  1. Nobuo Uematsu's music made the older Final Fantasy games what they were, especially FF6.
  2. Disclaimer: I am not a lawyer, and am not qualified to give legal advice. That being said, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Telephone_recording_laws#United_States, shows that depending on where you live, a notification that you are recording the message may not be enough. I hope this helps and that the situation is resolved quickly.
  3. This is a sonnet, I think. Ode to the Bubble Dragons Bub and Bob brothers seeking glimmering Grumple Gromit their archenemy gone Taking their girlfriends wicked fleeing Warped each boy into bubble dragon Fighting trapping monsters soapy bubbles Popping very dangerous to stumble Snagging necklaces enemy troubles Needing crystal ball zero chance fumble Cave of Monsters now exuding quick funk Skel ghost traces cases chases mazes Homing bright scaled heroes descending punk Zapping bouncing tyrant's many faces Bubble Dragons full victory achieved Spiky curst heroes blue and green restored Apologies if this belongs in the Freeform competition.
  4. Just wanted to say thanks for founding and maintaining the site.The mysql to mysqli and refactoring datalists is beyond my ken, so even if I can't see it, props to the coder!
  5. This looks good . . . so far. I hope Sonic Team gets it right this time. As for calling it Sonic 4, it won't happen. Just look at Mega Man for where that leads. So let's hope Sega follows Nintendo's example and resurrects the franchise. Kind of strange to think two former archenemies would work together, but better an honest [former] enemy than a lying friend. I know I've paraphrased that from somewhere. . .
  6. Rogue robots in the Mega Man X series are called Mavericks. But Maverick was taken, and I remembered reading that the alternate translation that word was irregular.So I became Irregular. Boring, isn't it?
  7. If you haven't already considered him, Philip K. Dick has some novels that could be considered Cyberpunk, specifically "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" which the movie Bladerunner is based on. The book "Bladerunner" is entirely different, but still good. Also, look into Harlan Ellison and "Repent Harlequin, Said the Ticktockman," which is about what happens when schedule rules a society. As for how it relates, the book is actually simply asking "what makes us human?", something that almost all Cyberpunk stories seek to answer, with varying degrees of success.
  8. A track that some might want to forget, though I'm not sure if this qualifies as singing. Hillbilly Rodeo
  9. I like how this piece sounds, but it is a bit strange at times. The lack of Magus's distinctive melody hurts the song. However, it does an admirable job sending you to the place between times that Magus knows so well. You can feel the Black Wind blowing in distance, stripping away all that does not have the will to survive.
  10. Not sure when "mained" became a verb, but sure, I'll usually play Mario because he's well balanced and can do pretty much anything. Specifically, wall jumps and a decent Meteor Smash sell him fairly well, and a projectile fighter learns to fear his cape very quickly.
  11. For the judges: How do you determine if a song is original enough to be posted? Do you look for a certain percentage of new notes vs. the original song? Different chord progressions or style changes?
  12. First of all, this is a great song from an even better game, and Ailsean did it no disservice in his remix. The orchestral opening sets you up for the startling, raw (in emotion) guitar, and the original guitar solo is just awesome. In fact, I like this so much, I'm considering having this played at my [life-changing event].
  13. No, but close. I'm absolutely sure it was a SNES game. There was a tip section on the last boss in the 100th Nintendo Power issue, and that is what I'm drawing from.
  14. Like the subject says, I'm trying to remember the name of a rather obscure SNES game. So, I figured, where else can I find people who like obscure games? Bet you know what I thought. Here is what I remember: Main Character: An Australian animal (I think it was a dingo) imitating Indiana Jones, with the hat and everything. Plot: The Hero must retrieve 7 wishbones and trade them for a wish in order to save his girlfriend/wife/daughter (I honestly don't know). Genre: The game was your standard action/platformer, as far as I can recall. That's it. Thanks for the help.
  15. Mega Man X3 Toxic Seahorse MIDI: http://www.vgmusic.com/music/console/nintendo/snes/index-gr.html The files are about two-thirds down. In my opinion, the third file is the most accurate. EDIT: Removed the dancing Toxic Seahorse. If you want to see it, it is here: http://www.mangamoon.50megs.com/favorite_links.html
  16. Not sure, but the scroll on G4 said that there were rumors of a "cobalt blue" color coming in, so that would explain it. Honestly, I'm surprised Nintendo didn't do a blue color on the Lite in the first place.
  17. New here. I've tried the song, but always fail the intro. In practice, I'm at 61%, which is a possible pass with Star Power. Slightly off-topic: Anyone else notice a similarity to Mega Man music during the third solo? It starts at about 4:07, and ends around 4:41.
