Rocksmith Remastered DLC 2/28/2017 – Variety Pack VIII

Hello Rocksmith fans!

Welcome to another mixed bag as we dive into Variety Pack VIII!

This week as previously revealed features singles from @KasabianHQ (Underdog), and the returning Steppenwolf with their acid-rock hit Magic Carpet Ride. Revealed today are two new artists to the fast approaching 1000 song Rocksmith library, @Candlebox’s Far Behind, and @TearsForFears Everybody Wants to Rule The World (Xbox AU).

Funny story about Candlebox, they were almost in Guitar Hero DLC in 2010, at least we think it almost happened…

Variety Pack VIII – $9.99 / Steam

 


There you have it, the eighth Variety Pack, which brings us to 990 total songs! Are you excited to play these four songs or this a variety you will be leaving far behind? Let us know!

I’ll have to pick up the Steppenwolf just for that awesome bass solo. I’ve been hoping for more good bass solos.

When I hear Candlebox, I think of this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zuTvPkIz7Y0

Wow, 990 songs. I’m afraid to go back and figure out just how much money I’ve spent on RS.

A maybe weird question. Has anyone else’s game gone insane recently? My guitar volume just will not take. It doesn’t have active pickups so that’s not it. I go into the tuner and it tells me my guitar volume has changed and asks if I want to restore to default. OK. Tune again. Repeat. Over and over. Switch to my active pickup guitar, same thing. Switch to a third guitar, same again. I had to give up for the day and see what I could find out. Any ideas?

In calibration is where it’s telling me about the volume of the instrument.

Well, I suggested Far Behind a long time ago… and it looks like they delivered. I am happy about this.

When you’re Born TO Be Wild, The Magic Carpet Ride is a given. I’ll see what the play through a reveal beyond that.

I say I won’t get anything, but that Tears for Fears song is one that will probably hypnotize me into buying. (My word if they had paired this with Head Over Heels and Shout, resistance would be futile.)

While this is over all a good pack, I’m going to take a pass. Ubisoft has been beating up my wallet pretty heavily since October. (additionally, there are some things I don’t miss about the 90s.)

Congrats to the fans.

It’s so cool to see candlebox they were one of the lesser known Seattle bands but that first album was really good. Rest of pack is good too

C’mon y’all. Applause is due. Am I the only Star Wars fan that caught the Easter egg here? Nice touch.

I usually change the station when Candlebox comes on the radio. I will avoid the pack just so I won’t have to hear the snippet played when cycling through songs. I will pick up the Steppenwolf and possibly the Tears for Fears track. I almost guessed “Everybody Wants…” for the 80’s pack a couple weeks ago.
