  1. Dies Irae is used as Wolfgang Krauser's theme in the Fatal Fury/King of Fighters series. Here are a few different versions: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3bkOTToID_c
  2. I just listened to and now my ears are BLEEEEEEDINGGGGG
  3. I received the cd in the mail a few days ago, and right now I'm listening to it at work I'm really enjoying the album. Some spacesynth albums have the tendency sound a bit repetitive after a few tracks, but thankfully there's a lot of variation here. Oh and Zircon, your track rules. I love that bubbly SID-like sound!
  4. Awesome. Within 10 seconds of listening to the megamix, I knew I was going to order this CD. I love 80's synth music like Laserdance, Jean Michel Jarre and Gazebo, so this is right up my alley!
  5. Seeing as this is a site about VG music, I expected this thread to be slightly more popular... Oh well. If anyone is still interested, RPGFan also has quite a large database of VG album reviews.

    Activision

    Activision was awesome during the 8bit era. Just thinking about classic games like Pitfall 1 & 2, Keystone Kapers, H.E.R.O., River Raid and Decathlon brings back many great memories of being a kid in the 80's...
  7. Don't you guys wonder what the OP-bot is planning to do with all this information? I foresee a future where mankind is enslaved by Powerglove-wielding R.O.B.'s.
  8. Yeah, I wonder if those games will look very dated in a few years. Personally I'm sick of all the brown/gray city slums, warzones and apocalyptic wastelands we've seen this generation. And while some of the games that featured those kind of graphics were great, I do think that this kind of aesthetic will look very dated in the near future.
  9. Sometimes I like to boot up the Virtual Console and play some old games like Golden Axe, Bonk's Adventure, Shinobi, Wonderboy III: The Dragon's Trap, E-Swat and countless other gems from the 8bit & 16bit era. While the graphics and gameplay might be primitive by today's standards, I think those retro games are still pleasant to look at and fun to play. I'm still impressed whenever I see lovely parallax scrolling or sprite manipulation in games like Gunstar Heroes or Castlevania IV, and headbutting dinosaurs & throwing shurikens at helicopters is still as fun as it was way back in the l
  10. I dig the name and icon choice.

  11. Here's a few sites I visit when I need info about video game albums: VGMDb - The Videogame Music Database, a community project dedicated to cataloguing every game music album ever released. Original Sound Version - A nice blog about VG music that's updated regularly. Square Enix Music Online - Don't let the name of this site fool you, because there's a LOT of info to be found about non-Square Enix albums. The large reviews database can be a great help when you want to be sure if an album is worth buying. Chudah's Corner - Quite a bit of info about game soundtracks, but unfortunately the site h
  12. Strange... With headphones on, I can hear them all. Without my headphones I can't hear 17 & 18, but the rest sounds fine. I'm 31 years old. GET OFF MY LAWN!
