If you already own all the rest (like I do) then it should have been a free patch.

I don't want to buy the game twice.

It was $5 if you own the rest, pretty reasonable for the content additions IMO.

Agreed. It's not like the original wasn't brilliant and awesome in its own right.

So after spending $3.2 million on the lamest ad ever (click that if you dare), Oregon still failed to enroll ONE PERSON through the Obamacare site.

I'll be the first to admit that the healthcare rollout has been nothing short of disastrous. Maybe giving in to Republican requests during the "shutdown" to delay it for a year wouldn't have been such a bad idea. Despite being for the idea of healthcare availability to more people myself, this botched rollout does give a pretty solid illustration as to why lots of people would prefer things like this remain in the realm of private business as much as possible. Government cannot run things as efficiently or effectively as private industry can most of the time. That said, the current health care system is broken and nobody was doing anything about it; in cases like that the government is almost always going to get involved, for good or for ill.

Seph when you get out into the real world and realize you have to work for things, they aren't just handed to you on the backs of others, and they SHOULDN'T be, maybe you'll gain some wisdom as to how the world actually is.

Wow, that wasn't condescending at all.

Ahh, so this is where you guys have been hiding. Jeez, this is STILL going on? Well at least it's off the popular threads list.

So is this the thread where if you dare deviate from the binary thinking that fits neatly into (pick one) LIBERAL/CONSERVATIVE you get labeled as a (pick the other one) CONSERVATIVE/LIBERAL?

A spade is a spade Prez, if you could honestly tell me with a straight face, given Beamer's history that he's not a liberal since he pretty much is the walking DNC playbook 100% of the time then well that's your problem.

I wouldn't know, since 1) I don't really talk with Beamer any more, 2) I don't care about labels but rather the gist of someone's argument and 3) I don't have a copy of the DNC playbook.

Either you can refute his points or you can't. To me labeling someone else as something you consider an object of derision may be convenient but it looks diversionary, almost like you are ducking the issue.

Yeah, a solid 7 out of 10 is nothing to sneeze at. It feels more believable than if everyone gave 9 out of 10 and 10/10's like they were candy on Halloween.

I never tried Rocksmith, but I've been wanting to learn guitar for a while now. Haven't gotten around to buying one though. Guess that would be a first step if I want to pick this up. I watched some Youtube vids about it, and it seems like a great teaching tool. I have no idea what a good starter guitar would be, so that's gonna take some research.

If you are looking for a good simple guitar for not too much cash Squire Stratocasters are a good place to start.

Guitar Center's Squire Strat Listing

They are generally considered budget or beginner guitars but I've been playing for 26 years and I still use one because it feels and sounds great.

Don't forget you also need the 'Real tone cable' with is about $25 USD if you don't have it yet.
I got the 2011 Rocksmith version with cable on sale for $40.. that was the cheapest I found. I'll get this, but wait for a sale..

-Silvanus

Already have it. Frankly I was amazed that it actually worked at all, and I was truly stunned at the great tones I was getting with it using my different axes (Les Paul, MiM Strat, Jackson Dinky, and Schecter Blackjack).

The first was a great teaching tool that was lacking in a few key areas. If the sequel fixes those I guess it's worth the 70 bucks.

Fellow guitar player here, does it really improve chops? I play in two bands, and as a result have gotten lazy with regards to practicing at home. Will this help at all?? Does it feature crazy solos? Ive been looking for something like this for a long time but Im kind of sceptical....

My experience is only with the first. In my opinion the genius of this game is that it makes you want to practice, makes you play actual songs quickly, and yes, you get better while playing. The song selection was pretty hit and miss in the first, but if you have varied tastes (Rolling Stones to Lamb of God) it isn't much of a roadblock since it's pretty easy to score high enough on the shitty songs to advance. The solos are tunable so if you can't do the ridiculously insane arpeggios and triplets like Synister Gates in "Afterlife", you don't have to. If you wish, however, you can practice the solo until you have it down note for note.

It's as if Roberts somehow tapped into my childhood wetdream and is making a game out of it. I've always operated under the "If it sounds too good to be true then it probably is" principle, so I remain skeptical. But I might have his children if this turns out as awesome as it sounds!

I never messed with Rockband but what I'm getting from you guys is that this is standard practice. It still just seems crappy to me, but I'll just buy the game on a sale and then pay the 10 bucks. Hopefully there will be a GMG coupon for it soon.

I don't mind the $60 price too much (though it is a bit high) but what bothers me is that they have the nerve to charge owners of the original 10 bucks to import the old songs. That's kind of shitty.

Instead of trying to provoke a ban, why not just stop coming here if you don't want to be here anymore? It seems to me you would have had to have been a gaming fan at one point since you signed up here; why not stay and talk about gaming and save the politics for the political forums (of which there are many)?

Food-motivated and food aggressive dogs are extremely easy to medicate - just wrap the pill in anything from cheese to a ball of soft cat food. The non-food driven dogs are the tough ones. You basically have two options 1) grind it and sprinkle the powder over their dinner (not really viable when there is more than one dog in the house or the pen) and eventually they will ingest it or 2) Get the dog still, grasp the dog's jaws and force it in from the side of the mouth pushing it as far down the throat as it will go. Do it fast and do it right the first time so it's not overly traumatic for the dog.

We have to do that sometimes with the extremely shy/timid animals or ones that are too sick to have an appetite.

As TB said permission for monetization wasn't expressly given in writing but it was strongly implied. Even so they did the right thing here; it's going to help them in the long run, especially if they ever manage to get a solid game out the door.

Hopefully TB had the infringement strike by Youtube rescinded as it clearly was unwarranted. Maybe this will help fix the broken system over there.
