  1. Hey Everyone, Well, I finally got another reply back from Irategamer. I asked him what remix he was referring to, here on Ocremix.org, that he used as his intro music. It seems as though he either forgot my original question, or has more devious intentions, since he simply said to search for "Ghosts and Goblins". Taking his advice, I did search for Ghosts and Goblins here...downloaded the two available remixes for the NES game...and listened. Neither one had anything to do with the "intro" I asked for, but one -was- the clip used in the -middle- of his Ghosts and Goblins review. As for conveniently -not- answering my "intro music" question, it's clear that it's a remix of "Requiem for a Dream", though who made the remix is unknown to me. It has come to my attention that he is now selling DVD's of his reviews on his website, and that this intro is a part of those videos. I'm going to step out on a limb here and be the conspiracy theorist, by saying that it's probably not legal for him to use such a remix in a "product" that he makes profit from. I don't really care one way or another what he does with a 15 second blurb of music, but my theory does (possibly) explain his reluctance to answer my original question, in order to keep himself out of legal trouble. Who knows...more internet drama I guess. There's already so much ranting about him stealing content from AVGN that I can't keep up with all of it. These days, I try to steer clear of web drama since I just don't have the time to waste hours on 20 forums to see who is telling the truth and who is lying. I enjoy his videos for the most part, and thats basically why they were created. People disagree all the time...nothing new there. heh Thanks for the posts guys. Always enjoy a decent video game chat. An "Old School" Gamer, DKnight2066 -------- To: "about:blank" - Yea. I know Ocremix.org only hosts Fan-made content; no copyrighted material. At the time, I was going by what Irategamer told me, when he said it was a Remix and to come here to find it. Though as I said, he was very vague beyond that. To: "NZman" - Nope, not the Lemmings remix, but the one you hear for the first 15 secs or so on his latest videos. Search the net for the song "Requiem for a Tower" (AKA: Requiem for a Dream), listen to it, then compare it to the intro music you hear in the video URL I posted in my first post in this thread. Aside from different styling, it's identical.
  2. Greetings All, Been watching some of the game review videos made by Irategamer over at YouTube. I asked him what the intro music was that he used to this video: ...and he responded that I should come here. Unfortunately, he never took the time to actually tell me the NAME of the remix that he used as his intro music. I know that it sounds like "Requiem for a Tower", a remix of a piece by by Clint Mansell, but thats as much info as I have. I PMed Irategamer back asking him for a specific remix name, but i've gotten no response as yet. Any help on this would be most appreciated, as I did a search for "Requiem" and "Requiem for a Dream" and didn't come up with any accurate results. The original "Requiem for a Tower" was an amazing piece of music, and whatever this remix is that Irategamer uses sounds equally great. My thanks for any help on this. DKnight2066
  3. Salutations Everyone, A song that showed great promise, but had a disappointing ending. Everything up til 1:40 was awesome. The original score, revamped with new instruments, and sounding great. However...after 1:40...things just got too abstract for me. The overall sound wasn't anything like the original. It felt like I was listening to a different song in some parts. That aside, it is still an excellent remix attempt. My own personal preference is a remix which is more on-target with it's original score, but that's just me. If your in the market for the original tune, with a different takeoff halfway through, then this remix is for you. An "Old School" Gamer, DKnight2066
  4. Hi All, Lots of comments on this one already, but i'll add another for good measure: This is one of those "listen to late at nite, with all the lights off" kind of songs. As others have said, playing this in your car is definately enjoyable, but can have "speeding ticket" side effects. Not having listened to any bona-fide "trance groups", I don't know what the genre truly sounds like. That aside, this remix remains true to the original score but takes it to the next level with a faster pace and "spookier" instruments, which I liked. If your a fan of the Jenova Theme, then this is a must-have, in my opinion. Thanks for yet another "OCRemix playlist" worthy title. An "Old School" Gamer, DKnight2066
  5. Hello All, Yet another remix that took a classic song, ramped up the beat, and added a "spirit" that I cannot find words for. "Consistant", i think that befits this remix. It sets a pace and mood that has it's own life, but doesn't overshadow the original score. If your looking for a Gerudo Valley remix thats consistant and remains true to the original, but has it's own feel, then this is the song for you. Grats on a "playlist worthy" remix. (Side-Note: For those of you with a CreativeLabs MP3 player, or soundcard, listen to this using the Theater audio setting. The depth and echo....*shivers*)
  6. Greetings All, Not being a remixer myself, and not knowing the names of instruments and such, my comments will sound generic at best. This is a good example of a remix which takes a good song, adds something to it, but doesn't take away from the original. It sets a somber mood that befits it's title, and the part of the game from which it was taken. I really liked the ending with the original megaman theme excerpt thrown in. A VERY nice and "old school" touch, one I won't soon forget. If your looking to relive how you felt sieging the first Sigma Fortress stage...and seeing "zero's sacrifice" for the first time...then this is the song for you. Remix on my friend....
