Awakening by MOOMANiBE

Another week ended in VGIM and we find ourselves with over 10 new OCReMix tracks to celebrate ten years online. One of which is from good friend XMark who appeared on our second mixtape. Also with the release of Silent Hill: Shattered Memories (which is awesome by the way) for the Wii this week, news comes that Akira Yamaoka has left Konami, making this possibly the final SH soundtrack by him. Finally, up above we have some interesting FF6 (or 3) artwork called Awakening by MOOMANiBE which looks at one part of the game from another perspective. You can check out more of his work on his DeviantArt. Along with last week's picture these may be getting a tad risque, but this is just the awesome stuff I come across. We shall see if next week continues this streak or not.

VIDEO This week we have an awesome video of a performance by Random, AKA Mega Ran. This was from a show I was lucky enough to attend in Los Angeles this past November 27th. Mega Ran put on a great performance, and this is my particular favorite. This was recorded by Jeriaska of Nobuooo.com and you can see the rest of the concert through here. Although if last weeks live chiptunes footage is more up your alley, then check out BOSTON8BIT's youtube page for more footage from that concert!
