  1. Dishonored

    Yup, Dishonored 2 is even better, came out in November. If you enjoyed the first one, get the second one now!
  2. The Gear Thread

    An OD isn't necessary, there is plenty of gain (4 tube stages + diodes) and it's bright enough to cut through a band mix no problem. The only rare instance I've used an OD with it, is with the onboard boosts disengaged for some tone coloring and tightening - not at all saying the amp needs it, putting an OD in the chain just gives you access to a different type of tone. 90% of the time though I'm plugging straight into the head with nothing in between. If I needed to, I could sell all of my gear except my 68RI and this head, and still be 100% satisfied with my tone. It's just fun to try other gear. I have a few pretty good music stores near me in the DC area, but I'm lazy and rarely go to them. So I just wheel and deal a lot via forums, Reverb, Craigslist, etc.. Here's a picture of the R8, it had an amazing top, but it was just missing something abstract, good guitar though: And the R9, I actually switched the pickups out for a new set, they're uncovered zebra - this is an older picture:
  3. The Gear Thread

    I have never played an actual Jubilee, I'd like to. I'm not sure if they're for me though. You can get some surprising deals on them if you go for the black tolex version from the original run. You're amp is a Fender, Deluxe or Hot Rod? I can't recall. Good for ODs though. Is the Nano Looper just a small looper pedal? My main amp is still my Gower modded '77 Marshall 1959. That's been my main amp since February 2016. I've been getting into guitarsmore since getting the amp. I've been through a few R guitars, and the R9 I have currently is the best of the bunch. Though, still not as good as the 68RI, but nothing is lol.And along the way I also got a pretty good deal on a 2007 LP Classic Custom, which I'm currently selling.
  4. The Gear Thread

    So it looks like I drafted this post months ago and never posted it. This thread is way too low in the forum, so here's a bump: The DSL5C is probably what you want, unless you don't have volume restrictions. Then the DSL40C is the best value (used). Like SoundofaGun said, a JMP or JCM will really be too loud for most scenarios. With an attenuator and fancy audio gear, you can tame that volume, but it's expensive - and to be honest, a $400 DSL40C can do the job just as well as a JMP or JCM, though it won't sound exactly the same of course. The JVM can do lower volume, but I found that it sounds processed and compressed at low volumes... and it's a compressed sounding amp to begin with. The JVM1C is cool though. Yup, I owned one. Good amp, sold it for a slight profit, but months later wished I hadn't parted with it. I am thinking about the new Boss Katana series 1x12, for an easy to dial in/transport option for gigs and rehearsals where a 4x12 is not doable, or too much of a hassle. Anyone play one of these yet? Also looks like I'm gonna pickup a Bogner OS 2x12 for similar reasons.
  5. DOOM - Campaign Trailer 4th Feb 2016

    I've heard rumours of a sequel? I'd play it.
  6. Final Fantasy

    I've seen mostly positive reviews, so this is a bit surprising. Either way, I won't play until there's a PC version, and even then I may not play. FF has gone from fantasy to steampunk to futurism over the course of the series, which is fine, any series this long needs a freshening up IMO, but I really prefer the earlier, fantasy-esque games. I do remember watching early trailers for XV, and thinking "this is the least Final Fantasy-looking game in the series so far." I just bought the HD X/X2 remaster, having an absolute blast with that. Probably won't do X-2, but the price was low enough that I'm OK with that. After 15 years.... I have finally gotten the fucking Jecht Shot right. And god damn, I forgot just how badass Auron was.
  7. Dishonored

    /bump
  8. Dishonored

    C'mon who's played? I know you're out there MyGNR Corvos.
  9. Dishonored

    I was looking for a new series to play that was in my area of interest (fantasy, historical, sci fi, epics, etc.), Dishonored has always been in the periphery of my gaming interest, so I found a deal and bought the first game. WOW, I wish I played back in 2013, absolutely terrific game. I finished the first one in about 14 hours (which is too short to be honest). I had never played a game like this before, the first 3 or 4 levels I just powered through the maps and took out the objective. I didn't realize that a big part of the game is finding the runes/bonecharms/paintings and getting bonus objectives and really immersing yourself in the environments. I will probably give the first one a replay in a few months. On to the second one... WOW X2, so fucking good. About half way through my first run (Corvo), going to do an Emily run immediately after. Jindosh's Mansion is a masterpiece level, and right now I'm in Aramis Stilton's place with the timepiece - this game just keeps flooring me with something new and insaneeach level. The innovation, great story, great combat/stealth, and immersive maps really make this an absolutely premier video game.
  10. What Are You Listening To 2016

  11. Battlefield 1

    Hardcore, finally. It's more hardcore than ever before! Two complaints though: their Suez "fix" didn't really do anything. And TKs are a bit out of control., and with no !p system it's a bit frustrating. I punish for being retarded in BF. Accidents happen, but if you're driving a jeep across a flat field and run me over while I'm running toward a base, you're deserve a punish. Likewise, I fully admit at times I deserve a punish myself. Overall though, very glad to see it's here and play it. Much more immersive and realistic experience IMO. And now I get to pretend I'm good since snipers are 1 hit, and rifles are 2-3 hits tops. And yeah, what card did you get? I'll be doing a new build early 2017 likely.
  12. The Grand Tour!

    Knew it was going to be great, glad to see it is. Thought it was terrific, probably better off with Amazon than they were with the BBC! I'm holding Jeremy accountable to his original promise, Jennifer Clarkson. I'm betting he was already planning on redoing his house anyway, with his new big Amazon paycheck. Can't say I'm surprised at the result of the race given their track, I think the surprise isn't that the McLaren lost, it's that the LaFerrari was so close to the Porsche. I wish they would release the Nurburgring times though, that would be a more accurate measure of which is fastest, IMuneducatedO.
  13. Battlefield 1

    What card did you get?
  14. Don't know why it took me so long to get this, guess I had too many other games queued up first. Anyway, downloaded and play about an hour this morning. Starting with a Strider, then I plan to pick Warrior, then Mystic Knight as magic looks awesome from the YT videos I've seen. I randomly found 10K gold lying in a shop in the starting city too, so that was cool. Combat is good ol' hack and slash fun. Graphics are solid enough. Overall seems like a good stereotypical RPG.
  15. Mass Effect
