Rock Band 4 instructional ‘vidlet’ released

Guitar games are back.



Rock Band 4

Guitar games are back. 

And although Guitar Hero Live may be strutting around like a stadium filling rock-star we’re secretly rooting for Harmonix’s Rock Band 4 to provide this fall’s axe-grinding thrills.

There’s something of the indie-artist about Rock Band’s return. The slightly left-field playlist certainly helps, as does some of the more off-the-wall marketing efforts that are accompanying the game’s release.


Here, for instance, we have a new ’80s themed instruction ‘vidlet’ which features non-other than, erm,  “Kool” Terry Terman. The vidlet details some of the new features found in Rock Band 4, including Freestyle Guitar Solos, Freestyle Vocals, and more.

Is it good? Is it bad? We’ll let you be the judge of that, but our anticipation for the game remains undiminished.

Pre-order Rock Band 4 from Amazon now.

We have a favour to ask

Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
