  1. I was sitting here thinking "Man, I wish somebody would remix the Jade Cocoon battle theme." I checked OC Remix and voila! My wish had been granted.

    Awesome as always, Another. Your Jade Cocoon works have always been my favorites here. You managed to take a song I already loved and always had stuck in my head, and made a version with even stronger qualities!

    It's hard to finish this reply as I keep getting distracted by the song itself, so I'm going to end it here. :D


  2. Well, this took me by surprise! Jade Cocoon's soundtrack is sadly overlooked, as was the game itself. I particularly liked how you kept the tribal elements intact without making them sound out of place in the ReMix. The 3:12 segment is extremely well done and nostalgic as well, different in style but it connects seamlessly. Altogether an excellent track.

    It even woke me up and cured my headache. That's good remix there. =)

    The Jade Cocoon soundtrack is an untapped well of musical goodness that was just begging for a proper remix, and it finally got one. I look forward to any further work you do, either on JC or anything else!

    "Try and sleep, if you must, but I will wake you with my dust..." - Man, memories are just flooding back...


  3. I really enjoy this remix. I listen to a lot of OC Remix stuff when I'm doing other things, and wouldn't you know In Mem'ry of Sir Anthony found itself very fitting for many games of NetHack. There is a whole lot of In Memory of going on in that game. =)

    The dark, sometimes even quiet nature of the remix can fill you with quite a lot of emotion. I especially like the gunshot and scream (From FFT no less, it seems!) at the ending; it goes together perfectly with the closing parts of the 'mix and feels very natural rather then simply "there along with" or "added in" as sound effects can sometimes be. Nothing, nothing at all feels out of place- Even the constant "heartbeat" like sound enhances everything without drawing too much attention to itself, I say. One of my personal favorites.


  4. Immaculate.

    Choir and Orchestra flow together flawlessly. This is epic-movie quality music; the sort of music you lean back in your seat to, hands full of popcorn, eyes as big as dishes as your heart pounds in rhythm with the music. A drink sits by you, untouched by human hands as awe restricts its consumption. Bits and pieces of snack food fly across the theater as thunderous applause erupts, shaking the walls, floor and ceiling. Wonder slowly turns to dismay as the crowd finally realizes that the song is, indeed, over and plans to hear it once more brew without words. A strange sense of vertigo sets over the people as their heart rates descend to normal levels and blood flows not quite so madly.


  5. Lufia? Bad? Eh. The story interested me, I liked the graphics and the music... the battles were nothing exciting but they weren't bad.

    What was bad, then? THE ENCOUNTER RATE. Holy tap-dancing Cthulhu, that was insane. Its sequel, however, MORE then made up for ANY flaw the original had. It was much more unique; infact, the encounters weren't random, you could bump into an enemy to start, and they'd move a lot. You could nab them with arrows to freeze them... basically, clever tricks could cause you to avoid boring fights. The way they moved only when you did sort of reminds me of roguelikes.


  6. As a person that doesn't post that often I doubt I have the right to make a judgment such as this, but I'd personally much prefer judges that let a poor remix in then judges that would keep a good remix out.

    Yes, I understand quality over quantity, but I'm sure even a few songs that most people find terrible have a small number of fans. There ARE a few remixes that I have no desire to listen to again, but from comments I've read on those, not everybody agrees.

    And if you are worried about bandwidth and storage space, well, bandwidth is and will likely stay expensive but storage space isn't all that bad. If it was, deleting a couple remixes wouldn't improve the situation any.

    If anything however, I'd say the judging of OC Remix has gotten more strict over the years, not more lenient. I don't see any of the remixes that get filtered out, so I can't tell you if I think this is good or bad. =)

    Edit: As an extra little note, I don't even delete the remixes I don't like, not even when I had just 16gb total of space. Now I have an external 80gb, so it's less of an issue...


  7. Here is some easy proof that you've created something excellent; I listened to it a couple times, grabbed a pair of headphones (Ear buds, technically), slammed them into the back of the computer in exchange for the speakers and set Winamp to Loop.

    Granted, I can agree that it's very close to just being a cover, and it's on OC remix, but the quality is superb. I really liked the solo-flute opening, so much so that I listened to it a few times by itself.

    A suggestion for any and all listeners, lest you have some extraordinary speakers, turn them up high or put on headphones; there is very subtle detail you can't hear unless you've got either going for you.

    Awesome. A personal favorite now. I have to gather up some cash and purchase Select Start's CD; I didn't even know there was one.


  8. Awesome. Very creative use of chiptunes and having the Genesis and NES 'duelling' is pretty neat. It starts off a little slow, but it goes insane in due time; I don't think you could of picked a better song to use for this concept. Bit later in the song I'm reminded of your other remix, Hunter's Community Chest, which I also enjoyed immensely. Sort of makes me think of Zelda versus Crusader of Centy. I love this remix, heh, it's like you drew awesome out of the weave to craft this.

    I'd suggest that anyone whom likes this should also check out Hunter's Community Chest. They are similar to me, although H.C.C. is a tad more mellow.

    And finally, Bummerdude, perhaps the name should of been "GIANT ENEMY CONSOLES" or something, eh? I guess we will just stick with a giant enemy Mantis Ant for now.


  9. Totally insane, crazy remix that jumps genres like trains in the wild west. If that doesn't explain it in detail, then I'll just come out and say this is made of awesome and win. Four or five thumbs up, depending on how many I can find.

    This is not the place for such an arguement. However, in casual defense, if you listen past the random (yet funny) sound clips, you'll notice an excellent remix.

    I mean, it put (for a moment) a saxaphone to Atma Weapon: The Fierce Battle. What is that, other then awesome?
