  1. Sounds nice. Moving to Originals. The Post Your Game Remixes forum is for video game music arrangements only. Non-game arrangements should go in this forum.
  2. No, people willingly give their kids smartphones they pay $200 for because of carrier deals. Adults don't really even pay $1000 for smartphones for themselves. And the thing about DS and Gameboy is different because the DS and Gameboy were both portable systems, and that statement was just Nintendo hedging their bets on a risky, experimental system (2 screens, touch, etc.); i.e. if the DS failed to capture the market, they could fall back on the Gameboy line. The Switch is designed to be a home console successor that iterates on the Wii and the Wii U, not a 3DS successor.
  3. Well also, and I feel like people are really getting this wrong, Switch is not a "portable system" like 3DS. I mean yeah, they're touting the portability of it, but Switch is a home console that can also be made portable. It's not really meant to replace the Gameboy/DS line the way some people think it is. A lot of us are adult gamers and we keep thinking about the Switch as adult gamers; about the convenience of taking it on the commute, or to a party, or while we're traveling. But Nintendo's always done very well with a specific demographic: kids. The Switch is a pretty sleek $300 machine, and that's not really something to give to an 8 year old that she can take with her to a lot of places. A lot of times siblings have their own 3DSes or 2DSes too. Nintendo still has to satisfy that market with a portable-first system that's a bit more rugged and a bit more affordable. Am I wrong here? OCR parents, back me up: would you buy your younger kid a Switch and trust them to take it around everywhere with them? My guess is "no," but I don't have kids of my own.
  4. They can't tell you everything in a single press conference. I think the focus on the hardware and the games was good enough.
  5. One week per remix. Starting end of Jan/early Feb
  6. Waffling a bit on Switch but I did get a lot out of my WiiU. It's not going to take too much tonight to convince me to preorder.
  7. CORRECTION! The switch presentation is TONIGHT at 8PM PST/11PM EST. http://www.nintendo.com/switch/
  8. There's a presentation for the Switch tomorrow.
  9. Eino out, Dewey in.
  10. Got you now.
  11. Sixto's out due to some personal stuff. Need 4 people.
  12. Got you. Removed dupe StarPhoenix.
  13. I'm looking for some help in populating a Google Calendar with notable video game anniversaries for games that have remixes here on OC ReMix. This calendar is meant to be used in conjunction with zapier (an automation tool) that will help us automatically promote game pages on OCR's Discord server and possibly our social media accounts. Right now OCR doesn't track release dates of games in its database, so I can't ask djpretzel for that data. I need folks to help find release date data and create events on the Calendar in a specific format. I'd prefer to use release dates from the country of origin, so Japanese release dates for games from Japan, North American release dates for many western games, etc. To participate, you need a Google account (i.e. gmail address). The event should be created with a start time of 12:00PM on the day of the anniversary. Multiple events on the same day should be spaced by 15 minutes. The title of the event should be Nth Anniversary of Game. The description of the event should be a link to the game's page on OC ReMix. Here's a sample event. I think we can focus on 5x Year Anniversaries for now. Let me know if you'd like to help out and I'll give you access.
  14. You can post whatever you'd like as long as its not breaking any rules.
  15. OKAY now that MAGFest and the holidays are over, let's get this thing crackin! Here's who I have signed up already in my spreadsheet. It might be outdated, so if you're NOT participating anymore, please let me know.
