  1. Picked this up on Friday for the Xbox 360- and at a nice price too! The first game was my favourite kart racer; this is just plain one of the best racers I've played. The soundtrack amazing, the actual racing is nice and weighty and a lot tighter than the first one. There's 10x the amount of single player content, and the transforming mechanic is brilliant. With the rules of the road changing every 30 seconds or so, racing strategies need to be adjusted on the fly, and each vehicular state is as great as the other. Which is a relief, as I was pretty nervous about this aspect of the game - I did not want to be hanging out for the next transformation sequence purely because one state was weaker or less polished than another. I cannot recommend it enough. ESPECIALLY if your a Sega fan. My first runs on the NiGHTS and Burning Rangers courses near damned brought me to tears. And it was especially awesome to see DiGi Valentine and TRiPPY's names up there in the credits sequence! DiGi has been teasing me for ages about how much I was gonna love Transformed. Well, kudos my friend, you were right! I don't know if it still feels like a kart racer, it's more like an OutRun 2/Hydro Thunder/Afterburner hybrid on hardcore love drugs. Which is fine by me. Can't wait to hear of everyone else's experiences with Transformed. I'd say it's a Mario Kart killer, but like I said, it feels less of a kart racer now. Either way, it's brilliant.
  2. Hey thanks guys! Nah' it's all the original vocals in this track... don't think I'll add any of my own... Mr Bellamy pretty much had it covered the first time around! Thanks for chiming in guys - glad you're digging it!
  3. https://www.box.com/s/a76231fe0d652b84a7a0 Started working on this one last night. I'm not aiming for this to be anything extravagant, just a kick-ass 80's Club mix with a modern edge. My beats and Matt Bellamy's vocals will be driving this one. Haven't worked on a lot of instrumentation yet - just working on the arrangement around the vocals for now. I'm going for a real Grum kinda sound with this one - his take on EVERYTHING is always 80's, and always, always awesome A bit basic so far, but it's turned out really well so far! Lemme know what you think, and thanks for stopping by!
  4. Geez, thanks guys. Means a lot! Yeah, the timing on the vocals will be fixed when I record the final vox. Usually, my process is that I record a set of dummy vox and just listen to it over and over for a couple of days, then if I find myself singing along to it a little differently, then that's the direction I'll take when recording the final set of vocals. Thanks for the words of encouragement - I'll definitely continue on with it
  5. This is a WIP - and a track I'm using to vent. I've had a tough time with a lot of things lately, and no matter how I try, I just can't seem to express my frustrations. Well, till now. I decided to put a voice to my resentments, and here's what I've come up with - got it done before work yesterday, haha. The melody is a little cheesy, but meh. It's a sketch, it's very basic at the moment, and it sounds a little 80's, but not too much. I really don't care either way, haha. It's what I do, so yah. Still working out phrasing for the vox, so expect a re-record of the vox sometime soon. Is it worth continuing on with? Lemme know! Enjoy! https://www.box.com/s/86528bba7adfb5992c5f LYRICS: I've lost you Or is it that you've lost me, I can't tell. In this whirlpool. Around and around with no sight of the ground - there my limits are found. -Don't apologize, it's not compromise, But it makes me the better man. And so I fight the silent battle that I'm waging with my soul. Warring endlessly to eternity, but you would never know. Because my face, it hides my pain so well. It seems I'm living just another day. I can never find the right words to explain. And so inside is where this complex fool remains.
  6. Robbie's response is here - and sadly, I'll have to bow out of the comp - I have to work an extra couple of days at work this week, and between family engagements, a baby shower, a bridal party meeting on the Saturday, Family meeting on Sunday AND trying to sort out stuff for VROOM, I haven't had any time to even touch my mix since Monday night after work. Nor have I even had time to get back to Diablo III either this week, so that's how much time I haven't had. Sorry to let you guys down. I didn't wanna be another person to drop out, and I'm kicking myself, cause I'm still so excited about this comp. But, priorities, y'know? Sorry again guys and gals, and particularly to you Matt
