Seems like everyone's picking pretty good live bands.  
 
Except for the guy who mentioned Dragonforce. He/she might have been joking though. 
 
Anyway, if you're into metal/power metal at all, you should DEFINITELY check out Blind Guardian. They are personally my favorite band of all time. Check out the footage from the DVD "Imaginations Through The Looking Glass". That is an amazing concert! The song "Valhalla" in particular stands out as one of the best live performances I've seen. The audience are a big part in what makes Blind Guardian soooo good live.  
 
Hope someone checks them out. They are truly one of the most influential artists in their genre.

I'm only half interested in Chuck because I know Adam Baldwin is in it. 
I'm a Browncoat, so...

" I feel like I've returned from the wilderness. My clothes drab from bleaching under the desert sun. My mouth cracked and dry. I emerge from the seemingly never ending vastness of the unforgiving wastes and I can't believe my ears. People have put Mass Effect 1 back into their machines to remind/compare and lo... it was bad.
It was always that bad you silly, silly people. You just weren't paying attention. I've rarely seen such texture popping, the Mako was a joke they forgot to fix. But mostly, mostly the lies. Ohhhh the lies! Can no one remember all the stuff they said would be in the game that just never appeared? And my god. Running through the same base time after time after time. Don't even get me started on the AI, in fact I think I'm going to refuse to ever reffer to that as AI ever again. It was more like a two line script. See enemy. Run to enemy. Genius. It always was that bad. Welcome to the real world. "
I think you may be focusing too hard on what's not in the game and focusing too hard on the minor problems of the game. Yes, I agree the Mako is a fuckstorm to control, and the bases seem to be all the same, and the AI might suck, and the textures pop a lot. BUT, Mass Effect is STILL one of my all time favorite games. Simply because of the terrific story and main questline. The dialogue mechanic in Mass Effect is the best I've ever used in any game, period. And when the textures finally do show up, I think the character models still look fantastic to this day. And while the bases in the sidequests look all the same, you must admit that it is impressive the amount of sidequests there are in the game, and places to explore overall. Everything you've complained about seems to be pre-release hype that didn't make it into the game and actual problems in the game that I don't think marred the experience so much to label it as a bad game. Sorry, but Mass Effect should at LEAST be considered a good game!

" Dont get me wrong, I dont think this game looks bad. I mean, the game is awesome! But I cant help feeling that the hype Bioware gave about the graphical improvements dosent really stand up to the test. I distinctly think about the shadows when I say im not completly satisfied. I think it looks a bit too dark sometimes. I've tried to up the brightness, but I dont want to raise it too much, cause then I think the whole game looks a little shabby.  Anyways, any thoughts about this or on the graphic in general? What is good/bad? "
The graphics didn't impress me at first. Then when I got into the game I started to see improvements. Honestly, the character models and the detail in them are what impressed me the most immediately. Still, I don't really care about the graphics so much as the story and the gameplay. It's good enough in my opinion! :P

" Dragon Age Origins. I had zero intention of buying the game originally, but after seeing Dave's video review of it and hemming and hawing for a day or so I caved and got it and boy am I glad I did. I haven't had a new game that I could sink over 100 hours into and still be enjoying it for quite some time.  I also feel I should mention Torchlight here. That game came out of no where and after seeing the videos for it I took agamble and pre-purchased it from Steam since it was so cheap and the editor gave it the potential to deliver more than it's moneys worth. Thankfully it was a gamble worth taking. The game is so much fun. I love it! It also really makes you wonder what's the hold up with Diablo 3 since Runic Games was able to produce Torchlight in less than a year. Granted Runic Games are the guys who created Diablo, but still. "
I think I might get Dragon Age now. I'm in the same position, you know, the "hemming and hawing" stage. Sounds really fun.

I only played it to unlock Devil Jin I think. It was severely mediocre. But it wasn't unbearable. 
This new Scenario Campaign in T6 is pretty good I think, mostly because of the new fight system is more like the actual Tekken 6 gameplay.
