Resonance: Castle from Yoshi’s Island

Yoshi’s Island is a charming game from the SNES era that I didn’t get the pleasure of playing until not too terribly long ago.  The game’s crayon-like art style and general adorableness pairs well with upbeat music, the likes of which have been stuck in my head thanks to Super Smash Bros long before I…

Resonance: The Abyss

One of my all-time favorite video game series has always been Rayman.  The games are seriously some of the most creative and unique out there, from the lush and intricately detailed locations, bizarre creatures, and amazing soundtrack.  I have actually already discussed the series’ soundtrack twice before (you can find the links at the bottom…

Resonance: Twin Demons

Okami is one of my favorite games of all time thanks to its unique art style, gameplay, and an amazing soundtrack that includes several of my favorite songs of all time.  In the past, I had discussed Wawku Shrine in the snowy land of Kamui.  It is here that Ammy encounters some of her toughest…

Resonance: Wawku Shrine

We’ve already written about the Okami soundtrack three times in the past because it’s just that good.  Today we’ll be discussing one of my absolute favorite songs of all time, Wawku Shrine.  This is the shrine where resides the Twin Demons, two clockwork owls called Lechku and Nechku.  Being one of the final locations in…

Resonance: Ghost House

Super Mario World was the Mario game that I grew up with.  Though it took many years before I was ever able to actually beat it myself, I still looked back on it with (mostly) fond memories, as a symbol of my childhood, alongside such classics as Donkey Kong Country and The Legend of Zelda:…

Resonance: Greenpath

Music is a vital part of any gaming experience, as vital as the characters, story, and gameplay.  For me, and assuredly so many others, a game’s soundtrack can act as an emotional link between the player and the game, making a fictional world feel so much more real and alive.  While plenty of games are…

Resonance: Astral Observatory

Out of all the games I’ve played, no game connects with me emotionally quite like Majora’s Mask.  My first exposure to the game was the short-lived playthrough Mother Duck started on our brand new Nintendo 64.  She only completed the beginning of the game, up until you get your ocarina back from Skull Kid.  Intimidated…

Revisiting Nier: Automata

You know, it’s actually kind of crazy to me that’s already been about two whole years since I was first introduced to Nier: Automata. It’s been on my replay list ever since I finished it the first time, and I kind of can’t believe I wasn’t able to work my way back around to it…

Favorite Nintendo Music: Song of Storms

When I tried to decide on my favorite Nintendo song, I came up with a long list of examples spanning various decades and countless games.  There are, in fact, dozens and dozens of songs from Nintendo that I really enjoy, leading me to realize that I might need to look at things from a different…

Favorite Nintendo Music: Rundas Battle

Hey all! Our Nintendo celebration continues this week with a look back at our absolute favorites pieces of Nintendo music. With literal decades-worth of music to choose from, picking exactly one track wasn’t exactly an easy decision to make. However, it wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be; all it took…
