First OC ReMix album of 2012 shows love to unsung RPGs


10:00 PM on 01.24.2012



OverClocked ReMix has officially rung in the new year with it's first album of 2012. Titled Unsung Heroes, it is a celebration of many classic RPGs that, though beloved, are rarely sourced for fan-made musical tributes. The appearance of this album is a bit ironic, however, considering that OCR's previous release was based on a game that likewise never got brought up in arrangement discussions prior. No matter.

Variety is the word once again, as 14 artists take on 15 solid but often overlooked RPGs via an array of musical styles. Games covered include Persona 3, Faxanadu, Bahamut Lagoon, Luminous Arc, Ghouls'n Ghosts, Suikoden... WHOAWHOAWHOA! Hold up! Ghouls'n Ghosts!? Seriously? That's not an RPG! What's it doing here? Could no one think of anything else to fill that slot? Such a curious inclusion.

Whatevs. The album is free as always. Who's truly going to complain about a single oddball track?

I want to run right past these gravekeeper hags in Bloodborne

Bloodborne isn't coming out until March. That means I have a solid few months to mentally prepare myself for these horrific things, described by Sony Japan Studio producer Masaaki Yamagiwa as "deformed gravekeeper hags." I do...more

Korean MMO seems to outdo recent JRPGs

Just aesthetically, Peria Chronicles looks better than all these budget, tropefest JRPGs that fill time between Persona installments. And it's more impressive when you realize that this is a (Korean) MMO with ...more
