  1. This has been my favorite track on Maverick Rising so far (and there's a lot of greatness to choose from). There's just so much POWER and ENERGY. It's wonderfully made, and made me appreciate the source material about a hundred times more. I'll be watching you in the future, Dominic. Work like this could put you among my favorite remixers fast.
  2. My only sorrow is that there aren't nearly enough seeds yet for the torrent dl to be quick.
  3. This is the most excited I've been for an OCR Album release since Voices of the Lifestream. Pretty close in scope and size too. I can't die until I absorb all of this music through my ear holes. Sensually.
  4. This is the same as the version on the FFIV remix Album, right? Loved it then, love it now.

    Thank you for your kind words about D&D. It was a very challenging piece to design audio wise so it's nice to get props for it. Take care and thank you for your support

  6. This piece is incredible. This is my favorite track put up since bLiNd's "Jade Catacombs". It seems your intention at contrast was carried out very nicely and provides a greatly epic experience, and I would hope that a good orchestral piece like this could set the tone for more work from FFVIII like it. The source material in that game is incredible, and you guys did it great justice.
  7. A buddy and me did that on Melee once. He held the right side of the controller and I the left. I'm pretty sure we actually got a couple kills, but otherwise it was mostly frantic and painful.
  8. Anyone who put the time into it could learn all the Melee Advanced Techniques, so I don't see what's cheap about it. It was a nice gimmick of being someone who really put time in the game. As for this B-stick stuff, this if the first I've seen of it. I think I'll wait until some others find good applications for it before I try learning for myself.
  9. Where can I find the OCR Brawl code database? I'd like to test my mettle against you crazy mothers.
  10. I didn't think I would ever hear a good or effective remix of One-Winged Angel, especially since the Advent Version is among the top three most epic songs of all time. The problem I foresaw was not a lack of material to work with - but such an abundance of it that bringing it all together effectively would be nigh impossible. And yet...this remix is jaw-dropping; utterly awesome! You guys took the right approach from the beginning in opening up creatively and taking it very far away from the original. The intro sets up for the buildup so well I get chills every time I listen to it. There is such a drive and power to the music that it makes me feel like I'm fighting Sephiroth for the the first time all over again, praying Bahamut Zero can last a couple more turns. Heck, the song is just long enough to make it through one usage of Knights of the Round (jk). It's just great, and a very original take on the piece. It succeeds at what it was trying to be to the highest level. And while it is short, the piece itself is so engaging that it feels longer.
  11. Love the alternate cover art! Since Friday, I've listened through the entire album 3 times on my PSP and/or computer while lounging, and I can say that there is no reason to be disappointed. It just becomes more enjoyable the more I listen to it, and I love the style present in nearly every track. I've burned it to CD's so I'll be listening at work as well for much time to come. Though I plan to review these tracks individually in the future, I'll name a few of my favorites- - Deliverance of the Heart (perfect way to start off!) - Nomura Limit - Son of Chaos - Lunatic Moon - Short Skirts - Serenity - Crystal Sermon (Addictive as heck) - Sephiroth's Wake - Midnight at Club Corel - Daydreaming Again - The Crossroads - Omnislash - Beginning of the End - Black Wing Metamorphosis (In regards to this, I feel this may be the only successful remix of OWA - not because a lack of material, but an abundance of it. Considering that, this came out fricken awesome. I feel deprived at only 3:17, because the drive and build up totally captures the feeling of the situation just as well as the original.) Though if you put it against A:OWA...wow. Anyway, this album is a success in every meaning of the word on the highest level. Much love for everyone who worked on this! I shall be enjoying it for years and years to come.
  12. This has altered the entire course of my month. I am currently in a financial low point and did not know what I was going to do for fresh music. I check OCR once a day in hopes for a new track... And I get 45 tracks across 4 CD's of one of my favorite soundtracks of all time. OWA is definitely different from what I'm used to, but having heard the other versions so much, it's great to get a fresh take on it, and it really is cool. Everything sounds great thus far. This is just so awesome I cannot believe it. I wasn't even aware of this project. It was a complete surprise to me. I can't sleep now. Yes. Yes. YES.
  13. What an excellent mix to open up the doors for Nintendo's latest journey into Hyrule. The piece is beautiful, the source is used wonderfully, and I couldn't be happier to have heard it. Great work as always, DarkeSword
  14. I love this remix. I didn't really notice it at first when I dl'd it, then I threw it onto a CD to fill up the last 8 minutes and when I listened to the whole thing through at work, this stuck out as my favorite track by far. I love the slow buildup, and where it leads. I wouldn't want anything about it changed. A wonderful, wonderful song.
