  1. OCR01990 - Final Fantasy VI 'Desertion'

    I'm with the opinion that the synth doesn't fit. At all, really. The guitar and drums are great, but the synth just ... spoils it.
  2. OCR00067 - Mega Man 2 "Flash Fire"

    I'm having issues where my in-car MP3 player (2013 Dodge Dart) will not play anything more than the first 10 seconds of this MP3 before switching to another song. I've tried downloading fresh copies and I've tried different media (SD micro based) but that doesn't fix it. This is the only mix that it happens to and it plays fine on Winamp, VCL, and other PC based MP3 players. That being said ... this (and frankly all of AE's work) consistently gets 5 stars from me on every roll through my playlists.
  3. SpaceEngine Remixes?

    Anyone want to tackle this one? Sounds challenging ... they have a nice selection ... http://en.spaceengine.org
  4. Opinion: Commercialism on a FREE site

    While I expected some fanboy resistance to my orignal post, I didn't quite expect the vitriol in the following remarks. http://ocremix.org/forums/showpost.php?p=943469&postcount=21 and http://ocremix.org/forums/showpost.php?p=943502&postcount=29 My goal was to start an intelligent conversation, and I tried to phrase my initial opinion as non-confrontational as possible and it was gracefully answered in several replies by many of the more respected members and, most thankfully, by DJP himself. I suppose that, if offered, and I had the skills and resources, that I would jump on this project without a second thought. I recognize that. But on the same token, after 10+ years (I'd lurked for about a year, downloading before registering), it was a bit of a shock and perhaps a knee-jerk fear reaction. Mainly because I'd honestly miss gathering the remixes if all future releases became commercialized. Either way, I can live without this 1% and still enjoy the other 99. Oh ... and Lyrai ... I'm probably old enough to be your father. I don't need mom's credit card. I have three of my own.
  5. You can probably guess how this will go by the topic title, but ... I'm all for commercial success ... Really ... But in my opinion, that was never the spirit of what this site was about. I'm definitely not in favour of this site "selling out" ... and though I may have donated previously... I never will buy the Mega Man album. I just don't agree with it.
  6. Game over for VGMix? NOPE

    Or ... just leave it as-is. OCR is a place I come for quality, peer-reviewed submissions. VGMix was a literal crapfest... I'd have to download 300 songs and sift through them to find a CD's worth of quality stuff. Good riddance. On OCR, I can download 300 songs and sift through them to find a CD's worth of bads.
  7. Game over for VGMix? NOPE

    Just a reminder ... vgmix.com is still dead. *sigh* Oh well. Did a search about it just today ... found this thread.
  8. Looks like the tracker has folded. Not your fault.
  9. Old McVaffe Remix?

    Does this help?
  10. Team OverClocked ReMix - Folding@Home

    That .. is just ... evil. Although... According to this link ... I've overtaken you with just 4 boxes running. 3 PCs and one PS3. In less than ... one month. *eviler grin*
  11. Does anyone rent games anymore?

    Last two I rented were MGS4 and Lair. I'm a huge dragon fanatic, but was delightfully unimpressed with Lair's linear gameplay. I'm not a huge fan of MGS4, but I enjoyed playing it more than Lair. Honestly, I'm glad I rented, otherwise I'd have wasted $60 on a game that would have collected dust. Something like what my GTA4 is doing now in favor of my Burnout:Paradise and WoW habit. *shrug* Honestly, renting makes sense. Especially if you don't know if you're going to like the game. Sure, some people will say "You're spending extra money on a game by renting it! zomg!" ... Uh .. no. Not really. In the long run, if the game is interesting enough that I actually play it during the week that I have it, then it stands a good chance that I'll buy it; however, if I don't play it, or worse, I return it within a day, then I've saved myself money on buying a dud. So far, the "shareware" concept works for console games.
  12. Team OverClocked ReMix - Folding@Home

    C'mon peeps. We need moar!!!! Moar Moar Moar!!! Our team activity is flagging, we're being overtaken and stagnating in and around 500th place. Let's at least try to push it up to 450 or so sometime before the next century!
  13. Is it just me ... or is bt.ocremix down?
  14. Thick and tasty, this mix starts off slow-roasted for maximum pleasure. The plucked intro's grace yields to a nice kick/snare combo with a bit of an overly loud high-hat in the left ear. Ahh...but enter the sinth pads countering the main melody being sung by a multiple violin set. The strings have been set in the back far enough to carry without being overly sappy. The high-hat is still tinging away though.... It all comes together with a piano interperatation of the Vega "End Theme" as the guitar contiues to pluck away. Synth pads meander in the back, behind the piano, providing interesting harmonizations. Quality stuff....but that high-hat nags me throughout the entire work. 9.5/10
  15. OCR00728 - Super Mario Kart "Rainbow Rain"

    This sounds like something one would hear at the end of the game while the credits roll across the background of the rainbow track as Mario drives a final lap holding th e checkered flag. No, that's not a run-on, and neither is it disparaging. It's good in its own merit, and has its place. Well thought of, but the engineering has too much treble, lending a rather tinny sound.
