SZRC - The Sonic Zone Remix Competition 2012

Recommended Posts

Sonic Colors (in 'merica) has a great soundtrack in general. I love almost every stage music. The main theme though is forgettable IMO, at least in comparison to Sonic Adventure, Sonic Adventure 2, and *shivers* Sonic '06.

What do you mean??? Reach For The Stars remains my favorite main theme in 3D Sonics! I love Crush 40 and all, but I think the song complimented the aesthetics of the game better than any before.

I already have my picks in exactly the order I want them, so I don't care too much what other people do (especially if it involves my higher picks having less conflicts). Come oooooooooooon Aquarium Park!

Ok then! Once wildfire makes her choices, I will flip away!

Wait, so pick priority isn't a factor in selecting? If someone has a song as their #1 and someone else has it as their #3, shouldn't it just go to the #1 and have it fall through to 4? That shouldn't be an issue as long as someone doesn't pick every single song other people took.

Wait... is it Aquarium Park or Aquatic Park? Either way its this one

Yeah that's Aquarium Park. And you could use the sources from all the Acts within (if you get that Zone). They are all variations on the same melody anyway.

Yes pick priority definitely is a factor in selecting. But say Main Finger loses the flip to Ben for Aquarium Park. Main Finger would fall to his second pick, which is Planet Wisp. No imagine someone else had Planet Wisp as there #1, so you're saying then Main Finger would fall to his #3, which is Chemical Plant, which is Rex's #1, so then he would fall to his #4, which is Flying Battery. So he got bumped all the way down to his #4. The way Darke has done it (which I also believe is more fair) is Main Finger would get the chance to coin flip for his #2 and #3 picks in each of those scenarios I described above. That way at least everyone is likely to get their #1 or #2, compared to someone getting their #4 or #5.

Luckily we have few conflicts so I don't think it will come to this. Don't worry!

Man, I was talking with Matt yesterday, and this roster really is incredible. I'm looking forward to my matchups and pushing myself and seeing what happens as we advance through the rounds.

Also talked with Gario a bit, and I'm out for blood this time if we end up against each other again...

I think a few coin tosses make a great way to kick things off with a competitive spirit :D

this shit is going to be so fun

Yes indeed! and I'LL TOSS SOME COINS ONCE WILDFIRE MAKES HER PICKS!!! :razz: I'll make it rain coins up in here.

It really is. All around we have quite the impressive list of mixers & themes represented. Things should really get interesting. I'm particularly interested in seeing how some of the newer Sonic songs get arranged with the older ones. I have a feeling I won't last too long participating & running the compo, but I really don't mind. I'm just so excited to be coordinating this and to see everyone here so eager to participate! So thanks everybody!

Just letting you know in advance that many coins, when flipped ,are ever so slightly more common to land on heads. So if you choose the top person each time, and assign them heads, them the person whose name appears first in alphabetical order on your list will most-likely be heads. Using this theory, you can predict the outcome of every matchup on the board. Maybe it would be slightly better to do 2 out of 3 for the winner of each track. :D

Maybe I should first flip a coin to decide who will be heads or tails for when I flip the actual coin to decide who will get which track, but then how will I decide who would be heads or tails in the flip to decide who will be heads or tails for the real coin flip? It is a never-ending circle. :tomatoface:

There is absolutely no truth in this whatsoever. :|

I swear I saw somebody earlier in the thread pick Wild Canyon. May I never get matched up with whoever that was.

I picked it as all 5 of my picks as a joke.

But really I love that song, haters be damned.

1. Sunset Park (Sonic Triple Trouble, Game Gear)

2. Casino Park (Sonic Heroes)

3. Mirage Road (Sonic Rush)

4. Ice Paradise (Sonic Advance 2)

lol yeah if you want... but then if you do lose the flip, it'll create a conflict with AMT cause he has "Metal Harbor" as #1. This is where it gets tricky. Once I know wildfire's picks, then we'll be set and I can resolve conflicts. I do kinda want to hear what Main Finger thinks too...

HERP A DERP DERP I CAN HAZ REED.

I've actually checked the list this time, so here's my five:

1. Chemical Plant (Sonic 2)

2. Casino Night (Sonic 2 - 2 PLAYER)

3. Metal Harbor (SA2)

4. Mystic Cave (Sonic 2)

5. Hilltop (Sonic 2)

Really excited for this competition. The source I chose while not my favorite sonic song fits my style, so I can't wait to mix it with other completely different songs.

More than anything I'm excited for all the music to come out of this. I wish everyone luck in this competition.

And bring it on :P

Welp, I was thinking that I wouldn't have time to do this, and I probably don't, but fuck time. It ain't shit.

So against my better judgment, as long as there's still an opening in the compo, I'm in.

... is there still an opening in the compo?

Sir Jordanius & TheRexAsaurous: your picks have been updated.

I'd ask if anyone else wants to switch their picks, to please do so by this weekend, because then I'll figure out brackets (not matchups: those won't be until the day-of) so I can make you guys your sweet sigs.

... is there still an opening in the compo?

Nope... I posted the thread Saturday morning and we had 32 people by Sunday night! 8-O If for some reason someone drops out before the compo starts, you could take that spot. If not, then :cry: unfortunately no.
