  1. Hi, I'm G Lux, a global moderator at Infinity Mugen Team forum. We're in the process of working out our flagship project "Super Marvel vs Capcom: Eternity of Heroes (S:MvC)" and are now finally ready to reveal what we're up too next.

    If you ever happened to get to play S:MvC, thanks first of all, but you'll have noticed there's a fairly decent amount of megaman characters in the roster. Well, we're taking it the the next level. Here's a sneek peak at the new project in the works.

    But wait, why post this in a musically directed forum? That's where the proposition parts comes into play. We like Megaman right? Well I especially love Megaman and I wanted to try to get something special for this project.

    I would like to ask the talented community here at OCR if they would be collectively interested in providing the soundtrack for this project. I think that what you guys did for Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix was outstanding would be totally honored if you would bring that same level of awesome to this, but I didn't want to start a project thread if there wasn't going to be any backing behind it.

    We're currently working out to confirm the roster and still very early in the development stages so there's no need to rush a reply, I just wanted to get the word out to all of you to see if it would be something you would be interested in.

    Ok, this is totally NOT what the thread title made me thought it was going to be... I thought it was going to be an artist's rendering of Mario's planned proposal to Princess Peach. :|

    Anyway, I can't speak for the rest of the community - or even for the remixers, since I fail at life and can't remix - but this sounds awesome.

    in that case, I don't know what to say

    Mine also appears like this.

    Actually, if anything, I think we should get some more smilies. The ones we have are great, but another dozen or so would also rock. And I'm pretty sure smilies take up barely any memory. I could be wrong, though - it's been years since I last worked as an admin for a forum. :tomatoface:

  3. I like the idea, and it sounds like it would work with a trance soundtrack. I'm just recommending keeping in mind what a niche genre trance is and how few people of the general population actually listen to / like it.

    This is true. Although, that's one of the wonderful things about a movie/video game soundtrack - if it's done properly, it can expose the general population to a genre - even something like a niche genre - in such a way that they won't even notice until later that they're listening to it and loving it. But it's just gotta make sense with the movie/video game.

    Personally, I like some trance, but I can't count the number of times I'd be listening to it and one of my friends would say something like "Turn that sh%t off! It's giving me a headache and it all sounds the same."

    Then they go listen to hip hop...

    Don't get me started. :|

  4. That actually sounds pretty fun, though it would probably be a controller-based rhythm-fest. (And what's wrong with that? :?)

    Well, that's the major problem that I've had with the game idea in my head - I haven't quite decided how I'd want the control system executed. :| Right now, I'm thinking something like a Real-Time version of the control system used in Vagrant Story, that's rhythm and movement based. I'd even considered throwing in some sort of DDR platform to help control the movements of the character in battle - allowing you to dodge, jump, duck, spin, etc. with your feet.

  5. depends on the game. Without either being a puzzle game or something so abstract that trance just "fits" - trance wouldn't really work with many games as proper BGM. And designing a game around trance music for the sake of the music itself may not be the best idea.

    Actually, I've had a video game idea for quite some time that might work - basically, a game revolving around the concept of a Blade Dancer. Someone lithe and supple who fights with a blade as if they were dancing with it, slicing and dicing apart any opponent with a multitude of quick strikes - contrary to the popular overmuscled fighter who kills with a handful of powerful blows. It builds on the concept that all dance stems from five main sources: mating rituals, religious rituals, agricultural rituals, theater/performing arts, and martial arts.

    Now, true, it wouldn't be a fully trance-themed ST, because at least a few areas ingame would be old-fashioned and would therefore need more old-fashioned music. But I could see the majority of it easily being done in trance.

    EDIT: That's just one example of a game I could think of that could work with mostly trance. But I'm sure there are others you can think of.

  6. Geez, that's awful. I thought the setup was vital to building sympathy/empathy with the characters, as well as helping you feel invested in/engulfed by the movie in general.

    If those people walked out on a movie like District 9, I think I'd hate to see the kinds of movies they might consider worth staying for.

    Probably the crap movies that make up 75% of what's showing in theaters these days.

    Anyway, my two cents: Amazing movie, totally worth the $7.50 I paid to get in.

  7. I normally hate outright any VG music/remix that has vocals in it. This piece is definitely an exception. It does an excellent job of creating a moody, ominous tone that warns of what will follow; and the lyrics aren't cheesy or annoying (normally the two qualms I have with most lyrical VG music), and just as importantly, understandable. Plus, the vocals and instrumentals do a perfect job of complementing each other, rather than trying to stand apart.

    Good work. You two should collab more often. :-P

  8. One thing's for sure - no way in hell am I letting any of the little kids I know get ahold of a copy of this game. :? Could cause a great number of nightmares if the wrong kid sees it.

  9. there are a lot of newer girls to the site, too. don't forget katethegreat and the chick who sung on that ff4 track, the one that just got posted a few weeks ago.

    Who? Loka LaFevre?

    EDIT: Also, while I think KatetheGreat would be an amazing choice for this, last I checked she's kinda busy working on her own album, so she might not be available to help. You could always check with her and see, though.

  10. I'd actually have to disagree with you, and say that Celes' opera house melody - to me, at least - would serve you better as a climax here, especially if you do it in the same style as the intro. But that's completely my opinion, so take it with a grain of salt.

    I've got nothing for you on the transitions though. :-(

    Aside from those two issues, though, it's pretty good - loving it!
