Rocksmith – Today’s the Day

Posted by Rampant Coyote on November 22, 2016

I’ve been swamped by the day job worse than… well, pretty much ever, when I wasn’t traveling (traveling comes next week). So I’m sorry the blog has gotten a bit irregular of late. My word count that would otherwise go to the blog has been going into NaNoWriMo, and I’ve only managed to squeak out a few hundred words per day the last week. That’s about all I’ve had time for between the time I get home (often after my wife is asleep) and when I collapse into bed myself an hour later. It’s been like that.

rsplusguitarHowever, the system is on a truck right now, and I’ll be following it on Sunday, but in the meantime, I have some time off this week. HUZZAH! Among other things, I’ve finally been able to play Rocksmith again after about a week-long hiatus. Ya’ll know I’m a fan. It’s what I wished Guitar Hero could be back in the day. It makes practice a lot more fun and effective.

And I just discovered that Amazon has a sale going on TODAY for the new Rocksmith Remastered Edition…  including versions bundled with Epiphone guitars. So if you (or the person you are wanting to get this for) don’t have an electric guitar… this’ll do. I’m sure it’s a low-end starter guitar… but hey, these days those are a lot better than they were even a decade ago. Good enough for practice purposes. I had an old 90s low-end Squier I used for a while. After a year, I’d finally gotten good enough that the limitations of the guitar were worth about 0.5% of my score.  That, and I really wanted a 22nd fret, and a whammy bar. 🙂 (Not that I use the whammy bar like… ever. I’m lucky I remember where I put it.

Even without the guitar, the price of the game today is about the same price as buying just the cable by itself, so it’s a fantastic deal. Now’s the day to pick it up if you have been sitting on the fence!

If you were wondering if it works… well, here’s before:
