SuperPhillip Central's Favorite VGMs - Summer Doldrums Edition

We're in the midst of a bare month of games here in North America. There really isn't much (see: anything) to get excited about, at least for us anyway. This week on SuperPhillip Central's weekly Favorite VGMs segment, we come with music from games like Mario Kart Wii, Mega Man 8 and Resident Evil 5. We even go back to the 16-bit era with music from the SNES classic puzzler Tetris Attack. After you've listened to this week's five VGMs, why not pay a visit to our VGM Database?

v411. Mario Kart Wii (Wii) - Credits Part 2

After besting your eleven other racing rivals in all eight cups of Mario Kart Wii, you get a well deserved ceremony and the credits sequence. This uptempo tune is heard during the second half of the credits sequence.

v412. Mega Man 8 (PS1, SAT) - Wily Tower Stage 1

Mega Man 8's first Wily Tower stage has the majority of the gameplay with Mega Man on skis, just like Frost Man's stage. However, this time the challenge is much greater-- as if the challenge wasn't already high in Frost Man's level. The robotic voice telling Mega Man to jump and slide goes perfectly with this music.

v413. Rhythm Thief & the Emperor's Treasure (3DS) - Showtime

The first mission of Rhythm Thief & the Emperor's Treasure, a rhythm game with the story of a Professor Layton game, has Phantom R dancing in from of the Arc de Triomphe in Paris, the setting of the game. Showtime puts players in a hip hop mood as they tap their way to success.

v414. Tetris Attack (SNES) - Water World

Tetris Attack is one of our favorite puzzle games for the Super Nintendo. Sure, we absolutely suck at it, but that's neither here nor there. Panel de Pon has always been a favorite of ours, and it was never better than in Tetris Attack on the SNES.

v415. Resident Evil 5 (PS3, 360, PC) - Rust in Summer 2008

Electronica and club music isn't what you'd normally expect in a Resident Evil game. Well, that is exactly what you get with Resident Evil 5's Rust in Summer 2008. Blast down foes in The Mercenaries as this track keeps a driving beat and peps you up to slay all that stand in your way.
