Twilight Princess’s “Hyrule Fields” Marimba Cover perf. by Mart0zz

The Marimba is not an instrument I get to hear a lot of. Hearing Twilight Princess’s Hyrule Field like this kind of makes the whole song feel a bit more, I’m not sure, zany? Upbeat? It’s actually surprising similar to the normal version of it.

Zelda II’s “Temple/Palace Theme” A Capella perf. by Smooth McGroove

Growing up, I remember always hearing bad things about Zelda II. I was under the impression for a while that I thought the game was a mess and so actually surprised when the Temple song I heard in Super Smash Bros. Melee was from Zelda II because I thought it was really good. I was …

Animal Crossing’s “K.K. Bossa” Vocal Cover perf. by Sabrina Valenzuela

I really love Sabrina Valenzuela’s voice for covers like this but her vocal covers of other fans have introduced me to many more amazing artist. Take this song for instance, it’s a cover of MsNydroj20‘s cover, which was based on a fan sub of the Animal Crossing movie.

Banjo-Kazooie’s “Intro” perf. by SquidPhyiscs

This is quite the impressive Banjo-Kazooie cover. Usually in these types of things you don’t expect recreations of the voices as well but SquidPhyiscs went the extra mile.

Ni No Kuni’s “Main Theme” perf. by the Videri String Quartet

You can chalk Ni No Kuni as another game on my ever expanding list of games that I need to play someday, but at least now I can say I like the main theme. Thank you Videri String Quartet.

My Date With Captain Falcon (Feat. Markiplier & Nikasaur) by RandomEncounters

If Super Smash Bros. has taught me anything is that Captain Falcon is one weird dude. He actually kind of reminds me of Gaston in this video. Except with a mariachi band.

Donkey Kong Country’s “Jungle Groove” perf. by Music by Pedro

A good way to wind down after another work week.

“A Tomodachi Life” by Ryan Craddock

Well this is the most commercially sounding song I’ve ever heard, but I do think it’s catchy.

Pokemon Theme Song Acoustic Cover perf. by Nate Smith

Another cover of the 1st Pokemon theme song that just resonates with 90′s kids who loved the first generation of the games. I really like this version because it not only reminds me of the version used for the first Pokemon movie, but also because it reminds me of a version that I posted earlier …

Shovel Knight with Lyrics by Brentalfloss

Brentalfloss has such a way on convincing me to get games I previously had no interest in. I wonder, when someone asks him what a game is about does he just break out in song to describe it to them? I hope he does.

Minecraft’s “Sweden” A Capella perf. by Smooth McGroove

I think Minecraft has one of the most soothing soundtracks ever. How could it be made even more soothing? Throwing the A Capella styling of Smooth McGroove into the mix!

Super Mario 64′s “Wing Cap” Alto Saxophone Cover perf. by Music by Pedro

I absolutely loved this song from Super Mario 64. It was always one of those songs that just stayed with me long after I played the game, kind of like the main castle’s themes. Of course, hearing his cool saxophone cover with some improvisation was pretty neat as well.

Karmaflow in Concert – A Video Game Rock Opera

How does one go about creating a game musical. I remember pondering that before when looking at both Epic Mickey 2, which uses singing through cutscenes, and Dominique Pamplemousse, which uses singing and musical styling to portray all dialogue in the game.   It seems the next game to give this a shot is a …

Pokemon’s “Pallet Town” Jazz Band Cover by Insaneintherainmusic

Holy wow this is awesome. Gone is the quiet town of humble beginnings and in it’s place a massive jazz band celebration. In the comments for this video I saw someone suggesting that this could be the fanfare the player receives after coming home the new Kanto champion. I think that is always how I’m …
