  1. I posted it on the visitor's message on bLiNd's thread. But I wanted to suggest Mother 3, "Hard Rain" or "A Tiny Enormous Miracle"
  2. Hey bLiNd. I have a suggestion for a remix. I've listened to your other Earthbound remixes. What about doing a Mother 3 remix. It's a very hard soundtrack to do remixes for as far as I can tell from listening to the soundtrack so many many times. Anyway, I'm just throwing this out there, but my suggestions would be "A tiny enormous miracle" or "Hard rain". Two absolutely emotional tracks. Anyway, other than than, I love you work. You never miss a beat *chuckle*.

  3. bLiNd, you really have captured pure and beautiful energy in this piece of music. I took deep breath the first few seconds I listened it (the second time) and pure chills rand down my spine. The vocals combined with the fast paced energetic beats are fantstic. Kudos to you brother. Brilliant piece of work.
  4. I could name a few games. Some of them are more obscure. There is yet to be any remixes of Mother 3 (as far as I have seen). Okage Shadow King is pretty obscure...I could think of 2 tracks in that game that could be remixed rather well. I think World of Warcraft (although very well known) has a few tracks...mainly the battlegrounds themes that could offer great fast paced and or heavy remixes.

    Mother 3

    All I gotta say is, I imported Mother 3, played thru it 3 times, can't read a lick of Japanese. I used a translation at GameFAQs and pretty much got the jist of it. Mother 3 is one of the greatest games I have ever played. The battle system is unique, the story is deep and dark. Blatent content that makes it instantly "innapropriate" for our censored American culture. I love everything about it. Shigesato Itoi is a genius. Mother (series) in general is the most unique RPG series to this day. Most RPGs follow the swords and sorcery trend, but Mother stepped it up and kicked butt with a Baseball Bat, Psychic powers and Pizza. Oh, an FYI, Mother 3's Rhythm battle system is harder on an emu cause of the sync time, never had a prob on my cart tho.
  6. excellent, thanks fella's. I usually have very little success finding a good database for sound on the net.
  7. Ok, I am looking to do a Mother 3 remix. And I'm considering using some WW2ish type sound effects, perhaps marching effects I am not quite sure but anyways. I was wondering a couple things. What is a good Synthesizer (or even Synth Program) to use and also what are some good Databases for SFX to look into? Would really appreciate the help. I want to make my first remix, a remix to remember.
  8. I just read today that Lucas from Mother 3 (what would have been Earthbound 64) is going to be an unlockable in SSBB. Freaking sweet. Anyone else play Mother 3?
  9. So I pirate walks into a bar lads, with a steering wheel down his pants, and the bartender looks at the pirate and says "Hey lad, ya realize yer gots a steering wheel down yet pants" and the pirate looks down and looks back at the bartender and says "ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR, AND ITS DRIVING ME' NUTS!"
  10. SPOILER WARNING!~ KH2 definately would rock, especially the "Steamboat Willie World" Battle Music. And "Katamari on the Rocks" or (I don't know why but it cracks me up) "Fugue #7777"
  11. That one sums up Aeris' death pretty well. This one sums up the entire game perfectly. http://youtube.com/watch?v=nllR2k3uTNg
  12. Yeah, I can agree that she was inspired by personal experience of the creators putting it into their story. Sure thats great. But typically (and I am not vouching for all gamers) most people who play RPG's want to play a story w/well developed characters and an engrossing plot which, yeah, isn't full of plotholes. Another note, on creators personal interest in their games. I really don't think most gamers would be interested in (for instance) knowing that Giygas' dialogue in the final battle of Earthbound is inspired by (and I take a direct quote from Wikipedia) "a traumatic childhood experience where he (Shigesato Itoi the creator) mistakenly walked into an adult movie theatre and caught a glimpse of a sex/rape scene in the 1957 movie Kenpei and the Dismembered Beauty". Not exactly something you want to know, BUT, surely interesting trivial material. I agree, Sakaguchi is a genius, when it comes to putting together a game. Final Fantasy VII however, is just a giant cash cow now for Square-Enix, which fanboys and fangirls easily sway into. NOT TO SAY, that some of the titles they are releasing aren't good, BUT, it is going a little overboard.
  13. Ya know, your right, I'm thinking about it now, that I am a lot more cognitive than I was when I wrote that last respone. Fei was pretty whiny too.
  14. I hear you can use her boobs as a weapon in the up-and-coming remake of Final Fantasy VII for the PS3.
  15. OCR has personally inspired me as a person and actively helped me prove to people that VG music is not just noise. My buddy Jon at work, avid outdoors man, works out, bikes, athletic and probably someone you would never see playing video games more than once in a blue moon. I got him jamming w/me in the car to OC Remix tunes. He was howling to a Tetris remix (Thirty-Plus Mix by R3FORGED) I had. I played a SMW remix (Monstrous Turtles! by zircon) and he looked at me and said "Holy shit, Super Mario World" which was a surprise to see a extremely casual gamer remeber something like that. I could say that the social influence of OCR has gotten so far that, I went to a rave and heard JENOVAD Trance by FFMusic Dj, and I yelled in my friends ear right when I heard the first note (I listened to it at least 300-500 times in my life maybe more...I can recognize THE first note) "JENOVA REMIX" she looked at me funny and when she finally heard that first recognizable note from the song, she was like "SWEET". I'm curious as to how OCR has influenced other people.
  16. I have to agree, I don't think I would have enjoyed FF games during the PS/N64 generation on the N64. I am a tad Nintendo biased, yes, but I feel (even if they could have fit FF7-9 on a cartride) I wouldn't have enjoyed it on the N64. I would have felt goofy first of all holding that big ass goofy looking controller, and getting into an epic fantasy world adventure. The only good RPGs on N64 were...NONE. The only good "near RPG" games, more action adventure, were Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon, LoZ:OoT (Majora's Mask...was...somewhat disappointing), Paper Mario and thats about it. I'm starting to digress a bit so onto the next paragraph. Now I'm going to say this, cause I'm going more toward the subject of console popularity of the generation. Playstation had it all. Good companies backing them up, state of the art console technology that blew games of that time out of the water. Companies thought of the limitations a cartridge had to them hardware and performance wise and chose Playstation to be the better bet. N64, simply up there with the bad ideas by Nintendo not to exclude the Virtual Boy (cringe). Cartridges were outdated, CD's were the up and coming format. Especially w/the dawn of the memory card. OMG WHAT?!! YOU MEAN WE CAN SAVE OUR GAME AND TAKE IT SOMEWHERE ELSE WITHOUT HAVING TO FEAR THAT ONE DAY THE SAVE BATTERY MAY DIE AND WE LOSE OUR INSANELY AWESOME PROGRESS?! Save batteries. Outdated. Sega and NEC had the right idea when they put out Sega CD and Turbo Grapix CD. Unfortunately for them, people were still skeptical abouts CDs since it was a new and "foreign" concept. The memory card became king. Not only was it a good way to profit for the console manufacturer, but it also gave the player a sense of security w/their save data. NOT to mention, you could rent a game, and STILL have your personal save data after you took it back to the rental store. HOW COOL IS THAT?!! I just remembered, I beat Final Fantasy 7 for the first time ever, on a 7 day rental in 45 hours and didn't actually own the game until 2004. Anyways, it was the innovative thing at the time. All those reasons struck me as another reason to buy a PS1. And by the time the PS2 came out (Got one the day it came out...because the PS1 impressed me so much) I had a collection where i had 6 PS games for each N64 game I owned (which was about 13). Even today, innovation takes the market. Look at the Wii, everyone wants it. Some people don't know why, others do...ITS JUST COOL. Not to mention its inexpensive, innovative, creative, fun, casual, unintentionally health stimulating and (DAMNIT, way to go Shadowolf, you got me on a RANT) connective. Its going to sell, because yea, its cool to play Resident Evil 4 by aiming and shooting, its cool to literally cut the shit out of a zombie, its cool to throw a football to your teammate while playing against someone on the other side of the world. It definitely piques the interest of parents too, because it gets their kids off their asses. Doesn't let them sit there the whole time, and at some time they will get tired of standing waving a control around, find something else to do for a while, and when they feel like it, come back and delve back into their game; instead of mindlessly playing games for hours straight sitting on your ass and eating potato chips (not that there is anything wrong with that, and we're all guilty of having one of those 24 hour or more sessions.) Square "is going to cater to who can sell their products and gets their story out" as Shadowolf put it. And I have to say, I don't think hardcore FF players are going to want to wave a Wii remote around to select a command for the next action. They are going to want to have a traditional, relaxing and mind engrossing intimate session with that involved FF plotline (save FF-X2....horrible story, awesome battle system). So yea....
  17. Righto (wish I would have thought of that more generally when I named the thread...blah...but who cares, if you haven't played it by now....you 1, either already know about it, or 2 will never play it. Maybe one of the mods will rename the thread "Heartwrenching VG moments (Spoiler warning)" ::hint hint:: (jk, lol). But thats all beside the point. SPOILER WARNING... I think a game has so much more substance to it when you can relate to a character. In Xenogears for instance. You can relate to Fei, in the sense that he is struggling to figure out who he is as a person. He learns through his experiences that there are parts of him he didn't know exist. And underwent the personal trials (for a lack of better wording) to find out for himself who he was. UNLIKE Cloud, who is a whiny spikey haired punk who gets headaches, Fei has a goal in mind after he decides what he wants to do. Cloud just kind of goes with it, not really caring about the end result. The only time I truely saw any emotion in Cloud was the last cutscene where Tifa was falling off the airship and Cloud runs, dives and rescue. That is THE ONLY point I find to be at all appealing about Cloud, where he finally decides to be a man. Not to make it Cloud bashing session, cloud is a badass in some senses. Cloud was poorly developed too...and a confusing mess as well.
  18. Mmm. Its like an Octorok to the slaughter....
  19. SPOILER WARNING....although PS4 is almost...13 years old Ya know, I never finished PS2, I couldn't really get into the slow gameplay, although I played a ways in. Phantasy Star series itself has always had a profoundly darker storyline to it series in general though. When Alys died I just wanted to grab Zio by the stupid throat and strangle him. Her character was more developed that Aeris, and so was Nei. I thought Aeris was underdeveloped for as long as you got to know her. Maybe Crisis Core (god help the flood of milking the FF7 cash cow), will develop her better.
  20. Ok, I love this one. Who cried when Aeris died? I didn't I kinda laughed and was shocked but I didn't cry. I think the first time I cried or felt emotionally bonded to a character was Phantasy Star 4. I'm just curious. Because I really feel it is overhyped that people say "Oh my gosh, Aeris dying is the most shocking moment in video game history" So just wondering what peoples thoughts are.
  21. Thats mainly one reason I was asking haha, cause playasia has it on sale for 15 bucks, so you are saving 34 dollars....OK, thanks for the input
  22. Classic game, for all those who remember the caveman with REDONKULOUSLY sized head. This is only a suggestion to throw out into the riff raff, but it would be quite interesting to hear a remix of the boss themes from Bonk's Adventure and Bonk's Revenge.
  23. I'd be interested in providing vocals of sorts. Whether they be lyrical or not. I constantly hum various themes from games in a soothing melodic hymn whenever im at work or keeping busy w/something I hate lol. Not to mention I am also taking voice lessons from my buddy who is a professional Opera singer.
  24. OK. I can assume almost everyone here has either heard of or played Earthbound (Mother) Now, anyone who has played Mother 1 or 3 would it be worth buying an import copy of either game 1 or 3. I own Earthbound....one of my favorite RPG's actually. A cult classic if i may.
  25. Simply put. Excellent. I have been frequenting OCR since 2002 as I mentioned in another thread. I must say, I was very impressed by the tracks I never expected to hear remixed in my life. Sometimes you hear a game track, when you play it and think "I don't know if there would be any other way to hear this track". But yet again, OCR has proved me wrong I definately dig the remix of "Birth of a God," "Beginning of the End" by bLiNd. I never expected to hear a remix of that track. And bLiNd really pulled it off to the point where I got a chill down my spine, not only because of how well it was remixed, but also that part of FF7 i remember very clearly and was essentially one of my favorite battles in the game (despite how wretchedly easy it was). Xaleph took me by surprise with "Son of Chance". The remix itself, took the "Shinra Company" theme to a whole new level. I felt a more sinister feel to the theme than originally. Rufus was a punk, but damn, Xaleph can make Rufus feel more evil than Kefka. "JENOVA Celestial" was another remix that just makes you smile (well me anyways ). Granted I have heard many "J-E-N-O-V-A" remixes, this one sticks out. If you've ever wondered why the characters "dance" when they are waiting in battle....idly for their next command, bLiNd is the reason behind that. Especially when kicking J-E-N-O-V-A's lame face in. I don't even know how to describe "Black Wing Metamorphasis" other than. All the collaborative remixers (bLiNd, Fishy, pixietricks, Sixto Sounds, Steffan Andrews, Suzumebachi, tefnek) just took "One-Winged Angel" to a level of awesomeness I didn't expect. I think Sephiroth is a lamo but, you made him a serious bada** in my book. The feeling of "Trans Siberian Orchestra" meets "Tetris" crosses my mind when I hear the transition from the 8-bit into the instrumental segment. Simply AMAZING. The entire album itself is AMAZING, those are just a few that stuck out in my mind.
