Day 28: Music that makes you nostalgic
From MegaRace (DOS, 1993)

My first CD-ROM game. It came with our Windows 3.11 computer. MegaRace isn’t very good, but it gave us Lance Boyle and some early 90s CG videos that we get to drive on.

Revo – Wicked Flight

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. Edit 2: I had to replace the YouTube video again.

Rob Hubbard – Monty on the Run

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

30-Day Video Game Music Challenge (Super Hard Mode)
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.
