It's Chanukah for our Jewish readers, so Happy Chanukah, everybody! As part of the festivities, SuperPhillip Central's gift to you is the gift of song with five special VGMs! Just click the song titles to be whisked away to the song listed!
This week we have music to share from God of War III, a sequel to Golden Sun with Golden Sun: The Lost Age, fantastic music from Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest, a catchy tune from The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask, and finally, we wrap up with some Banjo-Kazooie.
If you'd like to take a look and listen to past VGM volumes, take a gander at the VGM Database. With that out of the way, let's get to the music!
v1021. God of War III (PS4, PS3) - Boss - Poseidon
The beginning of God of War III pulls no punches. It's an absolutely chaotic and epic battle with Poseidon set against the backdrop of all hell breaking loose near Mount Olympus and the titans. This intense orchestral theme plays during the madness, setting up a brilliant battle with Poseidon who winds up on the losing end of Kratos's wrath.
v1022. Golden Sun: The Lost Age (GBA) - Battle - Felix
Whereas Golden Sun was seen in the point of view of Isaac's party, its sequel, Golden Sun: The Lost Age, is seen in the point of view of Felix's party. His battle theme is just as peppy and energized as Isaac's, and it's once again all thanks to the magnificent talent of Motoi Sakuraba, a name that is quite well known to frequenters of SuperPhillip Central's Favorite VGMs!
v1023. Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest (SNES) - Lockjaw's Saga
The underwater levels of the original Donkey Kong Country took place in lakeside, riverside, and ocean side waters. Meanwhile, the underwater levels of Donkey Kong Country 2 take place in the depths of a sunken pirate ship. Some levels feature the piranha Lockjaw while others require the cooling down of the water before it gets to dangerously hot levels. No matter the level, this excellent theme from David Wise plays to keep you enthralled in these particularly waterlogged levels.
v1024. The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask (N64) - Astral Observatory
A place that Link goes to to view the telescope and look into the moon to get its tear, the Astral Observatory is equipped with a lovely theme, as you can obviously here with this link (no pun intended). The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask saw a Nintendo 3DS remake early this year, and it made a great game even greater. Perhaps it'll wind up on SuperPhillip Central's Best of 2015 list?
v1025. Banjo-Kazooie (N64, XBLA) - Mr. Vile's Game
Mr. Vile is a crocodile that lives in a crocodile shaped dome in the middle of Banjo-Kazooie's Bubble Gloop Swamp. To get his Jiggy you need to participate and win against him in a three part mini-game where the goal is to eat the right colored fruit. This catchy mini-game theme plays during all three variants of the mini-game, requiring speed and precision as you gobble up fruit as Banjo and Kazooie's alligator form.
