Video Game Music Show – 14/01/2008

The first one of 2008, and it packs in a variety of tunes. Not many remixes or covers, however.

There is a spin of music from a series – Age of Empires and Timesplitters, to listen out for. Some songs also didn’t play due to not having the codecs on the PC I was running it off, so I’ll sort that and play them next time.

Unique ditties from Katamari Damacy and LocoRoco are also neat šŸ™‚

There are also 2 notable voiced tracks; “A Pirate I Was Meant To Be” and “The Friendly Demon Song”, in the Monkey Island 3 and Sam and Max games respectively, and are quite funny šŸ™‚

This is the playlist of the show for those who are interested is as follows (mind the spoiler for “Guess the Game” however šŸ˜‰ ). It might not be 100% accurate, I am sure I played “Guess the song” 3 times, not 2…
