Gaming in Stereo: Double Dragon Friday

[display_podcast] We round out the week of look­ing back at some clas­sic games with one of my per­son­al favorites from my time in the arcades and in front of my NES. Dou­ble Drag­on may have had some recent trou­ble stay­ing on the XBLA but Still billed as an arcade favorite, and had mul­ti­ple releas­es and spin offs, this brawler still holds its own. There were some games in the ven­er­a­ble series I skipped, I did play 1–3 and Bat­tle­toads and Dou­ble Drag­ons. I also checked out the GBA remake and is one of my favorite games from the GBA era. Today’s track, Enter the Guru by Nin­ten­do Guru takes me back to the sum­mer days spent in Gig­gles, my local arcade. I can still smell the Piz­za Boy across from the arcade. Have a great week­end every­one.   http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR00963/

Gaming in Stereo: Pokémon Thursday

[display_podcast] We will con­tin­ue the trend of clas­sic tunes with this awe­some ver­sion of a Game Boy sta­ple. I was just start­ing high school when the orig­i­nal Blue and Red hit the NA shores and it instant­ly became a hit with my friends and fam­i­ly. I bought a Game Boy specif­i­cal­ly to play Poké­mon and have enjoyed the series to this day, I still play Poké­mon: Black on occa­sion. Today we cel­e­brate Poké­mon with The Mighty Mighty Poké­mon (~Open­ing~ Demo 2) by Lev­el 99 off the Poké­mon: The Miss­ing­no Tracks album. So rock out with some Poké­mon is this week ded­i­cat­ed to clas­sic gam­ing. http://missingno.ocremix.org/

Gaming in Stereo: Classics Continued Wednesday

[display_podcast] Yes, yes I know; two Halo songs in one week, this is an out­rage! But I want­ed to take the rest of the week to ded­i­cate the arti­cle to clas­sic video game tunes, ones that every­one should know no mat­ter how “Hard­core” or “Casu­al” you are. Today’s is, I would say, the most mem­o­rable tune to come from the orig­i­nal Xbox. Halo Theme Mjol­nir Mix by Mar­tin o’Don­nell off of the Halo 2 Offi­cial Sound­track is as icon­ic as the mas­sive size of the Xbox and the “Duke” con­troller. So, sit back and enjoy the rock anthem that defined a con­sole and have a great Wednes­day. http://www.bungiestore.com/Halo-2-Vol.-1/A/B00067RF6E.htm

Gaming in Stereo: Classic Tuesday

  [display_podcast]   Today we are going to do things very sim­ple and lis­ten to a clas­sic. A sim­ple tune from every gamer’s his­to­ry and one that came in a superb pack­age. The Ground Theme (From Super Mario Broth­ers) is one game theme that you can even catch casu­al gamers hum­ming from time to time. This song is from my per­son­al copy of the Super Mario All-Stars Lim­it­ed Edi­tion that was released for the Wii in late 2010. It was a good ded­i­ca­tion to cel­e­brate the 25th anniver­sary of the Mario fran­chise. Enjoy clas­sic Tues­day!     http://www.amazon.com/Super-Mario-All-Stars-Limited-Nintendo-Wii/dp/B0049DYNNO/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1330409211&sr=8–1

Gaming in Stereo: Somber Halo Monday

[display_podcast] Today we take a look back at anoth­er Halo 3 song off the offi­cial sound­track. Say what you will about the Halo series, but Mar­tin O’Donnell and Michael Sal­va­tore have cre­at­ed an epic in the sound depart­ment. Today’s track is Nev­er For­get, a beau­ti­ful orches­tra and piano suite that echo’s the sor­row, the sac­ri­fice, the epic con­flict that spanned across the galaxy and beyond. I just can’t get enough of this sound­track and the series. In a world full of “mod­ern” set­ting shoot­ers, I real­ly miss the epic sci-fi con­flict. I hope you enjoy this calm and somber Mon­day. http://www.bungiestore.com/category/30116721781/1/Soundtracks.htm

Gaming in Stereo: Lost Planet Friday

[display_podcast] Lost Plan­et came out ear­ly in the 360’s life span and is still one of my favorite games of this cur­rent gen­er­a­tion. The game was clear­ly made by a Japan­ese devel­op­er for a west­ern audi­ence, there are foot­prints all over. Though despite this being a first attempt at cre­at­ing a game for the west­ern audi­ences, mas­ter mind Kei­ji Ina­fu­ne help cre­ate a game that had a great sin­gle play­er as well as a great inter­na­tion­al online com­mu­ni­ty. Lost Plan­et was one of the first games I played on Xbox Live and I made a lot of inter­na­tion­al friends due to the pop­u­lar­i­ty of the game across the pond. Today’s track comes from the collector’s edi­tion that I have and sad­ly is the only way to get the sound­track. The good news is they are on Ama­zon for twen­ty bucks,Read more…

Gaming in Stereo: Bottom Feeder Thursday

[display_podcast] This song was one of the rea­sons I start­ed this fea­ture arti­cle. I would lis­ten to this song in the show­er, in the car, on walks, and any­time in between. This is one of my favorite songs in gam­ing and off the Bas­tion: Offi­cial Sound­track. I can’t give Dar­ren Korb enough praise for the sound­track. This song comes late in the game but just has a puls­ing beat and a hint of Ara­bic tones; it’s just a won­der­ful mix. Today’s song is The Bot­tom Feed­ers; I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.   http://store.supergiantgames.com/collections/frontpage/products/official-bastion-soundtrack-digital-download

Gaming in Stereo: Sephiroth Wednesday

[display_podcast] I start­ed this fea­ture with one of gaming’s great­est hero’s, now we look at one of gaming’s great­est vil­lains. Sephi­roth is just one of those vil­lains you either love because of his bad fac­tor, or hate and weep because he is evil and killed Aerith. Today’s song is off of the same BadAss: Boss Themes album that last week’s Shred­der tune came from. Sephi­roth (Final Fan­ta­sy VII) BadAzz by Pro­to­type­R­ap­tor is full of pulse pound­ing beats that make me want to pop in Advent Chil­dren. I was going to do this song a few weeks ago, sor­ry for the delay. SEPHIROTH! http://badass.ocremix.org/

Gaming in Stereo: Kirby Tuesday Redux

 [display_podcast]   Last Tues­day we fea­tured Kir­by and we are going to do it again, because I say so. Actu­al­ly I came across this song while lis­ten­ing to last weeks and fell in love with it. Gen­er­al­ized Veg­e­tal –Theme of Star Gen­er­al by Tren­thi­an is just awe­some. The soft brass and strings come to a crescen­do mid­way through to cul­mi­nate a great melody that just gives the pic­ture of Kir­by march­ing along into an adven­ture. A soft flute fin­ish­es the tune and takes us back into dream­land. I real­ly enjoy these remix­es, espe­cial­ly the Nin­ten­do trib­utes. There is a cer­tain mag­i­cal feel to Nin­ten­do that can’t be described, only felt in that joy­ous smile while play­ing some­thing like Kir­by. The song is off the Rise of the Star: The Kirby’s Adven­ture Remix Col­lab­o­ra­tion, same as last weeks and I imploreRead more…

Gaming in Stereo: Metal Gear Monday

  [display_podcast]   I am final­ly get­ting around to fin­ish­ing Met­al Gear Sol­id 4; I have had the game since 2008, and now for the out­cries of hate. I love the game, just oth­ers came out and well the rest is his­to­ry. I am almost fin­ished with it but I have always loved the music of the series and today we are cel­e­brat­ing it with a fan­tas­tic remix. Today’s track is a treat, Met­al Gear Sol­id ‘The Price of Free­dom’ by Evan Arnett, Jan­na McKin­ley, and Jonathan Mills is a com­bi­na­tion of themes from Met­al Gear Sol­id. So now go and spend you Mon­day morn­ing enjoy­ing the sounds of Tac­ti­cal Espi­onage Action and wait, Snake? Snake? SNNNAAKEEE?   http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR02368/
