Just joined, hello!

Postby Golden Beast Studios » Mon Apr 20, 2009 5:39 am

Hi, I'm John D. Bell, President and lead designer for the indie game company Golden Beast Studios. I'm a big fan of new and old school gaming. I don't enter many forums, so I'm just going to do my top ten games to get the ball rolling.

1) Legend of Zelda, a link to the past
2) Metroid Prime 2 Echoes
3) Mega Man X5
4) Capcom vs. SNK 2 EO
5) Time Splitters 2
6) F-Zero GX
7) Super Ghouls and Ghosts
8) Contra III the Alien Wars
9) Plok!
10) Yoshi Touch & Go

There are plenty of other great games worth mentioning, choosing a top ten isn't easy! These games are the most influencial to me as a designer. I enjoy disscussing game theory, game balancing, and game history. I'm also a huge fan of game music! Check out the Golden Beast Studios site to play some of our ealier games!

Hate to ask what Plok is, but yeah, not familiar with it.

Welcome though, nice to have a designer on here :)

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone! I attached a screenshot of Plok for Darryl B Plok has some of the best game music I've ever heard. Unfortunately, on an emulator some of the midi music gets garbled (particularly the flea pit song). There's also some awesome tile work and animation in that game, but more importantley it's a lot of fun to play!

Here's a link to play some of my earlier games to anyone that's interested, they're free, I promise ;)

There's actually one other one not posted on there titled Zaiden the War Elelphant. If anyone wants to play it just let me know where you want me to send it

John,

Thanks, yeah, some video game music (ok, make that a LOT) can be pretty damn good indeed :)

Yeah that's always a shame, some stuff's hard to emulate.

If you enjoy game music, here's a link to garudoh's game music channel on youtube :)
