  1. Continuing on from here, let's keep talking about games!
  2. This is just a rant. I am so fucking sick of people dismissing Ae's post-Chiastic output ("where are the tunes?!") and recommending their early albums instead as "absolute masterpieces" with "soul" and "melody" and "blah blah blah". It just screams "I am a stupid, impatient, close-minded, casual, basic, stuck-in-the-past, not-capable-of-listening, knowing-nothing-about-music-melody-rhythm-and-structure, accidentally-bumped-into-IDM-when-I-was-young-and-now-I-am-old-and-tired-with-kids-in-need-of-easy-fun, rather-listen-to-boards-of-canada-because-deep-emotions-tunes-nature-and-geocatching-for-rare-eps, I-can't-hum-it-in-a-shower dumbass". I fucking hate those idiots (especially when they talk about melodies when they actually mean timbres...). I absolutely get they don't like the music (and that is perfectly fine, don't get me wrong) but their arguments and points are asking for a punch in their faces. So fucking stupid it actually hurts.
  3. So for the next day and a half, Humble Bundle has a cheap deal on some shitty games as usual, but more importantly this deal includes a copy of Gamemaker, which is a seemingly entry-level game making application. The bundle altogether is only $12 to get the Android Export portion which I'm guessing means you can publish your games on Android for like 10 zillion people to not see. Here's the link: https://www.humblebundle.com/weekly to the bundle. I watched a couple tutorial videos about the absolute basics, doesn't seem too crazy. The code is something I've never delved much into, though I can dabble and not fuck shit up too much (I can use Processing okay for a beginner, and I could usually do really simply HTML shit...) Anyway, is that actually a good deal? And would I be getting in over my head? Like, I'm thinking of it as a means of just trying my hand at getting some simple/weird game ideas down, not like making Call of Duty for Android or anything. And more so just to try my hand at some more advanced code-style project stuff. Obviously Gamemaker's whole appeal is that you don't need to know code, but I'm quite sure I'd have to use some to really get through to an end product 'finished' game. Has anyone used Gamemaker? Or, have any of you made little games yourselves? Advice, thoughts? I mean, yeah, it's only $12, but I'm just curious about any thoughts on that system or if I shouldn't waste my time unless I would really wanna go head first down that path of making games (which I don't).
  4. And the winner of the poll is: BOSS BATTLE THEMES So, as with other WATMM music projects this is a call-out to all producers/composers/musicians on WATMM and beyond interested in contributing. The theme of this album is 'Video Game Boss Battle Themes' which are often characterized as being grandiose, foreboding, intense, etc: an ambient album this will NOT be (though you can do an ambient interpretation if you want)! Mini-Boss themes work as well: pretty much any confrontation with a powerful enemy where the music changes to suit the situation! There is such a tremendous pool of amazing material to cover and/or remix for this project! That being said I am not adverse to original compositions so long as they would sound suitable during a 'Boss Battle' of sorts. Also, feel free to submit as many tracks as you'd like! So, here are the important rules: 1 - Due date for submitted tracks was November 1st, but I want to get more submissions in without people feeling too pressured so it's now JANUARY 15th, 2015! 2 - Submit your completed track(s) to [email protected] using a file sharing service like WeTransfer, Mediafire, etc. 3 - Submit your track(s) in a lossless format such as WAV or FLAC. Do NOT add a huge amount of compression (unless this is the effect you are trying to achieve) or otherwise attempt to master your track as all the tracks will be mastered for the album so as to have a more cohesive sound/volume. In your final mixdown please try to leave at 1-2dB of headroom. 4 - Album will, at the very least, be a free release on Bandcamp. If there is sufficient interest I may look into a physical pressing, but we shall have to see how this goes. In the spirit of WATMM's Xmas comps all submissions will likely make it onto the final album unless I get a ridiculous # of them and then we may have to whittle the # down a tad to keep to a reasonable playtime. In order to avoid a situation in which everyone makes covers of the same track (e.g, a 15 track album of covers of SMB 3's Boom Boom Theme) feel free to post in this topic with regard to the theme you'd like to cover, that way people will not all chose the same ones hopefully. Alright, I am very excited to hear what you all come up with!
  5. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L5IVOs5Pxh8&feature=player_embedded#! Featuring Fox Engine, new Metal Gear Solid game for PS3, Xbox 360 and yes, motherfucking Personal Computers
  6. Anyone else been playing Elite: Dangerous recently? I've got it and have been enjoying it like hell. I've recently been playing around Alliance territory in my ultra-modified Viper Mk III destroying any wanted ships in my path. Although it's amazing, the game still feels a little empty, but I'm sure the developers will flesh it out more soon enough.
  7. Favorable reviews coming in... might have to give in to temptation and get this before it goes down in price (like most games do if you wait a month or so)... Anyone picked it up and plunged in yet?

  10. Does anyone remember this awesome weird Sega game? The 8-bit music was bananas!... Kavinsky should do a tribute EP lol... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yvbmfE8pOwo&feature=share&list=PLF3A16B37D13B53BD
  11. If any of ya have been reading the Video game thread then you might know that i have issued a challenge. i believe that no one on this site has played more Video Games than me. so i would like to have a little contest. that anyone who thinks they own a shit load of games to post pics of all the games they own. Games on Steam count. take a screen shot for those. just take a pic of your games next to your system and submit it. ill be sending in my pics later. as it will take awhile for me to get all of them. LET THE CONTEST BEGIN!
  12. Tettix has a new album out, a concept where it's a "video game you'll never be able to play", creating "screen shots" to accompany each track on the album. I've liked his other works, notably his "Finest Designs" LP. Good stuff! It's free to download, and donations are appreciated. http://www.tettix.net/albums/solace.html
  13. http://www.spin.com/gallery/50-rap-songs-based-on-video-game-samples
  14. still playing Left4dead myself, but just started Star Ocean for Xbox, and World of Goo is always a blast.
  15. https://www.humblebundle.com/ There's 8 days left to donate. It's cool because you can choose where your money goes to, whether it be EFF or all to the dudes that did Amnesia. You however have to pay above the average donation to get Bastion. The average right now is $7.86. I picked this up the other day and have just been absolutely hooked on Bastion. I've played Amnesia before but didn't finish it because I got too scared , Psychonauts is a classic from what I've heard but I know nothing about it, Limbo was cool, and Superbrothers is...interesting. Anyway, thought you lot might be interested in this deal.

  18. http://boxvsbox.tumblr.com/ One of my favourites: This is Doki Doki Panic, which is what the US version of Super Mario Bros. 2 is based on. One of my favourite games of all time, mostly for the bizarre visuals.

  20. Microsoft is offering an XBOX 360 Arcade console (no HDD, 4GB of storage) for 99USD with a 2 year subscription to XBOX Live Gold (14.99/month), and a Kinect motion controller interface, available at Microsoft retail stores (yes, they have them - think Apple store for crappy products). Interesting they are trying to be "first" with the sub-200USD console of this generation (Wii does not count). Let's do the math: XBOX 360 Arcade Console -199.00 (-100.00 savings): 99.00 XBOX Live Gold for 2 years: 14.99/month x 24 = 359.76 XBOX Kinect: 149.00 (-149.00 savings) Total cost (- savings): 309.76 Now, from what I understand, it's almost useless without an HDD, so add 90.00 for the cheapest HDD (120GB): 399.76 When purchased normally: 4GB XBOX 360 Arcade w/Kinect: 299.00 XBOX Live Gold Membership (12 months): 49.99 x 2: 99.98 120GB HDD: 90.00 Total cost: 488.98 Your total savings is 89.22 buying the 2 year commitment versus each item separately. What's interesting is how much more they sell the XBOX Live subscription per month for versus if you just bought two 12-month cards of it.
