SuperPhillip's Favorite VGMs - April Fools' Edition

No tricks or foolish pranks for you on this belated April Fools edition of the VGMs, just some excellent music from a wide variety of games! This week we have Animal Crossing: City Folk, Columns, The Munchables, Wave Race 64, and We Love Golf to tickle your funny bone! Sit back, relax, and start your week off right with some wondrous VGMs.

v526. Animal Crossing: City Folk - 9 a.m.

I recently got back into Animal Crossing: City Folk, and my town was almost like I left it. Although I had abandoned my townspeople, my townspeople did not abandon me. Instead, they patiently waited for my return. Isn't that sweet? These are two themes for the same time period-- 9 a.m. One is for a clear day while the other is for snow.

v527. Columns - Clotho

Columns is a simple game such as Tetris. Three colored gems in a column formation fall to the ground. The goal is to line up three or more horizontally, vertically, or diagonally to score points. The more points you score, the faster the columns fall. It's a classic SEGA puzzler, Columns also has some non-grating music to go along with it.

v528. The Munchables - 20,000 Leagues of Feast

Life's a beach and then you fry some delectable onion enemies and maybe some orange minions, too. The Munchables was released without warning to no success. Well, I shouldn't say that. It did get a good score here on SuperPhillip Central! That counts for something, right?

v529. Wave Race 64 - Sunset Bay

WAAAAAAVE RAAAAAAACE! That never gets old. Wave Race 64 was an early Nintendo 64 game with lots of tricks, sharp turns to take, and waves to leap from off of. I still can't get over how impressive the water physics were for such an old game. Nintendo can really push their hardware when they want to. The theme here is from the second track of the game, Sunset Bay.

v530. We Love Golf! - Skull Island Short Course

Skull Island is one of three short courses (par 3 courses) in We Love Golf!, a tremendously underrated and overlooked Wii game. It might not have had 1:1 swinging resembling Tiger Woods, but it was awesome anime golf with Capcom costumed characters. I should go back and play a few rounds now that I think about it! Who's with me?
