  1. Thanks for the heads up. Hopefully this won't be canceled like Play! last year in SF.
  2. Saga Frontier 2 and Tales of Legendia.
  3. I wasn't exposed to much mainstream music, but I got my music tastes from watching a bunch of AMVs (Anime Music Videos) when I was young, which featured I think (not sure of the correct genre) a lot of rock, so I grew up on listening to bands like Metallica, Linkin Park, Blink 182, P.O.D., Tantric, Creed and so forth. Unsurprisingly, I suppose by watching those AMVs I grew attach to anime and I still like it today. So when did I grow out of only listening to a genre? Probably during my Junior and Senior year high school. It was after I finished watching an anime called, "Air", and then I beca
  4. Well, how do you define music? When I hear music from Metal Gear Solid: Twin Snakes and enter somewhere like the Hall it feels ambient - nothing prominent stands out except it helps instill a sense of the environment like the sound of footsteps, the emptiness of the place and etc. But you wouldn't find me wanting to listen to "room noises": for lack of a better word, sorry. That's one type of immersion music can provide, which I can appreciate, but seldom, if at all, want to listen to solely by itself. What I like to hear and identity as music in games is the other type of immersion music bri
  5. Reuben Kee's - "Ascension to Cosmo Canyon" was the first OCRemix that stood out profoundly to me. I was in a weird rut - a turmoil of sorts - yet here was this beautiful piece playing this enchanting melody, softly telling me to rise up from wherever I was and move forward (Cosmo Canyon was one of my favorite FF7 tracks, if not, my most favorite). Unfortunately, shortly after I heard of Reuben's death, and it also happening a week later when I found out about OCR, I felt a strange, overwhelming sadness welling up inside. I didn't really know the guy yet I was visibly saddened. But then a revel
  6. Anything VGM related eh? Then I'll suggest PS2 Chaos Legion (Obscure) PS2 Shadows of the Colossus PS2 Soul Nomad PS2 Xenosaga 2 Movie Scenes only PSX Final Fantasy Tactics PSX Saga Frontier 2 NDS Subarashiki Kono Sekai DC Shenmue DC Soul Calibur 1 SNES Super Mario RPG PC Civilization 4 (Baba Yetu is a must...)
  7. Yeah, the slowdown can be annoying. I had to clock my phat PSP at 333 mhz to not really notice any significant slowdown, but it's still there unlike the old PSX version where everything was pretty smooth. The PSP FFT was so bad though, despite the overclocking, I felt the need to turn off all those prompts I would have just left on when I played the PSX FFT. The only reason I'd much prefer the PSP port despite the slowdowns is because of the multiplayer aspect just like how the PSP Disgaea has forced me to give up it's PS2 counterpart.
  8. A PS2 JPN exclusive game that never made it to the U.S., also composed by Motoi Sakuraba. Ever since I've listened to Scaredism's ReMix of Valkyrie Profile, it brought back memories of an arranged track found in the Premium OST of the ToDr Director's Cut Premium Box set called Lion (pronounced Leon) ~ Irony of Fate I thought lacked the energy found in its previous counterparts (PSX and PS2) and an inability to represent the duality of Lion's defining moment and tragedy with live instruments. A mixture of vigorously fighting to the very end yet a noticeably deep, underlying sadness was what I
  9. Some very nostalgic memories here indeed. My only gripe with this was the piano wasn't taken farther, but it's only because it, for some strange reason, reminded me of the piano version of Subarashiki Shin Sekai from Namco X Capcom and I was curious to what could have developed. Overall, good job on getting the first VP mix here.
  10. My condolences goes out to one of my favorite OCRemixers. I wish him well.
  11. Wouldn't Darude's Sandstorm be classified as Trance? Have that song in my trance album so beats me if it isn't or not (don't know much music genres either). By anyway, would this mix apply? It's a trance remix of I believe Bach's Air on a G String And be happy I know the name (I kid). But seriously, it took me a random chance encounter to discovering the name of this song. I knew it sounded very familiar but the trance name was a hell to find... Originally found the Trance song here... from a Tales of combo vid, lol. You have been warned.
  12. A bunch of songs from Shenmue. I feel like crying for the wait I had to go through before game rips came

    Some of my personal favorites (no specific genre): Mushishi Hajime No Ippo Honey & Clover Code Geass Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann Byousoku 5 Centimeter

    I was awestruck that I finally found the piece I listened to at Video Games Live. Strangely, if you want a download of the song, I find mine (better sound quality than the one I had) at wikipedia.

    To those that haven't heard yet, the last few minutes of the 3rd episode of Code Geass was leaked along with the preview to the 4th episode by what seems to be by one of the staff members, who's arrested now from what's been said. There are several things Sunrise might do including the worse case scenario of redoing episode 3, which would result in a 2+ week wait in my estimation and the most likely situation considering the nature and presentation of Code Geass imo so far for both this season and last.
