So many games...so little time.

Have a whole week off work in at the end of January, so I'll have a good chance to get stuck into it then. If only I could stay away from the RB and GH games, I might actually get some other games completed.

Damn it Harmonix, we have a strange relationship, don't we?

You just can't seem to get it quite right. When RB1 came out we had to wait half a year to get our hands on it and when it did arrive the price was stupidly high.

So when RB2 rolled around it was a good chance to put things right, make up for past sins.

Then it all went pear-shaped again with a continual denials of release dates (leaving it to MS to leak the date in an ad campaign) and when it does show up, as magnificent as it is, the instruments fail to make the trip across the pond.

Why do you do this to me, Harmonix, why?

It's 2009 now and still no official word on RB2 instruments in the UK but MadCatz may have let things slip by confirming release dates for the cymbal add=ons for early Feb 09 - so it's probably a safe bet that the RB2 kit should be out by then.

Come on Harmonix, get the finger out.

So, it looks like it might by a Syndicate title that they are putting together for EA.

I loved the first two games back in the early 90's, so this could be awesome if they get it right.

    If you liked this check out Patton's stand-up albums:

    • Feekin' Kinda Patton
    • Werewolves and Lollipops

    I prefer Feelin' Kinda Patton out of the two as there are far more geeky references but they are both worth your time.

      Well, it's official. I at competitive multiplayer FPS's.

      I haven't played either COD4 or H3 in such a long time that my 'skills' are very rusty but, damn, my performances in the rounds I played was nothing short of embarrasing.

      Looks and plays nicely, BTW, for those interested. The pack of angry dogs for 7 kills in row in a bit odd - tonaly is seems very out of place. Bizzarre.

        Just received my Call of Duty Multiplayer beta code and I'm downloading it now.

        I'll pop back with an update once I've had a chance to have a few rounds.

            Well, I'm still waiting for EA to sort out my broken drum pedal from a couple of weeks ago. I've requested an RMA etc. but not heard a peep from the EA dudes at all and it's been bumming me out.

            After a slighty intoxicated perusal of eBay I came across a dude selling a Destroyer pedal. These have been pretty few and far between in the UK so far, so I jumped at the chance. It turned up yesterday and I've been super impressed by it so far. It feels completely different and really solid.

            I just need to get my drum chops together to justify it. I have RTTH left to beat to finish Hard difficulty and then I'm getting stuck into Expert.  I need to work on my rolls and off-beat bass drum action.

            Here's a pic of my new arrival:

            This is what awesome looks like

              Managed to make temporary repair to the foot pedal using the butterknives and duct tape method. It ain't pretty but definately works.

              I'm also bidding for a Destroyer pedal on eBay which will be sweet, if i win. 24 hours to go.
