Passions in life - games, music and the combination / creation of the two. Doing a lot of videogame music covers, mainly rockin'!
Spent super much time as a "competitive" FPS gamer, like this. Lost the motivation though and found the work/time/headache to fun/reward ratio to be really messed up, so quit that right before newyears '09. Back to the roots - fun games for pure enjoyment! Mega Man fo' lyfe.
You best believe it took a while to sit and listen out each and every one of these roughly five billion delicious TurboGrafx-16 notes (and then figure out what to do with them all). Quite happy with how it turned out in the end!
As I've already told Chad; I constantly had his high regard for this game (as expressed on RFGO) in the back of my head from the moment I got the link to the original soundtrack, so even though I hadn't played it myself I had that "this game is amazing, I'm so motivated to do my best tribute!" feeling while working on the cover. Of course, the game is amazing as I've now confirmed (please "enjoy" my first time playing it in the video, heh) and I'll absolutely be playing it some more for all the cool bonus stages etc that I've seen on reviews and stuff.
But man, the music in this. I'd play a lot more pinball games if Devil's Crush was the norm :)
