  1. Been playing a shitton of starcraft 2 1v1 and smash melee. Feel free to hit me up for some slippi matches sometime! Also obligatory #FreeMelee
  2. Oh hell yes. If Nintendo does succeed in killing melee (#freemelee), this looks like it could be a good option to switch to.
  3. Alright, so I went ahead and picked up The Witcher 3. .... it was not designed to be played on a TV the size of mine. Text is completely illegible. Unfortunately, this game will have to wait until some day in the future when I have a bigger display. I really wish game designers would make text resizeable.
  4. Oh, completely tangential, but while we're on the subject of Horizon: Zero Dawn.... There is a real company called Faro, which really specializes in robotics and automation, and has a real product called a Focus Scanner, which is a system for scanning things in 3d and reconstructing them digitally -- and as far as I can tell, this is all a complete coincidence. https://www.faro.com/products/construction-bim/faro-focus/
  5. Do I need to play (or read a plot summary or watch a lets play) of 1 and 2 first, or would I be fine diving straight into 3?
  6. Horizon: Forbidden West Zero Dawn is easily in my top 3 games ever
  7. So it loos like 15 years after graduating high school I'm finally about to go to college. *shrug* we'll see how it goes
  8. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Gy3KyM3Xc-jKWz09hDBcmqMxdopYRH_q/view?usp=sharing Still missing leads in a few spots, but the general idea is there.
  9. HAHAHAHA Wow I never would have thought of taking this track in a direction like this! Super creative, and well-executed. I especially love the big beefy rythm guitars
  10. I love Mischief Makers, and I hate Synthwave, so let's see how this goes.... First thing I notice is that it's really quiet. Some mastering/multiband compression/maximization/whatever would help this a lot. Low end feels really empty. The only thing that sort of occupies the low end is the kick, and even that feels a bit thin. I hear a bass synth that feels like it should be filling out the low-end.... might just be my headphones, but it doesn't seem to really do it. Arrangement is repetitive and straightforward. Gonna be honest: this seems like a respectable early f
  11. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1-oNix9r7icrR4UB15Pfcbm13SbUoyQVz/view?usp=sharing Goron City from Zelda OoT/TP. Collaborating with @ffmusic dj on production. In a sense, this is a tribute to the historical contributions of black musicians, and an exploration of the history of the banjo. It uses a fretless gourd banjo, a standard fretted banjo, and a bluesy acoustic guitar with a bronze slide. Still super-rough as far as production. Levels, EQ, FX, etc have not been addressed at all yet
  12. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1KDBJMCXIEATSqdswefry6fCHrzA0TOQZ/view?usp=sharing Spekkio's Theme, done as an old time back porch fiddle/banjo tune. Heavily inspired by "Soldier's Joy," another classic fiddle tune (in fact I even snuck in the Soldier's Joy melody in a few parts). @XPRTNovice on acoustic guitar, @MagiNinjA on fiddle, and me on clawhammer banjo!

  13. I'm so sure I've heard this, but I can't identify it.....
  14. I just obtained a fretless gourd banjo. Holy shit. Music just pours out of this thing. There is now a remix of Goron City in progress, which I will ostensibly claim credit for, but make no mistake: I did not write this arrangement, the banjo wrote it for me.
  15. So I did my first attempt at a speedrun the other day -- behold the 20th fastest Tetris Attack Stage Clear run: (pretty sure I can get top 15 if I keep working at it)
  16. I have nothing of substance to offer, but hope to be building a house sometime in the next year or two which will include a studio (was hoping to be building it now, but..... yeah), so I'll be following this thread.
  17. Staying inside, looking for a remote job, trying to get various side-hustles going. My entire industry is completely shut down (though I was planning on attempting a career change this summer anyway). And my wife is immune-compromised, so we really can't take any chances. Otherwise, lots of Starcraft 2 and Melee. A bit of banjo practice. And that's about it.
  18. Update: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1iQ1XNlhkzlZ3q0_0VKRuOd7BRpqqdwmC
  19. So I thought I'd take a break from arranging game tunes for banjo, and try it the other way round: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1nBOSBtMC38ljqacKUntw_lEZBGFBOzRn
  20. Another quick clawhammer banjo sketch: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1LZKSx9An0-oQHJPzXTDiJTGAOGg8bbGm
