Rocksmith: The Thrill Is NOT Gone with latest Blues DLC pack
Rocksmith has a great premise. Unlike previous guitar games where players basically tap on a piece of plastic as they “play” a song displayed on the screen, Rocksmith actually turns any real electric guitar into an input device for its on-screen display. Revolutionary concept. Now, players can actually learn real guitar playing from playing a video game.
The downside of such guitar games is that you eventually run out of songs. Even if there are songs available, they may not be the ones you like. Also, they may not be the genre of music you like. What’s the point of downloading a heavy metal pack when you’d like to play reggae? Or downloading a rock pack when you want to play the blues? If you are a blues fan, you are in luck. The developer of Rocksmith, Ubisoft, has released the Blues Pack DLC. This pack adds three solid blues track to your guitar game’s roster of songs. The pack comes with “The Thrill is Gone” by no other than legendary blues guitarist B.B. King, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Albert King’s “Born Under a Bad Sign,” and “Soul Man” rendered by the Blues Brothers. It looks like this DLC dropped just before the “thrill goes out” for blues fan looking for solid tracks in an otherwise rock-filled game song roster. The DLC is available now at Xbox Live and PSN. The pack comes at a very modest price of $3 per song.
