Music: Top 25 Video Game Fan Remixes: #21- 25

Let’s wrap up my remix picks today! To kick us off, here’s Thailand’s Simon Leong absolutely nailing Dr. Wily’s theme from Mega Man 2. This is an acoustic guitar cover, but it is played with the energy and the tempo of a much heavier instrument choice, and it just clicks. Leong has a lot of…

As of today there are three on tap: one full of arcade titles, one of Castlevania, and one of Contra (with a…

Opinions: Konami seems to be readying some comps…what I want!

UPDATE – Well that was prescient of me. I’ll react appropriately tomorrow. The past month has seen two mysterious ratings appear on worldwide rating board websites; one for Konami’s 50th Anniversary, and another for Castlevania specifically.

Opinions – A Dual Life Perspective, 2018 (Pt. 2)
