  1. Strange, I never felt Xenogears was terribly difficult, and had no problem beating it right when it came out (back in '97, methinks?). Of course, I'm such a grinder/completionist (or at least I used to be, back when I had free time) that RPGs would have to offer some kind of crazy difficult challenge for me to just give up (I came close with Yiazmat in Final Fantasy XII, but I had heard so much hype/scare beforehand that I was very prepared going into it, and I only died a few times before figuring out how to beat him). I think the only game that I completely "gave up" with was the Lily Pad Ride in Mario Sunshine. I eventually figured out that I didn't need to ride the lily pad down the river the entire way in one go, and completed it. To this day, however, I still cannot do it just riding the lily pad, and I think that doing it any other way is circumventing the way that the game was designed to be played, but whatever.
  2. I love the chip-tuned Disney Afternoon theme in the trailer!
  3. Don't own any of the current gen consoles, but I may have to pick up a Switch.
  4. Wow, this is really great. Wish there was a download link available...
  5. Man, I have such good memories of playing the After Burner arcade game as a kid (I always blew through my missiles way too fast). Not familiar with this specific source material, but this remix captures the spirit of the game so well. Been listening to it on repeat since I downloaded it yesterday.
  6. Don't forget about this one! One of the only remixes of the NES Godzilla ending song.
  7. I've had this remix by Red Tailed Fox for coming up on 11 years now, and I have no idea where I found it (thinking maybe one of the many iterations of VGMix, but I don't know for sure). It's called "Wood's Motel", and it's a remix of "Forest Interlude" from Donkey Kong Country 3 (which is interesting, because he also has "Fixbit Forest", another remix of the same source, which appeared on ThaSauce). I generally really like his stuff and didn't want this one to get lost in oblivion since it seems that it's near impossible to find online anymore. Here's the link: https://www.dropbox.com/s/2drm5z4haofio4r/Wood's Motel.mp3
  8. Someone who likes Kamen Rider-style music should do Red's/Alkaiser's theme from SaGa Frontier (and here's an awesome Japanese doujin version)
  9. Holy crap, someone actually using a song from the NES Godzilla soundtrack?? So awesome!
  10. Great album. I only wish I didn't have to take a break to go pee every other song.
  11. Everyone complaining about 1 a.m. bedtimes clearly haven't been binge-watching Daredevil Season 2 Been keeping me up until 2 a.m. or later Anyhow, really excited to hear all of the final mixes! Hope Gario can get something semi-decent submitted!
  12. Apparently, I missed this signup and source, but alls I got to say is, "fuck yeah"
  13. I'd start with the masterpiece that is Symphony of the Night and work your way from there. If anyone else has recommendations, feel free to post.
  14. Holy shit, 16 years. I found the site about a year into its existence, back when most of the remixes were posted by djpretzel (I also downloaded my fair share of McVaffe (whose midi's I had listened to well before the foundation of the site), Scott Peebles, and AmIEvil remixes). I even still have a large number of those original files (with albums tagged as "http://remix.overclocked.org/"). I had been an avid fan of video game music before the days of mp3 when all I would have to listen to were midis and songs in Module file formats (MOD, S3M, XM, etc). Most of you kids wouldn't remember those days, but the advent of the mp3 changed things so much, allowing for a site like OCR to even exist. I owe so much of my music library to OCR, and it's helped me maintain my interest in and love for video game music into adulthood. It's helped me expand my taste in and appreciation for different kinds of music, and I still rely on the site for providing me with new music even today. That's not to say that I also don't occasionally enjoy looking through old remixes and reminiscing about when I first downloaded some of them a decade ago
  15. Just amazing stuff from melody. Can't gush anymore about it than everyone else has already.
  16. Hoping for some closure. After Jack has come so close to returning to the past throughout the first run of the series, I really need to see him get home and fix everything.
  17. Recently shared via Toonami's Facebook page: I don't know if it can ever be the same without Mako playing Aku, but I am still very, VERY excited for this.
  18. Yes, and that level looks fricken' incredible with the summons just showing up randomly and doing random attacks
  19. I know that I've been less active in the past year or two, mostly because of having a second kid (which is way more work than only having one), but also because I've gotten busier with work, too. I don't know about any diminishing interest in nostalgia, because OCR itself has a lot of nostalgia value for me, having started listening to mixes from the site back in 2001. If anything, I think that the normal consequences of life have just gradually taken people away from the site over time, and there haven't been as many new users cropping up to replace them. I really do love this site and want it to continue to succeed, so it may be something that I have to actively remind myself to check in on more often. And I never regret digging through the archives for remixes that I may have missed over the years.
  20. Orlouge82 Splash Supafly (Splash Warfly in Sigma Stage 2 [X3]) Laulu (Frost Walrus in Sigma Stage 2 [X3]) Madness, Exploration, and Pointed Beaks (Storm Eagle in Sigma Stage 2 [X3])
  21. Wow, only six mixes. Shout out to those who submitted, especially ladyWildfire who was able to put together another awesome mix on a major time crunch and with a few drinks in her
