  1. OCR03342 - Kirby's Adventure 'Silver and Gold'

    A perfectly pleasant tune. Without source familiarity it doesn't really stick with me though. It's a fine mix, but I prefer the feeling evoked by OCR#2753
  2. Dracula's secretaries sound hot, but that's ok, there's no need to schedule me a meeting, really... "I'm sorry, but Dracula's too busy to kill you right now. Please take a number and have a seat in the adjacent waiting room." <music plays>
  3. OCR03338 - Chrono Trigger 'Punk Hairdo Kid'

    Great writeup for a great mix. I'm only now coming to appreciate how much knowing the context of a song's submission really adds to its enjoyment, especially as in cases like this, where it represents a gestalt fusion of nostalgia, sentiment, and passion. Funky, fresh, satisfyingly slick but also still 'grainy' (dat lo-fi goodness).
  4. OCR03322 - Ace Combat Zero 'Guinevere'

    Captures that epic dogfight feel of the AC series nicely.
  5. OCR03318 - Kirby Air Ride 'Frozen Fantasie'

    It's too pared down to capture the wintry feeling of the level, or the dynamism of sliding along icy paths. But it's still a very good piano piece, without feeling especially Kirby'ish.
  6. NOTICE: Forums upgraded to IPS 4.1.X (report issues)

    I don't think I see tags anymore for remixes....did those disappear? Or have they been removed for some reason? I thought it was a really handy way of finding similar mixes.
  7. Wish this had a better ending - it feels abrupt! I could go on listening to it for at least two more minutes Smooth, relaxing, warm breezes, casual strolls and for-the-fun-of-it drives.
  8. Did you beat the bad guys? Check. Get the girl? Check. Standing by the water, watching the sunset over the City Skyline? Check. Ok, play this song.
  9. OCR03309 - Earthworm Jim 2 'Glow Worm Jim'

    I've been listening to this since it's original release more than ten years ago. Absolutely one of my favorite songs. You can just strut down the street to this, it lifts your mood right up!
  10. OCR03307 - Double Dragon III 'Trouble in Japan'

    I swear I hear the Leisure Suit Larry theme...at the 1m 47s mark, just for an instant (listen here)! Maybe it's just me, or just a common set of notes to the genre? Anyway, very chill and jazzy, definitely my kind of sound.
  11. I can imagine gamer couples slow dancing to this
  12. Always glad these old mixes are still up. Might sound simplistic to our ears, but they still have their place, both as markers of how actually good they were (for the time), and how contributions have come since then.
  13. OCR03297 - Mega Man 3 'The Jazzassin'

    True Jazz Ass Playing.
  14. Didn't think it possible to relax to this kind of shreddage, but it turns out - youcan, and it is blissful.
