Stirring acoustic arrangements of several classic game themes, including Ace Attorney, a few Final Fantasy titles, Super Mario RPG, all capped off with a few haunting Zelda remixes.Read More
A while back, the VGM duo Frog & Cid were kind enough to share this track from their debut album of VGM rearrangements, Boss Chamber Music. The Frog & Cid arrangement starts off appropriately slow, letting each note rise and fall up until the Skull Kid's sudden appearance. The mood shifts quickly into the upbeat sounds of Lost Woods, and seems to careen out of control up until the end. Be sure to grab this track an the full Boss Chamber Music album for approximately $10 from Loudr, iTunes, Spotify, and/or Google Play.
Ninten With Attitude.
Forget the game themed specials, this is an N.W.A. themed episode. We got Dre, Eazy, Ice, and Ren over select video game beats in this episode. The latest video game based lyrics corner meshes together the worlds of Earthbound Beginnings and classic N.W.A. I also talk about my early love for gangsta rap, and my current love for Advance Wars!
Not one, not two, but over two dozen laid back beats from music producer Magicxbeats. Get your fix of chill remixes ranging from tons of VGM new and old. From Chrono Cross to Final Fantasy XIII-2, from Mortal Kombat 3 to Marvel vs Capcom 2, with dozens of tracks in between. Nearly every system from the past twenty-something years is represented in this massive collection of amazing tunes.
With this many tracks, I've got to point out some of my favorites, including the video game sampled intro that really sets the tone for the full album. The aforementioned MvC2 gets a lovely remix of the famous Clock Tower theme. A nearly six minute remix of The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time's Windmill Hut is a hypnotic track to light up to. Despite the nostalgia permeating the aforementioned tracks, my absolute favorite has emerged as the stirring remix of Pokemon Black & White track "Emotion"
I also can't forget the outro, which is simply, and appropriately, the audio of one of my favorite sketches from The Chapelle's Show.
You can have the entire collection for a mere $5 via Magicxbeats bandcamp site.
A chilling piano arrangement of the carefree tune.
A chilling piano based adventure in the Hyrule market from Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time. I think this track will be an instant classic for anyone who is a fan of the game.
Awesome artwork from Matt Rockefeller over on INPRNT showing that it doesn't take much to get kids off the couch and into the wild. Though parents probably aren't too enthused once those kids come back inside.
