Video: Rocksmith 2014 Edition: An All-New, Inclusive Experience

200°
25w ago - Ubisoft Senior Community Developer Mike Madavi shared a video introducing an all-new, inclusive video gaming experience dubbed Rocksmith 2014 Edition.

To quote: Rocksmith 2014 Edition is finally out today! Since we announced it at this year's E3 Conference in June, we've seen an outpouring of excitement, questions, and speculation from old fans, as well as those just hearing about Rocksmith for the first time.

Everyone wants to know what's been updated, fixed, and improved upon - all valid questions with a simple answer: Rocksmith 2014 Edition is a full-fledged sequel that has been built from the frame up to be the best, most fun, and fastest way to learn guitar or bass!

Even though the game was announced in June, our Development team at Studio SF in Ubisoft's San Francisco office has been hard at work on Rocksmith 2014 Edition for two years. The process was long, but ultimately worth it as the team took a hard look at the original Rocksmith and decidedly improved on every existing feature while dreaming up innovative new ones. In the words of Paul Cross, our Creative Director, "We set out immediately to do something different."

The entire format has been reduced to the core functionalities and experiences users want out of playing guitar - a simple menu with clear options,...
 

Ubisoft: Rocksmith 2014 Edition: The Fastest Way to Learn Guitar

50°
28w ago - Ubisoft Senior Community Developer Mike Madavi has proclaimed today that the Rocksmith 2014 Edition is indeed the fastest way to learn guitar.

To quote: Let's face it; it's hard to make something that is truly the best in its respective field - especially so in a world as populated as guitar.

When the Ubisoft team at Studio San Francisco set out to completely revamp Rocksmith, that was our goal - to make Rocksmith the unquestionable fastest and best way to learn to play guitar or bass.

It was, with no exaggeration, a massive undertaking that took years to complete despite the product's core engine already existing from the original iteration.

Now, only a month out from the release of the all-new Rocksmith 2014 Edition, we confidently feel that goal was achieved. It would be easy for us to proudly boast about all the improvements, changes, and innovations that make Rocksmith truly remarkable, but we'd rather let some familiar faces do that for us.

We let credible, established guitar players, teachers, and researchers try out Rocksmith 2014 Edition and give us their feedback.

Video: Black Rock Shooter The Game Comes to PSP on Tuesday

200°
52w ago - Today NIS America's Chris King shared a video confirming that Black Rock Shooter The Game comes to PSP on Tuesday.

Below are the details, to quote: My name is Chris King; I recently joined the awesome team here at NISA.

I'm here today to talk about Black Rock Shooter The Game, which hits PSP via PSN next Tuesday for $19.99. Shall we get started? Splendid!

Let me give you a quick rundown of the history of Black Rock Shooter. It all began as a simple illustration by renowned artist Ryohei "Huke" Fuke.

The mysterious yet appealing design of the character inspired the creation of a Black Rock Shooter song (voiced by the ever popular Hatsune Miku), an original video animation, and even an eight-episode anime series. Starting off as a single character design, it has now evolved into an explosive Japanese RPG - not bad!

Alright, let's talk story. The year is 2032 AD, and Earth has been ruthlessly assaulted by alien forces. Nineteen years of nonstop battle now threatens the very existence of humanity. The last hope for human survival is Black Rock Shooter (BRS), a heroine created solely to save planet Earth - she is the ultimate battle android.

But when she is awakened to end the battle once and for all, there are only twelve human beings left...
