Once of my earlier projects with the new writing set-up. Inspired in great part by my gaming experiences. It's got a sort of melancholy feel that is also a bit jovial in nature. I like to think of it as laughing at the hardships that life throws at you.

Hope you like it, let me know what you think!


Killingyoutwice hit the nail on the head and smashed it into the wood with his/her review!
The organs are a little under-powered and not used to their full potential, but while the rest of the track diminishes that defect overall, everything else fits together perfectly and gives off that ambient feel of being NO WHERE but in Gamer's Land.

With that said, you can expect me to be looking forward to your next piece! Keep at it, and bring forth the awesomeness that we deem Video Gamer's Greatness!!!!!!!!!!

10/10 5/5!

Thank you so much for the review! :) I hope to keep some more coming!

I really enjoyed everything about the song. It definitely gives off a feel of extreme work or being "in the zone". I especially like how the drums kind of serve as a backbone for the entire song thematically. They give off a sense of both sporadic and controlled at the same time further emphasizing the "in the zone" mentality where your brain fires off in all sorts of directions with trains full of awesome leading the way.

My only small gripe with the track is that the organ wasn't utilized as much as it could have been. Organs are normally used to convey a sense of grandeur or a size of god-like proportions. The grandeur doesn't really come across because the organ is mixed with other sounds. My advice would be to have a part where the organ is on it's own, and have the organ be in a high key to signify the coming of an epiphany eventually leading to the zone. Aside from that, this song kicks ass.

Thanks for another review! It's things like this that keep me going at times (knowing that at least some people think that my stuff is kick-ass is pretty sweet).

Yes, the organ actually was a bit of an inspired idea that happened as I was writing, I didn't originally intend to use it. I'm sure the mixing has a lot to do with how it comes across, but you're right in that it could have been accented more. Thanks again for the feedback, I really do appreciate it!

yes it does inspire somewhat... and as far as laughing at the hardships of life.. thats some good advice, thats really all you can do about it...

Like they say, if you don't laugh, you end up sobbing in the corner with a bottle. No one wants that. Thanks for the review!
