    I'm a poet, game, and computer engineering/physics double major. I like most any genre of game or music, with a few exceptions.

    I need a classic RPG

    The Ultima series would be worth taking a look at. The Wizardry series as well. Both take a LONG time to finish though... Also, the Dragon Quest Monsters series is worth taking a look at, though it's for the GBC/A/DS.
  2. I've had the same problem, but adding in a few wooden links seems to fix this a bit. Edit:Apparently, having too many parts creates a black hole (was kinda curious after Abadoss 'broke' it). http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=925212
  3. My personal favorite solution to Awash... http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=865049 Edit: A walker design for Up the Stairs... http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=865620
  4. Finally got Tube down... http://FantasticContraption.com/?designId=723418
  5. I'll be sure to pass this along to those I know... ...I pray things turn out well...
  6. This is a very grand take on the cemetery theme -- excellent work! The orchestral take on this is quite well done, and it stays just close enough to the source to be recognizable while taking enough liberties to imbue this track with a feel of something you may hear in an orchestra hall.
  7. A very nice orchestral piece! You get a feeling of grandeur from the first half, and the second half is very light and quite, almost like it's waiting for something, or perhaps like something waking up. I quite like it.
  8. Another good mix from djp! This one is a bit goofy, yet in a very good way. Been a while since I played ActRaiser though, so I can't say how close to the source it is, but quite enjoyable!
  9. This one contrasts quite nicely with djp's take on the same track. While the former's vision of this was more chill in nature, this one is something that is much closer to dance music. Also, close enough to the source to be recognizable, but with enough liberty taken to claim it as one's own. Good job McVaffe!
  10. I rather like this for the "chill" feeling if nothing else. I can definitely identify the source material, but there's just enough variation to keep the listener on their toes (or the ear equivalent -- earlobes perhaps?).
  11. Even when one doesn't know this one was created (at least partially) using .exe and .txt files it still sounds pretty good while still staying pretty close to the original source material (yes, I was one of those who owned the game) which was really not too bad (if absurdly repetitive). The static and other random noises really seem to fit well. Overall, nice one Mazedude!
  12. Concerning this latest guy, the remixes, and the corresponding remixers are... housethegrate - Light in the Fortress Chikusho Sound Team - Airbased Vurez - Fortress of the Knight Game Over - Cataclysmic Clash (as mentioned before) I'm not sure about the other remixes -- they don't sound familiar (I've never heard them before) so they may be either off another site or possibly even his own work.
  13. Alright, after listening to every remix, and lurking for almost five years, I might as well start writing some reviews. Well, I must say I rather like this one. The lyrics are absolutely revolting, and yet and can't help but sing along! Very catchy, very light, and yet, when one thinks about the words, absolutely disgusting...and hilarious. The only problem I could see in this mix is that there are a few parts where I couldn't quite understand the lyrics, but overall quite enjoyable.
  14. Some people are just so stupid...
  15. Not entirely sure why I chose a slime, other than generally liking the Dragon Warrior/Quest series. Before that, I had Dr. Light since I probly looked similar to him, except my hair/beard was brown/red instead of white. Also, I do like the Megaman series, and have an interest in robotics (engineering major!). Without the beard, it doesn't seem appropriate (Dr. Cain would be a better fit now).
