Don't have to use that art, but I find the chibi somewhat enduring, actually. I don't normally like chibi that much, but it fits, for some reason.

Chibi art isn't suitable for looking at on the crapper

This blue design+logo suit the original character/universe of Rockman X better imho. :nicework:

That blue recoloring looks cool, although I still prefer the original art because the red gives a sinister background to it.
I'm sure the original artist could add flames in the background while keeping the blue X with blue/yellow logo. ;-)
I understand that the album concept calls for carnage on the coverart. But tbh, in the red one X looked like he had turned Maverick himself. ;P

Actually if you look carefully, you should see that X is still blue in the original - the hue of red is from the flames. I can see what you mean though, but I think it fits nicely despite that although I guess that's a point people can have legitimately differing opinions on. I think perfect cover art is incredibly difficult and this one nails almost everything.

It's a tough call. I like that the red flames are instantly recognizable as flames, as opposed to the blue... mist. I don't like the green tinge on X's helmet on the all-blue ones. pu_freak's latest one brings out X's color scheme (to be really picky, the visor lining his helmet should be a lighter blue), and I do like the gold letter X in the logo. It's a question of whether the blue and red clash too much; the original, red one has simplicity in its favor, although there might still be room to make the X gold. Whichever color scheme wins, I do like the art in general.

(to be really picky, the visor lining his helmet should be a lighter blue)

Done and decreased the hue on the red, so that the contrast between the blue and the red isn't that big anymore. I know you're not going to use it Baha, but still:

It is the final logo - you know, I was a bit iffy at first with the logo, but I like it a lot. I think it works pretty well, gives off an edgy, futuristic feel to it that exudes some grit.

Don't get me wrong Bahamut, I think the destroyed look works perfectly. I actually dig the weathered, scratched look of the Megaman X logo. The color scheme looks great too. It gives the feeling of the overwelming threat of the mavericks. It's the particular font chosen for the text "Maverick Rising", the gradient effect on that same particular block of text, and the gradients on the explosion-esque graphic behind the entire logo I don't like. It feels so "amateur photoshop". Like someone dragged the line tool repeatedly in different directions to make shapes and slapped overlays on the whole thing. I just don't feel it suits the amount of effort the rest of the cover seems to project.

You know, I've been thinking

Why not push the date back for three months to allow MORE SONGS on there?

And when those are done, push it back again

This album should be continuously pushed back and become so bloated that the only people around to see it will be people that weren't alive during its conception

Remember last year for a while when albums would come out on like, the 1st? Or the 15th? Now the schedule is all outta wack and stuff is coming out on like... the 22nd? Haha. But seriously, that was a good flow and it worked to get a good number of albums out at the end of the year, and leave a consistent amount of time between each one. I don't see this dropping "tomorrow" but it'd probably be cool to eventually get back on that 1/15 schedule for albums. Just my 2 cents. I could be totally wrong about how things go down. Seems like it'd be ideal for having 15 days of rest between each one though. There weren't too many mixposts since UH came out... 7? And UH is half way down the front page still. :-o

SUPER EXCITED For this album though. It's about time!

SUPER EXCITED For this album though. It's about time!

We're actually slowing down the release schedule for albums to put less pressure on staff - the past several albums have been stretching some of staff thin so we want to ease it up going forward so everything is still good for them and so we can fit in progress towards the site, their music, and just a general relaxing of the mind in between. For the most part, we want it to be an album a month, although I'm sure there's room for exceptions if needbe. It's also better for the albums since they have prolonged periods of exposure on the front page.

In particular with MR, this is a huge album. Final prep has been going on for a while, partly because there was a file mixup while I was gone and some files got lost or some other random problem or task would come up. We are almost done this time though. I'm so glad that we're able to finally push this out, it has been too long.

Brandon Strader
02-15-2012, 04:42 AM
Haha yeah! Glad it's going good. One per month sounds good. Remember when the front page used to have a "news slider" type thing instead of an album trailer? It's probably been over a year since I've seen that news slider. ;-)

Bahamut
02-15-2012, 04:45 AM
I liked the slider too - I wonder why we went away from it. OCR V6 is in the works anyway, so the site will get an overhaul at some point (hopefully this year?). I'll just say that I love the new site design, it's shaping up really nicely.

Now if only we could get our blogs...

Don't forget to mention that when we do give CDs out, it will usually be at one of our convention appearances, either with a shirt or other merch purchase, or as a prize, limited, of course, to whatever stock is on hand at the time. So if a physical printing does become a reality, be sure to keep an eye on our event calendar. :)

Some are however these are the ones that aren't and have been the ones people have rallied around

1. MML 3 which had a large amount of fan support got canceled. Despite support beating estimates.

2. Megaman a staple in the MVC series has not been introduced or even considered for a DLC. Yes they added Zero but him and not the blue bomber?

3. The MVC disaster that was shows capcom's inability to put a quallity game together that they basically had to re-release the son of a bitch. And i dont mean just megaman. (Ultimate MVC 3)

4. There hasn't been a main line MM game in a while. It's been off consoles since 2004. Its been off handheld since 2009 with no signs of another being in production despite demand.

5. The recent departure of Keiji Inafune from Capcom suggests that Capcom may have 'buried' the blue bomber.

I hope you're right but their recent actions suggest a far darker future =/

There was a file on the site that was supposed to prevent the site from being indexed and Google decided not to play by the rules and index it anyway. A bit annoying, but it's all moot since the album is going to come out soon anyway. OCRE found it much earlier, and I wouldn't be surprised if a few other enterprising people did too. I've accepted it though.

This gives me time to actually edit together a music video for my tune using game footage. :-D I've already downloaded the footage. But that's boring. I need to download some video of chameleons in HD. I hope chameleons are exciting enough to carry a music video.

Delay it until April 1st. That way you can release something that looks like Maverick Rising but is actually 50 covers of Rick Astley's "Never Gonna Give You Up" combined with the Nyan Cat Song.

I would put that on shuffle+repeat for at least the entire month. Adding some Badger Badger would make it through June.

You all should use the extra month to try and get in contact with Johnny Yong Bosch and see if he'll record over the infamous X4 lines; that way all three Zero VA's will have done it, and you can include THAT in the trailer for the album.

You will get super fandom cred.

Now that I see the album is taking more time to go out, I wanted to ask you if is possible to put my remix (Izzy Glow Stage) into it. I have enhanced the quality of the mix, it has afuller sound now. Don't know if I can put a link here but well, you tell me if there's a possibility.

Hoping that this is a minor fix so as not to delay the album any further, but I noticed in the Currently in the Judging Process (http://ocremix.org/forums/showthread.php?t=2819) thread that WillRock's "Countdown to Infinity" mix is under the "TO BE POSTED" list instead of the "TO BE POSTED - Project Mixes" list. Is it going to be posted when the album is released? I would assume that it wouldn't be posted separately unattached to "Maverick Rising" at a later date.

Bahamut
02-22-2012, 02:36 AM
It'll be posted whenever - it's not one of the flood tracks, although it's pretty great. It was originally a part of the GMRB competition that DarkeSword ran, so you can already grab it for free.

I am sorry, I uploaded this a little early because I was expecting the album to drop today, later found out about the Sigma thing... didn't announce the song on facebook or anything until I found out from this post from Baha that he had discovered it on the Youtubes. (subscribed maybe? that's cool :D) Sadly I fear the people only care about my youtube for the skyrim remixes and this won't help in any way gain additional likes for the facebook. :tomatoface: hehe

Except that it'll probably delay the next albums. (bold added)

This is, honestly, my only real reservation with it - the fear it'll cause the list of projects TBP to get backed-up, this project included. Not a huge deal, it just makes me sad that all the projects will likely be that much further away in the future.

On the other hand, I suppose this'll give an opportunity to post more stand-alone remixes. :-P Might help the backlog there.

Anyway. It's OCR's and the project's choice, in the end. And seeing as how I LIKEd OCR on Facebook long ago, have communicated with those I know who enjoy Megaman music as to the nature of the drive, and have a 6-page article over state budget cuts regarding education and the blind due at 8 in the morning, will leave it at that. Hopefully OCR gets to its goal soon and we can all hear the great music you've assembled!

I believe so, although I'm not sure about length. I want to say yes though - the album clocks in at a touch more than 6 hours. The only albums that might compare are Wild ARMS and Summoning of Spirits. In terms of number of tracks, it is the largest by 4 tracks. It also features 49 artists.

You'd think by now someone would have created a program that creates dozens of Facebook accounts, logs in to all of them, and automatically likes the Maverick Rising page while continually refreshing a zoomed-in view of the likes counter on the screen. That's how serious the fan community is.

We're currently sitting at 25560 likes!

It's looking pretty good so far, could we perhaps release it by tomorrow night? Let's get it happening, we already got almost 1300 likes in the past 26 hours, what's another 1440? Let's go!
