  1. Hmm...


    Track by track so far.


    Ok, so I'm a sucker for the Prelude. (Preludematsude)


    Not bad (The Last March)


    Blends into the background well as I work (Revival)


    Wait... that's Final Fantasy VIII!? Oooooooo. (Rebel Dream)


    *sees song title pop up* I do like a good song title that makes me giggle... Also win. (Leon is a Fucking Dick)


    *hears "By our planets combined* Hah... :) (garLACTUS Win)


    I can see myself humming along... and this getting stuck in my head. (Deuces)


    And that's where I'm at now.

  2. Welcome to the world I'm currently living in re: the R/S remakes.

    Makes me feel very old that they're making remakes to Ruby/Sapphire. I can't believe it's been eleven years since they were originally released. Admittedly, though, if I owned a 3DS, I'd probably pick up copies of the games.

    Still waiting on dat FFVII remake...

    Also I felt old when FR/LG came out and that was what, 8 years ago when I was 17?

  3. Both, obviously.

    Affordability... tho if I don't stay in London I could come up on the Saturday, unless I make any birthday plans with the family/missus.

    Does give me an idea for a present tho lol.

    If it had been during holidays, I would have tried to come and join.

    There is also an element of this; But that would only affect staying in London (as I work in a school I can only really book time off during half terms etc,)

    I shall ponder this and make a decision sometime soon.

  4. Not following what you mean about staples of 8/16 bit. What I'm getting at is that the source material is about a minute and a half long, but this mix (and its predacessor) focuses on the first 14 seconds of that source material. Additionally, that 14 seconds is really just 3 or so seconds repeated four times. The rest of the song has great melodies, but they have little focus in this mix. I'm a big fan of those melodies, which is why I do not personally enjoy this mix's approach.

    This mix is definitely a huge production improvement over his old one, So the remixer deserves mad props for that. It just retains the aforementioned approach that personally turns me off to it.

    Ok, basically, I was stating that back in the era of gaming GSH is from due to equipment limitations and other reasons most tracks were probably just 15~20 seconds of stuff before it was looped over anyway, but, having reflected on it, and re-listened to other tracks from a variety of sources I think I was barking partially up the wrong tree.

    Personally, I think Malcos has done pretty amazingly with what source there is with this track, but, bare in mind it's probably been 14~16 years since I played GSH (which was when I was like 8) and so my memory probably can't remember the original... so I may have to do a YouTube hunt and get back to you again.

  5. Nick, I disagree. It's sometimes hard to go back to an old remix and have another crack, hence why it's very rarely done. And forgive me if I'm wrong, you've just listed everything that's rather staple in most VGM I've heard, particularly of the 8/16 bit eras?

    That aside, my thoughts on Malcos' 2nd take. It's >better< than the first in terms of technical skill. Personally I like both equally because they offer two sides of the coin. The original is more of a relaxing jaunt done in a more cautious style, whilst the new mix fits in with the overall theme of "Be Aggressive" because it's pretty much the polar opposite of the original. Props to the mixer for both.

  6. Yeah, 8's OST was pretty amazing. To see it in anything other than more heavy rock and borderline progressive tones would be interesting...

    Get IX and III out of the way (with some of the V project done) and maybe, but the list of current projects in works is long and people can only do so much, so I'm happy to wait.

  7. I'm just a FFIX freak,

    Well I'm a VII freak, but in general the music from all the games up to IX, and the OCR albums have been amazing...

    I mean, considering the themes, I can see VIII being a belter...

    Tho VI > VII despite my love for FFVII, OCR album wise.

    But IX could be a monster...

    So much eager.

  8. When exactly did the fuggin' horadrim suddenly suck hard enough to get offed in droves by one dude? These are the same dudes who (almost) singlehandedly bitchslapped the prime evils.

    I don't get it

    Because PLOT STICK.

  9. Ben Affleck is a good actor. Look at The Town and Good Will Hunting. Or Dogma.

    As much as I love View Askew, and Dogma, I don't think Affleck was good in the movie. Better than Damon, but nothing stand out. Jason Lee however stood out for me. Shame he went on to become Dave...

  10. As an MTG player for half my years (12) I do find it difficult sometimes to get into other card games, although I did play LOTR for ages until my best friends decided to buy the shop out of cards and obliterate everyone and make it no fun anymore. (Same old story in MTG at times but there is always some way to win with older cards where as you couldn't in LOTR)

    If, it runs differently from WoW TCG, I may try it. I didn't like that so much. If not, feh. I have Magic 14 on Steam and Theros is out just round the corner...

    That and BloodBowl.

  11. See, when he did Daredevil, I was like "Ok, that's fine, Daredevil isn't that great a Marvel character anyway."

    But now I'm like "Hmm... so DC want Batman to die again, after managing to keep him alive under Bale... well good job I prefer Marvel anyway."

    I still haven't seen the Super-duper-pooper-scooper Man film yet.

  12. I'm really excited.

    * Between +10 levels worth of skills/passives, inevitable rebalancing, and legendary skill affixes, we should see a huge proliferation in viable builds. I'm actually pretty surprised at how many viable builds there are in the game right now due to monster power and more density in the earlier acts.

    * New loot system in terms of drops, enchanting, rerolling affixes, etc. sounds really good.

    * "Loot runs" should satisfy people's desire for totally random stuff. Again between this and the existing density changes in 1.08, it will be viable to farm pretty much anywhere and in any way you want.

    * The 'smart drop' system + enchanting/rerolling + crafting = more worthwhile and easier to craft/find stuff than use the AH.

    * Paragon 2.0 sounds really good for character customization that people have been really wanting (customize your stat points, utility and so forth).

    SirNuts what problems do you think it's not addressing?

    Welp. Blizzard are getting some money from me again after all...

    Just when I thought I've escaped their clutches and killed the WoW addiction xD

  13. Two tracks down, onto Vaporeon... BITE is an amazing track. Might have to add this onto my iPad summer track list. The whole EP.


    From the four mirrors for the ZIP files (MP3 + ART only), only the last works.

    That's funny as I used the first one and it was fine for me.
