    Rock Band 2

    Sweet. I'm not really too excited for the song set, but the new instruments look great, and the choice to view the difficulties for each instrument on a song could greatly reduce the amount of failures when I play with my little sister. EDIT: I'm even more psyched now that I know that the old instruments will still work!
  2. One of my best friends swears that the opening to "Fury of the Storm" and "Operation Ground and Pound," both by DragonForce, sound like they came straight out of a Megaman game.
  3. I'm currently playing - well, what do you know? It's all in my signature! Click my sig for a full list.
  4. Oh. I thought you were serious. I would play Team Fortress, but I don't have it, and I'm strapped for gaming cash right now. Sorry. I've seen the Meet the Team videos though. Hilarious.
  5. Gee, thanks for the support. And for the info.
  6. Is there a link to the list of rankings?
  7. Just wondering, what do the titles under neath your "real name" mean? I'm assuming they're just a rank based on the number of posts, but I wanted to be sure. Thanks.
  8. I wasn't really trying to answer your question, I thought it was pretty obvious that you were being sarcastic.
  9. Oh. Well, color me purple. Forget what I said then. My first post still stands, though. Already addressed. Back to the point, regardless of how much we argue over this, the world policy of MONEY MONEY MONEY will make sure that this never happens - or at least won't for a very long time.
  10. That's not my point. The point is that people are already putting stuff up for free - not all of it - and that I think this is a step in the right direction. Just putting stuff up here without asking for money is a good thing. Exactly. I agree 100%.
  11. Oh, I very strongly disagree. One, what I said is an opinion shared by many other people: often, when an artist is signed to a big record label, it becomes less about the music and more about the money. For example take a look at this site. Of course, most of you probably aren't fat dudes in you basements, but you put this kind of stuff out here for free, without asking for money. How many record labels do you see doing that? Two, the posts above me are all arguing about many music things, including sellouts. My post was (or at least is now) completely relevant.
  12. My first video game was Pokemon Yellow. Really, though, my favorite Pokemon game was probably Pokemon Gold, simply because it gave me the chance to kinda "replay" the first gen Pokemon games, which I never beat. I tried picking up Ruby when it came out, but at that point I found the formula had gotten stale, and there wasn't anything big added to it to make it better than Pokemon Gold. Which is why I don't play Pokemon anymore.
  13. This will eventually come back to the old debate on when a musician becomes a sell-out. On one side, we have the people who would rather listen to the "indie" musicians, and who think that when a large record label picks up a musician, that the artist more or less stops playing music for the music, and more for the money. On the other hand, we have the people who believe that being payed for the music is just the natural progression of things, and that there's no problem with being paid copious amounts of cash for your art. Of course, no one can fit into either of these two categories completely, but they more or less lean to one side or the other. It's all opinion, guys. There's no way to really settle this. PS: Does anyone else think this should be moved to Politics, Philosophy, and Religon?
  14. Oh. Well, color me purple. Forget what I said then. My first post still stands, though.
  15. This piece is a good starting point for a more refined mix, but my main problems with it were: --The ending --Volume --Source The ending definately needed more work. When you got to the end of the track, that was it. It just ended. Also, the drums were far too loud, and the piano, which is playing the main melody, was much quieter than the other instruments. That need to be changed. Finally, this sounded very minimalistic. It really consisted of a piano track, drums, and two or three synthesizers. Put a little bit more time into it, add some more detail. This has the makings of a good mix, but at this point, it sounds like it's average quality at best.
  16. When you think about the great classical composers (Beethoven, Mozart, Strauss) how did they make money? Certainly not through selling CDs or records. They made money through live performances, selling the transcriptions(?) of their music to other musicians/orchestras, and not much else. Why should that be any different today?
  17. I wholeheartedly agree with T-Rock on this. On the other hand, there may be a huge amount of people on this site and who frequent the site, but there's still a massive number of people who've never even heard of O C Remix. So, the chances of this happening anytime soon are very small. Spread the word, people. And for all the people who aspire to be musicians and make money off it, T-Rock is right in the aspect that you could still charge money for live shows. Also, a lot of people still prefer having a hard copy of the music on a disk to digital downloads. One of my Gym teachers supposedly had around ten thousand vinyl records, and around 5 CDs. So people will still be able to buy the disks and collector sets if they want.
  18. After the first two minutes of that video, I can readily say that Megaman 2 for the Game Boy has the worst video game music I have ever heard.
  19. I thought it sounded pretty good. I agree with Audix on the drum work, very well done. The only thing I have to say is that the ending felt a little weak. Is this meant to be played as a loop, or just once as a song?
  20. Hello to the great people here on OC Remix, I've been a long time lurker and have been listening to the great music on here for several years. There isn't much to say about me, except I like any kind of music except almost all rap/hip-hop. My favorite games are Final Fantasy Tactics advance, Monster Hunter Freedom 2, Star Ocean 3, and Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones. It's doubtful I'll ever post anything else, but I'm glad to be here all the same. Oh, and my favorite OC Remix album is probably Project Chaos.
