Week in Video Game Inspired Music 2/08 – 2/21

Unfortunately I missed last week's Week in VGIM but oddly enough it was quite the slow week for VGM news and wasn't too tough playing catch up this week. I do hope I did not miss anything though! Up above we have some fantastic artwork by GaryStorkamp aptly named The King of Kong. Also there are plenty new podcasts out from the past two weeks, as well as a good couple interviews and more. GM4A also had it's very awesome second chiptune show, Pizza and Chips 2, which was a pretty rousing success, and a great show was given by all the performers involved. Watch out for a bigger update on that soon. Now for the links!

Up above we have some amazing piece 'Super Smash Bros Brawl' by speedking, who you may remember as the artist for Temp Sound Solutions' Now Your Playing With Powar 7.

VIDEO This weeks video is courtesy of iPhone developer Tag Games who recently announced their newest app, B-Boy Beats. This game will feature a list of nerdcore artists the likes of MC Frontalot, Optimus Rhyme, Id Obelus, Ultraklystron, Rai and Magitek. You can read a preview of the game via iPhone Reviews and it seems the game will be released sometime in February. Check out the trailer below featuring one of my favorite songs by the experimental nerdcore hip hop groups Magitek.

Week in Video Game Inspired Music 12/14 – 12/20

Up above here we have awesome Gameboy artwork by 8bitcollective member MassiveUntilMorning, with his simply titled but well done DMGpaintjob. Speaking of artwork, our resident artist Nyno added an epic Earthbound inspired Krakken to the background, if you had not noticed yet. Well besides that, this week saw a few big things, one is the return of Joe Allen to the Gamewave Podcast, another was our very own first ever GM4A Records release of Challenge! by Comptroller. Be sure to check out both of those, not to mention all the other big news this past week below.

VIDEO The video this week is of course from the recently passed Blip Festival 2009. Well perusing for some recaps of the event I came across little-scale's blog and found some footage of the amazing J. Arthur Keenes Band performing pieces from their latest Pause release Pamplemousse.

Awakening by MOOMANiBE

Another week ended in VGIM and we find ourselves with over 10 new OCReMix tracks to celebrate ten years online. One of which is from good friend XMark who appeared on our second mixtape. Also with the release of Silent Hill: Shattered Memories (which is awesome by the way) for the Wii this week, news comes that Akira Yamaoka has left Konami, making this possibly the final SH soundtrack by him. Finally, up above we have some interesting FF6 (or 3) artwork called Awakening by MOOMANiBE which looks at one part of the game from another perspective. You can check out more of his work on his DeviantArt. Along with last week's picture these may be getting a tad risque, but this is just the awesome stuff I come across. We shall see if next week continues this streak or not.

VIDEO This week we have an awesome video of a performance by Random, AKA Mega Ran. This was from a show I was lucky enough to attend in Los Angeles this past November 27th. Mega Ran put on a great performance, and this is my particular favorite. This was recorded by Jeriaska of Nobuooo.com and you can see the rest of the concert through here. Although if last weeks live chiptunes footage is more up your alley, then check out BOSTON8BIT's youtube page for more footage from that concert!

Galaga by Rocco D Commisso

This week in VGIM, the biggest thing, IS OUR OBVIOUS REDESIGN! Did you not notice!? We got us some nice forums as well too! Well besides that we have some cool news stories, even an in-depth look at the history of chiptunes. Also a few new podcasts and a couple great remixes (Link's Awakening anyone?). Up top we have some fantastic art by Rocco D Commisso who you might know from the great Megas inspired art we featured last year. "Galaga" is the simple name of this great pin-up piece. Also congrats to good pal jmr for his first piece published on OCReMix!
