Make dat drum speed up, then have a second of silence or a synth with a volume envelope making it start at nothing and go up, and then hit it with BASS. That prolly doesn't help much, but that's what I would do. I suck though, so don't listen to my ramblings.
I've heard of Garage band, things sound pretty awesome with it too.
And have a soundcloud been working my odd video game style with things. You can check out a lot of them here. I use FL Studio,Reason 5 gonna upgrade to 6, Cubase and a lot of other things to just make this stuff lol again though it's very video game like in areas.
