SuperPhillip's Favorite VGMs - Endless Golf, LocoRoco, and Pokemon Edition

Can you believe we're starting another brand-new week here at SuperPhillip Central? I know! Neither can I! This week, we have in store for you Endless Ocean: Blue World, Mario Golf, and Pokemon Snap to name a few. If you'd like to look and listen to past editions of the VGMs, just type SuperPhillip's Favorite VGMs in the search bar. That's located at the top left corner of each page.

v551. Endless Ocean: Blue World - The Last Rose of Summer

This poignant Celtic woman theme comes from Endless Ocean: Blue World. I missed out on the original Endless Ocean, and now the game is worth sixty bucks sealed. I immediately salvaged a copy of the sequel, and it's quite an enjoyable experience. There's lots to do, lots to see, and lots to accomplish. It will take upwards of one-hundred hours!

v552. LocoRoco 2 - dadhi dado da

The lovable LocoRoco have leaped their way back onto my favorite VGMs list. This song is awkwardly titled dadhi dado da which means anything you want it to. Yes, even expletives if you so desire. The song really kicks in halfway when the LocoRoco start singing along in chorus to the theme. It fills my heart with love.

v553. Mario Golf - Mini Golf

Mini golf in Mario Golf was an intriguing experience. Each hole was a letter of the American alphabet with twists here and there such as water hazards and the like. Next to Hot Shots Golf Fore, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10, and We Love Golf, Mario Golf remains one of my favorite golf games of all time. Quite a hallmark, don't you think?

v554. Hot Shots Golf 3 - Opening Theme

Let's go back to the fairway, shall we? This time, however, we're swinging it to Hot Shots Golf 3 for the PlayStation 2. A great game filled with wacky golfers, witty lines, and well-designed golf courses. While not my favorite in the series, that goes to Fore, Hot Shots Golf 3 did bring with it some charm and good times. This is the opening theme of the game.

v555. Pokemon Snap - Rainbow Cloud

This is the final of seven courses in Pokemon Snap. The objective? Easy enough, right? Take a perfect photo of the ever-elusive Mew. Pokemon Snap was an awesome game allowing players to take their game cartridge to selected Blockbuster locations and print off stickers of their photos. I remember taking my copy down in middle school, and doing just that! Thanks, Blockbuster!

That is all she wrote for this week's edition of SuperPhillip's Favorite VGMs. I hope you'll look forward to next week when we have MadWorld, Punch-Out!, and Pokemon HeartGold and SoulSilver!
