  1. As many of you may know, Monday (before 1PM Pacific) Is the last chance to add credit to the original Wii Shop. As someone who produces a video game music radio show, I'm attempting to maximize value by picking up games with sound tests (I prefer commercially released soundtracks, but that isn't always viable). Therefore, highest priority goes to games that: -Do not have a readily available commercial soundtrack for (at least that version of) the game. In other words, games where a soundtrack has either never been released, or the soundtrack is out of print and horribly expensive. -Have not been re-released on other platforms (or have, but those versions have significant sound issues -A physical version of the game would be significantly harder/more expensive to come by I figure this might be a good thing to crowdsource. Here are a few I came up with: Pulseman Earthworm Jim (Genesis version-PC version on GOG has CD music)
  2. Every year for my site, I try to do an April Fool's article regarding Pokemon, usually involving music in some way (for example, last year I made up a fake tracklist for an "Epic Rap Battles of Pokemon" compilation). This year, I'm planning on writing a fake article about Hitmonchan being cut from the Wii Punch-Out game (I figure this is my last chance to use this gag since the game was just released on the Wii U eShop). I have a rough outline involving a "Nintendo Circuit" that was planned for the game but reduced down to just DK for the final version. To cap it all off, I'd like to make the story more musical by having a version of the Punch-Out theme redone to sound more like music from the original Pokemon Game Boy games, similar to what was done with the other fighters in the Wii Punch-Out game. My idea is that it would start off with the traditional Pokemon "battle alarm" sound, then go into the Punch-Out melody. Throughout the mix, we'd sprinkle in some Pokemon sound effects and perhaps some brief passages from the battle music. P.S. If anyone could do some original art in the style of the pre-fight slideshows in the Wii Punch-Out game, that'd be a great bonus.
  3. I'm not sure if it counts, but the DSiWare game PiCTOBiTS (aka PiCOPiCT) has some fantastic music by YMCK.
  4. I've only scratched the surface, but it should keep you busy for a while, depending on how much time you spend trying to improve your times. If you get in to it, I'd assume at least 5 hours.
  5. NES Remix is really cool. Think of it as a cross between WarioWare and Nintendo World Championships. Basically, there are timed challenges from a variety of games where you're placed into a level with a specific task. The faster you complete the task, the more stars you earn (up to 3 per challenge), and more stars unlock more challenges.
  6. In case you didn't know, the soundtrack is out on iTunes. It's doing very well (#8 in albums on iTunes US as I write this), and The Pokemon Company has said some of the back catalog of games is coming next year.
  7. The Wii display on the gamepad is pretty cool-given the lack of original Wii U titles this year, it's a shame it didn't come out earlier-you could definitely use it as selling point.
  8. There's always the Ambassadors of Funk's "SuperMario Compact Disco" album (believe it or not, you can buy it on iTunes US and several other places). That's a favorite of mine.
  9. If you need any more, there's also the Simian Acres (first level in the game) theme from Blast Corps for N64.
  10. Glad you like it. I've started the vocal recording process, but I need to get a few more takes in so I can merge the changes together. Luckily there's only one vocal track in this song.
  11. (Mods-I wasn't sure where to put this-sorry if this isn't the right place, but it is gaming related) Notes: -Song is referring to this. -For the unaware, "Nihon" is the Japanese word for Japan (much like how "Deutschland" is the German word for Germany). Ode to Arino Parody of “Angry Video Game Nerd Theme” by Kyle Justin With new lyrics by Steven Reich He’s gonna take you back to the past, To play the classic games he #*! at He’d rather fight a buffalo Than watch Dhalsim getting punched in his ear He’s gonna fall for every trap hole If you think he's sunk, I guess you're new here It’s the gamiest center you’ve ever heard, He’s the Nihon Nintendo nerd He’s the Nihon Konami Sega nerd He’s the Nihon video game nerd Don’t you turn off your TV He’s gonna make it-wait and see! Arino’s thumbs may hurt, he may break a sweat Although he’s cornered our guy will never back down He’ll grab a cooling pad, no he ain’t done yet Armed with his helpers he will take these games down It’s the gamiest center you’ve ever heard, He’s the Nihon Nintendo nerd He’s the Nihon SNK Capcom nerd He’s the Nihon video game nerd He brings the worst game of all time Pitiful annihilations blow my mind But when he starts each marathon, he says: Arino: GameCenter CX! Kacho-On! From eight on up to sixty-four bit This show is huge you know it’s a hit Where did he learn to swim? Why can’t he land a plane? What were they thinking when they gave him this game? His strategy’s always wrong Let’s help him get along Come on now ADs go do your thing! It’s the gamiest center you’ve ever heard, His game #*! so bad-hey watch out for that bird! He’s the genkiiest most retro gaming nerd He’s the Nihon Irem Namco Tecmo Sunsoft Hudson Soft Sony Neo Geo Falcom Quintet Data East Vic Tokai Game Freak Nintendo Nerd He’s the Nihon video game nerd Background: I wrote this song for a presentation in my Japanese night class. At some point I plan on recording it.
  12. Also, you have to admit the silliness of condensing down an entire year of entertainment down to a show that's only a few hours long-there's no way to do it justice. Play what you like, people. That's all that really matters.
  13. It's about time someone remixed something from this sub-series. I actually bought Explorers of Sky solely because it had the "Sky Jukebox" sound test feature.
  14. Pretty good overall. I'll try to have some of this up on the station next week (already linked on my blog). My main disappointment is that there's nothing from the side games-Puzzle League, the GameCube games, and Mystery Dungeon all have great things to offer as well, hopefully someone will get around to mixing those at some point.
  15. It's actually from the track "The Night Before Christmas" on Pokemon Christmas Bash, in case any of you were wondering. I've had it pointed out to me before.
  16. Definitely sounding better, but I think the synth organ at 2:25 is a little out of place.
  17. Yeah, I agree, the music in this series is a bit underrated (then again, I'm probably biased). Anyway, The song's not bad, but there's nothing in there that really grabs me either. One thing that might help is if you could incorporat some of the elements from the subsequent "Temporal Spire" track. Specifically, you could add a ticking sound as a drum sample. I'd also like to hear some type of sound similar to when you suddenly stop a record player (use it sparingly though, or else it will make the mix too cheesy), perhaps between sections of the song with brief silence thereafter.
  18. Actually, the first thing I thought of when I saw the title was, "Is this an OCRemix or a Fall Out Boy Song?" I'm glad to hear it won't become "OC Remix Made Us Change The Name of This Song So We Wouldn't Get Flamed". Pretty cool. There probably aren't very many source materials like this in video games, so this is a rare treat indeed.
  19. I downloaded this straight off the site without reading any of the info (except that it was from MKDS), expecting some sort of techno remix from the game. Boy, was I surprised when I heard vocals coming out of my speakers. Great job. Where did you record this?
  20. Not bad. Good to finally see a Pokemon mix (someone do Mewtwo's stage theme from Pokemon Puzzle League!)-kinda reminds me of "Rokutsuto Den Ajuto" from disc 2 of the FireRed/LeafGreen soundtrack. Hopefully we'll hear more soon.
  21. I was just thinking it would be nice to have the "chill" theme (track 4 on the nsf) from Dr. Mario done in the style of the music from the Wii ads. You could call it "Wii Would Like to Operate" or something like that.
  22. Very nice. Would fit right in a techno thriller movie. Somewhat repetitive-try mixing things a little.
  23. Right now it sounds like music for a trailer of some incredibly dark Mario game/movie. I can't wait to see what happens when you flesh it out.
  24. This mix makes me want to go bulldoze something-probably because the organ makes it seem so Blast Corpsian (anyone else get that feeling?). This is one of the best mixes I've heard in quite some time. Nice use of the "game over" music at the end. I'd like to hear an extended version of this sometime.
