    Well, i just finished watching the first two episodes of speilberg and hanks new installment the Pacific. Overall im really looking forward to the DVD release!!!
  3. Hi all, long time no game!! I hope everyone is going well.. Its been too long between games for me. On that topic, I am looking at upgrading my laptop and am looking to spend approx 2500 give or take. Its been so long that I am a bit outdated as to what is out there. What I do know is that i'd like something that can play a decent game on it like total war rome 2!! I have been looking at the new alienware 14 at 2599$ but if anyone else can point me in the direction of something similar in specs but cheaper im all ears. Hopefully once i get onto something a bit better than what i have i might be able to jump on every now and again for a quick game
  4. Upgrading the laptop

    thanks heaps for that mate think i might give this one a go and see how things pan out. Cheers
  5. Upgrading the laptop

    Thanks Nev, yeah current laptop was bought on a budget and is a HP...Have had nothing but trouble ever since i got it home. Nice one about the wine tasting, I must admit with every year getting older my pallet is enjoying the red more and more. Ballarat has finally got a few good wine bars now which are nice to visit on a Friday night after work, makes a change from all the pubs (no bad thing about that also!!)
  6. Upgrading the laptop

    Ha nice one bp, I must admit its very tempting to look at building a system similar to yours MS but alas i wouldn't be able to lug it into night shift . I cant wait for the new total war i have it pre-ordered and ready to go so just need to get something decent if possible that will run it smoothly. I have been well, very busy with work, life etc... I don't get too much spare time anymore and when i do I rarely get the chance to have a game even on this shitty laptop i have at the moment. Hope all is well with family and your enjoying the school holidays!! Will you be coming back to Ballarat again to compete in the teachers games??
  7. Rome II: Total War

    About time!! cant wait for this one- Rome total war being the best total war game in the franchise in my opinion will have to keep a look out for this for sure !!
  8. Well hello all, It has been some time since i last visited RtD forums. I must say i do miss you all and still often have a chuckle at the good ole times!! Whilst i have been absent from competitive gaming (and most other gaming to be honest) I have found some enjoyment in the odd spare time for the Mount and blade:warband game. Recently they have released a new dlc from steam for a MP in the Napolionic era. I loved it as it really brings about the realism of how warfare was fought in the 18th century. Whilst the graphics are not comparable to cod black ops and the like i really think that the realism of this mod really brings it up to the like of ARMA and other combat sims. It is not a game for all but for those who enjoyed world at war realism mods and RO they might find similar enjoyment with this game as well. And hey who doesnt love a blackguard scots yelling at the top of his lungs whilst charging a battalion of the line with 18 inches of steel!!!
  9. Star Wars: The Old Republic

    I'd definitely look into this if it become free to play as I hate monthly subs I would not mind if it there was a once off payment but I couldn't see one ?
  10. Red Orchestra 2

    i must say even im getting interested now, i loved the cod w@w realism mods. I have just downloaded the red orchestra from steam and i must say for an older game its still great fun!!

    Apologies for the very long wait in between postings but have had some issues with my laptop and have only just got i back from HP The Jezabels are a four-piece musical group from Sydney. They formed after meeting at the University of Sydney. Their music is hard to define into one specific genre, and has been described as a blend of indie pop, indie rock, rock, and disco pop.The Jezabels themselves, somewhat jocularly, describe their genre to be "intensindie". Band members- Hayley Mary – vocals Heather Shannon – piano/keyboard Nik Kaloper – drums Samuel Lockwood – rhythm guitar The history: Hayley Mary (vocals) and Heather Shannon (piano/keyboard) first began playing together in Byron Bay before moving to Sydney to attend university, where they met Nik Kaloper (drums) and Sam Lockwood (rhythm guitar), and formed the band. They have so far released a trilogy of EP's: The Man Is Dead (2009), She's So Hard (2009), and Dark Storm (2010), (see Discography). They are currently in the process of writing a full length album, which should be due out sometime in the middle of 2011. They have received a substantial amount of airplay, including on Sydney's FBi Radio and national youth broadcaster Triple J. On the 22nd December 2009, they were the Triple J Unearthed featured artist. They have also received airplay in the United States, where in August 2009, they debuted at #114 on the CMJ top 200 and reached #96 for the single Disco Biscuit Love.[10] Their She's So Hard EP was the #3 most added on US college radio. "Disco Biscuit Love" was featured as the iTunes (Australia) single of the week in the first week of July, 2009. The single "Hurt Me" was featured as the iTunes (Australia) single of the week in the third week of February 2010, and was traxxRADIO's number 1 track of 2009. The Jezabels had two songs featured in the Triple J Hottest 100, 2010. "Easy To Love" came in at number 49, and "Mace Spray" at number 16.

    Jonathan Boulet: Jonathan Boulet ( pronounced: bull-lay) is an Australian folk-pop musician. Boulet wrote, recorded, produced and played almost every instrument in his small garage studio for his debut self-titled album. Jonathan Boulet played at the Splendour in the Grass music festival in July 2010. He has also toured and performed with acts as diverse as Kate Nash, The Middle East, Tame Impala and Mumford and Sons. The weekly feature album on Australian youth radio station Triple J was Boulet's debut album in December 2009. He is also a member of Sydney indie rock band Parades, in which he plays drums and contributes vocals; as well as power violence band Snakeface, in which he plays bass. The phrase “jack of all, master of all” isn’t exactly one that gets bandied about, but is one that may well apply to the most recently inked player in the Modular clubhouse, Jonathan Boulet. A precociously inspired 21-year-old skate rat from Sydney’s northwest, Boulet makes a brand of ceremoniously uplifting, deeply colourful pop that sounds like something for which you’ve been searching but never thought you’d find. Jonathan Boulet is the 20 year old Australian wunderkind whose music is both poignant and intelligent, but with a beauty so sincere it feels like a crime not to embrace. Boulet writes anthemic folk-pop born out of a world of endless campfires and tribal jam sessions.

    Oh Mercy: h Mercy are a band from Melbourne, Victoria that formed in 2006. Alexander Gow and Thomas Savage, the duo at the heart of Oh Mercy, blend evocative and intelligent lyricism with a strong pop sensibility on their debut album Privileged Woes, showcasing the depth of the young songwriters polished pop brilliance. Following on from their successful debut EP ‘In The Nude For Love’, ‘Privileged Woes’ was recorded in the spare room, the size of a single bed, by Myles Wootton (The Panics) - the band literally had to put the mattress against the wall to record. The album was then mixed by Matt Voigt (Cat Power, The Dirty Three, Paul Kelly) and mastered by Steve Fallone at Sterling Sound, New York (TV on The Radio, The Strokes). 2009 saw Oh Mercy hand picked by Ben Folds to play the Sydney Opera House & chosen to tour with Little Birdy, Lisa Mitchell, Kaiser Chiefs and Ben Kweller. Oh Mercy headlined their national ‘Privileged Woes’ album launch tour, selling out shows all over Australia. They then played their last club shows for the year, co-headlining with The Veils before heading out to celebrate summer on the festival circuit including Meredith, Falls, Sunset Sounds, Southbound. Already in 2010, Oh Mercy have played the Big Day Out and Laneway Festivals, travelled to America to play shows in LA, NY & SXSW and have just been announced on the UK’s Great Escape festival in May. Privileged Woes features the current radio singles Seemed Like A Good Idea, Lay Everything On Me, Get You Back and Broken Ears. Rolling Stone have described Oh Mercy as “…the freshest, smartest song-writing partnership since the Finn brothers” Personal Note: i got their latest album a month ago and im still flogging it!! Love it!! Enjoy
