Music / Re: BDS Presents You With Unsolicited Musical Opinions!
« on: August 13, 2017, 04:57:31 PM »
BDS, we need to talk music sometime, our tastes are nearly identical.

Hi. Big time Liszt fan, first time caller. Liszt's music is all about showing off; he was one of the greatest pianist of all time and he made sure you knew that with all of his piano pieces. While this is one of his more fanciful pieces it is deceptively difficult; albeit it being on the easier side of his works. Daj is right with half the charm of Liszt is performing with that bravado-bravura attitude, but the other half is in the complexity of the music itself. Liebestraum is but a taste of his harmonic prowess, and I advise you to seek out other works by him, though I feel he really shines with his orchestral material.

I always found it amusing that Paul wrote a song in Fats' style and then he later covered it, like it came full circle.

Chiming in on a few things I missed earlier:

MK64 is not the best in the series, as Slow said before it's simply outdone by later versions that did what MK64 did but better. That said the 2D Mario Kart Games (SMK and MK:SC) are easily some of the worst racing games I've ever played, while at the time they did what they could on the Super Nintendo, there's just some things parallax scroll can't replicate well versus true 3D: depth perception. That said I think one of the best things MK64 has for it is its course design; there's a reason why nearly every course from the game has been adapted for later installments.

Sunshine is a good game, the reason why it's regarded so poorly is simply because every other 3D Mario game is fantastic. SM64 and Galaxy are often tied for the best in the franchise because of how much they elevated game design in general. Sure, aspects of SM64 are pretty dated, but it's still perfectly playable even by modern standards. To better compare Sunshine consider it Beethoven's 4th Symphony to SM64 being his 3rd, and Galaxy being his 5th.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, DK64 is Grant Kirkhope's best work; Banjo-Kazooie gets all the love and attention but DK64 has a polish that his other work of the era lacks.

I haven't been in a spelling bee since I was 7.

Not for nothing, but Breaking Bad is a very good show. It's also incredibly dark as its one of those shows where you think they've hit the bottom but they keep falling.

They're fun videos sometimes, but too often I feel like they just aren't paying attention as some of their sins are plot points that are already addressed or addressed later.

The way I look at DLC is if its absence makes for a poorer game then it should've been part of the release; if the game is fine without it then it's fine as DLC.

Started replaying Galaxy.

And by replaying I mean recording.

I was wondering when they'd get around to that.
