    Lufia: Of Gods and Men

    Been a bit out of the musical loop these days, but I wanna get back into the swing of things. There's some cool music here, I'd like to try my hand at the Ancient Cave Battle if I'm able to claim it!

    What game world would you most want to visit?

    I would definitely wanna have my own Animal Crossing village to visit. Definitely one of the most chill game worlds to hang out in. As much as I love large vibrant worlds like the Withcher 3 there's a lot of shady stuff and crazy monsters that I wouldn't wanna deal with.

    Half-Life - Forget About Hostiles

    Aye, it's certainly a nice start but there are some issues. To me, the main thing is that the synth choices seem a bit bland. The lead in particular throughout seems a little lifeless, it could use a bit of modulation, variation, or perhaps it could be layered with something else to add some more interest. As it is its a bit flat, and it also seems to overshadow other instruments whenever it is playing, making the backing textures hard to discern. Some extra attention to the mixing of the lead with the rest of the synths would be beneficial. The track in general also seems a bit lacking in energy. It's not bad for a downtempo style like this, but with some different sound choices I could see this being a convincing chillout piece rather than industrial techno. Definitely keep at it, it's got potential. I would focus on the sound design and mixing some more and go from there.

    wip Zelda's Lullaby meets Studio Ghibli

    Okay. Wow. This is a phenomenal arrangement in its current state (minus the lack of a transition near the end). If this is super rough then I can't imagine what the finished product will be. The change into the fast section was really neat, I love the feel of that section. Though, I would say that the string swell leading into it kind of obscures the very beginning of it, though you also wouldn't want to jeopardize the climactic feel there so I'm not sure if that's a huge issue, or if I'm being too nitpicky. Those harmonies in the woodwinds around 1:50 are beautiful by the way. I'm also very fond of the sweeping piano bits throughout that section. Keep it up, I love the sound you have going on here and I'm eager to hear more.

    wip SMW - Sub Castle BGM (Reggae/Jazz)

    This has an awesome vibe to it. The mixing isn't all bad but it could use some touch-ups. The bass in particular seems a tad too powerful. I realize the bass is pretty important part in this style, but if it was a bit quieter it could help the other parts come through more clearly. The drums could use a bit more presence as well, though they're close where they are. Love the organ throughout. The piano was pretty hard hitting at first which had me worried, but it ducked out of the way a bit once the whole ensemble came in which sounded alright to me. The trombone is a nice touch, though it does sound a bit fakey. It could use a bit more humanization, mostly noticeable in the faster runs it does, though it's not bad as it. The outtro is a pretty drastic change, it could use a more convincing lead-in like others have suggested. But overall this is a very sweet arrangement, just needs some touch-ups throughout in the mixing like you initially suspected. Keep at it!

    Nintendo Wii U

    Miitomo is just silly fun, and I really didn't expect much from it but I learned a bunch of silly little things about friends who I am not so great at keeping in touch with normally, so hey that's kinda cool. I'm still not very far in Xenoblade X myself but I pop on it lots to slowly make progress. Still love it, though I tend to play RPGs at a snails pace now since I'm always multitasking music and other things Also my NNID still isn't on the first page post, so I shall let you all know once again that it is AmphibiousFrog. Add me on your Wii U entertainment console!

    Where are all the movies?

    Yeah I'm pretty intrigued by the Assassin's Creed movie myself. Also I'm definitely going to see Warcraft even though I haven't played it in years, the lore in the Warcraft universe is solid and I've read several of the books.

    Should VGM be better represented on TV & mainstream radio?

    Not too long ago a piece from the Zelda Symphony of the Goddesses was playing on Stephen Colbert's show. That was pretty awesome. It would be cool to actually see composers as guests on various talkshows and the like, perhaps one day we'll start to see more of that happening.
  10. Holy crap as soon as that first chord hit I was hooked. Gosh dang this has an amazingly smooth sound. Love it!

    Your Hidden Gems?

    Shinobi 3 is one of my favourite games of all time. People always talk about the Revenge of Shinobi, which has a pretty rad Yuzo Koshiro soundtrack to be fair. But much less love is given to Shinobi 3. I found it had a much stronger impact on me growing up. The game plays AMAZINGLY WELL and holds up excellent to this day, and the music and gameplay both feel way more intense and satisfying than the Revenge of Shinobi. Plus the animations and general level of detail are awesome. The soundtrack also uses this motif throughout the game that just helps tie everything together so well. Yeah I know the game is on several Genesis collections, and there's the odd remix done for it, but for some reason I don't see a lot of people talking about it despite that. It's just kind of there, yet I think its one of the most well designed action platformers out there even to this day. It deserves so much more love.

    Happy Groundhog Day!!

    One of our groundhogs for the west passed away just before Groundhog Day A sad occasion indeed. But nevertheless, our groundhog team across the country pressed on.

    Apex 2016: I Got Next - History

    Awesome. I'm sure we can work something out if there's no Guilty Gear. I wish P4AU was still relevant. (Is it?) Love that soundtrack. If by some miracle it's there I'd be down with it.

    Apex 2016: I Got Next - History

    Interested in being on this again for sure! Not sure what I'd want to remix since the games aren't 100% confirmed, but if Guilty Gear is confirmed then I'd like to claim that.
  15. Well friggin' jeez all the good ones got claimed overnight! (Well, the rest are good too but speak less to me) Hey throw me down for "Maybe I'm a Lion", that's a rad track, though I'll have to try to do a version that's not like the Black Mages version
