  1. Im wondering what the total budget was to actually make the soundtrack for this game?
  2. I dont see what the big honkin hub-bub is about with the physics. I think the animations and motions are fine for, particularly for an early demonstration of a downloadable game... especially since I havent played it... especially since the game LOOKS like it's made by the team that did Sonic Rush... ESPECIALLY since I hear Sonic Team isn't 100% working on the title. Like most Sonic games of late, it looks fine at first... and then you play it... and then you throw up in your hands.
  3. There was a message? I totally forgot about it. Was it "hate your father"? Was it "Find your own path, as long as it's not religion"? Was it "Stop whining all the damn time"? Was it Auron? I honestly got so lost in the sphere grid that I kinda tuned out the silly-ass plot. I wanted to do was summon, overdrive, summon. The game is decent, it certainly doesn't hold up well now, but Id play it again for nostalgic purposes... on mute...
  4. Teh oops. Got carried away with opinions and the like.
  5. Okay, from least to greatest Final Fantasy 8 - It was just boring to me. I didn't take a liking to the characters as much as I wanted to. I think if SE did a remake (which I have a feeling they will) it'd be a far superior game now. Final Fantasy 7 - GASP. That's right. I did not like this one. To me, the game just didn't know what it wanted to be story-wise. I didn't hop on the hype-wagon when it came out and when I did play it, I wasn't particularly impressed with Cloud or many of the plot-twists, (though i will admit, Aeris dying was a bit shocking). Maybe it was the dull color-scheme wit
  6. For me, FFX was a great game. While yes, the acting was for a majority, mediocre (HA-HA-hA-HA-HA) it was still a pretty decent game. While the story wasn't exactly AWESOME (which is weird because how can you NOT like catholic zombies bent on using a giant flying whale to destroy the world while that whale happened to be the protagonist's father ... from the future... from a dream), it still was miles better than the story (or rather, concept) of X-2. Admittedly, I preferred the gameplay in X-2 and would've taken it's battle-system over the original ATTACK, wait-in-line, ATTACK, get-back-line,
  7. Bad times, in case any of you still care, which by this point may be of some serious doubt... Craig McCracken, the art director for Dex's Lab, the creator of the Powerpuff Girls and Foster's... has been let go. Just... ugh. A mixture of rage, sadness... and a little of hilarity. You know a channel doesn't know what it's doing when it gets rid of one of it's head IDEAMEN.
  8. Yeah, turns out CN Real actually did particularly well last week, hitting some double-digit raises. It's sad really. Though the cartoons of yesterday suffered from suckitude on a number of occassions, they were still a regular day-to-day. It's a very cheap blow to artists to be completely honest. But thanks to all who were interested in the thread. Continue to spread the boycott if you are so inclined. http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=191217360303&ref=mf
  9. Im glad to see that there are people still talking about all this. Thank you all for your feedback and time to this thread, even since it's not directly related to OcRemix (though some correlation exists with the upcoming Otakon event). A quick update, though FlapJack seemed to be in danger of cancellation, the creator came unto his DeviantArt page and said his cartoon is just fine and that Cartoon Network may be backing off it's suppossed name change, though it's still highly suspect. Chowder is still up in the air unfortunately and Brave and the Bold may not see renewal, though a panel ex
  10. Hearing word Batman: Brave and the Bold may not get renewed. Its a shame because I actually liked it. Not enough to really go and find it but if it was on, I tuned in. It wasn't the Animated Series, nor was it Justice League... but it had a hell of a leg up on THE BATMAN... why does Mr. Freeze look like Sonic The Hedgehog? Thats the reason for the FB boycott. Though Cartoon Network is slowly getting the message that CN Real isn't generally liked, some decent shows are still in danger, which lessens the need for artists.
  11. "Rumors are a flyin’, fueled fooled by people who’ve lost their jobs mixed with some questionable decisions by the network… but.. NO CARTOON NETWORK isn’t changing its name. Not anytime soon anyways… they were gonna... But I think they’re reality show idea didn’t go as well as they had hoped (they bombed pretty bad), so… they’re kinda backing out of that idea. Yay for cartoons! No, Flapjack isn’t cancelled. They haven’t even started airing our second season yet, which is the best yet. They just had us make up our schedules and budget for third season…" This is from the creator of FlapJack'
  12. too true. I went back and watched the old turtles and found Shredder hiding in a bush, waiting to am...bush, the turtles... it was laughably sad (dont get me started on Dinosaucers). And yes, half the toons out here now are loads of fun to watch. But some breakthrough ideas are being tossed out by edgier, familiar and unoriginal ideas, which is why the majority of us producers and animators are extremely worried/pissed/betrayed. Thats why the boycott exists. Not because there's live-action on Cartoon Network per-se, but because Cartoon Network is phasing out artists' jobs in response to the
  13. There is a name change in the works from what I hear. I want to thank you guys for your input. I know this is purely musically-challenged, but Im glad that the majority realizes how ODD this is for a cartoon channel. Yes, it has ALOT to do with advertising though there is a way to market coke, cell phones our whatever into a cartoon. Heck, I've seen it in Anime of all places. http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=191217360303&ref=mf Please pass along this link if you're so inclined. There alot of people affected by this and it's more than just geeks squealing about their kiddy shows. Op
  14. Well its's good to hear that you all share this discontent for this grave decision on Cartoon Network's part, but it seems they are firm in this choice. Dont forget to join the Facebook Boycott of Cartoon Network Real (which may turn into a full-fledged boycott of the entire network if things dont change). http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=191217360303&ref=mf "You might have seen the press releases of the new shows coming to Cartoon Network. There's a big shift in what this network will be next year, and we don't know if we'll still be a part of it. There will be new Chowders airing
  15. Not really remix related, though it may have something to do with Otakon and the anime that is shown on Cartoon Network, but as a writer/animator and producer, I wanted to gather some thoughts about what the remix community thinks about CN's new realtiy tv endeavors. If you're not a fan of this, please join the CNReal boycott here, ala Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=191217360303&ref=mf I hear they are cancelling Chowder and FlapJack as well, but I also wanted to find out some theories as to what the marketing team at CN could have done better. I personally think more v
  16. I honestly think it's a great idea. I've been waiting for an E3 announcement to really perk my interest over the past couple of years and Im surprised Microsoft did it. It'd be neat to see some cool games pulled off by this neat little toy. Who knows? It may just change the face of gaming. At the very least, it'll be another Virtual Boy. But honestly, you can tell a company was on to something when EVERY OTHER company copies off it (i.e. Nintendo to Microsoft and Sony). I remain optimistic. If nothing else, I either get a good workout or I sit back down and play on the controller... win/win I
  17. Doesn't seem all that big a deal really, it's like an offshoot of the SIAXIS and an upgrade to the Wii. I'm a little more curious to the 360 camera though as that seems like it could actually mean big things for video games if it's handled right... like no red-lights or anything. Still, this little announcement is a step-up from the Sony's DS-Lite-I MEAN, PSP-GO. Man, if all I get is a slider, and 16GB of internal (upgradable) memory and a lack of UMD, the price should be FAR less than $250. Rip-off. This might get some more people into remixing if a music game is done well with this contr
  18. I certainly dug his anime remixes more than his game music. I've recently been trying to listen to his experimental singles but with no luck since it looks like downloads are no longer available on his Pathos. Anyone know why? And does anyone know that song that plays while the user chooses links on the 3D piano on the Pathos? Man, he would've been my age this year. From the looks of his bio, he seemed like such a dynamic person with high marks in potential. I definitely had alot of respect for him, especially for his music since I've always been a sucker for piano. He was one of my favorit
