SuperPhillip's Favorite VGMs - A Fine November Day Edition

Welcome to Monday here at SuperPhillip Central. The work week/school week begins, but the VGMs are here to brighten your day! Today we have music from Mega Man 10, Monster Hunter Tri, and Mario Kart: Double Dash!! for starters. Why don't we get to it now?

v601. Mega Man 10 - Abandoned Memory

We kick off the next one-hundred with a track from the Rockman 10 Image Album which is an arranged version of the original 8-bit soundtrack. Our specimen this installment happens to be Abandoned Memory, the theme heard during Dr. Wily's first castle stage. I love it when it kicks in with the guitar riff. Mega Man 10 was much more enjoyable to me than Mega Man 9. Mega Man 9 just had too many cheap points that required the player knowing what was coming. Since when was I Psychicman?

v602. Mario Kart: Double Dash!! - Sherbet Land

Sherbet Land is among my favorite Mario Kart: Double Dash tracks. I love the festive winter theme, the Shy Guys skating on the ice, and the freezies at the end serving as a minefield of sorts. Some other of my favorite Double Dash tracks include Rainbow Road, Mushroom Bridge, Baby Park, Mario Circuit, Dino Dino Jungle, Peach Beach, Dai-- I think I'm listing them all, aren't I? Perhaps I should have listed the ones I didn't like instead!

v603. Dragon Ball: Revenge of King Piccolo - Fierce Battle

This theme from Dragon Ball: Revenge of King Piccolo puts you in the mood for a fight, doesn't it? Like most Dragon Ball or Dragon Ball Z games, the soundtrack is very well composed and catchy. We've already shown off two themes already, so here's a third to further whet your appetite. The game itself is a 2-1/2D beat-em-up with some platforming elements. You can find it for a low price of $19.99 at most retailers. Not a bad deal to jump at, especially for a Dragon Ball fan.

v604. LittleBigPlanet (PSP) - Neopolitan Dreams

LittleBigPlanet for the PlayStation Portable differed from its bigger brother by only have two different planes to run across instead of three. Despite this, the designers really showed how creative they are with the level design. It's just terrific. This theme, Neopolitan Dreams, plays in the very first level of the game. It gets you into the whole Play, Create, and Share mentality. If you own a PSP, do yourself a service to yourself and pick up LittleBigPlanet.

v605. Monster Hunter Tri - Sea and Land Tremble / Ragiakrus

Monster Hunter Tri and Picross 3D have become addictions of mine. I've continually played four hour sessions of the same darned game. Regardless, I'm always making a little progress or else why bother? This theme plays when hunting one of many huge monsters. As an early player, I always associate it with the bird-like creature, Qurupeco. Without the tribal beat, it sounds like something out of a Bond film. The music, not Qurupeco!

We part for now, but stay tuned for more musical magic with more of my patented VGMs! If you're curious as to future or past installments, check out my Youtube channel. Until we meet again, adieu.
