Well, the video keeps screwing up about 2/3rds through so I can't see all of it, but I have 2 comments.
I'm glad they kept the character creator. That would have been a deal breaker for me. I hope they keep the options I use for my current band.
I must be half blind or something but I can't really see the huge jump in graphic quality they are talking about. Maybe it's because it's a video, maybe it's because I'm not seeing it side by side with the RB3 graphics. Or maybe it just is too subtle a difference for to me make out. I just hope that 1. The "Miranda" sunglasses aren't up on my character's forehead with the eyebrows sticking through, and 2. the skinny jeans don't have a weird "WTF" crotch area, like in RB3.
Also, in the live stream, they mentioned having some info on the tour mode this week. What happened to that, eh?
Yeah, I was shocked to hear her say that they originally weren't going to have a character creator. What the hell were they thinking?
I agree about the graphics. I can tell the textures are higher res than previous games but it's certainly not the leap in fidelity I was expecting. The animations don't look particularly different either, which is odd considering the game supposedly runs at 60fps. Certainly doesn't look like it at this stage of development.
