MAGFest and OCReMix attending Video Games Live in Virginia April 25th

So I just learned from Dom (who you may remember from his recent LBP rendition) that the OCReMix and MAGFest crews should be out in full force soon at the April 25th show of Video Games Live in Richmond Virginia. Not only that but Dom shall be playing the keys himself and taking requests of course!

Partnering once again with Video Games Live, OCR judges Larry Oji (Liontamer) & Jimmy Hinson (Big Giant Circles) are planning to be there to greet fans and talk video game music! Joining them are the staff of the biggest annual video game music party, MAGFest! MAGFest creator Brendan Becker (Mr. MAGFest), music director Dominic Cerquetti, and promotions man Nick Marinelli (Nick the Newbie) will be there in full force to tell you why you should attend 3 full days of concerts, game rooms and panels at MAGFest 8 next January!

Into The Score 26 - All’s Fair in Strife and Crisis

It's high time for another amazing look into the art, history, and sheer awesomeness of video game music with Kenley Kristofferson. That is right! Time for Into The Score 26 - All’s Fair in Strife and Crisis. As the name suggests, this episode Kenley delves into the music from recent Square PSP title Crisis Core, as well as looking at the broader topic of FFVII and it's legacy. The episode is also filled to the brim with plenty of special guests, including David "DJ Pretzel" Lloyd and Larry "Liontamer" Oji from OverClocked ReMix, as well as Kyle Wynen and Laren McFadden from the FXN Final Fantasy XIII podcast.

As always the show is insightful and informative and worth every second to listen to. As always I have to give a huge amount of respect to Kenley for going out of his way to pay tribute to video game music in such detail like no one else does. Kenley is definitely a stand out person in the VGM community and deserves all the praise he gets. I have learned a ton about both music and VGM history from him and his podcast so I for one definitely owe him thanks.

As soon as I posted my first post about Christmas VGM I get a message from my new best friend Larry "Liontamer" Oji, the head submissions evaluator for OverClocked ReMix and creator of VG Frequency.

He wised me to even more great holiday VGM! First of all is An OverClocked Christmas, which, while not an official OCReMix release, has a few of the fine OCReMixers sharing their holiday cheer through the sound of music. Another fantastic download to rock at your Christmas parties!
