Orchestra! Orchestra bias!

Let's get down to business. Here are the tunes!

Stage 1 (the journey begins): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fGx8NUmsGj0&fmt=18

Stage 2 (utilizes the same motif, more tension/excitement): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gxv75dSnAyY&fmt=18

Stage 3 (short, ominous, with another splash of that motif): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qmfa6kteGyI&fmt=18

Stage 4 (upbeat, hoorah-ish): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4H7qEx8p3Bs&fmt=18

Almost dead (aaaahhh!): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XrTALaa6zLA&fmt=18

[No psfs because it's all orchestral, so no sequenced tracks. And yes, I know they have official names, but that's only on the soundtrack (vgmdb: "I.Q Perfect Music File" [sic]) where some the tracks are shorter (certain sections were likely repeated in-game, but the game is how I know the music so that's what I'm linking) and where bunch of other tracks are included that, while also outstanding, weren't in the game itself.]

I'm abusing this forum again by posting bits of a soundtrack that is already excellent enough that I don't think it needs remixing but rather should be known by more people. That's not to say that it can't - or shouldn't - be done; it's just to say that topping an orchestra (with a decent score to boot) is not the easiest of endeavors. Hat tip to the mixers who have done it already.

I'm also not saying that this is the bee's knees, but if you like orchestral then you will surely enjoy this meow.

Remixers: no remix from this has been posted yet on any of the usual suspects' websites, so if you get a wild hair then you can be the first to grow that chia pet.

Gamers: it's a PS1 game that has a nice blend of puzzle and action, requiring quick thinking and quick reflexes. A good pickup if you like that and can find it for $10-15. I more than got my money's worth out of it the first time around; currently on my second relapse.

Qube: it's what's for dinner.

These aren't the Qubes you're looking for.

Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah Quatamari Damacy.

Holy crap I forgot about this game. I used to play the $#!@ out of the demo when it was on a demo disc. I'd love to see a remix.


By the way, K.B., are you serious about finding this for 10-15 dollars? Most places I've looked are sold out, and the few that do have it are charging 40 or more. I'd rather have it on the PSP, but that version is even harder to find. Any ideas?

That was "if you... can find it". I found it a few years ago for about that and I was indicating that, at that price, it would definitely be a good pickup. Seems you can find the Japan-only, PS2 re-release for about that, but that probably doesn't help (PS2 has region lockout). And the I.Q Mania you're talking about is probably rarer since it was also a Japan-only release... I found a 'buy it now' for $35, but what you described seems to be the ballpark.

So no, I don't know of any secret place to buy cheap games. Stalk ebay? Get lucky on craigslist?
