Oh well that's cool. Didn't know that.

I just wish some guys like and got offered to help with a soundtrack. I know a few guys from OCRemix have been asked, but it would be kinda cool if these guys got a chance to do it. I'm not talking about a whole soundtrack though, perhaps just like a different rendition of a song (Crow's Claw) or singing like a title song or a song in game (The Megas).

Look up the credits for Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Videogame. That's the biggest game I know has had a community chiptuner. Pretty sure the did the entire soundtrack. Also check out the video game music blog on 1up.com.

Brental Floss is apparently going to do a show up here. I don't know why he is since he tends to stay near New York and we're about as far from New York as you can get in the states, but I'm excited. Crazy Duck in Space or we riot!

Street Fighter II Image Album. 1991, performed by Alfh Lyra:







Those are the best ones off the album, but the best video game music I have ever heard, bar none.

Quote from: A translation
Silver Will performed by Falcom JDK, Spring 2008.

I wrote this in Japanese because I wanted to.

That's what I was trying to say at least. I probably didn't get it quite right, as my Japanese isn't great. Just did it for the hell of it.

A fantastic piano arrangement of Wind Garden. Its definitely going on my iPod. The most amazing thing is this was Squint's (remixer's handle) first actual remix. And it was also done after only one jazz class. So while it retains quite a bit of classical, its also got a soft bit of jazz in there which actually fits well into the piece and makes it perfect. The other nice thing about this piece is you never hear the same thing twice. Simply fucking awesome.

Its songs like these that make me appreciate the original piece and what the remixer brings to the table. Because its the remixer's love of the original piece that allows this to shine so brightly.

I loved playing Sim City on the SNES for hours as a kid.  The music on the game is good, but this orchestral version really takes it to the next level.  I agree with commenter who says it has a "John Williams feel to it".

I'm convinced that these Bust a Groove songs would be massive hits if they weren't made for video games. This next one is for the PS2 sequel that never got localized.

One of the first games that I became aware of video game music was Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV: Turtles in Time to the point that I would literally play the game just to hear the music.  Bonus for the following videos including the voice part at the front.

Okay, that video game's evolution of music was just fantastic. Not only because it was done on Mario Paint Composer, but each tune he picked really worked well in showing the evolution of how songs got more complex and dazzling as they went on.

And I'm even more shocked that for the obligatory Final Fantasy tune, he picked that one. Nice stuff. Thanks for posting that Venk.

I downloaded every 8 bit Mega Man tune last night for my ipod.. just because I get in moods where I NEED to hear Crashman's music or I'll go nuts humming it in my head. ;)

Anyway, while I was looking for those, I found a huge collection of NES music so I grabbed that too. I now have this oldie but goodie stuck in my head:

If you look back on the 8 Bit era, its quite amazing how some pieces of music turned out from that era. I mean, the limitations on the software to do the music meant we got some absolutely creative songs.

But you know what? I can't honestly say that I've heard many new songs that I love from the current generation of games. I mean, yes, I have a like one or two, but that's it. I'm not sure if that's because the music altogether is that much better that nothing stands out, or if we don't have that same creativity back in the 8 Bit era.

Also, I'm talking new tracks. Not tracks from older games that constantly get redone.

Found a handful of free apps on the Droid market allowing the user to download soundboards of various video game music and themes, and thus allowing the user to convert the sounds to ringtones/alert tones.

So far I've obtained all of the Zelda, Mario, and Mario Kart game themes from beginning to most recent. And it was free and a lot easier than trying to hack the damn phone.
