• Hello all! The forum staff have introduced a new rule set. We've reduced the number of rules, made trick language easier to understand, and have hopefully simplified the rules to make understanding them easier. Please have a read over the new forum rules here.
  • Hey guys! Have you heard? We now have popup
    Yes, Popups!
    messages for your forum posts. Learn more about it here!
  • Hey everyone, if you hadn't heard, information about Sword and Shield has been leaking. Outside of the designated threads in our Current Events section, please keep all unrevealed Pokemon, names, or any other information in spoiler tags. This policy will be in effect until January 3rd. This is an exciting time for Pokémon fans, enjoy yourselves!
  • Recently, some of our fellow Pokémon fan sites have received legal requests to take down leaked Sword and Shield images. We have not received one of these requests yet, but we are taking some preemptive measures to stay on the safe side. We ask that from now until the games release (November 15th) that you do not post any new leaked images anywhere on the forums.

Sounds a lot like an ending theme (or something that would play close to the end, at least). It's one of those songs where the vocals are pretty even if you don't know what they're saying (or maybe even partially because of that, haha). 8.5/10.

Here's another ending theme:

Oh! I didn't know a character's theme from the new 2hu came out already. This new girl is a chicken God too it seems, very interesting. For the track I give it a 8/10, pretty solid all around imo and surprisingly cool sounding for someone of her species.

8.5/10 Jeremy Soule with another amazing track as usual. Haven't gotten to this part in the game yet, can't wait till I get to it though so I can hear this while playing.

Here's a pretty obscure game that I haven't seen posted yet:

If that's being generated directly from the Saturn's sound chip, then that's quite impressive (it sounds a bit too good for it at times, though, so maybe not). Nonetheless, the song itself is very good; an exciting and dramatic main theme to start the game with. 8/10.

Here's something less dramatic, but (hopefully!) still pretty exciting:

8.5/10 very fun! I used to be obsessed with playing Sonic Spinball and Sonic R in this game.

Here is my top favorite track in P4 (which I'm still sad wasn't included in Smash Ultimate), I'll post the original and remix if you want to hear/rate both:

It's a bit more laid-back and "lounge-y" (for lack of a better word) than I would've initially expected from a Castlevania game, but that's certainly not a bad thing, and it definitely still sounds like Castlevania. Pretty nice mix of styles here! 8/10.

Here's something even more laid-back:

It's a lot more engaging than its rather laid-back groove would suggest, probably thanks to the quality of its instrumentation. And even today, I can kind of feel the novelty of getting that level of quality in video game music back in the 90s; that novelty makes it feel different from modern video game music in ways that I can't quite explain. In any case, 8/10.

This is definitely cheating a little bit here, but it is vaguely video game-related, so let's go for it anyway!


Or, to make it slightly more video game-related, here's a 16-bit-style arrangement of it as a bonus:

I give both a 9/10. I really love the trumpet used in the OVA but the track from the game itself is so good as well, it's hard to say which I liked more though, so I just decided to give both the same high score!
