So, you'd bury it?


Oh, I’d bury it alright. And she’d never recover.

If only that were the case. Instead, I’m back home and about to fire up Mark of the Ninja. Sadly not quite the same sensation.

Going to have to not be PC and say, I’d do her.

Hopefully they're better in person, this was about the only positive I had when they played the VGAs or whatever it was.

No, pretty sure it was free for all by mistake. Only worked on consoles though. Had a friend try on xbox.com no luck.

I looked it up on the Microsoft store while logged in. it showed up that I owned it, gave me the option to install it and it worked. I haven’t booted the game up though to see if there is some error though.

Vocals weren’t mixed right at first but after that I thought they were great. Have a listen...

BTW, they do have at least two songs in FH4 and believe they had a few in FH3 as well.

There's only 1 in FH4.  2 songs in FH3, 1 in FH2.

Ah, thought I had heard two when driving around in FH4. Actually would have made sense being partly in Scotland and all. 🙂

can someone tell me the control scheme for Rogue Stormers.  And if there is an option to remap buttons.

I was surprised they only got the 1, since there were 2 in FH3 and they had a new album out.  But I had Horizon Pulse cycle through 3-4 times this past weekend, just in there the once.  And I just finished the FH3 Forzathon, had Bury It and Clearest Blue cycle through.  Damn T-Rex Tear Up in the Hot Wheels DLC.  Or more like the AI cars that can take those circles super tight at full speed while I'm stuck drifting out to wider turns.  Usually drop to an A class if I have trouble, but the championship was for Hyper Cars, and I'd already done 2 of 3 races, so I wasn't going to quit and blueprint an easier one.

Nice! Guess my friend must have tried after it was fixed.

It's a twin stick shooter, so left stick is movement and right stick is firing direction. The left trigger is jump and the right trigger is secondary fire. You can change the controls somewhat and set the A button to jump but the default controls work really well. It's a really addicting game.

Daily reminder to check the Redeem tab for the 50% off Xbox $5 card. I didn't get the offer until today, so try again if you haven't been able to get it earlier. It's in its own box separate from the usual Xbox gift card option, and the corner of it has it marked as a Hot Deal.

Kinda, sorta, only because that assault lawsuit kinda puts a huge damper on the music now.

Forza stream at 12 and 6 PST. Should be the same give-a-aways at both times.

 

Gears stream at 5PM PST.

Thanks for this! My son's account didn't have the offer and he was pretty bummed. It's there now, though.

Never heard of them.  Thought you were referring to

Pretty sure Chvrches have helped some women I know realize they were less straight than they thought, and I'll leave it at that. I really dig their 2nd record, until the other singer comes in. His voice is so boring by comparison, it kills the momentum of the album.

Yeah. A lot of my clinical background is helping survivors of assault, so that hits a little too close to home. CC used to be some of my favorite study/productivity work, though.

 

An artist of the same vein that some of you might dig is Assemblage 23, it's a one-man act from a guy who used to be a guitar tech for Depeche Mode. 

 

Spoiler

 

That record and Bruises are really good.

 

Also, Davey Havok's dance party side project Blaqk Audio is a guilty pleasure, their 3rd album is especially good.

I'll add my 2 cents about CHVRCHES. They did a really good cover of the band 1975 song Somebody Else for a UK radio show called Live Lounge. There is also an interesting article about how when someone played the original song 1975 song sped up it sounded like CHVRCHES, which people think was part of the reason they covered it.

 

https://www.spin.com...the-1975-cover/

 

I am also thinking about trading in my COD Advance Warfare 1 TB limited edition console to GameStop for an X. It says the base value was $90 on the website. So does that mean i will get a little more than the $200 for it? I picked up a TCL 4k TV a few weeks back and wanted to take advantage of it. Trying to decide if I should wait til BF. But I cant see the X going for below $400 with some sort of game bundle for BF.

For Chvrches, Martin does lead vocals on maybe one or two songs an album and I think he only has one song he does in the third album and does one duet kinda song and one full song and that's it. Though yeah, he kinda does disrupt the flow, but he's hardly there overall.

 

Also I love AFI (well, slightly less as time goes on with each album), but for some reason I couldn't get into Blaqk Audio. Then again I got into Greg Puciato of Dillinger Escape Plan's super dancey and synth heavy side project, Black Queen and I enjoyed the hell out of their first album so maybe I should revisit that since I kinda didn't know what to expect.

AFI is doing their best Cure impression, putting out 2-3 mediocre albums and then putting out a great one again (most recently, IMHO, with Burials ~5 years ago). 

 

Re: BA, give their 3rd album a chance. The first one from 11 years ago (Cexcells) feels like they were trying too hard to be edgy, but Material is just really solid electronica. Davey also channels his inner diva and seems to revel in sounding like Cher now, which I'm okay with.

I’d say Chvrches third album, Love is Dead, is their best album. Not that I didn’t love their previous ones but their latest has so many good songs (many of which have already been singles) that it just is brilliant from start to finish.

I don’t mind the songs with Martin singing but they pale in comparison to everything else that they do feel out of place. That said he does sing very infrequently overall and the least on Love is Dead. The songs he does a duet on actually work well. It’s the ones he sings on his own that aren’t up to par.
