  1. [size=1][color=darkblue]If you are starting to learn on a 6 String acoustic, you should first start to learn chords. This is when you hold down certai nstrings and strum for most of the time. Then, after a year, when you have a real feel for the instrument, move onto the Electric Guitar. Not bass, and electric guitar. You can buy replica Stratocasters (style of guitar) for about $150. I started on Electric, and now, about a year on, I'm getting pretty good, I have lessons, but they aren't completely necassary to be a great guitarist. Bass Guitars have 4 pretty thick strings. They give the 'boom boom' sound in a song, and it's more about being the rhythm, then being over the top on the song. In my opinion, bass is easier, as the tunes are repetitive and generally simple to start with. However, it takes a lot of getting used to as the strings are heavy, and you need to use your fingers, which can be painful to start with. Feel free to add me on AIM (Modern Toilet) or MSN (smashed_ice@hotmail.com) and ask more questions. I gotta run now to get to my lesson, lol, how coincidental. I'll check the thread to help you out more if you need it and can't add me or anything --Bing[/color][/size]
  2. [size=1][color=darkblue]I love System of a Down. I mainly like them because Weh forces me too ^_^. Nah, seriously now, I've heard all three of their albums, and many unreleased tracks, live songs and other stuff, like interviews. I think they're all talented, and they must be, becuase no one else does anything like them. Even imagination is a talent, and the way they think up their lyrics and music is definatley a talent. I am also impressed by something I saw on [crap]Kazaa[/crap]. I'm not sure what song it was, but it was a live video, and Daren's guitar broke at the beggining of the song. Instead of stopping, they carried on, and improvised, and the fans loved it even more than they usually would. They are talented, entertaining AND capable of overcoming 'Live Show' problems. Just a leaving note to the person who seems to be the most dedicated fan on the planet. Shibatku, how many System albums do you, and how much other merchandise do you have? --Bing[/color][/size]

    [size=1][color=darkblue] Well, as I never owned a Dreamcast, I can't really compare JSRF to JGR. However, I am a dedicated XBox gamer, and I know the difference between a good game, and a...not so good one. I got JSRF when I first bought my XBox, as in the UK, you get it free with the console, along with Sega GT 2002. It's a good deal, as these are both good games. I don't know if I would have bought it, but I probably would have, because it's one of the originals on the 'Box, and a must-have in my opinion. There is also no other game like it (except for, obviously, JGR) I like the game because the graphics are superb, it's very colourful, the controls are fairly easy to use, and the aspect of the game is fun. However it does have some bad points. As Semjaza mentioned before, there is a lack of a challenge, no time limit, only one task at a time etc. This doesn't bother me much, but it does make the game a lot less challenging. The soundtrack is a bit poor, even though it is catchy. A custom soundtrack option would have made the game a lot more enjoyable. It is also very repetitive, and you can get easily fed up with the same style challenges. Other than those bad points, I love the game. It's stylish, fairly easy, and suitable for almost everyone, so if you don't have it, look in bargain bins, as you can usually pick it up for around $20 dollars, and I think it may be 'X Box Classic' now too. --Bing[/color][/size]

  5. [size=1][color=darkblue]Erm, I only stay in the credits if I've fallen asleep, or if I recognise and actor/actress and remember their names, because that really bugs me. However, quite a few idiots find it fascinating to wave there hands in the way of the projecter... 'Woah, look my hands on the screen' *dies of over-excitement* ...Anyway... In the first post in this thread, I picked out this... [quote]watching the credits to listen to the crappy songs that they put on (mainly the P.O.D one and the Linkin park one). [/quote] Can I ask what P.O.D song ,and what Linkin Park song is at the end of Matrix Reloaded? When watching the first two films on DVD, I have to watch the credits, because both films have Rage Against Against the Machine songs as soon as they start rolling. The Matrix has 'Wake Up', and Reloaded had 'Calm Like A Bomb'. I was quite dissapointed at the fact there was no Rage song for the end of Revolutions! To finish off my post, I wil lhold my hand in the air, and tell rttocs77 that I'm a firm believer in credits at the start, not the end. --Bing [/color][/size]
  6. [size=1][color=darkblue] Took the words right out of my mouth Semjaza. I used to be a big fan of Limp Bizkit, and occasionally, I listen to them. The first album, Three Dollar Bill Y'All is definatley the best album, in my opinion. Since then, it's like Fred Durst has slowly turned into a rapper with a higher pitched voice than before. I can't say I don't like their new song though, 'Behind Blue Eyes'. Even though it's a cover, it's done pretty well, and doesn't ruin the old song. The one main problem I have with Limp Bizkit, is that, like many other groups in the genre, only one member is known, Fred Durst. Perhaps that's why some people in this thread think Fred is 'Limp Bizkit'.Now, I have no information to prove that what I'm about to say is right or wrong, it's just a conclusion I've come to. feel Fred Durst [b]wants[/b] it that way. That's why Wes left after all, because he couldn't put up with it. Does any one agree with that? Look forward to reading responses. --Bing[/color][/size]

    [size=1][color=darkblue]The game seem alright, but I think because of it's unoriginality, it may not do well. Comedy wrestling games have been done, and I think there are better ones than this. Also, the show is basically dead now. If this game had been released during the shows period of good popularity, maybe we'd have a different story. I still might rent it, or play it if I get the chance, I won't go out of my way just to get a taste. --Bing[/color][/size]

    [size=1][color=darkblue]I've heard good things about this game too. Apparently, it's more like Splinter Cell than the original Rainbow 6 games, is that true? Can you play it without an X Box Live headset? I don't have Live, I may get it, but I have a very crap broadband supplier, so I don't think I can get it just yet. I have alot of question to ask about this game. Is it First Person, or Third Person? Well, I'll ask more question when you reply. --Bing[/color][/size]

    [SIZE=1][COLOR=darkblue]Hello People. This is my latest banner, featuring my name and a True Crimes picture. Please tell me what you think, and maybe suggest some new techniques for my designing! Thanks in advance. --Bing[/COLOR][/SIZE]
  10. [size=1][color=darkblue]Zidargh has just mention the one reason England will win. We have Jonny Wilkinson. There is no player like him in the tournament, and he's our key player in the game against the Wallabies. Our defence is strong, which will cause problems, and although close, I think England can do it. They have my support at least. Come On England![/color][/size]

    [size=1][color=darkblue]Well, at the early hours of this morning I finished Enter The Matrix. The end was some what [spoiler]crap[/spoiler], and it leaves you thinking 'What?', 'Is that it?'. The plot doesn't really conclude as well as in the films, and it kinda feels like it's just a worthless demo for The Matrix Reloaded. However, it's a great game, worth a go![/color][/size]
  12. [size=1][color=darkblue]What are you on? True Crimes is coming out on the X Box, all the magazines are reviewing it, and if it wasn't, why would we bring it up in the Microsoft forum? Anyway, it looks great, but after watching a few movies it looks like it could be a bit like the PS2's 'The Getaway', which I didn't rate at all.[/color][/size]

    [size=1][color=darkblue]Good thread Oyeah, this will stop all those lousy 'What game should I get' and 'Is ....... any good?'. Right, games to recommend... 1. MGS : Substance - As long as you don't own SoL for the PS2 this game is a must. I enjoyed it thoroughly. 2. Enter the Matrix - Great game, good graphics, driving/shooting, beating style. IOt's impressive, and I find it great, although at times a little bleh. Games to steer clear from... Erm, I'm unsure with this section. Sega GT 2002, is a bit crappy, but hey, you get it free, so what's the big deal. I'll edit, or post any more games I suggest to buy or shoot.[/color][/size]

    [size=1][color=darkblue]I've heard it was good, but a bit boring after a while, and it's movelty would wear off very quickly. I played it in a games store, and no one would play volleyball with me, so I kinda got pissed off and walked off. I recently got Enter The Matrix. It's an very good game in my opinion, and it's definatley worth a go. The 'Focus' mode is very good, and there is a lot of moves and qite a strong storyline. However, it's not too hard, well, I haven't encountered anything really tricky yet. The driving levels are a bit weak, but hey, it's a break from constant fighteing, level after level, and with Ghost shooting out the window is very fun! Definatley worth a try![/color][/size]

    [size=1][color=darkblue]I agree about the storyline. MGS1 had a very strong storyline, strong enough to support a sequel, or a prequel. However, I feel that MGS2 had a nearly identical storyline to the first. Using the Nikita to take out power supplies etc. It's just too similar. The radar, I was talking about Snake Tales. Is it just me, or is there no radar? With a radar, I'll play it more, but I don't think the first person mode is 'quick' enough to flick in and out of. Over and Out[/color][/size]
