I wanted to leave it for someone else to post because the solstice music is always a good time. He also did the music for Plok and that really bad Silver Surfer game with the kickass soundtrack. Same dude also made those fmv games Contradiction and At Dead of Night.

My favorite "game composer goes ham on something completely incongruous" is Unused Song 2 from The Flintstones by Dean Evans

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WRF_7xsu10c

quote:

This track was never actually written for anything in particular, until I was asked if I had any unused tracks I'd written that could be added to 'The Flintstones'. There were four tracks that I contributed, those being - Password Screen, Cinema, Staff Roll and this.

The reason the tracks ended up in 'The Flintstones' was the fact that there was spare ROM space on the cartridge and the programmers wanted to fill this up with music for their jukebox. The other tracks were used in the game, but of course this wasn't at all suitable, it was however left on the game cartridge.

Somewhat disappointing story

Finally got a chance to listen to this. Holy hell he did that on the NES? I also laughed at the one comment on the video of "just needed to make a title theme not the 8bit soundtrack to lord of the rings."

The dump truck levels were one of the final vehicles I needed to 100% the game.

Spent days on one lovely level you have to swipe house after house perfectly with what is essentially a 3 wheeled trolley for a vehicle.
I hated it.

Yes yes emulation, but it still bums me out the Rare Replay bundle never hit a Nintendo console with all the positive relations Microsoft X Nintendo seemed to have going for a while now.

I've always thought it sounds like Boards of Canada trying to make an upbeat chiptune soundtrack for Earthbound. Featuring voice clips from the challenger shuttle mission, numbers stations and a dog barking? :shrug:

I'm not hugely familiar with monkey ball but I think it's some sort of remix of the first few games rather than a "new" thing?

So I've come to the conclusion I won't be able to 100% Mercs 2 cause some of the side missions are bullshit hard. Therefore my goals are now the following:

- Complete all story missions
- Unlock all outposts
- Complete all side missions at level 1
- Complete all assassinations and building destructions
- Find all the collectibles

This feels achieveable. I haven't gamed in a couple of days though cause I've got wisdom tooth pain and it's been too bad for me to think about games :(

Some of Mercs 2 feels like it's not balanced for single player and assumes you're playing coop

No but I do remember reign the conqueror, which I have decided to watch because I want to see how it holds up since I didn't give it a fair shake when I saw it when it was first on adult swim.






The art is still really cool and I actually appreciate it now unlike when I first saw it. I just finished episode 5 and I'm having fun with it. Makes me wish there was a Warriors game tie-in because I feel like it'd fit pretty well.

"Diving" is such an absurdly-fantastic tune; I like to imagine that in some alternate universe this achieved Donkey Kong Country levels of notoriety and we'd all be listening to remixes of Waterworld tracks on Smash Bros.

Do those missions seem like they were tuned to require co-op play? Or would they be bullshit regardless?

Just put custom firmware and a hefty harddrive in my PS3. Are there any good games for it that:
1) don't look like a brown, low poly smear
or 2) is not the worst version of a multi platform game?
