howd you like the new muse album? i enjoyed it
I really liked it, probably their best work since Black Holes and Revelations. Not a big fan of Something Human and Get Up And Fight is just awful but everything else is really good. In particular, Algorithm, Blockades and The Void. I'm going to see them in Manchester in June which should be pretty great.
seeing them in February for their world tour. wasnt a fan of dig down but everything else was good.i even got their super deluxe album
Bit jealous that you get february lad

I'm actually partial to Dig Down at times  it's not their best song but it sort of feels like a superior version of Madness to me. The super deluxe alt edition tracks are really nice too though. I find it hard to choose between Algorithm on the album or the orchestral version and the acoustic Something Human is a much better listen than the album version.
Lol im skipping a day of classes just for the concert.
Nice. Have you seen the think they're doing for this tour? They're doing something they called the "fifteen minutes of metal medley" where they play pretty much the main chunks of all their heaviest songs. Last week, they did it for the first time and played Stockholm Syndrome, The Handler, Reapers, Assassin, Dead Star, the Micro Cuts outro segment and New Born all one after another. It looks fucking great.

as long as it's not forced in any way or even really encouraged I don't think it's the worst because... well I don't have to do it. At least it's not the mandatory torture mission in GTAV which is just awful.

Gaming / Re: What are some must-play games of absolute high quality?
« on: November 21, 2018, 08:01:15 AM »

I, an independent video consumer, would consider a small little-known indie title by the name of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim for the role. Why not buy a copy and try it out?

wtf did 343 do to MCC now. Social you just pick the games and gametypes you want now. Also you get banned for 10 minutes when you quit one game,  yeah thanks 343 for punishing people when they  don't want to play against a team of sweatys.

Halo 3 also has big team heavies now
It solves the cross game playlist issue. I think it's great as you can just directly search the games you want rather than risk getting Halo CE CTF with no time limit on Gephyrophobia.

There was an air pollution warning in the air the day after bonfire night in my town because of the smoke from all the fireworks being let off. Shit looked like bladerunner on the night beforehand though, everything was covered in a thin layer of mist. It was like hong kong all over again.

Not gonna bother quoting every post but I'll just say thanks for all the recommendations. I'm gonna work through the stuff recommended in this thread over the next few days/ weeks and I'll try post updates of stuff I liked/ disliked if people care for that sort of thing?

Throw some wheezer and Jimmy eat world in there, some rage against the machine, a little q and not u, get some ambulance LTD for some softer shit.
I will add these to the list too, thanks.
literally NIN

there's a song trent did with both dave grohl and josh homme, if you weren't aware

YouTube

with teeth might be the first place you look, based on what you like, not sure if his older stuff would actually appeal to you (even if it's strongly preferred by most fans, including myself)
Oh sweet thanks. I've been planning on looking at the other stuff Homme has been in like Kyuss and Desert Sessions (and I forgot to put Them Crooked Vultures in OP) so this is definitely something to look at. This seems really interesting, thanks.

I've been listening to my playlist a lot recently while doing uni work, and I've been looking to expand it with some more stuff than the ~300 songs I've got right now. I can link the playlist if anyone particularly wants to see it but the general gist of it is going on bands I like and just clicking "add album" on all their stuff.

Anyway, I figured people here might know some good recommendations.

stuff i like - i added a note for what stuff I have all albums down in case there's something by an artist I've missed
Muse (all albums + most B sides)
Queens of the Stone Age (all albums)
Royal Blood (both albums)
Foo Fighters (most albums)
Kasabian
Kaiser Chiefs
Pendulum
The Prodigy
Nirvana

I've also got the big songs from AC/DC, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin and Deep Purple but I'm still working my way through all their catalogue.

So yeah, some recommendations would be great, especially stuff more similar to Muse/ QoTSA/ Royal Blood/ Foo Fighters as that's the stuff that makes up a bulk of my playlist and what I've been listening to a lot lately.

Foo Fighters' self-titled is nice, I was surprised when I heard that it's all Dave Grohl on that album too.

The Flood / Re: How do so many people get down with Kendrick Lamar?
« on: October 30, 2018, 06:36:54 AM »
honestly I can't think of many songs I listen to where it's about connecting with the artist on an emotional level or what have you. A lot of the time, the songs I like like My God is The Sun or Knights of Cydonia are more about the instruments and how they play off each other (especially good basslines) but I can pretty much shrug off any lyrical content as it's rarely what I focus on.

While that's all my experience with rock bands like Muse and Queens of the Stone Age and Foo Fighters, I'd imagine that people who listen to rap also get something similar out of "the sound" of the music, if that makes sense.

How does repaying your loans work in the US? Over here you only a pay a little bit each year if you earn more than about £22k and if you haven't done it in 30 years it gets wiped and you don't need to worry about it.

I feel kind of lucky in a sense that for the field I'm in, employeers couldn't care less about the degree and care more about my work and portfolio. People always say how you shouldn't go to uni for games stuff but I feel like it's been incredibly worth it for me as there's no way I'd have ever been able to use Zbrush, Substance or Maya for doing work without it.

Does it work on a three monitor setup?
Is it actively animated?

That sounds super cool.

For my PC I use this neat little program called DesktopEarth. You can set a view of Earth and mess with the angle and stuff then have a more or less realtime updated view of Earth, which is pretty neat if you watch evening sweep over your country.

It works on my dual monitor, I have one view as the Earth and one as the moon but ypu can have two views of Earth.

Also you can set it up to update at intervals you want. I have it every five minutes update but you can set it up to update every second.

are they ever going to make the update not the size of the whole game?
For the new update they had to rework a lot of core game functions so having to reinstall it from scratch is fairly reasonable this time around, especially as they brought in the optional installs for different games feature so you only have to install campaign and mp components you want.

But yeah, I really hope they don't pull a Halo 5 with this shit.
