    VGM in timesigs other than 3/4 and 4/4

    Skimmed through the thread and didn't see "Summoned Beast Battle" from FFX mentioned, which is in 5/4. Also I recall "Gnosis" from Xenosaga Episode I being at least partially in 5/4, but I'm not entirely sure. There was also a dungeon theme from the first Star Ocean that was in 7/8 or something, but I can't remember which.

    CHIPAMP: NSF (NES music) support

    NEZplug lets you specify titles and timings for individual tracks in .m3u playlists, using a special extended playlist format. You can find an explanation in the readme file.

    Can You Hear This?

    I'm 24, almost 25, and I can hear pretty clearly up through 17k. At 18k, I can hear the tone for a bit, then it kinda drops out and blends in with the background noise. After that, I'm not sure. Those things gave me a headache.
  4. I love how they just threw in the offically-announced ones at the end and didn't even bother to use the same font as the others.

    Great moments of Videogame Engrish

    Don't forget this one:

    How are those save batteries doing?

    I haven't tried any of my old games in a long time. I remember checking out my Pokemon Silver cart a couple years ago; the clock was shot, but the data was still there. I don't think I tried saving the game again, though. I haven't checked any of my Gen. I carts (2 Red, 1 Blue, 1 Yellow) in probably over 5 years, though. My copy of Kirby Super Star probably came with a bad battery or something; it constantly erased my files at random from the day I got it back in 1996 or whenever.

    I want to build you a computer

    I might be in the market for a new computer soon. I'll have to keep this in mind.

    Soundtracks you didn't know were stolen

    Here's one I came across while listing to some C64 tunes. Bombo (Commodore 64) - City: (starts around 0:39)Donkey Kong Land (Game Boy) - Construction Site Fight:

    Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver

    No, there never was an official soundtrack album released for G/S. There are a few unofficial rips out there, though. (I made one myself, but it's not very well-circulated.)

    Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver

    I just hope they do a good job with the music. And that it gets an actual soundtrack release; it's a shame that the original G/S is the only generation not to get one.

    Rant alert: game saves this gen suck!

    The worst thing about the "memory card era" was the unreliability of third-party cards. I lost so much progress because of third-party memory cards that would randomly wipe themselves out.

    CHIPAMP: PSF (PS1 & PS2 music) support

    Actually, NEZplug++ can do this. Open up the "File Info" window while the GBS is playing and click the "Channel Mask" button. The row of buttons labeled "DMG" controls the GBS channels.

    Why is this site so scared of actually reviewing songs?

    Not everyone reacts the same to negative reviews. Sometimes they're accepted or ignored, and other times, the thread blows up because one or two people didn't think it was "OMG THE BEST SONG EVER!!!1" like everyone else. That doesn't seem to happen as much as it used to, though. Still, I just don't think it's worth the potential hassle to post negative reviews. Not that I've ever been much of a reviewer, anyway.

    The Most Annoying Song Ever (Scientifically)

    Someone needs to make an "opera rap" CD.

    Kirby's Adventure

    http://kirby.ocremix.org/ "Final Flight ~ Theme of Final Star" should be what you're looking for.

    Chiptune project?

    Well, if you want to be technically accurate, the expansion chips would be pretty much out of the question. The FDS expansion is part of the Famicom Disk System (of course) and could only be used by FDS games. And since the concept is for an NES game, this is out. The MMC5 may be a better possibility, but still pretty unlikely. Nintendo themselves didn't use it that often (Koei, Konami, and HAL seemed to use it most frequently). The biggest problem, though, is the fact that the NES didn't support the expansion chips' extra sound channels; only the Japanese Famicom supported this. So, in short, to answer the question "What would SMW sound like if we had played it on the NES?", you'd have to stick to the basic 5 sound channels only.
  17. At least I managed to stay out of last place.

    OCR01465 - Sonic & Knuckles "Lover Reef"

    I'm sorry, but I don't like the vocals in this mix. They don't work well together at all, and in my opinion, the vocal style doesn't really fit the intended mood of the song. I just can't get anything out of it. It did get the source tune stuck in my head for a few days, though.

    OCR00865 - Super Mario Bros. 3 "aquacadence"

    Wow. I can't think of anything that hasn't already been said. It's amazing how a fun little NES tune can be transformed into an grand orchestral number. I love orchestral mixes, and this is now definitely among my favorites (along with stuff like "Pilot the Yggdrasil" and Rise of the Star's "Dreams of Valor").

    OCR01451 - Final Fantasy "Finally Home"

    I love this one. The 'Warriors of Light' remix did a great job of transforming the original track into an uplifting rock theme, but this one just takes that to a whole new level. ...But I can't decide which I like better!

    OCR01339 - Final Fantasy "Warriors of Light"

    I can't get enough of this one lately. It just seems to grab me and not let go. Great work.
