BadAss: Boss Themes: Volume I - History


Recommended Posts

Strange, since he claimed he lost access of that name because it was banned... Anyway, I don't see Pi returning.

I'm up for it Joker, so you got at least mixers (yourself included that is) :P

Alright, I'm in. I just want to see how many of the old guard are still up for this project. So far I've seen pu_freak, & Metal. Other than those 2, I think the tracklist needs some revising. We'll basically start over on that count, with the exeption of the the guys I've mentioned (inlcuding me). I'll check around & see if anyone else is interested. See if I can't call in some favors.

Also, I liked pi's last idea, that we focus on villian & boss themes. Whether they be mini bosses, main bosses, or character themes for the bosses. Keeping the darker aspect to it, but allowing both aggressive as well as more mellow mixes within it.

What do you guys think?

Is it possible to include lesser known bosses and boss themes? I want to use this opportunity to bring in music from games that would never get into albums otherwise. I haven't met a boss theme I haven't at least somewhat enjoyed, so if I can get my mixing skills up to par in time I am so in.

Examples of boss themes I might want to remix include:

Crash Bandicoot Warped: N Gin

alright, I gotta do some planning, so, first things first, everyone who started on the project before hand & still wants to be included send me a pm with a current build of your track. We'll go from there, & I'll start a new thread at some point in the near future.

Gah! Something has caught my attention about the track list.

"Gary Oak" is the name of a character from the Pokémon anime. The video game character's name should be "Blue". Since this is supposed to be a video game remix project, it makes sense to use the proper name from the proper media.

Most fans of the game do not like to mix or mingle the game and the show together. I jst thought you should know in case you get a bunch of "GARY OAK IS NOT IN TEH ANIMEZ!" messages after this gets released.

Yes, his official name in the game is Blue/Green (Oak?), I am one of the people you're talking about :D

But I admit that I didn't thought about it before reading this post....

It entirely depends on whether you're basing it on Red/Blue/Green or Yellow. I know that in essence they are all the same but iirc, in Yellow Gary was the default name for him, as was Ash for the player, as it mirrored the anime in certain respects.

But Blue had more continuity in the series as a game, so The Damned does have a point, still.

Eh... you mean that he's not in the game. And go worry about your own project Damned :P

So, i'm still debating this project. There doesn't seem to be enough interest in it as far as musicians are concerned. That's why I'm on the fence about continuing.

Having said that, the tracklist on the front page is basically out of date & no longer the tracklist. And "Crescendo to Chaos" is the working title for a project that is still being worked on at foundation level.

If I can muster enough support with a good number of artists to start out, I'll start the new thread asap. Until then, it's still up in the air.

I think the problem is that there are so many projects going right now. It's a massive drain on the talent pool this site has, and people are wearing out.

If it weren't for the inherent nature of projects (random schedules, on-and-off moments of inspiration, trouble getting organized, etc., etc...), I would love for there to be some sort of planned order and timing for each project. Sort of like "OK, this project is next. It has one year to complete all aspects. No other project will be started until it is done". But that's not only unrealistic, but horribly unfair.

So many projects... I wonder if any of the current ones will get any time in the spotlight for more than a week now. They're going to overlap each other at this rate. Hopefully they will all work out!

I think part of the problem is also that many of the projects want OCR quality. Now, I'm not talking about letting something that sucks to high hell go through, but having the project bar in the same position as the OCR bar kind of cuts out potential remixers who might have been interested, yet don't meet what's expected for this place. And thus, you're limited in who would and wouldn't be able to take part.

If there's not a lot of tracks, I say it should be OCR quality. If there's a lot of tracks, I think there should be room to make for lesser-known artists, one thing the Skies of Arcadia project could do.

They're going to overlap each other at this rate. Hopefully they will all work out!

I say have an album dual-release one of these days

This is a project I REALLY want to go through. I mean, OCR is very melodic oriented. Not that that's bad, I love melodic stuff (Chrono Cross soundtrack FTW), I'm just saying that this project will bring out more metal, upbeat stuff, which I want to start seeing more of, you know? I've heard quite a few metal/upbeat mixes here but there's way more melodic mixes. I think there should be more of a balance.

Of course maybe I just haven't heard enough.
