Never heard of 'Far Cry' so far so i just googled it and the pictures on google look... interesting! What is it about?
Oh yeah definitely, that's a good example. Oh, you really think that name is brilliant? The German name for Noivern is even more interesting: UHaFnir
I hope so too. I thought may the Virtual Console release of the Crystal edition may change things as well but it didn't so far. But to be fair, i'm sooo busy due to work, school and other stuff so i have absolutely no time to play games. I barely have time for myself and if i do, i need to do other stuff or just want to relax by lying in my bed and watching TV...
Hm. I think we already talked about this before and i said that this Generation is also my least favorite (or second least, don't have them all in my mind right now
) but that's probably also because i never played it as much as all other Gens. Maybe i should re-visit that one as well one day. I definitely still remember some nice stuff from it.
I'll have to get back to you on that, since I'm not really sure what it's about
I haven't watched him play this one much, partially because he plays it on his computer (whereas he'd play Assassin's Creed
on the TV.)
The timing of the Crystal
Virtual Console release was kind of awkward too, coming so soon after Gold
. If it had been available at the same time as the other two, I definitely would've picked Crystal
, but since I just played through Gold
a few months ago, it's way too soon to dive into Crystal
now (though it's cool that they managed to incorporate the Celebi event into international versions.). Have you gotten hooked on any particular TV shows lately?
Tansike wrote:Yes, or "Tonight's Not The Only Night". But, "Til I'm Done" is still a great pick after revisiting the track again last week. Fingers crossed for a moderate success.
Yeah I know, so undeserved. "Crybaby" at least made the Top40 iirc and showed some longevity, while "Guilty" failed to enter the UK charts completely. That was quite shocking to me as it's a great song…
Yeah, based on how the first two singles performed (especially poor "Guilty"), I've got my expectations set VERY low for "Til I'm Done"
It debuted at No. 95 on the latest UK chart, so that's a step in the right direction, at least...
Oh SZA is someone who has been in my mind for a very long time as well. Would you recommend her album? I'm usually not that much into R&B artists so I wasn't sure so far. But people are talking so good about her and the music she's doing.
These are all great picks, especially "Collide", "Shivers" and "Loose Ends", which are all strong album tracks
If you're usually not into R&B/"Neo Soul", her album probably won't do much for you (and, admittedly, isn't really clicking with me either)
The clear standout for me is "Prom"
- but that track doesn't really represent the sound of the rest of the album at all
The rest is much more...slow/chill (though there's definitely emotion in the tracks.) It does feel like a much more honest, vulnerable, revealing album than the kind of "personal" material we sometimes get from poppier acts (which usually just involves super generic/cliché stuff that applies to basically everyone, like "I feel ugly sometimes..."
Glad you agree!
…and now she just dropped an official music video for it
I guess we saw it coming
Anyways, I've finally heard it, and it's a good pop song, but also kinda cheesy at some points… I put it on my playlist now due to the video release so it should enter my charts next week (not the one which is yet to be revealed for this week)… so let's see how much this may grow on me until then. Her voice sounds a bit different than on her other singles... do you think so too?
The timing of that video release was pretty hilarious, right after our conversation here
"Cheesy" is a pretty fair description (such a bubbly poppy love song seems like a really strange fit for what I thought was an edgy adult movie about kinky sex.) I think Hailee sounds like herself in the verses, but I can hear what you're saying during the chorus. She still sounds good enough to have me hooked, though. <3
I'd love that too. Ah, I actually enjoyed both of these songs a lot. By the time of their releases, I even preferred "OMG" to "Havana"
And "Crying In The Club" is her most successful chart entry by far on my charts. But listening to the album now, it actually makes sense to leave them off. It's a surprisingly cohesive debut album from her.
I must've blocked out my memory of that
Is that still true for "Crying In The Club" now?
Tansike wrote::oops: Sounds not good at all! But I have to agree with you when it comes to videos overall. 2017 was yet another very weak year when it comes to official videos, there were only a few really good ones. "New Rules" definitely belongs to them, "Bad Liar" and "Symphony" were two other highlights.
But I guess you're enjoying "IDGAF" apart from the video, do you?
I'd definitely put the "Boys" video up there too
Eye candy-factor aside, I really loved the diversity of the guys included and the overall sense of playfulness/cheekiness that so perfectly suited the song.
I like it. It's a similar situation to Camila
, actually, where almost the whole album is pretty consistently enjoyable for me. The problem in Dua's case is that a lot of the tracks that seem most single-worthy were already released somewhere/attained at least some chart success before "New Rules" exploded. "Hotter Than Hell" and "Last Dance" were never promoted in the US before, and I would've rather seen them push one of those than "IDGAF."
I think "Never Be The Same" may be my favorite Camila track ever now
Who would have thought a few weeks ago?
Right on! Although there's a few album tracks that give it pretty stiff competition for me, I'm tempted to call it my favorite single of hers, at least! I do like "Havana", but something about NBTS just resonates with me more. The way she sings (and pronounces) the "nicotINE, heroINE, ,morphINE"
part is...different...but in a way that really works for me!

That seems REALLY close...but yeah, it has to manage to actually stay on the chart to rack up those 12 remaining points.

• Hmmm. This is a very sparse, stripped-down new No. 1. I'm getting "I See Fire" flashbacks a bit
In the sense that you're much better at appreciating this kind of more understated, slow-burning track. Basically, it's just too subtle for my "JUST MAKE IT CATCHY!"
• I need a little more time with the new version of "Joanne", since I just got around to adding it yesterday, but it made a stronger first impression than I expected! It's no surprise that Gaga can nail a ballad, but I figured I'd come away from this version just feeling like "It's nice/sweet/touching, but I'm fine sticking with the original"
, and it's actually a closer call than that so far. How do the two versions compare for you?
• Lovin' that Top 20 debut for "The Middle." I've gotten hooked on several of Zedd's singles before ("Spectrum", "Clarity", "Stay The Night", "I Want You To Know", "Stay", etc.), and the fact that the video for this one dropped during The Grammys just drilled it even deeper into my brain! Could I see his chart history here?
• "Say Something" is the most palatable of the three Man Of The Woods
preview tracks...but I'm definitely in no rush to check out the rest of the album.
• "Til I'm Done" seems to be off to a pretty strong start, given that "Guilty" took a while to even debut before climbing to its No. 17 peak...
Yet another chart that looks good at any time of day, Tansike!
