    PAPER TRAILS on a mountain

DCUO has one of the better character/class customizations of a MMORPG. Alas their stubbornness to allow PS3 and PC users play together really splits their player base. I actually like their capped level system, where level 30 is the highest, but you keep leveling to increase your combat rating.

However their combat system is pretty bland in PvE and even worse in PvP. Such much promise with no execution.

Well, all of the videos are of her "playing" but not actually playing her violin. She has gone on live tours and "the show" is her dancing, the music is there to complement her dancing, but not the other way around. Lindsey is a very talented musician and I commend her for her ability to get people interested into a classic string instrument.

However the violin is this beautiful string instrument that is the only instrument that can be named "First Chair, First Violin" of an orchestra. That means this is the conductor's "right hand man" despite sitting directly to the left of the conductor. There are only a few people that can hold this position and the orchestra is really there to accompany the first violin to bring out the its immaculate tone for the melody. That is how important this string instrument is.

The violin has this perfect balance that sits in this sound range that allows it to hit high pitched notes at high speeds and can still bring its melody back to a low if it wanted to. This balance is the reason why an orchestra is centered around the violins, they are the source of all that makes the melody and the rest of the orchestra is there to complete it.

I am speaking strictly in terms of the classical violin and I do so because it is an instrument of history. Its purpose was to be classical, not artsy in dupstep and the likes. Sure the violin has made its way into jazz, folk and fiddle music, but those genres do not bring out the purpose of the violin.

Lindsey's music is her own take on how to implement the violin into the modern age of music. That is the problem, the violin is not meant to be modern. Let it be this old perfect instrument of the past. Let it shine where it shines best and not hold it back by trying to fuse with other genres.

And of course classical music just doesn't click with people and that's a much bigger problem than the one I have with Lindsey Sterling's music :D


www.youtube.com/watch?v=sfH5c93kqgw


Fun fact about me. I was trained to be a classical violinist, alas because I didn't give a shit about it, I went nowhere in it. I can still play (terribly) and I can still sight read sheet music. My favorite part of being musically trained in the violin was being able to play the music of the Final Fantasy games.

Fuck that shit. Klezmer fiddling or get the Fuck out.

I kind of want to play DCUO again.

Maybe I should go to sleep so that feeling goes away.


DCUO ain't too bad for being free-to-play. I preferred City of Heroes, tho. RIP

Played a ton of Ni no kuni all weekend. Lovin it.

Also played the MGRR demo a few times. I'm getting pretty good at the blade-cutting. Whys it and Game of Thrones season 2 gotta hit on the same week making me choose?

Easy choice:
Buy MGR:R, take Game of Thrones: Clash of Kings out of the library and read it.

Also, the FFX HD remaster (the word is important, it's not a remake, it's like the rest of the HD collections -- same game it always was, ported and upscaled with trophies). The footage I saw just now looks fine -- the models are relatively clear, the anti-aliasing is good so there's not a lot of jaggies, etc. Plus keep in mind too, that if you're looking at screenshots, they may be from the Vita version. In that case, they don't scale to viewing on a PC very well at all. If you go watch the conference from last night, they were showing it off on Vita and I thought it looked fine.

That sounds better. The pics i saw must have been from the Vita version. I still wish they would have included X-2.

I personally have only played a few of the HD upscaled ports from last gen (Tomb Raider, ZOE, Beyond G & E). So far, I haven't been too impressed. Are there any that have really turned out exceptional when upscaled? I just don't see much improvement.

Metal Gear HD. Though I liked the look of the MGSHD on the PSVita more so than on the PS3/X360. The Ico Collection is pretty top notch in offering very high frame rate.

I wouldn't consider Klezmer fiddling apart of the "fiddle" genre.

Yeah, the combat was my only real problem with it besides the horrible lockups I've experienced on PS3.

It'll be amazing. Can't wait to fuckin' dodge lightning strikes forever.

They wanted to put the better FF out, can't blame them. I think they're waiting till they hit bankruptcy to put out a 7 HD remake.

Man, I went to GameStop earlier to trade stuff to pay off my Rising and I was able to sweet talk the chick to stack trade bonuses for me so I got 90% trade boost, paid off Rising, half of Injustice (unsure of whether or not I'll get the ultimate edition), and a little less than half of Bioshock Infinite.

Yeah, the character stuff is what I really liked about it. I also thought that making it more action game esque with different fighting moves was pretty cool too, but maybe I'm in the minority on that.

I also like to fly around.
