Twelve Days of FFRmas 2012 – Day 9
We over here at FFR would like to take a moment to solemnly apologize for our actions. You see, at the onset of our journey, we held every single intention of delivering unto you twelve fantastic new songs for you to enjoy, but it appears that along the way we forgot one minor detail that in the end has proven to be our downfall. I can quite vividly recall a moment that occurred a couple of weeks ago in which bmah angrily slammed his fists down onto the FFR boardroom table, spilling his yoghurt everywhere, and screaming at the top of his lungs, “The only thing that’s gonna keep us from releasing these songs is the end of the world!” Well thanks a lot bmah, you apocalypse-causing jerk. Either way, now that the doomsday is upon us, we figured that the best way to simultaneously celebrate and lament our impending demise is to release not only one, but two new files! Now, I know what you’re thinking: “Didn’t you guys say that we were only getting one release a day?” and the answer to your question is an emphatic no, we never said that. Ever. Go back and check the records if you feel so inclined.
Those of you who were active on the forums when bob bob’s chart for The earth blew up was released back near the start of the year may remember the heated debate that it engendered. Some players proclaimed that it was an incredible piece of art that deserved every last nuance of the perfect score that one judge had bestowed it, while others spat on it and attested that they happily agree to placing their heads into a filthy public toilet and remaining there for several days if it meant that they’d never have to play through the file ever again. Since he had gone through the effort of bringing us his own take on this noizecore selection, it would appear that Choofers had sided with the latter of the two factions. Although relatively similar in terms of difficulty with its predecessor, version two features a slightly longer cut of the song itself as well as a completely different conceptualization of its various bleep and bloops. If you wish to give this file a try, then you’ll have to achieve a score that has less twelve goods, twenty-one averages, twenty misses and twelve boos (or, in simpler terms, better than 12-21-20-12) on The earth blew up v1.
Both 0 and t+pazolite are no strangers to the realm of difficult files. World End’s Yama Xanadu, a hardcore remix of Shikieiki Yamaxanadu’s theme from Touhou Kaeitzuka ~ Phantasmagoria of Flower View, achieved infamy in the western rhythm gaming community thanks in part to Malice’s Stepmania chart. Even by looking at the file statistics alone, it definitely goes without saying that 0′s rendition of this fervid piece is nothing to scoff at: clocking in at nearly 7 minutes and possessing 4501 arrows, this file boasts a higher note count than all of its publically released predecessors and falls short of the present record holder Vertex Beta vROFL’s total by a hundred and fifteen notes. If you thought that your fingers were in pain after yesterday’s marathon release, then you’re probably going to want to keep an ambulance at the ready for this one. If you want to try your hand at this modern masterpiece then you’re going to have to find the profile relevant to this day and ask a very important question: “End of the world?”
Today is the day in which we as a species are going to be meeting our inescapable doom…or are we? It’s always good to reassure yourself of the most important things, especially when it comes to something as substantial as the end of the world. Go ahead and interrogate the guy – I’m sure that he’s around here somewhere.
