    Brill, thanks for the response. I'd give you a +1 but I'm out for today! I'll definitely give that a go when I get chance.

    What did you use to damp it? I've tried the penny mod for my single defective cymbal (which every single pro kit seems to include) and it didn't work for me. I have a second pedal and unfortunately it doesn't introduce hi hat lifts properly for pro drums. You can only use it for lifts during fills or in free play mode. Renders it a bit pointless really. Shame as that could've been a brilliant extra for pro drums.

    I'm sure they're universal - I've used my modded 360 pedal on a PS3 kit before. Didn't want to break someone else's pedal with my heavy bass drum foot!
  4. I probably take music a little too seriously but I can't even find the words for how much I hate the Black Eyed Fucking Peas. Utter shit.
  5. Sounds amazing. This is definitely the sort of thing that Codemasters need to spend LOADS OF TIME putting in for next year
  6. There are many similarities between the two tracks and I wonder if they did get into hot water over it. I was gutted when Forza 2 came out and there were less tracks than the first game. Rio, Blue Mountain, Alpine Ring, Tokyo and the full New York circuit were all great tracks and I hope they make it back in for Forza 4.
  7. It is Bathurst and it is amazing.
  8. I like variety; more of both please.
  9. Jesus, I hated Use of Weapons. Thought he'd properly disappeared up his own arse with that one. I love all the other Culture novels I've read though; Consider Phlebas, Look to Windward and Matter. I've got Surface Detail at home but haven't been able to start it yet...
  10. I agree he certainly isn't the second coming, but I still think he's a very good racing driver who has just had a fairly typical tough first season. I'm not sure your point about Trulli being in the same car and getting pole stands up, as Barichello was in the same car and his performance was fairly standard for the Williams. Hulkenberg obviously had a good feeling in the car that day and was just able to carry more speed around the track than anyone else, it was a very good effort.
  11. Maldonado is a very good driver who has financial backing. Win/win surely? What does this mean? He was in at most the 5th best car, so this seems about as good as could be expected to me.
  12. Completely agree with this. If you only ever watch F1 then I can sort of see how you might not think he's a top level good driver. However, he has performed well in series such as F3, A1 GP and GP2 over the last few years. F1 is a massive step up and some drivers take to it better than others. I think Hulkenberg has done pretty well compared to his vastly more experienced team mate this year and I hope he can stay in F1 next season.

    Cheers mate, that's brilliant! I'm definitely getting that later. I'm surprised that 'The One I Love' isn't in there though!

    Had no idea this was available! Are there any other R.E.M. songs up?

    Did you read the reply I gave to your original post on this? You're not going to just be able to pick this up playing the game (or it would be very hard to). It's all muscle memory and your hand just needs to know where the strings are. Sitting down with the guitar while you're doing something else (like watching telly) and picking the strings will get you used to the picking the right one without having to look. It will take some time, this isn't something that will come immediately.

    Great tip man, have a plus 1! Gonna grab this when I get home, along with the trials dlc.

    Had pro drum kit for over a week now and other than one dodgy cymbal I'm loving it. I've been in touch with Madcatz over my cymbal issue (either doesn't register hits or seems to register twice) and they actually sent me instructions (obviously copied off a forum) of how to do the penny mod! I must admit to being slightly surprised by this. It took them a few days to copy and paste that and send it to me as well
  18. I'd never heard of this game until seeing this thread today, does seem to have been an extremely low key release. However, now I have seen it I'm very interested. Not sure if I can justify another game before Christmas though, might have to wait until the new year unfortunately.
  19. Interesting, it doesn't surprise me that no data was available for the bottom 3 teams. I'd imagine that wouldn't be pretty, especially for Hormone Replacement Therapy.
  20. Touch of a rapist I think the thread has convinced me to re-buy this, especially as I can now buy it for less than the credit I got for trading it.
  21. I see your point with Oblivion and Fallout3, but New Vegas was developed by another team who didn't write the engine. I think these kind of issues are bound to come up under those circumstances. These games are so huge with so many ways in which each player progress quests, how can you play test every possible scenario? I just don't think it's possible.

    Just hold it between your thumb and 1st finger (not too tight) and keep your other fingers relaxed and out straightish. You hand shouldn't be in a fist shape. Try practising alternate picking (up and down) while just sitting in front of the tv and just move up and down the strings. Muscle memory is very important in guitar playing so if you start off like this it will make it easier when playing the game.
  23. Bugger, I thought that might open up later, saving it for dlc??
