We’re just about ready to reveal our 2015 Album of the Year (those who listened to the Year in Review probably have a good idea what it’ll be) but before we do, we have a brief Q&A with the composer of last year’s AOTY winner!
Grab a map and some headphones for OverClocked ReMix’s FIIIIIFTY FIIIIIFTH concept album, which focuses on all the great overworld and map tunes from the Mario universe! That means tracks from Super Mario World, Mario 3, New SMB 2 and everything in between. Grab it over here for free!
Rocktober 2015 concludes with incredible MM10 jams, surprising tracks from Wily Wars and a trio of tunes from Mega Man and Bass.
Celebrating 20 years of eggcellent tunes, all the way from the NES to the 3DS.
A salute to menu music, shop songs and other oft ignored tunes from consoles and handhelds.
Our first ever Album of the Year award goes to David Wise’s stunning Tropical Freeze OST. Its varied set list, consistent quality and overall VGM-ness makes it the best video game soundtrack of the year. Discuss!
With the main games out of the way, we now take a quick trip through the world of Pokemon spinoffs.
Every single time I see that classic Capcom logo and its accompanying jingle (you know the one), I instinctively input a code from the Street Fighter II SNES port. At the time, it was DOWN R UP L Y B, and I put that code in countless times from August 1992 to July 1993. A year of that has burned it into my brain so much that when DuckTales Remastered first booted up, I had to try. And would you look at that, WayForward made it so that code unlocks the NES game’s original 8-bit soundtrack.
A thorough look at Donkey Kong Country, from its SNES beginnings to modern Wii revival.
