Before he was made of yarn or a stylus-guided sphere, Kirby ruled the original Game Boy and starred in several console classics. This week we examine Kirby’s pre-2000 era, which includes bubbly tunes from Adventure, Super Star and all three Dream Land titles.
ROCKTOBER RETURNS with a month of sinisiter Shin Megami Tensei tunes! We begin with a trio of Super Famicom titles that laid the groundwork for an entire series and its numerous spinoffs, yet never really left Japan. That’s SMT I, II and the lesser known If…
We take a tour through the first three Star Fox soundtracks and discuss the brand’s many unique selling points, from its muppet animal heroes to its gamey-orchestral jams. SNES and N64 tunes incoming!
Look, we had to do a Super Mario episode at some point, and with Mario 64 turning 20 it seemed like a great time to look back on SMB1~64 and discuss its well-known (but still quite good) tunes.
This early Super NES RPG didn’t stand the test of time, but its soundtrack sure did! Listen along as we rattle off some of the game’s incredible Ys-like tunes.
When you think about vikings, you don’t usually picture early 90s dance music. But composer Charles Deenan sure did, and used a mix of keyboards, guitars and beats to craft one of my favorite SNES soundtracks.
Incredible synth jams from two overlooked katana-em-ups. There may only be two games to discuss, but holy crap get ready for sincere 80s awesomeness.
Rocktober 2015 concludes with incredible MM10 jams, surprising tracks from Wily Wars and a trio of tunes from Mega Man and Bass.
We travel from 1995 all the way to 2009 with this look at MM7, 8 and 9. SNES tunes, PSX dance grooves and modern-era chiptunes await.
During a recent trip to Japan, I spent a fair amount of time perusing local game shops and retail chains in search of legit game music purchases. While I did indeed buy a lot while over there, I never did see the OST to the first Wild Arms, which had been on my mind since guest Patrick Kulikowski named one of its songs as his favorite back in VGMpire 100.
But then today I randomly came across that very album on Play Asia… which made me wonder, what other “top tracks” from that episode might be lurking about, ready for some of you FINE LISTENERS to pick up?
