New OCR Judge, Shnabubula

After the recent retirement of Sir Malcos, Shnabubula is the latest OCR
connoisseur take his seat as one of the esteemed judges, to wade
through hundreds of crappy submissions from would be ReMixers.
Congratulations, good luck, and don't let the abundance of abominable
tunes get you down. 😉

Chrono Symphonic Interviews

As you know, Chrono Symphonic is a project to rework some of CT's
greatest music into orchestral scores to accompany a movie script
Claado Shou has written. Since October, it's attracted several great
remixers, and new faces have joined with very promising tracks as well.
Over the last two weeks, I've collected a bunch of interviews for a
sort of “behind the scenes” look at what's going on, and a lot of
remixers are featured. Don't miss it!

Hey, it's content!

In the interest of moving the site forward, I’ve posted the first in a
weekly series of editorials called Tha Rant. You can get to it through
the Editorials section. This week’s column covers the PS3 controller.

You can contribute too! If you’re interested in writing a
regular column, please contact us. The topic can be just about anything
as long as it’s remotely scene-related, although we would like for it
to be at least (1) relevant, (2) current, and (3) appropriate, and you
need to be able to keep a regular schedule(i.e. weekly, monthly, etc.).
Contact [email protected] with the subject line “editorial” if interested.

Replace Docs For Your Video Games

The goal of replacementdocs is to preserve and archive game documentation for
years to come. They are a community of gamers who appreciate the importance of
game documentation and know the frustration that comes when this documentation
is not available.
They have been around for several years now and currently offer Acrobat PDF
downloads of over 2000 different game manauals for various platforms. I know
they have secured explicit permission to host these manuals from some game
publishers and are working on getting permission from others. Some game
publishers, like Atari, actually link to replacementdocs from their technical
support website.

Robot Master Remix Battle

DarkeSword has started up a new remixing contest at OCR entitled the
Robot Master Remix Battle. A spinoff of the 6th IronMix
competition (now discontinued), the premise involves combining two Mega Man robot
master/Maverick/etc. themes into one “versus” mix. The particular
theme for this first contest is Mega Man 2 vs. Mega Man 4. Any
robot master theme from those games is eligible, excluding the overmixed popular Wily stages. Entries are due on the first of July.

XOC's Super Mario World Cover Album

From out of nowhere, a guy by the name of XOC (Jason Cox) has released a collection of Super Mario World covers.

XOC sums it up quite well himself: “The complete soundtrack to Super Mario World, covered by one man using
dozens of instruments. Roughly in game order, faithful to the
originals, with some bizarre artistic license thrown around. A private
hobby made public. Dedicated to Koji Kondo”

Catchy and eccentric, the songs cover all the major themes from the
original Super Mario World on SNES, varying in styles from polka(?)
to.. well you’ll just have to listen. The songs are all available in
MP3 and OGG.

In other words, CHECK IT OUT, YO!

CTRP gets C&D letter

The Chrono Trigger Remake Project has received a
ceast & desist letter from SquareEnix. Although nominated most
likely candidate to get such an order, no one truly believed it would
happen. It’s as if a warning siren has blared to all Chrono modders. I
advise everyone to take your projects underground if it’s of something
grand like CTRP. TheBrain offers a few words on
: “We from the CTRP team would like to say sorry to Square-Enix, Co.
Ltd. and its affiliates. We didn’t realize that a fan game would be so
harmful to your business.” Although it’s tough to say this, the only
good thing that could come of this recent C&D order is the hint
that something Chrono related could be in the works. It also means SE
cares about the franchise enough to take down something inifinitely
smaller than Chrono Trigger Resurrection. Anyway, do watch yourself
from now on.

Thirty else. I of not to of it out break like while in a as I I.

RedOctane wants to make you a Guitar Hero

announced recently that they will be holding a special contest titled
“Be A Guitar Hero,” for a very unique prize. The winner of this contest
will have their song included in the actual Guitar Hero
game. What better way to help jumpstart your band than have your song
be in a bemani game alongside The Red Hot Chili Peppers, David Bowie,
and White Zombie? I sure can’t think of one!
