SuperPhillip's Favorite VGMs - March to the Music Edition

Welcome to a glorious day here in Central City as the favorite VGMs and I celebrate with some new songs to share. This week we have music from Tatsunoko VS. Capcom, The Sky Crawlers, and Starfox Adventures to name a few. Get primed and ready because here they come!

v506. Tatsunoko VS. Capcom: Ultimate All-Stars - Orbital Ring Systems Cargo Bay

Tatsunoko VS. Capcom is the first real fighter (sorry, Smash Bros.) that I've enjoyed in a long, long time. It's a great, fast-paced game that any fan of anime or Capcom will love. Orbital Ring features some trance-like music to it which I truly like. While the character themes from the Japanese version aren't present, these new Western themes are quite acceptable, too.

v507. The Sky Crawlers: Innocent Aces - BGM 05

Ripped by a nice user on the Final Fantasy Shrine forums, The Sky Crawlers: Innocent Aces soundtrack is full of memorable melodies and catchy tunes. This theme, first heard in mission 03, is but one of such songs. If you have an extra thirty dollars burning a hole in your pocket and own a Wii, why not check out this intriguing game?

v508. Sly 2: Band of Thieves - Rajan's Palace

Rajan's Palace is the second overworld of eight in Sly 2: Band of Thieves. It's set in India, so it has a foreboding, mysterious feel to it. It's something most people can lay back and relax to. Sly 2 changed things up by being more sandbox, mission-based than the original Sly Cooper. It's still a great game to play for any PS2 platformer fan.

v509. Starfox Adventures - Ending Credits

This credits sequence is divided up into three parts. The first is the traditional Starfox melody, the second chimes in with a cool rock guitar section, and the final part is played by a sultry saxophone. David Wise helped compose the soundtrack, and it would be one of his last mainline Rare games before leaving the company for other ventures.

v510. Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie - Ivan Ooze

I remember going to see the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers movie back in the day. My older brother sat in the back, embarrassed having to see the movie. I also remember renting the game, and being very overjoyed. Who knows if the game still holds up today? The theme I've chosen this time is for the final boss, Ivan Ooze. It's quite catchy, don't you think?

That's all she wrote on this edition of SuperPhillip's Favorite VGMs. Until next week, we bid you adieu!
