  1. This project needs more Geekwad: Games of the Galaxy and Wacky Funsters. And Kiloblaster. And Jill of the Jungle. Totally can't argue with what's already on there, though.
  2. This was pretty much my reaction to seeing a Pilotwings tribute album. I don't often announce it, but I am a huge fan of the original game, but strangely not the Nintendo 64 game. Still, when they announced Pilotwings Resort for the 3DS a couple years back, I was so excited! Zip ahead to today when I happened to be browsing OverClocked ReMix. What should I find but this album hanging out on the front page? Needless to say, I jumped on that like an Italian plumber on a turtle! I am stoked for this album and can only imagine it will be one of the many awesome things to come out of this sit
  3. I'm really hesitant about admitting this... but this is definitely a great album. It's nearly perfect! However, there are a few flaws I simply can't overlook... I'll explain. The broad selection of songs chosen for this album were pretty much perfect. I like how so many people chose random songs and songs that a lot of people would otherwise overlook, such as X-Hunter Stage 1 theme from Mega Man X2 (grossly overlooked) or Primrose from Mega Man X8 (awesome!). But I can't say I like the fact that there are a couple duplicate covers of songs, not counting the bonus content. The obvious on
  4. This is one of those rare OverClocked ReMix albums that actually does the source material nothing less than absolute justice. Not one of the main album songs sucks. Not a one. If you loved the original Final Fantasy IV soundtrack (or any of the remixes), THIS ALBUM IS FOR YOU. This thing has it all! A number of styles, the complete soundtrack lovingly remixed, and even some epic singing on a few songs! Words don't do this thing justice. You just have to EXPERIENCE it for yourself. Do it. You will not regret it.
  5. The unfortunate thing about these tunes is that they sound less like something Capcom whipped up and more like something Konami whipped up. (Blast Hornet's theme in particular reminds me of Contra: Hard Corps.) There's also definately a bit of Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master in there. Ultimately, despite questionable do-ability on real hardware, these things definately deliver. I could listen to these things all day... Anyway, now that I've BERATED your work (;P), I'd like to make a request. How about the title theme? It shouldn't take too long, I wouldn't think.
  6. At first, I thought this was just another generic remix. Ya know... NESkimos or Minibosses-style. Guitars and heavy drums. Boring stuff like that. Then I heard the lyrics and decided that this was indeed worth listening to after all. The lyrics seems to carry a message of loneliness, shining an altogether different light on Airman in general. No ego. No will of his own, to a degree. A force of destruction and a machine made simply to terrorize Neo Tokyo. (Or "Monsteropolis", as per the US manual.) This is what he was built to do. He wants to defeat anyone who comes near him...but he
  7. Grab yer ten-gallon hat an' ride on in to town with this rip-snortin' good remix of two of th' Dark World themes from The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, pardner! Yeehaw!! Okay, but seriously. This sounds like something out of a Western movie. And incidently, I highly approve of that concept. It's a very pretty song with both calm and exciting parts to it. Well done!
  8. Hm... Marvelous music. Decent vocalizations. But the singing voice completely does not suit the atmosphere of the music, I'm sorry to say. Still, this is a keeper. Definately a four-star piece, if only for the arrangement. Very relaxing.
  9. Ya know, it's extremely rare I bother posting here. But for this song, I had to come out of hiding and actually give an opinion. I have to say, this song is quite possibly...the single-best thing I've heard come from OverClocked ReMix in some time. It's an effective collage of a few of the in-game themes (title, forest, cavern, etc.) with some slick lyrics and a nice, solid beat that never lets up. This song actually bumped me up out of my depression, it's so good. And that says quite a lot, considering I rarely bother fighting off my depression. Anyway... It's a really awesome song and
  10. Honestly speaking, I didn't care much for this as a remix. It's a pretty nice piece of music by itself, and I think it does improve upon the original "Go Down" by Alexander Brandon, but it's certainly no "Hyperblast Redux".(Unreal Tournament 2004.) Not by a long, long shot. But as I said, it's a fairly decent piece by itself. I think I liked it a lot more back before I read it was a remix of "Go Down" and/or heard the Unreal Tournament 2004 arrangement.(Which still makes my pulse quicken and palms sweat to this day.)
  11. Holy crap, do I love this. At least, I did. For some reason, after listening to it for about two minutes, it starts to get boring. . . I'm not entirely sure how else to explain it. It just sort of gets dull after the first half of the song. But then again, there's not much to work with in the first place. But anyway, nice job. And yeah. I didn't feel like a full-fledge review. Sorry.
  12. If you're looking for a solid Super Mario Bros. ReMix. . .then prepare to be sorely disappointed. If you're looking for a generic metal song with lots of ripping synthetic guitars and some SMB thrown in for the Hell of it. . .you've got the right ReMix. In my opinion, this wasn't worth the time it took to download. If I wanted something original and metally(?), I'd hit up Newgrounds or MP3.com or something. This is hardly a ReMix at all. More like an original composition with the Super Mario Bros. theme thrown in here and there just for the Hell of it. And even then, it's only a half-dec
  13. This arrangement makes my stomach churn for some reason. And gives me a headache. Not to mention that it's boring, uninspired, and just drags on. . . Oi. It's my opinion that he did succeed in making "Eat Your Veggies"(AKA "the Well of Wishes/Dopefish song") from Commander Keen IV: The Secret of the Oracle sound all swampy. . .but is that a good thing? Firstly, it's just not varied enough from the original to be truly unique. As I said twice before, this is definately more of an arrangement than a remix. The beginning is rather boring and unmotivated. It's basically the normal beginni
  14. I'll be blunt, for those reading this on the ReMix page itself. This. . .does not sound familiar. At all. It's a good piece, but sounds utterly unfamiliar to me. Apparently, this is a remix of Lorenzo's Soil. But. . .Hell if I can tell. It only sounds vaugely like Lorenzo's Soil. . . I mean, it's an awesome piece of music, and all. But. . .this doesn't sound much like anything I recall from EarthWorm Jim 2. Did the Sega MegaDrive version have some weird-ass special music that I don't know about, perhaps? Seriously, this doesn't qualify as a ReMix, in my opinion. It's either not, or
  15. I'm too tired to take the time to pick apart this song section by section, so I'll just give a brief rundown. This arrangement of Sunset Park Zone, Act 3 is pretty solid. It starts out like any chilled-out trance song, slowly coasting into more solid beats. . . Fade-in drums. . . "Chimes" and notes that cut in and out. . . Stuff like that. It's pretty average as a trance song, really, but as a remix of Sunset Park Zone, Act 3, it works well. Now. . .on another topic, I'm not complaining, buuuuut. . . There are other songs in the game that are worthy of being remixed. It seems like tha
