So I've got a rift in my house finally and I need recommendations on what to get for it.

ATM I have downloaded a scuba simulation some solar system thing and a crappy "horror game" called affected or something.

All of them are...well, kinda shit. I mean they all work, but they are more like amusement rides or proof of concept tech demos than actual worthwhile experiences.

Anything a bit more impressive/substantial out there? I'd be willing to drop a few bucks.

Meh I look at game reviews the same way as movie reviews, find a reviewer who likes the same kinda shit as you, read their stuff.

Games and music reviews seem to line up a bit more than game and movie reviews. In that both use a lot of references to other music/games.

I'm just happy that not one but, two!, people agree with me that Fallout NV was the best game of last generation, that game is a bloody masterpiece and is criminally underrated.

My top 5 from last years GOTG list

1.Fallout New Vegas

2. Rock Band 3

3. Saints Row 2

4. Skyrim

5. GTA 5

@xcobracommander:

I'm in my late 20's now and I really don't listen to any current music anymore. I'm firmly supplanted in a nice nostalgic rut with music from the 80's and 90's.

Primarily ATM you'll find me listening to a lot of Synthwave, Lounge, and death rock/goth. I go though phases with music, where i'll only listen to a few styles, then the stuff I liked gets added to a growing pile of what I consider "good shit" so my tastes just continue to grow.

The last three things played on my phone were Beastmilk, Kavinsky, and Babylon Whores.

Tell me about some of this lounge music if you would please. Give some examples too.

So its generally older music sort of jazzy, but not really Jazz or big band but an offshoot of those, its generally kind of quirky, primarily instrumental but voices/singers are included sometimes. A lot of it sounds like 50-70's movie score, and a lot of the composers did work in movies too.

Not really talking about lounge singers, though I don't mind lounge singers (I have soft spot for Tony Bennett and Dean Martin), nor do I mean modern lounge, which seems like average house music to me most of the time.

A basic idea of what i'm talking about:

@djou:

No I was talking about the T-Bone mission where the bad dudes invade his compound, once Ministry started playing, he locked onto some cover and wouldn't budge even with everyone dead. If I blew him up with grenades he ran back to the same piece of cover.

Then he did it again once we got to the last section of the mission just before the tunnel.

i know this is nothing new but fuck escort missions. I've been playing watchdogs and I had probably the most aggravating couple of hours of play I've had in a very long time. There Is a mission kinda near the end where you have to protect this dude while a bunch of bad guys try to kill both of us. Anyway he dies a few times, no biggie, mission restarts it's total bullshit but that's escort missions. However the shitty game keeps breaking, over and over, I clear out the guys we are supposed to move forward but the guy doesn't move. I restart the mission, the same thing one spot further on over and over. I turn o the game off turn it back on and I get stuck at the initial spot again. Then I have the bright idea to start a different game, get it out of the system memory. That fixes it the fucking asshole actually moves and I beat the mission.

In a game so weirdly made some of it is really slick some like the traffic totally fucked ( just park a care in the road) traffic will just back up eternally, the ai won't go around your car)don't add weird things that can fuck up, especially in story required missions.

I fly quite a bit, and I do a lot of perth to Sydney to LA, more than 20 hours in transit, if you do it enough you will learn to sleep on flights, even in economy.

It's got to the point that even short flights, like to bali or melbourne in the middle of the day put me to sleep. My body goes "on a plane, time for sleep".
