Any word on the band?

I remember them mentioning that they were going to do some recording or something after Nerdapalooza, I think. Just wondering if there's any news on that.

Nerdapalooza is now in October, so now they have plenty more time to get their new stuff ready for then.

If I ever start it up again, I'm going to just have to draw, I think. I got to a brick wall where I couldn't figure out how the hell to draw what I wanted to using sprites.
:cookieshmm:

I think I'm happy with that first series that I made, though.

That was a one off, and that was really good, yeah, haha.

Also, the one about the Hamburglar gettign his ass kicked. That was a good one, too.

I think I just ran out of steam for the long storylines, though. Each "episode" I was making ended up being like an entire graphic novel, so, that kinda got tiresome.

You guys could always come to Gencon in August and bring a few other VG bands to play during the event. 2 years ago Protomen got to play in the Arcade inside the mall after hours at like midnight. You could rock out next to the Jurassic Park arcade game. :\m/:

Did we ever get a studio version of SMB3? I don't remember. I think I'd die happy if I had that.

How about all 3 Castlevanias in ONE SONG. That would be insane.

I like montage songs, like the SMB3 one is amazing. But, some of their best stuff is when they take one song and really explore it. Grape Garden comes to mind.

Also, I've never gotten past the first level in Castlevania 3. I'm terrible at those games, haha.

the problems i find with doing a medley of every track from a game are:

there are rarely climaxes or segues between tracks
there aren't many games where every track is good.
power-ups, dying, pause and game over don't turn up much, despite that being an obvious transitional option.
boss music almost never changes between bosses and almost always sucks
once you hit the 00s, games have soundtracks so big they don't fit on a single cd, at least half of which is reprisals and ambience.

so you're stuck with limited choice. generally you're getting, i dunno, 3 sections for each song with a long melody line in it. So when you stick six 2min songs together, you are getting basically a long melody line being played twice, bookended, then changing to the next section. where are the dynamics? where is the progression? twenty minutes of short loops stuck end to end in the order of the levels? i find it really doesn't do the music justice - you get more out of playing the game and hearing the OST. As a musical reinterpretation of the narrative of the game, it needs to have an organic quality to link it together. I listen to the NESkimos because they put the effort into making the music their own. I think a medley would work best as putting the most emphasis on the most memorable moments of the soundtrack, and alluding to things like dungeon or boss music instead of breaking the flow repeatedly. Just my 2c.

according to the website, no...
Random Encounter is it looks like, so thats good.

The website still has the same problems as last year. no times for the bands, and it takes WAY to long to navigate the game session schedules.

I am not sure I am going to be able to make it yet. I wanna go, but i dont wanna go alone. I also dont want to have to drive from middleburg to jax each day. i will figure something out.

If i do go, I hope to go as SEGA Galactico.
