I own it and its shit, I wish I hadn't wasted the money. The tracklist for the career mode is fucking awful, not sure if you looked it up yet. The premium list is better but you don't get to play infinitely, its a really shitty set up. Also disliking Rock band 4. Shitty set list too, bunch of crappy DLC and its missing all the classics. I think Amplitude is more fun but it's all original tracks this time around, which may be a plus depending on who you ask.
I'd recommend it if you're into that sort of thing.
If you're a hardcore rhythm game guy it might not be your sort of thing though, there's all sorts of weird shit, but it's still pretty fun.
I'm the second guy and yeah first guy was right about the track list. You might want to look it up because it is pretty fucking bad. But hey maybe you like trash, definitely check that out first if you're interested.
And Amplitude is pretty rad.
>check the list
>literally three songs from before the year 2000
Goddamn, playing muh dadrock was one of my favorite parts of Guitar Hero, how do you fuck up this bad?
>bunch of crappy DLC
Hence why the price is so low. PSN has dozens of of high priced DLC songs.
The on disc was good but not great. People shit on GHTV which is guitar hero's MTV function. If there was any problem with it, it's small. I love the shows, the micro transactions are never in the way at all, and as you play you earn more than enough to play any song you want as many times you want. If it is seriously a problem then fucking shill out cash but there's no need to bitch about not having enough to play your favorite song 50 times in a row.
i'm glad i learned to play an instrument when i was young and didn't get sucked into this retard genre that bears absolutely no similarity to actual music
like how does it feel to rack up hundreds of hours in one of these games and realize you could have put those hours into a real instrument
Not defending at all. I never had to pay because you have to do is play the damn game, level up a few times, and boom you have a ton of plays. That's how micro transactions should work. Not hinder your game or block you from access. Their system works because it allows you to experience music you haven't heard of or play new songs from a favorite genre you like. It's fun and doesn't force you or tempts you at all to shill out.
Live mode is fun but it's a gimmick that gets old by the time you're finished with it. Some songs are really good but most are just downright questionable
though it's still better than RB4's song list though not by much
TV mode is godtier that gets updated every week. It has microtransaction bullshit in a way though so be aware of that.
Go be faggots somewhere else.
With 2 channels and a third on the way, different music will always be playing with each channel not playing the same genre at the same time
at least I have never experienced that. So if a pop song is playing I can just jump on the other channel instantly and play System of a Down. It's a great idea to quickly change channels on the fly.
>third on the way
Source? I believe it but I need proof of this.
>tfw you just want to play dadrock but you have to sit through the shittiest metal possible first
BUT IT'S TIME TO BREAK THE CYCLE
It was mentioned in one of Activision's interviews about the future of GHTV
I am in class right now so no YouTube til afterbut that is what the plays are for. Go play your dad rock once you go through the tutorial. You earn enough to play through most of your dad rock.
Or stop complaining about playing a genre and experience other genres. Then you can go through dad rock endlessly afterwards. Expand your tastes anon. Barely any songs in GHTV are shitty metal dubstep pop songs.
Something small for my hands and my fucked up wrist.
Basically both Guitar Hero Live and RB4 have shit set lists if you don't listen to pop music 24/7.
I find that the DLC for RB4 is decent, but w/e. They have added some shit for free to RB4 and are apparently planning more free shit in the way of modes and MP possibly.
Guitar Hero Live is pure sham garbage forcing you to basically pay everyday.
Rocksmith is red pill tier where you actually learn to play guitar and still have shit loads of fun during the repetitive process of learning a real instrument.
The problem with the setlist/New DLC is that they used up all the good material in previous games or DLC.
You can still get all of the previous DLCs/Rock Band 3 setlist.
See the thing is, I have never really liked the music much to begin with. It's all mostly mainstream shit that I've heard 100 times before. If the song is fun to play then I really don't give two shits.
My question is are the songs fun to play?
With RB4 they're trying to avoid the over-saturation of Rhythm Games on the last gen and instead are going to update RB4 with all of the missing features (Playlists, Practise Mode, maybe online Multiplayer)
You know what dude, enjoy your terrible game. I don't know how many times you need to be told not to waste $50 on a piece of utter shit, but apparently it's more times than I'm willing to commit to.
>are the songs fun to play?
They're alright, although the Story mode thing tends to repeat songs quite a bit if you don't have any additional songs.
Will they update it to not suck? Why not build upon RB3 and rebrand it?
>Trying to find a cheap copy of RB3 to export songs (£12 for licence)
>Can't find it cheaper than £20 online
>No local stores have it
One of the reasons why RB4 is a bit limited is that they no longer have the funding from MTV Games, which was why they went to Mad Catz to distribute the game.
>play rock band 1-3 everyday, buy multiple instruments twice, spend over $2000 on DLC
>don't even bother looking at RB4 because it's shit with no multiplayer and bad music
I own all the guitar hero and rock band games and even I wouldn't touch the new ones.
Why not just have fun while learning a real skill? These "controllers" will last you a lifetime.
It's fun, but I agree with everyone else - the career tracklist is shit. It's just the same songs that the radio has played to death in the past year or so. People can shit on dadrock all day, but it's more fun to play in these kinds of games than say, Mumford & Sons. GHTV has a pretty well-rounded list of songs, though, and just playing whatever is up on the channels is often enjoyable enough just because you don't know what you'll get to play next.
The career mode's presentation is neat if you can get past playing 40 songs that all sound nearly the same. The live-action experience is pretty cool to watch and they did a good job putting it together. GHTV generally has you playing with the highway over the song's music video. Because of this approach, you don't get a decently mixed version of the song that only distorts the guitar if you mess up, rather it dampens the entire song and there's no way to turn off the annoying "you fucked up noises." But you shouldn't be hearing those anyway if you're good enough, right?
The changes to the controller and the notes make it interesting and just different enough to make veterans of the series face a new challenge, though it gets easier once you make it past the initial hump of memorizing where the buttons are. I had a strange issue with mentally wanting the white notes to be on the top of the controller and the black on the bottom for some reason, which I eventually got past. Also I suck at bar chords for some reason. The controller itself is nice enough, but I've had issues with the buttons sticking a bit, and a lot of people apparently have had similar issues. Also, be sure that you have controller vibration on on your console settings or the buttons won't respond in the game aside from in the menus.
I really need to start playing my bass again.
I've neglected my practice for a few years though.
Mainly because I have no one to perform with. I just can't muster the motivation to do things solo.
