#1420890 DoD Free Month Results, Golf vs Fishing Month Next

Posted by powellman on 01 May 2020 - 03:44 AM

Seriously solid month, Ninja Gaiden, Fire Emblem, and Blazing Chrome were my top 3 but I enjoyed everything!

 

Also had been dieing to cover something from Contra III for yeeeears now but its just been way out of my comfort zone. Finally got a decent bass setup this year and my bass playing has gottin a lot better so decided to give it a go! My fingers were in absolute BITS after recording this.....so many takes, so little skin left...

#1411983 Help me with my weird New Year's resolution

Posted by powellman on 04 January 2020 - 07:31 PM

I'm not a massive movie buff so I feel your pain, a lot of references to over my head too but I did obsess over some movies as a kid.

Big trouble in little China
Escape from new York/la
The thing
Rambo/Rocky movies
Halloween movies
Mortal Kombat
Arachnophobia
Titanic
Alien/'s/3
The shining
The crow
The Stand
The last action hero
Alive
Robin Hood:men in tights


Some of these I just happened to have on VHS not exactly the best movies but definitly worth a watch

#1407519 DoD Tornado of Solos Results, Trick or Treat Month Next

Posted by powellman on 07 October 2019 - 01:28 AM

Woo 2nd place! Personally if I had to choose a winner it would have been Cory's track for pure creativity, any of the production gripes were instantly nulified by the fact that it was clearly aiming in that direction but then again I also like a lot of punk rock so I've gotten used to that kind of sound over the years.

 

Also yes that was obviously an Otamatone on my track, god damn those things are a pain in the arse to play so I just fucking wailed on it until something semi interesting came out haha. All in all my track was incredibly rushed. I basically had the best part of a day to record everything, solo definitely took the longest to learn but I was able to practice that in work. I actually fixed up my 6 string Ibanez with a whammy bar so I may do a little video playing the solo with the CORRECT amount of VIBRATO this time!!! I also agree about the drum production, it was basically a hastily modified version of my FUCK YEAH METAL drum mix that's usually smashed and parallel compressed to fuck so it didn't really sit in the mix the way I envisioned. I was kind of going for a Paul Gilbert mix hence the over saturated chorusy guitar solo.

 

 

All in all awesome month, really enjoyed all the tracks! Next month should be uuhhh interesting!!

Posted by powellman on 17 September 2019 - 01:01 AM

Dragon Quests 1/2/3 are getting a Switch port collection and...man this looks ugly.

 

 

Hi res sprites over 16 bit backgrounds is NOT a good idea.

 

ugh NO I really can't stand lack of continuity when it comes to graphics and especially when its like this. We all know 16 bit character models can be a bit lacking in detail but I'd rather that than this.
