    Bad News as my SR4 hypothesis was wrong.
    The good news is I still don't have the urge to buy SR4 DLC until Volition moves onto SR5 without making a SR4 With DLC Included or PSN is removed from PS3.

    If SR4 is free, I'll definitely play it.
     
    I love Dust.. I understand the compulsion to grind it. I got 100% in every area on the map.

    Since no one has posted about May's PS Plus Collection yet.
     
    http://blog.us.playstation.com/2014/04/24/preview-mays-instant-game-collection/
     
    Here's hoping next month's PS Plus collection is huge. And also proves my hypothesis right if SR4 becomes free next month. For those of you that don't know (or remember since I've stated this before) SR2 was on PS Plus during E3 2012 & SR3 was on PS Plus during E3 2013.
     
    Coincidentally this month's Games With Gold on Xbox 360 will be giving away SR3 in the later half. For me that means I will now own SR3 5 times. PS3 SR3, PS3 SR3 Full Package, PS3 SR3 PS Plus, PC SR3, Xbox 360 SR3 GWG.
     
    Currently though GWG is giving away Dust: An Elysium Tale. Since that's an RPG I got myself more addicted to grinding than finishing the game.... So someday I'll finish it.

    I wonder what happened to Ryu & Ken. Even though you probably don't know either.

    That reminds me of an older dream I had where I didn't remember why I was killing cops, but I had lightning powers similar to what was in Infamous. I was at the library of a former hometown near the entrance gladly killing cops outside. My electric powers eventually & instantly ran out. I was then approached by my sister who came from the backdoor about having to go to my court trial. So I go only to find out I still have to wait for my court case to be heard behind all of these domestic disputes. I even ask why isn't my trial happening right now or even national news. I am then told its a busy day & I have to wait for my trial. So while waiting I tried to get my lightning powers back. It didn't happen as I ended up waking up.

    Part of me is excited yet terrified of this Bundle. That comes from back in my N64 years of the 1990's. Back before I had Internet or (fully) acknowledged the ESRB. A time where I refused to own kiddie games. (Not counting LoZ since I didn't really acknowledge the ESRB.) My Teen years. Back then all my games had to define me as a "Bad Ass"....
     
    And then I got Shadow Man. Shadow Man then made me more afraid of Dead Side than Hell. Everything in Dead Side is miserable that by the time I reached Hellfire & Brimstone area that actually seemed more positive. Unfortunately I never beat this game as I got lost in whatever I was suppose to do. But after enough time in Dead Side....
     
    I bought Harvest Moon 64. Another game that became one of my favorites. But that's a whole different topic.
     
    Also Jaunty is Awesome.

    Even if the original sentinels look kind of goofy I can't help but to find that big white circle on these ones as an eye sore.
     
    I think Marvel is in the process of removing Mutant Origins for certain characters that appear in Avengers more than X-Men. Quite frankly the only reason to why Fox tried to associate all mutants or mutant related characters to X-Men was to prevent other studios from making movies.
     
    Like how there was a plan to try to make Deadpool a spin-off of Blade.
     
    Speaking of Deadpool (IF they ever make the movies) I'd still want to see the first as Rated R.
     
    Marvel could still however get Deadpool back if or when its pointed out that Weapon-X is part of the Weapon-Plus program that goes all the way back to trying to recreate the Captain America program.
     
    But would I really want to see a guy who kind of looks like Spider-Man, with guns, history as a mercenary, & hamburger looking face in a PG-13 movie?.... I'm pretty certain I already saw that movie.... *cough*spawn*cough*.... Honestly Deadpool shouldn't do that. Especially since he came out over a year before that other guy who basically sounds a lot like what he already is.... Well minus cape.

    I got my (first) Windows 7 PC today. I'm glad I didn't need a new monitor.
     
    Aside from better Wallpaper options this feels dumbed down. How could they ruin Control, Alt, Delete? Or remove where the mouse cursor option were? (Edit: Found them! I'm glad I can use inverted mouse cursors again!)
     
    Also I need to remember to get a new spell check as I don't trust myself with proper spelling.... Or not... I think its already correcting my spelling for me.... At least it can't embarrass me about my grammar.... yet.
     
    I'm uncertain if I'll ever want Windows 9 as I'm beginning to miss Windows XP already despite that it was on a crappier PC. I can only wonder if Windows 9 will be a dumbed down version of Windows 7.

    Sounds like EA is trying to copy Games With Gold & PS Plus. I refuse to have an Origin Account since I'm certain Origin is evil.

    If M. Night Syamalon was the director he'd hopefully have the brains for the plot twist to be the trainers actually being slaves to poke'mon.... Thus somehow breaking the 4th wall when it comes to people playing poke'mon.... Because they are somehow slave to it....
     
    Still I'm waiting for the reboot of Dragon Ball. Where JJ Abrams directs it. The ultimate finishing move in it will be Solar Flare. /sarcasm

    Another Video Game Dream & it was kind of confusing. I couldn't tell whether I was playing SR4 or GTA5. It had the super powers of SR4 but I was fighting the Ballas from GTA5. So it was Purple vs. Purple. Although I had to be somewhere else during the final battle over the city. As one of my crew members was blowing up the Ballas HQ piece by piece.
     
    So I ended up driving around until I had to use a public rest room. Where I would then discover some nearby Ballas looking for me. No worries I thought I'd just press The Pause Button only to find out it doesn't pause the game but turn the screen purple. So I had to skip using the rest room & kill them all. Which was pretty easy to do because they didn't have super powers.
     
    After their deaths their Lieutenant showed up. He ends up looking like Hannibal Chau from Pacific Rim but with Batou's eyes from GitS & was wearing a purple suit. Or was that just Hannibal Chau as his glasses are kinda round & his suit is a little purple.
     
    Even more confusing as the Ballas are exclusively  African American. In any case I easily defeated him or would have if he wasn't immortal. So even though I now have him by the legs forcing his skull into the ground he still won't die. I eventually woke up & had to go use the bathroom.
  24. Myk JL liked a post in a topic by Sledgstone in Music Recommendations?   
    Over the past month I've been listening to a large collection of top hits from the 90s. Its 250+ songs that I've listened through a couple times now. I thought I liked the 90s, but honestly over half these songs were crap to me. Mostly because there were so many love songs and rap songs in the mix. Some love songs were ok, but after listening to so many they become annoying to me. This mix must not have been that good because it was lacking alot of rock and hit country songs from the time.
     
    I've listened to some rap in the past, but I can honestly say that I can't stand the genre at all now. After listening to the hits from the 90s, almost all rap seems to follow the same patterns. First off, there is no actual singing unless its the chorus and almost every chorus is a woman singing about something that doesn't appear to have anything to do with the actual context of what the rapper is talking about. I know rapping is people stringing words together, but I realize that I want to hear actual singing in my music and not some guy talking fast.
     
    Anyway, in the majority of rap songs I've listened to.. the rapper is always talking about 1) How hes better than everyone else in terms of: has more money / hoes / material possessions / drugs / best raps / etc. that are all better than everyone elses and everybody is jealous and wants to emulate them. 2) Is talking about abusing and taking in excess: sex with random women with no love involved / smoking the hell out of some weed / drinking alcohol. 3) Violence such as: Shooting people that talk shit about them / glorifying themselves in terms of killing people in their past / potentially killing more people.
     
    So.. yeah.. Rap music seems pretty shitty to me. Of course, much of this can be considered gansta rap and that other rap could be more wholesome or have better context. Will Smith had some decent rap songs, I also enjoyed Tupac's "Dear Mama". Mostly because it was about the guy's past and the song was actually about something instead of just talking about being an amazing person that throws money at the cameras while wearing gold chains in music videos. There was also a song from Bone Thugs N Harmony called Crossroads that was decent. I couldn't make out half the words, but at least these people were singing and it was about their dead friend.
     
    P Diddy / Puff Daddy / Sean Combs seems to be one of the worst rappers I've ever heard. He is literally talking in almost every song while sampling everyone else's songs. I listened to "I'll Be Missing You" and I can't stand the song because its a sample / remix of The Police's "Every Breath You Take". P Diddy should have never touched that song. I've also listened to some Eminem but I can't seem to enjoy it that much. I think his best song was "Stan".
     
    I watched and rewatched the videos posted in this topic.. So far I really enjoyed the Hair Metal videos the best. Rob Zombie seems a bit too harsh for me but not as bad as Nirvana. I've owned an Alice in Chains and Stone Temple Pilot cds in my past and those are still good to me. Bloodhound Gang has some funny songs and I own one of their cds, but they don't interest me that much now.. Pantera has a couple good songs like Dragonforce, but some of their other songs are too harsh or I can't make out what they're saying. I think I'll try a few more of their songs tho. I liked that "Aint no rest for the wicked" song. I like the Vikings theme probably because I associate it with the show. System of a Down seemed a bit to broken up with political moments in the videos, but some of the lyrics and beats were good.
     
    That Remind me video reminded me of Habbo and Portal because of how the characters and buildings are presented.. other than that I didn't like any of those songs Pchan. I think the main reason is because most of them had a repeating beat that gets stuck in my head. Once a beat becomes the most noticeable aspect of a song instead of lyrics or tempo changes, it starts to drive me nuts.
     
    Thanks again everyone for helping me narrow down some of the songs that I now enjoy. Next, I'll try listening to some top hits of the 2000s+ and trying some more rock and hair bands. Maybe some Metallica and some older Godsmack. I remember I liked Godsmack's first CD, maybe they had a few more that were good that I missed.
