Lots of news from the YT Live-Stream!
A few days ago, I held the latest Youtube Live-Stream News/Q&A event. In case you
missed it, here are the 3 major bullet points from the big news revealed:

1. Side-Quests Volume 1: An album with all-new songs!

A new album is on the horizon: Side-Quests Vol. 1 is the first in a series of albums
featuring 10 all new songs that were chosen in a random Patreon request list drawing.
These songs were chosen several months ago and I'm now complete with all of them!

One of these songs, Saturos, was already completed last year, so the version on this
album is just a 2017 remaster.

The album will be made available publically, for free, on April the 15th. However, if you
become a Patron on Patreon (for any amount, even as little as $1 once a month), the
album is available now!

2. Discord

We now have a GaMetal Discord server and all are welcome to join! Here's the server
. Make sure you read up on the welcome post upon entering. :)

3. Atmacoustics (The acoustic short/loop channel)

I've been talking about wanting to get this going for some time, and it's now come to
fruition: the acoustic short/loop channel, Atmacoustics! One of my higher-tier Patreon
rewards is an acoustic short request each month. I've had this reward since the beginning
of my Patreon campaign, and I've ended up with an enormous stock-pile of acoustic shorts
as a result.

This is my way of getting some extra use out of these shorts/loops and sharing them with
everybody else. This channel was made to be extremely simple, so the loops are set to
either a gameplay/box art picture or fan art, with download links in the description. In the
future, the channel will also feature some full-acoustic songs as well. If you're a fan of my
acoustic shorts, give the channel a look and subscribe! I have a ton of these shorts
lying around so there should be uploads atleast every 2-3 days.

Those were the 3 major points of interest for the news revealed in the stream. I then went
on to answer tons of questions like usual, so if missed the stream and want to hear all
that you can view the archived version here. Thanks to all who showed up and I hope
you're as excited about all this news as I am!

Sonic Fan Medley: Genesis Edition is coming!
Did you make it to the live stream the other day? If not, feel free to check out the
archive version, I made a lot of cool announcements and answered a lot of great questions.
Obviously I don't expect you to listen to the whole 2.5 hours xD but there's some neat
stuff in there.

One thing I revelead is the upcoming sequel (prequel?) to 2014's Sonic Fan Medley.
When the songs for that medley were chosen, hardly any of the classic Sonic games
were featured (depending on your definition of Classic Sonic, that might only be one:
Spring Yard Zone). This time around we're going to do a Genesis Sonic Medley.

Also, since the first Sonic Fan Medley is only medley I've done with the word 'Fan' in
the title, I've decided to get everybody involved again with a few different ways to enter
via Youtube, Twitter, and Patreon.

Here are the eligible games:
Sonic the Hedgehog
Sonic 2
Sonic 3 / Sonic 3 & Knuckles
Sonic Spinball
Dr Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine
Sonic 3D Blast
Sonic CD (I realize this was actually a Sega CD game, but I'll allow it due to it's popularity)

To enter a song:
Youtube: Comment on the Youtube entry video with your entry
Twitter: Tweet #SonicFanMedley2 with your entry
Patreon: Comment on the SFM2 post with your entry

One song per comment/tweet.

The 3 mostly highly submitted songs from Sonic 1, three from Sonic 2, three from Sonic
3 / & Knuckles, and three from the non-trilogy titles will be in the medley. Some extras
chosen by me might also make an appearance.

Entry period ends on December 8th, so get those entries in. Good luck!

Here's the Youtube Entry Video:
