So just wanted to say, with all the snow many have been experiencing, especially what we are facing in Dallas, Texas, am I the only one that thinks of the snow theme from Merlin Racing when I step out into the snow?

Snow theme I'm talking about I have bookmarked in this video. The snow music and themes are my favorite part of Merlin Racing.

That player is pretty good. I prefer the space level & music though. For winter themes, I always think of harvest moon on SNES:

So bit of a mellow mood song. What inspired you about this song and winter?

I think for Merlin Racing the winter music has the bell sounds, a bit of a festive Christmasy sounding piece. I guess snow is so infrequent for me that snow, despite the chaos it seems to cause, is a beautiful thing.

In that game you have to maintain a farm throughout the four seasons. This is the song that plays in winter, when everything is covered with snow, the crops are dead, the trees are bare and the townfolk are in their houses. You find yourself walking alone through the dark forest when the sun is going down, each footstep in the snow making that distinctive sound. And in the background that music is playing.

When I go out in winter and there is snow, the streets are empty, the days are short, and the trees are black... It's just the same feeling, and it brings up that music in me.

Well for that it is some great mood music.

Anyone else have any winter themed moment in video games you like? I was mentioning something Nuon, but we can branch out.

OH! Cannon Fodder (Atari Jaguar). In that one there is sort of echo as sound carries differently over snow and ice. Every sound made has it. And naturally any quick moments result in your character slipping.

    they did not winterize any of the plants and they froze
  • The Helper The Helper:
    it is not that power consumption went up it was available capacity went down with power plants freezing
  • Varine Varine:
    What a fucking disaster. Are all of the Texas people okay? I see TH is, are we the only two?
  • Varine Varine:
    How have the other states held up? I just got power back so I have no idea what's going on, we didn't get warning
  • Varine Varine:
    Why the fuck didn't they fix this ten years ago when it happened?
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I'm in it with you and TH as well. My power has been in and out, and I have a ruptured pipe that I need to fix, shouldn't be too bad to fix myself.
  • Varine Varine:
    I hope you're staying warm! Apparently the supply is coming up so hopefully we can get back to normal power soon, mine has been on for six hours now.
  • M Mulciberxp:
    My power has been off most of the last 2 days. We had a generator installed 3 years ago though, so we're staying warm. Water is another issue...
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Where I live has a pool so we are using that to get water to flush the toilets. We have enough bottled water to drink and brush teeth and stuff but it has been a few days and no shower though....
  • Varine Varine:
    I had some water in gallon jugs, and got our water back on yesterday. We don't seem to have any leaks, but I haven't crawled down there to look yet.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    still no water I cannot remember when I last showered now I know how they felt in the old west lol
  • Varine Varine:
    My poor plants are happy, they aren
  • Varine Varine:
    aren't used to going this long without water or lights or normal heat. I think a couple of them froze, but they look like they'll make it
  • Varine Varine:
    Well one of them is pretty rough but I think it was sick to begin with, that one always had some problems.

    That is such a Texas thing to say lol
  • midnight8 midnight8:
    a positive could come out of this. So many people trapped at home could put a dent in the covid numbers in Texas
  • Varine Varine:
    That dude, Tom Boyd, is really upset about the backlash from his "it's your fault you're freezing" thing because he claims he resigned before saying it, so it wasn't like he said it in his official capacity or anything.
  • jonas jonas:
    Almost as if he was saying "screw you guys, I'm going home"
  • Varine Varine:
    I'm fairly new here still but that seems to be the analogous message by several of our politicians.
