  1. It all depends on what you are looking for. Do you want in-ear monitors? Over the ear monitors? Headphones? Is comfort important? +++ But to be honest with you: you won't ever get a good pair for 50$. If you want something with really good sound and quality you should aim for 100$+ I've been through several IEMs, and I simply got tired of bad sound. Then I bought Monster Beats Tour <3 The best quality I've ever had and the company is extremely serious. If you have questions, you can talk to a representative and you'll get detailed and good answers. But on the other side, you have an iPod, and it has crappy sound without an amp, so it's not worth buying too expensive a pair of IEMs for it. It's the truth - if you want sound quality without having to buy a portable amp (oh the horror and extra weight), stay away from Apple. Head-Fi is a really good source for solid reviews: http://www.head-fi.org/ Lifehacker & Gizmodo: How to Choose the Perfect Pair of Headphones: http://lifehacker.com/5800772/how-to-choose-the-perfect-pair-of-headphones
  2. Fewer characters means less choice means less chance for success. I'd be happy if there was more than 30 characters and the game was balanced enough (no exploits or certain characters who always have the best chance of winning) EDIT: I agree with you, PriZm. It's as much about the players as the characters themselves to a certain point. Even though Maxi has short range and combos which have big, punishing openings, I feel that I can use him well enough to kill a friend of mine who's very good with Hilde. "TAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAKE THIS!" Totally off-topic:
  3. I just bought Donkey Kong Country 3 Advance yesterday. The temptation was too big, since the game has a totally new soundtrack - it wasn't too expensive either I'm going to play through it and enjoy the new music, trying to forget the old tracks so I can judge the new ones for the quality and not just compare them. C'mon guys! Get it done I'm dying of anticipation here! xD
  4. Want the best prices? Buy something from Acer. The TimelineX series is excellent. It's stuffed with bloatware, I know, but just clean the HDD and re-install Windows and you've got yourself a nice laptop I have a TimelineX 5920GTX and am very happy with it. At least here in Norway, Acer has the best specs within the price ranges they are in. If you want the PC with the best build quality out there, go for a Sony Vaio. They look very good, are tough, have good specs, but are expensive. If you want to tweak your laptop as much as possible, I suggest you Google for a company which builds custom laptops in your respective country.
  5. 'ello! My name's Stig Andre (translates to manly wanderer/ pilgrim. YARRR! MANDY MAN!), aka. StigtriX and I'm Norwegian. I love many genres of games and I have a soft spot for SNES games. Favourite games/ game series: - Donkey Kong Country (The original trilogy <3 ) - Super Mario (especially Super Mario World and Super Mario World 2) - Mario Kart (especially Super Mario Kart 64 and DS) - The Legend of Zelda (especially A Link to the Past, Ocarina of Time and Wind Waker) - World of Warcraft (I like pre-Wrath of the Lich King the most) - Guild Wars (Prophecies FTW!) - Battlefield 1942 and 2 - Unreal Tournament (99) - the best gameplay! - Max Payne - Castlevania (especially Portrait of Ruin and Symphony Of The Night) - Street Fighter (especially Super Street Fighter II Turbo) - Tekken (especially 3 and 5) - Contra/ Probotector (especially Contra III/ Super Probotector) Music: - AC/DC - KISS - ZZ TOP - Huey Lewis & The News - Dire Straits - Ian Anderson - Dimmu Borgir (Norwegian Metal FTW!) - Datarock - a-ha - Michael Jackson - OC ReMix - OH YEAH! +++ (yeah, my taste is very wide spread ) Movies: - To Kill a Mockingbird - The Pink Panther (Not the Steve Martin ones or the Trail of the Pink Panther) - Lethal Weapon - Die Hard - Batman - Batman Begins - The Dark Knight - Spider-man - Back to the Future - Ghost Busters - Steven Seagal movies (for the cheezyness and a good laugh) Anime and manga: - Naruto - Bleach - HunterXHunter - Deathnote - Akira - Dragon Ball - One Piece Favourite position: - ... HEY! WAIT A MINUTE!... This is not a dating site? Thanks for all the great music here at OC ReMix. I will try to get better at FL Studio, so maybe I can make something at one point
  6. Sweet track, Jewbei! Loved the leads, melody ^^ I, myself, would have liked the song even more if there was a solo guitar subtly in the background in the beginning, becoming more and more noticeable and doing more and more harmonies, then suddenly burst out in wicked solos like melody did, then go back to being subtle (then repeat the cycle with small variations). Maybe more in the style he does from ca. 70% into the jam he posted(when the tracker is above the "a" in "Download Track")
  7. TMNT IV: Turtles in Time Leo Don Raph Mike Leo2 Don2 Raph2 Mike2 Mike3 EDIT: Re-did the avatars and added a lighter blue background so it's easier to see Leo's bandana. EDIT2: Added new versions of the TMNT IV avatars with coloured backgrounds. LT: Don't need the small versions, but the recolored backgrounds for the existing ones look sweet!
  8. Nice!^^ The arrangement really sounds good without the intro of the original track. Love the percussion, reminds me of soundtracks for films about war. I would love another instrument to be included, maybe a grand piano for harmonies after the first part with percussion? Just a suggestion
  9. Indeed. The soundtrack of Tekken 6 felt so rushed and repetitive.
  10. Added Technodrome - The Final Shell Shock (Super Shredder) and added some detail to the slime on the cover. Please tell me if I've missed a track
  11. Poor guy... Is it getting too cold with that metal helmet of yours?
  12. Agreed, mate! I honestly see no reason for it being so hard, especially in a game where the nature and surrounding are very important, it's unacceptable.
  13. Can someone please make a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV: Turtles in Time remix album? This game has arguably one of the best soundtracks on SNES, and still we only have two remixes with low file quality. Sewer Surfin' is a radical track and kicks shell, but it's unfair that only one of the other tracks is given a remix here at OCR. Please make FLAC files (priority) and mp3 320kbps. Cover concept TRAKCS: Intro (Turtle Power) Select Turtle The Lady of Liberty Vanishes Big Apple 3 AM Alleycat Blues Sewer Surfin' The Technodrome Appears Technodrome - Let's Kick Shell! Going Up Shredder's Trump Card Turning Back the Clock Prehistoric Turtlesaurus Skull & Crossbones Bury My Shell at Wounded Knee Neon Night-riders Starbase - Where No Turtle Has Gone Before Technodrome - The Final Shell Shock (Super Shredder) Signing Off (Ending) Bouncing Back (Continue) Bummer (Game Over) Climatic Battle (Boss Theme All Clear (Cowabunga) I have not included the tracks for the VS Mode because they are not that important. Feel free to add them too though. COWABUNGA! And thanks!
  14. No different than in Twilight Princess. It is just less visible in that game because of the unnecessary amount of bloom etc. EWWW! Vegetation has as good as always been the weakness of design in games : /
  15. Got to love the art direction! I don't care about what people say, it looks awesome to me! Why make a "realistic" version on Wii when the system is not capable of HD and advanced shaders etc. ? Wait for Zelda on Project Café/ Wii2/ Nintendo Stream for that. The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess looked a bit washed out. For comparison: Twilight Princess Skyward Sword They should set right-handed as standard because most people are right-handed, but they should also include the option to make Link left-handed. That way, everyone will be satisfied
  16. I really hope Nintendo makes the first, true HD console. Almost no games on PS3 or Xbox 360 are in native 1080p, they're just up-scaled and that's not the same ' The few games in 1080p are small or not complex, because the consoles simply lack the power to run complex games in such a high resolution. It's cheap to write 1080p on the boxes when the true meaning of it is that the game can be shown in 1080p mode(not to be confused with real 1080p).

The best game so far, as I see it, is F-ZERO GP Legend. It really was LEGEN... Wait for it....... DARY: LEGENDARY!.
  17. 10$ in I'll give more soon, because you deserve it! Hey DarkSim! Norwegian here too! ^^ I live in Røyse, Buskerud atm. I've been in Bergen. It's a very nice place and has a lot of wonderful artists, like Datarock.
  18. I guess I'll give up on FLAC on my J3. I can't hear the difference between 320kbps mp3 and FLAC anyway (almost no one can). It's best to store files in FLAC though, as it's the easiest format to convert and it's lossless compressed. But thanks for the help, mate
  19. I just wondered... Is there something special you do with your flacs? Some of your albums won't play all of the songs on my Cowon J3 music player. Albums with errors: Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix Soundtrack - The song Flying Heaven (Fei Long Stage) freezes the player DKC2: Serious Monkey Business - The songs Monkeys Disarm Their Kremlings, Simian Soirée and Paleolithic Park freeze my player. Pokémon: The Missingno Tracks - The song The Mighty Mighty Pokémon freezes my player They play fine on my PC, but my player is picky when it comes to flac quality. I have no problems with the Castlevania album or any of the albums I have ripped to flac myself. Neither do I have problems with any other format.
  20. Love your remixes, mate!

    Would you by any chance have a higher quality version of

    Donkey Kong Country Industrial Fear OC ReMix ?

    I would really love to listen to that awesome piece in a quality which does it justice ^^

  21. Hehe! I'll go for "Mode 7" as the name then. I didn't notice that it was used already as I don't like Sonic games that much. It reads more like a project because I have been very specific The cover art was just something I did for fun. It's not the quality I'm concerned with, it's the lack of tags with WAV. I hate it. Of course the quality of the arrangement and mix is most important.
