Pokemon 3rd Generation’s “Elite 4 Battle” Alto Saxophone perf. by Sab Irene

Here’s something that I never thought I would hear. A saxophone cover of an Elite Four Battle. Specifically the one from Pokemon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald. It loses a little of it’s edge, but it still pretty exciting to listen to.   This song was performed by Sab Irene. If you liked this then I …

Kingdom Hearts Medley by the Videri String Quartet

Kingdom Hearts is a series that has some of the best music in games. Not all of them are winners, but how can you resist songs like Dearly Beloved and Hikurai. There’s this overall theme of hope in the series, which makes it strange that a goofy mash-up between Disney and Final Fantasy resulted in …

Super Smash Bros. Menu Medley (Melee/Brawl/Wii U) by The String Player Gamer

  Super Smash Bros. for 3DS comes out soon for us in the US and I can hardly wait. In anticipation, my girlfriend and I a few weeks ago had a weekend of Smash where we played through all of the games. That was a nostalgic trip. I kind of wish we waited a little …

Uncharted’s “Nate’s Theme” perf. by Ben Morfitt

  Uncharted is another game where despite having some really awesome music, I rarely find people covering it. Probably because it would take a one man orchestra such as SquidPhysics, AKA Ben Morfitt to pull it off.

Final Fantasy VII’s “Jenova” Electric Guitar Cover perf. by Epic Game Music

  I may not be a big Final Fantasy VII fan, but even I can appreciate just how good the music sometimes is. Especially when Epic Game Music is behind the guitar.

“Spinnin’ Round That Base” – A Parody of “All About That Bass” by Nathan Smith

  This is silly. A good silly, but silly nonetheless.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution’s “Icarus” perf. by Songs of Adventure

  Well it’s not too often that I get to hear a Deus Ex: Human Revolution cover. This was actually pretty amazing managing to perfectly recreate the track from the game but also moving it away from just being ambient and making it more present.   This song was performed by Caitlin and Vaughan who …

The First Trailer for Rakuen, Plus Soundtrack Preview

  One of the musicians I follow on YouTube, Laura Shigihara, is also a game designer (I didn’t know that before) and has been working on this game project here for a while now. As well as doing the audio, programming, and pixel art). I don’t know much about what the core gameplay is going …

SimCity 2000’s “Serious Sims” EWI Cover by Peter Anthony Smith (With Trivia!)

  Music and trivia all in one? What a great combination! SimCity I feel is a not a game that gets too many of its songs covered, so it’s a good thing that Peter Anthony Smith and his trusty EWI is here to provide a pretty faithful sounding recreation.

Ace Attorney’s “Cornered” Electric Guitar Cover perf. by James Ronald

  So personally I think this is the most iconic song in the Ace Attorney games and James Ronald has found a way to make it much more epic.

The Rise and Fall of Mario and the Brick Breakers – A Behind the Music Style Parody of Mario and Friends

  I don’t think I ever would have imagined a Behind the Music type video featuring the Mario characters as a rock band would have ever been a thing. And here it is. It’s surprisingly really good too, I wasn’t expecting to sit down and watch it all the way but I did. I love …

Pokemon X/Y’s “Lumiose City” Alto and Soprano Saxaphone Cover perf. by Sab Irene

  Listening to this saxaphone cover of Lumiose City from Pokemon X/Y by Sab Irene it makes me yearn to here some small band covers of Pokemon music live.   You can fine more of Sab’s music over on her Soundcloud.

Final Fantasy VII’s “One-Winged Angel” A Capella perf. by Smooth McGroove

  Smooth McGroove returns with one of his most impressive A Capella performances yet. One-Winged Angel from Final Fantasy VII is probably the most famous final boss theme in gaming history and for good reason. As someone who is not that big of a Final Fantasy fan (especially VII) even I love this theme.   …

Pokemon Ruby/Sapphire “Littleroot Town” Cover perf. by Insaneintherainmusic

  Another track from Insaneintherainmusic, this time a cover of Littleroot Town, the starting town in Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire. Seems pretty fitting since we’re not too far away from the release of their remakes.   This track is part of a 10 song album called Back to Your Littleroots which contains more 3rd Generation …
