  1. Rock Band 4

    My daughter is unwell and was kicking off this morning as soon as I stopped holding her and talking to her. We compromised and I sang REM, The Cure and Bon Jovi in a lullaby style using the headset mic.
  2. Rock Band 4

    If you've a decent sized dlc library you can contribute a lot. You get loads of bonus xp for being first, second or third to do a song so my 3 stars on easy vocals have contributed more than I thought they would as no one else has done it.
  3. Giant Bomb Fan Club

    You're not alone. I'm having the same issue with both East and West coast feeds. There are others on the forum. It's not the end of the world as the ads are adjusting on the west coast at least. I'm also using Pocket Casts, but on Android.
  4. Rock Band 4

    Requested to join the crew, suspect I will be out as soon as we hit 11 members as I'm shite but have all the instruments at least.
  5. Giant Bomb Fan Club

    Jason and Dan winding each other up at the start of the emails in this week's Bombcast I assume. It came after the Paper Mario chat.
  6. Giant Bomb Fan Club

    Just went to the store to buy one of these. £60 including shipping! Maybe not.
  7. Marvel's Luke Cage - Netflix Original 30th September

    When did whether or not somone likes something become a spoiler? I just came into the thread to see if the show is worth my time and I've got a minefield of spoiler tags to navigate if I want to know about anything more than some juvenile sideboob talk.
  8. Football Thread 2016/17

    So no one else noticed that Pete Donaldson said "bummed in the gob" on last Thursday's Ramble then? I checked, he's only posted on here 23 times. Coming over here, nicking our 10 year old memes. Pricks. I listen to GFW, Football Ramble and Football Fives. They make for a varied, enjoyable trio. Can't remember who on here recommended the latter but I find it a good show. They answer five questions each week or make fantasy five-a-side teams and argue about who should be included. It's four fairly regular, very passionate football nerds talking football and I often find it a joy.
  9. Games you absolutley suck at

    I always used to think I was pretty good at Rock Band but then they released RB3 with its online scoredboards. I'd finish a song, putting in a Rock God level of performance that leaves me with a head the size of Axl Rose. Cuts back to menu: "Score 12,000 more points to be in the top 90% of the leaderboard."
  10. Performance Enhancing Drugs in Cycling and Other Sports

    The Williams sisters were on the always excellent Transworld Sport when they were kids. Quite a nice feature.
  11. Steam

    Runs beautifully on PC now based on my own experience. I did hear that having 16gb RAM makes a difference to that though.
  12. Concerts - general discussion and experiences

    I saw Thee Oh Sees in Leeds last weekend. I've not had huge exposure to them really as they don't put more recent stuff on Spotify, I just knew they fitted the general 'garage rock' sound that I enjoy in a live band. They were bloody mesmerising. They have two drummers who perform perfectly in time throughout, not a clue how they do it. Their songs are tight as hell and they even got along a great support act in The Blind Shake. I thought I would have travelled the furthest to see them after a couple of hours up the M1 from Leicester. Not even close. I came across people from Newcastle, Edinburgh and even Stockholm who had come for the gig. I've a first kid on the way in a few weeks. After about 15 years of 1 gig a week on average this being my last big show in a very long series was a glorious way to bow out.
  13. Giant Bomb Fan Club

    He's said he will miss the GameSpot team so I can't imagine he is staying in SF. Given the amount of time he has spent going to Ireland and back recently a move to New York would make that a whole lot easier.
  14. Giant Bomb Fan Club

    Danny O'Dwyer is leaving GameSpot. Wonder if he will end up at GBeast.
  15. Nintendo 3DS

    For anyone else in the market for a new 3DS XL they can be had for £155 from Tesco at the moment. Just bought one along with Link Between Worlds and a charger from Amazon. £170 for that lot feels pretty reasonable.
