  1. How have he and Agger basically swapped places in terms of status? I thought Agger was generally regarded as one of the best CBs in the league, not to mention a good passer.

    Injuries and rotation mean our defences is always jumbled up. Players often then have to earn their places back. Agger has been away from the action for a while whereas Skrtel has been uninjured and other players slotting in around him have been changing.

    We just turned down Napoli's request to loan him and I suspect he will be back in the squad full time sooner rather than later.

  2. It's been mad with the amount of teams in contention for anything and everything. We were close to being left behind but now we've got ourselves a run of nice fixtures to sort that out.

    Still reliant on a lot of teams dropping points like flies though. Consistency is what you need but you are having to sit and wait to see what happens.

  3. Only the scores by Yoko Kanno have been published. There isn't enough interest otherwise.

    After doing some research I believe this is less to do with interest only being in Yoko Kanno's works and more the general publishing around anime music. For the most part full band scores tend to be for general compilations with fairly few exceptions (which tend to be theme song collections), with most anime music scores dealing with piano which makes sense for various reasons, but also the same amount of it not making sense (time and effort in arranging it). The compilations that do exist are more or less identical, almost every book has the same 30-50% of it's contents consisting of the same songs.

    Piano arrangements are more varied and can exist for seemingly minor shows, something that also happens with commercial music score printing in Japan - a comparatively minor artist can easily get piano arrangements but not a straight replication of the actual material.

    As far as the original Macross goes, Ai wo omoimasen ka is frequently found in compilations, but isn't close to the most suitable choice to arrange in a band score (the other songs are much more band orientated). I can only put it down to a combination of the age of the material and the lack of commercial music on the soundtrack.

    I can understand that this stuff typically has a low level of interest anyway (newer stuff is easier to market), but sometimes the stuff missing seems a lot more marketable than the stuff that is actually printed.

    Although thanks to this I've discovered a proper band score exists for Lupin, and not just the first Jazz album, the trouble is finding a copy for sale. Never mind, it's a tribute album score ;)

  4. Couple of questions.

    Does background downloading of PS+ games stop if you do anything including playing single player games and watching a DVD ?

    Does the PS3 reboot between everything I.e. my TV displays the image resolution every time I start a game or between any kind of transition, maybe not everything but it's disconcerting seeing it happen so often.

    If I download Uncharted 3 from PS+ can I delete the 10gb 3D movies part without it affecting my ability to play the game ?

    1) It will carry on doing it for single player games. For dvd I'm not too sure and never worked out if it did or not.

    2) As Napolean and Moz have said. Most ps3 games are 720p, so you'll see it doing that quite often if you have the console set to 1080p.

    3)You need at least one of the movie packs, you can delete the 3d movies only if you have downloaded the 2d movies. You also need the multiplayer portion as you load the game from the MP menu (which is bonkers, but there you go). It's not the most sensibly packaged game it must be said.

  5. TuneCore explains music-based YouTube claims

    Following music-related copyright claims on Terry Cavanagh's trailer for his own game, VVVVVV, as well as composer Magnus Pålsson's discovery that he was getting copyright claims on his own music, music distributor TuneCore has released an explanation for its role in the situation.

    Both Cavanagh and Pålsson stated that the claims were made by YouTube music network INDMUSIC, which Tune Core has partnered with to license music involved in its publishing deals. TuneCore's post explains that when artists sign a publishing deal with TuneCore, they are granted "the right to collect the royalties [their] compositions earn when they're downloaded, streamed, and used around the world." This includes usage on services like Spotify and YouTube.

    The same post offers a step-by-step walkthrough for artists that wish to have their channel whitelisted so that it's not monetized by TuneCore and INDMUSIC. However, TuneCore notes that even if artists whitelist their personal accounts, "TuneCore and INDMUSIC will still monetize other people's videos on YouTube that use your music, and you'll collect that money.

    Unfortunately, it sounds like Pålsson's desire to allow Let's Plays and reviewers to use his music without collecting revenue isn't compatible with TuneCore's publishing deal, even if he whitelists his own channel.

  6. Well it just turned out that Nintendo made some decent games for 3DS and then got some decent third party exclusives (or rather, Monster hunter). It was pretty bleak for the first year. The system always gets a huge boost when specific games come out (like NSMB2, MH4 and Pokemon), something that isn't happening with Wii U in the long term yet.

    They can still turn the Wii U around, but it would take a herculean effort now they have two newer machines to compete against.

  7. Unless a Nintendo game bombs like Other M they don't get traded in as much and the sale price remains high.

    Despite suggestions to the contrary, Nintendo published games can and do get discounted, regardless of sales performance. The key is that these are usually titles developed outside of Nintendo, where Ninty are only acting as publisher. While the likes of core Mario or Zelda games might not get discounted much, if at all before their budget releases (which take years), anything outside of those core internally developed games is fair game for discounts.

    So while Nintendo don't reduce the prices of their games like pretty much everyone else, they certainly can and do when the mood suits them.

    As for them being traded in or not, I think it's a never-ending circle there. Game etc charge a premium for used Nintendo published games, because of the amount of time the new copies stay at their original price. The number of copies won't really affect their pricing because they know the new copies won't yoyo in price every month.

  8. Nobody has mentioned Doki Doki Universe yet?

    Picked it up on vita and ps4 and the cross play works brilliantly. It auto saves your save to the cloud on both systems and loads the latest version.

    It's a really nice sweet game. Kind of Toe Jam and Earl meets Scriblenauts.

    Fact time (because I didn't know this myself until a few days ago): DDU was made by Greg Johnson, who was one of the creators of TJ+E and still owns the IP.

  9. I will pay £5 if someone can fine me a midi, tab or sheet music of "Runner" from the original Macross. I can find every other song from the original apart from the bloody end theme!

    While official sheet music is easy to come across for Macross 7 and Frontier, for some reason it doesn't exist for the original. :hmm:

  10. And that little shit made the fucking most of it.

    You won't mind us kicking you in the stomach/chest with studded boots on then?

    You could argue it was harsh, you could also argue that it's dangerous, intentional or not. It's one of those that people probably aren't going to agree on.
