Here are a couple of links for those who enjoy listening to video game music. Feel free to post some more.

Gaming FM. I've posted this link here before, but the audio stream has been down for the last few months. It just recently came back online. The songs they play are based on request, and they have a fairly large selection (although it hasn't been updated during their recent hiatus).

OCRemix. This site features some really nice remixes of video game music. They also have an audio stream, but you can download all the mp3s directly if you want. The majority of their selection consists of techno-ish versions of NES and SNES generation music.

2a03.org
A bunch of original and cover songs in NSF (Nintendo Sound Format) -- essentially relying on the same chip that your NES/Famicom used for sound, the 2a03. Just hit the NSF Archive. Requires a player that can play NSF files -- I recommend using the NotSoFatso plugin with Winamp. Some composers are definitely better than others, though. It's hit & miss.

FamiTracker
There are several ways to make your own 2a03-style music -- but I'd say it has the best interface so far, as it's, well, a tracker. But, if you're new to trackers (or composing even), it still takes a little while to get used to it -- and given that it's still pretty early on in versions, there are still a few bugs. Also, there isn't yet support for extended sound chips yet (like the VRC6/7 or the N106). But, you all know how awesome the sounds could be with just the original chip. I'm trying to make my own bits of music now that I've got a better hang of the software -- but, I've got loads of other things I need to tend to first.

Very good site with lots of OST. I get most of my game music there.

For streaming, the fine folks at RPGFan run a good streaming radio station last I checked, if you like RPG soundtracks.


edit: good point, Rid.

this is a good place to ask: does anyone know of a program that converts .NSF to .mp3? I want the famicompo mini files on my mp3 player. I've done googling, but to no avail. maybe my powers are weak?

You could probably use the disk writer plugin in Winamp or whichever player you're using to dump out a WAV file, and then mp3 that. It'd be nice if there was a utility to automate that, though.

Now we post pirated music sites? Can't wait for the warez links.
