  2. I doubt I'll be opening up the limitations for this album, but as I mentioned in the OP, I plan on doing a sequel album after this one that's specifically battle themes, so that one (assuming you're talking about "Quicksand", which was Thanalan 1.0 battle theme and now is Sohm Al Hard) would be perfect for that. I'll definitely let you know when that one gets started.
  3. The only limitation I've baked into this album is what sources are on offer. Besides that, you can do whatever you want. Knock yourself out!
  4. Back when I was privately floating the idea of this album, before I'd even figured out what tracks I was gonna offer as sources, OA was like "gimme Ishgard" and basically didn't give me a choice in the matter, lol
  5. I drafted this post elsewhere before it got moved to the appropriate spot, so replying to bump it so everyone will see it now that it's public!
  6. Wow, this is incredible! Your husband did a great job with the video too, but I had to just listen to it with the video in another tab. Couldn't really watch much of it... I can't handle clips from this show right now, lol
  7. After several of my friends got me into Final Fantasy XIV, I fell in love with the game so hard that I've been playing pretty regularly for a year and a half straight now. The game has an incredible soundtrack, with over 400 songs, and I wanted to see an OCR album for it. Of course, 400+ songs is insane, to the point where this game has a legit Guinness World Record for the most original music in a video game. With that much music, and since XIV isn't the cultural touchstone something like VI or VII is (WHICH IS A TRAVESTY), I couldn't guarantee I'd be able to get enough interest in this for even the standard four-disc type OCR album. So instead we're going for a smaller, targeted idea here. The concept is simple: an album specifically for the area themes of the game. This includes city-states, towns, villages, the various zones you travel through, etc. I'm hoping to direct a sequel album in the future centered on battle/dungeon/boss/primal/raid/PVP themes, but let's see how this one does first. If you're interested, please look through the list of 47 potential sources below (cut down from my original list of 120, lol), complete with YouTube links, and if anything jumps out at you and you'd like to remix it for the project, let me know! Everything on a single line uses the same basic source for several in-game remixes, so I've listed them together, and you'd basically be claiming that one "melody" for a single remix, so to speak, rather than three or four different songs. If you're familiar with the XIV soundtrack and actually want to remix a source not in this list, and it's an area theme like the rest, then also let me know. I would like to see this released within a year, but I do not currently have any specific deadlines in mind otherwise. I'll decide that down the line, once I see how many people are interested in the project.

  8. Super MAGFest 2018

    It was much fun seeing everyone I was able to see! Of course, that number was significantly lower than previous years, simply because of the hotel situation making everyone a lot more scattered.
  9. OverClocked ReTreat

    Definitely interested. I had a similar idea with renting places on the beaches of the NC Outer Banks, but those would be 3-5 room beachside cottages, and so getting more than 10-15 people together would require renting multiple cottages. This might work better.
  10. I guess I'll have to make a MusicBrainz account for myself later? Neither of those links work unless I log in. That said, one thing I did have time to look at and noticed an issue with were the release tracks for the album. You've got them tied to individual OCR mixpost numbers, but now that it's not April 1st anymore, those mixposts were wiped from the front page, and have since been replaced with real mixposts using the same numbers (the first of which is actually Jorito's second track on this album), so you'll want to fix the numbers there too.
  11. That would be because Marlon only sung the lyrical parts in the Sonic Adventure 1 and 2 "Unknown from M.E." songs. The lyrics in this track come from the rapping in the Sonic Adventure 1 version, which Marlon did not do. See https://musicbrainz.org/recording/85f77fe2-2790-4791-898c-d51178bc916b. The internet does not seem to agree whether his name is Dred Foxx or Dread Foxx though.
  12. Really happy to see this finally released! Hope everyone enjoys it!
  13. Interview with Liontamer on all things OC ReMix

    Kent, my man! Thanks for linking that; I totally forgot I asked you to pop over here and do that.
  14. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

    I've activated every single Sheikah Tower, and have gotten to every single town located near each of the Divine Beasts, but I have yet to even officially start the quests to get to the beasts. I'm having too much fun saying "screw the story" and just exploring. I also really appreciate handheld mode because I'm able to bring my Switch to work and just save scumm the Lurelin village gambling game for mad cash while I'm busy coding.
  15. Nintendo Switch

    I got the chance to play the Switch last Friday. Here's an absolutely gigantic FB post with my impressions on everything I played.
