Weird Music: Henry Hatsworth and classic opera scenes in gaming history

In the latest episode of Weird Music, ReZonance takes on Henry Hatsworth, and a very niche genre of video game music, opera. From the classic moment in Final Fantasy VI, to a very different kind of classic moment in Conker's Bad Fur Day for the N64. ReZonance then introduces fans to an opera scene that might not be quite so familiar, that of 2009 DS title, Henry Hatsworth and the Puzzling Adventure. Which of the three does ReZonance think stands above the rest? Enjoy the video to find out.

When you think of Video game music, i'm sure Operas don't really come to mind. There's a few good Operas out there, but the Great Mighty Poo comes to mind most often...unfortunately. Well here's another ridiculous chunk of video game music that is another outstanding Opera piece.

ReZonence is where you go for video game soundtracks. I've always loved the music in video games, and reviewing them is my way to show my appreciation, and spread my love of gaming music.
