I'm not sure what I think about an addiction to gaming being considered a legitimate mental disorder. I feel if I speak against it in any way, then I'm contributing to the same mindset that creates the modern conservatives, alt-right and anti-progressives that have risen up in the wake of the 2016 election to become the human cancer they are today - yet I feel like agreeing with it wholeheartedly is not an honest move on my part either.
Going down the same stream, for over a year now, my daily life has become so many days go by without me playing a video game at all. I can't even get 3 hours of gaming in a lot of weeks. I don't have a child to care for yet, it's practically guaranteed I have less of a real world social life than anyone else posting here, by as many objective terms as I can think of, I should have enough time to clear 20 hours of gaming a week, yet I have to struggle for 10% of that and I've been trying to figure out that for a year. I mention it now because I wonder if it has any relation to this gaming addiction thing that's been making its rounds.
i love how you turned the meme into a sortof wistful take on one of the best themes - The clips are funny but i think if you slowed them up a bit it'd fit the mood of the song better.
I do think that it's not subbable because you directly sampled the original music, but i love a lot of the chord changes you mixed the track up with.
Overall a really nice soundscape with some good changes and a lot of attention to detail. Nice work
Good idea. I may have to bring something in, though, when the energy starts coming back. It's like every time I go to mix or master, I end up adding or changing it lol.
For example, @TurboChaser and @Gario mentioned there wasn't enough source. Well, I agree, and I'll be fixing that.
Maybe just a minor gripe, but in the breakdown section you did, I personally found that the supersaw lead you used brought me out of the calm atmosphere that you introduced. How about switching that out for a tamer lead? It would also add variation in the choice of leads, which only helps your case.
I don't have much to say otherwise, other than to second @Gario that the source usage isn't totally obvious, even though I know the source pretty well. It's in a minor key most of the time, and is also used in a segmented manner, so I would have to listen to the source side-by-side to be able to compare sometimes.
