  1. Hey guys, I have a problem. Is it just me, or does anyone else think this is about the lamest port of a DotA hero EVAR? Also, where by God's good graces is KING LEORIC?

    Always enjoyed your music, often respected your opinions in the dreaded off-topic realms. Gonna miss ya, dude. Good fortune to you and yours!

    Scott Pilgrim vs. The World

    Haven't seen the film yet, but the comic was pretty good. I'm happy to hear all the positivity about the film, though.

    OCR01495 - Chrono Trigger "Town Life"

    I often come back to this song. It is easily my favorite CT remix on the site, and possibly at the top of my list overall. The feelings of warmth and sincerity that go along with the themes of great adventure and loneliness in this song are moving at the very least, and the most this song expresses one of the fundamental trails we all go through as we come of age. A fine, heartfelt interpretation of excellent source material and a true example of what a wonderful thing a ReMix can be.

    Merry Christmas, OCR!

    Hot tap-dancing Jesus born again, it IS Tyler Heath! A Crimas miracle, says I! Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and good cheer all around. Also, I spent days looking for your complete artifact of power series on the web a few months back. So worth it. <3 Edit: Also, just played those seasonal tunes on our show. Righteous, dude.

    Playing a game for so long you start to see it IRL...

    I'm not sure what this says about me, but sometimes when I'm stalking about my college campus, I get a VERY "Left 4 Dead" feeling. It's probably a good thing I don't own a firearm, because there are several occasions where I'm all alone and I suddenly, out of nowhere, a horde comes at me in a claustrophobic corridor. I hate it when classes get out right next to tiny hallways...

    Impulsive thoughts - games

    Every time I go on a road trip, I crave Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. I swear, I get three miles outside of town and BAM, I suddenly wanna be roaming through that all too familiar castle again.

    Post-Wii Commericalized Gaming

    I think that is what I'm getting at, yeah. I guess before we go any further, we have to define what a good game is. Feel free to disagree with me, but I'd call a game good if it's deep OR challenging, and I'd call a game great if it was both. By and large, I'd say that most games aimed at your "casual gamer" aren't all that deep. Yes, they can be very challenging, and some can have certain level of depth or complexity, but by virtue of being designed for the "casual gamer" they won't ever be great. I'd say a lot of casual games are pretty good, but they lack that something that can make a game truly astounding. And since there are more and more casual games being produced and less overall games hitting the market, well, hence my first post.
