    Detective Pikachu: The Movie?

    This is pretty much my thoughts exactly. I wasn't sure what to expect, but this is definitely better than whatever I was thinking it might be.

    Good lord, SaGa Frontier. Have fun figuring THAT game out, folks... (It's a fun and less unforgiving game than others in the series, it just doesn't really make any sense or is unfinished)

    I want a Jet Force Gemini OST's orchestral performance to happen

    It sounds like Mr. Bean gave you his answer already. Short of a fan orchestral album, it's probably not going to be feasible to happen. Good orchestra music costs money and Jet Force Gemini likely isn't a property that could justify it the way orchestras performing Mario and Final Fantasy music (the "honey money", as it were) could. Ocremix people probably could pull it off, but same problem: lots of time and effort for not enough non-monetary payoff; and that's before we get into the potential legal redtape that game companies might get into once they find out (and having composers themselves give support isn't enough to cover that). On the other hand, who knows? Maybe there will be a full HD remake of Jet Force Gemini sometime in the future where the soundtrack will get the appropriate update as well. That's a not-too-bad chance of happening in current era.

    Freelance Japanese Composers

    FORGET THE JAPANESE - PICK ME PICK ME PICK ME PICK ME PICK ME Nah, I don't need more music work right now. As for hiring a Japanese freelancer, Hiroki Kikuta seems to be one of the most accessible I'm aware of in terms of being interested in working for indies (hell I almost worked with him once a decade ago), but I couldn't personally vouch for his availability especially as Indivisible ramps up. As for others, you might just have to go to Facebook and ask them directly. Just engaging a direct line of communication with them is easier than you might think, though it would probably help to have someone who speaks Japanese on hand to translate over for you. As for what they charge? We wouldn't really know that, you're going to have to ask them what they charge. Many of them are still tied to major companies and some talent red tape may prevent them from doing work, but just go hit them up on Facebook, start chatting and see what you can get.

    A sad Telltale...

    Yep, that's life.
  6. While I do think the Gamecube does have some sort of internal audio synth chip for such an occasion that someone makes a game that doesn't stream its own music, which at that point in time would've still been possible but much more rare, it's not a VST or soundfont. Therefore an accurate recreation of it does not exist without generating the terrible soundfonts you're referring to. The closest answer you can get to achieving a "Gamecube sound" or whatever is probably going to be just getting a hardware rompler from the early 2000s and recording them with FL Studio. I'd personally recommend my favorite rompler, the Roland XV-5050. It's literally a JV-2080 (which was all the rage for a lot of games for a while and still was used in Gamecube stuff), Roland Sound Canvas (the most ubiquitous game soundsource ever) and updated XV sounds AND even some Fantom sounds all in one box. It's got some limitations and issues, like being difficult to figure out at first and only have 64 voices polyphony (which means you need to carefully plan out which instruments to record), but aside from that, it generates its sounds at .WAV quality and takes Roland SRX cards (some of which are pretty cheap and useful) plus all the rest for under $300.00. It really is one of those items that should be a lot more expensive for the kind of awesomeness it generates, but for some reason is kinda relegated to being in the beginner rungs of affordability. Those who choose it get a rather rare combination of quality and affordability at once. Other than that, Gamecube games used much the same kind of tracks that we all make today with the big, fancy VSTs. Either of those methods is what Gamecube game soundtracks were typically created with.
  7. That would be the extremely obvious action to take. Problem is I haven't heard back from any of the direct messages I've sent him here or on Facebook in 6 months. My gut tells me it's one of those things I'd have to see if they decide to designate me on it based on the interest I'm expressing here for something like that to work, as opposed to me bugging them privately to be put on it. So we'll just need to wait and see for now.
  8. Very good. I don't really know what the process of transferring directorship is, though. I think that designation needs to come down from the top brass, and then after that I have to be given all the relevant files and content that's been generated by whoever has it. I'm up for it (I think), but someone from above has to authorize me for it and green the light.
  9. I've been popping my head in and out of high profile derelict projects like this in recent months offering to take up the relevant administrative mantles in getting the work to a worthwhile state of release. I have the same interest in seeing if I could do the same here.

    The best game of the decade was No Man's Sky. Bottom line, no argument.

    Playstation Classic - Announced

    I just meant the PSP would be more worthy a modified console for PS1 stuff than trying to hack something like that. As the PS Classic is on its own, it's a worthy item to have.

    Playstation Classic - Announced

    It'd probably be easier to mod a PSP to do that. That thing is the best PS1 emulator ever made, you can get one cheap and it's relatively easy to mod. I likely won't have a need for a PS Classic, but my mind could easily change under the right circumcisions.

    Playstation Classic - Announced

    Yep. Took Sony long enough to jump on this bandwagon. Says 20 pre-loaded classics or more, but only 5 are advertised for now: https://blog.us.playstation.com/2018/09/18/introducing-playstation-classic-with-20-pre-loaded-games/

    Zelda OoT has still the infamous chanting

    I've had the Gold cartridge version since it came out (Nintendo Power deal) and I remember the chanting from being stuck in the Fire Cavern for so long. I was more shocked to learn the other versions of this game didn't have that in there. Still am to some degree.
