Rules: 1000-1500 word essay. Diagrams are permissible but do NOT count as 1000 words. They count as 0 words.

Grammar and spelling ARE a factor, though not necessarily the deciding one.

If your essay focuses on a particular game, and the essay wins, you will be allowed to decide which song(s) you'd like to hear from that game, although the NESkimos retain the right to choose another song if it rocks more.

If your essay focuses on a particular level or stage or whatever, and your essay wins, then the music accompanying that level or stage or whatever will be played, although the NESkimos withhold a certain amount of wiggle room (though not as much as if your essay is about an entire game).

If your essay concentrates its literary money shot specifically upon a piece of music from a game (or possibly not even from a game, if you have balls enough to write an essay about a single piece of music) and your essay wins, we will have no choice but to play the specific piece of music you wrote about. In this case, we have no say in the matter, and we are your rock-slaves, and teh w1nn4r is you!

Essays may be of any style and must be in English, and adhere to the conventional rules of English vocabulary and grammar. Colloquialisms and slang are acceptable; 1337sp33k must only be used ironically or in an equally acceptable context.

Other NESkimos may add to these rules; additions to the rules by NESkimos are immediately viewed as canonical law.

Johntendo may respond to this post by pointing out some kind of spelling or grammatical error the presence of which I've failed to notice. In the case of such an occurrence, he is fired from the band.

Have fun!

So writing a bunch of nonsense to make 1000 words doesn't work? :P

I guess nobody can say "I like ______ game's music from level _____ very very very very very..........................................................................very much and want it played."

Damn...there goes my plan. :P

I'll look through my listener requests, and see which one I want to write an essay about. I'll get back to this topic in a little while. :wink:

If the essay is writen in the form binary you get bumped to the top of the pile.

Also this next bit is just to inadvertently piss Johntendo off.....

Secret of Mana.

Hmm…Why do I feel Secret of Mana should be considered for NESkimos coverage? Let’s start with some basic facts. Secret of Mana is one of my favorite games of all time, possibly my favorite. The gameplay is fun and engaging, since it is an RPG in real time, rather than turn-based style. The story is fantastic. A classic tale of good versus evil, but somehow it goes deeper than that. The main antagonist, whose theme is one of my prime candidates for coverage, is a lifeless sorcerer who preys on the stronghearted, stealing their bodies from them to continue his time on Earth. How cool is that shit? The three main characters, a boy, a girl, and a sprite also have very intriguing back stories, the details of which I will not get into here for sake of time and space. The world of Secret of Mana is magical, stretching from a scorching desert, to the deep woods, to the Empire controlled kingdoms and cities, and is inhabited by many fantastic characters and a wide variety of enemies. From fish that shoot missiles, to ducks that crap explosive eggs, to floating heads that breathe poison and spawn ninja warriors, the enemies in this game are hard to forget. These lands are accessed by flying a dragon in a very cool 3d environment, one of the first great overworlds I had seen in game. Even just fucking around and flying around the world and exploring is fun. The bosses are fantastic, and the battles have just enough a degree of difficulty to not become frustratingly hard, but still challenging at the same time. All this is kind of beside the point though.

There are many songs in the game, and all of them would be fantastic as NESkimos covers. My top 2 choices for coverage are the main boss battle theme, as well as the Dark Lich’s theme. I think both are fantastic pieces of video game music, which I, as well as other players of Secret of Mana, no doubt, have fallen in love with. The main boss battle theme plays at every boss battle except the final 2, so it’s hard to play through the game and not remember it. Its fast and furious tempo provides perfect background music for fighting an epic battle, creating an atmosphere of excitement and tension. I believe that if the piece were to be taken by the NESkimos and played with the same ferocity, it would truly be a fantastic piece of rock music.

The second song I proposed is the song I would most want to hear covered by the NESkimos. The Dark Lich is the true form of the game’s main antagonist, Thanatos. When you reach this final encounter with him, he reveals this form, and so begins the battle with the dark lord. The music begins slowly, providing an epic and eerie setup for the beginning of the battle. Once the battle truly begins is when the music truly becomes fantastic. The tempo picks up, and the song becomes an almost industrial rock masterpiece, with fantastic beats, and great places to put drum and guitar solos. I think this could become an epic track along the same lines as Drawbridge: Simon’s Theme or Bionic Commando: Movement II, though not nearly as long as the latter.

Other fantastic choices for coverage are the underground palace themes, the forest background music, the mountains of Mandala, the palaces of the Empire, the Mana Fortress’s background music, the Mana Beast’s battle music, and the music of the haunted ruins. I know that’s a lot to consider, but all are so well done, and perfectly accent the situation in the game in which they are played. The underground palace and forest themes could be easily made into good, reasonably hard rock songs, with great riffs. The Empire’s palace theme is already very grungy, and would sound even better played on guitars, perhaps with extra emphasis on Belmont’s bass. The Mana Fortress and Mana Beast music are fast and up-tempo, much like the main boss battle theme, and would sound great as a medley which also included the Mana Beast’s arrival theme. The Mandala mountains theme is slow and moving, and would sound great as a slowed down track, like the Bloody Bossanova.

If the NESkimos were to consider any of these songs for coverage, it would make me the happiest NESkimite on the planet. Secret of Mana holds a special place in my heart, as I’m sure it holds a special place in the heart of many other SNES and RPG fans around the world. Any song taken from this game would instantly become a great track, so please, give it some serious consideration.

If you need to hear any of the songs before considering them, they can all be found in MIDI and mp3 form at: http://www.planetnintendo.com/secretofm ... track.html

I have the utmost respect for the NESkimos as artists, and faith in them that any track they choose will be phenomenal, regardless of how close it is played to the original, so I truly look forward to their decision, and hope that this “essay” has helped them in making their choices.

As a long-time fan of the NESkimos, I have seen the band rise from obscurity and reach what I presume to be a lofty niche of popularity in the Video Game Cover world. In that time, a grand total of two songs personally requested by me have come to fruition, and that is something for which I feel very honored. Blackheart, as well, should feel equally touched by the good doctor's promise to finally cover Shade Man.

So I think to myself now, what would I like to see? I had a few ideas, as I mentioned in my above post. But things are different now. Has anyone seen the registered user list lately? 499 accounts! Four hundred ninety-fucking-nine accounts (498 if you don't count that bitch that didn't even like the band in the first place)! What I'm trying to say is that the fanbase is, well, considerably larger this time around. And with the NESkimos' undying pledge to cater directly to their audience, it gets harder and harder to keep everybody happy.

So, as a long-time fan with a voice with which to express my opinion, what am I to do? The decision I make now, just as it was before, it not just for me, but for NESkimites everywhere. And I take my responsibility to suggest game covers that would be widely enjoyed quite seriously. After all, this is for the fans, so the very least I could bring to the table is a worthy idea or two.

With that being said, I try to suggest not just the best tracks I remember from the good old days, but more specifically the tracks that I know a lot of us should remember in the first place. This isn't just about getting our faces rocked, it's about that big-ass smile that creeps across all of our faces when we think to ourselves, "hey! I remember this song! And God, it kicks so much ASS!" Or at least that's what the NESkimos mean to me.

I'll never forget when I first heard the NESkimos. It was their cover of "Wily's Base, Part I" from Mega Man II. The second I heard it, I knew right away that I was hooked. These guys were making my childhood dream of rocking out to Nintendo music come true. I think almost cried.

To conclude my "essay", I strongly suggest any of the tracks I mentioned in my above post. Magnet Man from Mega Man III was my choice pick for the Berserker album, and I know that at least a few people agreed with me on it. Boomer Kuwanger also seems to be something that should be covered, though I haven't heard as many people talking about it. Last, but most certainly not least, are Ninja Gaiden and Super Contra. These are two games with the best soundtracks of just about any NES game, and I know that many people out there, the NESkimos inclusive, will agree with me on that. It'd be tough for me to pick any one/two/three track(s) from either to throw in as a definite candidate, but I'm sure that if enough people agree with me, that shouldn't be much of an issue.

Final Fantasy Rock Opera NESsay


Rocking out very hard is what I have been able to do thanks to the NESkimos. I still remember that February night when I saw for the first time the band that would scale my personal music charts. The band that overcame the “local band” stereotype. The band that would bring so much joy and excitement to its huge fan base. With my favorite band having a competition for writers to write about their favorite songs, I immediately thought Final Fantasy.

Final Fantasy was given to me by my uncle when I was about 8 or 9. He found it at some garage sale or something. I quickly put it in and started playing. I had never played a game like this before. It was more than just running and jumping on things. More than just shooting things all to hell. It had an elaborate story (for that time). I played and played, and played and played. I could never really beat it at first. I remember the music though. The opening theme which is used in many other games in the series is permanently scribed within the tomes of my brain. The battle music always grooving when I get into some conflict. Final Fantasy is part of me.

I have seen Tommy, I have seen Greendale, I have heard Jesus Christ Superstar, but one thing I have not heard is a project I was informed about from the mad man himself, Doctor Wily. He told me that they were originally going to do a sort of rock opera using the music of Final Fantasy. When I got that knowledge, my pants exploded. I can’t remember what I said to him, but it was probably a mix of “that would be so fucking awesome”.

I think with four of the members of the band, They could each portray a job class from the game. Then they could have their own little song. Wily has such a great Voice. Mario can sing too. I am sure Simon can, anyone who can kill vampires can sing! Jontendo, I am sure he can sing, he sure can wank the guitar like a fiend, so even if he can’t sing, it’d be bad ass! Just think of the epic music in the Final Fantasy Rock Opera! It’d would be a phenomenal score.

Starting from the city and the castle song as a sort of duel song deal. Then with the outside world and a random battle! Battle music could make great quick little zests of musical flare in-between the singing songs. Imagine the part of Matoya’s Cave when you sing the map code thing backwards! Just like the broom sticks! Then to Elfland, singing with a folksy type beat, then into metal! The Marsh Cave where I died so many times burning a rock image of it’s poisonous treachery!

I realize that this essay is just for one song, so I ask of thee….give us just a taste at least. A taste of what could be the best Rock Opera in the business. Regardless, the NESkimos will rock whatever they choose to play. I thank each and everyone of you for reading and considering bringing back the wonderful idea Wily had. Thank you.

Vegi's NESsay request


I have only been a fan of the NESkimos for about a half a year or so, when one of my friends was looking through the SoundClick website and said "check this song out, it's awesome". Turned out to be Metal Gear part 1, and after a couple minutes it dawned on me...hey, this is video game music, let's see what else they've got. The rest is history (or any other cliché phrase you want to insert here). And even though it's been a half a year since then, they have become one of my favorite bands, and through listening to them I have found other bands that I enjoy listening to. That said, when the opportunity came about to possibly decide on a song they would do for their next album, I just had to take it. I don’t know what will happen, maybe my request will be picked and maybe not. If it is, maybe it will be just another NESkimos song, maybe it will be the one everyone talks about for months to come, who knows. I have been going through plenty of NES and SNES games looking for music that I really enjoyed listening to, as well as stuff that just had that hard rock feel, stuff that I could easily imagine being covered by a rock band and still sound good. After doing this for about a half hour or so, I decided on what I was going to ask for. The game on my mind is Captain Bucky O’Hare, for the NES. The story is, Bucky’s an ass kicking rabbit space captain, with a few animal comrades, as well as a robot with a jetpack. His friends get kidnapped, and you have to go through each world to rescue them. The levels are very well designed, the gameplay and well, the whole game in general, is immersive, and the game can be fun for anybody, from a complete newcomer to video games wishing to start out at the beginning, to the most advanced and talented player on the planet. But the thing I love most about the game is its music, which leads into my point, I would like to see this game’s music done. But not just any specific song from a random level, no. The most interesting (and perhaps only) way to do it is with a medley.

I played through one stage of each world (red, blue, green, and yellow) and thought that all the stuff sounded good. And I noticed that if only one song from a level was done, it would be too short and repetition of the same thing 3 times over and over gets monotonous in most cases. With that, let us get on to the real reason why I would like to see this music NESkimized. From what I have seen, the game as far as I can tell is hugely underrated. I know only of a couple other people that play it within my little “circle” of friends, and I rarely hear people talk about it. This is too bad because the game is great, especially when you get farther on and all the characters are available, the special abilities each one brings to the game are really well done, and cycling through them is easy to do in the midst of gameplay. The music that was made for this game adds to the experience. It’s addicting, it’s fast paced, and it just sounds great. Plus, like I mentioned before, it’s easy to imagine as rock music, which is much more fun to listen to than the beeps and boops and fake sounding drums of the 8 bit era.

When recording a song, particularly video game covers, it’s sometimes hard to decide how the song will be structured. Doing a medley of each level’s music plus some other bits such as the cinematic background music and a short playback of the bit from the stage select screen before the first level is played, all add up to a sort of epic song like Bionic Commando Movement 1, and in general, a great song to listen to countless times. It would be most comparable to this recording for several reasons. One, it would be long, though not as long as the aforementioned music, it would probably hover around 5 and a half to 6 minutes, maybe 7 if it was really stretched out. Second, it would follow the same song layout, because the only way to really fit all the good stuff from the game into one song is to put pretty much all the bits in various places, albeit with a certain order to maintain the theme of how one would hear it if he or she was actually playing the game. Yes, I’m focusing on the Bionic Commando song a lot more than necessary, but that’s because it’s currently my favorite NESkimo song, along with some of the other long titles like Mario, TMNT, etc. you get the point, and I’d like to see more songs like this. This game provides the platform for that perfect addition to the bands library. The last thing I have been thinking about is that, as said before, the game is underrated. I would like to see it get a little more attention then it does now because it truly is a great game and it deserves way more acclaim than it gets. Since games of this era, although they do have a strong fan base, are fairly well outdated to the casual gamer, games like this are rarely talked about anymore. So one of the only ways to get the game noticed is by the music. Simple situation, the band does a song from an old game, they play it at a few gigs. People notice it and ask what game the song is from, then they go get the game. They like the music, so they tell their friends, and then those people check the band out, the process repeats itself. Now, not only is the game being noticed more than it was when it came out, but the band’s fan base is growing. And I think it’s a good assumption that musicians like fans and vice versa.

Those are the reasons why I think Bucky O’Hare is a top candidate for NESkimization. And if the song is in fact done, I think everyone would agree with me. If not then, well, it’s still a kick ass song.

Shite...if only I could encode it into binary.

Nessay Nesquest

Neskimos have covered songs from games that we all love. Super Mario Brothers, The Legend of Zelda, Contra, and Mega Man, just to name a few. But, to my dismay, they’ve only done a handful of SNES songs. Not to mention they have yet to do a Final Fantasy cover. Neskimos, I think it’s time to face the music: we need to hear some Final Fantasy.

Of course I’m not just asking for any Final Fantasy game to be covered, there’s about 15 or 16 games in the series, and to look through all the songs on each game’s soundtrack to find a good one to cover would be absolutely mind numbing. Like I said earlier, Neskimos haven’t done many SNES covers, and seeing as how my favorite game from the Final Fantasy series is on SNES, I’m humbly asking that Neskimos cover Final Fantasy 3/6. In this following essay, I’ll explore this game and explain the songs that I found worthy of being covered.

The first and foremost song from this game --- and in my opinion, the entire series --- is the Chocobo song. To those unfamiliar with the games, there’s a new mix of it in each Final Fantasy, stylized from everything from Beach Party to Techno. This song is pretty much grounds for any kind of style cover you want for it, or you could just play it plain without any added style and it’d still be an awesome song. Who couldn’t love this song? It’s catchy, it’s somewhat easy to play, and it’s got plenty of slack for any style to be added to it. Not to mention that when you’re in the game, you can ride across an entire continent without having to fight any annoying, random, generic monsters! :\m/:

Moving along now, there was another really good song from this game that I have never, ever seen a cover of. It’s got a good beat to it, it sounds almost industrial rock in a way, and I could just imagine what kind of great things the Neskimos could do with this song. I’m talking about the Magitek Factory music. Sometimes known as “The Devil’s Lab”. It’s a place you come to about halfway through the first part of the game. You arrive in this town and somehow sneak into this giant factory where the villains of this game are taking all these cute, cuddly, magical beasts called Espers and killing them so they can use their dead bodies as fuel for these mechanical body armors (called Magitek) that have really spiffy destructive powers. It’s pretty cool shit when you see it in action, and even cooler when you get to drive one around in the game on several different occasions.

Speaking of the villains of the game, who could forget Kefka? He’s the main bad guy of the game, and he is such an evil little bastard. Every fight I got into with him in the game, I was praying he’d just die in that part, because I really did hate him. This is the only bad guy in a game that I have ever hated with a passion. If I ever saw a person from a Final Fantasy convention walking down the street wearing a Kefka costume, I think I’d have to drag them into a dark alley and beat them up, just to prove how much I hate Kefka. But just because I hate him doesn’t mean that Kefka was bad at being a villain. On the contrary, he was one of the best villains in any game I can ever remember playing. He does a great job of pissing off whoever is playing the game, and he just refuses to die until the very end. Not to mention he has some really good theme music (I’m sure you can all see where I’m going with this by now, can’t you?). It’s a relatively short song, but Neskimos could do wonders with it. One of the main instruments in the song is some kind of horn, probably a trumpet or something. But I’m sure that Neskimos could easily substitute that with a Saxophone (can somebody say “shameless plug for Napalm Man”?).

Another great part of the game (with great music, too) is the halfway mark in the game where Kefka causes the Apocalypse and then proceeds to take over the world (or what’s left of it, anyways). The music I’m thinking of here is the town music. I’m pretty sure the name of the song is “The Day After”. It’s a really somber tune, and really sets the mood for the new world you’re facing in the second half of the game. The first town you go to is practically right next to Kefka’s base of operation, so everyone in the town fears for their lives. I’m sure Neskimos could easily make a good song out of this, much in the style of Mega Man 3’s Wily song or something of the like.

On a more upbeat note, I’d like to talk about “Slam Shuffle”. I think it comes from the part of the game where you’re in a deserted town named Zozo that’s full of thieves, ghosts, and lots of annoying random monsters. It’s got a sort of Jazz sound to it, and that’d be interesting to see Neskimos rock out. With all the varying styles of songs we’ve heard Neskimos do on Berserker, I’m sure that they’ll be able to do something worth our while with this piece.

My final piece I’d like to recommend for a cover is the Airship theme. I think the name of it is “Searching for Friends”, but I’ve also heard other names for it, too, so I’m really not sure. In spite of the fact that you have to steal this airship from one of your character’s best friend’s tomb, this is actually one of the most uplifting songs in the second half of the game. I know that several other bands have covered this song already, but I’m confident when I say that Neskimos could kick the crap out of all of their covers if they decided to do this song.

I sincerely hope that the Neskimos will consider covering one (if not all :mrgreen: ) of the aforementioned songs. Final Fantasy is a great series, and Final Fantasy 3/6 is by far the best that I’ve played out of any of them. It’s got a great plot, great characters, and, most importantly, great music.

Music from FF3/6, in the order they were mentioned:
Techno De Chocobo
Magitek Factory – “The Devil’s Lab”
Kefka’s Theme
World of Ruin’s Town Theme – “The Day After”
“Slam Shuffle”
The Airship Theme – “Searching for Friends”

When thinking of what song the NESkimos should record a rendition of, there are many paths one can go down. Should they choose a popular song which they haven't done yet, such as Kraid's lair from Metroid, or the Storm Eagle tune from Mega Man X? Should they choose a song from a modern system that is already clearly metal-oriented, such as Otherworld from Final Fantasy 10 or "The Divine Spirit of Language" from Star Ocean 3? Should they choose an obscure NES game nobody has covered yet, such as Metal Max or Mighty Final Fight?

Perhaps the choice should be made based on the selector's personal favorite soundtrack or song, regardless of what it might sound like. Or perhaps there is a song that is just begging to be rocked out, and NEEDS a rock-out cover, regardless of who does it (Breath of Fire 2 battle themes)?

The answer to all of these is no. Or at least, no based on the reasons given. The NESkimos should not work for the song; the song should work for the NESkimos.

After all, even bad source material can be turned into a great song by a skilled arranger; look at Grant of Metroid Metal. He turned the Mother Brain's room tune from Metroid, not even a tune in its original form (it only uses five notes, all chromatic from F to A) into an absurdly enjoyable metal song.

So, what song would compliment the NESkimos' style the best? What song would push Wily's arranging skills to the limit without being too much to handle?

To detemine that, one must look at the best songs of the NESkimo past. Kirby, Norfair, Simon's Theme, Sigma Level One, and the Bionic Commando medleys. What these songs have in common, from an arranging point of view, is their dynamic nature. They do not simply rock out from beginning to end, nor do they remain tranquil and pretty all throughout. They are multi-dimensional and have variety beyond the simple "A section, B section, C section" concept. Of course, this is related more to arrangement than original song choice. What do the songs have in common in their original form? They are all somewhat mellow and have an emotional quality, rather than simply being enjoyable and catchy. (The specific emotional quality varies--Norfair is spooky and moody, Kirby is peaceful and content, Simon's theme is epic and heroic.) The only exception being Bionic Commando, which is a medley containing songs of both the catchy and deep nature.

Now that what type of song has been selected, the actual song itself must be decided upon. Knowing the guidelines, a number of songs come to mind immediately, some having been mentioned already; Kraid's theme from Metroid, the Mega Man 3 intro, the underground palace theme ("The Holy Intruder") and the Haunted ruins theme ("Ceremony") from Secret of Mana (mentioned by Stank)--and also from that game, the title screen ("Angel's Fear"), the Ice Forest theme ("A Wish"). . .the list goes on.

There are songs beyond the NES and SNES that could be considered. Many of Motoi Sakuraba's town themes, such as "Pure A Stream", "Cuddle", and "Moderate" from Star Ocean 2 have a peaceful, content feel similar to Kirby's Grape Garden. From the Gameboy, there are the overworld themes from Final Fantasy Adventure, a.k.a. Sword of Mana, which have an epic/heroic quality similar to that of Simon's theme.

The PSX and perhaps even SNES-era songs may prove to be too complex and complete to expand upon effectively, however; the more layered a song is, the harder it is the expand upon it effectively (the 8 channels from the SNES leave far less room for variation than the 3 channels of the NES).

So, ultimately, an NES song would be ideal. While any of the above songs would be a welcome choice, there are a few NES songs that can also be considered. Tracks 2 and 6 from the Journey to Silius NSF (the introductory story section and level 4, I believe). Silence of Daylight from Castlevania 2 (track 1), and Demon Seed from Castlevania 3 (track 10). Chaos's temple from Final Fantasy 1 (track 12).

I personally think that the Journey to Silius songs I mentioned would be the best choice, but any of the above songs (including the non-NES ones) would work quite well.

So, in summary, my official vote would have to be for Journey to Silius tracks 2 and 6. Secondary vote for the Castlevania 2 & 3 ones I mentioned.

I've been reading....but the judging won't begin until the contest is over....AKA, when we get ready to record.

We have been fooling around with new stuff...we're almost certainly going to be doing some Mario 3 and Mario World, and probably some TMNT4:TiT. Along with other stuff, of course.

Also, Crashman, we're doing FF, but not a rock opera...we were going to do an FF love song, and a Ninja Gaiden rock opera....maybe that's what you were thinking of?

(BTW, new aribtrary rule: you may submit up to 3 essays but no more)

I love it, BH. But I think the normal-boss theme would be so much more hardcore!

http://www.vgmusic.com/music/console/ni ... 4_boss.mid

(I'd make an mp3 of the original, but I dont have any webspace anywhere)

And this is the one I was originally talking about-- the Starbase theme!

http://www.vgmusic.com/music/console/ni ... arbase.mid

YEAH! YEAH!



But as for my request...I don't know if I have it in me to write a full essay for it. Can I just draw a custom picture of the game or something and post an mp3 somehow? Would THAT count!?
