Who the heck is Sexy Candy Panda, that Kill the Noise simfile is AMAZING!!!! Very likely my favorite Halloween simfile ever WOW AMAZING song, synching, and video was just perfect, although the BPM of the intro is questionable but I guess it leads into the speed-up soon after, I'm just floored, I haven't played the Christmas sims yet (another Christmas in Tokyo, why is that song popular?).

Played a couple of these on pad before a slight headache set in. Noted the change of banners for Boom Boom Scream in coincidence with the new pack - nice touch on that one. The only two I played Holy Night and Jingle Bells - apologies to everyone who isn't #Infinity. Liked Jingle Bells a bit better, but I found the creativity in the first half of Holy Night charming too. I thought Holy Night might have been a bit overstepped in the chorus, but I am finding it less convenient to do more rhythmic patterns with my sneakers whose treads are completely worn out. And a headache was coming on. So I'm not sure about that comment. Really good song choices there - I like the old school feel of Jingle Bells. And both were quite fun.

I noticed some really nice graphics in this pack too. Looking forward to playing the rest :)

I unfortunately didn't get the file done by "Macho na si Santa" done in time - I realized it required way more tinkering than I had time for. Also, I still haven't figured out whether "Macho na si Santa" is the artist, or "Pasko ni Mr. Suave": see the album cover here. http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B000BP5SPG?is=l "Macho na si Santa" (by Masculados) is the first track, but nothing in the album notes or anywhere else indicates which of these two phrases in quotes they were designating as the album artist, if either. (The album almost entirely consists of clever interpolations of popular music with Christmas songs...)

I played a few on pad today.

BOOM BOOM SCREAM: I LOVED this song, how was I not aware of Halloween eurobeat? Nice patterns, could've used a few more complex crossovers/spins but it's fun nonetheless.

BOOM BOOM SCREAM (PARADRIVE VERSION): My fave file in the pack so far, that is one of the best-stepped euro riffs ever, I'm a sucker for 16ths in my riffs. The jumps were great too.

Courage the Cowardly Dog: OMG this song takes me back. Nice use of 16ths, could use a few more crossovers, but that's just my opinion.

Grim Grinning Ghosts: Wow hellrazor, this is probably your best file I've played from you.... although I've only played two of them, this and your file from Clubbing :P Like Courage, this song brings back memories, and the jumps were well-executed.

Holy Night: Italo-disco :D Some of the 16ths felt a little weird for a song this easygoing, if I were stepping it I would've stripped out the 16ths and made a more easygoing 7-footer. But nonetheless it was fun.

Jingle Bells: OH YES one of my fave Super Euro X'mas songs. I felt like it could've followed the song during the verse a little better, but again that's my opinion, it was still fun the way it was. I'm gonna have to step this one eventually.

Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites: Definitely one of my faves this time around, the background video was quite a nice addition. Also.... dem BPM gimmicks.

You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch: Good song choice, I liked the streams during the 12th snare drums, and the stops during the spoken word sections are tricky :3 Could throw off a PFC pretty easily.... MWAHAHAHA

Gonna play the rest later tonight or tomorrow, very nice work everyone.

Edit: More reviews:

Electronic Or Treat: WHOA, what a tricky chart, I'd expect nothing less from Tellyjandro :D Did you make that BG video? Nice use of the Pop'n character and old-skool cartoon footage.

goldenslaughter (Tishi's VW2 edit) / Whoever stepped this definitely knew what they were doing, excellent use of crossovers. I thought the song had ended and stepped off the pad, then it started back again :P I'm guessing that Telperion did this chart.

Halloween: YES! FINALLY! SPINS! Nice use of crossovers and slowdowns. The girl in the background reminds me a bit of a recurring character who appears in a few of my graphics and TaroNuke's comics.

Moses VS Santa Claus: Ah yes, I remember this song. This is how hip-hop/rap should be stepped, with 24ths and slowdowns during verses. Nice work.

SPIRIT of the NIGHT: More eurobeat :D Nice use of crossovers and streams. I've stepped a Daniel song (Frontal Impact) back in Summer Contest 2012 on ZIv, I might show it to you sometime.

Trick or Treat!: SATANIC PIKACHU CHOIR!!!! Expert was well done, fun with the gallops and synchronized crossovers, very symmetrical file. Challenge.... a 10-footer that draws it's difficulty from crossovers..... YEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAH

Just a few more left to play! Apologies to whoever's I didn't play yet.

Oh my God, Aaron stepped KTN. I feel the dire need to crack open my SM just to play that one song!

I'd be interested in joining in on a chat review. Not sure how many files I'm going to end up making for the 2012 pack, but I'm down to at least play something new.
