Video Game Music

without comments

If you have ever been chez nous, you’ve probably noticed that I’m really into video game music. In particular, the OverClocked Remix project: a gathering of musicians worldwide dedicated to making video game remixes.

OC Remix isn’t new–the community has been releasing content for years now. Did I mention all of this is free? Check out the compilations and albums they’ve got for download (I can get over 1MB/sec downstream via the torrents on their page). Most releases come as MP3s and fully lossless FLAC or WAV for ear-bursting glories.

SSF2THDR If you’ve played Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix, the soundtrack was created by OC Remix artists (I bought this game for XBox360 Live Arcade and came to the sad realisation that my aged reflexes can no longer pull of Hadoukens with the best of ’em…).

Here are a few albums and tracks which I have particularly enjoyed in recent years:
