  1. You're going to really love level 7-7 ("Music Madness") of Donkey Kong Country Returns. It's exactly this, except some things aren't right on the 4 - some are on every one beat, some every 8, and so on. Some also move platforms in rhythm instead of hitting them. I feel like it was definitely inspired by that level of SMG2. You can watch a runthrough of the level here (but spoilers if you haven't played this awesome game before):
  2. Come on, this comparison doesn't work at all. OCR does what it does with the intention of honoring the original music and talent. What's more, most of the artists here don't find tons of money and success by doing it. The same can't be said for many of the examples posted here. Personally, I like hearing some of these examples. Also, anyone ripping on Kanye for using Daft Punk needs to listen to this:
  3. This is an excellent idea. Setting Redial as my ringtone right now.
  4. Oh wow, no wonder I got tripped up - the theme you actually had sounds really similar to the Myst IV theme. Here are the two themes we're talking about so everyone can compare:
  5. Yeah, because when Super Mario Bros was packed with the NES, that was different, right? I actually agree with him. I don't think pack-ins should count at all, including SMB, Wii Sports, and Tetris - just show the copies of those games bought by themselves. I know there probably won't be many, but that's because those games were given away, not really sold! Anyway, I got 34 - forgot about Duck Hunt, a couple pokemon titles, and the gran turismo series.
  6. Hmmmm, I might be wrong, but I believe one or more of those are from Myst IV. Also, welcome!
  7. The most I can say I heard was a 1-UP sound effect as someone's text message ringtone.
  8. I can't believe I never commented on this mix. I have to say, this is probably my favorite SMB underworld remix ever. At the beginning I wasn't expecting to like it but I was sufficiently blown away. You use some excellent effects, you've got a great solo, and the arrangement was carefully thought out. My favorite part is definitely the transition from 1:53 to 2:13 finishing in that little riff with the guitar - very fulfilling. If I had to pick out any issues, it would be that the mix feels a little crowded near the end and it's tough to hear the low end - but otherwise, spectacular track!
  9. YES. This track is HOT. The bassline kills me, and you have a masterful sense of putting every little beat in just the right place to jam. You're better than ever and each of these just leaves me craving more. Honestly these extended jam tracks you've done like this and Bumpin' are some of my favorites of the site.
  10. Awesome, punchy stuff. Okay, I have to admit, the compression is too intense and gripping for my tastes, but the same is true for me for many other songs in this genre, and you made the song fit like a glove - it works very well. Great work! I've been looking forward to everything new from you and this was really satisfying.
  11. I just recently listened to Calvin Harris' most recent second album Ready for the Weekend and was totally disappointed. His first album had STYLE and was really unique. There were a lot of insanely catchy, funky tracks on there - that's why I was so ready for the new one. But the new album is totally different - it sounds like he completely sold out, and it's all really generic stuff that sounds like everything else.
  12. Ahhhhhhh nice, I remember this! This was one of my favorite tracks from VGMix, and I still listen to it now and then! Glad to see you submit it.
  13. I think the title is misleading. It's not 3D, it's perspective, if the tech is the same as what we saw in that DSi video and it's based on a camera system. Headtracking ≠ depth. If it DOES have "3D without glasses" like they're announcing, I'm expecting some sort of lenticular, ridged plastic screen. The tech just doesn't exist to do it otherwise! If it DOESN'T have 3D, then they're calling it and advertising it as something it's not.
  14. Pretty sure that's not the case. There are already reviews out for the DS collection, and they say all the 2-player options were stripped out - even the ones from Sonic 2.
  15. It's a fun idea but they definitely already have ideas and themes they want to go with for this series - it seems a little late in the running to be thinking about pushing for this. And plus, I mean, as cool as the notoriety would be for OCR to do it, I want to hear what Sega themselves are going to do! I want to know how they plan to evolve the old style of Sonic tunes (as opposed to the style they've used in recent games). I do like the idea someone put forward of making some kinda alternate soundtrack though! Incidentally, here's something from a recent Gamespot interview: GS: What can we expect from the music? Will it sound like the old Sonic games? KB: It will sound like a modern evolution from the original series. Expect to hear very familiar tempos and styles of music that resonates with 16-bit games.
  16. Awesome. This has the Justice sound down pat, and has got to be the outright punchiest song I've ever heard from this site - plus, you made the theme fit naturally! Great work. Hey, I think I'm recognizing a very short sample out of the Phantom tracks by Justice - that echoing background stab you use in the beginning, like at :17 and :25. That definitely adds some authenticity too! Shit, the bass is just SIZZLING in this track. You've definitely earned another one of the spots for the remixes I keep permanently in my library!
  17. My thoughts exactly. Also The Damned, give him some credit! I think it came out looking really snazzy!
  18. And this one, of course: I can't even imagine how loud these things have got to be.
  19. Oh nice, I didn't know he'd finished the 8th episode! Yeah, I love this series too. Every episode just gets better and better. Not just the action, but there's so many great little references!
  20. NICE, the Iceberg theme from KDL3?! I may have to buy that. And the Gnat Attack theme sounds fantastic.
  21. I was about to say you should really check this out, because it's a really awesome Starcraft song by Shnabubula (intended as a "lost Starcraft song" in the Terran style) but it looks like he's since made the video private for some reason.
