    The Best Video Games of This Decade

    Xenoblade Chronicles, without a doubt.
  2. I would like to try To The Sun.

    Madoka Magica cover - "Make a Wish"

    Yeah, it was definitely fun to sing because the melody has a lot of movement in an otherwise mellow song. Thank you both for taking the time to listen and provide feedback!

    Madoka Magica cover - "Make a Wish"

    Thank you so much! I'm glad you liked it. Thanks a lot! I think he did a great job too. And ahh, I can totally understand that, though - it's kind of a heavy show. I couldn't stop thinking about it after I finished the series for the first time. Sorry about the unintended effect! Whoops, I hope we didn't make it too sad for everybody... ^_^;
  5. I covered "Sis Puella Magica!" from the anime Puella Magi Madoka Magica for An Overclocked Christmas Vol. XI. I recently made some tweaks, and along with a video my husband put together - which shows scenes from the anime - I uploaded the (hopefully) final version to YouTube. I arranged it in a folk style not unlike the original. So, I sang the vocals and played the harp, hammered dulcimer, Irish bouzouki, and recorder. I had fun arranging this song and I think the video is very fitting, so I thought I would share this improved version. Enjoy.

    Too many projects in general

    I might need to take Mazedude's excellent advice. I especially relate because I also have a family and a full-time job, so my only time to work on music is at night (usually after 8-9 PM) and pockets of time on the weekends. So, I've been doing the opposite - staying up late. And it works okay, because I am generally NOT an early riser. However, I think it could be worth a shot to see if I feel more energized and productive by getting up earlier as opposed to staying up until after midnight. The whole idea of finishing something I've started as opposed to cycling through different projects without completing anything is something I've been continuously working on, and something I really was never any good at until well into adulthood. Interestingly enough (and this is just how it worked out for me), taking a break from music for a few years and raising my son has actually re-energized me, so I'm a much more disciplined and focused person than I ever was before. So while I have less time than I used to for noodling around on instruments or working on projects, I'm much more efficient and productive with the time I do have. I finally figured out that the joy of finishing a project helps carry me through the day-to-day challenges of actually keeping my commitments and doing the not-so-fun stuff sometimes. It's a wonderful feeling!

    Chrono Cross Remix Project - submitted!

    Yeah, I'm hoping to submit my mix too. It'll be my first official submission! I can't wait to hear everybody's mixes!

    (ALL TRACKS COMPLETE) The Anime Remix Album: 1st Edition

    I'd be happy to offer female vocals, Celtic harp, piano, hammered dulcimer, and ethnic percussion should anybody need it! If I think of a song that fits the album's theme (I just keep thinking of music from anime, not necessarily the game spinoffs), I'll pitch something too. I'm excited for this!

    OverClocked ReTreat

    That first example you posted was neat because it had a variety of rooms and even a couple "apartment" type areas. Is the TX place like that too or is it just single rooms and such? Just curious in case it pans out.

    OverClocked ReTreat

    Yeah, if this happens I would be interested, but it does also depend on cost and location for me. I have a husband and young child, so I'll need to wait for the specifics so I can plan for myself accordingly.

    OverClocked ReTreat

    Yeah, I'm definitely interested. That sounds like fun!

    An OverClocked Christmas v.XI

    Thank you for dreaming up the idea and working on making it happen!

    An OverClocked Christmas v.XI

    Yay! Thanks so much for your efforts in making this happen, and congrats to everyone for contributing. Can't wait to listen to it at the event later!
  14. I love this! I agree with Gario, I love that organ. Poppy indeed. I could really imagine hearing it over the speaker system at Shinra HQ. In fact, I just imagined this replacing the battle music while you're at Shinra HQ and it made me smile. It manages to be so different from the original while still being so fitting. I like the abrupt start too, since the original also starts that way.

    Upcoming Final Fantasy player - what game should I play first?

    Have fun! I replayed FFX a couple years back and enjoyed the heck out of it. I honestly forgot how great the game really was! It's a ride! If you pick FFVI back up again, it's totally worth it. That sequence can be tricky if you're not already used to the game mechanics.
