Rocksmith 2014 DLC 5/6 – 311

Greetings Rocksmith fans!

As predicted last week, today’s Rocksmith 2014 DLC is a 3 Pack from 311!

Finally, a bit of frat boy reggae influenced 90s alternative ska rock! No surprises in this pack (where is Come Original??) with 1995’s Down off their self-titled album, Beautiful Disaster off Transistor, and finally the closest thing we have to a chilled out reggae song, Amber off 2002’s From Chaos.

If you’re a bassist you want this DLC, nothing too tricky but just a lot of fun to play!

311 Song Pack – $7.99 / Steam

Will you be picking up the 311 pack? Or are you saving your money for Mastodon? Let us know in the comments below.

 

… Also, where is my Sublime DLC?

I might have got this pack if it had ‘come original’ just for some slap bass (that one slap song only is really annoying, ‘higher ground’ is a great song but I mastered it on RS1), but no, I’m not bothering again. I can’t stand ‘down’, the other two are ok, for me.

When can we finally have more songs from the sixtees, seventees? There was no decent DLC for me the last weeks. I even don’t know a lot of the last bands. What about Badfinger, Kinks, Everly Brothers (would be perfect, even if they are more 50s). Johnny Cash would also be great.

I want to spend some money!

Not that I’ve updated my list lately, but 311 has to be in my top 3 (bottom three?) least favourite bands list. Auto-pass.

Is it too early to ask for a Screaming Trees pack? How about some more Soundgarden? That Silverchair song was a good excuse to dig out my Docs but I need more, dammit! 🙂

And again a pass for me. The last time there is too much 90’s music i dont’ like. There is also too much metal (metal, i dont like it at all). Where is the classic Rock? The last DLC was Boston i think?

To be fair, Golden Earing did say “metal, I don’t like at all”. From that standpoint “very little metal” could easily be construed as too much metal. Calling it a lie is a bit strong.

I knew how to play 2 of these already (Down and Beautiful Disaster). I never liked Amber.

I have not played the pack yet BUT, I imagine that Down is going to be kind of awkward without a wah pedal or ways to chart harmonics more accurately.

Beutiful Disaster is going to be the pack’s standout track IMO.

Looking forward to Mastodon next week. Also, I’ve been enjoying the 3 and 4 pack business lately. Purchasing a 5 pack every week and then SINGLES when there wasn’t a pack was expensive… spent a lot of dough on DLC.

compared to RS1, this DLC stream is crazy. We got 3 songs every OTHER week and we were ecstatic to get a 4-pack (Rush). Between the JPN DLC and weekly packs that are usually 5, we’ve gotten a lot of content really quickly on 2014.

…maybe we should be grateful? 🙄

Slightly disappointed it isn’t a 4 or 5 pack, but regardless I am getting it. Been jamming on Amber hard the past few days in anticipation.

I was also getting psyched for Come Original and the slap bass, but I guess I will just have to learn that one from tabs.

Enough with the Ubisoft hate, please. Sure, 311’s not anyone’s favorite, but for someone like me (who’s been playing for less than a year), their simple, riff-centric material makes an ideal, soft learning curve. I bought the good stuff, like Painkiller and Hanger 18, and all I can do is mournfully plink away at a percentage of the song, telling myself ‘someday…’. For us novices, it’s fun to have a song that we can learn 100% of in a short amount of time, even if it’s a 311 song.

Damn that soft riff, this reggae vibe, the tones are gorgeous, the bass line is very great, perfect song.

But the two others… Arf shitty filter distorsion tones, the voice of the 2nd singer is awful by the way. Looks like shitty “neo metal” songs.

OK look I don’t know you but I’m starting to really worry about you. The frequency with which you come here to troll would indicate you’re pretty dedicated to this, yet any other troll with that much dedication would have the sense to go after a bigger more reactive audience and come up with a shtick with more depth than “look at me I’m angry and an idiot.” This leads me to believe you aren’t really serious about trolling, yet you still do it so much. That leaves a couple possibilities. Maybe you’re not trolling which would make you (mentally at least) 12 at most, which would be consistent with your recent fixation on acting “adult,” in which case I worry you might act like you comment here in real life (even if it’s toned down), and you’d need to learn a valuable lesson about how you present yourself to others. The other possibility is that you’re trolling so much but don’t put more effort into it because deep down you’re ashamed of it. You started commenting here when you were in a dark place for whatever reason, and for whatever reason the attention of people mocking you resonated with you, so you just had to keep doing it because it filled some void in your life, but you don’t really want to keep it up, it’s just like an addiction. If that’s the case, like seriously you need to find a better outlet. Or maybe you’re just a parody of other whiners who doesn’t know when to stop because you think this whole think is a lot funnier than it is. Seriously, this is such a small site with mostly civil comments except for outliers like you, it’s not worth the effort. And finally, because I have a hunch… Read more »

Look, I know you put a lot of time in that, you probably feel pretty smart. Maybe you even think you have a future in psychology. Perhaps your “career prospects” have suddenly lit up; you’re going to be a success. You’re going to make it. Who knows, maybe you’ll make $100k a year being a therapist. $110k a year being a therapist. $150k a year being a therapist for celebrities. $205k a year being a therapist for politicians. Perhaps you can even make $250k a year being a therapist for television; you could get a job on a daytime TV talk show. You can be called upon to analyse the outliers of society; the people like me. The people who don’t know when to say when. The people society dismisses. “you’re wrong” “stop saying that” “nobody cares what you think, you should go tell somebody that cares” “nothing is going to change so just stop talking” “we don’t care about you” “we don’t love you” But even if you acomplished these things, all the money in the world would not change the simple fact; I will forever be your superior. You can play a big game, you can talk big, you can act intelligent, you can try to impress the masses. You can get a car, you can get a house, you can get a wife who doesn’t love you, you can get a “311 Greatest Hits” CD and rip it in iTunes at 128kb/s and play it on your iPod Shuffle. You can do all these things. While you’re doing these things, I’ll be here. I’ll be improving myself. I’ll be improving the world. I’ll be improving the standard of digital entertainment. I don’t just do it for me. I do it for the people out there who don’t… Read more »

Legit question. What are your favorite bands? What are your favorite songs that are already on Rocksmith?

I myself like a wide variety of music, and given there are bands that everyone else seems to like that I am not that fond of (The Doors for example), but I don’t recall you being excited about a DLC for a while.

Surely you must like something that is on rocksmith already? Have any DLC requests of your own? You say you want good music, but what do you define as good music?

But in the end, you went back to the moronic “WE WANT GOOD MUSIC”.

The whole idea of this as a ‘grassroots movement’ is absurd. As was stated before, post your rants on Ubisoft, where there is a wider audience if you really want change.

I really doubt we get Ubisoft staffers looking at forum sites.

And again…what is good music to you? You seem to avoid this question when asked.

Here are the alternatives to rocksmith well its nothing unless you consider bandfuse being around for a few months and if you don’t support the game it will be gone in a couple of years probably anyway. Its a niche game so enjoy it and the dlc while it lasts because it wont be long before its at the bottom of some used game bin.

Exactly the Rock Band 311 pack. I know we’ve gotten packs of all Rock band songs, but not in an identical pack. I don’t think that’s happened before has it? Has it even happened between Guitar Hero and Rock Band? Not that I’m complaining, just find it interesting.

Not sure I’ll get these, Beautiful Disaster seems like it’d be fun, but I’m not so sure about the other two and I love pack discounts so I’d be hesitant to get BD on its own.
