  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. So it wasn't written for people who are interested in pursuing game music info. It was written just to please the fans. They should realize there's more to vgm than Koji Kondo and Nobuo :smile:.

    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. DSP-1 is not a sound chip. Pretty sure you mean SPC700. Anyway, your article has too much Nintendo/Square and very little from others. There are plenty of great music soundtracks you probably never heard (not only from other systems, but also from the SNES itself). Don't expect to make informative guides without a careful research.

    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. 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.


    PS: This is our OC Remix of the week, and instant nomination for OC Remix of the Year

  6. 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?

  7. I'm dying to see some of the artists on the site & others who create the music live.

    In order to do this I was wondering if there was interest in this idea, and who would want to go/help in creating this awesome event?

    I get the feeling I'm not alone, and I think we could pull off something pretty big.



  8. Hi,

    My name is Will and I've been a fan of this site for most of it's existence, and at this point I feel like I can start to give back to the community, so I'll be headed to the WIP page after this.

    Shameless plug:

    I currently run a video game music tribute show each week called the 8bit Extravaganza.

    If you are interested in the idea we're looking for help and critiques as well!

    Thanks again for all the great work over the years and I hope to contribute!
