Time for an all-Wii edition of my favorite VGMs! Each and every of these five VGMs is a game from the Wii's lineup. Some call the Wii the worst console ever made. These people are loser manchildren who need coddling 24/7. If you can hear these VGMs over their constant crying, then maybe you'll have something to enjoy for the start of your hectic week. This week we'll be listening to music from Super Mario Galaxy 2, Kirby's Epic Yarn, and Wario Land: Shake It!
v751. Wario Land: Shake It! - Mt. Lava Lava
Mt. Lava Lava in the underrated Wario Land: Shake It! for Nintendo Wii was a place full of rolling boulders, flowing lava, and promiscuously-placed enemies. The song itself has a funk beat to it which makes you want to get up and dance. Go ahead. No one's looking. Act like my main man, Wario, and shake your butt in the air like you're directing traffic. Aw, yeah...
v752. Wii Sports - Tennis Results
Tennis was but one of the five sports available in the phenomenal, ground-breaking Nintendo Wii launch pack-in title, Wii Sports. The other sports included bowling, golf, boxing, and baseball. Tennis featured your Mii automatically running while all the player needed to do was swing the Wii remote. It was a fun and accessible way to allow non-gamers into the fold. The results theme for tennis is very relaxing and quite soothing, don't you think?
v753. Super Mario Galaxy 2 - Puzzle Plank Galaxy
Super Mario Galaxy 2 was SuperPhillip Central's Game of the Year of last year, and it faced some stiff competition. Never before did I play a game with such a smile on my face. From the colorful visual style to the whimsical nature of the game to the phenomenal level design to the excellently-composed music, Super Mario Galaxy 2 proves that gameplay outshines all.
v754. Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz - Sinking Swamp
Super Monkey Ball: Banana Blitz, for better or for worse, introduced a jump mechanic into the series. This made levels more complex and tricky to navigate. There were ten worlds in Banana Blitz, and the ninth and tenth were unlocked by completing worlds 1-8 without using a continue. Sinking Swamp was the ninth world, a world I never got to experience as my Monkey-fu wasn't up to snuff.
v755. Kirby's Epic Yarn - Mole Hole
Mole Hole in Kirby's Epic Yarn for Nintendo Wii was a vertical stage where Kirby transformed into a mole to burrow his cute little way from top to bottom, discovering treasures and gathering beads along the way. Kirby's Epic Yarn was originally a game completely separate from Kirby. The character was inserted in to increase the appeal of the game. While this trick worked, would you have liked to have seen a new IP from Nintendo? Not to say they haven't come up with any this generation! Don't get me wrong!
Wii've reached the conclusion of another wiik here at SuperPhillip's Favorite VGMs. Enough Wii puns though. Those kill angels! Until next week, we put the VGMs on cruise control. If you're interested in hearing past and future VGMs along with a smorgasbord of other sounds, check out my Youtube channel. See ya'!
