Limbo with Lyrics by Brentalfloss

I couldn’t remember if Limbo had a main theme or any other iconic tune and so I was really curious as to how Brentalfloss was going to make a “Limbo with Lyrics”. His solution was pretty interesting, though it completely undermines the creepiness of this game. I think that may have been the point though. …

The Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra Performs Music from Final Fantasy VI

Perhaps Nobuo Uemastu’s greatest musical work, performed by the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra. It’s truly something to hear and I only wish I could be there to hear the whole thing live. Especially this is only a piece of the symphonic poem called “Born with the Gift of Magic”.

“Stay Away From Me” – A Five Nights at Freddy’s Parody of “Stay With Me” by Nathan Smith

There is a reason why I haven’t talked about Five Nights at Freddy’s, despite thinking that it’s a pretty brilliant game, and that’s because the game terrifies me. I’m not big into horror games and get scared pretty easily which is what has kept me away from games like Amnesia and this game, but if …

Ash Will Make a Mon Out of You With this Mulan Parody

Gosh this captures the feeling of raising a Pokemon perfectly. I actually love all the different kinds of jokes made throughout this animation. I love that Gatomon, a digimon, was disguised as a Pokemon. I love how you don’t have to change much of the original song to get something Pokemon related (“once you find …

Super Mario 3D World’s “World Bowser” Guitar Cover perf. by Epic Game Music

While not one of the more traditionally spooky Mario themes, I fully expect to see a lot of them start popping up now that October has begun.
