  1. Need your help!

    Perfect Crime documentary would be my number one pick. Would love a remastered version of the 17th July 1993 Buenos Aires gig. Indiana '91 gig with the live debut of Estranged would be nice. Would be curious to hear demo(s) of Estranged and YCBM, don't think there are in any circulation.
  2. Here we go, found the groupie quotes:
  3. Who was the MyGNR member who had a bunch of groupie quotes regarding each GNR member in their sig? I remember Matt's was along the lines of "fucks like a rockstar and is a pro at eating pussy". Guess this book confirms it
  4. Games I recently completed (all on PC): Wolfenstein: The Old Blood - Nice Standalone expansion to The New Order, but I've been spoiled by DOOM Eternal's fast-paced combat. Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut - Really liked this. Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Deluxe Edition - Absolutely loved this, can't believe it was so derided upon its release, the DLC is fantastic as well. Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance - The first half is a bit of a slog and it has "DOOM 2016 Syndrome" where it's obvious it had a split development and thus split personality in its final form. It'd be fantastic to have a DOOM Eternal style sequel where they focus on fast-paced combat, but the second half of this entry is already a ton of fun. Heavy Rain - The dialogue is absolutely awful, and the story ludicrous. Hats off to David Cage though for somehow getting a ton of money for his awful scripts. Prince of Persia: Sands of Time - Classic 3D platformer, I miss these kind of games where it isn't just "hold forward on the analogue stick" to climb and jump etc. What Remains of Edith Finch - More of an interactive experience than a "game", but wow is it transcendental. Just over two hours but absolutely beautiful, would definitely recommend. Journey - Another transcendental two hour experience, especially when another player drops in your session. Currently playing: Beyond: Two Souls - Another David Cage game, dialogue isn't quite as bad as Heavy Rain and it's fun playing as the spirit, but I still couldn't recommend this. D4: Dark Dreams Don't Die - Total madness from Japanese auteur Swery, creator of Deadly Premonition. Batshit insane, simple and fun. Yakuza Kiwami - Yakuza 0 is one of my favourite games but this one isn't quite grabbing me in the same way, still decent.
  5. I think it's Robin as it's dated March 2000 on the CD, and most of those tracks seem like the pre-Bucket stuff (e.g. Chinese Democracy), Bucket had only been in the band a few months at that point. It's mostly the tracks dated November 2000 that sound Bucket-y to me.
  6. Do you mean higher than the orchestral strings in the mix? I've only listened to the '06 demo maybe two or three times, can't really remember it beside the missing intro and lack of the super deep backing vocals compared to the album version.
  7. Wasn't just the title track that had great bass that got buried in the mix. TWAT and Riad had some really good bass parts, the latter especially is almost bass-driven in the demos.
  8. Yeah, I don't think there has been any other reference to Perhaps or Nothing before the locker leaks so it would be a pretty big coincidence that they got two track titles right by chance.
  9. Not usually the biggest fan of his solo stuff but I really dig this.
  10. I remember when the RRHOF lineup (Myles + Slash + Gilby + Duff + Matt) were part of the Kings of Chaos lineup in 2013 for a couple of shows in South Africa. Was surprised they didn't do more KOC shows with that lineup but I guess it was likely a combination of egos, paycheques, and the likes of Slash preferring to focus on their own projects.
  11. DOOM Eternal

    SunhiLegened playing the game, he's an absolute beast:
  12. DOOM Eternal

    Finally completed the game on Ultra-Violence. Bloody brilliant, a masterpiece of first-person shooter game design. Exhilarating to the point of exhaustion, I had to take frequent breaks to stop my heart pounding out my chest. With DOOM 2016 I could spend hours at a time playing the game, but with Eternal I think the most I managed was an hour at a time. There were moments I'd pass a checkpoint and enter a motherfucker of an arena and just quick to desktop because I knew I was too tired to properly play. That said, I still think Eternal is far superior. Loved the lore which is something I'm not normally into, but I'm a sucker for riffs on Judaeo-Christian mythology. My first (and favourite) Sandman comic was Season of Mists and I read through the Preacher series years ago. I've ordered the physical version of the art book after downloading the free sample of the e-book, can't wait to get my hands on it. In 2016 I wasn't that diligent about going through the Codex but here it a) provided a welcome respite and b) had kick-ass artwork. I wasn't against them going third-person for certain cutscenes, but I felt the direction for a lot of these scenes was quite flat, with the best ones sticking to the first-person view.
  13. Slash - November Rain outro solo Slash - SCOM solo Slash - Nightrain outro solo Bucket - TWAT solo Finck - TIL solo Honourable Mentions: Slash - YCBM solo Bumble - Catcher solo (I prefer it to the May version... ) May - Atlas Shrugged solo
  14. I can't find that one right now, but is that the same as bluesy one he played at other shows in '06 and '07, e.g. Mexico 2007? Really dug that. Of all the songs to end with a fade on the album, it had to be Nightrain Such a shame, the outro solo is fucking killer live when played in full.
