Music - same or just similar?
« on: March 30, 2012, 08:25:51 AM »
Heya all :D

I loved the game (think I posted about that somewhere else) and yesterday I was just listening to my playlist and somehow it ended up on "Ephixa - Bring that beat back" and my mind told me "That's Mirrorlied!!!" ... But I'm not sure.

Ephixa - Bring That Beat Back
starts at 1.34

Now this might be common knowledge or something, but it was news to me :)

So did Ephixa do a remix of this? Are Reives and Ephixa one and the same, or what's the case here?

No matter what the story behind this is, I think it's awesome ^^  :pewpewpew:

Hahah, that's pretty cool. I'm glad TML came first, or I'd be worried. :p Either way, I think it's pretty reminiscent, but not overly similar from the composition's perspective. The similar instrument choice adds to it!

Yeah, I can see it being reminiscent, but it's totally not the same. Good catch, though!

Somewhere deep inside I was hoping it was a rip-off so I could watch Kan "The Muscle" Gao spread the pain like butter on toast.

What if the butter is cold because then it is difficult to spread??

It is pretty similar.

^Kan "The Muscle" Gao is not bothered by such trivial things as cold butter, because the simple fact it's like jello from fear already :D

Old River was as dead as a doornail, this must be distinctly understood or nothing wonderful can come of the story I am about to relate.

Only if it's Notch style. http://notch.tumblr.com/post/9038258448/hey-bethesda-lets-settle-this


So basically whoever can complete To the Moon in the hour free trial would keep the music. You have to read every word out loud.

Dayyuummm.... finishing To the Moon before the hour long demo is up... sounds like a challenge to me.

It's actually not too hard if you can get the warp whistle early on. I saw a guy speed-run it in 45 minutes.

Warp whistle? Are we still talking about To the Moon? Am I being trolled?

I think he means the game in the link. A warp would ruin To the Moon's story.

I have no concept of humour. I am sorry.

I read an article once about how humor is based in absurdity. It's primary example was if you walked into someone's bedroom and found a banana on their pillow. The absurdity of the situation would warrant humor.

A good example is a platypus with a hat. I know it's hard to imagine, but picture a platypus swimming underwater with a brown hat. It's so absurd that it's funny. You'll come around one day, PurpleOrange. :-D

If I saw a banana on a pillow I would just presume the person wanted to eat it so put it there to ensure they did not forget. I do find things funny but they either have to be extremely ridiculous or just someone's stupidity. I did find a car crash on a police program pretty funny, then eveyone was disturbed by me finding that funny. However by my logic the people must of been okay for it to be allowed in a program. But subtle stuff can escape me.
