    DuckTales Remastered OST Coming Soon

    Did you enjoy Jake Kaufman's remixed tunes for last year's DuckTales Remastered? You're in luck then, as Capcom has announced that the original soundtrack will be released on Amazon's MP3 store on April 29th! The OST includes some 47 tracks, including the original NES tunes (as well as Kaufman's NES rendition of Mount Vesuvius) and runs 90 minutes long. Unfortunately there's no word on pricing just yet, but keep your eyes peeled on Amazon when it officially releases. You can find the full tracklist for the OST in the spoiler below. Source: Capcom-Unity Will you be buying the DuckTales Remastered OST?
  2. Tis the season of giving! While we saw that the game industry tends to be a bit lethargic on the releases during December, out generous musicians are anything but. This month brings us many musical gifts, with enough albums to placate a variety of musical tastes. So, what are you waiting for? Scroll down and get to clicking on these great, free albums! Strider - Fall of the Grandmaster Hyde209 is giving us not one, but two albums this month. This first one, you may have guessed, remixes the soundtrack from Strider. This 25-track album is done in a style that resembles music (the actual music scene, not video game music) from the time of the game's release, giving the tracks a very rock-like feel. If you're a fan of Strider, this album should be a no-brainer. Sample Tracks: , Download here Best of Hyde209 Vol. 3 The second of Hyde209's offerings this month is a compilation of remixes from various games. Like the previous album, this Best Of album is very much rock-based, so if you're looking for some rock covers from a plethora of games, give this album a download. Sample Tracks: Download here Mega Man XXV - The First and 1/2 Shiryu is also giving us multiple albums this month, though I didn't have the foresight to lump them together like I did the others. Anyhow, this album continues his tribute to the Mega Man series by remixing tracks from the Mega Man Game Boy title. While that game did essentially have Robot Masters from the first and second games, and by extension the same themes, it's a good reason to remix those tracks again. Sample Tracks: Download here Mega Man Time Tangent - The Fight For History!! Mega Man Time Tangent has an interesting story. Back in 2008, this was meant to be a fan-game. Unfortunately, plans fell through, and the game was never made. However, a fair amount of the soundtrack was done, and the musicians decided to finish it up and put it up for free as their tribute to the Blue Bomber. That said, while these aren't remixes or anything, these tracks have a decidedly Mega Man feel, so if you want something that sounds like Mega Man that isn't quite Mega Man, Time Tangent has you covered. Sample Tracks: , Download here F-ZERO GO FAST! - Galactic G.P. Edition This second album by Shiryu might seem familiar; that's because a few months back he released four F-Zero albums in a single month, filling our speakers with glorious sounds of Big Blue and Mute City. To make it easier for those that missed out before, he put all of the albums together in one download. Also, some of the tracks are remastered and a previously unreleased track is included, so it's still worth a look even if you grabbed the separate volumes before! Sample Tracks: Download here Blast Processing XXV Shiryu's final offering this month is a tribute to the Sega Genesis. Cleverly enough, the album has 25 tracks from 25 Genesis games to celebrate the system's 25 anniversary. These remixes are a bit conservative, but it's nice to hear these iconic tracks getting some love. Sample Tracks: Download here Masterspace Original Soundtrack If you haven't heard of Masterspace, it's essentially Minecraft in space. You can build a number of things (some objects more sci-fi feeling than others), explore the worlds the universe creates, and so on. That said, the game's soundtrack matches the theme of the game well, with overall mellow, very space-y sounding tracks. Sample Tracks: You'll have to check the Bandcamp page! Download here Ultionius: A Soundtrack of Petty Revenge Ultionus is a game inspired by retro computer action games, a part all of the indie developers and their love of retro inspired seem to miss. The game's story is pretty silly, but the difficulty is not, and sure to give you a beatdown. This soundtrack is provided by Jake "Virt" Kaufman, and you can be sure that he masterfully captured the frantic nature of this action game in great chiptune form. Sample Tracks: Check the Bandcamp page! Download here An OverClocked Christmas V.7 It wouldn't be a December offering of free music if there wasn't some kind of holiday themed album in here, and OCRemix does not fail to deliver! These remixes are all of winter or snowy tracks in their respective games, and are remixed in a fashion to be... even more wintery and snowy feeling. A perfect soundtrack for when you want to be in the holiday spirit (...which I guess will be next year). Sample Tracks: Sugar Penguin Rag Download here The Briggs Effect III A new album to the Briggs Effect series is the first offering of Benjamin Briggs this month. The Briggs Effect is more or less him and other artists remix various tracks from various games, which is expected, and the tracks sound very nice. If you like The Briggs Effect III, you can download volumes I and II, as well. Sample Tracks: Check the Bandcamp page. Download here Mario Kart: Bonus Beach Briggs' second offering this month is a short tropical remix album of some beach themes from various Mario Kart games. It's nice to have some music to make you feel warm during the cold winter months, isn't it? Anyway, a warning to those that like skipping around tracks on their music player: This album is best listened to in order, as the tracks play into each other. Sample Tracks: Again, check out the Bandcamp page. Download here Monocle Man Original & Arrange Soundtrack Monocle Man is an OUYA exclusive title, in which you play a gentleman that must jump his way to the top of the level before sand topples him and his footholds. The game... actually doesn't look all that great, but the soundtrack's not too bad. The musician went all out for this release, too; it includes the original sountrack, an arranged soundtrack, as well as beta and unused tracks. That's a fair amount of music! Sample Tracks: Walking On Air Download here Match Girl Original Soundtrack Match Girl was an indie game created in 72 hours for the Ludum Dare 28, and it's free to check out here. It's a pretty neat puzzle platformer that relies on light and memorization, so it's worth checking out if you have a little free time. Contrary to the game's dark feeling, though, the soundtrack is full of energy and urges you to move forward... and dare I say, make a mistake? Sample Tracks: I think you know what to do by now. Download here That's all the tracks for this month... Sorry, no Oldie this month! There's plenty of new soundtracks for you to enjoy from artists this month anyway. Well, what are you waiting for, get to downloading! What's your favorite soundtrack this month? let me know in the comments below!
  3. Whew! The Thanksgiving holiday is over, and with that our wallets have been emptied out from the plethora of sales Black Friday has brought it. Thankfully, these music artists aren't charging for their gift of music this month; quite a relief, considering there might not be any money for us left to give! These eleven albums this month will sate your hunger for a variety of types of game music, and of course they're all available at the click of the mouse. Go ahead and indulge in these sweet musical desserts! halc's NOSTALGIA canon: a video game music tribute Yes, this is in fact a tribute to video game music! halc is an artist well known for his "9bit" style, in which chiptune tracks are recorded in an emulator as opposed to the original hardware, allowing for additional effects not normally possible, and applies it to many old video game tracks. This nine track album features both tunes you'll instantly recognize and even a few you may not, and the unusual style alone is worth the download. Sample Tracks: halc stopped posting on his YouTube page, so go to Bandcamp. Download here Music from Dreaming Sarah Dreaming Sarah is an adventure game about a girl in a deep coma that's trying to wake up. It's actually not out yet; it won't be released until 2014, but there's a demo up that can give you an idea of what to expect from the game. This soundtrack has released early, though, and offers sixteen mellow tracks that fit the ambiance of a dream world quite nicely. Sample Tracks: The Violet Sky, Slow Motion Download here Mega Man XXV: The First This month, Shiryu honors Mega Man's 25th anniversary with a remix of the tracks from the first NES game. Most of the twelve tracks have a distinctly 'techno' feel to them, though they stick pretty close to the original Mega Man tracks. It's also a relatively short album, which makes it ideal for rounding out playlists. This is also supposedly the first in a series of Mega Man EPs from Shiryu, so keep your eyes peeled for more! Sample Tracks: Download here Damned Damned is a multiplayer horror game in which you and three other people are stuck in a hotel, and you have to try to find your way out while being haunted and chased by a gruesome monster. If that description doesn't sum it up, the original soundtrack is full of eerie, tense tracks. If horror soundtracks interest you, then the Damned OST will not be damned on your playlist. Sample Tracks: , Download here Sonic CD: Temporal Duality OCRemix's offering this month is actually a hefty compilation of remixes from Sonic CD. This underplayed Sonic iteration was known for its wonderful soundtrack (and also having different tracks for the Japanese/European and American versions), and this album does the soundtrack justice. This remix album spans four discs and contains forty-three high-quality tracks, so it's certainly worth the download. Sample Tracks: , Download here Bokida: Original Soundtrack from the Game There are a lot of indie soundtracks this month! Bokida is a bit of an odd game: You can make blocks and essentially make them tumble, but you can also explore the world and see what the game has to offer in its minimalistic direction. This game's OST is a little short at seven tracks, but they fit in with the unusual world of Bokida perfectly. Sample Tracks: Check the bandcamp page. Download here Lumen OST Lumen is another game about a girl trying to wake up, but this is simply from her dreams. This platformer-puzzler involves using a camera to your advantage in this strange dream world. The OST allow sounds very dreamlike and mellow, and this eight track album might suddenly sneak its way into your playlist. Sample Tracks: Check Bandcamp for this one, too. Download here SNES Generation This is certainly a unique album. You'd think that SNES Generation is a tribute to the 16-bit console and its games, but instead Alex Roe remixes tracks from modern games with their 16-bit 'counterparts' to make an interesting and well working mash-up of old and new. It's not just a 16-bit remix of the modern tracks, either, because the original soundsets from the 16-bit games are used, not just their hardware. If it sounds odd, it is, but it's done surprisingly well. Make sure to give the sample tracks a listen! Sample Tracks: , Download here Mega Man Remade Shiryu wasn't the only one celebrating Mega Man's 25th birthday with a remix album, as RushJet1 brings us another remix of the original game's tracks. This particular remix is chiptune-based, meaning it expands a good deal on the original tracks while still keeping in the same spirit. This twenty-four track album is pretty much a must have for chiptune fans... and the sample tracks are even playthroughs of the game with the remixed music in the background! That's pretty neat. Sample Tracks: , Download here POKEP POKEP is an odd thing. This eight track album remixes various Pokemon tracks from various titles, but it was originally just one track by Grimecraft alone. POKEP has since turned into a mixtape of sorts with various artists, and more or less turned into an album of its own. Sample Tracks: , Download here Oldie But Still a Freebie! Time's End: Majora's Mask Remixed Thanks a bunch to Ciel for pointing out this album last month! In December of 2012, Theophany brought out Time's End, a remix album of The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask. Thing is, this is more than just a simple album filled with conservatively remixed tracks; every one of this album's ten tracks is lovingly and fantastically remixed to a melancholy and epic high. There should be no reason to not download this fantastic album. Sample Tracks: Download here That's all the free albums for this month! Who knows whether musicians will be even more generous in the holiday month of December, or if they'll be too busy with family to compose some new music... we shall see! Which album is your favorite? Any free album recommendations? Let me know in the comments below!
  4. September has finally ended! All in all it was a relatively slow month, as gamers rev up for October's incredible amount of releases and November's introduction of the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One to the market. It'll at least be one of the busiest holiday seasons in a while! Unfortunately, September was a bit slow on the side of free gaming albums as well... perhaps all the composers are getting ready for the busy holiday season, as well? Of course, quantity doesn't always equal quality, and this month's selection is certainly full of quality. Let's check out the six new (and one old) albums released this past month. Donkey Kong 64 Official Soundtrack A few months back, Grant Kirkhope released free verions of many of of his past Nintendo 64 soundtracks, including the Banjo-Kazooie games and Perfect Dark. However, one particular album was not released to the public from free during that wonderful month... until now. This month Kirkhope released the official soundtrack of Donkey Kong 64 for free. That's right, you can finally legally own the DK Rap (and seventeen other tracks) for free. What are you waiting for? Go and download it! Sample Tracks: , Download here Mega Man XA Mega Man XA is sort of hard to describe. It's a compilation of various remixes done in the style of the original Mega Man X. However, the artist makes it seem as though it's the soundtrack to a fan re-imagining of the original Mega Man X... which it still may very well be, but not being able to find any more information implies otherwise. Either way, the music is a bit of a 're-telling' of X's original game in musical terms, and some of the tracks chosen for remixing are very interesting to hear in this new style. Sample Tracks: For this album, you'll have to check its Bandcamp page. Download here Be Agressive! A Gunstar Heroes Tribute This month's OCRemix offering will be a treat to Treasure game fans. Be Aggressive! is a twenty-four remix tribute to Gunstar Heroes, Treasure's beloved Genesis title. This remix project covers pretty much every track from the game, and of course is up to the high quality the site is known for. Also the website for the album is fantastic looking! Sample Tracks: , Download here Divekick Soundtrack Just like the game itself, this free Divekick soundtrack is very minimal. It contains all the tracks from the game, but it has no formatting or album cover (that picture I used is from VGMdb). Oh, and make sure to scroll to the bottom of the download link to grab the tracks--it's all very understated, so you can miss it if you're not looking. Sample Tracks: You'll have to download this album. Download here Naya's Quest Soundtrack Naya's Quest is a free browser game by Terry Cavanagh, which you can check out here. It's actually a rather interesting title that everyone should give a try, but it's hard to explain in earnest without spoiling it. Anyway, the game's soundtrack is also naturally available for free, and the few tracks played throughout the title are ambient and somewhat lonely sounding, which fits the game very well. Sample Tracks: Check the bandcamp page for the tracks. Download here Famicom Memoria XXX Shiryu's offering to the free gaming album world this month is in celebration of the Famicom's 30th anniversary. As we all know, this console was a big step for the gaming industry, and had a bunch of iconic games, and these are represented in the Famicom Memoria XXX. You'll find remixes to Super Mario, Punch-Out!!, and other 8-bit classics here. Also, while this album is available on Bandcamp, you would have to pay for it, while the links on Shiryu's site are always free. Sample Tracks: Download here Oldie But Still a Freebie! Mighty Switch Force Official Soundtrack Many people interested in video game and chiptune music probably know Jake 'Virt' Kaufman by now. He's likely most well known for the various tracks he creates for WayForward's titles--the most recently of which being his remixed tracked for DuckTales Remastered. However, his older soundtracks are just as great... and his release of the Mighty Switch Force! soundtrack is certainly worth a listen. This album features all of the tracks from the 3DS game, and are as quirky and upbeat as the game itself is. Any fan of the artist or the game deserve to give this album a download! Sample Tracks: , Download here That ends this month's offerings of free gaming albums. Perhaps next month we'll get a deluge of free music with the flood of hit games coming out? What's your favorite album this month? Any that I missed? Let me know in the comments below!
  5. Now this is a shocker. Despite the fact that many people are returning to the routine of school and real life, having had their summers and vacations, it seemed that now musicians decided to break their dry spell of free gaming albums now. What caused this to happen? Maybe artists wanted to get their projects completed before the fall came? Maybe they were thinking, in a tiny part of their minds, that we desperately needed new music to help us survive the oncoming winter? ...Heck, I'm not one to complain. Let's get right to the good stuff: The free albums! If you're looking for even more free music, you can check out some of my past round-ups. Pokemon: The Eevee EP After finally finishing and releasing their massive Final Fantasy VI album, OCRemix decided to scale it down a bit for their next release. The Eevee EP focuses on, you guessed it, Eevee and all of its evolutions. The soundtrack takes nine tracks and remixes them in a style representative of of Eeveelution's type. The EP is only nine tracks, but is well worth the download. Sample Tracks: , Download here Anodyne Remix Album Anodyne is an indie title that looks a bit like a Zelda game, but carries the much deeper theme of exploring the sub-conscious. As such, the game is well-known for having a great and fitting soundtrack. Unfortunately... the OST is not free (it's $2.50 on Bandcamp), but this remix album is free for all to download. These remixes are not of low quality either--they may not be the original tracks, but they are very much worth the clicks and bandwidth! Sample Tracks: Download here Heaven Variant Emergency Soundtrack Heaven Variant was to be a pretty neat shump... unfortunately the game was cancelled. It's a shame, since it seemed like it was going well and had a great soundtrack. Well... we may not get the game, but at least the soundtrack is available for free! You can get the .AAC version of the soundtrack for free, but if you want .MP3s, you'll have to give at least fifty cents to the artist on the bandcamp page. Sample Tracks: (the official names are not on Youtube) Download here Mars: War Logs Original Soundtrack You may have heard of Mars: War Logs; Harrison Lee did review it, after all. Well now, you can download the indie sci-fi RPG soundtrack for free. This game features rather somber, more post-apocalyptic tracks as opposed to more typical upbeat sounds, so it may be a nice OST to round out your gaming music collection. Sample Tracks: , Download here Charlie Murder the Soundtrack Charlie Murder, riding on the current beat-'em-up fad, recently came out to downloadable platforms. One of the interesting things about this title was the soundtrack, actually--hardcore rocking tracks written by the game's (fictional) band, Charlie Murder. Being able to get the whole soundtrack for free as a pretty neat gesture from the developers. Download it and rock out! Sample Tracks: , Death By EverythingDownload here Remember Me Music Contest - Best Of Back in July, Capcom held a remix contest for Remember Me, the winner getting a bunch of cool stuff for their awesome remixed track. However, not only the musician won out in the end... we got some awesome music produced for the event, as well! Capcom compiled what they thought was the best of the large amount of submissions and distributed it for free. Sample Tracks: Give the download page a look! Download here Pause Ahead OST Side A Pause Ahead is an odd little game. Made by the same guy that make the hard-yet-excellent Tower of Heaven, Pause Ahead is another very difficult platformer with a very interesting twist. As such, the soundtrack holds a bit of adrenaline to it, and its 8-bit feel is very nice and nostalgic. Side A only contains five tracks, but... Sample Tracks: Check the Bandcamp page! Download here Pause Ahead OST Side B ...We got Side B of the game's tracks as well! Side B has the game's other five tracks. Considering the game's size, that's still a goo amount of tracks! Also, if you want, you can try Pause Ahead for free right here. Sample Tracks: Check the Bandcamp page! Download here Icarus Proudbottom Teaches Typing! Have you heard of Icarus Proudbottom Teaches Typing!? The game made a bit of a splash at the Something Awful GameDev Challenge VII, and with good reason... those instead of explaining it, it's just far better to give it a try! The soundtrack is... well, it isn't too great to be honest, but it's for a typing game, and it's free, so here we have it! Sample Tracks: Wouldn't it be better to experience these moving tracks in-game? Download here Icarus Proudbottom & The Curse of the Chocolate Fountain Fun fact: Icarus Proudbottom Teaches Typing! was not the first game in the Icarus Proudbottom series. First came... well, this game... that mainly involves the main character trying to stop his explosive (and momentum gaining) diarrhea. So yeah, it's a game. And this is the soundtrack to that game. Give it a download... if you dare. Sample Tracks: Check the Bandcamp page! Download here Knytt Underground The Knytt series is one of those series that the indie 'hipsters' know about--it's not quite mainstream, but somewhat popular nevertheless. Knytt Underground is the newest entry to that series, and its now free soundtrack is pretty massive. This album is a huge six 'discs' long, packed full of ambient tracks that are relatively chill in nature. Even if you don't plan on picking up the game, this OST's worth downloading. Sample Tracks: Amazing Sandwiches, Fire Resistance is Awkward for Obvious Reasons Download here Oldie But Still a Freebie! Ao Vivo Em Conserva Gameboys is a Brazilian band that, of course, plays remixed gaming tracks. In February 2012, they did a pretty big live performance... and this album is the result of that show. Since it was a live event, the sound may not have the same quality as some of the other albums listed, but the tracks themselves are solid, and feature some neat remixes of both popular tracks and some you may have forgotten about. Sample Tracks: It was a live event... give it a download! Download here Whew, that's quite a bit of music there! I have to wonder what next month will bring... maybe our gaming music playlists will grow as large and as full as this holiday season is planning to be for the rest of gaming? We'll have to see! What's your favorite album this month? Any albums I missed? Let me know in the comments below!

    Ibb & Obb OST Now Out On Bandcamp

    It's only been one week since Ibb & Obb's release on PSN, but Sparpweed has announced that the game's OST is now available for purchase on Bandcamp, courtesy of its composer, Kettel. Much of the music is electronic-based and very laid back, similar to a degree to Boards of Canada's music if you're familiar with them. It also has a hint of LittleBigPlanet influence here and there. In all, it comes highly recommended from both myself and Marcus, as a lot of it is quite catchy and upbeat. And of course, if you haven't seen it yet, remember to check out our review of Ibb & Obb, which we gave a very favorable score to; definitely worth checking out. You can buy the Ibb & Obb OST for $10 USD here. If you need any recommendations for any specific songs to listen to, check out tracks 1, 4, and 15 in particular.
  7. Yesterday Humble Bundle revealed an interesting new weekly sale which is unlike most of its other wares. Whereas previous weeks have focused on game developers, their latest sale is almost all about independent musicians instead. Of course, there is at least a tangential relation to gaming - and one game is available with the set. Jim Guthrie has composed a great deal of music over the years but gamers are likely aware of him for providing the soundtracks to Indie Game: The Movie and Sword & Sworcery EP. Fans of that game in particular should be pleased by two albums from the game being available in the sale. One is Sword & Sworcery LP while the other includes seven of the game's songs localized for Japan. There are eleven soundtracks in all which you can view here. If you pay over the average (currently $3.56) then that is where some more gaming-related goodies are deposited. The higher price nets you Sword & Sworcery EP (Windows/Mac/Linux/Android) and a Steam key. A download or Steam key is also provided for Indie Game: The Movie.
  8. I know, it's been rough lately. Last month had only seven gaming music albums to satisfy your thirst for free and great music; it just wasn't enough! It's almost as if the composers are getting tired! Unfortunately, this month isn't looking to be better... with seven more free albums, will it really be enough to last through July? Well, given the quality, it certainly will! This month features a wide variety of tracks that are bursting from the seams given their track count... heck, they don't sound half bad, either! Let's dive into the six new (and one old) albums that were released this June. Perfection. Original Soundtrack Perfection. is a simple mobile game that involves cutting shapes down into... well, another shape. It's a very relaxing and addicting puzzle game, and the soundtrack helps to reflect that. All of the tracks (minus the two bonus ones) are very soothing, so if you need something to chill out to, this album is for you. Download here Sample Tracks: Tiny Barbarian DX: The Serpent Lord OST The original Tiny Barbarian was a free indie game with a retro fell and a pretty steep difficulty curve. Now, a bit of time and a Kickstarter later, Tiny Barbarian DX has been released, an episodic sequel to the fun original. The Serpent Lord OST is an album of the tracks from the first episode of the new game, and as expected is fill of hard rocking chiptunes. Download here Sample Tracks: Mighty Switch Force 2 Official Soundtrack Those into the game music scene know the name Jake Kaufman, or at least the man by his username "virt." Very much a fan favorite, he has composed the soundtracks of many of WayForward's games... and Mighty Switch Force 2 was no exception. This soundtrack continues the original's tradition of quirky, high-energy tracks that meld perfectly with the game and with your playlist. (Editor's note: Seriously, this album is fantastic. Definitely give it a listen! - Jason C.) Download here Sample Tracks: , Sonic After the Sequel Original Soundtrack Many fans may still think that Sonic Team is going the wrong way with the blue hedgehog, but with a strong community of people that make quality Sonic fans games and ROM hacks, fans don't have to look too far for some new classic Sonic goodness. Sonic: After the Sequel is a fan game that takes place, you guessed it, after Sonic the Hedgehog 2, and attempts to explain some of the events that happened in Sonic the Hedgehog 3. The soundtrack, as you would expect, is composed of all new tracks with that classic Sonic feel in mind, so if you're looking for something that sounds like the old Sonic tunes but is completely new, then this is worth a download. Download here Sample Tracks: Fist Puncher Soundtrack Fist Puncher is another Kickstarter success... but it's not quite released yet. This old-school inspired brawler is still in its alpha state, but that doesn't stop its soundtrack from being complete and free to listen to! These twelve tracks fit the brawling game nicely, with tense tracks that will get the blood flowing. Download here Sample Tracks: You'll have to go to the download link! Banjo Kazooie Beta's This is... kind of a weird album. Kirk Granthope found some betas of some of the tracks he was writing for... and just decided to release them. Not even he knows what the tracks were for (at least the ones that aren't recognizable), or even why some are named the way they are. Regardless, they're all there to download and listen to. It's pretty interesting to see how Granthope's music develops, in the least. Download here Sample Tracks: You have to check the Bandcamp page! Oldie but Still a Freebie! Harmony of a Hunter: 101% Run 2011 was the Metroid series' 25th anniversary. Unfortunately, the series didn't give much love to the famous bounty hunter and her exploits... thankfully, fans did. Composers got together and created Harmony of a Hunter, filled with remixes of tracks from the Metroid series. About a year later, the 101% Run was released, a bit of an 'expansion' of the first, offering some new tracks on previously forgotten tracks. If you're a Metroid fan, this album is part of a perfect collection. Download here Sample Tracks: , That's all for June's free albums! There seem to be a few regulars missing (though understandable after Shiryu's massive release last month), but hopefully the summer will inspire more musicians to create some gaming music for us all to enjoy! Which album was your favorite? Any remixes or musicians you're hoping to see in July? Let me know in the comments below!
  9. Welcome to another round of awesome, and free gaming music! I know it's been a long time since your last video game album fix, but don't worry, you made it. It's time for the monthly overview of awesome gaming albums... that are completely and utterly free! Unfortunately, this month is a bit sparse on the releases... and as you'll see, the majority of it has a distinct theme in mind. But don't fret! It's all great... and free! You can also check out some of the earlier months' entries to see if you missed anything. ...So with that, let's dive in this month's audio offerings! Best of Hyde209 Vol. 2 Hyde209, as you might guess, is a username. It's also the username of an accomplished remixer. Hyde209 has been in the hobby of making gaming remixes for quite a while, if his YouTube page is anything to show for it. This album is a compilation of some of his best works, all nice and easy to download in one place. He has a variety of remixes in terms of style, so the tracks on there are bound to please everyone. You can check out Vol. 1 as well! Sample Tracks: , Download here Princess of Eternity EP Princess of Eternity EP is a small track, but one to excite Touhou fans. These four tracks are all a remix of the track Septette for a Dead Princess in The Embodiment of the Scarlet Devil. More specifically, it's two vocal remixes of the track, and then the tracks with only the instrumentals. It's not a large album by any means, but is still worth that click! Sample Tracks: You can check the download site for SoundCloud samples. Download here F-Zero Go Fast! Vol. 1 - Age of SNES And so it begins. Early in the month, Shiryu released this album. F-Zero Go Fast! Volume 1 takes a bunch of tracks from the SNES F-Zero game and gives them a fine and loving remix. F-Zero's tracks are pretty good on their own, but the remixes give them a new life... and the 'Volume 1' in the title should let you know that there's more to come. Sample Tracks: Download here F-Zero Go Fast! Volume 2 - Age of N64 Luckily, Shiryu wasn't going to make us wait a whole month for some more F-Zero remixes. The second volume in this F-Zero collection focuses on the N64 entry to the racing series. This volume is also done in a different style, as well... these twelve tracks are chiptunes. That's especially good considering the series itself reuses a lot of its music! Sample Tracks: Download here F-Zero Go Fast! Volume 3 - Age of GBA Yes, that's right... that's not all the F-Zero you'll get this month! As you can see, Volume 3 of this massive F-Zero project features the GBA entry into the Nintendo franchise. This one is the largest yet at fifteen tracks. They're done in the same style as Volume 1, but all these tracks are unique, so no need to worry about duplicates! Sample Tracks: Download here F-Zero Go Fast! Volume 4 - Age of GC Just before the end of the month, Shiryu finishes off this F-Zero project. The final Volume, Age of GC, features the final GameCube entry to the F-Zero series. This album is the smallest, and also the least focused--there are chiptunes and 'redux' mixes alike, as well as secondary remixes to a few of the more popular tracks. It's still a great album, though, and well worth the download to complete the collection! Sample Tracks: Download here Oldie but Still a Freebie! Mega Man 9: Back in Blue There wasn't an OCRemix album this month, which is a shame... but that gives us a chance to look back at some of their older works! Mega Man 9: Back in Blue is a tribute album to, you guessed it, Mega Man 9. These eighteen tracks spread across two discs are a fitting tribute to the ninth entry of the series, which is lauded for its fantastic soundtrack. Go ahead and give this release a download! Sample Tracks: , Download here That's it for May's offerings to the free gaming music cause. It's a bit more sparse than the past couple of months, but that doesn't mean that it's a bad month--quite the opposite! Enjoy your overload of F-Zero until next month! Which gaming album is your favorite? Any albums I missed, or single tracks you want to share? Let me know in the comments below!
  10. I know you've been counting the days until the end of the month. "I need my fix!", you proclaimed loudly at the Game Podunk homepage. "Where is it!? It's been a whole month already!" Well, worry no more. I've come to help you. It's hard waiting a whole month for your monthly music fix, but don't worry... you've made it. That's right, April is over, and that means twelve new albums (and one old) to download and get your music mojo on! April had two particular themes going on, actually: Love for Sonic and awesome mainstream composers giving their hit tracks out for free. Even so, though, it's a great month to be a gaming music fan! If you need even more gaming music, check out these posts for releases earlier in the year. Now grab your headphones and click away! Banjo Kazooie Complete Game Soundtrack Grant Kirkhope is a generous man. Over the past month, he has released three of his albums from Rare games into the wild, free for everyone to download. This is the first. The Banjo Kazooie soundtrack gives us 17 tracks of the iconic music. It may have been a while since you've played the game, but this album might give you the urge to give the N64 game another go! Download here Sample Tracks: , Banjo Tooie CD Soundtrack The second of Kirkhope's gifts to us this month is, unsurprisingly, the soundtrack to Banjo Tooie. Being Banjo-Kazooie's sequel, we can expect more of great sounds from the original in this 14 track compilation. It's almost as if Kirkhope wants us to delve into these classics again! Download here Sample Tracks: Perfect Dark Dual CD Soundtrack The final of Kirkhope's releases April comes to us on the final day... it's almost like a farewell to a month of fantastic music releases! These Perfect Dark tracks, while no longer on a CD, are sure to give fans another great Rare-flavored nostalgia trip. Download here Sample Tracks: , The Sonic Stadium Music Adventure 2012 Of all the Sonic album you're about the see, this one is the most massive. The year-long efforts of a entire community of Sega fans, The Sonic Stadium Music Adventure 2012 is a gigantic album that is essentially the group's love letter to the company. While the 157 tracks are mostly Sonic remixes, other Sega franchises are represented as well, such as Ristar and NiGHTS. If you're looking for only one album this month (why would you?), this is the best bang for your download. Download here Sample Tracks: , Sonic Classic 2: Original Soundtrack Before we get started, it's worth noting that Sonic Classic 2 isn't the name of the album: It's the name of a Sonic fan game. As you might expect from the name, Sonic Classic 2 is more in the vein of the classic Genesis games, and this 32 track album helps reflect that image. For those aching for some classic Sonic sounds that are, at the same time, new and unique, look no further than this album. Download here Sample Tracks: , Blue Skies, Green Hills Musicians sure have a love for Sonic this month, don't they? This 10 track tribute album takes tracks from Sonic games across many years, and the remixes are made by a variety of artists... heck, there's even a hip-hop track in there! If you're looking for some Sonic remixes that are a little more offbeat, give this a listen. Download here Sample Tracks: Second Adventure, Everything Was Green Biohazard EP Don't get too excited, Resident Evil fans; this isn't a remix of tracks from the survivor horror series... rather, it's (yet another) Sonic album! This four track album is a bit... weird, though. While the first two tracks are DjjD's original works, the second two are remixes of the Chemical Plant music from Sonic 2. Very short, but sweet. Download here Sample Tracks: Check the download page! Mayhem Triple Official Soundtrack Mayhem Triple is an odd game... apparently one about bunny invaders. I'm not quite sure what to think of the game itself... but the soundtrack is top notch. Mr. Podunkian (Editor's note: Hey, nice name!) said that he was inspired musically by another game of a similar vein: Earth Defense Force 2017. If that isn't making you frantically clicking the download link, I'm not sure what will. Download here Sample Tracks: The blog post has playable links to all the tracks; check the download link! The Adventures of Dash Advance Preview EP The Adventures of Dash isn't quite out yet, but Danny Baranowsky (well known for his work on the Super Meat Boy soundtrack) decided to share some of the music from this game ahead of time! The music seems to encompass a happy, cheerful game... and carries Baranowsky's awesome and unique signature. What a great way to build hype for the game! Download here Sample Tracks: Check the download link! Complete Composer Edition of Kameo: Elements of Power While Kirk Granthope shared three albums of his work this month, he wasn't the only mainstream artist to share his work for free this month. Ex-Rare composer Steve Burke also shared one of his works this month--the complete edition to the Xbox game Kameo: Elements of Power. Yet another generous gift from a more mainstream musician! Download here Sample Tracks: The file names are a little funky, so I had trouble finding the right matchups. Give it a download! Mystery Gift: An Original Pokemon Tribute This album isn't a remix or re-imagining of some of Pokemon's tracks; rather, it's a tribute to the series using original tracks they convey what the musician feels about the series at hand. Sounds a bit like musical art interpretation, right? Anyway, this eight track album certainly sounds like it came out out of a Pokemon game... any Pokemon fan should give it a download. Download here Sample Tracks: Another bandcamp album, another time to tell you to click the download link! Fire Emblem: War Memories Shiryu pumps out a gaming album almost every month... a very impressive feat seeing as he's only one man! This month he gives us a massive tribute to the Fire Emblem series. Shiryu covers tracks in both the newer and older games, and is a great listen for any Fire Emblem fan. It's also worth noting that this album's pretty big--spanning all the games, it round out at 30 tracks. That's a lot of listening potential! Download here Sample Tracks: Oldie But Still a Freebie The Legend of Zelda: The Essence of Lime This month's oldie as actually quite old, at least by internet standards; this Oracles of Ages remix album came out way back in June of 2010. This project had one goal in mind: Showing the world how awesome the Game Boy Color game's music was, and doing so with imaginings by various artists for many of Oracle of Ages' tracks. This shows in the 42 tracks that The Essence of Lime spans. Whether you played the original game or not, this is worth a listen just by the quality of the tracks alone. Download here Sample Tracks: That's all for April's musical offerings. Despite the general overload of Sonic, there's quite a bit of variety (and nostalgia!) hidden away in these albums. There's something for most fans to find here. Which albums are your favorite? Any singles you want to share? Let me know in the comments below!
  11. So, everyone loves music... and of course, everyone loves free music. And do you know what's even better than that? Free video game music! But where do you even start looking for the elusive free music? Many people would go to a torrent site and download them because you can find almost every album imaginable. When you get into the realm of piracy, though, you walk a fine line filled with legal and moral grey areas and viruses. But worry not, for there is a place you can go to find legitimate and free gaming music... and that place is right here! Every month, I'll be bringing you all the free gaming albums for you to download and enjoy. For this first installment, I'll be bringing you both January's and February's free albums right to your monitor. Ready to get some new music in that playlist? Get your mouse and headphones ready... for here comes the musical deluge! Apex 2013: Straight to the Top About once a month, OCRemix comes out with a gaming oriented album for gamers to have more gaming music goodness. Though they did not release an album in February, their first album of the year is in honor of Apex 2013. Apex is a yearly fighting game tournament where many get together and duke it out (and also play Pokemon for some reason). The album's eleven remixed tracks all come from games that were played during the tournament. Sample Tracks: , Download here Elite: Mostly Harmless Shiryu is quite the impressive musician; the rate he comes out with new music is downright scary. The best part is that it's all free, too! This is one of his one of his tribute albums, to the game Elite. If you haven't heard of it, don't feel bad (I hadn't either); it's a very old computer game, created in 1984 that practically pretty much created the space sim genre. It's nice seeing someone pay tribute to such a piece of gaming history. Sample Tracks: , Download here Moogle's Flute This remix album is a little special. A woman that goes by the game 'Lauren the Flute' has, you guessed it, created a cover album with her flute. Despite the name, the six-track album does have more than just Final Fantasy; there are Suikoden and Terranigma tracks as well. Check it out if you're interested in flute music! Sample Tracks: , Download here Kingdoms of Amalur Boss Pieces with Endings A year or so back, Grant Kirkhope released the Kingdoms of Amalur Original Soundtrack in both physical and digital forms. The complete soundtrack is not free... however, this little add-on soundtrack is free for all. Basically, this is a compilation of the boss tracks from the game; however, instead of the tracks fading out like on the original soundtrack, they have actual endings. Not a big difference, but it allows everyone to own a little of Amalur's great soundtrack. Sample Tracks: Check the Bandcamp link below. Download here Chrono Ark: Original Soundtrack Chrono Ark is a little hard to consider a game. Chrono Ark originally started as a fan game to continue Chrono Trigger's and Chrono Cross's story, but ultimately failed (and took most information about the game with it). However, Alex Roe has released the soundtrack to this never-to-be game, a whopping 100 track collection. It's a great listen too, with a great orchestral sound with remixes of the Chrono series as well has original tracks. Sample Tracks: , Download here White Materia: Final Fantasy VII Mashups White Materia is certainly a... different album. Then again, most mashups are. If you don't know, a mashup is basically when someone takes two songs and throws them together until they sound good. However, Mega Ran doesn't actually take the soundtrack of Final Fantasy VII and smash it together with other tracks; instead, he takes two popular tracks and mixes them together in a way so that they're tributes to the game's various themes and characters. An odd choice to be sure, but it makes for something very fresh. Sample Track: Download here Street Fighter X Mega Man X-tended Vol. 1 The sole free album released in February, A_Rival brings us the first in a series of Street Fighter X Mega Man extended tracks. While the offering is a meager four tracks, it consists of tracks not in the original soundtrack as well as a remix of Ryu's theme. A nice supplement to the original (also free) offering. Sample Track: Ryu's Theme (Super Square Remix) Download here That's it for this month... or rather, the past two months. I can only hope March will be more productive for the generous musicians that give their music for free than it was in February. See you again in April! Which albums were your favorites? Any albums I missed? Did you enjoy this piece? Let me know in the comments below!

    Free Video Game Albums?

    Marcus' post about the Double Dragon Neon soundtrack kind of wants me to ask... are there any other free video game soundtracks you'd recommend, original or remixed? I have some to share, of course, so I'll begin! NES JAMS is an awesome remix soundtrack by Shnabubula. A bunch of NES classics are remixed using chiptunes and the piano... it just sounds fantastic. Unfortunately there's no youtube videos up to sample the tracks easily, but the bandcamp site is easy to accommodate. While a short album with five tracks (one track's 17 minutes though ), Thunderous Crash is a nice little album. I'm especially fond of the FFV remix. Another bandcamp only one, so no youtube videos. I have plenty more, but I don't want to make such a long post! How about everyone else?
