    2. Maybe; Depends on Circumstances
  1. Personally I came to ocremix for Contra, Ice Hockey, Baseball Stars, and many other NES games. That is what got me in the door. From there many sites like this and zophar have expanded my horizons to all other genres. While it's true that the article is heavy on the SNES, you've gotta think that most people who are just getting into the scene have played it. So it's a really good way to get people in the door to the scene. That is what the article (first part mind you) is all about. It's a guide to the realm that is video game music. First step is turning the door handle, not YOU MUST LISTEN TO THIS UNDER-RATED SOUNDTRACK!!!!
  2. I think the point of the article is something that you are missing. It IS written for people who are interested in pursuing video game music info. Remember they are n00bs who don't know where to go. It's an introduction to the video game music community..... I guess since the article didn't get into under-rated video game soundtracks just yet then it's worthless. Yes that must be it.
  3. Nintendo & Square were used on purpose since they have some of the biggest and most loyal fanbases. Keep in mind this is an article written for people who are not immersed in the video game music realm. The people looking for more info on the scene is the audience of this article. Regarding the SNES sound chip, the chip mentioned in the image caption is actually a sound chip on the SNES. Anomie's S-DSP Doc outlines how sound is made on the SNES.

  4. Our interview with Halc about this project is up, and you can hear the full length Jewbei track right after the interview. Site Post: http://www.8bitx.com/wptest/2010/07/the-speed-of-sound-live-interview-full-length-track/ Podcast: http://feeds.feedburner.com/8bitx/ Episode - Sound of Speed Techno Night
  5. I've heard Mega Man 2 done in every possible way, from heavy metal to 2000bpm techno drum n bass. Sixto Sounds comes through here with a true remix, something so familiar for the first 2 mins, a song that would stand on it's own as being one of the best. Then the song transitions to show that this is just the tip of the iceberg. The rest of this song was a compliation of changes in pacing & tempo, you truly were at the mercy of Sixto on this one. This song rocks. -Will PS: This is our OC Remix of the week, and instant nomination for OC Remix of the Year

  11. Hey Darke,

    Sorry I wasn't aware about the no vs threads.

    Thanks,

  12. Oh I really want to know what everyone thinks!! See personally I loved both games but I really think that Super Mario World takes the win here, but I really really want to get a feel of the overall community since I know these games are beloved. These battles are always hard it's like picking a favorite child to me. SO, if you had a gun to your head who would it be?
  13. Which is the better game in your opinion? I say Super Mario World because of it's immense replay value, overall visual appeal, and the fluid gameplay. Thoughts? The question will be answered during the next round of the 16 bit tournament held on www.8bitx.com
  14. I was wondering what you have for your shoutcast setup? I run the show the 8bit Extravaganza (www.8bitx.com) through shoutcast off of my box at home. Just curious of your new setup. Do you have any podcasts of your show? -Will
