Super Mario 3D All-Stars was released earlier this month, and there’s a ton of catchy music in Super Mario 64. I’ve been enjoying the upbeat and catchy tunes, thanks to composer Koji Kondo, and I’m really digging this live performance of Bob-Omb Battlefield thanks to the Super Soul Bros. Check it out!
#MusicMonday returns with “Character Creation Theme” from the Demon’s Souls soundtrack. With the new hype surrounding BluePoint’s Remake of this spectacular game, I felt it appropriate to share this brooding tune. When creating your class, you’re greeted with this haunting, ethereal theme that just loops as it immediately sets the tone for foggy world you’ll be living in for awhile. It’s perfect for reading, studying, meditating, or dare I say it…folding laundry.
Arguably the most identifiable track in C&C history, Act on Instinct is the first song you hear when you load up the game and start playing. It’s this weird mix of techno rock and fits the mood of the game perfectly. Easily one of my favorite tracks from composer Frank Klepacki.
Hey Folks! Music Monday is back with a track from one of my most beloved franchises. “Intruder”, from the original Metal Gear Solid, I personally think defines the atmosphere, perfectly. High Hat shimmers, cricket sounds, bass-y themes, and dramatic sound effects. I honestly think it’s very difficult to describe the ambient tracks for this game. With that said, enjoy the track for yourself! Snaaaaaaakkkkeeee!!!!
This is the Mother Base theme from one of my favorite Metal Gear Solid games, Peace Walker. This is one of those tracks that has that arresting quality as you’re navigating the menus. I could just sit there for hours listening to this while folding laundry.
