Tune in to OCremix’s Eevee EP!

August 20, 2013

Well I just wanted to drop a blurb about the latest release from OCremix so no one missed it. It is called the Eevee EP and it’s fantastic. It departs from retro a bit because the remixes span the original series up to the newer games, but it’s worth every breach of protocol. There’s a total of 9 tracks and every one of them is excellent. Each evolution of Eevee is given a song plus Eevee him/herself.

When Things Shouldn’t Change: Pokemon GS

June 30, 2010

Well I’ll be talking about music as usual, of course this time my complaint is with one of the big sellers of this year: Pokemon Heart Gold and Soul Silver. Now of course I will openly say that I was initially wary of this game because it was, in fact, my favorite out of the series, and I really did not want to be disappointed, nor to pay $40.  So naturally I did not buy it, but of course I checked out the music, and I was dismayed to find something that stopped far short of it’s potential.

Hidden Gems: Metal Gear Solid

May 6, 2010

Yes I know what you’re thinking, Metal Gear Solid?? EVERYONE KNOWS ABOUT THAT GAME.

But I’m not referring to the Playstation game at all.

No what I’m referring to is the Gameboy color game.

In Japan it was released under the title Metal Gear: Ghost Babel. The story is not continuous with any of the Metal Gear Solid story lines, but it is an alternate timeline that takes place 8 years after the events of Outer Heaven.
