SuperPhillip's Favorite VGMs - Games and Crap Edition

SuperPhillip's Favorite VGMs are simply my most enjoyable video game music. This week we're kicking things off with a giant mound of poop and ending with a poignant theme from Fire Emblem. Let's get things underway before I make crap jokes.

v371. Conker: Live & Reloaded - Sloprano Swears (Explicit)

Conker: Live & Reloaded is the remake of the rude and crude platformer starring a loose-tongued squirrel and loads of lowbrow humor. Just imagine that Conker used to be so cute and cuddly in Diddy Kong Racing and Conker's starring debut on the Game Boy Color. This track is a symphonic song performed by the Great Mighty Poo, an animated mound of crap... no, I shouldn't do a Rush Limbaugh joke here.

v372. TMNT Tournament Fighters - Bonus Round

This is the SNES version we'll be listening to as usual. We've heard Raphael and Michaelangelo's stages, but now we're going to take a listen to the bonus stage-- box-breaking, safe-smashing fun for all ages! Rhyme not intentional. It's a heavy metal song almost more fitting for the final boss, don't you think?

v373. Klonoa 2: Lunatea's Veil - Joliant (
Great Amusement Park)

Klonoa 2: Lunatea's Veil was an oftentimes overlooked video game in the Playstation 2's daunting library of quality titles. I actually played this one before Door to Phantomile, well, the Wii remake, and even though I prefer the first game, Klonoa 2 wowed me all the same. This is the theme of Joliant, a crazy amusement park full of perilous platforms and dangerous obstacles.

v374. Hot Shots Golf Open Tee 2 - Olive Coast C.C.

Hot Shots Golf Open Tee 2 had six courses from the original Open Tee and six brand new ones. Olive Coast is one of those, a beginner course. Listen to this peppy tune perfect for driving 300 yards with a power shot!

v375. Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon - Fire Emblem Theme

This is the special Super Smash Bros. Brawl version that we're listening to here-- not the original, so sorry if you were expecting something different. Despite owning five (yes, five) Fire Emblem games, my combined playtime is none other than zero hours, zero minutes, and zero seconds. I better get stepping! This piece is a beautiful orchestral song with full choir. It's a very humbling, soothing track.
