I was laughing the whole way through.
Perhaps we should do a duet. Quack.
Interesting rhythm, with enough variation to keep it interesting the entire time, as well as having an awesome title.
I'm fully expecting a 17-minute long (0)588235294117647 now.
haha, on it chief.
I clicked on this expecting it to be the kind of rubbish I'd throw together, with no cohesion and cheap standard MIDI instruments thrown over a basic drumbeat, along with "video games" being represented by a very small subset of single-console games from one particular time period.
This did not meet my expectations. And that is a good thing.
Not only has the instrumentation been thought through for every single track, but the songs gel relatively well together, and there's such a wide range of games covered that I don't think anyone can be disappointed with this selection. (I mean, not only are all the standards like Sonic, Mario, Golden Axe, and Tetris covered, but also the lesser-heard Chu Chu Rocket and Crash Bandicoot, recent games like GTA and Halo, and even things like Classic Game Room and Ragnarok, all of their themes (or at least themes associated with the game, like Angel Island for Sonic 3) instantly identifiable.
Sometimes the themes aren't blended together enough, and just seem like two separate songs; but this doesn't happen often enough and isn't major enough for me to even knock half a star off.
Also, I thought Nozomi's Theme was an odd choice for Shenmue, as well as being an odd arrangement... but 59/60 isn't bad. ;)
Fantastic. I haven't heard the first two parts, but if they're of this quality then they're definitely worth listening to.
Normally, I like to review by pointing out problems first. But I'm struggling here.
The track has such a feel-good vibe it's infectious. It just bundles along under its own energy. It should get repetitive quickly, but you manage to avoid that with some subtle variations to keep it new and interesting.
Really, the only problem with it is the fact that it has to end.
