Chrono Trigger - Secret of the forest

I had to follow up the last piece with another forest related one in another SNES RPG! Love the bass track on this one.

On another note, I'm gonna be attending video games live tonight. Should be pretty EPIC!

Secret of Mana - Into the Thick of it

Woke up this morning with this song in my head. Awesome song, awesome game. People, do your self a favor... play this song on your mp3 player, then run threw a forest. It's mind blowing, I promise! : D

C&C Red Alert 1(and 3) - Hell March

While we're on the subject of HELLghast MARCH, I thought I'd post this one too. This is my official theme for conquering the universe! If you're wondering what the guy is shooting in German at the beginning, apparently it is "Die Waffen legt an!", roughly translated as "Ready weapons!".

I'll also post the cover they made for the song in Red alert 3 right here:

Killzone - Helghast March

Another great piece here from the first Killzone on the PlayStation 2. I especially enjoy the switch in theme starting at 1:35. Indeed, at the beginning it's like "oh shit they're coming and we're all screwed!" but then, comes the 1:35 part and it's like "ok, there's still some hope, lets kill those idiots!".

The Legend of Dragoon - If You Still Believe

I remember the first time I played this game and heard this song; it had to be epic! And surely, in my opinion, it was yet another success  for the PlayStation 1 RPG scene. Unfortunately, the game received mixed reviews.

Metal Gear Solid - The best is yet to come

Man... This song just makes me feel like growing a garden and joining Greenpeace! Seriously though, thanks to this song, this is probably the best credit roll in video game history! The song was composed by Rika Mrunaka(who also worked on other great titles like Castlevania: Symphony of the night) and performed by Aoife Ni Fhearraigh, an Irish singer.

Anyways, Metal Gear Solid is a game to be praised and remembered. If you missed its first incarnation, try at least to pick up it's remake; Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes.

Donkey Kong Country 2 - Stickerbrush Symphony

If you never played Donkey Kong country 1-2-3 on the SNES well you missed something in your life. The graphics were awesome for the time, the gameplay was spectacular and the music was excellent! Too bad that David Wise (the British composer for DK1-2-3) doesn't have the chance to make more of this high quality music. Indeed, he hasn't been employ for any big projects in years(his last big game was StarFox Adventures).

Anyways, expect to hear more DK songs on this blog in the future.

Megam Man X6 - Blaze Heatnic

This is easily one the most awesome song ever made in video-games. The whole soundtrack from Mega Man X6 is actually pretty impressive. Well, music has always been one of the series strong point anyways.

Mortal Kombat 3 - The Temple

To celebrate the recent release of the new Mortal Kombat, here's one of my favorite song from the serie! By reading my blog you'll see that I'm a big fan of music that has this baroque feels to it like this piece.

Anyways, I'm so gonna go buy the new MK this week! Can't wait! (I know I said I'm not a big fan of fighting games in another post but... MK is different!... Fatalities!)

Guilty Gear X 2 - Awe of She

Ahhh Guilty Gear... Daisuke Ishiwatari (the composer of the Guilty Gear ost) is simply crazy. The only reason I ever liked this game is because of the music in it! I'm not really a big fan of fighting games usually because I'm too lazy to learn all the different combos and stuff. With that said, I could still play GG all day long thanks to this music!

First song: Warcraft 2 - Orc 01

Here it is! The first song of my blog! I was wondering what song I should use to open everything up and this came to mind. I wouldn't say it's my favorite video-game song but it's definitely up there among the bests! Indeed, the whole soundtrack for warcraft 2 was pretty impressive. I would argue that it is easily the best soundtrack ever made by Blizzard. It's a shame that they took a different musical approach after warcraft 2/starcraft. The soundtrack for Warcraft 3 is more ambient than melodic.

Music in video game is awesome!

Lots of video-games have pretty awesome music. I created this blog so that I could share the music that I enjoyed during my gaming life to anyone who happens to end up on this blog. I'll try to post a song every week. If you have any suggestions, feel free to post a comment!
