Metallica is one of my favorite bands. A friend recently got me to like SOAD (Yes, I know, pretty late to start liking them now, but meh). Queen is the best overall though. Brian May's Red Special... my-oh-my what a beauty! Ibanez is my personal favorite. Have you seen one of those Jem 7v7s? Or Joe Satriani's Ibanez? How about Steve Vai's Jem-Evo? Or the Steve Vai 20th Anniversary? That looks crazy wild. But the purest, and greatest guitar is: The Black Beauty by Gibson. The one with the Bigsby setup. I've only been able to play it once, but it is absolutely amazing. Great tone, smooth and beautiful fretboard... I own: An Orange Ibanez Acoustic (Not sure on the model) and a JS100. Also, I have a Marshall Amp and (real soon) a pedal :D So excited! Anyways, school... I used to perform in Junior High. Speaking of which, Math is my favorite and best subject. History a close second and science after that. By the way, I'm in a very, very happy relationship with my bestfriend, Adri!

Youtube.com The Forest
Most likely free, but you need a 3485739845738945 dollar computer to run this game. Note that the game is in Pre-Alpha and isn't at the height of it's visuals yet. Probably going to change the geometric shapes on some plants, maybe the hand, requires more curvature on the wrist. Anyways, it's designed to make you crap your pants. I can tell you with ease that this game will have one of the best visuals and effects this year, and maybe even several years later. How? The creators (They have 3 working on this full time) are experienced with video effects within the film industry (One ex: They worked on films such as 300). In which I can easily conclude these graphics are top notch. The game is single player and since it's Indie, it's PC only (TAKE IT CONSOLE PEASANTS!). They're focusing on finishing it for the Alpha, and then release it. Fix the bugs, then they can focus on multiplayer. They've already tested it, and have determined it to fit the game. It's a survival horror, build things like Minecraft. Stuff like that. Basically, you crash in a plane in the beginning, afterwards, you craft weapons, chop trees, build a small settlement for yourself. Be weary, at night, creatures will attack. Genetic mutants will be attacking you from all around. You can either defend, or take them head on. Discover the whole island. Indie Game of the Year it's released in my opinion.
*Created with Unity Engine 4*
Next game I want to talk about is Star Citizen
Youtube.com (Has a release date - November 2014. They rely on the funding of the game instead of big companies like EA to publish the game. So they need donations. So donate if you can. Donations = Alpha gameplay + Full game on November. Alpha is already released.)
This game here is made with the Cry Engine 3.
Top notch graphics as well, but again, take it console peasants, PC only.
Note: This game is possibly more demanding than The Forest. I'd say The Forest has better graphics than Star Citizen, but SC has bigger cells and will take up more memory. For example: GTX 780 - Can run it at the lowest - medium settings to get a steady Frame Rate.
Be a pirate. Be a merchant. Be a merc. Whatever you want. Amazing game. Really looking forward to it. Space simulation, that's also first person.
Now, hold it... I'm not done. The awesome part? Both are going to support the Oculus Rift. Don't know what that is? Basically, it makes you 'live' it. For example: Youtube.com
I want the OR to play these games sooooooo bad. Anywho, great games. Worth watching guys.
If you're deciding whether to get the Xbox One or the PS4, here are some pros and cons to both. Also, they both start out with 500 gb.
Is 50% faster than the Xbox One.
Can run games at better graphic settings.
Can run on 4k screens.
Exclusive games from Naughty Dog. Another exclusive series is Killzone.
Internal Hard drive is upgrade(able), meaning you can remove the internal Hard Drive to change it to a large one.
Free internet connection.
$100 cheaper than the Xbox
Touchpad on the controller.
You can use Used Games. If you wanna know how, watch this video:Youtube.com
Thinner and smaller than the Xbox One. Much more discreet as an entertainment centre.
Much improved control pad over the DS, easy to use.
No worries about online requirements.
Long term ownership.
Their exclusive games are utter crap compared to Xbox One (You'll see in a minute, because PS4's exclusive launch games include Resogun, Knack, and MLB 14: The Show).
Even though the hard drive is removable, if you're inexperienced you may damage it internally, so you have to repair/get a new one.
Although free, their internet servers aren't very good.
Just like Free 2 Play games, if you pay you get better things online (Playstation Plus - 49.99 for a year).
No external storage, just internal.
The same controller model.
Lack of Next-Gen vision, still relies on Disc Switching.
Comment: PS4's great. I'd take it over the Xbox One anyday. Except their launch titles are going to suck and it'll take some time before their good games come out.
Great launch titles, such as Halo and Forza Mortorsport 5. Not good? Well then... Ryse: Son of Rome (Amazing game), Dead Rising 3, Killer Instinct, Project Spark, Titanfall, Quantum Break, and D4.
Has great servers for online play. Good record for online services.
Reliable media and great UI performance.
Gives out 2 free games per month if you have Xbox Live Gold.
Definitely a next gen system philosophy with slick, fast User Interface, voice and gesture commands and seamless integration of all sofa-based entertainment. Fast switching, multi-tasking, snap mode has a thousand possibilities.
Skype for video call.
Large cloud advantage to 300,000 servers. Whereas Sony only has 30,000.
As much extra storage as you want through external storage.
Games launched instantly without disc switching.
Controller is a lot better than the crappy 360 ones. Great grip, overhauled D-pad, has a "surround rumble" and everything about it is revamped.
I read this somewhere, so this may or may not be true:
To fix the backwards compatibility issue, they allowed HDMI ports for anything, so you can play PC games on this. Even PS4 games can be played on it, as long as both are connected to each other.
24 hour check for internet connection. (Good thing it's been removed)
Huge size for a console.
Weaker than the PS4.
$100 more expensive
Used game restrictions. Once a game has been installed to an Xbox One, you cannot install it on another.
You can only stick to 500 Gb of internal memory.
Need Xbox Gold Membership for Netflix. Which is 64.99 per year.
Need to pay for online.
Comments: It's actually better in the long run. Can store more items, etc. And also, they have much better games. Truly lives up to its name of "Next Gen."
Overall: They're both pretty equal, actually. And since games now-a-days for consoles would install over 30gb each, there'd only be around 15-20 games at a time, unless you have external hard drives or a better internal hard drive. Worst thing is: No backwards compatibility, meaning games on the PS3 and Xbox 360 won't work on them.
$399.99 for the PS4 + 49.99 for the Playstation Plus (optional) membership for a year.
$499.99 for the Xbox One + 64.99 for the Xbox Gold Membership (required for online play).
PS: This is my first err.... let's call this a review. Hope you guys find it helpful.
Deep Purple - Smoke in the Water
Anyways, I'm thinking of doing some blogs. I don't know exactly what about, but for now, let's start with what I'll probably write. 'tis my first one.
Guitar reviews, game reviews, etc.
Anyways (I love saying anyways), we'd best get started with what kind of songs I play.
I play any and all genres, but I mostly play rock. When I get my Hollow Body Gibson/Ibanez/PRS, I'll start working on Jazz and Blues.
List of guitars that I want:
Crystalrocked.com 'nough said
Musiciansfriend.com 'nough said. If I got this, I'd name it Lucario.
Img.photobucket.com This beautiful Ibanez right here.
For my first blog, you get three wishes. And by wishes I mean things I wanna get. Today, they're guitars. The rest of my wishlist will only have one item.
List of guitars:
Fender Squire - Given to me by my uncle when he found out I was learning how to play a guitar. Has been in my possession since then (2 years ago). When I'm too lazy to get my other guitar, I use this instead. Mostly for practice though.
An Acoustic Epiphone (not sure on the model) - Was given to my brother from my uncle, but he never used it so I claimed it mine. We've had it since it was given to him (5 years ago). Yet it still sounds nice, problem is, I had lost the pegs for it 5 months ago. Haven't played it since.
An Acoustic-Electric Ibanez (Sage SGE220) - My first ever official guitar as I bought it myself after my dad gave me $300 when I went to Guitar Center. I tried out several guitars ranging from Fenders to Taylors. Gibsons to Ibanez. I ultimately chose this one because of its color and the way the fretboard felt. It is a truly great guitar for which I got at the price of $285, which also included the case. It's orange sunburst and looks sexy. It still has no name, so please, comment below about what it should be.
An Ibanez JS100 - My second guitar. I went to Guitar Center everyday for a week looking for a good guitar. This time, my budget was $800. Throughout the week, I saw and used beauties such as the Gibson Les Paul Jr, Gibson Explorer, and the Ibanez Jem 555. In one of the stores, I saw a room with 7 outstanding beauties. Three of them I didn't recognize, but they were PRS, Jackson, and I believe the other one was another PRS. These ones though, are what I remembered: Gibson Les Paul 60s Tribute, Fender Jagstang, and two beauties that really amazed me. A Black Beauty with a Bigsby setup. I've played my friend's, but it was an Epiphone, not the Gibson I saw there. And finally... an Ibanez Jem 7v7. Truly. A. Piece. Of. Art. Just plain amazing. I asked if I could play it... they laughed at me... so I just went on to the guitar section and started playing Snow on one of the Telecasters, they looked at me, but then I messed up at a note and they just continued working. So after a week's worth of exploration, I couldn't find a good one. I looked online and looked up guitarists such as Steve Vai and Joe Satriani, both recommended to me by a friend. I don't listen to either one, but I love their guitars. I saw the JS1000, a bit too expensive. Removed a zero and found a JS100 at the price of $400 online. I took the chance. Bam! I fell in love when I saw it waiting by the front door next to the mail(wo)man. She had me sign it and I brought it inside. For a whole week, I did nothing but jam by my computer, learning songs as I go.
Also, I own a Marshall Amp. It's got great qualities, but I have no idea exactly which Marshall Amp it is.
That's all for now. Next one will probably be just about who exactly I am.
Also, recommend a song for me to learn down there. And I may record myself (if mic sounds good) and I'll play it. But only the main riff(s) :3
