  1. This is my new remix. Tell me what you think. I'm finally starting to get my music on youtube thanks to my friends. I hope soon I can upload my favorites and get some fresh feedback on them.
  2. I just submitted this to EQD. It's my first actual youtube upload. I usually post my stuff on soundcloud, but I thought EQD would like it more if I had it in video format. Tell me what you think. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mb-qIS6T820&feature=youtu.be
  3. Video games are a different story for me. With Dead Space, I was never really scared by it, but I would say it is scary compared to other horror games. the problem is that it was too linear. I always knew where to go, and what looked different from before. Dead Space 2 improved on action and story, but fell behind in scariness. Then Dead Space 3 came out and lost all the things that made it horror. The main thing that made DS 1 scary was the feeling of tight corridors and not wanting to look around the corner. In 3, you are in an open world with snow. yes, The Thing was also in that setting and was done very well. I approve of the imitation DS 3 tried, but it didn't make me feel claustrophobic anymore.
  4. @Jokuc I agree with you on every note. Well, except with Prometheus. I was expecting exactly what i got and it even surprised me. I'm a very visual person, so i could really appreciate the sets, costumes, vehicles, and art designs. that's probably the main reason why I'm not scared by all these so called horror movies. I immerse myself in the way it looks, and then get disappointed when the big reveal of the villain is finally over with. Paranormal Activity was just some footprints in baby power and a chandelier moving by itself. No creativity. But even when the movie has good visual design, the music can kill it. If I hear high strings or a super deep bass rumbling in the background, I know something is going to try its best to scare me. Then when it finally comes, I'm subconsciously ready for it. The music in a movie has to lull you into a false comfort. It has to get creepy by sounding out of pitch, and off key. The music will always make or break a horror movie. I have never seen The Blair Witch Project, but because of all I've heard of it, I will most likely not be impressed. Once I have an opinion about a movie, I will keep it and try to match things to it as I watch.
  5. A lot of movies I watch just don't leave much of an impression on me. I've never seen a movie that made me have nightmares. Maybe it's because of the stuff I've gone through in my life. Or maybe it's because I know it could never happen. Movies like The Great Gatsby do make me think about a subject, but they rarely have an effect on me. So, what makes a horror movie scary? Is it the knowledge of inevitable doom, or simply the possibility of it? the unknown has always scared man, so how can a serial killer be scary when he's right there on screen with a knife? Maybe the only thing that's scary is the music. Music can influence emotions and make people relaxed or anxious. Or maybe the camerawork can make it more scary. When you cut to another angle just before showing something "scary" it can make it that much more interesting. I'm a big fan of horror movies because of the ideas they have. Some propose that the ideal family dream is a lie. Some say that everyone will eventually die. Some are about how humanity leads to destruction. They all make very big philosophical debates. But, some are not as well thought through. Take Paranormal Activity, for example. That movie rides on jump scares and the characters' reactions to random occurrences. It never makes the audience think about their own life or what it would be like if the stuff actually happened. It just tries to scare you with loud noises and bad acting. Also, the camera thing gets really old. It just shows how anybody could do it if they had the time. Movies like Alien, Predator, and The Thing are very sci-fi, have a lot of gore, but also state the fact that everyone will die. Whether it's by natural causes, their stupidity, or a monster. I love Alien not only because of the world it establishes, but because of the creature itself. I'm not scared of the Alien. I'm in awe of it. It's pure existence is to kill and hide. And it does a good job of that. Prometheus is in my top ten favorite films of all time. I can say I got goosebumps watching some of the scenes. I let myself get drawn into the world and characters, and that really helped me to see how great it was. It has a lot of statements too. Such as, knowledge is power. The whole movie is about humans treading where they shouldn't. They want to find out the meaning to life, why they were created, and they use technology to do that. This isn't necessarily a horror movie plot, but it does have its moments. So, what makes a good horror film? I don't know, but the makers of Cabin In The Woods sure knew. It was more of a parody of horror movies, but it made some really good points about plot structure and characters. Even the ending of it proved that all horror movies are alike. So what do you guys think? Am I looking at this too hard, or not enough?
  6. Everyone who has commented saying "This game is just not for me" Should still watch it at least. It explains mostly why everyone else is so excited for it.
  7. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=3u6IMFzLDbY You should watch that if you really have played GTA IV like you said. I'm not trying to prolong the argument, but I just watched it yesterday and thought it made some nice points.
  8. Alright. It would be good practice for you then. I don't totally suck at art, I just don't have the time to do it. So I hope I can give useful advice and whatnot.
  9. That would be great. We can talk on skype if you want. I'm electricvelocity on there. Do you have a deviantart that I can credit in the videos?
  10. I'm going to start posting my music on youtube and would like some original artwork for my songs. Pony or not. But, I have no money so the artist would have to just get credit in the description. I'm also looking for an original logo design. I really need to start establishing myself in the brony community as well as a musician. If anybody has some ideas as far as visuals, I would be very happy to hear them.
  11. I've recently started work on a project with some local bronies, but after I'm completely done, I'll be looking for something else to do. I just thought maybe there would be some people on here who are looking for music to put on their videos or fan-made things. I'm not that experienced with recording vocals, but I've been wanting to do some vocal tracks. Besides that, I can do a lot of genres of electronic music. House, Electronic Rock, and some Trance. If anybody's looking for original music, I'm willing to help. I just need to know what it's for and how long it needs to be. As far as payment, I'll let people decide if they want to do that once they hear my music. I've never been paid for my music, so it would be nice. But I'm fine doing it for free as long as I will be credited. If you need to listen to what I have so far, here's my Soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/electric-velocity I'm also looking for people who might want to do collabs. I use FL studio 10 and I can talk on skype if needed. I just need something to direct my creativity to.
  12. I also enjoy big discussions and debates, but that wasn't really the point of this thread. I was simply asking who was excited for the game and what they were going to do in multiplayer.
  13. First of all, there will be MORE THAN PLENTY of interesting things to do. Along with various recreational activities, there will be racing, exploring, shooting, and all sorts of customization on your characters, cars, and even home. I don't mean to offend, but GTA V is about you deciding how the game will be interesting to you. It gives players the option to follow a well written story or free roam the city in HD with so much to do, you won't even know where to start. I'm sure lots of people will agree with me that everyone can find something they will like about GTA V. As far as "style" which you keep referring to, it has plenty of it. It's a fictionalized parody of real life, so you can expect a lot of jokes and humorous things throughout the game. I wouldn't judge it too harshly since it hasn't even been released yet.
  14. Excuse me, but how could a fictionalized parody of Los Angeles where you have absolute freedom to do whatever you want be boring?
  15. Even if you haven't played a GTA game like me, you should definitely think about getting it. It will be one of the best, if not the best, games of the year.
