Final Fantasy Legend 2 - Boss Theme

Click for Spoiler:



I couldn't do Final Fantasy Legend's boss theme without following it up with the boss music from its sequel! I love this song, it's my favorite track in the Final Fantasy Legend series. Much like its prequel, this game was really tough. Especially the bosses. I looked forward to every single boss battle though, they were epic and the theme fit its battles perfectly. You can feel your heroes' struggle to overcome as it plays. When listening to it now two decades later I recall the challenging battles against bosses like Apollo, Venus, Magnate, Ashura, and last but not least ODIN who was notorious for making people give up on this game forever. The few who were able to make it past Odin into the final world where Apollo was waiting, they all know what overcoming a challenge in a game is truly like. This song has aged a little better than the one from its prequel yet I admit it is outdated compared to today's boss battles. 24 years ago though, this was as good as it got for a handheld game boss battle. It was never topped during the Game Boy era.

So I'm currently replaying Earthbound Beginnings, and due to a lot of the music from that game having been used in the much more well known sequel I have been feeling nostalgic to some of the music from the SNES title lately. One of which is the song I'll share in this post.


Earthbound - Battle Against A Machine

Click for Spoiler:


This is one of the best battle themes in the series and it plays during the battles against the series most famous enemies in this game, the Starmen. Disregarding Starman Junior who has the Otherworldly Foe theme in his fight. It's a great fit for fights against all of the aliens and robots that you face each time it plays. Catchy, intimidating, and very fun to listen to. Tons of memories of battles against various Starmen and robots come back when it plays. Ghost of Starman and Final Starman in particular, nothing in that game was more frightening to me than one of these two enemy types casting PSI Starstorm Omega on you.

Whoa boy, we sure like console games here at Wrestlezone!

I've only seen a few DOS games in this thread. Do you remember DOS?

There's an old DOS game called "Apocalypse Abyss" that possessed one of the most amazing soundtracks I've ever heard for a video game. Every background track within this relatively unknown game is the standard of amazing.



Then there was another obscure DOS adventure called "Mystic Towers" featuring Baron Baldric. Baron Baldric is an old man who farts a lot and occasionally uses magic to vanquish evil. For some odd reason the developers produced a theme for the intro that makes it sound like a gratuitous anime shoot-em-up game. Have a listen:

So with having gone back through FF6 for my walkthrough topic, thought I'd share a bit of trivia that most of you might not know about. It deals with the song that plays in Jidoor in the World Of Ruin, shown below in the form most are familiar with.


Final Fantasy 6 - The Magic House

Click for Spoiler:


Great song, right? It fits well for a town full of rich people from the NPC's talking about the Opera House, to the Auction building, to the rich guy Owzer's mansion with all its paintings, and the quest that takes place in the basement of Owzer's house. I wish it played in Jidoor in the World of Balance as well. Ok. So here's the trivia. This song.... was NOT originally planned for Final Fantasy 6! Click the spoiler tag below for the REAL origin of this song! You won't believe it until you listen to the real track for yourself.

Click for Spoiler:
Final Fantasy 2 - Unreleased Dungeon Track 3



Crazy, huh? It never made the cut but it would have originally been in the game many (including myself) rank as the worst title in the series. It does not state where the track would have played.... My guess would be in the castle labyrinth monster lairs such as Kashuon, Phin, or The Arena since you already have the typical "cave" theme and the "Imperial Base" type of monster lairs' themes. If it would have been in a town I'd suggest Mysidia but since it was developed as a Dungeon Track I have to go with the castle labyrinths as a theme that would have played there. That makes the most sense.


I only just recently found this out and it takes A LOT to surprise me when it comes to the older Final Fantasy titles at this point, but this genuinely shocked me when I found out.

Super Contra (or simply Super C) was a game on the Nintendo Entertainment System, whose music I really loved and enjoyed listening to. It matched perfectly with the fast-paced and non-stop action of the game and gave a strong adrenaline rush.
The game was developed in the late 80's, the early part of the later half of the Nintendo era. The music was composed by Hidenori Maezawa, the same person behind the original Contra's music as well. I don't know whether he came up with the tunes himself or imported the Arcade ones, but he did a remarkable job fitting 8 stage tunes, a game ending tune, as well as some other tunes in the very limited memory of the NES.
I particularly liked the track "Creature from outer space," which was the tune for the Babalu destructoid mechanism and the earthquake part of Stage 3. "Hotter than hell" from the top-down Stage 6 was also awesome, and "Thunder Landing" from Stage 1 was intense and immediately put you in the mood for some action.
Here is a link from which you can download the said tracks, as well as other old school video game music:

Super Star Wars (SNES): The Empire Strikes Back

Well, nothing is truly original in the SNES Super Star Wars games, because for the most part, everything is just rehashes from scores and tracks used in the movies. Still, the music used in the SNES Super Star Wars games is a perfect fit for the cut scenes and each stage. This track is one of my favorites. It plays on the options menu/title screen, when you start up the game, and sometimes I just sit back and watch the auto demo, if I want to listen to more.



Click for Spoiler:


Here's another one of my favorites, but you'll only hear it in certain parts during the Cloud City stages.



Out of all the SNES Star Wars games (luckily my SNES still works, so I can play them if I feel like it every now and then), The Empire Strikes Back is my pick for the best game, with Return Of The Jedi as a close second. I started playing all three games, when I was still kid, and the games are a good nostalgia kick for fans of the films.

For me, the final lightsaber duel between Vader and Luke gives The Empire Strikes Back the edge over the other SNES games. It's challenging (took me a while to get the hang of it as a kid), and they did a good job of mirroring the events in the movie step by step.

The lightsaber duel between Luke and Vader in Return Of The Jedi is fun, but it's way too easy (you can set the difficulty level to Jedi, but you won't notice a big difference). Although, to be fair, I guess you could say a lot of that has to do with Luke being a stronger character, and he has a wider variety of special attacks and power ups to choose from. With all that said, fighting The Emperor and escaping the exploding Death Star is still a pain the ass.

Sometimes an obscure game comes out for a system that can only afford the potential soundtrack a series of "bleeps" and "bloops" as musical notes. A guy named Jonathan Dunn had a knack for turning annoying sounds into amazing pieces of music, and he was tasked with making the theme for a game based on the Robocop franchise for the original Gameboy.



The soundtrack captured the drama of being a cop on the dirty streets of Detroit, in a tone that better represents what was considered robotic back in the early 90's. The wailing in the background seems to represent a street musician's saxophone, and occasionally a guitarist playing a solo.

Biggest video game songs that have never left my head.....


From the best soundtrack ever put together for a video game, every one of them are catchy and gel with the character/scene...genius really....this one always pops back in my brain....



This next one is pretty obvious choice for just about everyone who played it...





A piano theme that's way too catchy to not remember always.....



The Yoshi version is also good, although the drums kind of overshadows it.

This one is actually a very strange one to have stuck in my head...but for unknown reasons, i'll never forget it....



This exact part of the 25th Anniversary Legend of Zelda Orchestra CD is epic and always thought would be an excellent FACE music for Cesaro.....



SORRY: I couldn't cut it off where I wanted to ---it's at the 34:16 part...it's amazing.

And finally, an epic, epic tune for such an old system, listen closely and think...this is an 8 bit effing game...they managed to make this music in the game....it's pretty awesome...

There was once a game called Warriors Orochi 3, which was yet another shameless mash-up of Koei's intellectual property as a means of presenting a fun "what if?" scenario surrounding fictionalized dynasty of the Han in China and of Nobunaga Oda's conquering of Japan meeting up in a fun Flintstones meet the Jetsons scenario. There's also random guest stars like
Click for Spoiler:
Ryu Hayabusa and Sophitia.


Though an encounter like this would likely result in a series of awkward head-scratching, all the zany goofiness of this idea wares off when this music hits:



Which helped accentuate this scene:



That one scene was difficult as FUCK to find by the way, as there are about a billion videos of this game out there saturating the internet. You have to be DAMN specific about your search to find that one.

A few more obscure DOS titles for the road.

Escape from Delirium was one of those hidden gems that delivered more as a piece of art than it did as a gameplay experience. The story was blah, but the music and visuals were breathtaking. Few examples of the game's music are available online, but the game itself can be found on abandonware sites and played through the dosbox emulator. Here's the music that plays when you enter a house in a South American village:



Keeping with the theme of beautifully disturbing games, there was an obscure game released in the late 90's that paid strong tribute to the burgeoning neo-noir cyberpunk themes of that era. The game was called Dreamweb, and listening to its soundtrack is like being higher than Tommy Chong at Woodstock. Have a listen to one of its many examples:
