OLRmageddon

With Brunzo takin' his twelfth gold, he decides that MOAR PARTICIPATION IS NEEDED, and thus has given us this!



That's right, Games with Water! Now what does that mean? It means if a game has water ANYWHERE in it, it is eligible for the mixing! And that means any song! Super Mario Galaxy? Check! Final Fantasy IV? Check! Silver Surfer? CHECK! Even if there's only water in one particular area, any song from the game will count! So really, your favorite game and/or that mix you've been putting off for a while will probably count, and that means YOU SHOULD ENTER.

And our bonus is...



That's right, the 'too-many-notes' genre; JAZZ! Basically, if your mix is in the style of jazz or has a little influence of it, you'll get the bonus. Having gone to a jazz school, I can tell you that the four main elements of jazz are:

-syncopation
-improvisation
-call & response
-polyrhythms

So, put any of that in your mix, and you'll get the bonus! Pretty easy if you ask me (but you didn't)!

Exclamation XO'S CHALLENGE Exclamation

Uh oh, looks like a new CHALLENGE has appeared! The challenge itself is easy, but it may confuse what you think is required, so stay with me!

The challenge is, remix the 'water' music of the game you choose. This only applies to game with dedicated water themes (e.g. Stage 2-2 in SMB), so if you an extra +1 point on your mix, then choose wisely!

OK, listen closely! Your options are:
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
-Select any game with water in it (even Tetris!), and remix any theme.

-=OR=-

-Select any game with a dedicated water theme, and remix that theme (earns +1).
-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
Then, if you choose to add some jazz influence, you'll get the bonus as well (but as always, it's not required.)

Are you still with me? Did that make sense? Good!

Arrow Mixing begins when you read this.
Exclamation Mixing ends on September 26th 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 on September 30th at 11:59 PM EST.
dump truck Rinse & repeat.

please to have entries this time...(´;ω;`)

i don't know what syncopation is, but one time i think i heard someone in my family physician's waiting room complain that he was syncopated, so i guess it involves square waves

there's water in Act 3 of scrap brain zone; this does not qualify it as the game's dedicated "water music" but it is music that plays in at least one instance wherein there is a noteworty amount of water present. does this qualify it for your Executive Officer's Challenge? will you be a jew and note that there is no concrete evidence that the purple limited-viscosity non-breathable fluid which behaves exactly as does other bodies of water in the game might actually be robotnik's secret Robitussin stash and thus is not even water at all?

If we are talking in regards to the original Sonic the Hedgehog, then Labyrinth Zone would be considered that game's dedicated 'water music,' as all three zones have water whereas the first two acts of Scrap Brain severely lack Robotnik's aforementioned Robotussin supply. So nope, don't qualify.

I propose that ice levels count as water levels because ice is comprised of H2O....

What about levels / places... With rain?

Like FFVI's Zozo and Sky High Zone in Sonic 2 for the Master System?

And I kinda disagree with ice levels. It will broaden... "too much". And I think we allhave already a lot of ideas for Ye Olde Ice Cap Zone.

Gosh, that song is a little overrated.

I don't know about Zozo (as I'm busy playing Chrono Trigger so FFVI will have to wait), but Sky High Zone totally doesn't count when the next zone is Aqua Lake Zone (even though Mazedude did a pretty awesome version of it already).

Just because it constantly rains in Zozo doesn't really make it a water level imo. If it was underwater, then I guess it'd count as one.

well spatially speaking if it is constantly experiencing rainfall then it is under water, just like baghdad is under fire

hey what about the drowning music in sonic games

I would say because that theme is featured in multiple games, it's not considered 'dedicated' as you can die in any zone that's got water. Plus, it's more of a death theme than a water theme.

You can always mix it with something else, but by itself it wouldn't count.

That's the perfect punchline for new what-ifs, just worse than the already discussed.

I'm between some songs but I'm definitely participating this time.

Underground Sewer and Undersea Palace are the two songs from the beloved Chrono Tigger that apply for the theme this month~

As much as I'm dying to do a jazzed up Zozo mix, I'mma propose that Zozo is a no go because the game already has the Serpent Trench.

You can still do a jazzy Zozo. You just don't get the +1 bonus for a water stage mix.

Right; the discussion of water mixes is only for the XO's Challenge. Since FFVI has the aforementioned Serpent Trench, that makes every song in the game remixable for this month.
