  1. not sure if i'm going off topic here, but can you play this game with a 360 or ps3 controller for the pc version? if you have been doing so maybe you can hit me up a pm with directions as to how or reply here if its allowed.

  2. Its a video with a list of profiled people affiliated with the gaming industry, giving their thoughts of why they love Japan and how much they have contributed to the gaming world. The video provides awareness of the many great contributions of the Japanese people and how much they need our help right now, so please donate whatever amount you can to redcross or their site http://www.gamersheartjapan.com/.

    Also this thread is an open discussion of what you like about Japan. Your most liked game and game designer and if you like to add, your thoughts of how Japan made the gaming industry what it is today.

  3. Apparently there is a starcraft, warcraft theme park being built in china called joyland. It might be some stupid prank, but their main website looks pretty legit http://joyland.ccjoy.com/main.html

    The section of the park devoted to starcraft will be called Universe of Starcraft. The section for warcraft will be called Terran of Warcraft. Those are just rough translations though.

    here are some short articles that include concept arts and more info.

    Its not sure whether this is legal or if Blizzard actually have anything to do with this. Heck it might be some virtual world for all we know...

    Though the concept of a theme park based on a game such as Starcraft and Warcraft seems pretty cool, I would really like to see how this turn out; could be awesome or a disaster. Well if anything the bgm is pretty neat...

  4. Lately I have been looking for some nice relaxing music like chillout music or smooth jazz, etc but I am having troubles finding any decent ones.

    I came across Jazeboo's recent album Havana Moon. and I was blown away by the variations of songs that I found very pleasant to the ears.

    I was wondering if anyone could recommend artists with similar styles or remixes on the site.

    If you haven't heard of Jazeboo i recommend visiting their site Jazeboo.com. Great stuff.

  5. i was thinking about getting a ps3 and i wanted to know if you could use a ps1 memory card for the ps3. It would be really great so I don't have to restart from scratch.

    I know you have to use an adapter to transfer saves for the old ps3 model but I'm not sure if it'll work for the slim.

    also if the adapter works for the slim, can anyone recommend me a good one?

    thanks in advance.

  6. haven't heard the source, its a bit low to hear at times, other than that the quality is pretty good, when the electric guitar came in i thought it was going to rock out and didn't expected it to end so quickly as if you were teasing us =O, maybe you could expand on that part more it was really good. had another thing going on at 1:50 with the choirs and ended quickly yet again... started to get good near the end with the guitars and ended fast again.....Its as if you have these nice ideas going on but can't really expand on them

    i advise you to add a little more arrangements at 1:19, 1:50, 2:04 (with the solo acoustic) after that nice job at 2:24 to 3:22, best part out of the whole song imo.

    i bet some people are going to criticize your slow beginning, but i thought it was pretty good has a nice mystic feel for it.

    overall very potential piece you have here, can't wait for an update.

  7. I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this, so if it isn't, then feel free to move it.

    So I came across this title in the review forums from one of Fatty Acid's mix, and i tried looking it up but couldn't find the mix. I also have no way of contacting Fatty Acid since, he left no email and his last activity being in 2006.

    so i'm wondering if anyone has the mix and could upload it, or contact me through pm. thanks in advance.

    once again sorry if this is in the wrong forum >.<

  8. Just curious if anyone's heard about this game, seems interesting and Dark.

    From what I know they made a seperate game for each console. Nier Gestalt for the 360 and Nier RepliCant for the Ps3. Gestalt features a Burly protagonist trying to save his daughter from some sort of a virus. RepliCant features your typical jap protagonist trying to save his sister. It's an action Rpg.

    Also on a sidenote does anyone know what genre of music the bgm of the main site falls in?

    Japanese site: http://www.square-enix.co.jp/nier/

  9. As a fan of the ps1 era of music, especially the rpg types, I have to say you definitely captured that ps1 feel of music. They don't make music like they use to, I'm not sure whether I'm basing this off nostalgia or whatever, but just listening to this whole album, i definitely got the sense that it felt like it came from the mid 90's. Great work, wish i could comment on each song individually, unfortunetly i'm booked the whole day.

    Thanks for sharing, always enjoyed your work.

  10. I don't think people have appreciated just what the Wingless accomplished here. He's given this song a brand new personality through a completely original and nuanced chord structure along with some excellent writing. He's infused it with a level of complexity and maturity of sound we rarely see in video game music and made it contemporary and relevant (after all, isn't that what this site, above all else, aims to do?). It's subtle yet dramatic, and very clever. This song has been mixed over and over, and nothing else I've seen posted or in the WIP forum has come close to its originality. One of my faves.

    i completely agree, this has got to be one of the most complex piano arrangement mix i have ever heard. i've first heard this mix back in 2004 and i still listen to it till this very day. starting the mix with the water drop was brillant it gives you that sense of calm and peace. the slow build up into the main theme was phat stuff. nothing short of a masterpiece i have to say. highly recommended

    on a sidenote when will we see your next mix????? =OOOO

  11. as always your work never disappoints.

    I like how you started out the piece, very nostalgic indeed. It's pretty hard to mix on such a small source and the bell-like instruments or windchime thingy you added at th 58 sec mark was fantastic. and that 1:30 section was indeed surprising and well done. I'm not sure what else you could do in this piece since it's such a small source, but so far its brilliant. the productions are top notch as always.

    i'll be looking forward to your next update, and maybe a finished piece???? and good luck at your new university.

    Edit: i just thought of a crazy idea, you could add in a harmonica(it may or may not work so well) no harm in trying though, it just seems to fit the flow you have going on here, maybe just a solo part.

  12. oh this is really nice, don't think i ever heard fear factory mixed like this before. it's good to hear something slow, new age-like, and rpgish. actually come to think of it there hasn't been much of these type of mixes being posted as of late. keep up the work man. madd props to you =D

  13. hey does anyone have a high quality version of the BlueLightning mix he did for megaman it seems there was a high quality version posted on the forums but the link no longer works >.<. if someone posts a link that would be nice or pm =D.

  14. oh very nice and soothing. its a nice change of pace to hear especially in ocr. for some reason this reminds me of zelda. um my only problem with this piece happens to be the percussion (is it a konga?) it sounds kinda weak, i don't know maybe it's just me. other than that great work, i'll be looking forward to your next update.

    Edit: oh yea i forgot to add that i like how it sounds so celtic-like. i can definitely hear some mitsuda in there, havn't heard of sakuraba i'll have to look in to that.
