  1. It's been about 5 years since "Esther's Dreams" came out, and I'm wondering, since I'm now a father myself, if there's any other music that would fit in the same vein, that maybe I missed. I was putting together some chiptune stuff for a potential child (and my own peaceful times), but sorta fell of the scene shortly after the aforementioned album released. I'm open to suggestions, OCR, original game music, or otherwise.


    For starters, I've already thought of Zelda's Lullaby, and still have the chiptune playlist, but I don't have much access to a computer these days. I know if I can get in-game suggestions, I have the chip formats of most older (ps1 and prior) games on my phone and tablet. Thoughts?

  2. I had a fun thought a couple days ago, as I wondered what folks would think as far as using remixes from OCR, VGMix (rip), and the like as "mood music". I'm pretty sure there's enough variety at this point that we could have quite the diverse settings available. l

    For example, I recently perused the site for driving music, specifically looking for remixes of music from various driving/flight sim games.

    we also have some pretty chill tunes that would work for relaxation or dinner music.

    We've talked internally about doing site-hosted playlists of music in the OCR catalog. I've had a lot of ideas about this. It's definitely on the radar, but right now there's a lot of backend work that needs to be done to facilitate this.

    That would be awesome! If it ever comes to fruition, I'd love to beta test it, if you open that option!

    Rainwave.cc has dedicated streams for OC ReMixes, non-OCR arrangements, VGM soundtracks, and chiptunes. Enjoy! :-)

    I actually listen to RainWave on occasion, and it's pretty cool, but I'm wanting something where I can set-up playlists that play only the songs I want to hear, and not have to listen to songs that I may not want to listen to at a given moment.

    Say, for example, I want to listen to some "Nintendo slow jams" as I'm settling into bed for the night. Or want some heavier music for a long drive. RainWave, while it might play some of those things, won't necessarily play them at the "appropriate time".

    Hopefully, you know what I'm reaching for here.

  5. I'm wondering if anyone has considered -- or knows of --  a service, akin to Spotify or Pandora, that has music from OCRemix, VGMix, DoD, and the like, as well as original game music. If not, does anyone know how to set one up? And would it even be worth the effort?


    I'm curious what everyone thinks about the idea.

  6. I had a crazy idea at work yesterday, and I kinda want to see if someone could pull it off. This music as as played by Kenny G, if he joined Dead Kennedy's, Suicidal Tendencies, Primus, or the like. Any takers? Lol.

    Another thought I had with this was a sort-of rap battle between the O.C. Plaid Missions and the One-ups. Not with lyrics, but with the brass...

    As ridiculous as this sounds, it is a serious request.

    It's an original, fake RPG song by that person Liontamer linked, M.S. As the animation says at the bottom, the title is just "An Encounter."

    Sweet! Just curious, how did you end up finding this, @CHz? I notice the base URL is archive.org, but from what I can tell, It's through the "Wayback Machine". Teach me, Great Master! :ph34r:

  8. Correct me if I'm wrong [as in, post a reply below], but I don't think there's any Flamenco or Mariachi-styled remixes on OCR, so I'd like to get some more if we can. They're fairly lively styles that would add a little bit of diversity to the collection [and it'd be fun to play some OCR for a Cinco De Mayo party, or a quinceanera or some other Hispanic and/or Italian celebrations [being a bit of an American Caucasian "mutt", I don't really know what all is out there.].

  9. This idea sort of came to me at work last night, and it seemed kinda like a fun concept. Essentially, if one could play this:

    In the style of "My Sharona":

    ...or at least with that bassline style...


    Seems like it'd be a fun one to try...

  10. Quote
    A tribute to American composer Alexander Brandon, this remix takes sounds and inspiration from a variety of sources, including Hunz, Skaven, Laxity, Sting, and yes, oddly enough, even Marilyn Manson (hence the title).

    I can definitely hear the Manson influence. Not so sure about anything else (I'm not really catching the Sting, and I've never even heard of Hunz, Laxity or Skaven before today...)

    That aside, I really enjoy this piece! I may add this to my chillax playlist or my work shuffle. Hard to call there, as it sort of "rides the line" in my book, but that's not necessarily a bad thing!

    I tried to recruit for a NG album a year or two ago.  Wasn't a ton of interest.

    Seriously? Those games were classics in their own time! I mean they were big enough that the trilogy got a snes port! I'm pretty surprised!

  12. I think classic NG hasn't really gotten a lot of love from this community. Sure, there's a ton of covers of "Ashtar's Theme", and "The Parasprinter", but that's just a couple songs. Maybe we could get a collab album of all three games** together? I think it could be rather awesome!

    **The main reason I suggest doing all three as one album, is because there's a considerable amount of overlap between them. At least to my recollection. (May be time for a re-listen...)

  13. I'm not sure if I'm in the right forum, or if anyone knows about this, but DreamHost links seem to be down:



    Not Found

    The requested URL /files/music/remixes/Crash_Bandicoot_2_Cortex_Strikes_Back_The_Wrath_of_Tiny_OC_ReMix.mp3 was not found on this server.

    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

    I get this with any of the links to DreamHost

  14. First off, I apologize if this is in the wrong section, but it seemed the most appropriate place. That out of the way...


    Fun little idea I had:

    Anytime, while browsing OCR, I've noticed that (at least, while I'm on) the mascots never (or very, very, very rarely) show for a remix from their respective games. So, I thought we could make a fun little game out of it! Essentially, any time you DO get a match, take a screenshot and post it below!
