Re: The videogame music thread (also Sound of Play submissions)

About once a year, I dust off my Wii U to replay Earthbound, a game which has cemented itself as my favorite of all time. The culminating battle of the game has been written about extensively already, but this piece of the soundtrack was burned into my brain long before internet forums and blogs had...

Re: The videogame music thread (also Sound of Play submissions)

Boys, this needs to happen. When the Link's Awakening remake got announced, I had a minor heart attack. Finally, a remake of something I actually liked. And when I heard the ending theme had been rearranged into this, it was an amazingly bittersweet moment for me. Quest complete, childhood relived, ...

Re: The videogame music thread (also Sound of Play submissions)

Do you mind playing Counterattack from the Xenoblade Chronicles 2 soundtrack? It's over-dramatic and bombastic, like a Saturday morning cartoon, and it's glorious.

Re: 306: Final Fantasy II

Final Fantasy II is pretty maligned by the gaming community, but it is one of my favorite classic RPGs. The Dawn of Souls rendition, in particular, makes significant fixes to the original, smoothing many of the game's rougher edges. The skill based leveling system, while implemented in a rather cumb...

Re: The videogame music thread (also Sound of Play submissions)

Loved the last episode of the pod, keep it up!

As an added bonus, Etrian Odyssey 5 is out in the West in a few short days... Can we get one of these killer battle tracks on the pod?

Re: The videogame music thread (also Sound of Play submissions)

Could you play 'The End of Raging Winds' from the Etrian Odyssey 4 soundtrack? The tune was originally featured in Etrian Odyssey 3, then updated to use live players for the series' move to the 3DS. The first three minutes is a pretty good showing; the guitar solo at 2:40 is particularly shredworthy...

Re: The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds

Link Between Worlds is the only modern Zelda game I would recommend to a non-gamer who wanted to know what Zelda is all about. It captures the exploration, puzzles, and feeling of acomplishment that established the Zelda series at the start, and it lacks the annoyances of the 3D games. There is no c...

Re: The videogame music thread (also Sound of Play submissions)

I'm still in the process of looking through the archives, but has Sound of Play included any tracks from the Etrian Odyssey series? Those games have some killer tracks, especially during the 3DS era when the sound upgraded to live players. "The End of Raging Winds" from EO4 (originally fea...

Re: The Nintendo news and discussion thread

As an unrelated update... There's a rumor floating around that Mother 3 may be getting a Western release on the Switch virtual console.
