  1. I remember when this was on the WIP board. I went ahead and downloaded it because I already liked it

    Same here. Really enjoyed this one. Even though it is a heavily remixed source, this track manages to take yet another direction on the Brambles tune. It's weird, it's quirky, I like it. Loving all the different elements combined within the track, especially the hint of dubstep. But overall, there's this sort of calming sense to it all, and that's exactly what the Brambles source is all about. Great work!

  2. Alright so basically this entire album is amazing. Definitely my favourite release from OC Remix to date. I'm a sucker for vocals so major props to all the songs which had them involved.

    The standout for me was Trapped in the Minds, I loved the DoD version and have been waiting for the finished result for ages. So impressed with how it turned out as well. Getting Hale on board was defintiely a good move, can't get that chorus out of my head. The vocals remind me of "Carry on my Wayward son" for some reason, and the rapping was tight.

    I also loved Monkeys Disarm Their Kremlings (the instrumental version though, sorry Brandon not a fan of the roaring vocals, but I'm sure they're great for people into that sorta thing :wink:). It was good to have both versions provided so that people can choose the one that suits their preferences. But yeah, just loved the overall energy of the song, such a good match for the what the original was trying to convey.

    Special mention also to Pickin' Out the Fleas, basically cos its Sixto and the drums were crazy awesome.

    Congrats to everyone who contributed to this album, such a great success

  3. I interpreted that as more of an exhibition than part of the tournament.

    The winner would most definitely beat him anyway.

    Haha settle down guys, it's just like this, in every single way. Was just a fun match at the end and he was always going to get the prize anyway. And yes the stupid Metaknight beat my Lucas. The final came down to Samus vs MetaKnight, I was hoping a MK wouldn't win the tourney, but I guess how that's how it is most of the time.

  4. Alright thanks Arek. In that case I'll cap the entry at 32 players. That will make it 30 matches played. If I do 3 stock and 3 minutes it should leave people enough time to beat each other up and it means it can't go for more than an hour and a half which is perfect. $5 a player will raise $160. Awesome.

  5. Alright, so every year at our school we organise a fundraising day and I'm looking to set up a brawl tournament with a prize at the end to see who is the best smash player there, the winner has to go through me at the end though :)

    So anyway, I've never hosted or played in a tournament with Brawl and I'm wondering for some of the tournament players here, what are the best rules to implement? Depending on the number of entrants, should the tourney be 1 on 1 or 4 person battle royale? Is it better to use stock or time (stock can lead to people hiding/running away while others fight, while time does not always determine the best player because of people stealing kills)? Is the tournament mode in the game handy, or can it lead to issues? Items or no items? All stages or just final destination/standard stages?

    Advice is greatly appreciated

  6. Ok so the thread established earlier that software piracy is an incident of copyright infringement. But I have a few questions that I'm genuinely curious about.

    Hypothetically, if a bunch of people living in the surrounding area are using the internet of someone who hasn't put a password on their wireless router, are they stealing internet from this person, or from the internet provider, or both? If the buyer is aware these people are using his internet for free and allows it to happen, is he sharing his internet and does this then become ok?

    Depending on the responses to this, does this affect the discussion of piracy at all, where someone is allowing others to use what they themselves have bought for nothing? And do the opinions of people here regarding downloading material remain the same for burning/copying cds for friends?

    I'm not trying to justify interent piracy at all, I'd just like to see some discussion on these things.

  7. You can hear Mining Meloncholy in it's current unfinished entirety at dod.vgmix.com; it was mine and Jose's entry for december.

    It was awesome by the way, loved it as soon as I heard it, if that's the unfinished one I can't wait to hear the final product. But how did it only get 19th :?, seems like you put heaps of effort into it. Not that it was going to beat Shnab's entry, but still, 19th place is a little harsh.

  8. I feel like an idiot. I just realised now after 7 chapters of playing that Lucas' pk move is named after your favourite thing that you enter in the start of the game.

    And here i was thinking this whole time that Lucas was so awesome cos he can use PK Hammers.:tomatoface:

  9. On a different note, how many people have been able to beat Boss Battles on Intense? The furthest I've gotten is halfway through Tabuu before he's knocked me off screen. I've been playing with Lucas, hopefully I'll be able to beat him one of these days.

    On a side-note I've got holidays coming up after exams so I'll find some time to play online if you want someone new to play. I play as Lucas, but I'll have to get back to my one-on-one style of play which has been screwed up lately because of too many Boss Battle attempts and 100 man melees.

  10. I love how everything seems to blend so well together in this mix. It's been said before, but infectious is the best way to describe it.

    I actually love the tone of the vocals the way they are. They just seem to fit so well with the lyrics that seem to suggest either a song about love or an anthem for Streets of Rage about beating somebody up (hearts collide, showing what my body can do etc.). I love how it works on both levels. Great work from both of you.

  11. Yeah OOT made me jump many times as a young kid, but it was the forest areas that got me the worst.

    Like going back to the Sacred Forest Meadow as an adult and walking right through expecting those Deku Shrubs to still be there and getting mauled by some giant beast with a spear. Man they scared the shit outa me.

    And the wolves and their piercing howl, and not to mention the bgm for the entire Forest Temple.

  12. Go figure.

    Anyone noteworthy competing?

    Well Australia has a rider who legally changed his name to Kamakazi. That's it. No first name, no last name. Just Kamakazi. We hope he doesn't bomb out.

  13. I've also noticed that this site (maybe not the judges, but a lot of the reviewers and remixers) has a bit of a bias against vocal remixes, which is a bad thing when dealing with people who only like songs with words. I'll be the first to admit that I actually prefer the remixes that have words over the ones that don't, but there really aren't that many. If you want to ease people into OCR, you've got to ease them into it with music that would sound good to their ears... and there a lot of people out there that our current remix selection doesn't reach. (Read: more vocal remixes plz)

    Totally agree with you here. Although I'd go further to say that when you do have a vocal mix that will appeal to people outside OCR, it's got to have lyrics that are relevant to the game itself (or irrelevant, it doesn't matter), but not directly expressing that they are from that game. Something with a deeper meaning than the words that are there. Nothing against vocal mixes that don't do this, I'm just saying that a remix like Hale-Bopp's Charade is more likely to appeal to people outside OCR than some others. This is a perfect example of how lyrics can be both relevant to the game remixed, but not so blunt that you know he is singing about playing Mario Kart.

  14. I'll tell you what I'm looking out for, and that's the clash between the Australian men's basketball team, The Boomers, against the Redeem Team this Wednesday.

    I can't believe we beat Lithuania 106-75, that's just phenomenal! Andrew Bogut is an absolute legend. I can't wait for the match. It's gonna be huge. Everyone here will go nuts if we can beat the Americans. We love a good underdog story.

  15. In Sydney, wasn't one of the US relay teams saying they were going to "play the Australians like guitars," and then Thorpe and his team left them in a trail of bubbles?

    Yeah then they all got out of the water and started playing air guitar, that was an awesome memory.

    Oh and while the US men's teams are pretty much dominating now, I gotta mention the Aussie women's 200m freestyle team. That was an awesome win today. I thought the US and China were going to come back but we held in there.

  16. I'm looking forward to how some of these finished pieces will look.

    I just got a question in terms of voting, to keep it fair for all the people who put their time and effort into making an artwork. I know we vote by sending a PM to Atma, but is there going to be some sort of check in place (like explaining why you voted that way) in order to make sure that people are voting for the actual artwork, and not for the love of the game it came from?

    I know that this is the first Fan Art competition that is not about a single game, but about a general topic (boss month), so I'm just wondering that when it comes down to voting, is it going to be more about the fan, and less about the art? Of course nostalgia is always a factor in things like this, but how are you going to assess votes Atma, or are you just going to let it slide?
