Sakurai & Co. decided that Ken is going to be an Echo fighter in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – well after I removed him from the updated version of What is a Man. So I had to fix that again. So here you go: What is a Man 2018 [Masters Edit], a version with Ryu and Ken and some other smaller changes. Again there’s a normal and a voiceless version.
I tried at one point to include themes of other manly characters like Ike and Snake, but that proved to be too difficult for me – I guess the song is already crazy enough as it is. The Masters Edit is the definitive version. Definitely. For now.
I managed to pull it off after all, just in time for the spookiest time of the year! today I present you a Halloween Megamix: Halloween Mayhem 2018!
Some of you may still remember a similar thing I did 4 years ago, where I would make a medley of all the Halloween mixes I did so far. This is somewhat of an update, building upon the 2014 version – however, it only includes Halloween mixes which start with “Night of …” (also Mad Monster Mansion for an epic ending).
That means, this song references the following Halloween mixes:
And here’s the video as usual – I hope there aren’t any more embarrassing mistakes this time…
I really like how this one turned out. I was thinking I should make these Mayhem mixes every 4 years or so. Next time I could just add some more “Night of …” songs to it, although these songs would get pretty long then~
If you don’t have enough yet, be sure to check out my Halloween playlist which includes all of my Halloween (mega)mixes so far.
I hope that makes up a little bit for my long absence. I wish you all a…
Well, it’s been a while! I can’t remember ever making such a long break, I’m truly sorry…I had a lot of ideas in the meantime, but executing them turned out to be a problem – good thing Halloween came around to give me the motivation to finally finish another song! I hope I didn’t get too rusty during my downtime…
Today I present the result of our voting and this year’s Halloween Mix: Night of the Demon! As the name suggests, it’s basically a medley focusing on tunes related to demons – I included some of the songs you suggested during the voting period as well. There’s quite a few tunes in there, so here’s the list:
Memorial of the Fallen Ones (Credits) – Demon’s Crest
Akuma’s Theme – Super Street Fighter IV version
At Doom’s Gate – DOOM
Boss Battle – Shin Megami Tensei II
Battle Theme – Persona 2: Eternal Punishment
Demystify Feast – Touhou 7.5: Immaterial and Missing Power (I somehow got that mixed up with Missing Power at first – sorry about that!)
ASGORE – Undertale
For Akuma’s tune I tried to make it sound a bit more like the SSF IV version, although I found it really difficult to get the notes exactly right. In the end I listened to my version so many times that it just started to sound right – but it might sound a little off to you.
Can’t do without the video of course – note that at the time of upload (and shortly before the first comments arrived) I actually confused the Touhou Theme I used, so it says “Missing Power” instead of “Demystify Feast”. This is incredibly embarrassing, so please forgive me:
Normally I would upload the video around the 31st, but if I can manage to do what I planned, there might be another video by then – no promises though, although I would have some catching up to do…
Just to be on the safe side, let me wish you a Happy Halloween!
