  1. I've been waiting for this album for quite some time and I'm glad to see it finally released. Nice combination of updated versions of previously released mixes and some tracks new to Sophomore Year. I've wanted to be able to listen to Eye of the Trigger on my own time ever since the first time I saw OCU perform live. I was disappointed when the Super Mario Galaxy track was cut from the Spring Break DJ Set album, so that's another track on this album I was especially pleased to listen to. I actually had my one-and-a-half year old nephew dancing to it just this morning. This was a fun album to listen to and I hope to hear more from OCU again soon. Definitely check this album out.
  2. I'm a small-time Let's Player though I haven't released anything new in a couple months or so. So far I've mostly done classic RPGs like the SNES Final Fantasy games and Chrono Trigger, though I've also done the early Zeldas and some 2D platformers. I take a walkthrough approach to the RPGs, explaining the mechanics of the system and any battle strategies I know of for specific situations, etc. I also usually read dialogue and give the characters voices, admittedly to varying degrees of success, though I have gotten positive comments for it from time to time. I have some playlists linked in my signature but if anyone's interested in checking out my channel, the link is right here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC1Ek_bkrHSNhwS96nTVlX5Q

  4. Great episode guys! Stephen wasn't kidding when he told me at MAGFest that you guys had a lot to cram into this episode between 2016, MAGFest, and the 50th episode. Was cool seeing you guys speak at the OCR panel on Saturday. It's been quite a ride listening to you over the past 50 episodes and I look forward to tuning in for many more.
  5. Persona 5 is the big one for me. Also cautiously optimistic for Yooka-Laylee and Sonic Mania. And I definitely want to get Breath of the Wild when that comes out.
  6. Great to have you guys back! Loved the second half of the Spencer Nilson interview. The US version of the Sonic CD soundtrack was the first video game soundtrack I ever owned that I could listen to outside of the game itself (since you could play the music from the game disc) so it was pretty cool hearing a bit about how some of that music was conceived. I'm looking forward to hearing what gets submitted for next episode's playlist.
  7. I'm a bit behind on the podcast episodes. The first half of the Spencer Nilsen interview was among the better ones you've done so far, I'm looking forward to the rest of it. Pity I missed out on the playlist but SquarEvil submitted the track I was most likely to go with anyway so it worked out all the same.
  8. Epilogue: Dawn of a New Day And thus, the ReMix Role-Playing Competition 2016 has come to an end. Congratulations to our winner, Ghetto Lee Lewis, and to our runner-up, Ronald Poe! It has been quite a journey and I hope you’ve enjoyed it. I want to take some time to thank everyone who made this compo possible. I want to thank Darkesword for the feedback he gave me for this compo. Also thank you to DragonAvenger and OA for offering various suggestions and just listening to me go on and on about the compo long before it was even ready to launch. I want to give a special thank you to Odai for making all of the signature images for the compo, they certainly exceeded my expectations. And of course, I want to thank everyone who signed up and took part in the rRPC 2016. I know it didn’t go exactly as I had originally planned, but I hope it was still an enjoyable event for you all. Much like the first rRPC, this was a learning experience for me. In future compos, I will be sure to put greater thought into back up formats in the event of lower turnout. I’ll also try to dial back the complexity in some regards. If there are other things about the compo you think I could have done better, feel free to share your thoughts here or via PM if you prefer to keep it private. I appreciate any feedback I receive, whatever it takes to make the next compo I host better than it would be otherwise. It will probably be a while before I run another rRPC. I’m considering something new for my next compo. Something a bit simpler and more accessible to a larger number of ReMixers. That’s still on the drawing board and isn’t happening any time soon. That said, thanks again to everyone who took part in this compo in any way, whether you entered, voted, or just followed along. Thank you!
  9. Just a friendly reminder to check out and vote on our final mixes of the compo. I'm going to be out of town for the bulk of the day on Monday which is why I have the voting deadline so late. I'll be posting the epilogue and final results first thing in the morning on Tuesday.

    Voting for the final round of the ReMix Role-Playing Competition 2016 has begun. The finalists, Ghetto Lee Lewis (Leliana) and Ronald Poe (Xehanort) combined their sources with Master Porky's Theme from Mother 3 and now it is time for the people to determine which of them will defeat Porky and become the new champion of the rRPC. You may find a link to the mixes and cast your vote here. Thank you to everyone who took time to follow this compo.
  11. This poll is for determining the winner of the ReMix Role-Playing Competition 2016. On the Hero side, we have Ghetto Lee Lewis (Leliana), and on the Villain side, we have Ronald Poe (Xehanort). Both finalists must combine their theme with Master Porky's Theme from Mother 3 with the option of including their opponent's theme as well. You may download the Final Round mixes here. Please refrain from posting in this thread. If you want to post a review of the tracks for the round, please do so in a single post in the main thread for the rRPC 2016. You may vote for yourself in your own match ups. Please consider the quality of the arrangements when casting your votes, along with production value and your personal enjoyment of each mix. Voting will be open until midnight EDT on Monday, August 8th.
  12. The time has finally arrived. The Final Round is ready for download. Which of our finalists will be the one to take the title away from Porky? Vote on the winner here.
  13. Both finalists have sent in their entries. However, I am presently unable to download one of them. I have sent a message addressing that already and once that has been resolved, I will prepare the poll for the final round of the rRPC 2016.
  14. We're closing in on the final days. How are things faring with your mixes, Finalists?
  15. You should post that in the workshop forums and get some feedback from the mods there. I'd love to see this track posted as an official OCR mixpost someday.

    The Bonus Round of the ReMix Role-Playing Competition is open. Compo participants may take their character and/or party member theme and mix that with any of the sources that have come up during the compo (excluding the finalists' and Porky's Theme). There are no restrictions and collaborations are allowed as well. For those who did not sign up for the rRPC 2016, you are still allowed to participate in the bonus round. All you need to do is pick out a hero or villain theme that isn't already claimed by the participants, and combine that with any of the sources used during the compo. For more information, follow the link to the post in the compo thread.

    The Finals of the ReMix Role-Playing Competition 2016 have begun! Ghetto Lee Lewis (Leliana) and Ronald Poe (Xehanort) are not only pitted against each other, but also the character who won the first rRPC: Porky! Both finalists must combine their character theme with Master Porky's Theme from Mother 3, while also having the option to include each other's character theme as well. Who will defeat Porky and become the new reigning champion of the rRPC? The finals end at noon EDT on Monday, August 1st. For more details, follow the link to the compo thread.
  18. As for everyone else, your role in the ReMix Role-Playing Competition 2016 has concluded, but that does not mean you have to stop participating. While the finals are underway, there is an optional bonus round for everyone else. Participants of the rRPC 2016 may combine your character or party member theme (or both!) with any other source used in the compo excluding those used in the finals (Leliana, Xehanort, and Porky’s themes). This means you may use any character a participant signed up as, any party member theme, or any theme from the hero rounds, with no restrictions on the number of sources used. Collaborations are also allowed regardless of whether or not they signed up for the compo. In fact, this bonus round is open to everyone, regardless of whether or not you signed up for the rRPC 2016. If you did not sign up, all you need to do is pick an RPG hero or villain that is not already in use and combine that theme with at least one source involved in the compo. Please refrain from picking anyone that might reveal major spoilers to their games. Here’s a link to the spreadsheet with all the featured sources. Please send all entries to me (FenixDown) via PM on the forums with a link to a trustworthy hosting client (like Dropbox or Soundcloud) and I will download your mixes from there. I will only accept submissions sent in WAV format. Please do not send MP3s, I will encode the MP3s myself. All file names must be in the following formats: ReMixer - Mix Title (Your Character Name & Round Source/Other Character Name).wav Example: FenixDown - Tonedeaf Terra (Terra & Tone of the Town).wav Example: DarkeSword - Kefka Beckons (Kefka & Lavos).wav You may list up to three sources in the file itself, separating each character name or source title with an ‘&’. If you use more, list the most prominent sources in the file name and share the full list in the PM you send me to submit the track. If you collaborate with someone in your mix, include (feat. [Collabing ReMixer]) after ReMixer. Any bonus round submissions I receive before the finals close will be included in the download for the finals tracks. I do not intend to create a poll for bonus mixes, it’s purely just for fun. No one is obligated to participate in this bonus round, but if you’re interested and have the time, you are more than welcome to join in. The bonus round ends at the same time as the finals, presently scheduled at noon EDT on Monday, August 1st.
  19. Final Round: The True Mastermind Revealed It’s been a long journey, but at long last, the final showdown has arrived! Ghetto Lee Lewis and Ronald Poe are the finalists of their respective sides. And Master Porky (Pokey from Earthbound) has returned as the reigning champion of the first rRPC to defend his title. The match up for the finals is: Ghetto Lee Lewis (Leliana) and Ronald Poe (Xehanort) : Master Porky’s Theme (Mother 3) Both finalists must use the character they signed up with and Porky’s theme for this match. Each finalist does have the option of also using their opponent’s theme as a third source, but that is not required. The party system is not available during the finals so Mara and Nara/Meena and Maya and Neclord cannot be used in your mixes. If you use all three sources for your ReMix, list them in this order: [Your Character] & [Opponent’s Character] & Master Porky. The finals will be open until noon EDT on Monday August 1st. Best of luck finalists, the fate of the kingdom rests in your hands.
  20. You were the only one to send in a track before the deadline, Ronald Poe, and I'm trying to determine if anyone has music to send in to allow for a vote to determine the villain finalist. I sent out messages to the other villains to see if anyone has something ready to submit or not. I received one response so far that says no and if I don't hear back from the rest by tomorrow morning, I'm going to declare Xehanort as the villain finalist character and jump into getting the finals started. I will be sure to release Ronald Poe's track in a link in the opening post so people can still give it a listen (and Ronald, you are still welcome to post a link to your soundcloud for your round 2 entry I wasn't able to convert into an MP3). It's how it goes sometimes. Life happens, people get busy with important stuff. I don't want anyone feeling bad about not making this or any other deadlines, sometimes things can't be helped and I understand. Edit: Here is Ronald Poe's mix from round three: Villain Round Three
  21. Our Hero has been decided. Ghetto Lee Lewis (Leliana) will be going up against one of the villains in the final round of the rRPC 2016. Congratulations! And well done, Touchstone, for submitting a worthy track. Xenonetix and Garpocalypse's match ended on a draw. You both did a great job and I thoroughly enjoyed both entries so I honestly don't want to split the vote. I hope you find this conclusion satisfying. Thank you very much!
  22. I've only received one submission for villain round 3. Since this round is determining the finalist for the villain side, I would prefer to have a vote so if you have a track in the works, please send it in as soon as possible. Or at least let me know here or via PM that you do not intend to send one in.
  23. I finished reading Mechanical Failure last night and I highly recommend checking it out. It's hilarious. I don't do audiobooks very often but I'm seriously considering picking this one up so I can hear Joe's narration.
