You’ll Never Shine If You Don’t Glow

It looks like there was a bit of an oversight when “All Star” was being playtested before being released as DLC earlier this week. See, if you happen to get the video shoot venue, as I did for my FC session, the game locks in on a single camera for the entire song, rather than cutting between all the available angles. It isn’t too terrible if you happen to lock into a wide shot that shows multiple band members (which is luckily what I ended up with on my highest-scoring run), the end result is boring, but serviceable. However, it’s another story entirely when all you’re seeing for the whole song is the drum heads (but not the drummer), or the bassist’s strumming hand (plus upward angle shot of bassist’s nostrils somewhere in the corner)! Mind you, this particular glitch doesn’t occur if you end up in a stage venue. Even so, someone at Harmonix is probably kicking themselves over this right now, don’tcha think?
