Last night was the first time I've watched the show this year...and I picked the worst night possible to start.  Queen has been one of my favorite bands for fucking forever, and none of those singers even came close to doing those songs any justice.  That guy who massacred "We Will Rock You" should be drug out into the street and shot.  The bald motherfucker who sang "Innuendo" should be flogged.

The chick who sang "Bohemian Rhapsody" gets a thumbs up from me, though.  It took balls to get up there and sing that. :P

I also didn't put this in the Music and Books section because I thought it belonged here since it's about all of these console games.


You thought wrong.

That sounds pretty interesting, even though I'm not really a fan of orchestral VGM.  I wonder what they're gonna play from WoW, though.  I've been playing it regularly for the last month, and I can't so much as hum a tune from that game. :P

Now that I've been abandoned by the people I play with, I've been less and less inclined to quest and grind and more inclined to do nothing but run instances.  I should have been doing this all along, because it's great fun.

I ran Scarlet Monastery Sunday night (save for the graveyard), and proceeded to motherfucking rack up on caster gear.  The fact that there were no other cloth wearers in the group helped considerably.  Illusionary Rod, Mantle of Doan, and Whitemane's Chapeau, all in one night.  Can't complain about that. :P

Tonight I ran Razorfen Downs for the first time.  I enjoyed doing this one, even if it was a pain in the ass for a non-mounted player to get to easily.  And it was rather easy:  we ran it with four people, none of whom were out of the level range. :P  Got a semi-sexy Deathmage Sash out of it.  I was hoping to see Robes of the Lich drop, but some gay plate helm dropped instead. :P

Holy fuck, Suikoden V is fantastic.  I don't think I've said that in this thread yet, so there it is. :P

Code:
I just finished completing the Big Hole and recruited Eresh.  Next on the agenda is a little levelling session before the next army battle.


And...I just traded a unit of gold and silver to the trader for 900,000 potch.  I swear, that had to be a bug. :P

Awesome news.  This is far and away the game I'm looking forward to the most this year.

If I could afford to casually buy something like that, holy shit I would. Sounds good to me. :P


Indeed.  If you got the cash, then why not?  There's better things out there to get riled up about.  There's way too much foie gras in that thing to make me consider eating one, though. :P

1.  You could have put this in a better place.

2.  This is a good time to remind everyone that piracy talk is bad, and will get you banned with the utmost swiftness.

Of course, there are plenty of freeware games out there.  Feel free to link this fellow to any of those.

My old band's singer turned me on to a new band today:  Starbreaker.  I haven't listened to this cd in its entirety yet, but I like what I've heard so far.  The only real problem I have with it is that the singer's trying WAY too fucking hard to be Russel Allen.

Angra is another possibility, but I don't personally care for them.

EDIT:  And Fates Warning, of course.  They peaked quite a while back, but their early and mid-career stuff is nice.

EDIT #2:  I know what I don't recommend:  Queensryche's new sequel to "Operation:  Mindcrime".  Jesus Christ.  I feel robbed, and I got it for free.

You need to listen to some Opeth.


That's true, but would you really classify them as prog metal?  I don't...I don't classify them as anything, really.  Opeth is Opeth. :P

But if Opeth counts, there's a band out there called Another Messiah.  They remind me of a cross between Tiamat and Opeth, particularly in terms of vocals...and with an oboe.  That's right. :P

You can hear their shit on their website.

Dade's a warrior, Dagg's a priest, Tim is a rogue and war depending on the situation (as in, whether we want to run something legitimately or be powered through with a level 60 :P), and I am the greatest mage on the entire server. :P

I don't see Ayreon on that list.  But since I see Star One, I'll assume that you just forgot to add them. :P

I'll put a little thought into this and get back to you.

EDIT #1:  Adagio might be the sort of band you're looking for.  I particularly like the album "Underworld".

I managed to finish Gnomer today.  The only thing the damn boss dropped was one of those charged gear things.  I wasn't real happy about that, but I got halfway to the next level, so I can't complain too much. :P

Up next, Scarlet Monastery.  Which is good, because it's my favorite. :P

I thought it was the best RPG of the year, but I only played two enjoyable RPGs that year:  it and Shadow Hearts:  Covenant.

The combat made the game for me; in fact, I thought the story and characters were pretty lackluster, but the sheer fun of fighting overruled the negatives.  I enjoyed the game overall...I just doubt I'll be playing it again anytime soon.

Pain of Salvation - Idioglossia

Good shit.  It's been way too long since I last listened to "The Perfect Element".

God is dead and won't be there to save you fucking sheeps!


Sheep, not sheeps.

I fully agree with most of your other ranting, though.
