Day 27: Music from a handheld game
From Bravely Default (3DS, 2012)

JDetan keeps telling me about Bravely Default’s fantasy rock soundtrack. He also says I should never trust a fairy, whatever that means. If a portable RPG rocks this hard throughout, I’ve got to play it.

Edit: Yikes! The first YouTube video I had here was taken down today! Here’s a different upload. I use official YouTube Music uploads where possible, but none exist for Bravely Default’s soundtrack.

Day 26: Music you like from a game you haven’t played
From Monty on the Run (C64, 1985)

I grew up in an Apple II house, so I’ve barely touched the Commodore 64. I’ve played Space Taxi a couple times, but that’s it. Is THEC64 worth picking up?

Day 25: Music that gets you pumped
From Arcaea (iOS/Android, 2017)

Find something more hype…if you can… Fast songs in music games overclock my brain like nothing else, even if I hear them outside the game.

Anamanaguchi – Another Winter

Day 24: Music you constantly have stuck in your head
From Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game (PS3, August 10, 2010)

Happy 10th anniversary! We want to buy this precious little beat-’em-up, but it’s been delisted since 2014. This Anamanaguchi soundtrack is all we have left of it.

Update: Scott Pilgrim collected a 1up and is getting another digital release in 2020. I hope we get a physical release too. I don’t want to lose this again.

Junko Shiratsu and Mariko Nanba – Door Into Summer

Day 23: Underrated music
From Knuckles’ Chaotix (32X, 1995)

Chaotix nicely uses the extra sound channels that went unused in most 32X games. I think I ought to give Chaotix a chance.
