Gaming in Stereo: Robot Master Friday

      [display_podcast] Two Mega Man days in a row how great is that? Today’s song comes from a unique album that came from Over Clocked, its mixed bag of music but every piece is dif­fer­ent. Mega Man: The Robot Muse­um is a col­lec­tion of remix­es high­light­ing one robot mas­ter from Mega Man 1–8 and includ­ing Bass from Mega Man 7. Today’s track Pow­er Stone (Mega Man 5 – Stone Man) by Joshua Morse is full of fun dance beats and a hint of gui­tars here and there. This is a real­ly fun track, great way to start the week­end.

Gaming in Stereo: Blue Bomber Thursday

[display_podcast] Last Mon­day I fea­tured a Mega Man tune that cranked up the heavy met­al, this week we go a bit elec­tron­ic with one of the most mem­o­rable and just one of the best open­ing themes in all of gam­ing. Mega Man 3 ‘Mega Man 2003’ remixed by Gecko Yamori is a fan­tas­tic trib­ute to one of the great­est in games in Mega Man’s NES days. The sub­tle piano open­ing leads into an all out glow stick trib­ute. Gets your blood pump­ing this morn­ing with a bit of Mega Man tech­no because hon­est­ly, what else could be bet­ter? As always hit the link to down­load the track.

Gaming in Stereo: Bastion Wednesday

    [display_podcast]   Today we get to lis­ten to a song off one of my favorite sound­tracks of last year, Bas­tion. Bas­tion was a sur­prise for me. The game was not on my radar until the games for last year’s XBLA sum­mer of arcade were announced. The game caught me off guard and when I reviewed it I want­ed to give it a per­fect score just out of shear love for the game. But, as a pro­fes­sion­al, I with held and gave it a score based on its mer­its regard­less, though one thing I praised so high­ly was the sound­track. The sound­track is a gem of its own and should be heard by all. Dar­ren Korb, the games com­pos­er, did a fan­tas­tic job of cre­at­ing some­thing unique, some­thing that can’t be described in words. So sit back and enjoyRead more…

Gaming in Stereo: Pink Puffball Tuesday!

    [display_podcast]   Today on Gam­ing in Stereo is Kir­by day. The cute, cud­dly, and fierce char­ac­ter has won hearts since the days of the Game Boy and now has a very styl­ish remix album cour­tesy of those great folks over at Over­Clocked Remix. This song and album, Kirby’s Adven­ture: Rise of the Star – The Kirby’s Adven­ture Remix Col­lab­o­ra­tion, is quite a bit dif­fer­ent than the music I nor­mal­ly fea­ture; it for­goes a lot of the tech­no and heavy elec­tron­ic feel and cre­ates some beau­ti­ful sounds that, just like that Nin­ten­do charm will put a big smile on your face. Today’s song Star­bound – Theme of Dream War­rior done by chthon­ic was the first song I heard from this album and fell instant­ly in love with. The march­ing drums through­out the entire piece the 8‑bit sound check whileRead more…

Gaming in Stereo: Mass Effect Monday

  [display_podcast]   Hope every­one had a good week­end as we get back into the week and a week full of great gam­ing music. We are going to start Mon­day off with a remix from one of my favorite games of this gen­er­a­tion and per­haps one of my favorite fran­chis­es of all time, Mass Effect 2. The Mass Effect series has had a fan­tas­tic score done by a very tal­ent­ed group head­ed by Jack Wall. The futur­is­tic syn­the­sized music is very fit­ting of the set­ting but yet can bring the dynam­ics when ten­sion is high and the fate of the galaxy is at stake. Today’s track is Mass Effect 2 Sounds of the Galaxy and was remixed by Mat­tias Häg­gström Gerdt, who I fea­tured last Fri­day with his track Hey, Lis­ten. This remix paints a beau­ti­ful pic­ture of the galaxyRead more…

Gaming in Stereo: Zelda Dubstep Friday

 [display_podcast] As we end the first full week of Gam­ing in Stereo We will head back to an album I touched on a lit­tle while back. Off of the 25yearledgend: A Leg­end of Zel­da Indie Game Com­pos­er Trib­ute, today’s track is Hey Lis­ten (Oca­ri­na of Time/Legend of Zel­da) by Mat­tias Hag­gstrom Gerdt. It starts out slow and melod­ic lead­ing up to the dub­step tran­si­tion then famil­iar tunes syn­the­size the finale. It’s real­ly a somber tune, it’s not Skrillex, it real­ly an inter­est­ing mix and one of my favorites off this album. I real­ly hope any­one that checked out this week’s arti­cles enjoyed them and I will be back next week with 5 new songs and not from any of the albums you saw this week. Have a great week­end and enjoy!

Gaming in Stereo: Master Chief Thursday

  [display_podcast]     Two things always come to mind when you men­tion the Halo series, Mas­ter Chief and the incred­i­ble sound­track. Today’s track comes from the Halo 3 Orig­i­nal Sound­track, one of my favorites. The sound­track was com­posed by Mar­tin O’Donnell and Michael Sal­va­tori and is their best one yet. It has beau­ti­ful piano pieces, sweep­ing orches­tras, every­thing on a much grander scale than any pre­vi­ous Halo sound­track. I always turned the vol­ume all the way to 11 dur­ing the whole game just to hear how beau­ti­ful­ly craft­ed the music was. This piece, The Covenant Three Gates/Ascent/Leonidas took place on the Ark as the UNSC and the Elites pre­pared a final assault. Dur­ing this game­play sequence you touched down in the heat of a bat­tle, made scrap of sev­er­al Covenant forces ‚shut off the gate Mas­ter Chief was respon­si­bleRead more…

Gaming in Stereo: Turtle Soup Wednesday

[display_podcast] Not too long ago, Over­Clocked Remix put togeth­er an album based around some of the great­est vil­lains in gam­ing and prop­er­ly titled it BadAss: Boss Themes. Today’s track is off said album and not only com­mem­o­rates one of gam­ings great­est vil­lains but one of the great­est of the 80’s as well, The Shred­der. Teenage Mutant Nin­ja Tur­tles is still one of my favorite fran­chis­es of all time, being a child of the 80’s I was exposed to some of the great­est ani­ma­tion tal­ent that hit that mov­ing pic­ture box. This remix Shred­der (Teenage Mutant Nin­ja Tur­tles IV) by Six­to Sounds is an awe­some take on the Tur­tles in Time boss theme. On top of that, in the intro there is dia­log from the 1990 live action film! Fill your Wednes­day with nos­tal­gia and get ready to face The Shred­der!Read more…

Gaming in Stereo: Sonic Tuesday

[display_podcast] Today we are going fall back into the ear­ly 90’s with the title track from Over­Clocked Remix­es Son­ic the Hedge­hog: The Sound of Speed. The Sound of Speed by OA and Scared­sim is a trip back to the Green Hill Zone days and when Son­ic was more focused on speed than inter­species romances. The Gen­e­sis had some of the best if not the best Son­ic games and a lot of icon­ic tunes pump­ing out of the 16-bit con­sole. Enjoy this trip back to Sega’s hay day and visu­al­ize careen­ing over the vibrant green hills at the sound of speed.

Gaming in Stereo: Head Banger Monday

[display_podcast] Anoth­er week starts and it can be ago­niz­ing to get up and going. Here’s a great track from those great peo­ple over at Over­Clocked Remix to light a fire in your morn­ing cof­fee. Today’s track comes off the Mega Man 9: Back in Blue album. Ninth Fight by Cyril the Wolf, pumps up the title track from Mega Man 9 all the way to 11. Cre­at­ed by one of my favorite game design­ers, Kei­ji Ina­fu­ne, the blue bomber came back in a big, 8‑bit way with Mega Man 9; bat­tling Dr. Wily and his “Robot Mas­ters” in all of the side scrolling glo­ry. So stand up and take your Mon­day, and rock out with Mega Man!
