  1. @prophetik music I'm looking at ordering parts for a new rig very soon! My company has a program which refunds 20% of nearly all purchases that will go into an employee's personal build. However, I recently discovered that this program is ending August 31st. Now that I'm timeboxed, I lack the ability to take my normal approach of reading Every Review of Everything Ever. I'm seeking guidance so I don't do something stupid and preventable. I built my current PC about 5 years ago. i5-2500k, ASUS P8Z77-V, 8GB DDR3, EVGA GTX 550Ti, 3TB HDD from WD in a mid tower (Corsair Carbide 300R). It's go
  2. Relevant: Ben Brigg's most recent album, The Briggs Effect 3 begins with a track dedicated to Project M.
  3. Mod of the decade right here. Super super huge props to the PM dev team.
  4. Amazing work, halc. Another one knocked out of the park.
  5. Got to play a test build yesterday with a PMBR (Project M Back Room) member and it is really shaping up. 2.6b is a blast but some of the new ideas they've got on the table are going to blow your mind. Of course, Roy and Mewtwo feel awesome! This thread hasn't been updated in a while, so here's an example of one of the new things coming to 3.0:
  6. History stuff: I had a bunch of top times in Crash Team Racing, like ten years ago when that was a thing. Got into running Super Metroid a couple years ago but after I reached my personal goal of sub 1:20:00 any% and sub 2 hours 100% I kind of just swore off it. Trying to SS the last level in Dustforce ( ) before I work on speedrunning the game. In terms of notable times I've got a few top 10s but I really want to work up consistency enough for races. I'd love to eventually have top 20 times on every stage, but that's a long way off.
  7. 1. Amaterasu 2. Pikachu 3. Ludwig von Koopa
  8. The most emotional scene in FF7, in my opinion.
  9. Congratulations!!! All the best to the both of you!
  10. Dang, I remember seeing this one almost four years ago? Good stuff from elzfernomusic!
  11. This is decidedly awesome. It's lacking here and there, but you've got a really solid foundation. I'd give you a few arrangement tips but it looks like you're mostly asking just for production advice, and I have little/no experience on that front. What I do notice: Bass is too loud in the first section in contrast with the rest of the mix. When things cut out, it correspondingly sounds MUCH more empty than it would if you were to reduce the levels of your (saw?) bass line, until things pick up ~0:15. The interesting arpeggios at 1:00 could be brought out and bit and the mid/highs boosted. G
  12. Okami was so immensely satisfying--it easily ranks in one of the top 3 games I have ever played ever... I'd highly recommend giving it another shot if possible. Also, having beaten it on both the PS2 and Wii, I can wholeheartedly recommend the PS2 version over the latter. Personally, I didn't have much trouble with the Wii version, but I can say that I did indeed enjoy the PS2 version more as it was certainly less finicky (and the controller didn't break immersion, as all Wiimote-controlled games tend to). The ending to Borderlands deserves a mention as wholly unsatisfying, in my opinion.
