Over time, my leanings have gone more towards Rock instead of R&B, Pop, and/or Rap, but I do still like listening to songs of those genres when I find them. I listen to pretty much anything that isn't modern Country (Johnny Cash is still cool, after all), so that ranges from Bubblegum Pop [Barbie Girl] to Death Metal [What a Horrible Night to Have a Curse], and everything in between that. My Spotify Playlist is a trip and a half, man!
Man you sound like my brother. He'll listen to just about anything including stuff from like the 1930's and such. XD

*Turns slowly to Robert Johnson, then back to Moony* I don't see the comparison, myself.

So I just discovered there's a website called Heardle, which functions like Wordle but with music instead. Have you heard of it before or think you'd try your hand at it?

I had not, and I actually would not play it. The problem is, outside of my selection of songs, I am absolutely TERRIBLE at identifying music, especially popular music that actually, you know, saw chart success or people would know. Like, for example, I would not be able to guess a single artist that's in the Billboard top 10 right now, outside of a lucky fluke guess ("Is Ed Sheeran still popular?") Give me songs on my list, however, and I'll be like "Oh, it's this!"

Ah. Yeah, unfortunately it doesn't seem to limit what songs it picks from. I know some people have made alternate versions of it which might have something you'd want to try your hand at though: https://nerdschalk.com/heardle-variation...-can-play/

There is also a Sonic Heardle which isn't listed, and a Shinee one too so that list isn't exhaustive but it was the best I found for now.

To answer the questions in order: Yes, I will be getting it. My pre-order fell through, so I had to make a deal with the devil to get it, but it should be here soon. I have no opinions on it, yet. I will probably not be doing a video on it any time soon (still need to get off my ass and do the DAO video...)

That sucks about your pre-order @Maniakkid25. How'd it fall through though? I wouldn't expect a store to have issues getting regular edition copies of the game. Unsure

Also I noticed you playing it on Steam so I'm curious, what do you like better: Rocksmith or Guitar Hero?

Rock Band *is shot*

No, but seriously, the comparison isn't fair. Guitar Hero and Rock Band are rhythm games designed to be simplified versions of their instruments in order to facilitate a fun game, much like DDR. Rocksmith, however, is a simulator designed to teach you how to actually PLAY a guitar (or bass). How effective it is at that is debatable, but that's what it is meant to do.

True, but you could still prefer the simpler approach overall compared to the simulation one, or vice versa.

For the sake of a like to like comparison then, although I get the feeling you already indirectly answered it, Rock Band or Guitar Hero?
Also, do you think there's a place for that type of game to make a comeback or do you think the genre still needs a timeout?
