It's a good deal if you want a full set of Refraktor (and if they have them at your location)

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 November 2019 - 04:43 PM)

Here we can buy two and get one free, but at least two of them are gonna be the same toy, because lol distribution.

In the U.K., it’s more like you but two, you only get one given how expensive they are.

@  Maximus Ambus : (15 November 2019 - 12:49 PM)

It was set in the forties, featured Nazi's as the villains and had Kiko fight mostly Ice Age animals and a mythical dragon that now ruled the island guarding Kongs treasure.

@  Paladin : (15 November 2019 - 11:37 AM)

and it was ALSO eleven hours long.

To be fair to boba: everyone else to go into the sarlacc was a sacrifice. Stripped almost naked and tossed, and didn't have body armor, a jetpack and a weapon.

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 November 2019 - 06:54 AM)

Nah, he just has to keep up his plot insurance payments so he can shoot his way out of the Sarlacc again.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2019 - 03:55 PM)

Admittedly, it's been a long time since I've been to a walk-in clinic, as I tend not to get sick (and the one time I do every 4-5 years, I prefer just riding it out at home), but the last time I went I'm pretty sure you could just show up, no appointment. It may be different in Quebec,though

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:36 PM)

One thing to note about health insurance in Germany is that we have a two-class system: mandatory health insurance is basically the economy class, while private health insurance is the business class.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:32 PM)

My local doctor is actually a shared office with several doctors where you will get randomly assigned to one of the doctors available that day.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:30 PM)

Also, employers are required by law to cover part of their employees' health insurance fees, so I only have to pay my part.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:28 PM)

Basic examinations and sick notes (known as "work-inability certificates" in Germany) for the employer are covered by our health insurances by default.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 November 2019 - 12:02 PM)

Around here, we can go to a walk-in clinic whenever, but might have to wait in the queue until there's a doctor available, which can take hours on a busy day. And then hope our insurance will cover anything.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 November 2019 - 07:38 AM)

There actually are a good number of clinics around here: but the walk ins require an appointment (what?) and are only done once a week. IF you can get an appointment, you see a doctor usually within 40 minutes, but good luck getting the appointment.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 03:35 AM)

Depending on the day.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 03:35 AM)

We have family doctors (called "house doctors") with regular office hours where you may need an hour or two of waiting time.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2019 - 12:50 AM)

Two weeks? That seems a little long; are there not a lot of walk-in clinics around you?

@  wonko the sane? : (13 November 2019 - 07:01 PM)

Does germany make it quick and easy to see a doctor too? Cause an emergency doctor visit can take two weeks out here, and an emergency ROOM visit can take 18-24 hours.

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:43 PM)

(Good thing is, under German law, if you call in sick during your vacation and see a doctor immediately, you get to keep your vacation days.)

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:42 PM)

Too bad. My plans wee to do two more overtime hours before having my last day of vacation for the year on Friday. Oh well.

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:41 PM)

So I'm currently on medical leave for a particularly stupid reason: Burned my back with a hot-water bag while sleeping last night. Though the doctor said I'm hardly the first person to have this happen to them.

@  Patch : (13 November 2019 - 06:11 PM)

Just a particularly odious example of the 90s era of depicting transgender women as either the subject of crude humor, or "Jerry Springer" material.

@  Paladin : (13 November 2019 - 10:45 AM)

sonics' still gonna be a terrible movie but at least they whined loud enough to make him look passable for a 2-minute trailer. "yay."

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 November 2019 - 10:37 AM)

But of course to annoying people there's no such thing as different decisions made for different reasons, there is only "I like it so it's right" and "I don't like it so it's wrong."

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 November 2019 - 10:35 AM)

Even if we pretend it's objective truth that they were both bad, then they were bad in very different ways.

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 November 2019 - 10:33 AM)

Sonic's previous movie design looked genuinely bad. The Transformers '07 designs just looked insufficiently like what certain loud and obnoxious parts of the fandom think Transformers are required to always look like.

@  Otaku : (13 November 2019 - 08:50 AM)

Um... Purple Monkey Dishwasher?

@  TheMightyMol... : (13 November 2019 - 08:25 AM)

Do we really need to have Every Movie Transformer Thread Ever in the Squawkbox?

@  Bass X0 : (13 November 2019 - 08:13 AM)

Sure it made money but that doesn’t mean it has appealing character designs. Lot of god awful fugly faces in the Transformers movies.

@  Otaku : (12 November 2019 - 08:25 PM)

@Liege My issue with Transformers (2007) were elements I thought were unnecessary.  I know it was supposed to just be a joke, but I didn't ever need to hear about "Sam's Happy Time". >.> Which, being in awe of the first "live action" TF-film, didn't even register until I'd already purchased and watched it on DVD a few times (after seeing it in theaters 3 times).

@  Liege : (12 November 2019 - 08:22 PM)

For all the Bayisms in the 07 movie, it was tempered by Spielberg as producer. Designs aside it was an enjoyable popcorn blockbuster about a boy and his first car who happens to be an alien from another planet. They sequels are just Bay going unchecked after he proved how much bank he could bring in.

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 November 2019 - 07:12 PM)

I didn't find the designs in the '07 movie to be that bad, personally. What got really offputting was how Cybertronians in general become such huge a-holes in the later films; the designs were very much secondary to their horrible personalities

@  Sabrblade : (12 November 2019 - 06:59 PM)

And yet, Transformers still broke the bank at the box office, opened up the brand to a whole new generation of fans, shot the brand up to mainstream appeal, and enabled all kinds of new collector-oriented lines and other avenues to come about. Not saying Sonic's movie will do the same for his series, but the 2007 TF movie certainly did more good than harm.

@  Bass X0 : (12 November 2019 - 06:09 PM)

Paramount changed Sonic due to fan backlash but refused to redo Transformers 2007 with new cgi appearances based on their classic forms everyone’s knows and loves, and can relate to. Trailer 1 Sonic is as appealing a design as 2007 Bumblebee...

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 November 2019 - 02:14 PM)

I don't. They're a pain in the ass to repair.

@  Benbot : (12 November 2019 - 12:48 PM)

I wish car companies would bring back flip up headlights

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 November 2019 - 09:07 AM)

All the songs mentioned sound would be great. I would love to have some Guns N' Roses songs, yeah I know its a long shot, but I want to rock out to Estranged or November Rain. I also wouldn't mind the Velvet Revolver songs from Guitar Hero 3, especially Messages (love that song).

It's primarily vocals and mandolin, at least for the minute or so I could tolerate it. I don't think it would really be well-suited for the game.

Can't view that particular video at work, but it has all the instruments required in the studio version. The manodlin lines could be combined with the guitar bits like they have done with some keyboardy songs.

Next week is the ENTIRE Screaming For Vengeance album! You gotta nother thing comin!

Maybe, I'm just saying, that first two minutes would be boring as hell for the drummer and bassist. Not really a good "band" song.

Judas Priest is the first full album DLC? Meh. I say to you, meh. But at least they're finally starting with the albums.

Its more a guitar/vocal song, I admit, but there's some kickin' drum bits. Hell, I don't think Maps even had a bassine orginally. Some songs are just like that.

Yeah, I love Gouge Away, will def. be getting that one. Cars, meh. JUDAS MOTHERhugIN PRIEST!

I would really have liked a greatest hits since most of my friends I play with aren't as intimately familiar with the Priest catalogue, but bully for me. Something like:

Better By You Better By Me
Breakin' The Law
Living After Midnight
Turbo Lover
Electric Eye
You Got Another Thing Coming
Metal Gods
Painkiller

I totally forgot to include my #1 wish which will never happen. Life of Agony's Love To Let You Down:


www.youtube.com/watch?v=oOvFNWBcYUc

(can't view Youtube at work, hope the link works)

Yes I know this is from their latest album and is a bit Velvet Revolverish and yes, most hardcore LOA fans would prefer something from River Runs Red, but dammit I love this song and would fit on the game perfectly.

Okay, when putting this together I tried to think about what makes a good Rock Band song: ideally, something that's fun to play with others, that's primarily guitar/bass/drums/vocals, and that has strong melodies for all parts. Also tried to keep it under 10 major suggestions, and add links and comments, so this won't just be a thread with a bunch of lists. icon-hotrod.gif


1950s: Chuck Berry - Johnny B. Goode
1970s: Talking Heads - Psycho Killer
1980s: The Cure - Pictures of You
1980s: They Might Be Giants - Ana Ng
1990s: Presidents of the USA - Lump
2000s: Jimmy Eat World - The Middle
2000s: Flaming Lips - The W.A.N.D. (Parental Advisory: One f-bomb!)

And many others, of course. More REM (What's the Frequency Kenneth?), more Clash (London Calling?), more Pixies (U-Mass? Debaser?). Green Day and U2 are obvious, they've got dozens of perfect songs for this. As cliched as it is to ask for Led Zeppelin, Van Halen, AC/DC and the Beatles, while they're not among my favorites, they'd certainly work well. I love Beck and eels and Devo and Robyn Hitchcock, but I don't think their hits are well-suited for the game. Maybe some more girl-vocal stuff, like Elastica - Connection, Liz Phair - Never Said, more Garbage or some Heart. Some cheesy hair-ballads like Sister Christian and Every Rose Has Its Thorn. Maybe some bass-driven songs from Primus. There's just so much...

I would just like to point out that of the 7 main songs I suggested, three are now officially announced for Rock Band 2: Psycho Killer, Lump, and The Middle. Plus we've gotten more Pixies (ALL of Doolittle), we're getting a Beck song (E-Pro), and at least one Devo song (Uncontrollable Urge, which was my top request for them), plus more to come, AND more girl-vocal stuff.

So, yeah, I just wanted to point out that I'm awesome. Or that Harmonix is. Either way, I'm very happy.

My friend suggested a one hit wonders DLC pack from the 90s, including Flagpole Sittah. I can get behind that.

Also, two songs I picked, Go Your Own Way and Painkiller made it, as well as AC/DC, Megadeth, Beck and Elvis Costello (not the song I picked, but still).

I can't believe how many of the songs that have been suggested ended up in the game.

Aqualung, Beastie Boys, Journey, AC/DC, Beck, The Offspring, and others are all on the disc. A lot of them are the requested songs as well.

Another possible request filled is Cake, who's manager sent out an e-mail saying that they currently have a couple of songs licensed to Rock Band but Harmonix wants to use the Distance but the band would prefer something else.
