Re: Ray Harryhausen (And Stop-Mo in General.)

Stop motion is cool. I remember growing up with the Wallace and Gromit shorts as a kid, as well as Chicken Run.

This was obviously the basis for the models in Clayfighter as well. I think Donkey Kong Country too?

Autumn Music?

With September coming next month (thanks, Captain Obvious!), there isn't a better time to prepare for an autumn music playlist than right now. I love the fall scenery; the cloud heavy skies, the leaves falling off the trees, and the cool temperatures. So with that said, what artists/albums really br...

Re: First album, artist, or group that rocked your world

I was listening to a lot of hard rock around the time Radiohead's In Rainbows album came out. When I heard "House of Cards" I was instantly blown away. So much so that I went and listened to the entire catalog. They've been my favorite band ever since. If you don't mind me asking, what ba...

Favorite Sonic The Hedgehog Soundtrack?

As well as providing kickass gameplay, Sonic the Hedgehog provides kickass music. So which game in your opinion has the best soundtrack? My personal favorite is Sonic 3D Blast on the Genesis. The quality and resolution of techno pop is NUTS, and "Volcano Valley" and "Rusty Ruin" ...

New Music Thread

In response to several threads suggesting there's no good music in today's era, I've created this thread on current music that I think is good. The thread is simple: Post new releases or albums/songs from the 2010s' that you think everyone should discover/listen to. I'll go first. Fleet Foxes (a fol...

Pokemon Snap (N64)

I just got this game back from a friend of mine who was renting it, and made sure to check if it's held up or it's aged poorly. Luckily, it's stood the test of time! What makes this game stand out is it's designed like a first person rail shooter, except you're lining up a crosshair to take pictures...

Re: What are the most overrated and underrated consoles???

Overrated: Super Nintendo: I don't really think any console is overrated, but this is the closest. The system had a huge amount of slowdown early on in comparison to the games on the Genesis, which I just prefer overall to the SNES. Underrated: Gamecube: Loads of awesome exclusives, and even if it d...

+1. Murmur's lyrics are classic.

This. The Genesis handled electronic dance music perfectly, especially the synthpop and techno that were huge in the late 80s and early 90s respectfully.
