okay but can we just talk about ds’ remixes real quick?
i’m just gonna talk about them for a bit real quickly:
remix 1: a good start for ds’ remixes. while the pattern it follows is a little too set (glee club, built to scale, fan club, built to scale, fan club, glee club, fillbots+a tempo up, loop that a few times until it ends and goes back to normal speed), all ds remixes have that and personally i like it.
remix 2: this one’s pretty difficult, but it’s actually pretty fun despite that. it was the second remix i superbed (remix 5 was first), even though i’m not the best at it.
remix 3: honestly this one’s my least favorite but i have to admit, the music’s pretty good. i just really don’t like the crop stomp and the dazzles parts.
remix 4: it’s very fast and i like that. plus it has dj school, you can’t dislike a remix that has dj school.
remix 5: one of my favorites. the “here we go” in dog ninja’s kind of funny, it has a lot of games i like (ds frog hop, dog ninja and splashdown), and it’s pretty fun.
remix 6: my absolute favorite apart from the obvious favorites that everyone likes (remix 8 and 10). the lockstep-space soccer transitions are neat, the karate man parts are fun, the rockers parts are short enough that they don’t get annoying, and overall it’s a really good last pre-credits remix!
remix 7: big rock finish: the remix. all jokes aside, it’s also really good and fun. it also has some of my faves: ds frog hop, fan club, and gasp dj school. that’s it, it’s the end-all be-all, you can’t dislike a remix that has dj school (/j). all jokes aside though, it’s really fun and the big rock finish a extension’s good. the fact it has dj school does make it really good as well!
remix 8: okay this remix has many things going for it: it’s pretty fast and kind of hectic, it has good music, a good bunch of games (rhythm rally, dog ninja and lockstep, all in one remix? nice), and it’s just really fun. the freeze frame parts make me anxious for when i have to go for a perfect though-
remix 9: while it’s difficult, it’s also really fun. the space soccer cue-ins aren’t that hard to hear (esp if you’re like me and mainly focus on audio cues), the part where it goes between shoot-’em-up, karate man and splashdown’s pretty fun, oH YEAH IT HAS SPLASHDOWN. FOR NO REAL REASON. BUT I’M NOT COMPLAINING, I LIKE SPLASHDOWN. ,,, yesterday i was recording for my “playthrough” of the game and i missed one input in splashdown and it was a just ok and it hurt. but anyways good remix, 9/10. the moai doo-wop parts and the difficulty bring it down. i also really like the random built to scale appearance just suddenly-
remix 10: okay this is honestly starting to beat remix 10 fever as my favorite medley remix. it has really good music, it’s not too fast but not too slow either, even the parts for games i don’t like (i.e. crop stomp and love lab) are good! remix 8 does beat it as my favorite ds remix, but it’s not far behind.
personally my rating of ds’ remixes is probably as follows, from best to worst: 8, 10, 6, 5, 4, 7, 2, 9, 1, 3. remix 3′s my least favorite, 8′s my favorite, and 4 and 7 are just the awkward middle children (they both have dj school and tbh that def boosts them up at least a little-).
