    ... really?

    Fuck.

    Well, that pretty much removes all the interest I had in online quickplay. I was hoping to play online with my wife and two friends in the UK, but like this we can't - it'll be only one of us playing with only one of them. I very much hope that this is only a temporary limitation, but it seems like the kind of limitation that wouldn't be there by design but because of technical limitations, so I'm not altogether confident.

    What? Did I misread it? It says right there:
    Please note that one instrument per console can be playing online at a time. Harmonies count as a single instrument, so vocalist duos and trios are welcome to join a band as a group!

    One guitar or one bass or one drums or one to three vocals. But no combination.

    Ubisoft bought Freestyle games. Guitar Hero IP not sold and remains with Activision.

    I am dying to know what the reason for this is.

    Probably the same reason you can't share the same profile when playing Rivals locally.

    Other option was probably "Each profile has to have their own Xbox Gold/PS Plus subscription"... but while inconvenient that might have looked better.

    Doesn't make much sense when you can coop Diablo 3 on PS4 with two people playing on one console and two more on another. Frankly, I'm leaning more towards Santa's explanation.

    Well...the thing is Diablo doesn't have any leaderboards and hoo boy the hacking. Maybe something to do with how the leaderboards handle the guest accounts?

    Alrighty, gave us a good start on the Spotlight songs. Full combo'd Brown Eyed Girl and More Than a Feeling and had a -2 run on Jane for the guitar scores.

    Going to have fun this weekend. Lots of Bowie, Deep Purple, Yes, Chicago. Hendrix, Rush, and Who to plow through.

    Oh, sure. From the sounds of it, a theme filled with songs I'd enjoy playing for the week I'm on vacation and out of state.

    Bleargh. Going to have to enjoy the beach that much more tomorrow to make up for this outrage :P

    Today and tomorrow Best Buy has Guitar Hero Live for $20 ($16 if you have GCU).

    If it had been that price over the summer I would have gone for it... but even at that price I just kinda go "meh, I have a backlog already".

    I don't know... it might be worth a try.

    Hello Rock Band thread, I'm having a problem with my Stratocaster PS4 guitar. When I turn it on, it inputs commands for about 5 seconds and then freezes, still turned on but non-functional. Has anyone encountered this before? Google has failed me.

    Replace the batteries with new ones?

    Unpaired and repaired with PS4? No cellphones, routers, etc right next to the PS4?

    I've replaced the batteries and unpaired/repaired and have a clear line to the PS4. I didn't know about the firmware update, I will look into that, thanks.

    All-Arcadian Rejects (new crew on X-Box One) is officially at silver ranking. Plenty of room left in case anyone is interested in joining. Bummer about one person online at a time for multiplayer, I guess I'll only be able to do that while my wife is at work or something.

    Move Minor Standard is on tour tonight. I know I saw at least 3 crewmates playing this evening.

    I've put up a respectable (?) 7000 XP for the night. Thought it would be a good idea to end with a simple 3 song set:

    Heard it Through the Grapevine
    Paradise by the Dashboard Light
    American Pie

    My fingers now know regret...

    Do what I do, sing it as Eric Cartman.

    And I really want to know the XP algorithm they use because I GS something like Tangled Up in Blue and get around 380XP, then I just barely 5* Child In Time and get 800XP.

    Here you go:

    Song length, difficulty chosen, instrument difficulty, and full combo all factor in.

    Yeah, from what I remember, you get the same XP/minute you play now so that you can't spam short songs to game XP

    800 xp? You sure that wasn't the first time you played that song? Sounds like you got that 1st time bonus.

    Yeah that's with the bonus (400 base, 400 bonus) but it just baffled me that barely 5 starring a song that's not much longer than the other got nearly the exact same base score.

  • quovadis13quovadis13 Registered User regular
    Child in Time is like 10 minutes long. It's significantly longer than Tangled Up in Blue so the total XP can definitely overtake it

  • BlackDragon480BlackDragon480 Bluster Kerfuffle Master of Windy ImportRegistered User regular
    For some reason Tangled Up in Blue feels a shitload longer than 6 minutes. Sooooo many 3 button chords.

    Only had time to GS 2112 on guitar, didn't get around to bass or drums. Still got 1773 XP for it though (893 in base XP, 880 bonus).

    Tried online earlier, was streaming it but couldn't post on the forums? Anyway, it works. Also it preserves people's breakneck speed, so if someone is rocking that 2.0 speed try not to look at their side of the screen lol

    Alright, getting on tonight (after a 6.1 gig update), I'll add you in. I keep forgetting to check the admin notifications, because it doesn't notify you on the main screen that there are any new notifications.

    Which... ?
