I'm interested in how it works. It can be awesome, or it can be ridiculously cheesy.

I still find the beatmatch solos to be a lot of fun. In fact, a challenging solo may be what makes a song special for me. To take that away and replace it with freeform solos is just unappealing to me. It's looking like it's optional, so I'm not insulted or anything, but it's still a feature I don't think I'll ever use... except maybe once if I need an achievement.

...that is, if I were to buy an Xbox One for RB4 in the first place. Which I wouldn't.

I'm guessing this wouldn't fly over well with Apple Corp.

What the :brosius: is going on here?

I would probably turn it off for fun solos and turn it on for skittles solos.

That's funny, Pikmin. :)

To be fair, I get why they might offer both. A drummer falling off the beat during a free-form drum fill is a lot more distracting than a guitarist falling off the beat during a guitar solo. As long as both are optional, I see no reason to hate.

LOL. I see I am not the only one who thought that those eyes were the most memorable part of the video.

As for the new solo feature... No thanks. I can only imagine the annoyance when an amazing solo like the one from Hitch a Ride comes up and instead of hearing it in all its glory I hear random solo button mashing that sounds like shit (judging from the video, the samples being used sound like shit). The thought is horrifying and is yet another thing to be disabled while playing just like drum fills and the anooying sound effects switch. If only vocal taps and BREs were allowed to be disabled as well.

I've never claimed otherwise.

If you are looking for positivity, at least the solo feature is not as lame as the new crowd interaction feature. All that time and resources spent for these new features and we cannot even get e-kit and/or online support at launch? Boo...

All that said, I still put in my pre-order today.

As an ekit user I'm bummed, but I just watched the solo demo and I'm really sold.

They should just let us make up the whole guitar part up in a song with our plastic buttons. It would be even moar awesome. Ugh, I just now imagined how brutal the last half of Free Bird would be to sit through.

Sorry, I just hate this feature.

She's cute.

That seems way complicated. I can't even do skittles charts or weird strum patterns with gaps in them. How will I master this crazy arcane system?

Don't think I could sustain 3+ years of it if we weren't having fun. The people I play with care more about the music than gimmicks. I would kick someone out if they came over and tried to play over an Iron Maiden solo with that useless new solo feature while I was singing. I've already had to ban guitar effects switch and miss sounds. Oh, and I don't let people pick whatever songs they want all the time. Needless to say, people love me.

Ooh, almost forgot the Lenny Kravitz ban.
