Hey all- I am new to game music collecting and this community, but in my recent searching I have come across some cool stuff- this website, VGMdb, and a cool website called Originalsoundversion.com by way of VGMdb. Well on originalsoundversion I came across some posts about a chiptune label called Ubiktune and I am pretty impressed by a lot of the content on that site! Anyone else listen to Ubiktune or associated groups?
What first got me was Zeta Force by Zabutom, Tree of Knowledge, then Game Genie by Shnabubula, and now I am rocking out to Beautiful Lifestyle by George & Jonathan! I post this stuff on my facebook and nobody ever responds. My quote unquote friends don't understand me! Or at least appreciate what I do. :'(
Surely some of you here do!
Big Giant Circles went the extra mile and printed a physical copy:

But I can see both sides of the argument- it was pretty cool to paypal $5 and then burn my own copy of Zeta Force!
Just a little update to gush over the new releases:
The Soundshock release is really good:

Shnabubula's new album is brilliant interpretations of classic VGM
Virt's new album FX4 has tons of attitude
Maxo's album Fakebit is a class act
Ubiktune is knocking them all out of the park!
Both FM SOUNDSHOCK releases range from quite good to unbelievable in quality. I personally prefer the second release, as it's got the better selection of FM-ready artists, some highly-representative and quality material from each artist, and better overall album low and adherence to the themes presented on the cover. Outside of that: Shnabubula's recent release Starbound is glorious (as would be expected), and I loved Coda's first release. Heard everything else is great, too, but some of it is inaccessible to a broke high-school student like me. Oh well.
OK if you haven't checked out the new release yet, I think it's really good:
Rhythm 'n' Bits by Yoann Turpin

Has anyone checked out some of the latest offering from ubiktune, two fear of dark albums in one month are really high-quality chiptune!!
