I just completed Arkham City and was quite underwhelmed. The plot was so god damn boring, you get sent to Arkham and then you're running about trying to find a cure for your disease, and then in the last hour all the plot happens. And the ending, oh god, it gives almost no closure (maybe because you have no idea what is happening half the game), Dr Strange dies, Joker dies, Ra's dies. But what happens next? What happened to 2 face? Harley? Mr. Freeze? A load of bullshit unanswered questions (unless it's answered in DLC, in which case FUCK YOU ROCKSTEADY, you don't leave out plot and explain with DLC, you're supposed to add plot and lore with DLC).

I don't get all the praise and I'm a pretty solid Batman fan.

Yeah, i'll admit the plot is getting a bit silly.

I have all the DLC but i'm probably close to beating the game on my first way through. The plot is a bit thick with cramming characters all up in this bitch, but I think if they had just kept it to Two Face, Ra's, Freeze, and presumably Joker, it might have been more streamlined. The interface is kind of aggravating, but at least they made it harder for me to not go into the entire game using Detective Mode for shits and grins, but scanning locations is now just barely useless. I do enjoy the side quests involving some lesser known villains though. The entire bit with Penguin should've fallen in this part as well. Some of the ambient nods, such as finding the alley your parents were shot in, were dope as fuck though. I think something related to the Scarecrow hallucinations should've wormed their way in this, to add to the overall atmosphere.

I've noticed that Batman is a real dick to everyone is Arkham City.

Finally unlocked the M47 in Peace Walker, so I'll be getting 150g for S-ranking every mission soon, the rest should be gravy from there.

Can't believe I'm actually gonna 100% this game, and I don't even know why. Peace Walker isn't even fun.

After 95 Hours of playtime, I can't lie to myself about ever enjoying it. At least it's nearly over.

with Torchlight 2 coming out in 2 weeks and Dota 2, I don't think I'll be touching my Xbox for a while, except maybe for RB Blitz.
There's just nothing exciting worth getting on consoles. ;__;

I'll probs get JSR HD on Steam

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?

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.

if it works as an electric drum kit, that's kinda cool. if not, it's the kind of shit i've gotten used to rory buying.

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.

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.
