Wow, I come back and this place is deader than dead? Not expecting this thread to get attention very quickly, but let's just put this out there anyway.
I don't think it lives up to Brawl's legacy in terms of size, but personally - and this is very subject to personal tastes - I think the new tracks have higher quality to them. Brawl had more of an abundance of tracks that, IMO, really shouldn't have happened. (P.S.: Size isn't everything!)
Metroid only got two new tracks. Boo!
Then there's Sonic. Early on, I figured it was likely that Sonic wouldn't get any better music treatment. However, I also thought that if Sonic's not gonna get a single proper remix this time, they should at least borrow plenty from Generations. It's a good enough way to make up for it. I only kinda sorta got my wish. One track from Generations was used. It was one of my favorites - modern Rooftop Run - but I was still left with a sour aftertaste.
It's pretty worthless to only take away the negatives from a game's experience, though. There's still plenty of good music to be had!

How's it dead when so much has happened since your last sign in?
Personally, I love the new tracks. It's more like Melee's, where quality prevails over quantity. Brawl's soundtrack sounds good, but it also deviates more. The fact that the Melee music sounds like it's played with different instruments (compression much?) doesn't help. If a lay person like me can detect audible compression, it's bad -- and too bad about that, since it does no justice to the original (though unreleased until now) versions.
I'm also a bit surprised about the lack of new Sonic music, but hey, Escape from the City is now available.
Sorry, I must've forgotten I even posted this thread. I'm also not sure where I got the idea that this place was dead, either, but hey, it WAS more than a month ago.
Yeah, Brawl was a very inconsistent soundtrack. It was pretty great in places, but there were more than a few tracks that were very forgettable. One of the only advantages Brawl's music has over Smash 4's is the Mute City remix. The new Smash 4 version just didn't seem right to me. (Also rather disappointed that F-Zero got barely anything new, but their focus was on quality over quantity, like YL said.)
Also, I have a question about the music in Wii Fit Trainer's reveal trainer. Was that music even in the soundtrack? I can't find it anywhere. What's the name of it?
nocturnal YL: This kind of reminds me of modern 3D printing, where the software needs to formulate the steps for replicating the object rather than just going in a simple 2D matrix manner as in inkjet printing. Nice video.

Evie the Mother Hen ❤✿: From the looks of it we could create a Pokémon Family ROM hack, FE Family, etc.; but if the number of stiching points was changed from the original design you'd need to fix that with more hacking.

Nester the Lark: I'm working on something for the forum. Hopefully I'll have it finished this week.

nocturnal YL: I settled on the games I'll showcase for my NinDB Top 25. I've tried a lot of games, but a list of favourites is going to be imbalanced regardless. There are absolutely no NES, N64, DS and original Game Boy games in my list.

nocturnal YL: Given that I just said what my favourite games are not long ago, my list will be unsurprising. Now, should I attempt to rank them? What aspects should I highlight to make them more interesting? Hmm…

Nester the Lark: Remember the "Everybody Votes" channel on the original Wii? There was a section where you could submit your own suggestion for a poll. I seem to recall two of my suggestions being used, but I only remember what one of them was.

Nester the Lark: Here's an archive of results from the Everybody Votes channel. I found my poll question in the US English section for September 1, 2009.

nocturnal YL: Do you consider yourself to be more of a ... Romantic: 39.1% Realist: 60.9% This one, right? So… what's your own vote to that question? (I'd have picked realist.)
May 6, 2021 9:58:40 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: ^ At the time, I think I picked romantic. Not sure what I'd pick today. I feel like I'm somewhere in between.

Nester the Lark: Lately, the forum feels more like "Nester & YL's clubhouse."

nocturnal YL: Looking at the other members' last online date, I can safely say that this place is pretty much inactive by now.

Nester the Lark: Looking at an old post I wrote two years ago, I noticed I misspelled "threw" as "through," and now I'm angry at myself.

nocturnal YL: …Why am I still seeking gaming news when I have 7 games yet to complete and at least 2 more that I plan to get? (EDIT — Oh right, Ys IX has a confirmed release date. That makes at least 3 games I'll get later.)

nocturnal YL: My current plan is to play Atelier Firis DX now, which online guides suggest is long. Atelier Lydie & Suelle DX will likewise be long (longer than the original too, due to DLC, DX additions and I'll make the best items). I'll maybe play Ys Origin after.

nocturnal YL: Not sure about what I'll play after. Another Atelier game will probably be out by then, either completing the Secret series or giving us Arland 5. Either way, I'll probably play those before going elsewhere. Dusk will have to wait for quite a bit…
