I can go on Reddit, various porn sites, all social networks, 4chan wasn't blocked for quite some time, but I can't go on Newgrounds. Well, I can't watch videos, play games, or post. I can view the forums though. So yep. Also my school says Newgrounds is a porn site. ALSO, I'll get JSR on Vita.

I ordered the Pro Drums kit for RB3 last week and it arrived today. I'm finding it fairly tricky to get used to, but it's really fun to play. Got 15g for doing the beginner lessons too.

Was it the official Mad Catz kit? If so have a fun month of having working cymbals.

The only think I found particularly difficult about going from Drums to Pro Drums was the fact that I occasionally missed the blue cymbal because it was higher up so I had to adjust to that, and also sometimes it got confusing going from cymbals to toms and back again in quick succession, though I picked it up easily enough.

It makes the drums so much more fun I think, sucks that the only Pro Kits worth getting are pretty expenisve.

I'm struggling to find an ION Kit with 3 cymbals, anybody know where I can get one for the UK?

Basically my experience with Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning.

Why do you people put so many hours into games you don't like. Why don't you just try a different game? Your ways displease me.

I got Catherine from Lovefilm and it's really quite enjoyable. I thought maybe the gameplay would change, but it hasn't, originally I thought it would get pretty stale pretty quick, but it's still really fun and challenging, and it's nice to see a game try something new, it's really really refreshing. I think it was on low priority too, because it had my interest, but I didn't feel like playing it for a long time. But I'm actually really glad I sent it. I'm a little annoyed at how I can send flirty texts to Catherine, and I can be a complete dick to Katherine (lets face it, Catherine < Katherine) yet the protagonist still acts like a whiny bitch. He's so distant from Katherine, I don't understand why he's sticking with her. Another minor annoyance, is how he feels he has to be committed to Katherine because she is SPOILER WARNING pregnant. If I was considering breaking up with someone pregnancy would not hold me back, let alone consider marriage like the protagonist is doing. SPOILER END

I just wish Lovefilm would send me Sleeping Dogs already.

Yeah it is sadly, but I have a 2 year warranty on the entire kit so I can get anything replaced at any time.

That's what exactly I'm having trouble with, but practice makes perfect. All of my current scores are laughably bad D:

I haven't searched myself, but do Rock Band Parts ship over here? I imagine that would be your best bet.

I have RB2 but I've purchased it twice, the first time I ended up selling it out of boredom and need for cash and the second time I got it, it was scratched up and didn't work for certain songs, plus the import code was used.

Also, I wanna play someone on drums. I have no idea how good I am in relation to other people on this.

The exports are the cheapest ways of getting songs. The RB1 songs area little messed up though, it's incredibly easy to get gold stars on all of them, even with missing a hell of a lot of notes.

It's annoying you can't do the same instruments playing together, like on Guitar Hero. I'd like to be able to battle someone on Drums.

Oh God I just checked RBP, I want this so badly. Sucks it'll got back up to $1,000+ soon though. I bet the shipping would be horrific as well.

I wonder if I can find a UK seller.

Dear Christ WHY. You might as well buy an actual Drum Kit for that kind of money. You guys are just being silly.

I'd have a real drum kit by now if I was in a position to own one that I could play.
I have the perfect, and I mean perfect space for one in my garage, but apparently my career as a professional drummer isn't as important as my brother and step-dad lifting weights and shit like that.

I'm planning on getting an Alesis DM10 that can go in my room though, I'd rather get a real kit but unfortunately the circumstances are not permitting me to have one. So I'll settle with electric.

Anyway gamerscore related I'll probably play Xbox all day tomorrow and start on RAGE, not sure what to expect but I've heard mixed opinions. Apparently there isn't much mission variety, I guess I'll find out. I only play games for the G anyway.

Why do you people put so many hours into games you don't like. Why don't you just try a different game? Your ways displease me.

Because I wanted to 100% it. I tend to lose interest in games that pit me against massive online communities as far as those last few achievements go in any given game, but the ones I can essentially get offline are the ones I tend to go for longer. Like, I probably wont ever 100% a COD game simply because you have to do ridiculous shit over live in ranked matches, as opposed to games like Borderlands or KoA:R where you just keep going until it's done. Basically, I dont want to have to be better than a bunch of people just for an achievement. It loses its fun a lot quicker that way, to me.

I'm pretty sure you mean Battlefield because CoD never has achievements in its multiplayer system. Sometimes it will have them in its other modes like Spec Ops and Zombie mode but never ever in it's online ranked multiplayer. That's one of the clever things about call of duty, it understands the achievement demographic and leaves the achievements all available on single player and fairly easy to get. They're also challenging enough to feel satisfying when you do get them.

I have to agree. It was always a relief to find that there were no stupid ranked online achievements when a new CoD game came out, they did a great job in that respect. And the achievements they did have, like you said, were just the right sort of challenge to be good for those games.

So do you have to use a controller? Or can you use the instruments if you want to? I'm still a little confused by what the game is. Guess I need to watch some Gameplay.

Well then you should get it!

Hearthfire came with 5 achievements for 10G each which was a bit of a surprise. Didn't really expect to get any, so it's alright. Got 10G from that and 20G from Dawnguard.

Oh and I finished Future Soldier too, got about 150G more. I'm only on 380G though so I'm going to keep going at it on muliplayer and stuff before sending it back. Should be at college long tomorrow so I'll either get started on RAGE or play some more Skyrim.

Mark of the Ninja just came out. I heard it was supposed to be 800 points, but it's 1200. Thought for a second that RB Blitz might be a better choice, but I don't have enough RB songs for that to be fun.

Lovefilm has sent me Mass Effect 3 (the third low priority title in a row, get your fucking shit together Lovefilm). I don't actually mind that much, but I haven't completed ME2 so that's a tad annoying. It's nice, knowing I've taken a single Shepard through all the ME games, makes me feel like a dedicated fan.

I'm installing Windows 7 on a machine with 512MB of RAM and a 1.6Ghz processor, wish me luck!

+50G from Dawnguard and Hearthfire. Still yet to come across a Legendary Dragon but I'll just keep playing, I'm level 75 so it should be long. Finished all the Vampire Perks, though I'm sure I've massacred half the population of Skyrim. Going to get a cure for Vampirism and see if I can become a Werewolf again to get the achievement for that.

Think I'm going to need to use another save to adopt a child, because I killed my wife and don't appear to be able to get a new one.

Also building 3 houses might take a while.

Soul Tear - 20G
Vampire Mastered - 20G
Architect - 10G

Oh and I broke 60,000G which is cool.

What the fuck? You need a wife to adopt a child? The game should let you role play as a single father who travels with his young adopted child. Children can't be harmed by anything, so they'd be a perfect meat shield. Fuckin' Skyrim.

Mark of the Ninja is amazing by the way.

Turns out you can without a wife but I just figured you'd be able to adopt any kid you want, not these beggar dicks that guilt trip you into adopting them. Bastards.

So now I have a daughter, this is not like the Sims.

Also did all the Werewolf Perks in one go without ever turning back human. There is a noticeable lack of living things in Skyrim now. Oh well.
