That is not a song description. That is not a fan name or joke. The official name of one of long-running puzzle game series Puyo Puyo’s songs is, seriously, “Fun Puyo Puyo Hell!”
A few days ago, I wrote some thoughts on Dystifyzer’s 24/7 Nintendo music stream, which you can read about here. However, I lamented that the stream was not a true 24/7 stream, and there would be multiple days at a time when the stream was simply not up. But no more! The donation goal has been reached, and the…
Getting introduced to songs like this are why I thank god for games like Rock Band.
A bustling urban epicenter, especially one scattered across a multitude of floating islands, warrants a bold musical statement that matches its liveliness.
A few weeks ago, I saw a live-stream for Nintendo music on my suggested videos for YouTube. I clicked, and it took me to basically a non-stop, ad-free, radio station for Nintendo music. I usually looked up playlists for Nintendo music, but those eventually ended. This stream would go on forever!
The theme songs for the Terrans were always my favorite ones back when I was a youngster playing StarCraft. Fast-forward many years to StarCraft II, and behold.
As I’d written about in yesterday’s article, (well, today’s because of “technical difficulties”) I love the voice acting in Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia. And I feel like I’ve committed an atrocity for not mentioning how absolutely beautiful the music is. However, these enhancements to the audio make me not…
My two greatest passions in life have always been video games and music, in that order. The wonder twins have activated their power and the planeteers have combined theirs. Last Day of June is an upcoming game inspired by the music of my favorite musical artist, Steven Wilson.
The rhythm genre is an often overlooked corner of the gaming world. After the rise and fall of mainstream titles like Guitar Hero and Rock Band, music fans have turned to more quirky offerings such as Hatsune Miku, Rhythm Heaven, and Thumper. Last December Sony decided to dip their toe back in the rhythm pond by…
First released on November 18, 2012, the Wii U always had a difficult task to overcome. And while the console was deemed a failure since its inception, there was one thing Nintendo learned during the lifespan of its ill-fated console: The perfect marriage of music and gameplay.
I can’t talk about good fighting game music without mentioning the famous Tekken series, one of Bandai Namco’s most famous IPs to ever hit the gaming industry.
In this post, I’m highlighting one of the best character select themes to come out of the King Of Fighters series: it’s from KOF 2000.
Track: Saturnz Barz (Spirit House) | Artist: Gorillaz | Album: Humanz
A while ago I wrote about my favorite anime openings and video game openings and vaguely remembered I was supposed to do endings next. I got side tracked by the disappointment of Final Fantasy 15 and the new patches in Final Fantasy 14 that I kinda forgot about it. Add in that I got a gig writing about video games…
Track: Hallelujah Money | Artist: Gorillaz feat. Benjamin Clementine | Single
Track: New Year’s Day | Artist: U2 | Album: War
In 2016, hundreds of my hours were spent focusing on how not to die in video games. I failed at that task multiple times. That’s nothing new. In most cases, I managed to survive to see their respective end credits roll. In those life and death cycles, thank goodness good music scored my successes and failures.
Well, we’ve reached the end of another year, which means I’m back with a list of my favorite music releases this year. 2016 was a pretty rotten year, but there was still a ton of fantastic music that came out, at least in the genres I enjoy. This year I’ve listened to more new music than I have in a long time, 45…
2016 has been quite the year for many. Good year or bad year, there is no denying that there has been an absurd amount of quality music released in the last 12 months. However despite the consistent quality across the board, I have some favorites. Favorites which I shall be sharing in the ever classy list format here.
