  • Biography
    I used to be known as "megadave" on OCR. Circa 2015 I am now a trans female (aka male to female transsexual, pre-op), mostly agnostic religiously, and just happy to be here. My primary instruments are the electric and acoustic guitars, although I love playing bass guitar as well. I am an avid gamer, and have been playing video games since roughly 1987. I really love the 8 and 16 bit eras of gaming, but still love to play more current games if they are really good. I also love to lift weights, do cardio exercise, and play video games with my family and friends. I have a wonderful partner who is extremely influential in our city, and also two loving pets who give us constant love as long as we just give them a few snacks and pet them regularly. I also like gardening with my partner and making hot sauce, and cooking. :)

  1. Neon Shark

    Hi there. I would like to share some of my music. I know that OCR is full of lots of talented people. Musically, I have mostly performed "traditional", non-electronic instruments. But in the past year, I have composed electronic music under the moniker of "Neon Shark." I would like to hear your opinions, good or bad, or in between. https://www.facebook.com/neonsharkband/
  2. Metal - looking for new music

    She is an amazing front-person. One of metal's greatest vocalists today, if you ask me.
  3. Metal - looking for new music

    I love the new Powerwolf album. I didn't think they could keep up their momentum after the last album being so good, but the new stuff just crushes. Cheers.
  4. Metal - looking for new music

    Fear Factory's new album, Genexus, is great, if you're into the more "brutal" side of metal. Mastodon is kind of a "stoner-metal" band, and I highly recommend them as well. If you're looking for plain fun, and listen to metal simply for the joy of headbanging and freedom, I highly recommend Alestorm. They sing about pirates and are mostly nautical in lyrical structure. If you like gothic power metal, then I recommend Powerwolf. They are really heavy and catchy, with a Catholic-church theme going on. I also recommend Battle Beast, who have transcended from more traditional metal to a more 80's-glam style. They still rock hard though. And I do not believe that there is a such thing as too much Fear Factory.
  5. Street Fighter V

    No arcade mode. I can't confirm it without playing it myself, but it just screams "beta" to me.
  6. I can't remix for shit, but I'd like to post a link to the official live-recorded soundtrack for Double Dragon 2. It's very cheesy, but some of the tracks are really brilliant and go farther than they did on consoles and the arcade. "Advancing Towards Sunset" is a good example. I would love to see what some of you could do with this, and anyway I am super-excited that OCR is finally trying to give the give the DD series some respect.
  7. Nintendo Wii U

    It is well worth the investment. I read some reviews about how it is "quenching the thirst for F-Zero fans", and being an F-Zero fan since having the original SNES game, I must say that it's really the best thing fans of that series and of futuristic racers can get right now. The game's file size is only slightly over half a gigabyte, yet it looks and plays more like a full 60 dollar game than a budget indie title. The graphics are stellar, and the game-play is very similar to F-Zero although the boosts are done through a switching mechanic much like Ikaruga's (the Gamecube's most celebrated space shooter). The music is also awesome. There are lots of great tracks, and I personally like the music more than any F-Zero game excluding the first one. It's also hard as hell. Placing first on even the standard league is very difficult, and the speed is absolutely insane. I played locally with a friend the other day and he was like "holy shit this is intense". The level of polish in NEO is absolutely ridiculous for a budget title.
  8. Star Wars: The Force Awakens (Spoilers Inside!)

    I was freaking blown away by this movie today. I loved how it was much more gory and graphic than the previous movies. That scene where it shows a couple of planets being nuked by the First Order's death ray were especially over the top. Also, I loved Rey and Finn. I'm just wondering how those two characters will develop. Rey is obviously more powerful than Finn at this point, and can even wield the lightsaber like a pro, and use the force. I love Rey, but I also want to see how powerful Finn comes. Will he be the one to wield the saber in the next run? It seems to me that Rey is more at home with her staff, but she did not mess around with the saber either.
  9. Freedom Planet (It's Better than Undertale!)

    Can't we just all agree that this is a great time for old-school throwback indie games? About 70 percent or more of the modern games I play now are indie-developed. Galaxy Trail, Wayforward, Shin'en and a lot of other developers have been making kickass stuff and filling in the gaps in the souls of old-school gamers who need new adventures to embark on. Also, speaking if premium-tier indie games - If anybody has a Wii U and/or likes F-Zero, then download Fast Racing Neo right now. It is freaking awesome.
  10. Freedom Planet (It's Better than Undertale!)

    Freedom Planet is a damn good game. I've never played Undertale, but it looks like a completely different game. Freedom Planet is an old-school Sega-style throwback platformer, and Undertale appears to be a twisted 8-bit-style RPG. Both games have modern twists to them, but I can see why there is no need for comparison between the two. Even comparing Freedom Planet to something like Shovel Knight or Shantae makes no sense as they all play very differently from one another. But they are all worth playing for old-school game fans. And now, thanks to this thread, I may have to give Undertale a try because it looks awesome.
  11. Halloween Horror Gaming

    Here's one of my recent gaming videos, a playthrough of Splatterhouse. Boy-voice alert. Anyway, enjoy.
  12. Nintendo Wii U

    You're probably right. I get a bit out there sometimes. *face-palms self, asks ocr community to return to topic*
  13. Nintendo Wii U

    That really sucks. Have you tried contacting Nintendo for a replacement disc? I'm not sure if they would or not, but it's worth a shot.
  14. Super Mario Maker

    Nice one. I nearly died but somehow cleared it my first try, but it wasn't easy. Here's one of my mine, a short little kuribo shoe stomp-fest that some people seem to like: CE05-0000-0062-4FE5.
  15. Super Mario Maker

    Speaking of Super Mario Bros. 2 characters, I would love to have a level editor for that game. I can't complain though, because I see that the physics were way different for that game and many argue that it isn't even part of "canon". I feel overall that the game is well worth the value. Few games have made me smile in the past few years like this one. Now realistically speaking, I wouldn't mind the addition of slopes. I always loved sliding in Mario games, just knocking out some goombas and building momentum. Some different backgrounds would be nice as well. Nintendo has been really cool about patching their games and adding in new content. They showed this with Mario Kart 8 and Smash Bros. Wii U, I don't think new content is out of the question.
