Yeah it's going to be terrible as always. People are still jerks, robots are powered on alcohol, it's dirty, the aliens are taking my jobs, and Nixon is prez.
I'm not a huge PC gamer anymore and I never had any hands on experience with the Steam Controller but I really do not see the point. I've read about ergonomic issues with the button placement and that the right touch pad is down right terrible for FPS (albeit without setting up the sensitivity properly). Overall the Steam Controller doesn't entice me to switch from keyboard and mouse for my PC games, I wouldn't buy it.
I haven't seen a full episode of Spongebob in a while, mainly because I don't bother checking out Nickelodeon anymore. Most of my Spongebob intake now comes from Youtube Poop since it's a popular source material, even then they prefer using older clips.
Bud, AC/DC and Rush concerts still sell out and there are a crap ton of contemporary rock bands today.
and many more.
Neglected privileges and freedoms in first world areas, even I forget these and it makes me feel guilty. The only way to stop it is to be grateful for what you have and make the most out of it.
I like how electronic is mixed in with dubstep while we have distinctions such as "rock & roll" and "rockabilly" make it on the list.
I just chose alternative since it seemed to be the most broad option.
I don't really like 50's music but I got like a Beat Happening vibe from the song. The vocals were pretty unintelligible so I couldn't really make out the lyrics but it had some nice melody. The main riff is fine but some of the guitar ad-libs were really bad, the improv thing at the end I felt was either unnecessary or just not well thought out, not to mention your bending technique could use work. Keep working on it, if you add some drums it'll probably be more punchier, I do agree that you should keep the instrumentation basic, I personally never liked Phil Spector's wall of sounds with 30 instruments playing at once.
MGS2's scoring is my favourite, the main theme is classic and the ambient IDM tracks that play throughout all the indoor areas are like Warp Records quality material. I really want some rapper to sample the main menu music as well. Also the Dead Cell theme is freaking killer.
Gurlukovich soldiers in Metal Gear Solid 2 because I like fooling around with them. Fultoning soldiers in MGSV is cool and all but holding up Gurlukovich's men, making them shake their body, immobilizing them, and purposely letting their comrades find them in their crippled state was so entertaining.
This seems to be a mostly metalcentric thread so I say my favourite heavy rock bands that I've been listening to at the moment:
-Slayer: I never got into the big 4 of thrash metal as a kid but I got into Slayer recently and I thoroughly enjoy their early material.
-Code Orange Kids: Some hardcore punk stuff, they're not really to stand out from a lot of their contemporaries but Kurt Ballou's production is killer on their albums.
-Baroness: Just got into them recently, some good songwriting.
-Ghost: Finally jumped onto the Ghost fan train, good old metal-camp stuff.
-Converge: Metalcore if you can call it that, some of the best metal production ever, Ballou being the guitarist of the band is also a monster producer.
-Death: Some old school death metal. Good stuff.
-KEN Mode: Sludge metal with a bit of noise, really snarky vocal deliver.
Minecraft is probably the most obvious choice for me, not really because I got bored with it, mainly I just found the game too time consuming for satisfying gameplay. Not to mention Mojang's limited technical and conceptual abilities despite their resources were really starting to test my patience, I could no longer defend the choices being made for the game. Although I really find it funny when people in Upper Forums say that if Notch was brought back he'll reform Minecraft back to it's former glory, the guy has become one of the biggest sellouts in our time as well as a very novice developer in my opinion.
At this point I like saying Minecraft was the game that knock out COD and successfully took its place of the annoying lame-o title with a league obnoxious facecam-LPers playing. Minecraft was once the refreshing indie title that had everyone baffled at what to do, now it's the game that hyperactive 9 year olds go berserk for.
Some other choices are a lot of the THQ licensed games that came out in the 2000's, I won't list any specific one but if you played any Nickelodeon title from that time you'll know what I'm talking about. I find Super Mario Galaxy overrated but it's overall still a good game.
