Songs of Light and Darkness Preview

June 7th, 2013 | Dr. Sheexy | Filed under Fan Stuff, Remixes, Seiken Densetsu 3

The big SD3 remix album I’ve posted about in the past is coming to completion it seems. Rozovian, the guy behind the project, recently told me:

“… we’re now just a few little tracks from being done with the music, and then it’s just up to ocremix to decide when to actually post the album.”

Pretty awesome, right? Seems like only yesterday we first heard about this project… oh that was over 4 years ago?
That’s a long time!
But check this out, there is an almost 10 minute preview over on youtube for your listening and viewing pleasure! Watch it out below and you’ll see the wait has been well worth it!

LP SD3 Ep1

May 14th, 2013 | Kassidy Kearey | Filed under Seiken Densetsu 3, Videos

Bastian from our Seikens forums, together with two friends, Travis and Rick, have started a Let’s Play of Seiken Densetsu 3. This run uses the English translation patch and the 3-player input patch, and you can expect regular episodes to be coming to you twice a week. We’ll be doing our best to post them here on the homepage.

His channel also provides lots of gaming news content and gaming rants, and will be of particular interest if you’re a follower of Nintendo and the Zelda series, so you should head on over and subscribe.

Seiken Densetsu 3 TAS – 3:24:49.0 by praetarius3

January 9th, 2012 | Kassidy Kearey | Filed under Fan Stuff, Seiken Densetsu 3, Videos

Tool Assisted Speed-runs are those done with the assistance of programs that allow the player to re-record segments, edit them, time actions on a frame by frame basis to manipulate luck, and all sorts of other funky things that wouldn’t strictly be possible when playing normally. The aim of these is to get to the end of the game, from a clean state, as quickly as possible, though sometimes speed is sacrificed for entertainment value.

While very often this is seen done for platformers, it isn’t limited to that genre alone. In this case, SD3 has finally been TASed, and completed in just under 3 and a half hours by praetarius3. You can watch it on YouTube here, or download from the tasvideos.org page here. Also, if you want to understand some of the things going on a bit better, check out the author’s comments here.

When watching the video, turn on closed captions in YouTube to get some background as to what is going on, as this plays on a non-patched version of the game.

Remixes Relaunched

July 1st, 2011 | Kassidy Kearey | Filed under Fan Stuff, Final Fantasy Adventure, Legend of Mana, Remixes, Secret of Mana, Seiken Densetsu 3, Seikens, Sword of Mana

The Remixes page is back in action, and in perfect timing (gee golly what a coincidence, huh?), as a new Seiken Densetsu remix has just been posted on OCRemix: Starlight Festival – Kiamet, a wonderful solo piano rendition of Powell from Seiken Densetsu 3 that brings across a sense of urgency through its Latin influence in style. The playing is very precise and includes some very nice harmonies and added textures on top of the original melody. The sound quality is exceptional.

Seiken Densetsu 3 Sample Cartridge

January 23rd, 2011 | Kassidy Kearey | Filed under Seiken Densetsu 3

KassCourtesy of our affiliate, Square Palace, we bring you information regarding the pre-release press sample cartridge for Seiken Densetsu 3. While locked down rather tightly, it does offer a little insight in to a couple of bits that didn’t make it into the final game, and makes for some interesting research. Not sure I’d personally go out of my way to invest $200 in sourcing a cartridge of this nature though.
You can read the article here.

Songs of Light and Darkness Preview

December 6th, 2010 | Dr. Sheexy | Filed under Fan Stuff, Remixes, Seiken Densetsu 3

Mana Music Monday indeed, I’ve got another music update for you today.

What is Songs of Light and Darkness exactly? Well it’s that SD3 fan remix project I’ve posted about before!

Seems rozovian, the guy behind the project, has a preview track ready. Try to pick out the tracks before reading them in the cut, it’s pretty fun and I failed miserably at recognizing stuff, haha. I always knew I was bad with picking out tunes, but one out of five? For shame Sheexy, for shame! Anyway, it’s a short preview but it all sounds really good!
