    I couldn't fit "Asparagus" into my username anymore thanks to the character limit. So now it's bastardised to "Aspargus" (whatever that means...)

    eeyahahaaa, it is this website's unspoken rule *devil emoji* (though why bring that up now, just out of curiosity)

    Also, it's good to know I didn't just imagine that 3rd A
    Okay gang, serious talk. Drifting Away:
    First Section (Pop; Deow Bass, Guitar on off-beat)
    2nd Section (Latin; 12-String Guitar & Perc. Organ)
    3rd Section (Swing; Brass & Elec. Guitar)
    4th Section (Lounge/Classical; Vibraphone, Strings)

    Name your pick and why you picked it

    Mario vs Donkey Kong for GBA is such an underrated game IMO. Everyone seems to know the Mario vs Donkey kong games from Minis March Again onwards, but the first two games seem to have fallen into obscurity for some reason, which is a major bummer, since they are really good puzzle-platformers. Especially the first one, because that's the only one in the entire series which does not focus on the mini-mario's but on Mario himself instead.
    Recently, Youtuber The Lonely Goomba covered both games, which is nice to see.

    About your quote, I still wonder whether or not that was a kid-friendly reference to those on-demand erotic TV channels. That voice it makes when saying "Mmm, bananas" and the fact that it's about, well, bananas certainly makes it plausible that DK was about to watch something that he didn't want to show us...

    Mario vs. Donkey Kong is actually itself an homage to Donkey Kong on the Game Boy. I've played it before, and it's basically the same experience but feels more polished (ironically) as I recall.

    I'm pretty sure the commercial was more likely an abstract jab at those ads for yogurt and the like which are all artsy and have an ASMR-ass voice narrating over them.
    Watching Jerma's Pikmin 2 stream. At 4:59:20, this big rock snail guy's stomping sound effect sounds just like what I imagine high quality clips of Bowser's Mario 64 stomping would sound like. Also, the brass samples sound awfully similar to WariOwOrld's brass.

    What song is this a cover of?? It came into my head last month, but I have no idea where from.
    It's by either Queens of the Stone Age or Muse.

    A Rhodes Piano is used in Mario Party 2? That's quite nice. I've always liked the distinctive style of the Rhodes piano; it should be used way more, not only in VGM but also in popular music. It's quite a shame how it has become something of a "forgotten instrument" rather quickly after the sixties. Similar to the unique sound of the Hammond organ, although it's still occasionally heard in modern pop music (As far as I know, the last moderately successful pop song to use both instruments is the Toploader cover of Dancing in the Moonlight from the year 2000) and fortunately also in video game music, like in the works of Jake Kaufman, who used in a few Shantae tracks.
    By the way, now that you're mentioning instruments and synth sounds, do you know if this
    Kirby track's orchestra hits are of the famous [Orch2] sample version? (Keep in mind that this audio is heavily compressed.)
    Like I told you before, much like with the Synth Drum, I like the orchestra hit as well, and it's definitely something that should be used more often, too. It's not only something for 90's rap songs and SNES fighting game soundtracks, you know?
    (By the way, as a matter of fact I recently came across an old YouTube comment of yours where you were discussing the orchestra hit in that Stadium Rave SpongeBob song, and it game me quite a pleasant Aha-Erlebnis for some reason.)

    Sounds like Ancient Egyptian disco. Love it. That bass sounds really good.

    By the way, tahutoa, can you please provide me a download link of that Pumped up Bear song you once made? (The complete version?) I know it's on Youtube, but I'd like to add it to my Google Drive offline playlist.

    Thanks man.
    Today I saw a sprite sheet for PSI Shield Sigma which explicitly stated "Do not" give credit. I've never seen a sprite sheet say that before.

    I love sprite sheets. Brings me back to the good ol' days of browsing them on the Spriter's Resource.

    I still visit the site from time to times, even though I'm not a spriter. I just love seeing how my favourite video games can be so meticulously designed, and I have a certain thing for backgounds in video games. I can look at Kirby backgrounds for hours.
    do you think the reason Wario says his name all the time is because in-universe people are also fucking stupid and keep pronouncing it as wɔriˌoʊ

    Yes, I had that headcanon as well. But then, everyone in the Mario universe keeps saying his / her name over and over like they're some kind of Pokémon.

    By the way, how the heck do you type those backwards c and upside-down Omega signs?

    I didn't. I looked up the phonetic pronunciation for "war" and then from there navigated to "barrio" (apparently, that's a real word), the closest thing that site had to the proper name Mario.

    I like to think Wario got into the habit because of the war-io thing, and then he was already in the habit so even when he was technically alone he'd do it still. ....Hey wait a minute, no he doesn't.
    I actually can't think of a single solo outing where he does say his name (discounting the title screen for Wario World, because he's referring to us, the player). Like, for the Greenhorn Forest boss he says "IIII'M-A NUMBUHR WAAHHN", not "WAAARIO number one".

    He does do it in Wario Land: Shake It, but I don't know if I'd even call that a solo outing. Although Wario is for the most part travelling alone, he's interacting with several other people, and often enough to where anyone who was a habit of this kind would probably be quick to indulge it: he has to rescue a Merfle every level, after all.
    WL4 also has NPC characters, however Shokora spends most of the game as either a cat or an animated hieroglyph, and Scienstein doesn't even acknowledge Wario's existence, let alone speak with him. Their adventures through the Golden Pyramid are both mutually exclusive. It could be said that Scienstein thinks of Wario the same way we the player see Scienstein-- a means of furthering our progress, and nothing more-- assuming he does at all, which I doubt, since he never actually reacts to Wario, only his actions.
    So, in other words, Wario wouldn't feel the need to fall back into "WAAARIooo, I'M-A WAAAAHRIO, YOU HEAR ME??!!?! WWWAH--RIO. WAH.", because the NPCs in 4 aren't really in a position where he'd be communicating with them.

    I can't believe I just accidentally gave my stupid joke headcanon actual credence.
    Sheet Music for The Frog Flap: The Frog Flap ~ WarioWare, inc.

    Here's one interesting thing I learned from working on it. So, I'd forgotten to add the harmony for the Lead (kind of understandable, since it's so quiet). Listening back to the audio also had me realize I'd used the wrong instrument for it to begin with, when I was implementing actual Wario patches for the sound. So, I went digging back through WarioWare Twisted's patches a second time, intending to add them to the makeshift sf2 for Inc. I created (for occasions like this, where using one sf2 at a time is optimal).
    Apparently, the lead instrument (the one that's combined with the xylophone) is literally the Clarinet from Ocarina of Time.
    Would any of you mind signing this petition to get Pac-Man World's released in its original studio quality?

    Just did. But I don't know if it will have any impact; people tend to overestimate petitions, especially online ones. But if it makes you happy, you should definitely give it a try.
    Wait, it was your birthday 2 days ago? Damn, sorry for not wishing you happy birthday. Guess I'll wish you a late happy birthday now instead.

    Well, please accept my "happy birthday" as well then. I've been quite absent the last week because of personal issues, so better late than never!
