  1. I didn't know you were here at OCR, been listening to your stuff for a while, and this last album does not disappoint. Loving it, specially Gutsman theme
  2. Big fan of RockLeeSmile, a cool, humble guy who uploads daily videos of him trying out various indie games and he also does some LPs (Spelunky, MTG, Rogue Legacy and a few more). Pretty sensible dude, I really enjoy his style.
  3. I can't wait until they make another of the Red Wedding scene.
  4. I was about 9 when I played it, scary stuff
  5. Mandatory: completely remove this scene from FFX Yeah, you know which one I'm talking about
  6. While well edited and full of clear examples, I don't think the whole 23 min video added anything new that we didn't know. Yes, the concept of "damsel in distress" is overused. Does it sell?, probably yes, to the majority of the audience at least. So why trying to 'fix' something that already works?, we're talking about big companies, not moral enterprises, most of the writers working there on games stories are probably given a template they have to fulfill, so that doesn't give them much of a choice anyway. The concept is simple and really easy and lazy to implement, and in the end, it kind of works. So I don't see it changing anytime soon.
  7. Edited my post, thanks for the quote!
  8. The game's really fun for now, although sadly there's no save feature
  9. mandatory. I love how calm and cold this track is, I had no idea of what Mother 2 was but as soon as I heard it on some online game music broadcast so many years ago I instantly realized it had to be a snow themed track and fell in love with it. what's not to love?, nostalgia is probably speaking for me on this one. Contrasted with the track above, I like how optimistic this track sounds and I certanly love the bass. I guess the rest is the combination of the music + background, that somehow always warped me into the game when I was a kid
  10. Hey everyone!, after around 8 years of lurking I finally decided to make a thread, and today I come to you with a request, especially after getting seriously bashed on /v/ by uneducated close minded people. Here's the deal, I'd like to make a playlist of both Overworld themes and Battle themes to listen while playing Guild Wars 2, but there's just so many tracks to select from I could really appreciate some help. Basically, I'm done with western orchestral music, as much as I love it and admire artists like Jeremy Soule, I grew tired of the genre, and even if GW2 has some brilliant OST, I'm looking for some variety. My preferences?, mostly oriented to Motoi Sakuraba style (but not limited to him), played Valkyrie Profile 2 and listened to Eternal Sonata OST and I absolutely loved both, they have some really immersive overworld tracks as well as battle ones. So that's basically it, I could use some recommendations , in case there's a similar thread or this is not the correct forum for this topic, notify me and I'll try taking care of it. Thanks in advance!!

Personally, I'm wet and waiting already.

    Cube world

    I don't really think this looks anything like Minecraft. Even if the environment is represented in cubes, this one seems to focus more on combat with RPG elements while Minecraft is based on creativity and construction. They certainly tried to refine combat in the adventure patch, but I still don't really think it's that competent or enjoyable as it could be. I'll keep an eye on this one, looks sweet and seems to have some nice background music
