MTV Nominates Soundtracks

Consoles these days are capable of delivering extraordinary audio, but
it’s not an aspect every company pays attention to. When someone does,
as was the case with Katamari Damacy,
people pay attention. MTV is sort of honoring this ideal with their
‘Best Video Game Soundtrack’ award, part of their annual upcoming Video
Music Awards.

How not to have Square Enix make Chrono Break

Back at the Chrono Compendium, I’ve finished a 2000 word feature highlighting some of the methods of contacting SE that wont change anything, and I also provide SE’s mailing address as well as an example letter that actually does have a chance of helping to convince them to make a new Chrono game. Too long have fanboys been crapping up SE’s customer support with hateful e-mails, bad grammer and stupid ideas. If you’d like to see some of the worst examples, and check out how to actually help, it’s at .

analoq remix album featuring OCR talent

Today analoq released his remix album based on a 30 second original he wrote back in 2000.

Featuring: analoq, S|r_NutS, ArseAssassin, Dan Baranowsky, DarkeSword and DCT.
It’s available in mp3 and ogg, but analoq recommends getting the oggs
because most of the tracks blend into one another, and mp3s aren’t
sample accurate so there might be a click or gap between the tracks.
He wanted the tunes to be inseparable like in a good DJ
set rather than have ‘loose’ transitions like albums generally do,
so it is most definitely intended to be listened to all the way through.

Doujin spotlight: Arrange Stream

The Japanese remix site Arrange Stream recently resumed its normal operation with the triumphant words “job hunt ended.”

Babelfish warning, as usual.

Arrange Stream keeps track of video game arrangements and originals from dozens of websites, such as OCR and VGMix, and posts the newest songs as they are released. Even tracks from and
have been known to show up once in a while. It’s a great way to stay up
to date with the Japanese remix scene, as well as get acquainted with
lots of great doujin music you otherwise would never have known about.

Highly recommended!

VGMix Redesign

“Hello, VGMixers!

“We have totally revamped the front page news display into an actual
news system. You are now able to comment on updates, and quite a few
users will be given the ability to post news articles to the front page
(under the Admins’ guidance, of course) — Turning this effectively
into a pseudo-weblog. Expect to see such things as videogame concerts,
events happening at other sites, gatherings of community members, and
other cool happenings posted here [the VGMix news module].

“I’m also taking this opportunity to announce the next big updates,
which are close to completion (along with many, many small fixes):

“Competition / collaborative project organization: We’ll be able to have
compos and projects as an official, integrated part of the site, with
voting and internal or external hosting all accounted for;

“User-based quality control: Let’s face it, we need to clean house.
Songs extraordinary in either extreme are going to be tagged by
consensus. There will be removals and there will be a panel-like
function, and the full machinery of the “RPG system” is going to grind
to life. Our aim is to avoid stepping on anyone’s toes or spiralling
into cronyism and popularity wars. It’s going to be some exciting

“Both things need more testing and fixing-up on my local machine,
then I’ll open it up on our testing server for admins. Once they give
the green light, both systems will go live — And there’s MUCH more to
do after that, too!

“Make sure to comment and tell us what you think, because it
actually does matter. I want us to have a site that people want to use.”
