God-tier video game soundtracks nobody knows about?
not sure how widely known this soundtrack is, but it definitely should be well known
Tower of Heaven
How many people know the arcade version of Battletoads had a completely different soundtrack by David Wise?
The soundtrack is honestly the best part. Every character has their own song, and they're all completely different from each other.
a couple of days ago I saw somebody put, along with various other good titles, the OST for Custom Robo Arena for Gamecube among his favourites, I have just started playing it, I'll see if that is really true.
Everyone thinks this game is the worst in the series because of the gameplay, but I thought the gameplay was better than the others. It was easier to play rhythmically with a touchscreen than with buttons.
Does anybody know the vidya song that plays at 1:48 in The Best Gamers' review of Fez? It sounds like Tim Follin but I can't think of what game it is.
In return, more god tier Tim Follin
That man was god of SNES music
Can you believe this was almost lost forever?
(50hz is correct)
"I always regretting not writing more on the Mega Drive – the music driver was written by a colleague and friend I’ve known for years and we created what was probably the best and most flexible music driver I’d ever used, but unfortunately I only got to use it once, and even then on an unreleased game!" -Tim Follin
Pokemon, but not any fucking Pokemon game
The number one Pokemon game with the BEST GOTY soundtrack
The Pokemon typing game soundtrack
The music always changes based on what you're doing (Standing still, Moving around, or Fighting).
There's a reverb/echo effect that's completely missing, it affects dozens of games and there's several open bugs on mametesters.
>All of the GX games should be marked GAME_IMPERFECT_SOUND as the TMS57002 has not been hooked up to process the output of the 054539s.
>To be honest, every game using the 054539 should be marked as GAME_IMPERFECT_SOUND as the emulation is somewhat flawed (imperfect DPCM decoding, gain levels and reverb to name a few)
Hard to decide between David Wise and the Follin brothers, they both made so much great music. You know Wise and Geoff Follin both worked on ports of Solar Jetman? Only the NES one got released, though.
Desktop Dungeons OST. Composed by Danny Baranowsky AND Grant Kirkhope. Believe me, it's awesome.
Also, if you have five minutes to kill now and then, get the game.
That's one of the most adorable album covers I've ever seen.
Say what you will about Sword & Sworcery, the soundtrack was the tits. Makes sense considering it was basically supposed to be a pseudo-interactive album thing to show off the music, like the vidya version of a prog album.
David Wise's NES stuff doesn't get enough recognition. I didn't even know he did Wizards & Warriors until I read it on VGMPF.
I came here to preach the Tim Follin
Best soundtrack that rivals chiptunes of today overshadowed by being in the shittiest of games.
Once you get the hang of it, yes. The arm feels INCREDIBLY satisfying. The thing is, it takes some time to really get the feel of it. The multiplayer was the best way to show it off, but it's beyond dead, since nobody owns the game. G
Aside from Tim's early ZX spectrum stuff, have the Follin brothers ever done a soundtrack without at least one great song?
It's a damn shame that people take one look at this game, call it "edgy" or "tryhard" and ignore a really fucking good beat'em up
