    I know it's possible. See: THUG2, Half-Life for PS2, Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

    It's definitely possible, but my argument is still that the controls were fine. But that's just my opinion. So not much of an argument.

    Make good content and do things differently. Gaming channels are a dime a dozen, you have to stand out. Having catchy titles and eye-catching thumbnails isn't the be all end all, because everybody who has a gaming channel does the exact same thing.

    Quote from _Xiae»

    None. Don't really play games anymore anyway.


    Have never really understood the Steam sales to be honest. Why on earth do you people bother paying money for and collecting games, only to never even download over half of them, let alone play them?


    That's a generalization, I always make sure to buy games that I'm actually excited to play. Sometimes games are wicked cheap, and you just wanna have it in your collection for a later date. So you take advantage of the low price. .

    Hmm. I can't see any logical reason as to why it couldn't be screwed on.


    The height of the pickups on my jazz are too high for the cover, so you'd run into the difficulty of having certain strings ringing out at inappropriate times. Also there was something involving the wires that connected the pickups to the rest of the electronics...

    I'm looking to play single player. (Don't have Internet and I can get the game for four dollars) I was just wondering if there where any scenes of extra strong violence?


    what do you mean dude

    It's a rated M game. It's a military shooter. Yes there is strong violence, even in the single player

    posted a message on Favorite Music Artist?

    currently, it's Paul Simmons!

    I think I got his last name right.

    The guy who plays "late in the evening" or "me and Julio down by the school yard".


    Paul Simon

    Right now I've got three favorite artists.. a holy trinity if you will

    Thee Oh Sees, a group headed by the mighty John Dwyer (the principle songwriter.) He really utilizes the whole "great artists steal" idea. And he utilizes it very tastefully. These guys have so many different sounds and records, I've fallen in love with them a million times over. Just greasy slacker garage rock.

    Lightning Bolt. Drum bass duo. If one band could be defined by the name of their group, it would be Lighting Bolt. They hit you HARD. They are on top of things live. Brian Gibson and Brian Chippendale. Gibson is a lightning fast bass player with amazing riffs and melodic tricks, and Chippendale is an ABSOLUTE animal at drums. He's the least technical player in the world but it's so primal and he's extremely talented. He wears a mask and sings (chants?) during most songs. They're the kind of band to play on the floor with everyone surrounding them, it's crazy energy. One of Bowie's favorite bands actually. I'm actually friends with the drummer! He lives in Providence and just the other week I went to his place for a show (his solo stuff,) he's a super nice guy and a great artist.

    Death Grips. The records they've put out since 2011 have been unbelievably consistent. Super shallow listening. In the sense that.. if you listen to them and dig in for a deeper meaning, you won't find it. Take this music for face value. They have no musical influence, all of the material comes from their hearts (aw.) It's really trendy to not care about anything in music, and a lot of bands like to project that attitude. They usually fail. Death Grips don't fail. They actually don't care about you or anything. And I love it.

    And hey! Coincidentally, all these bands are (kind of) connected! Brian C and John D lived in Providence and grew up on the noise/experiment scene there. I actually asked Brian a couple months ago about John and he said "he texted me today!" And then Zach Hill from DG (the greatest drummer ever.. basically) toured with Lightning Bolt in the early 00s with his band Hella, a math rock band.

    People don't give enough credit to some music scenes these days, a lot of really really fantastic bands are getting overlooked because of the sole fact they came out in the past five years. Ridiculous.

    Quote from Kuro»

    Either or. I just really like the aesthetic of a sunburst Jazz, rosewood neck, pearloid block fret inlays, a red tortoiseshell pickguard and no pickup covers (I imagine they'd just get in the way).

    And of course the italic pre-1975 Jazz Bass logo, you Know, the really big one.

    Haha yeah that used to be my dream bass. Sunburst bodies + red tortoiseshell pickguards are gorgeous. I do also love block inlays. I remember a couple years ago I bought a Squier VM Jazz bass. I still have it and it still plays very well, was like 300 bucks. I bought a pickup cover for the neck pickup because I wanted the "vintage aesthetic" but it wasn't able to be screwed on because it was specifically for Fenders. Shame.

    An OC is a character that you made. That's how simple it is. Really.

    A character that you make? Aren't most characters in original stories going to be.. original.... why is there an abbreviation for it... has story-making been revitalized... oh wait I just googled it... it's fanfic lingo... that would've been useful information ;)
