  1. Listened to this for the first time earlier this year. Very enjoyable. Thanks for putting this together (and thanks to all the mixers and stage hands). The foretold third disk though... yessssssssssssssssssssss.
  2. Vagrant Story. One of the best stories and some of the best storytelling I've ever taken in from a game. Superb music. Great gameplay that improved upon that of Parasite Eve (1). An otherwise near-perfect game made tedious (or impossibly hard for the nonpersistent) by the lack of weapon hot-swapping, which is all the more unforgivable by the fact that L3 and R3 were unmapped. And it's not like the designers didn't know that the player would need to constantly swap weapons; they're the ones that varied the enemy type between, and even inside, rooms. So obvious a fault and little effort needed to prevent it... nice bungle, Square. I still recommend VS to anyone who can go back and play a PS1 action-RPG and can stand some menu-based tedium. Even with its scar it's still a phenomenal game.
  3. Instrumentals can be hard to track down for the casual listener. However, for songs, I highly recommend googling the lyrics to discover the band and see if any of the rest of their stuff is good. I've found a trove of highly enjoyable music that way, some of which was from bands labeled one-hit wonders or otherwise neglected by modern radio. I understand that a lot of adults - adults who dig "classic" rock, no less - haven't heard albums like Who's Next, Aqualung, or Led Zeppelin (IV), but it still makes me sigh. At the FM radio format more than anything, I suppose. Aw, Moseph... By those ignorant of its title. A few without lyrics. [Does yodeling preclude the title of instrumental?] The Alan Parsons Project - Sirius (the first four minutes)Focus - Hocus Pocus Rush - YYZ The Ventures - Walk, Don't Run Dick Dale And The Del-Tones - Miserlou
  4. Relevant. I particularly like this one. 1. Although the world might not revolve around you, time certainly does around your actions. Feel free to investigate, adventure, and generally dick around as long as you please, for your future advancement is assured. 2. Should the sun set without your permission, do not be troubled. The onward marching of days is a ruse, for the wise old man shall endlessly muse in his hovel, the loyal yet headstrong companions shall remain halted mid-quest awaiting your intervention, and the perceived incarnation of doom shall limit his havoc-wreaking to unknown provinces. While you might not make every acquaintance or embark on every quest, repeatedly hearing (hearing) the same line from the village bosoms is obviously of far more import. 3. In the rare circumstance that there exists someone who refuses to cater to your schedule or an event so impetuous to occur on its own, and missing said person or event has catastrophic results, remember: time is cyclical.
  5. Congrats! Sad to see you go but glad you tauced. Edit: dumb joke belies intent. You seemed like a majorly alright dude, so I'm happy for you and hope the job is fulfilling. Would be good to see you pop back in here at least on rare occasions, but if that doesn't happen then best wishes and take it easy.
  6. Keep having an awesome birthday, man. Karma says you've earned it.
  7. A bit off-topic, but speaking of GBA shmups, Iridion II has excellent tunes. Has one of, if not the, most rockin' title music ever. Seriously; Mega Man, eat your heart out. It's interactive, so, unfortunately, no one can be told what the title is. I'll be ecstatic if I can track down a copy for the going gamestop rate of two bucks; I'd pay that for the opening alone (the hilarious intro being a bonus). The gameplay seems decent/good too, if a bit easy. Isometric top-back to bottom-front scroller, in the vein of Axelay. Music seems good throughout. 80s vibe. Hat-tip to theX for the scoop on this one.
  8. Hard to tell from a preview, but this is sounding pretty bitchin'. Looking forward to it!
  9. Love the arrangement... great track, really brought to life with the live instrumentation. Should be one hell of a concert. Props. This also reminds me that I need to queue up stuff from Anime Remix more often.

  11. Daves' Theme. To clarify: the only requirement is that you be named Dave. I might be willing to bend the rules if you dedicate it to a Dave. 'Ode to K.B.' has a nice ring to it. This... what? HOW DARE YOU SULLY MY THREAD WITH WILD ACCUSATIONS ALSO CHANGE YOUR NAME AND REMIX THIS (this applies to everyone) No, see, Dave is the password for mixes. But while we're at it, psssssst Bob.
  12. Ha, yeah. First-person perspective dungeons? How early-80's nostalgic! Well color me ignorant: you can re-firmware that bad boy and play PS1 games. That explains some things. Tracking now. I suppose I should wish you potentially good gaming? I think Game & Watch has more frames of animation than Nathan Graves.
  13. Now you're just toying with me... Actually, I know you mean P1. That's one I'll never get around to, but the P1 cast has cameos in P2:IS and a decent hand in P2:EP, so if/when you play those you'll probably get a kick out of seeing them again (and catching inside jokes and such that rely on knowledge of their backstories). For instance, Mary's job in P2 is hilarious when you know what role she played in P1 (yes, I cheated and read a plot summary). Oh, hi thread. CV: Circle of the Moon. I seem to be taking a shine to these castletroids after all. Now, if I could just find a copy of AoS...
  14. You! Don't be so tetchy! Ok, I should have said "...even more enjoyable...". But you should know I don't have anything against the Persona series, and the PSP is hardly worse in screen size than other handhelds (they're all tiny!). And no, I don't have anything aside from that against handhelds. I was poking you for getting right back into the game you sank 100+ hours to beat! Enhanced remake or not, I can't imagine diving right back into weeks more of the same. Or, if you insist on Persona-ing, play P2:IS like I keep pushing!
  15. Is the game more enjoyable when you squint?
  16. Always excellent to hear when good things happen to a good guy. Hope you're able to keep doing the show in the way of your choosing and that you keep enjoying what you're doing, sephfire. I'm not trying to be cynical; making the jump from hobby to work has killed the enjoyment for a lot of people, so I truly hope you're able to avoid that and are able to continue doing exactly what you want to do. In other words, I hope this works out for you as awesomely as possible. From a selfish standpoint, I can hardly wait for the weekly episodes. Your videos are always well-researched, insightful, and fun, and now I'll be able to anticipate them every week! You've got a fan in me. And I hadn't heard about the Pixar gig until now, so congrats on that as well!
  17. I see what you did there. Since we've made it to the remixing community's equivalent of Godwin's Law, now we can move on. I haven't seen a favorites thread here in... well... ever, really. Unless you're counting the ones that get locked/deleted within the hour. I suppose you can interpret asking for songs that fit a mood or a situation as a veiled attempt at a favorites thread, since people are likely to provide their favorite songs that meet the given criteria; but the favorite aspect of it is an inevitable consequence, not the goal. The goal is to help someone find music for the occasion. The fact that people have preferences and some tracks will get recommended over others shouldn't overshadow the fact that you've helped someone/some people and, if you've actually looked through your collection in providing recommendations (or simply looked through others' recommendations), gotten something out of it yourself. That said, I don't see any problem with the remix threads that sprout up every now and again. I suppose they do usually turn into list-fests, but I don't see lists as bad in and of themselves. A discussion would be nicer, but a list isn't that unsavory a means to reach an end (a good end). I don't know if anyone was still interested in discussing the original topic, but if so, there you go.
  18. I was correcting you so you wouldn't again unintentionally insult someone in the armed forces by calling that person a brat. tidus is earning his. I was simply born. I honestly don't know how you read that how you did.
  19. Hear that. I went through several songs in that same manner. But I figured 'what the hell, the guy wants ocr recommendations, and I'd get a kick out of perusing my collection and seeing which ones might work, so let's do this'. Listener beware though, for sure. I quit the mp3-alarm deal once my computer got placed in a different room (read: once I got out of college and finally had more than one room), but prior to that I eventually settled on a song that I could wake up to everyday: . Getting rousted by such absurdity made it impossible to do anything but grin. I am/was an Army brat. tidus is in the Army. Big difference.

    14 new maps... as of three days ago. Sorry about the delay and the lack of trying to get another OCR room going: the Ace Combat addiction won over the Transformice addiction there for a bit. Also: bahahahahaahaha
  21. True. Or find a song that already does that (like Sacratus Bellator does, yes). Here are a few with building lead-ins that still pack a punch... OverClocked Spot: http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR01648/ Devastation's Doorway: http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR01611/ Agony Of Obscuration: http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR01179/ Full Of Courage: http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR02012/ Yellow Valkyrie: http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR01661/ Mark Of The Beatsmith: http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR01626/ Blue Lightning (kindofnotreally has a lead-in): http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR00464/ Electric Clouds (packs a groove, not a punch): http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR01092/ Nothing But A Pile Of Dance Moves (packs 'e' glowsticks): http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR01576/ Course, if you're like me and would rather jolt yourself awake, there's always... Wanderer On The Offensive: http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR01657/ Fight For Our Future: http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR01826/ Voices Broken: http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR01467/ El Lagarto: http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR01793/ Overflow: http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR01900/ Battle Rocks: http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR00970/ Bahahaha... Battle Rocks would be cruel. As an aside, since you like Under A New Moon, you might want to check out Fatty Acid's Double Tall Chrono Latte: http://chronofan.com/Black/VGM/Fatty_Acid_-_Double_Tall_Chrono_Latte(Chrono_Cross).mp3. Not a wake-up suggestion, just a good remix that was never submitted.

    What? Spam n-runes (c/v-runes probably work just as well) on an anchored board then add a few carefully placed n-anvils. Slinky anvil god. I only shammied a couple times, so that was just my initial reaction. No idea what other absurdity can be concocted.
