Re: Rock Band

I only played 1 song with the mic on easy and it was easy to pass the song. Just hit the note and correct breaks and I passed. The game was pretty forgiving since I'm pretty sure I wasn't "AWESOME!"...

Re: Rock Band

I don't play any instrument and drums are hard as hell for me. I can't pass medium so starting with easy and it's pretty straight forward to get the beat down. Sometimes I do want to throw down more...

Re: xbox live in NYC

I most likely will move out to Queens (or possibly abroad) after the lease is up here and AFAIK, FIOS hasn't gotten to a majority of Queens yet. /images/graemlins/frown.gif

Re: Rock Band

I just tried every instrument. Looks like you can do a solo career play with each one and 4 difficulty levels so this should be interesting.

I was able to play a couple of games on live with a...

Re: xbox live in NYC

I have RCN (would not recommend it for Cable TV) and have no problems with LIVE or lag at any hour of the day or night. If I were staying here longer, I'd easily gone for FIOS. But they need a 12...

Re: xbox live in NYC

Yes, FIOS is now available. I'm on the UES near 95th street and they hooked it up in our building a few months ago. Even had reps in the lobby trying to get people to sign up.

Re: Rock Band

This game is awesome period.

If GH3 came out just 3 weeks later, I wouldn't have bothered to buy GH3 all together. At least I can salvage the wireless guitar controller in my cramped apartment. ...

Re: Etrade Potential Bankruptcy?

Also when a deal is announced, volatility collapses making options much much cheaper.

Re: Guitar Hero III

The GH3 guitar is wireless and takes 2 AA batteries. If that doesn't matter to you much, then just stick with GH2 guitars.

My problem with Oanda and all these 'FX' shops popping up everywhere is broker risk. Frankly, I just don't trust them with 100k of cash. I might very well be wrong about the risk but I would feel a...

Re: Jim Rogers Buying the Yuan

I have a small account at Oanda. All these are outright purchase.

For a large position, it might be safer to buy a futures contract from CME.
