OLRmageddon

With two straight wins and his third gold, Tarrasque does his thing once again since nobody cares about this contest except him and myself!

Tarrasque wrote:
YOU'RE ALL GOING TO DIE


and this is how it will happen
Pic by Tarrasque

Entering into the two-thousand and eleventh year of our Gord, we have spent
many generations preparing ourselves for the ultimate tragedy: The death of Betty White.

But since that's not going to happen, we can instead brace ourselves for the ultimate relief:
Everyone you hate is going to be killed by the universe itself, for no reason.
Also you will die too but that is an acceptable loss.

Why? Ask the Mayans, it's their fault!

Back before we invented science, all we knew was that the sun gods made bad things happen
when we didn't sacrifice enough goats to them. In modern times, we have invented marvels like
astronomy and theoretical physics, which tell us how many goats is enough - but the best
indicator of the End Times is still the very same calendar invented so many eons ago by a
race of mudeating polytheists with no internet access. It was very thoughtful of them to tell
us when time stops working! In our futuristic hubris, we just assumed that clocks start over
from the beginning when they run out of circle.

This error has cost us all. There will never be hovercars because of what we have done.

In celebration of this Grand Cosmic Cleansing, OLRemix and company will be kicking off 2011,
our final year to celebrate before Haggar piledrives a space shark facefirst into the planet,
by remixing the background music for Last Levels and End Bosses.



Eligible Titles

Note: The track you choose must be either the theme of the end boss, or the background music for the final level!

  • Sonic the Hedgehog titles: If you didn't assume this was a given, it is probably okay that you will die.

  • The Turrican series: Some tracks may be recycled from other games in the series, but it still counts.

  • Ristar: Kaiser Greedy's theme is half-and-half, the first part being a unique piece, the second a
    throwback to earlier boss themes. The first part of the arrangement is what qualifies it.

  • Chex Quest: Oh come on, let's just get to the stuff you aren't allowed to do.


Ineligible Titles

Naughty, naughty! Don't pick these, or Cthulhu will eat you last!

  • The original Super Mario Bros.: The final encounter with Bowser in this game uses the same boss music
    as every other encounter with Bowser. Sorry, Mario! This song is also in another castle.

  • Tetris games: No end boss, no final level, no dice.

  • Street Fighter games, with the exception of MvC2 wherein Arcade Mode always ends with Abyss: A character
    does not qualify as the end boss just because he shows up last on the arcade rotation if that character
    is also playable. Shin Akuma might end you, but he might not always mark the end of a game, theme or no theme.

    If you always face off against a specific character regardless of which character you play, however,
    the game is eligible. An example would be the original Samurai Shodown title; even if you play as Amakusa, you will
    fight him as the end boss, and he has a unique theme.

  • Garfield: Caught in the Act!: The end boss theme is the game's main theme. The track in question
    must be used uniquely for either the end boss or the last level.




BONUS: EVERYTHING MUST GO



Pic by Xenon Odyssey

Beyond 2011, there won't be any reason to buy anything anymore, because the Earth will be a
giant sandblasted marble devoid of life! It's your last chance to sell stuff to people!

You will earn your holiday bonus if your mix vocally advertises a commercial product!
Nothing inspires impulse buying like One Winged Angel, and the last time they played
Golden Silver's theme at Wal-Mart, I couldn't find a single box of E.L.Fudge cookies in stock!
I have to take Miralax or I'll die of an impacted colon! GOD HAS FORSAKEN ME!!


SO yeah!

Arrow Mixing begins when you read this.
Exclamation Mixing ends on December 30th at 11:59 PM EST (8:59 PM for the PST-ers).
Arrow Voting begins as soon as the songs are uploaded to the site.
Exclamation Voting ends whenever I decide, so vote early!
dump truck Rinse & repeat.

oh noes

That description is the best description.

I have a question for clarification, tho: Are those 4 titles listed as eligible just for example, or are those the only 4 allowed at all? (This is a stupid question, but I want to be clear just in case someone else thought the same thing!)

Wouldn't be much of a contest is those are the only four allowed!

Stuff like the Bowser's theme from SMB3 or SMW, along with Dark Gaia from Illusion of Gaia would all be fair game because those themes only play during the final boss fight against them.

As always, anything you aren't sure on can be brought up and discussed!

I know remixes are supposed to be in by Dec. 27, but I was thinking it might be cool to extend the deadline to sometime in January like DoD does. I know they're just doing it for Magfest, but people might be away or doing shit for the holidays and not have as much time to remix.

Just an idea...

Well, if by the 27th I don't have any mixes, we'll see about some type of extension. And possibly some overhaul on the competition itself.

Results!

1st Place - Tarrasque - captain beefheart died earlier this month, which is a mortal wound to the weird music scene and one from which we may never recover. at least we still have modest mouse and the residents. but anyway you can all go to hell - 16+2=18 points

2nd Place - dasaten - Wily's Last Stand - 10 points

3rd Place - Brunzolaitis - In the Galleon over the Gangplank - 8 points
