Digital Mystery Tour Episode 15: Balance and Ruin

One of the best tributes to Final Fantasy VI out there.

Recently I heard a new fan project by the fine folks over at OverClocked Remix. it's a 4 disk set of music inspired by (read: covers of music from) Final Fantasy VI. If you've got any nostalgia for the game, any love for the series, if you're a fan of Uemastu or if you even like good music in general, you really owe it to yourself to check it out.

Now, of course, I've got a 30 minute show here, so you're not going to hear the entire album. What I've done instead is try to give you a pretty good sample of what to expect. Naturally, there's much much more on the actual product, including work from many more artists reflecting quite a few different styles of music. You can grab it for free from their site, and again, I highly recommend it.

Balance and Ruin is so good! I did several blogs about it—here, here, and here. Picking just a few would be hard but I like your selections. I love the silly swing of Gobble, Snarf, Snap and The Impresario blows me away every time I hear it.

I was rocking out to that in the car last night driving home from work actually. Someone really loves their Queen. The entire Opera set works so well together. The first track sounds like someone who loves them some Phantom of the Opera, and the last one is just. WOW.

I really like A Fistfull of Nickles.  That whistle and similar sound to the Wild Arms games sold me on it right away.

Five Things Mass Effect Could Improve On

We are fast approaching November 7, which in recent years has been marked as “N7 Day” by EA and BioWare, and is usually a celebration of all thing Mass Effect. We’ve done things for N7 Day in the past, and I’m sure we will this year, as BioWare is set to finally show off the upcoming Mass Effect: Andromeda in a big way. Considering that the game is expected early next year it’s a little worrisome that we have seen so little of it by now. With that being the case, I thought it would be fun to take a look back at my favorite game in the series: the first Mass Effect. That game had some serious issues, but instead of fixing those issues for Mass Effect 2, BioWare’s solution was to throw most of them right out the window. So let’s take a look at some of those problems with the original Mass Effect. I will identify the major issues, explain what BioWare’s solution was, and provide an alternative fix that I hope makes its way into Andromeda.
