Space is the place on this edition of the VGMs. Every song takes place during an outer space level of sorts whether you're soaring through zero gravity, taking out Chaos creatures as Dr. Eggman, or battling an evil alien race. This week we have music from NiGHTS, Super Mario Galaxy, and Star Ocean 3.
v416. NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams - Queen Bella's Ball
'm busy not being able to skip a cutscene, so I'll have to keep this short. This is a twofer on SuperPhillip's Favorite VGMs. It's the normal and hard versions of Queen Bella's Ball from the adequate NiGHTS: Journey of Dreams for Nintendo Wii.
v417. Ristar - Shooting Ristar
The theme of the first world in Ristar, a character that I'd love to see come back somehow. Then again, with how SEGA treats their classic properties: NiGHTS, Samba de Amigo, Super Monkey Ball, perhaps that's for the best!
v418. Super Mario Galaxy - Stardust Road
I'm a huge fan of the piano. I just love the sound of it, so here's a track featuring piano from Super Mario Galaxy's fantastic soundtrack. This poignant space-walking theme plays during the Space Junk Galaxy.
v419. Star Ocean: Till the End of Time - Starless Wavelets
Star Ocean: Till the End of Time gets a lot of undeserved hate towards it. I happened to very much enjoy the game. I don't have the time to play through games that take that long now, but when I did play it I liked most of what there was to offer. Being a fan of action-RPGs helped, too.
v420. Sonic Adventure 2 - Soaring Over the Space... for Cosmic Wall
Whereas Shadow the Hedgehog has Cosmic Fall, Sonic Adventure 2 has Eggman's stage called Cosmic Wall. Sonic Adventure 2 remains one of my favorite 3D Sonics, but I guess that's like having a favorite bout of indigestion. Regardless, I enjoyed all the play styles of the game from the fast-paced Sonic and Shadow levels to the tank-shooter Tails and Eggman sections.
Head back out of orbit long enough to get a breath of fresh air. That does it for this week's favorite VGMs. Tune in next week for another five great pieces of video game music.
