  1. I'm a big fan of metal, and I really liked this cover. Especially after the first minute. Seriously, from 1:05 to the end was some great variation. And while that first minute was still good metal (imo, at the very least), it seemed a bit more uninspired (not sure if that's quite the right word I'm looking for), especially compared to the rest of the cover. It also sounded fairly similar to the GaMetal cover of the same song, so it didn't carry the same freshness as the rest of the song did for me. If you can, see if you can add a bit more flair or personal touch to that first minute. Once again, all that said, I thoroughly enjoyed your cover. Great job!
  2. Honestly, I'm just kind of surprised that this song is nowhere to be found on this site. Not just in its own remix, but in any remix at all. It's a really fun, upbeat song, and is at the very least my favorite classic Mario tune. I realize that the source is a bit short, but I would love to hear a remix of it by someone here.
  3. I was actually quite pleased with the article, since it says he's wanting to train the younger generation. I mean, if he didn't, what would happen to the beloved series he's helped create and influence when he retired? Now we'll have people to step in and take his place when the inevitable comes to pass that will hopefully be able to keep up the level of quality we've come to expect from his legendary series (I've been using "series" as a plural, btw, if anyone thought I was being strangely ambiguous; kinda confusing word, honestly). It can be like the Legend of Zelda. Instead of the "spirit of the Hero", each generation at Nintendo can pass on the "spirit of the Developer" (and we can force them to change their name to Shigeru Miyamoto every time ). lol
  4. This actually reminds me a lot of some of the music in Super Mario Galaxy; namely the BGM when fighting Bowser. Really good stuff man. Hell, it sounds like something you'd hear in an oratorio or something.
  5. Preciate the kind words/criticism m'friend (great points made btw); And yes, I do draw the Bg's for my images. For the ones I don't draw, I do some minor photoshop work to 'em. Also, I'm glad you like my style in general. I know it's not the norm here at OCR - but I'm very grateful.

  6. So yeah, I already left a comment on the youtube page about loving how it sounded like something from Samurai Champloo, and I can definitely see the inspirations by Nujabes. Specifically I think it's very akin to 624, Pt. 1, which is one of my favorite tracks on Katana. I also think the soft male vocals you threw in there was a good way to take the same sort of style as SC and change it up a bit. Since a lot of people who don't listen to the genre seem to not enjoy the repetitiveness as much as me, there's a couple things I can think of that you might be able to toss in to help were you to have trouble subbing it. Sort of like in Tsurugi no Mai, you could add in some sort of sound clips and background noises to make certain parts seem more busy. On the other end of the spectrum, you could have drop-offs - either the lead or the drum track, or both - in certain sections for some variance. Personally, I like it just fine as is, but a few small things like that might vary it up enough for people who don't listen to the genre much without forcing you to fundamentally change the song. I'd love to see more of this kinda of stuff from you in the future, regardless of whether or not it gets subbed here. Also, did you draw the background images for your songs? Cuz those are really great too.
  7. The heavy bass snare bass-bass snare is just like Feel Good, Inc. Not a very fun beat to actually play, but sounds great in songs like this!
  8. So he does all the voices INCLUDING the women ones? I didn't know that. That's insane. I wish I could do that. Oh, the pranks I would pull...
  9. Just wondering, have you tried using deeper or maybe more hollow-sounding drum beats? (Not sure if I'm getting across what I'm trying to say). I just think it might add some extra substance to the song's background.
  10. Oh, the tragedy! Oh, the disappointment! Oh, the heartbreak! Congrats to the winner though. However, if I ever find myself in Sweden for any reason, I suggest you watch your board closely... >_> >_>
  11. I agree with you most whole-heartedly. But yeah, probably won't happen.
  12. That is indeed an interesting site. It's a lot of information on each page, but I appreciate that you let us know about it. Some of the games on those lists definitely don't strike me as "hidden gems" though, under-appreciated yes, but not unknown.
  13. I love Dark Cloud, though I never bothered with Dark Cloud 2, although I did see part of it at a friend's house. It kinda bothered me that the main character's weapon is a wrench and another guy pilots a mech-thing; just seemed a bit too "Industrial Revolution" to me, I guess. The think that really killed it for me though was, assuming I am remembering this correctly, my friend told me they took out the village rebuilding mechanic, which is half of the reason I love Dark Cloud. Two games that may be well-known, but I'm not sure: Pac-Man 2: The New Adventures (SNES) - You can tell Pac-man to go left or right and interact with objects to get his attention, but cannot directly control him and he's always moving. Can be ridiculously difficult but also a lot of fun. Cocky Pac-Man is hilarious. Space Station Silicon Valley (N64) - You play as a robot's memory chip and control various robotic animals to complete various missions. Amazingly fun and can be rather hilarious. For example, the rat attacks by pooping and the King Rat can rally his troops and attack by farting. The King Penguin can jet propel himself upwards and hover via a jetstream that comes out of his butt. And the hyena kills opponents with infectious laughter.
  14. I think some wind instruments, specifically some brass ones, might sound pretty good with what you have so far. Especially with the SMW part. Maybe some harmonica too? Also, after listening to your WIP a bit more, I feel like some bongo type percussion would sound pretty good, if you choose to stay away from march.
