Ragnarok Online 10th anniversary box has lots to look at

We just featured an issue of Note Worthy last week, but I thought the elaborate packaging and contents that GungHo put into the Ragnarok Online 10th Anniversary Package last year deserved its own moment in the spotlight. It i...

Warm up with remix album Mario Kart: Bonus Beach photo
Warm up with remix album Mario Kart: Bonus Beach
by Darren Nakamura

Are you suffering from one of the winter storms that recently hit, burying your home in feet of snow? If so, this won't technically help you, but it may remind you of some of the classic beach tunes from past games in the Mario Kart series.

Remixed by Benjamin Briggs, the three tracks here are available on BandCamp for however much you want to pay, even if that means you just want to grab the songs for free. You can give them a listen below, and if you like what you hear and are feeling generous, you're welcome to toss a donation Ben's way.

Super Mario 3D World hip-hop remix by Dj Cutman

We've said time and again how great the Super Mario 3D World soundtrack is. The team used the game's main theme quite extensively in promotional videos for the game, and it became obvious that they were taking the series in ...

Pokemon: The Eevee EP pleases Charles Darwin photo
Pokemon: The Eevee EP pleases Charles Darwin
by Tony Ponce

Did you know that Charles Darwin's theory of evolution was first published on August 20, 1858? OverClocked ReMix knew, which is why the music arrangement clan celebrated the monumental scientific event by releasing Pokémon: The Eevee EP exactly 155 years later.

After the obscenely massive five-disc Balance and Ruin, it's refreshing that OCR scaled back for this sensible nine-track album. The Eevee EP is a tribute to that evolutionary enigma, Eevee, which each song representing the base critter and its eight evolutions, including Sylveon from Pokémon X / Y. Eevee doesn't have any specific theme music, so these arrangements instead source various in-game tunes that thematically represent Eevee's forms.

Download the free release from the album page below, or hit up the torrent here.

Balance and Ruin: FFVI OC ReMix is out now
by Darren Nakamura

It's been a bit of a bumpy ride for the Final Fantasy VI OverClocked ReMix. After easily reaching its Kickstarter funding goal a year ago, the project was scrapped due to copyright issues, but was then back on later in the year. Fast forward to today, and the fruits of fan funding can be harvested; Balance and Ruin, the Final Fantasy VI OC ReMix is available for download.

The album consists of 74 tracks created by a huge range of artists, including some of my personal favorites like Jimmy "BigGiantCircles" Hinson and Danny Baranowsky.

The beautiful thing about OC ReMix is that the digital album is made available for free to the public. Backers will receive physical copies and other rewards, but everybody else can download the entire set from Balance and Ruin's official website.
