  • Two months without looking at the B25 Production Thread. I can handle this, I can handle this...

      I feel your pain. The film usually releases here in Australia at least 2 weeks later, so it's quite difficult. I find avoiding the production thread isn't enough - you may have to avoid the entire Bond 25 & Beyond section. On the lead up to SP, I even had some moron private messaging spoilers to me, and when I got up him, he tried to justify it.

      Will take the advice into account. And awful to hear about the idiot who did that to you. I can't even imagine what silly excuse he gave you. I trust such behavior would be grounds for mod action.

      The Brosnosaurus is a sexist, mysoginist Dinosaur. It is mostly home in areas like the french Riviera or cuban beaches.
      It feeds mostly on vodka martinis and delectado cigars. The male Brosnosaurus can have an almost unlimited number of females to mate throughout the year.

    Does this trigger your inner NFS fan? :D

    • mattjoes
      mattjoes
      Yes, it does! Rom Di Prisco is part of what makes those early games great, along with Saki Kaskas. A very elegant sound.

      Looking at the photo of the car I'm reminded of an album I put together about ten years ago, with drawings I made of sports cars from NFS and other sources.
    • ClarkDevlin
      ClarkDevlin
      Too right, mattjoes! Too right! The pre-Underground NFS games had very elegant sounds to name whether they were progressive rock or electronic techno as well as others like two of the aforementioned composers have contributed onto. Rom Di Prisco is an unsurpassed king at what he does. If I'm honest, he's the reason '007 Racing' is playable for me to begin with. Alistair Hirst also provided some great tracks, and so did Jeff Dyck. One of my all time favourite tracks from the entirety of the NFS games is "Showcase" by Hirst from the first game, and my all time favourite is "Dr. Know" (you think that was a play on 'Dr. No' or something?) by Rom Di Prisco. Christ! I miss the old days...

      I've always loved the photograph above as it definitely contains classic NFS humour... A sportscar competing with a jet. Where are those kinds of greatness when you require them? :D
    • mattjoes
      mattjoes
      I haven't played 007 Racing. Didn't even know Rom Di Prisco did the music!

      Some of my favorite themes from the games are Halling It (Robert Ridihalgh, NFS2), Main Menu (Rom Di Prisco, NFS2), Romulus 3 (Rom Di Prisco, NFS3), Triton (Rom Di Prisco, NFS3), Callista (Saki Kaskas, NFS4).

      That Showcase theme is damn cool.
    • mattjoes
      mattjoes
      And Cygnus Rift by Di Prisco from NFS4. Mustn't forget that.
    • ClarkDevlin
      ClarkDevlin
      All of those are absolutely great! Can't argue with that list!

      Here's a sample from '007 Racing' by Rom Di Prisco:

    • mattjoes
      mattjoes
      Cool! Combine great things (Di Prisco's talent and James Bond music) and great things will happen. Went ahead and listened to a few others. Love the horns in Track 3.
    • mattjoes
      mattjoes
      Menu is pretty great too.
    • ClarkDevlin
      ClarkDevlin
      I tell you, '007 Racing' is only worth a shot if you love the Bond cars and NFS type music. It's a crying shame though that an inferior team of developers handled it when Eden Studios (who also developed 'Test Drive Unlimited 2') and EA Canada could've delivered a stellar job on the case as witnessed in the later three installments in the franchise.

      And of course, if I can add one more thing regarding the NFS tracks... Saki Kaskas' "Psychonaught" is bloody awesome, too!
    • mattjoes
      mattjoes
      Love Psychonaut. It was a shame to hear of Kaskas' passing; the guy was great.
    • ClarkDevlin
      ClarkDevlin
      Agreed. I gotta admit, I didn't know of his passing until recently when I was looking up at the current status of these composers. A crying shame.
