Cipher_Peon;4679323 said:Never heard of Cynic. How would you describe them?
Der_Lex;4679327 said:Avant-garde/progressive metal. You won't like them.
Cipher_Peon;4679329 said:Yeah, when you said that you were excited that pretty much deflated any excitement I would have had for them

Blasteroids;4679358 said:Personally I would be more willing to donate to a project that already has legitimate artists which can be acquired with fixed targets. For example, if you said that it would cost $2k to get the rights to release Cupids Dead by Extreme (I'm just picking one I saw in USL) then I would donate $x if I can see how well the donations are doing to hit the target. Then the profit after released could then go towards a different artist, again with a visible target level.
Blasteroids;4679358 said:I'll be honest. I loved the idea until I saw what you are offering as prizes. Seriously, "prizes"? That actually puts me off from DONATING for the greater good. This should not be a raffle with "prizes" but should be a professional crowd-sourcing exercise.
MagicMurderBag7;4679348 said:I think you owe ATF some money.
The problem with saying the person who donates $1k will get to choose an artist becomes apparent when they then demand you go after Pink Floyd or Led Zepplin. Even though you said that is not the aim, and we all know it is not going to happen, it will cause issues with the donor and just waste everyone's time.

Blasteroids;4679358 said:Have 3-4 of these songs at one time. Everyone who donates votes once (or x times, depending on size of donation) and the song with the most votes is chased. Majority of donations wins, and hopefully the majority of the players purchase it and the extra revenue helps to reduce the cost of the next crowd-sourced track.
queuemark;4679361 said:Irregardtheless, see if you can finagle some Victory Records Taking Back Sunday (Tell All Your Friends) and Thursday (Full Collapse). I would eagerly kick in a lot for those.
ThatAuthoringGroup;4679307 said:We're going to be bringing multiple tracks from their Carbon Based Anatomy album to RBN here in the near future.
Zemanator;4679369 said:if you want anything from victory, please go talk to Rhythm Authors. victory has an active partnership with them (they recently uploaded 8 songs into playtesting), and we do not intend to, or ever plan, ect to go after anybody already involved with another authoring group.
jibjqrkl;4679368 said:so let me get this one right, what you are trying to say is that for example:2 tracks, both tracks being completely different genresi donate $200 (vote) for track A10 people donate $250 total (25 each) for track Btrack B gets chased because it has more votes, making my money go to track B which i don't even want in the game?if anything, that will make me not donate ever
FairwoodStudios;4679379 said:Depends how they set it all up. If they do a kickstarter per song, then no, that won't happen. If they do a kickstarter per batch, then you'd be contributing to the batch as a whole
queuemark;4679378 said:Oh yeah, I forgot. Too bad, it sounds like they (Victory) only view it as a marketing tool.
Bront20;4679389 said:Questions (Some of which I probably still know the answer too, but would rather ask)1) This is still coming to us though RBN? Or will HMX being putting these songs out as "official" DLC for all 3 consoles? I assume if they are you're getting some kind of exemption to push them though?2) If these songs are coming though RBN, will these artists get priority to getting ported over to the PS3? (Feel free to mention throwing the Wii a bone as well)3) Will these come in actual 3 packs (Discount and all)?
