    I learn from a YouTube channel called GuitarLessons365Song and he walks you through nicely a lot of songs - he's done tutorials for The Best of Times and Glasgow Kiss which I'm learning at the moment, might be handy when you pick the guitar up again :dontknow: I don't really like tabs that much but I think the best I can do atm is learn from the tab and compare myself to Dr Viossy :lol:

    Yeah I prefer either tutorials or just learning stuff by ear, although I'm definitely not up to that level on guitar yet! Yeah thanks am excited to start again. Will keep me off video games enough that I'm actually doing something productive

    I don't think I've got it any more, but it was along the lines of
    "with regret your application is not being taken any further, thank you etc etc" then the line that got me was " we are deeply sorry for the disappointment this has inevitably caused you"

    I just try and get the key words that the markscheme seems to highlight, one that springs to mind is "TOTAL" when describing "the principle of the conservation of momentum"

    Yeah, we've not properly started it yet but I had a look at it and I swear to god its essays
    Lmao what pricks

    Yeah I remember seeing that!

    Bleurgh, I don't mind but my teacher is just rubbish

    You aren't missing out too much in WoD but it is kind of fun. Garrisons are great, but LFR is an absolute joke at the moment, you can pull bosses right after clearing trash (typical LFR) and still be fine; wiping is almost impossible. Luckily I found a guild that raids during the weekends when I'm back at home so

    All I've seen on WoD so far is stuff that yogscast did on their livestreams, a few raids & I think they did a boss, but it looked reasonably easy.
    the garrisons look cool! my friend was showing me his, how you can get followers that make your stuff/do missions etc. the sending followers on missions bit with the probability of completion really reminded me of the assassins guild on AC :P yeah I heard blizzard are having problems with that :/

    will probably get it next summer tbf :P

    Imo the first two bosses on Highmaul are way too easy from a DPS point of view, but the bosses after that are actually quite fun and decently challenging. Summer will be a good time to get it I think :yes: but when I last played I only got the chance to do the last raid of the expansion, I'm looking forward to actually experiencing an entire expansion of raiding now :lol:

    I've always wanted to play the AC series, but it doesn't look challenging at all + I already know what happens and you can't skip cutscenes (I think?) so

    my favourite thing about the AC series is the compelling storyline and concept to be honest. It's not challenging especially on earlier ones as combat is mashing left click/X. However as the games progress they are trying to remedy that, the biggest noticeable jump is from 2 to Brotherhood imo.
    Yeah the cutscenes thing is annoying. They have a ridiculous amount of invisible walls to which pisses me off
    id still recommend at least 1, 2 and brotherhood

    So if I heard a straight melody I'd be able to harmonise virtually straight away, above & below

    Seems like the conversation has moved on but I do this too! If I'm listening to a song I naturally sing a harmony above or below and often find it much harder to sing the actual melody, I don't know why. :lol:

    If I want a compelling story I'd watch anime :lol: but tbf, the AC storyline is quite interesting. I still don't think the combat mechanics would be challenging enough for my liking. I really like the 'just frame' mechanic but most games are very forgiving and give you more than one frame to give you a bonus

    My favourite gaming franchise is the Devil May Cry series, love the combat mechanics in it (it's actually pretty damn hard to play stylishly which makes it even more fun ), I'm desperately hoping for DMC5 :moon:

    Arkham Asylum is amazing. I only bought one game in 2014(FIFA lol) but 2015 is looking decent hopefully ubisoft don't **** up too much with these exciting games.

    I need a new fallout game.

    hmm really? Have been meaning to start that and Dragon Age for a while now. Yeah, I too haven't bought much this year, what with new consoles etc. I know, I heard Watch Dogs was a let down which was upsetting since I'd been waiting for it since E3 2012
    fallout 4 would be most welcome !!! I'd also quite like a new bethesda one off game, like dishonoured style, really enjoyed that
