  1. Background: I recently watched a series of videos put out by a particular Let's Play'er on YouTube in which he went through an answered a bunch of Formspring questions while playing (I believe) Fire and Ice and a particular SMB3 Rom Hack.

    A friend of mine thinks it might be fun to try something like this out; the problem being is that I don't have any questions. So, I decided to come to my friends at OCR and see if I could get some assistance.

    (Note: I really hope I'm not breaking rules here...)

    Basically, I'll answer anything; whether it is serious, fun, or just plain ridiculous. I'll be recording the video with my friend (who will be asking me the questions while I frustrate myself with whatever game I happen to play) on Tuesday (believe it's the 10th of May.)

    I don't know if I can get any interest here, but even if you went and asked one question, which would help make (in my mind) my first video a mild success, I'd be super appreciative. Considering I'm pretty much a no-name here, I'd understand if this post just gets brushed to the wayside.

    So, anyway, here is a link to my Formspring. http://www.formspring.me/DanielRydell

    Like I said, I'd appreciate anything you guys take time to ask and I will definitely make sure the video gets linked here.

  2. Between having problems with my internet, as well as my video editor, as well as other unmentioned issues, I wasn't able to get my video uploaded in time. Sorry.

    Oh well, means I'll have to start putting ideas together for the next competition!

    Edit: Oh yeah! The entries are pretty rockin' too!

  3. I listen to XM Radio on occasion but that's it. Free Radio is just noise after about 45 minutes to an hour of listening. It gets annoying really, really fast.

    We are a spoiled generation.

    I'm going a bit off track here, but I disagree with your sentiment partly. I do not believe that we are a spoiled generation; I believe that we want more, because we have the ability to have more. Why listen to the radio and hear songs that you dislike and like, when you can throw two earbuds in your ear, or plug in your iPod in your car and listen to all music you like?

    Mainstream radio still appeals to a group of people, but I'm not sure how long that will continue. I do agree however, listening to the radio does get annoying quickly.

    Now all we have to do is shed the 'video games are for children' stigma!

    It excites me that they are finally realizing that video game music is a form of creative expression. It has been a long time in coming, but I believe that is has been deserved since the invention of video games themselves. Even back in the 8-bit days, creative tunes were made to symbolize the games that weren't necessarily eye catching. It didn't change the facts of how much work was put into it.

    Nor does it change the fact that the music itself was memorable in addition to its creativeness. I say "Bravo."

  5. At risk of sounding like a broken record, if you're there, look for me. I'll be wearing a OCR shirt on Friday, and a Gabe (from Penny Arcade) outfit-thing on Saturday.

    Hope to see you there!

  6. Since we're on the subject of VGMix and its remixes, does anyone have the FFX-2 mix Under a Full Moon (or know where I can get it)? I know it got remixed and posted over here, but I used to have the original and I really enjoyed it in correlation to the new remix over here.

  7. I'm gonna say no on this one... but there's a small possibility I might be able to, since I get paid the day before and I could make the drive. Hm. I'll look into it.

    Edit: Never mind. I thought there was a possibility, then I realized the 10 hours it would take to get there. Not on short notice, unfortunately. When I have a bit of cash saved up, I'd consider flying out to do it. (I'm in Michigan... :()
