SuperPhillip's Favorite VGMs - Marching Into A New Month Edition

Marvel VS. Capcom 3 is out now, but at the time I uploaded the video, it was not. Regardless, it's a new week here on SuperPhillip Central, so it's time to reach back into my bag of VGMs to share with the world. This week we have music from Pokemon Stadium, Super Princess Peach, and Mega Man Legends.

v671. Marvel VS. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds - Theme of Arthur (Haunted Graveyard)

Sir Arthur was an interesting inclusion to the cast of Capcom characters in the upcoming crowd-pleaser, Marvel VS. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds for both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. There's even rumor of a Nintendo 3DS release. I'd be down for that. Take my money, Capcom, I dare you. Anyway, Sir Arthur comes from the bone-crushingly difficult, Ghost 'N Goblins series of games. Even in Marvel VS. Capcom 3, when damaged enough, his heart-covered underpants will show. How's THAT for detail and fan-service? The song heard is a rock guitar version of the Ghost 'N Goblins main theme-- at least the theme most associated with the Ghost 'N Goblins series.

v672. Pokemon Stadium - Pokemon Victory Poses and Cup Presentation

Pokemon Stadium (forgive the lack of accent marks) used the transfer pak to transfer over Pokemon from all three original Pokemon games, Blue, Red, and Yellow. It was awesome seeing the Pokemon you raised in full 3D. In fact, Nintendo would essentially use the same models all the way through to Pokemon Battle Revolution. That was a troll, mind you. Regardless, this theme plays as you complete a given cup or the Gym Leader's Castle mode. You'd get a trophy featuring your Pokemon team in all of their glory. Were you a bad enough dude to collect all 151 Pokemon trophies?

v673. Super Princess Peach - Tag the Flowers!

This theme was requested, and I was also wanting to put it up, so here we are. Tag the Flowers! only plays once throughout the entire game, and it's played in the first world during a flower puzzle. It's a simple memorization puzzle where you have to match the colors of the flowers with the previous screen. There's some Cuban flavor to this theme as with most of Super Princess Peach's soundtrack. I only hope I didn't make the requester wait too long on this one!

v674. Star Ocean: Till the End of Time - Confidence in the Domination

I really enjoyed the third Star Ocean game. It was a breeze once I outfitted my characters with impenetrable synthed armor and weapons! This theme, "Confidence in the Domination", is but one of the many optional boss songs in the game, and there's a lot of them. What is your opinion on Star Ocean: Till the End of Time? What did you think about the game's infamous twist near the end of the game? For me, it didn't really bother me. I don't think it ruined the universe whatsoever. That's just me though. What do you think?

v675. Mega Man Legends - Ending Theme

The ending theme of Mega Man Legends, an excellent 3D romp to itself, features mixed in voice work from the various character lines in the game. Tiesel Bonne probably has the most hilarious ones in the batch. They're not randomly thrown in, mind you. They're placed to fit with the beat of the music. Mega Man Legends was a fun game even if I thought it'd be a traditional eight Robot Master game when it was originally announced. Who didn't love kicking Reaverbot butt? I never did and probably never will get the chance to play the sequel as it is quite rare. Perhaps one of you could sell it to me on the DL?

Next week, Donkey Kong Country Returns, Star Fox 64, and Sonic Colors are a few of the headliners in store for next week. If you're interested in more musical goodness, check out my Youtube channel, SuperPhillip32! See you next week, everybody!
