really work in Riff Repeater to nail the cacophony of awesome that is Winger’s Seventeen
Check out Sam from UbisoftSF taking it on as well
Reb Beach, we are not worthy…
If you want something a bit less technical you definitely want to check out Dio’s Holy Diver
If that’s still too tricky you won’t want to miss out on this song in The White Stripes pack with the really long name that YouTube keeps blocking.
If you don’t mind tuning to Open A you pretty much owe it to yourself to learn Seven Nation Army as well, right?
There’s a lot more as well, you don’t want to miss out on The Killers Runaways which seems to call to Bruce Springsteen for a lot of it’s influence, Audioslave’s Be Yourself, because it’s another capo enabled song to add to your song library, and of course Billy Squier’s The Stroke because well, it’s The Stroke!
An interesting month for tunings as we welcomed a new Capo arrangement and our first Open A song!
|Arrangement||Standard||Drop D||Eb Standard||Open A||Capo Required|
Definitely a good month for Eb Standard.
Which brings us to the question on everyone’s minds…
Keep it coming @UbisoftStudioSF!
