Have you ever played one of those plastic toys? You know those toys that you jammed so hard on with a rubber band to master Through the Fire and The Flames.. and those baby plastic toys broke within months due to shredding 5 colored buttons for Guitar Hero? Well yea, you had a dream didn't you? A dream that you could intentionally smash that piece of crap plastic and pick up a solid piece of wood.. You know.. Wood with strings, tuning pegs, and.. real wood. Guess what.. Ubisoft had the same dream.. But unlike you.. they made it a reality.. and here it is, Rocksmith 2014! Rocksmith had came out in late 2011 and was a game that you had a simple cable plugged into the guitar in one end.. and the other end of the cable going into your computer or console. The game was meant for anyone of any skill. But for people who do not know how to play guitar, this was an amazing teaching device. 3 years later Ubisoft released a new Rocksmith.. Also known as Rocksmith 2014. This jamming game was a kick A** version of their original game with improvements to almost everything from visuals to lag compensation. This is a dream come true. At first I thought it was a big gimmick.. but only a month later I already felt like a true rockstar. I went from not knowing how to tune a guitar to knowing how to play Chop Suey by System of a Down. And if you bought this game.. some of you may be wondering.. "Um. How did you get Chop Suey? I don't see that in the game.. I also don't see it in the DLC store. I am very confused.." Well let me help you out: CDLC (or Custom Downloadable Content). This is content created by the community (Not to be confused with Steam's built in Community Workshop).. There are many videos out there on Youtube and plenty of guides people have created on both the internet and Steam that explain how to do this. Please remember this is NOT official Ubisoft material! Ubisoft has allowed this to be done but they do not endorse it. Remember this is not a work around to Ubisofts offical released DLC you buy through the Steam store. That is considered copyright and is not allowed! But anyways back onto the game, Rocksmith 2014 is an amazing game. It does not matter if you are Van Halen or some little boy from Germany who has made his way to the United States with very little money and nothing but a computer and a guitar but has no knowledge of how to shred! There is a skill level for everyone! You will never regret this purchase, as long as you want to play guitar and are willing to buy a Guitar and Rocksmith 2014. You are all set. (Please remember if you buy the digital version of Rocksmith / Rocksmith 2014 you must own the OFFICIAL licensed USB - 1/4 Cable Rocksmith sells. Third party adapters will not work. The cables work cross platform.. so the same cable you buy for Xbox360 will work on PS3 and PC and vice versa). Do I need to say more? Buy it!
