I plead ignorance on the high school thing.  I don't even remember what I was googling, but that photo of her came up and I decided to share.  She is just stunningly beautiful.

Yeah... because what matters is the name of the band, not the music they play.   :P

You owe it to yourself to check out EndeverafteR.  Their guitar work is just sick.  They have a MySpace page, but the videos on NGTV are better... well worth the pain-in-the-ass it is to find them there.

Sure, it'd be nice for Sony to have it.  But they'd have to be pretty stupid to pay $50 million for it.

I absolutely loved Oblivion.  I sunk at least 100 hours into it.  I played every side quest.  But I'm not going to drop the cash for Shivering Isles.  I haven't touched the game in months, and really am not that interested in picking it up again.

But hey, believe what you want.

Seeing how I haven't purchased any of the DLC offered for any of the other games I own... ah-yup.

I've posted a few times lamenting the dearth of even passable rock music on the radio the past few years.  Over the course of the last month or so, I've seen some signs of hope!  Three bands have really struck a chord me:

Airbourne - I've heard one of their songs a few times, "Too Much, Too Young, Too Fast."  The first thing I thought was "This sounds like old AC DC."  Even the way the guitars are configured.  The lead sounds like Angus Young's lead.  The rhythm guitar sounds like AC DC's rhythm guitar.  But it's good.

EndeverafteR - I heard "I Wanna Be Your Man" and was just blown away.  Yeah, the lyrics are caveman stupid, and the thing is totally derivative, but it just totally rocks!  It's just fun, hard, bluesy, funky fun.  And the video of "Baby, Baby, Baby" has hot chicks in schoolgirl outfits making out (there's even an uncensored cut on NGTV)... better than all the whining that's been passed off as rock of late.  What impresses me most is the guitar work... really just amazing, skilled stuff.   ;D

Black Tide - I heard them for the first time driving home this morning, and color me impressed.  Haven't really had the chance to look up much yet.  But very promising.

So is rock about to rock again?

Yeah, I still don't understand that move my Microsoft.  They spent $50 million to get a 10-hour add-on quest that won't even be available for 6 months.  You'd think for $50 million they could have had the content ready on day one so it could be used as an actual selling point.  Now it's like... "And 6 months from now you'll be able to dust off this game that you haven't touched in forever and play it for another 10 hours... for only $19.95!!"  I don't know, maybe they're hoping it'll push consoles over Christmas.

Anybody got any fantasy recommendations?  With Robert Jordan dead, Sword of Truth finished, and the next Song of Fire and Ice months if not years off, I don't have squat.  I'm looking for something complex and adult.  If you've read either of the latter two series, you know what I'm talking about.

I wish I could say it felt that way.  I have a lot of good friends at RS who I can't chat with anymore.  That is the Vintage Community over there, and I'm shut out of it.  All because I was the one willing to say what needed to be said to the face of the 800 pound gorilla... to enlighten through satire.

I'd rather not go more into it.  I'm hoping it'll blow over at some point, and that Phil will see fit to reinstate me.  And if I say too much here it'll just stir up more bad blood and extend the process.

Holy freakin' Hell... Sony goes to the mattresses!

Sony is releasing a 40-Gig Grand Theft Auto 4 bundle in the UK and Australia at no additional cost over the standard 40-Gig console!  That's just brutal.  For people who don't already own a console, which do you choose?  PS3 with Blu-ray and GTA4, or 360 with el-zilcho?

Well played, Sony.  Well played.

I picked up a DualShock3 earlier this week.  It rumbles.  It's nice.  Can't wait to play MGS4 with it.   ;D

The PS3 thread here, dormant since last October, has had 26 new posts since that op-ed piece was posted.


No coincidence at all.   ;)

And it'll be obsolete in a year and a half.   ;)

I vastly prefer keyboard and mouse for FPS games.  Before Resistance 2 and Killzone 2 come out for the PS3 I'll probably end up investing in a Bluetooth keyboard & mouse.

Check out what you get if you buy the DELUXE Metal Gear Solid bundle...

Limited edition gun metal gray finish.  It makes me wish I didn't already own one.
