BadAss: Boss Themes: Volume I - History

Recommended Posts

EDIT 2: Tallest, are you still interested at helping me out with the drums? The snare still doesn't sound that great and it's your territory.

Damn Right Its my territory! So, you wan't a sort of marching beat, am I right? I think a floor tom or perhaps Timpani is more suitable for the particular mood of the song than a snare... Hmm... If you wan't me to record a live loop, your going to have to wait a while - I don't have access to recording hardware at home (or even a drumkit for that matter), but my school might let me record it... and if they don't I know a couple of people with 'bedroom recording studios' (and drumkits).

Although, only the school has access to timpani. And I don't even know If I have permission to use them. But I'll see what I can do.

Thanks man. Besides, I have the time. First WIP date isn't even due and the mix is almost done. It's the drums from 1:10 - 2:08 that I want to replace with your drumming.

EDIT: Hmmm... I guess "Rise of the Shadow" isn't going to make it as a name then?

My track has a name. Also, that clip was just a preview as the whole thing is complete arrangement wise; it's a little under 4 minutes long. Finally, my surname contains a y.

Oh I just had an idea! maybe I should call my track something along the lines of 'Mama's Boy', in response to this thread, or do you guys thinks thats kinda lame? :roll:

I don't know what Pi is going to do with the titles of the mix's, but I think that calling your crazy prog mix 'Mamma's Boy' would be pretty funny... not lame at all.

ed]YES. A must. I saw that, and couldn't stop laughing. It would go something like this:

[Musical Style] (of/for) (a/the) Mama's Boy.

In Latin, of course, it'll sound much cooler.

hm, that would make something along the lines of

" Requiem pro pueri matris" although my latin is a bit rusty after three years so I'm not completely sure :roll:

Sounds pretty cool though :lol:

ah geez, I just remembered that Big Bad Baby Bowser from Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island would have made one hell of a remix.

I could totally picture that with dual wailing guitars, rapid slap bass, a cool hammond organ, and high speed drums. Maybe it's a good idea for volume 2 :lol:

I'll definetly second that. That would be an awesome ReMix.

I'll third that, definitely. That was the first song I looked for when I joined OCR, and I've been wanting a mix of it ever since.

I demand that there is a voice clip of Kefka saying "momma's boy" in you sephiroth theme, Tensei :wink:

In an ideal world I would have the exact same latin chorals as the original, except each time they would sing "Sephiroth" it'd be replaced by "Mama's Boy" :lol:

It even has exactly the same amount of syllables

Well, now, lets not get carried away :roll: . Don't forget that no characters in this album will be in the next one. Anything done with Bowser, for example, has to be done now.

I did think of fronting it off with Majora's Mask, which I have recently developed an obsession with. I don't know, it's just very... interesting. Anyone else have that? Great game, very mysterious, very engrossing gameplay. Something about it just gets your stare, pulls you down into a blackness you can't break away from...

...huh? Where'd I just go?

Well I have it (not on emulator mind you, good old N64 is the way to go! :lol: ), and In My Very Humble Opinion Majora's Mask was a BIT inferior compared to Ocarina Of Time. Yes, Majora was extremely cool, with all the transforming and time travel, but there's definitely a reason Ocarina Of Time at one point was elected best 3d game ever. I didn't for example like the fact Majora's mask only contained 4 bosses (5 counting the final one), compared to the 8 (or how much were there?) in OoT.

Anyway, the blackness you were talking about, I get that with all the zelda games, that's a natural reaction of a human being playing a zelda game :lol:

Does anyone here (or anyone you know) have any connections at deviantArt, or a similar site that could set up the album covers and website when the time comes?

I seemed to have missed this for some reason. if your still looking for someone with strong connections with deviantArt artists, I could be your man. I know quite alot of people with great skill who may be willing to help. I'll ask around tommorow

I definately get that with Majora's mask. Sure OoT was better in most ways, but MM carried a serious mood with it. Everything was just so dark and gloomy. It captured in the majority of the game what OoT had at only a few parts, like the shadow temple, dark hyrule, and then the battle with ganon (probably a few more I didn't think of). I mean, it was just a mask, and the last fights were pretty dumb in MM, and yet I absolutely love majora for seemingly no reason. I really think it was the mood that set it apart. And naturally, mood is all set up by the music >:D

Sorry for the rant, but I was surprised to find someone else to describe a similar opinion on the game:)

(Sheesh, first post after the art is put up, and no comment?)

Completely agree, though. Video "games" aren't just so. One like Majora's Mask, it makes you feel. While the story was not as much so as OoT, its the uniqueness that sets it apart. The time travel, the individual stories for each character, and so much more.

It's not just another game. It's art, possibly more than a game with pretty graphics, or great story, but because the story it told was interactive. No true set tracks to follow. But at the same time, there were the bosses. It's the in-depth "everything"-ness that I love.

And the mood, of course :wink:

I came to post my WIP and - Rapidshare's full!!!

Weird.

Anyway, I will scan for another host when I get back from work (gotta go soon) and post the link in the appropriate places.

Which leads me to my first question; should I post the link here, the project's own forum plus OCRWIP forum? Please clarify.

Plus initial art sketches there look mint, but of course need more doing before I can truly comment.

See y'all in about 10 hours.

You can post your WIP here I guess. Good to see that even the people that don't post frequently are working hard, I'm looking forward to hearing your WIP :wink:

Oh and the art looks definitely good, I can totally picture Sephiroth headbanging with hair like that :lol:

Looking forward to seeing more detailed sketches.

It would actually be pretty funny to see Sephiroth wearing tight leather pants, so maybe that's an idea you can incorporate to give him the true Heavy Metal look :wink:

Tight leather pants? I dunno. And the cool thing is, when the art is more done, all of it goes over to the private forums.

But, yeah. He said he's working on Magus next. I said "Waittaminute, cause we might be joining the lavos/magus tracks.". See, Lavos is the real final boss, besides that, that dewcandy hasnt shown once (Although Kanjika himself is barely better :? )
