My VG Music Picks #54 – Blue Bird Lamentation (Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward)

Do any of you have a piece of music that when you listen to it, you end up feeling sad regardless of your current mood? For me, Blue Bird Lamentation from the second Zero Escape title is that piece. Seriously, I get melancholy whenever I hear it. Hell, sometimes I put it on just to make myself sad. Continue reading

My VG Music Picks #53 – Battle! Ultra Beast (Pokémon Sun & Moon)

WARNING: The following article contains spoilers for Pokémon Sun & Moon

I instantly fell in love with the Ultra Beasts when they were first announced for Pokémon Sun & Moon. They were so alien in design, so unnatural looking and a little bit scary to boot. And on top of that, they have an amazing theme to go along with their appearances. Continue reading

My VG Music Picks #52 – DISSIDIA 012 [duodecim] FINAL FANTASY [FINAL TRAILER] (Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy)

OK, can I quickly start off by saying that it took me ages to find this track’s official name because, Christ, there are SO many variations of this theme. Also, why is it written in all caps; it just looks obnoxious. ALSO also, if you’re wondering whether this can actually count as a VG Music Pick since it’s trailer music and not in the actual game, well, it is included on the game’s official soundtrack. Besides, my site, my rules. Continue reading

My VG Music Picks #50 – Battle! Ghetsis (Pokémon Black & White/Pokémon Black 2 & White 2)

WARNING: The following article contains spoilers for the following:

Pokémon Black & White
Pokémon Black 2 & White 2

Well, this is a first – two VG Music Picks in one! Why is that? Well, since this is technically the 50th one of these I’ve done, I figured I’d do something a little special. Plus, I can’t really write about one of these music tracks without mentioning the other. So, let’s quickly look at the two themes belonging to the main villain of the 5th Generation of Pokémon games. Continue reading

My VG Music Picks #49 – Footsteps of Time (Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth)

WARNING: The following article contains spoilers for Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth

One of the many reasons why I struggled playing Persona Q was because of the labyrinths. Exploring them eventually became such a drag, even the music gradually became monotonous to listen to, even if they were suitably atmospheric. That’s why I was very pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed the music for the final labyrinth. Continue reading

My VG Music Picks #47 – Philistine (No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle)

WARNING: The following article contains spoilers for No More Heroes 2: Desperate Struggle

Out of all of the assassins you fight in No More Heroes 2, Margaret Moonlight is probably not only my favourite of the bunch, but arguably one of the most memorable. Not because of her backstory or her personality; in fact, we barely learn anything about her from her very brief dialogue with Travis. It’s all because of this song that plays during her boss fight. Continue reading

My VG Music Picks #45 – Calamari Inkantation (Splatoon)

WARNING: The following article contains spoilers for Splatoon

While I was never able to get into Splatoon‘s multiplayer (you know, the main draw of the game) as much as I would’ve liked, I don’t regret getting it, if only to help support a new IP with a tonne of potential. That, and the single-player was actually pretty good, with the final boss fight being the highlight. I didn’t know what to expect, but it certainly wasn’t an evil octopus DJ. Continue reading
