  1. What's really neat is that they just released an homage to MST3K in the form of "Manos: The Hands of Fate," a videogame developed for the iOS that is in the style of an NES game. Not only does it look to Manos as the main form of inspiration, but enemies include killer shrews, Trolls from Nilbog, RoMan from "Robot Monster," the Giant Claw from the movie "The Giant Claw," and screaming skull enemies! It's a really fun game, you guys should check it out:

  2. New episode! It's Episode 19-Part 2 of June Is Boss Month!: http://www.cheshirecatstudios.com/GameJams/gamejams-episode-19-2.php

    I also took the liberty of using funds received by blip.tv from ads that were required by Blistered Thumbs, and sent them directly to OCR as a donation! I wanted to send the money to the people who truly deserve it! Ads aren't on anymore since I don't think BT really cares if they are on, but I just wanted to let you know!

  3. New episodes ahoy! This includes a serene trip into Chilltown, kicking ass and taking names in a heavy metal special, and possibly the best episode of GameJams yet!

  4. I made a Christmas-themed episode of my podcast last year, so maybe I can be of assistance by providing the playlist:

    Featured Remixes

    Super Mario World - "Super Mario’s Sleigh Ride" Remix by The OneUps, Nate Cloud, Mustin, Dale North

    William Wobbler - "A William Wobbler Christmas" Remix by Slow Poison

    Mario Kart 64 - "Holiday Frappe" Remix by Tweak

    Shadow of the Colossus - "Snowfall on Forbidden Lands" Remix by ceili, Sephfire

    Donkey Kong Country- "Chekan Winter" Remix by Prophecy

    Lufia 2: Rise of the Sinistrals - "Christmas In The Village (Silver Bells)" Remix by Dale North

    Portal - "Live from [sUBJECT HOMETOWN HERE]" Remix by the UMD Gamer Symphony Orchestra

    Ice Climber - "Snow Cone Heaven" Remix by Mazedude

    Sonic the Hedgehog 3 - "Snowboardin’ Sonic" Remix by Willrock

    Christmas NiGHTS - "MerryLittleChristmas" Remix by Dale North

    Not all of 'em are Christmas remixes of course, but I hope this helps a lot!

  5. I dunno. I know the project leaders hadn't formally requested permission for the project so it had to be cancelled, but surely they could regroup and try again with the progress they had already made.

    We were having a semi-contest of naming the album when it got shot down.

    So yes, more BK/BT please.

    Seriously? That blows, but let's hope the project reboots!

  6. Just like with Mattias Holmgren's remix "Dr. Wily Haunts Flashman," I am really impressed with how well willrock is able to mix two different songs seamlessly into one remix! With other tunes I find on here, sometimes it is jarring when the remixer chooses to alternate from one specific theme to another, but willrock's transitions are smooth and never awkward. I had both the Flashman and Tornadoman themes superglued to my brain from day one, so this high-energy mix does them justice! As others have said, I really enjoy how willrock gets right into the action, and that it is a nice mix of 8-bit and electronica instrumentation! If this had been a straight-up electronica or rock remix, I don't think it would have been as enjoyable as what we have now, so well done dude!

  7. Tonight we're hitting the high seas with remixes from "The Secret of Monkey Island", "Uncharted Waters 2," and "Reset Generation!"

    Note: Until I edit this in the episode, please accept my apology - I accidentally credited the "TEEM.ROKIT" remix in the episode's audio to TJ Nekko when it should have been credited to tweek. Ah, the life of a tired student :sleepdepriv:

  8. Hey there, OCR! I'm here to let you know that I have a podcast featuring OCRemixes from this site called GameJams, a bi-monthly show where people get to request the songs that they really want to hear! It's a bit of a fan project that I love doing, and I want to share the work of the talented people here with anybody who will listen!

    The show is also now a feature on the websites BlisteredThumbs and ThatGuyWithTheGlasses, so hopefully I'll get to spread the word about your kickass work and great remixes!

  9. Hey there, OCR! I'm here to let you know that I have a podcast featuring OCRemixes from this site called GameJams, a bi-monthly show where people get to request the songs that they really want to hear! It's a bit of a fan project that I love doing, and I want to share the work of the talented people here with anybody who will listen! I'd also like to try and get remixers from this site for interviews to share how they birth their awesome creations, and remixer zircon was gracious enough to give me a shot for the first interview! Of course, full credit is provided to the remixers in both the audio segment, and the music videos that I make for these remixes!

    However, I also posted this thread because I have a bit of a quandary: a gaming site called Blistered Thumbs (an affiliate of "ThatGuyWithTheGlasses.com") contacted me because they are interested in featuring the podcast on their site, and naturally I'd like to try and expand the audience so the awesome tunes of OCR can reach more people. However, they have a policy about putting advertisements somewhere in the video, and I would personally not like to do that because it would feel wrong to profit off of the work that you guys worked so hard to make:

    See I worry that if I allow a No ad video on the site that people might want that to become the standard and everyone that puts hard work into their own shows will be seen negatively because they earn money for their content and display ads to keep their

    shows running - its more about standardizing things.

    While I definitely understand that they need the ad revenue, since some contributors make this website their full-time job, this is a hobby for me, and I would not feel it moral or appropriate to get paid for something I did not directly make myself, you know what I mean? I want to keep it non-profit so that I can just help spread the word on great remixes by great remixers!

    With that said, may I also have input on this problem?

    Thanks for the time, guys, and have a great night!
