Title: Dead World of Light or whatever :D
Post by: LymphoCite_T on November 08, 2011, 02:09:14 pm
The forum is almost dead,  Rob spams on twitter, but nobody cares...
is zombiefication even of MaSu fans complete? nobody deviates, nobody makes games about MaSu anymore...
is there really no more weird shit to make about MaSu?
and ... why is band so quiet? in Overworld times, they maed bionic commando remixes, one of them is totally forgotten (area 8 ). the Assembly video is cool, but do people spread the word?
Nobody needs tabs...
What happened to all of you, guys?  :-\

----
I think there are some ppl who want to support the band, but teh band doesn't need help, it seems.
Now, go listen arcade and think something up. any ideas?

Uh... hi? I check in everyday.  ;D

I believe there isn't much to talk about atm. We can eternally share our opinion about a certain song or spam requests, but that isn't really interesting, right?

I agree with you it would be nice if the band members frequented more and talked with us, but I suppose they've got better things to do. Dunno!

Just hibernating 'til Gravity Run or a new album drops.

Yeah, I check in more than once a day. If ever I'm bored on the internet, I just impulsively click the MaSu Forum bookmark I have up there...
I post regularly on the User Releases thing, but I suppose we'll just have to wait for Gravity Run OST to drop and for details about the 2012 album to be released/leaked.
I occasionally pop onto my twitter app on my iPod, so I see @Starbert (or his new nickname @Strasjastjrormaorjmtojrm) posting stuff every now and then. I don't think the forums are dead, it's just the forumites have run out of stuff to talk about.

Joł, Limfocycie. I'm still here. And I am just a lurker. You probably don't even remember me because that's the effect of lurking.

I don't really have much to write. I have accounts on two other active internet communities. One related to a Japanese shoot-em-up Touhou, another to the computer role-playing game, Gothic. I regularly visit tvtropes, which is a great site for killing time. There is way too much shit on the net for me to keep up. And also I rarely comment. Usually I only say outrageously stupid things that make people ignore me, laugh at me or get mad at me, because, well... I don't know. Having the dumb all the time, I guess. I will share a secret with you now: I am IggMaN's spiritual mentor.

Haha, not really. :P I miss that dude. We all get nostalgic at times. I once ranted about missing the old MaSu, but I watched the Winland 2010 Tour Diary and instantly liked the "new" MaSu.

But yeah. At least I can say for myself that I am as active as ever. 8)
Which means... almost inactive.

Don't get sad, bro. We're here.

Funny how this thread went from dead forums to group masturbation. And it's still the first page.

That's a risk you take when you post your topic in the Random forum.

Anyway, shouldn't this thread's topic be more like "Dead World of Light"? I mean, the forum is using a light skin.

[spoiler]And Dark City is Lulea - it is not dead.[/spoiler]

It just bugs me.

Oh, here comes Page 2.

i'm lurking, too, but there is other thing that bothers me...

I though of band promotion, and noticed band members can't do much to promote MaSu. CoB and Ensiferum fans seem to be pretty resistant against the word... Gravity Run? I know MaSu soundtrack gives +300% quality to one's game, but... Do you think it's going to be another Portal? Deus Ex? or even JnG? if the answer is yes, this is gonna be awsum. but if no, MaSu stays underground (even though they get few facebook likes per day).

Maybe we should form 'creative groups' which will make some kind of stuff for MaSu...
Me and my friend wanted to make a freeware game like Tyrian, based on Simple DirectMedia Layer, and we'll probably tend to promote MaSu somehow (but when ppl hear my soundtrack, they'll probably think that my hearing is somehow bad, etc :P  ;D ).

Once upon a time there was freeware game called IJI. it was pretty cool, but an average player wanted cool graphics, so the game was rather programmer's piece of art than game for masses. It spread the word a little bit, but the maker was really shy about using trinity logo and AFAIK he didn't even mention that machinae supremacy is a band. so, like the LoL player could say, it was "fail ulti(mortal)"

Nowadays it's somehow impossible that MaSu makes soundtrack for one's game, if it's not commercially-oriented, but one can make a game with support of other forumers, what do you think?

and do you know how to promote band world-wide when having no money at all?

I meant check the forums at school, but whatever floats your boat d00d.
Title: Re: Dead World of Light or whatever :D
Post by: evilcandybag on November 09, 2011, 08:50:00 pm
IJI only had one MaSu song, and that was a cover, so you can hardly consider that as a promotion of the band.
Title: Re: Dead World of Light or whatever :D
Post by: gaijin on November 09, 2011, 10:45:53 pm
Also, if you haven't been paying attention, the guys are making a soundtrack for a game as we speak. And it's not exactly a high-profile-WEMUSTMAKESHITLOADSOFMONEY-game either. But yeah, whatever floats yer boat.
Title: Re: Dead World of Light or whatever :D
Post by: WilllemNL on November 09, 2011, 11:39:17 pm
I can't really think of a mainstream game that would fit MaSu's music anyway. That has nothing to do with the awesome music ofcourse, but the fact that mainstream games, meant for large crowds, often aren't the hyperactive run 'n guns or side scrolling shooters.

MaSu would be perfect for the sci-fi epic that's in my head that will never make it to the big screen...but if one day it does...

Hey I loved that game, actually that was how I discovered MaSu. I read the readme about the Hero cover (which I loved and heard before any other MaSu stuff) and I thought that was cool, didn't really know who they were yet though. Then I went to his site looking for more games (got Garden Gnome Carnage, Hero, Hero Core, and some others, btw on December 1st there's going to be a new game on his site Hyper Princess Pitch: http://www.remar.se/daniel/ and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QRJYFbJDkqs ) which has some ddr/stepmania files for stepmania which had a lot of MaSu files and also the original form of War Angel (the instrumental one). I immediately loved the music and then went to MaSu's site and got all the site releases and when EOTW came out I got DXM, RUE, Overworld, and EOTW cd's for my birthday.

a.k.a Panzerfaust
Man, IJI is kind of a big deal. It even has its TVTropes page, and it looks fun to play too, I should really give it a shot some day.
And the guy who made it likes Machinae Supremacy. He even put a link to the band's page on his own website. I wonder if he ever was a forumite on this forum.

hmm, am I here more often then the bandmembers?
Anyways, Rob is surely creating content (gravity run and new album) but random gametunes such as Bionic Commando may be more scarce now after I left the band since the game promoters were my contacts.
Rob might find more contacts in the gaming industry just by being awesome tho... ;)

Yeah, that's kinda obvious, right?!  :D

Anyway, I don't suppose Dezo will be returning to the band. He seemed quite upset by the 'sell your souls to the label company devil so we can tour with shitty emo bands'. If you're reading this Dezo, I hope I'm not spreading false information about you.  :P

On the other hand. One of my favourite bands, Coheed and Cambria, reunited with their old drummer after a couple of years. That's kinda cool. And hell, even Black Sabbath reunited!
