Lol tom!

Actually i have done the same. If I need to learn some music, I frequently set it playing in the backgrtound of a puzle or fast action game, in fact in my audio review of bg hearts, you can here midis of The sorcerer in the background which i was doing a production of at the time so needed to be familiar with.


I've also occasionally used music for less interesting bits of a game, ---- for instance the long runs of trading in smugglers 3 are much more dramatic with the music from Starwars pumping away in the background ;D.

One of my stranger habbits has been playing puzle or fast action games while listening to books on tape, indeed I first read a good bit of the wheel of time series while trying to play puzle bobble!

the weerd thing is, occasionally my game skills actually improve! I remember having a horrible time with the 1st level of the first castle in Mega man 4, ---- until! I started listening to Lord of the rings!

I'm not sure if this is because one of Mega man's weapons in the game is the ring boomerang, ---- one ring boomerang to rule them all? ---- but either way, I stormed through the rest of the game fairly quickly once I had frodo and gandalf on my side ;d.

I've not really found many audio games I'd want to do this with though, just for the problem of listening to two voices at once through your ears.

Beware the Grue!

Dark.

Subject: [Audyssey] A New Way to Play Games


Hi,

Tonight I just discovered a new way to play games. One that, well,
rocks.  Kind of combinds two hobbies in one you might say.

Earlier this evening I was testing some new changes in Mysteries of
the Ancients beta 17 when I frankly got sick and tired of hearing the
same music being looped over and over. So I wwent into the program
settings turned off the background music, and then fired up Windows
Media Player with an mp3 playlist of various 80's and 90's rock hits.

So here I am running through the tomb blasting skeletons apart,
slottering centaurs, and making short work of the harpies while bands
like Metallica is cranking Creeping Death, AC-DC is playing Shoot to
Thrill, or the Cranberries are singing Zomby in the background. It
adds a totally new dimmention to the game play with alternative rock
music blaring in your headphones while you are kicking serious butt.
It is frickin' great. If you would like it I'd be happy to upload a
trailer or something of me playing with music in the background.

I don't know it seams to give me more energy. It is like the music
gets me really juiced up and in a mood to beat the crap out of
something or engage in some wild fighting. As Pat Bennatar would say,
"all fired up." I've got to try this approach in Shades of Doom or
similar action filled game. I think it rocks.

Cheers!
