  1. The girl is sweet.But she has been through to much

  2. But he already is. He's already inspired Tails to be a hero and stand up for himself, inspired Amy (albeit indirectly) to be brave and to fight, inspired Blaze to be less insecure and more open for friends and receiving help, amongst others. We already get these moments as it is. As far as the general opinion that believes you think Sonic is perfect... Well, you cover up Sonic's 'mistakes', such as being captured by the GUN and having to be rescued by Amy (which is honestly nice, depicting Sonic isn't perfect and needs help at times, while depicting Amy to be a strong individual who can stand up for her own and help Sonic when he's in need), for instance. It's natural to require help; heck, Sonic even willingly got assisted by Silver in Kingdom Valley, in Sonic 06. You don't have to make everyone into sitting ducks to make Sonic a good character; in fact, you need a strong supporting cast for Sonic to work with for it. Sonic can't do everything, which is a good thing... and that's why the other characters are there to fill what Sonic can't do on his own.
  3. Let me get this straight, Sonikku-chan. I get you're a fan of Sonic (the character) and you like him getting spotlights, yadda yadda. As a fan of him myself, I can understand where you're coming from. However, it's seeming that you're failing to realize that even Sonic has limits, flaws, fallacies and faults. Sonic isn't perfect, and neither is he a mentor; while I do expect him to have street smarts on the things he usually does like running and smashing badniks, Sonic isn't talented in every way. He isn't as experienced as Tails in mechanics, as experienced as Amy in hammers, as experienced as Knuckles about treasure hunting... The list can go on. One thing you might need to acknowledge is that while I can relate for your looking up to Sonic, Sonic isn't perfect; he has flaws and limits. Other characters exist to fill those flaws and limits... While Sonic fills the others'. I hate to derange my topic, but it works the same way in real life... Nobody is perfect, and nobody ever will be. A perfect human will be an impossibility in my eyes, and thus Sonic, to be a believable character, needs flaws. He needs to be... imperfect. When looking up to Sonic and admiring his qualities... You'll have to remember; not only do you have to learn from his triumphs, you need to learn from his errors, as well.
  4. Sonic 1, emulated on PC as a port on Sega CD that allows me to listen to Project Flash as I play the game. Beat Super Mario Advance 2: Super Mario World as well; I hope you appreciate the Year of Luigi.
  6. I'll just get to the point that I'm most concerned about: The music. The person who did it seems to be either an inexperienced beginner or a lazy bum, only changing instruments... and pitches, for whatever reason. The problem is, however, that the pitches of some of the instruments are left intact, giving it an horrible dissonance that just flat-out screams "BEGINNER HACK". Really, the melodies and themes themselves seem to be completely unchanged... Why not at least keep the music until you find someone more experienced?
  7. Wow, I'll have to say, I'm blown away! Back in the good ol' times when things were simple, I knew you as that tone-deaf guy who only made remixes... Time flies, doesn't it? To see you having come up with 15 original tracks (Well, 7 original compositions, it seems) after then is amazing; just comes to show everyone can and will improve! I can't say I'm familiar with Rider's normal musical style at all, but I'm very impressed with these compositions; your simple melodies seem to fit the... trance-esque? (please don't kill me) music you do very, very well! They're also very catchy for the most part, so kudos to you there. Your mixing and mastering seem to be rather top-notch, being more than I could frankly wish for for myself, heh... the equalization, effects and mixing you do (massive loves to SPOILERS Impending Avanlanche's glitcdh and dusk destruction's pitchben) are really quite impressive! All in all, I like this; I'm quite sure this is gonna be something I'm gonna listen to for quite some time! Great job, Faseeh.
  8. That's weird... I don't ever recall this happening before. Is this a recent change or something? I have been lurking for quite a while, after all... Maybe that would explain something It's really not too much of an issue, I guess.. Though even a minor issue is an issue, I'd presume. It's something I can personally live with, but if there's nothing else to fix, I guess this might be a good thing to work on; assuming it's possible, anyway.
  9. Bias and stereotype incoming, but looking at The Fox and Gangnam Style and that kinda stuff, I kinda think the popularity and alleged quality of a song by the mainstream public just depends on its humor factor nowadays. It's quite a shame, when there's tons of amazing people out there who really make good stuff yet get no attention, while there's tons of viral hits just because they're 'funny'. Of course there's tons of good music out there that happen to be popular, but really... The most popular ones just seem to be the ones trying to appeal with so-called humor to me, ya know?
  10. Connotations to an infamous game aside, the main theme for Sonic 4 is a good composition - It's definitely a very Sonic-esque composition, and a quite excellent follow-up to Sonic and Knuckles' theme, in my eyes. It just had not-too-hot instrumentation, but if it's gonna be a remix, I can assume that to be improved drastically. Of course, that still doesn't mean people wouldn't hate it... *shrugs*
  11. Okay so I know and love Windy Groove but I personally think for 9 remixes (however good they may be) $7 is a biiiit too much? I mean my 20-track Can of Nothing: Project Flash is $4 and even that's gonna be optional for 10 bonus downloads but lemme guess, rule of cashing in on existing IPs---- WHOOOOPDEFREEEAAAKINGDOOOOOIMEEEEEAAAAAAAN proper mixing. *shrug*
  12. I'd do this, but unfortunately, my voice is actually barely tolerable when singing. Jokes aside, I like the way how this sounds. I dunno right now, but if you guys don't have enough people in, drop me a line!
  13. Seriously, if Masato Nakamura didn't have a vocal theme to remix for the Death Egg Robo, I'm sure Ohtani can make something as well. That aside, I love Wonder World. The main melody just feels so much like a classic Sonic game's title screen, kinda like a "back to roots and moving on from there" kinda deal! The piano bit's really cool, too~
  14. As much as I understand that you'd like some activity in this topic, I'm quite annoyed about that bump of a post - if you want to make some activity, I'd assume something worth generating activity would be necessary to generate said activity. That aside, have a lil' concept I made a month or so ago. It's my last attempt to salvage an old Tails expy I made years ago - made some heavy redesigns here and there to prevent from looking too much like Tails. And yes, this is my only fancharacter as of now, and I might still scrap him.
  15. ...I'm starting to love SonAmy (I BLAME SPINDASH) too - Spinny's really kinda helped me see just how much potential it has as a compatible couple. Especially in particular, Adventure!Amy and Unleashed!Sonic - Like Verte's told me once, I think they could work out if they were like their depictions in said games. That aside.... T-this is kinda embarrassing, but... *gulp* ...I think Amy's kinda cute... and Honey the Cat, too... please don't kill me...

    Sonic Songs.

    Wow, these stuff are pretty darn kickass! I particularly love your Bridge Zone remix - It really sounds like there was time and effort put into it, with careful adjustments put into the arrangement and orchestration. Green Hill Zone doesn't sound too different, in my opinion... Do I sense a preference for Bridge? Still... It's really nice to see someone doing (faux)orchestral stuff around these places, and I hope to see you sticking around!
  17. And Windy Hill is a slower version of Rooftop Run. And Sky Hive is a remix of Skyscraper Scamper. And they actually aren't. Sure they're using similar instrumentation and composition styles, but really, they're not remixes or a 'variation' on an existing track. I really want to make a lengthy post going into detail but frankly I've said much much more than I need to about this game's music and my opinion of it than I need to already and I'm just really tired.
  18. I think Jason Griffith is my favorite voice actor for Sonic. Yes, you heard me, Jason Griffith. I know his voice is practically everywhere, but as I never really heard him outside the Sonic series, I have nothing to say about that... However, I will say that I love his extremely variable tone and being able to fit to every emotion Sonic was applied to. In Shadow, Sonic was portrayed as a gung-ho upbeat guy, as far as I could figure... He really sounded extremely cheery and energetic when delivering his lines. I know some people hated him around that period, and even sent him death threats... I didn't get to feel the impact of the change, but... I doubt I would've complained at all. I loved Jason's voice when they changed him to Roger - I did miss Jason, but... I liked Roger's attitude-ish voice in context of the more humorous writing in Colors. We'll come back to that in a second... Rush! Rush is actually one of my three most favorite performances of Jason - the other two being Black Knight and Unleashed. He, again, just sounds so upbeat, energetic and happy - a cheery contrast to the relatively less so Blaze, in my opinion. Although I have never gotten the chance to play the two Riders to give my opinion on, I'll finish off with my opinions on Unleashed and Black Knight - I LOVE THEM LOVE THEM LOVE THEM LOVE THEM LOVE THEM LOVE THEM LOVE THEM LOVE THE- *cough* I absolutely LOVE Sonic's portrayal in the two games - a laid-back and chill cool dude - but the cool was expressed in a non-attitude-ish way - a way that I completely agree with. Being yourself and proud of it. That's what Sonic was in the two games - Sure, he showed off here to there, but he didn't use any trendy talk or anything - just being himself. It's my favorite interpretation of Sonic, and I think that Jason pulled this personality off PERFECTLY. It's literally my favorite Sonic and voice EVER! *cough* no it's not because i think with enough practice, i could be a half-decent soundalike what are you talking about
  19. Alongside AR and Helix... I would like to announce my leave, as well. I'm taking a big break from remixing in general, for starters - There's barely enough time for my original albums, as it is now. Also... I'm frankly quite tired of two things - this forum, and the comparison between the 'popularity of' When Star Meets Pac and my other works. While I'm sure I'll get over the former soon enough, the last thing I want to be known for is being a remixer. If Vizard sees my originals and decides he would like some of them in SSMA, sure, but other than that... I won't be making remixes for a while. It was a very fun year, learning music from you guys and making lots of friends... But I'm getting tired already... I hope to see you guys again, both of us kicking more butt the next time we meet. Farewell, Sonic Stadium Music Album Team. I will miss every one of you involved.
