Bloody Wolf is one of my all time favorites from the 8-bit and 16-bit eras of gaming. It’s a flawed masterpiece for the Turbo-Grafx 16, and has a banger of a soundtrack. But this wouldn’t be a normal #MusicMonday if I didn’t try to find a remixed version of one of my favorite video game tunes, would it?
Here comes a heavy metal instrumental version of the first stage, courtesy of Sixto Sounds. Enjoy!
#MusicMonday returns with another fine track to start your week. This time, I’m bringing the beachy, seductive vibes of “Old Metal Gear” from the Metal Gear Solid 3 soundtrack. I recently re-exported the entire soundtrack from disc to my computer, and fell in love again with this track along with the entire score. Kick back and relax with this one after a long day at work. Maybe a Margherita would be in order, too.
It’s Monday, but not just any Monday. It’s #MusicMonday. Turn up the volume and get your heart pumping with the menu theme from one of my favorite games, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. I remember having a hard time hitting the start button when I first played the demo of this hack and slasher. It’s energetic, orchestral, and gets you amped up to crush some robot spines. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Until next time..
When The Game Awards aired last week, I expected to have dissenting opinions on wins and losses, and hoped for some awesome game trailers. What I didn’t expect was to hear an amazing song that I’ve been addicted to ever since.
“Home Call,” by The Toxic Avenger, played during the trailer for Road 96, (which also looks like my kind of game), and it’s been on constant rotation ever since. I hope it’s actually in the game too. It’s quite fantastic.
#MusicMonday returns with one more track from The Last Guardian. Get swept away with emotions while you listen to “Forest”. The Last Guardian is an unforgettable story, and the soundtrack is equally unforgettable in my opinion. It’s got that big orchestral story driven sound you’d expect from a major motion picture, and who doesn’t appreciate that? There are notes of mystery, suspense, solitude, sadness, and every human emotion packed into this track, and the rest of this brilliant score. “Forest” soars with orchestral textures, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
#MusicMonday returns with “Prologue” from Shadow Of The Colossus. Accompanying the game’s introduction cinematic, Prologue shines with emotion, sadness, loneliness, and hope. There’s a lot of mystery embedded in the flutes, voices, strings, and melodies that engulf your senses. I really enjoyed this soundtrack, and I think it’s fitting for the game’s premise and atmosphere. A story was captured with this score, and Prologue is a showstopper. Enjoy.
Spiritfarer has become one of my favorite games of 2020. It’s a relaxing and gentle game with some serious subject matter behind it. The music is moving and graceful in a way that feels appropriate. Whether you’re guiding Stella’s boat across the seas, or giving one final hug to your loved ones, Spiritfarer’s soundtrack will strike the perfect chords.
Wow, folks. Just wow. I haven’t played The Last Guardian yet, however, it’s getting played this week, for sure. I love video game soundtracks, and I often will preview a games score before playing the game. I think it’s safe to say that some soundtracks have sort of, forced me to like mediocre games. Anyway, this soundtrack is soul stirring, uplifting, sad, and invigorating all at the same time. I hope you find solace in this wondrous piece from what appears to be, a very magical game.
