  1. lol, that's alright. I stand by my decisions :P. Even if you don't resub, keep 'em comin'!

  2. Hey, thanks for sticking up for me, bro! :razz: Those other poop-face judges can go to prison!

    Seriously, though, I'm glad you guys liked it overall, but I don't know if I'll end up doing a resub, just because it's been so long since I finished it, and I've got a lot on my plate these days--though I'd like to, obviously. We'll see what the future holds...hopefully some spare time that I will have learned how to manage by then.

  3. Care to expound? To me, if a man, clergy or otherwise, keeps a loaded gun in his house, it's because he wants to protect what--or who--he keeps in it.
  4. I should clarify: When I say "Aw, a rental?" I mean, "Aw, you're not going to buy the game I worked on?" I'm not a huge GTA fan, either, but I can say that I certainly had fun during both my play-throughs before we shipped--and that's after all the testing and tweaking and non-recreational game-playing I did everyday. I'm glad you're gonna rent it, though. I'm proud of what we accomplished. Oh, and Triad Onion: I agree with your stance on the absence of neutral karma, but basically the story is, we did some focus testing, and the results we got back said nobody really cared about the middle ground. :\ Weird. Back on topic, though: Yay, Yahtzee liked it! Strange how that feels like a significant accomplishment--that one dude in Australia liked our game.
  5. Woo! He said it was good! We're in the big time, now! Cole does kinda look like a potato, though. I'll admit it.
  6. 1) Yes, absolutely. 2) That's a tough call...the Amazon and Moon themes are really the most memorable, at least for me, anyway, but they seem like they'd be tough to fit in with what you've got going here. You might try playing around with the Transylvania theme...Or, you could go full-medley, in an "around the world in one song" sense... Hope you find something!
  7. Yeah, I guess taken out of context, it does become somewhat ambiguous...
  8. Agreed. And now that things have calmed down at work*, I can actually get back at it. Hooray! *Incidentally, why not purchase a copy of inFAMOUS, come May 26th?
  9. Cool, thanks guys! I'll be submitting really soon, here. Oh, and I should have mentioned that I also added a phaser to the lead, as per TheKrow's crit (must...please...everyone!) Doesn't affect much in the beginning, which is great, but it turns out that it really adds to the underwater vibe at 2:25, especially in headphones. So, thanks, TheKrow!
  10. Thanks for the feedback, guys. I'm making final (hopefully) adjustments tonight with regard to your suggestions, and it's sounding a lot better. I'm using a better ride at 2:25, and that cleans things up considerably. I also tweaked a few fills here and there to better play with the bassline. It's really shaping up! Thanks! New version! Edit: Sorry, glasfen, I missed your question. The source at 2:25 is the under-water music from Mario 3.
  11. I like the direction you're taking with this. You should play around with the melody a lot more--I like what you've done so far. There's a lot more of the Zelda theme you haven't included, and I want to hear what you can do with it. I didn't like that everything is panned dead center. Once you spread the instruments out, that'll make it that much more interesting. Do you have a way to record your guitar? If you wrote some simple stuff to play at the ends of phrases, that would add a lot of character. Also, expand your drum kit. I like your sequencing, but it's still the same four samples I've been hearing the whole song. Also, you might consider an alternative to the orchestra hit, especially at the end. I don't think that's working at all.
  12. Hylian Lemon: Thanks! Noted! Perhaps it would help if the intro was more dynamic...since it's kind of not at this point. I just noticed all the strings' notes are the same velocity. TheKrow: And thank you, sir. Sorry you don't like the lead--I think it adds a much-needed crispy-crunchiness. To each his own. Out of curiosity, what might make it more palatable? Anyone else? Is no news good news?
  13. Howdy folks! I started this at the end of last year (after being introduced to the music of The Bad Plus). I've only finally gotten around to putting the finishing touches on it, but I want some fresh ears before I submit it. So, what thinkest thou, O masses of fresh ears? http://www.myspace.com/mistermarcellis
