OCR FTW!

Shael shot me a message earlier this morning to let me know that he, djptretzel, and a number of other artists from the OverClocked ReMix community would be providing the soundtrack to Capcom's Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix. How fuckin' cool is that?!

The guys have already done a trio of interviews concerning this most amazing feat (at Ars Technica, Console Arcade, and Fidget), so the buzz is definitely starting to build.

That being said, this is still very much a grassroots movement among geeky musicians, and fan support is paramount. If you'd be so kind as to Digg the Ars Technica piece and/or give the guys a little love at the official Capcom forums, I'm sure they'd appreciate it.

Fans go pro: how OC ReMix put its stamp on Street Fighter II:

The musicians and fans at the popular site OverClocked ReMix were given a dream assignment: remix the songs from Street Fighter 2 for a new high-definition revamp that Capcom is releasing on Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network. We talk with the remix team about the challenges involved in remixing an iconic piece of video game history.

This is really awesome news, and it's great to see some industry recognition for us nerds down here.

Anyway, glad it's getting more press and interviews. Now when will the game actually come out so I can get my ass kicked!?

Yeah, Ant, it's been a bit of a public secret for a while now, but I've just been waiting for clearance to actually talk about it. The big Digg push seemed like the perfect opportunity to do so. :)
