New Songs Week of 12/3-12/7

This week was so going to be stuffed...and then my computer died. Luckily, I had uploaded 3 of my 5 files already, and those were able to come out. Flutterborn is a trance reinterpretation of So Many Wonders, stepped by Lirodon. Afterlife is a remix of Christian band Switchfoot's hit, giving it a hiphop/dancehall flavor. FOREVER (JackTHerbert Remix) is a much more hardcore reinterpretation of the song. The steps, according to designer Dreamland200, were inspired by VANESSA, and they are hard enough to warrant replacing Party With Pinkie [VIP] as Pinkie's boss song in-game. Rest assured, VIP is still in the game, but it is now part of the normal tracklist.

Now, for the 2 less fortunate tracks. Livin' la Vida Loca had its recent PMV, having the crazy life of Pinkie at the focus. You Give Love a Bad Name was a result of consistent requests for Bon Jovi, and I regret not being able to release it this week. Hopefully, in these next few weeks, I'll get the hard drive casing I need and salvage the hard drive with the files.

New Songs Week of 11/27-11/30

First, bad news. I decided that the game needed some break cleaning, and have axed a number of simfiles from the game. The entire mix formerly known as Pulsar is now in purgatory, with perhaps some songs refined for what will be the new Pulsar, comprising mainly of Pulsar 2 songs. However, some of those will also be cut:

  • Burn it Down - Linkin Park
  • Everybody's Fool - Evanescence
  • How Far We've Come - Matchbox 20
  • Right Now - Psy
Everything else remains. We also have some new Trotmania 2 songs headed your way, with Trixie's Good Side and Make it Special (Season Rebirth Mix) being added.

New Songs Week of 11/19-11/21

Trotmania 2 is still in its early development stage, with more tracks coming to club this week from it. Applejack's Theme from Fighting is Magic and FOREVER by General Mumble are both making their debuts. In addition, the 1.40 patch song, Hold Me, is being added, spawning the popular Want It Need It PMV. Don't think normal players are being neglected, though! We also have Right Now, the first single off Psy Five, in lieu of its removal from Fiesta 2. At least now we get a taste of what it's like in a rhythm game situation. Also, for the weird selection this week, we have March of the Cards from Alice in Wonderland. I can actually provide background on the pick: I now have a baby sister and the Alice soundtrack was one of the albums we use to calm her. Listening to the march, I realized how steppable it was, and it now makes its debut as a Challenge track!

New Songs Week of 11/12-11/16

Saturday was completely dedicated to one thing: making a video. It was my first PMV, Brain Stew by Green Day, and it's coming to club this week! We also have Cowboy Casanova by Carrie Underwood coming this week, from her 2009 album Play On.

Finally, there's a flood of Trotmania content coming, with Race Against Time, Magic, and Party With Pinkie [VIP] all making their debuts today.

New Songs Week of 11/5-11/9

Ironing out the kinks in the Trotmania release (which is now live) took up most of my time this week. However, I am able to work on one song: the very requested Gangnam Style! Yep, we finally got the song with the dance into the game. The Basic charts has sections where you can imitate the dance, while the Expert chart goes to the synth line. Happy galloping, both of you! Speaking of that, Trotmania's patch songs are also in the works, with these new songs considered part of Trotmania CHRYSTALIZE, the sequel to the game. Right now, Magic / The Living Tombstone feat. Lauren G. and Mony Mony / Billy Idol are both in the works. In addition, if Gangnam Style gets a proper Ponification sometime soon (and I mean more than the chorus), it too may be added.
