But that's solely because of the notation system, which is far more intuitive and natural than Rock Band's. Of course, that's because it takes up your whole screen." Is he saying RB3 has better raw gameplay and RS better notation?
tnevaker;4433318 said:i think the track listing reflects the fact that this game is geared more toward teaching new guitarists than satisfying existing guitarists. most of the songs listed are fairly basic, with simple melody lines or basic chords being repeated. there's not much challenge in that song listing for existing guitarists. certainly nothing along the lines of crazy train or a7x. and considering the wonky notation system they're using, i don't know if those songs would even translate into even a vaguely readable form on this game. maybe they are saving the more difficult songs for dlc, but you'd think there'd be at least a few challenging songs on disk. it's ironic that this is the game that can be used with ANY guitar, thus should be more appealing to experienced guitarists who would want to use their own guitars instead of buying a new one, and yet the song list has almost nothing an experienced guitarist would be very interested in playing.
I wouldn't recommend this to someone who has no interest of playing guitar,

raynebc;4440020 said:If enough of the fans complain about the auto difficulty system, there's a strong chance they'll patch it to make it optional. Or at least they will if they want to keep their customers all happy. It's probably too late for them to change it for launch.

kitlerc;4440640 said:At Best Buy it was $40 off, and you can get your guitar now instead of waiting until after you get the game. (Upon investigation, it is $25 off of a specific guitar, or $40 off any guitar priced $200 or more)
tnevaker;4440667 said:okay, i didn't remember exactly how much the BB voucher was, i just assumed it was the same. GC does have a better selection and nicer guitars though.
