Wake up. Just please wake the fuck up.

Ok, you're gonna have to be more specific than that. I just watched the first one, and I have no fucking idea what you're talking about. How does anything he said there violate the 2nd amendment?

So that there isn't any confusion, you don't need an amp, effects, or tuner to play Rocksmith -- these are are built in. You can even free play within Rocksmith, selecting from among the variety of available amp and effect models to shape your sound. But yeah, to play outside Rocksmith, you would want an amp and tuner.

Line 6 does make good products for multi-effects and amp modeling. I can also highly recommend the new Fender Mustang line of amps. These days, even low cost amps are pretty good.
Yeah, I saw that I didn't need an amp to play RS, which is why I haven't been in too big a hurry to get one. But I would like to be able to practice and play around outside the game too, so I'll want to grab one pretty soon. I'll take a look at the Mustang and Line 6 amps, thanks!

No, the end of the story is that it IS a tax, as the USSC confirmed. That's how it's implemented, therefore that's what it is.

Self defense is self defense, the Zimmerman case had zero to do with stand your ground, the media circus made it about stand your ground when it had zero to do with the case in reality. That does not excuse Obama's comments on it, or on Martin to try and tug at heart strings or sway people to make him look like a victim. It was an unprecedented thing for a POTUS to do to begin with.
I don't recall saying anything about SYG in my post. Once again, you're not reading the actual post, but just creating a straw man. Martin was a victim of homicide. Whether it was justified or not, we'll never know. Obama has just as much right to speak his mind as any other citizen. That's one of those Amendments you're always talking about, remember? You don't have to agree with him, but aside from calling for re-evaluation of SYG laws (which weren't really a factor here), I don't see anything wrong with his comments.

You said bullshit law, what bullshit law were you talking about then?
I said "bad law", and I was referring to FL's self-defense laws.

There's plenty of Black on White crime every day, why hasn't he weighed in on any of those cases?
Because the perpetrators were arrested and charged, so they didn't become national news that involved a current hot-button issue?

You might want to look into this as well:

POD Studio UX2

Has about any effect you could possibly want (as well as a built in tuner). You can plug some headphones into it and jam. Only thing that is required is a computer to run the interface for effect selection. I have that and the floor pedal version, but the floor pedal is meant for actual gigs, and is a bitch to use.

As for the guitar I use, I think it's an Ibanez JS100 (one of the low end Joe Satriani signature series guitars).

Looks pretty cool. I still need to get a basic amp right now. I'll probably do a little shopping around this weekend for one. Not sure exactly what I should get yet.

My opinion is we have too many people in the US for socialized health care to ever be done in a way that's going to be affordable. Regardless of which party's plan it is. It's just not going to work in the long run doing the actual math.

Is "Obamacare" really socialized health care though? Do people in socialist nations have to pay a premium and a deductible like people do under the ACA? I always thought socialized medicine meant it was paid for completely out of tax revenues.

It is though, it's requiring everyone to pay into a service provided by the government, something that SHOULD not be allowed to happen period.
No, it's really not. It's requiring us to purchase plans from corporations, not from the government.

RollinThundr wrote on Oct 26, 2013, 15:21:
I'm all for regulating the health industry on how much certain procedures cost. What I am not for is redefining parts of the Constitution or outright ignoring parts of the Constitution to reflect mob mentality. It's a dangerous precedent.
We've been through this. It's not unconstitutional. Hell, the Heritage Foundation came up with the individual mandate, not those socialist Dems.

RollinThundr wrote on Oct 26, 2013, 15:21:
The same goes for the first and second amendment, Obama has talked more than once about silencing members of the media that he doesn't agree with, advocating boycotts on members of the media like a Rush, or Fox in general or the Bob Woodward case,just because he doesn't like what they have to say.

RollinThundr wrote on Oct 26, 2013, 15:21:
He's also made reference to executive orders on the 2nd amendment which is not in his power to do. The media is there, and this is ALL media, to challenge politicians in both policies and actions. We don't have that now, instead we have a media that is an extension of their own bias be it left or right.
You obviously have no idea what those proposals were. They weren't going to violate the 2nd amendment in any way, and I say that as someone who is a gun owner and supports gun ownership rights.

RollinThundr wrote on Oct 26, 2013, 15:21:
We're setting a very dangerous precedent, people really need to wake up regardless of party affiliation.
Really the Zimmerman case was a perfect example of this which is why I brought it up. How many times has a president in history ever made a federal case of black on black crime, or black on white crime? When have you ever heard the terminology before the zimmerman case of "White Hispanic?" Never mind the double standard when talking about black conservatives, equating them to race traitors, calling them Uncle Toms or the like.
The Zimmerman case was an example of a bad law and a whole lot of uninformed people spewing a lot of uninformed crap all over the place. The bottom line is that since there were no useful witnesses, we don't know who started the conflict. We do know Zimmerman made some really bad, and downright stupid, decisions, but that doesn't tell us who initiated the fight. Since the law doesn't require him to provide any evidence that lethal force was required or that he was attacked, they had to acquit.

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.

Yeah, they are having problems like everyone else it seems. Definitely a mess of a rollout. But they do seem to be doing fairly well in spite of that. It'll probably be closer to the end of year before they have the problems resolved and people start signing up. After hearing about the issues, most are probably just going to wait until they hear that it's improved.

Seems like RT wants to label anyone who doesn't agree with him as some hippie liberal so that he can dismiss any argument without even considering it. I definitely don't fit the typical liberal mold, and I think that most of us that he's arguing with work in corporate jobs and are in the upper few percent of household incomes in this country. RT pretends there is no center in this country though. You either agree with the TP or you're a liberal. It's a bizarre spectrum he seems to use.

I have plenty of issues with Obama, and I don't think Obamacare is a much of a solution for our problems, but then we weren't going to get much of a solution given how Congress has been. I figure the Republicans had a good 10+ years of control of Congress and the Presidency and they didn't do much of anything (and what they did do, they didn't pay for), so we take what we can get. It's at least an improvement, technical fuckups aside.

I want people to have health care. Our current system is just the most retardedly expensive way to provide health care for people who can't afford it. Maybe Romney is ok with us picking them up in an ambulance and taking them to the emergency room, but it's just so unbelievably fucking stupid! Let them get preventative care and early treatment. Keep them healthy so they can look for work and hold down a job. It's better for everyone.

Thanks for the site suggestions. I'll have to take a look at those. I've found some beginner lesson vids on YT that should help too. I'll probably take the guitar to a local shop to get set up, unless a friend of mine is around to help with that.

So this is the guitar I decided on after several hours of reading and watching Youtube demo vids. Liked the sound, and most people that have one seem to like it s lot. It's not too exprnsive either, which is nice.

A good starter guitar is CHEAP, lol.

a) You don't know what a "good" guitar sounds like, so that doesn't matter
b) You're probably going to bang it up or slack on maintenance or otherwise wear on it faster when you're just starting out
c) You might decide you're just not as into learning as you thought you might have been after trying it a while

And so on. It's best not to spend a whole bunch of money right away, you can always buy something better later when you know what you're doing. I got a Squier Bullet Strat for $130 or so to go along with the original game when I got it almost a year ago, and even that is too expensive for a starter axe by some opinions I've seen. You might prefer a different body shape, though. Just remember to pick up a strap (the ones that come with cheap guitars always suck), a bunch of picks, and maybe a change of strings to go with it.

I kind of have the opposite opinion. Like you, I got a Squire as my first guitar, and it sounded horrible. If it sounds horrible, you think YOU sound horrible, and its a bad feedback loop. A good guitar makes a lot of difference.

As for Rocksmith 2014, I can wait to get this. Does the original Rocksmith PS3 cable work on the PC? I'd imagine it's the same thing.

Thanks for the advice guys. I'm looking into the options still, and doing some reading. I may go hit one of the better stores here in town tomorrow to take a look at what they have. Hopefully I'll get something picked out by this weekend.

Wow, this brings back memories of desperately rereading the bottom of the game boxes to verify that, yes, the computer will not in fact run USNF/Quake/Tomb Raider/TIE Fighter very well.

If I wanted to play this game, history would be repeating itself because I'm 2 GB short of the requirement. XD

Yeah, shit, I'm still only on 4 gigs. Granted I'm in the process of upgrading but I figured next mobo I get I'd be fine with 8 gigs of RAM. So is 6 going to be the new standard? So what will we really need at least? 8? 12?

Damn, if that's the kind of party it's going to be I'm going to stick my dick in the mashed potatoes!

RAM was pretty cheap last time I upgraded my box, so I have 12 in mine. That was from a couple years ago. I tend to multitask a lot, so I use quite a bit of RAM. I could work in a VM, have at least 100 browser tabs open, and can still run a game and just alt-tab out whenever I want. It's pretty nice. Don't really see needing more than that. You could probably get by for quite a while with 8 though.

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.

The only point you've made is ignoring independent research and stuck your fingers in your ears. The liberal media bias is pretty obvious at this point. Anyone with half a brain who isn't a card carrying lib can see it easily, what humored me the most is 37% of democrats actually think the media is conservative biased across the board, if that isn't a fantasy land view, I'm not sure what is. Next you'll be telling me MSNBC is a conservative station.

This is what you lefties do when you can't disprove a talking point from the other side. Throw shit against the wall and hope something sticks.

You've already escaped reality, If George Bush were president right now having not worked hard enough with Congress, to get a budget passed for nearly his entire allowed two terms of presidency, The Rachel Maddows and Chris Matthews of the world would be having a fucking field day about it. C'mon let's be honest here.

I mean shit man, the way the guy talks like he's still in campaign mode you'd think he didn't realize he can't be reelected again.

Nice link to a known liberal biased blog btw. thanks for proving my point of the vast amount of liberal slanted media.

When Pew studies say exactly what I just said. http://tinyurl.com/kygl8br

A plurality, 46 percent, thought that most media organizations could best be described as “liberal” while 26 percent said that the media was largely “conservative.” While a majority of Republicans and a plurality of independents view the media as being “liberal,” self-identified Democrats are split down the middle. 36 percent of Democrats describe the media as being “liberal” while 37 percent consider the press “conservative.”

But just ignore Dan Rather on CBS using forged documents on a special about Bush. Or NBC editing the 911 call from Zimmerman. Or Maddow on MSNBC editing the clip of McCain talking to the parents of one of the school shootings. Nope......nothing to see here folks. Move along! No liberal spin here.

Love how you just ignore the countless times people here have offered evidence to prove your claims false, and you just move right on to your next ridiculous rant.

Nothing much to see here. RT is pretty much just like most other TPers, incapable of understanding any argument that doesn't fit on a bumper sticker.

Why not debate and disprove what I posted rather than toss out some ad homs? And you wonder why I kept saying you people don't live in reality and just make it up as you go along.

Because, as soon as I prove something you say to be false, you just change the subject and move on. You've tossed out a bunch of ad homs yourself in this thread, and just did it again right now, so you can shut up about that now too. It's utterly pointless to debate anything with you when you just ignore and move on each time.

Pew research is independent. Posting from a liberally biased blog is not. I even gave you examples of liberal media doctoring news to slant to a certain opinion.

JD has actually debated in this thread. You and folks like beamer rely on adhoms and name calling and generally not much else.

Usually when people have an opinion on a certain topic they cite reasons to back up why they think that way. Which is why I throw out the vast amount of examples I do to back up my opinion.

If you're only retort is you're wrong without giving legitimate reasons why and just calling someone a troll or a moron, that doesn't really win you many points in a discussion.
Everything seems liberally biased when you're on the far right of the scale. There's no other direction to go! I think you've made my point for me here.

When the majority of Americans are getting there news from liberal sources like NBC and CBS how do you think they're going to process things?

You know as well as I do, if a republican president didn't pass a budget for a term and a half we'd never hear the end of it, and the president would be the focal point of the blame.



Obama has been given pass after pass after pass since day 1 and I can't for the life of me figure out why.

The liberal media that books conservatives almost 2 to 1 on its political shows? Whatever you're smoking, can I have a hit? I need some escape from reality.

You've already escaped reality, If George Bush were president right now having not worked hard enough with Congress, to get a budget passed for nearly his entire allowed two terms of presidency, The Rachel Maddows and Chris Matthews of the world would be having a fucking field day about it. C'mon let's be honest here.

I mean shit man, the way the guy talks like he's still in campaign mode you'd think he didn't realize he can't be reelected again.

Nice link to a known liberal biased blog btw. thanks for proving my point of the vast amount of liberal slanted media.

When Pew studies say exactly what I just said. http://tinyurl.com/kygl8br

A plurality, 46 percent, thought that most media organizations could best be described as “liberal” while 26 percent said that the media was largely “conservative.” While a majority of Republicans and a plurality of independents view the media as being “liberal,” self-identified Democrats are split down the middle. 36 percent of Democrats describe the media as being “liberal” while 37 percent consider the press “conservative.”

But just ignore Dan Rather on CBS using forged documents on a special about Bush. Or NBC editing the 911 call from Zimmerman. Or Maddow on MSNBC editing the clip of McCain talking to the parents of one of the school shootings. Nope......nothing to see here folks. Move along! No liberal spin here.

Love how you just ignore the countless times people here have offered evidence to prove your claims false, and you just move right on to your next ridiculous rant.

Nothing much to see here. RT is pretty much just like most other TPers, incapable of understanding any argument that doesn't fit on a bumper sticker.

Kept meaning to go back and play this some more as it was really fun, except for the damn dogs.

I don't generally play multiplayer games, since it's hard to commit to uninterrupted gsming time. Is this any good as a single-player game?

Yeah it's totally the republicans who commit voter fraud and intimidation.

Also of note is the IRS audits against Tea Party groups because they're TP groups. Should I continue? Or are you going to continue to only say the republicans are bad?

Wow, really? That's all you've got? Let's look at these.

Link 1: someone voted for Obama six times. Like I said, there were 24 cases of voter fraud. Obviously she's one of them. 24 out of 197,000,000. Lightening strikes and shark bites.
Link 2: Anecdotal. Where's the follow up? What's the other side of the story, could it have been simple miscommunication?
Link 3: Acorn? Really? Jim O'Keefe get's the Acorn equivalent of a McD's employee to say something strange on camera resulting in the entire defunding of the operation, an operation which worked to improve the lives of the poor. Pure entrapment.
Link 4: Another anecdote, but I agree: if they're intimidating, or electioneering within 100' of the polling place, they should be arrested, per the law.
IRS Scandal: That was bad, and you won't see me defending it. Although the IRS delayed approval for several liberal groups as well as many Tea Party groups, it was mostly Tea Party, and that discrimination never should have happened.

Okay, so you're pulling out isolated incidents carried out by individuals, even in the IRS case. Many of these are investigated, under investigation, and/or prosecuted (Acorn unjustly so, IMO). The worst among them is the IRS scandal.

However, all of these are a drop in the bucket compared to what I'm talking about: A massively funded multipronged nationwide coordinated attack on democracy by the Republicans:
- Attempting to weaken the president by delegitimizing him using a plethora of groups pushing various misinformation and lies (Birthers, etc.).
- Attempting to disenfranchise entire classes of voters, potentially millions of people by limiting early voting and pushing for voter ID laws to attempt to "fix" a problem that doesn't exist.
- Attempting to overturn the constitutional law of the land by shutting down the government instead of using the legislative process.
- Blocking and filibustering democratic legislation and appointees at a rate unprecedented in history

Why do you keep defending the indefensible? Notice how I agree the IRS scandal was wrong. You've done none of that.

At the least we agree on the IRS scandal. And while I really don't buy into the birther garbage, and that's exactly what it is garbage, I find it extremely hard to deny that Obama is trying to fundamentally change the US and and not for the better, the obvious socialist tones he often makes in his speeches quite honestly are frightening to someone who values the Constitution and wishes this country to remain free, and continue to have rights, like the 2nd amendment. His desire to gun grab when you need look no further than his very own home district of Shitcago to see that oppressive gun laws do nothing to reduce crime. Instead they do the opposite, empower criminals because they know they're the ones with the guns.

Can you at least acknowledge the points at hand before you go off on another tangent? What exactly do you believe Obama has done to create this "overgrown executive branch" that wasn't already being done by Bush?

this game is a clusterfuck. but it also feels more like diablo than diablo 3 does, so it's worth trying
Clusterfuck how, exactly? I haven't played in a while, but the beta was shaping up pretty nicely. Really just needed more content, which they seem to have added.

I agree, I've been playing it the past two weeks and its so much different then it was a year ago. As for the money. I see nothing that prevents anyone from playing this game from start to finish without spending one dime.

The only thing I see that may kill this game is that the devs allowed the player to go up to level 99. I'm not sure how much life you can get out of this game after leveling that far without any add-ons coming out. I would have thought the smart move here would be to limit the leveling up to around 70 then bring out add-ons giving players the ability to level up 10 more level per add-on.


You're not going to reach the max level (100) unless you spend months on-end grinding for extremely small amounts of XP. There are diminishing returns at the high end that make maxing out your character very difficult for everyone and only achievable by the most dedicated (and masochistic) of players. This is why just about every build you see online plans out to only level 80-85, because that is what is feasible to attain with what content is currently available. And even that is based upon an end-game, following completion of all story-related content through several difficulty levels, wherein you farm randomly-generated dungeons starting at around 70-75. I hear only a handful of people have reached 100 since the start of open beta, literally only 4 or 5, when they have several million registered accounts.

The replayability from this game comes with trying out the other classes, as well as building out each class in different ways. They're going to keep adding content on a consistent basis (small updates every two weeks with larger expansions every few months), so that should be more than enough to keep any ARPG fan satisfied (all completely FREE, no less). If your sole purpose in playing this game, is to reach the level cap with one character... Good luck, lol.
I never have had much interest in getting anywhere near level cap. I find some new interesting build to play by the time I hit around 60 usually It does get pretty grindy going forward from there, and I don't have the patience for it, and haven't been interested in multiboxing for farming decent gear.

I'm looking forward to the additional content coming up as well. Lots to keep busy with for a while in this game.
