  1. Hey OCR crowd! Wanted to quick plug the newest Castlevania tribute album I ran, after last year's X68000 album. https://smarturl.it/thebelmontadventure It's what it says on the package; a tribute to the music from the first 2 Gameboy Castlevania games, Adventure and Belmont's Revenge. Again had a fantastic troop of musicians helping me create this album (Snappleman, Alexander Brandon, Viking Guitar, etc.), which I've wanted to do for a little while but never put into motion until earlier this year. It's got a bevy of genres - metal, rock, orchestral, jazzy prog, electronic from a bunch of remix artists and even a few game composers in the mix! I'm really proud of the variety and skill that was brought to this album while covering some of my favorite music from the series. It's released currently on Bandcamp, Spotify, iTunes, Amazon Music and more. Proceeds will go to Bat Conservation International to help endangered bat species and their habitats; because you can't have a Castlevania without bats!

  10. Shnabubula was kind enough to grant me an interview regarding his work on Americana Dawn. Check it out! http://www.originalsoundversion.com/interview-with-americana-dawns-composer-shnabubula/
  11. I'mma just gonna put this right here..... ORGINAL SOUND VERSION - Dwelling of Duels 10th Anniversary Retrospective Yarp.
  12. Or you could just ask me what you want me to bring down with me. A vehicle makes for a wondrous booze mule.
  13. I was sent a message about this. It looks a lot like the Nintendo DS remake so far, but I only gave it a quick glance. It didn't seem like Huelsbeck was making any new music for this, though. Am I wrong? (I know he's pretty wrapped up in the Turrican Anthology project so I don't see how he'd have time)
  14. It displeases me how Arcus Odyssey has not been mentioned yet amongst Sakuraba's works:
  15. SPOILERS!! Yeah, they were totally going for a cliffhanger at the end there and I was all "Man, next season is going to be interesting seeing where she goes with only having airbending now.", but then they kind of squashed that immediately by giving her Avatar State and getting everything back and eliminating the cliffhangers. I was confused as to what the purpose of even giving her only airbending towards the end there, if she'd get it all back 5 minutes later. So it's like...now what will they do? They could essentially end it here, but I know they have a 2nd season prepping. Pretty deep shit with Tarlok/Amon, though. And goddammit I wanna see more of Bumi now, he's gonna be just like Sokka!
  16. Naga says FUCK YOU! Mustache Guy got his balls rocked by a pint-sized airbender and a Polar Bear-Dog.
  17. I thought it was already said Zuko had a daughter?
  18. Well now you HAVE to explain your....explanation.
  19. Yakone is a bender. Amon isn't, supposedly. Plus, two different voice actors. My friend has a theory it's the non-bender son of Aang and Katara.
  20. Speculation on how Tarlok can Bloodbend, GO! Only 2 people knew the secrets to bloodbending as far as the show has shown us - Katara and Hama. Who's this guy that he knows not only how to bloodbend, but can do it without a full moon?
  21. Simmer down there, Chern O_o Lords of Shadow didn't impress me, and yes, for the reasons GT mentioned. The music especially discouraged me, because in my opinion, it was bland theatrical background noise that for the most part was not memorable at all and didn't stand out in the least. (except for a few, like "Belmont's Theme") I'm really hoping Arajou takes a few pages from the various Japanese composers of not only past CV games, but in general, to help make the music a bit more melodic and something that stands on its own. That being said, I am interested in the story of LoS2 and Mirror or Fate. Gabriel was just a tragic character, moreso than the original Dracula in my opinion, so I've kinda got a soft spot for him and the potential story. We'll see where it goes. I'm not optimistic, but I'm not completely shooting it down either. I just hope some stuff has changed.
  22. Well it has been slow at work lately....
