  1. The 999 OST has become one of my all-time favorite game soundtracks over the years,, I still listen to it frequently while working. Shinji Hosoe has released a ton of cool 90s-flavored electronic music I think Brett in particular would appreciate, using the (awesome) alias ‘SamplingMasters MEGA’ .

  2. I’ve never played any of these games, but I love the soundtracks now, so thanks for introducing me to them. All the layering, and the subtle tension between the chilled-out elements and the more sinister sounds, reminds me a bit of Download’s “Effector” album.

  3. Never got around to checking this series out despite a bunch of my friends being really into it. This music is really freaking good. Just love the trip-hoppy aspects of it — very chill. If that re-release / remake / repackaging is on Vita or something, maybe I’ll finally give it a shot. The puzzles do seem crazily daunting, though.

  4. I’d never heard of these games, but the soundtracks really tickled my “chill” bone. Excellent episode with a lot of tracks that surprised me–great for listening while drawing (or otherwise being creative.)
