OLRmageddon

With everyone abandoning the contest last month, I'M TAKING MATTERS INTO MY OWN HANDS!



For this coldest of months, I bring you snow & ice! Any level that features these two elements AND has unique music is fair for the remixing this month. When I say unique, I mean specifically for that stage. For example, the overworld music in New Super Mario Bros. Wii doesn't count because it's the same in all the other worlds, not just for World 3. The map music is fair, but not the stage theme.

And your bonus:



Ho ho! No, we aren't teeming up (wouldn't be much of a contest anyway, with NO ONE SHOWING UP); we're just stealing a page out of their book! If you play a live instrument in your mix, you'll earn the bonus for this month. Now, in order to ensure that everyone can earn the bonus, basically a live instrument means anything that is not sequenced. So singing counts, beatboxing counts, hitting the table rhythmically with your hands/utensils/penis, etc. But IT CAN'T BE SEQUENCED (so no recording a sound and using it as a sample/soundfont, either).

Exclamation XO'S CHALLENGE Exclamation

And what's this? An XO challenge? That's right; the third iteration of this desperate attempt for more participation is as follows: if you remix your song in a tropical style (i.e. steel drums, nylon guitars, ambient seagulls, etc.), you will earn +3 bonus points and an extra +1 on your vote! Yes! If your remix qualifies, you'll get 3 extra bonus points (for a total of +5 if you play an instrument live) and your vote will extend from (+3, +2, +1) to (+3, +2, +1, +1)! Will that be enough incentive? Will you even use the extra vote (since if there isn't more than three entries, you can't even use it)? Only time holds the answer.


Arrow Mixing begins when you read this.
Exclamation Mixing ends on December 27th 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 December 31st at 11:59 PM EST.
dump truck Rinse & repeat.

You're as coooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooold as ice!

Actually, the Overworld music in World 3 is slightly different than the other worlds. It's remixed with jingle bells and shit.

True, but compositionally, it's pretty much the same song. Plus, you guys should know by now what I mean when I say the music has to be unique to the area.

ICE CAP

BE COOL, BE WILD, AND BE GROOVY!

FREEZEEY PEAK

THE HIMALAYAS (wait, you did this one already...I think?)

PHENDRANA DRIFTS

RING RINK

SNOWPEAK

ICE CAVERN

MAGIC CRAFTERS (Alpine Ridge, High Caves, Wizard Peak, and Blowhard)

MOUNTAIN OF SOULS

NORTHERN HEMISPHERES & ICE CAVE CHANT

IN A SNOW-BOUND LAND

JANGLE BELLS & FROSTY FROLIC

CRYSTAL CAVES

EVERFROST PEAK, WALRUS COVE, & FROSTY VILLAGE

FRAPPE SNOWLAND

ICE MAN, BLIZZARD MAN, FREEZE MAN, FROST MAN, & CHILL MAN (if there are any I missed, dasaten can fill us in, since I only did the original Mega Man series and not the X series or Mega Man & Bass)

The Diddy Kong Racing ones (specifically Walrus Cove and Frosty Village) is some good tunage, but I'm sure there are more from games that I haven't had the pleasure of playing yet!

I only played Megaman X and X2. There's Chill Penguin in X, which is a great tune.

ELDAM MOUNTAINS from Ys 3 is freaking badass!

And, there are always the classic A WISH and EIGHT RINGING BELLS from the ice land in Secret of Mana.

Welp, using this handy list here, here are the Mavericks that apply for the theme:

CHILL PENGUIN

BLIZZARD BUFFALO

FROST WALRUS

BLIZZARD WOLFANG

I'm hesitant to include Crystal Snail, since judging by the gameplay, there doesn't seem to be any wintery elements, just see-through rocks (since crystals are not exclusive to ice). Same goes with Crystal Man from Mega Man 5.

There's also Sigma's Stage 1 from X2, Absolute Zero, which takes place in the North Pole.

Personally, I'd like to see someone try a Snow Bros. mix.

I'd like to say in my defense that I'm bad even at making "bad" stuff.

I'm the mediocre of the mediocre.
