Rocksmith 2014 Gamescom Roundup

BSLLV4wCMAASVbv (1)

Wow, it’s been an exciting day for Rocksmith 2014 fans both inside and outside of Gamescom! First we were treated to a new video which explained some of the new features of Rocksmith 2014 narrated and explained by who else? Paul Cross!

A few things were revealed in the video such as the fact that Riff Repeater is now integrated into the song as you play, song challenges have leaderboards, there’s some new game using “slides”, and of course the Ducks are back!

That’s not all though…

Nao and Paul decided to do an impromptu Q&A session on twitter, here are some of the results:

Christopher Woo decided to join in as well with this important tidbit!

One thing we haven’t seen so far indicated is directional strumming, could we be missing something?

Another bit of media goodness was released today as well… Some sexy new Rocksmith 2014 screenshots!

Lots of information to digest but there is

one more thing…

11 sort options for choosing a song? Huh

1) song name
2) album
3) artist
4) duration
5) tuning
6) genre
8) mastered
9) % completed
10)
11)

Just my guesses. Some help please

turns out that genre will not be a sorting option.

and i would say that it will be ,like in the old RS -- u can sort by
Year
or
arrangement (combo/single/chords)

My guess is Elephant by Tame Impala which has a nice bass line.

There’s a bit in that IGN video about 5 top improvements with rhythm arragement of Losing My Religion at about 1:12, and I you can see that some of the chordshape rectangles are lighted more on top and some are not, so it looks just like directions for strumming pattern.

Makes sense. That’s more or less how RB3 displayed strum directions.

My guess for the elephant clue would be either Cage the Elephant or Buckethead. At least I sure hope it’s Cage the Elephant or Buckethead.
