"Hey, Fang, when's that Jade II you promised coming out eh?"

"So, about the replacement for the HE-6...."

 

I'm sure he'll answer these.

 

On a more serious note, I do have some possible questions, so expect a PM I guess!

 

 

 

 

Oh... and....

 

 

 

 

Happy Burfday, DF!

Don't strain yourself too much, you old fart!

*thumbsup*

I like it. At least it doesn't have the awkward bump of the Sony.

Yea, but can it handle the 1.21 giggawatts needed to drop the beat without the awkward bump?

So far GTA V is not doing it for me. Game design is just frustrating, and I find myself failing missions before I even have a clear indication of what I'm doing. The gas grenade one where you have to find a van and get its cargo to pull off a heist for instance. I set the marker on the map where it's labeled *heist preparation*, and the game gives me GPS directions. I drive along following said directions, but suddenly the van spawns pretty far away from where the game is telling me to go, so literally I get "you lost the van!" before I could even see it because I'm driving where my GPS is telling me to go. So I restart and find the van on my own, but suddenly the game decides I'm not actively on this mission anymore because I didn't set the useless GPS marker which, for some reason, has reset. So I get a phone call with another mission in the middle of this current mission I'm trying to complete. Finally, on try # 3, I get to said van and try to shoot the back door like the game tells me to do, but for some reason the drive-by weapons don't work. Huh. They worked right up this point, and they worked afterward, but during the actual part with the van the game glitches out and lo and behold no drive-by shooting. Finally on try # 4 the planets align, and I can complete the stupid mission. Now, about the call the game tossed in my direction, maybe now I can... no, wait, the game insists I do the heist now and wont let me save after launching me into the mission.

 

So yeah, this game frustrates me on so many tiny little details that add up to a pretty annoying whole. Yes, it's an impressive game in many respects, but I find myself fumbling around often times trying to figure out the very narrow margin of what the game wants me to do rather than what I want to do. LOL. I suspect some GTA fans will argue with me about how I'm doing this or that wrong, about how I'm missing the point, etc. But damn if I didn't enjoy Saints Row IV so much more.

 

I'm still going to keep playing. Maybe it'll get better for me as time goes on or something.

Those are valid questions --- I will ask them in exactly that kind of tone! ;) Sure, I will add them to the list... as well as my own personal one, whether or not he'll release high-impedance earphones once again... I want a super hard-to-drive IEM, one that requires 6x gain tube amps... coil that voice coil!

Happy B-Day DF!

 

WRT GTA V:  While, in theory, the "more polished" missions should appeal to me, it seemed like a turn-off in the videos I've watched.  I find loose feeling gameplay more gratifying than not in these kinda games.  IDK, just makes me feel more like I'm actually doing a thing.

 

Sometimes I feel like I have some kinda gamer cortex in my brain that's rapidly decaying.  Yesterday I was telling my friend that "GTA V would probably seem more worthwhile for me if they just, like, put pieces of candy all around that huge map.  Then I could just run and jump around collecting them as some vague incentive to occupy and appreciate all the little nooks and crannies of this world..."  I mean, Crackdown was kind of like that, but its map didn't feel very polished and the super jump thing ruined some of the "exploration."

 

Or maybe I just don't like games as much anymore :/

 

Also, I don't actually have GTA V; I'm waiting to see if there'll be a PC port.

I should flog myself for not updating (read: actually writing one) my resume earlier, and not on the night before a huge career fair that most probably have resume drop points for a few companies. But nooooooooooope. I chose to procrastinate and now I have to burn the midnight oil and make a most probably passable at hopeful best of a resume. And even possibly without a character reference too, which is the biggest blow against myself that I can think of...

WHAT the flying heck? That's nifty looking... to bad I just got a Hm 801 q.q

 

and interesting story about the 801 pb1 combo I"m running [SE with modded w1000x]... it first of all buried my mStage n oDac [shocked :O and happy] it ALSO kicks' the AGD in the BUTT with SE vs SE :O the AGD SE lacks SOUND stage and imaging :O what! Some how the Hm 801 and pb1 have a better SE combo output than the AGD 10ES2 [of the balanced AGD out is epic]

 

I found that interesting, really makes me want to balance my w1000x though q.q
