SuperPhillip Central's Favorite VGMs - Thankful for VGMs Edition

For those in the United States, Thanksgiving is this Thursday. We celebrate the massacre of indigenous people by eating lots and lots of food, something that has become our country's new national pastime, replacing baseball.

All snark aside, this week we have more music from SuperPhillip Central's Favorite VGMs, including songs from God of War, Blast Corps, and Ultra Street Fighter IV.

v746. God of War (PS2) - Minotaur Boss Battle

There's nothing like a good choir to accompany some extremely intense orchestral music! That's exactly what you get with God of War's Minotaur Boss Battle, one of the better boss battles in a series known for amazing encounters. The Minotaur is in the latter half of God of War, and the whole battle itself is immensely fun to take the mechanized monstrosity down.

v747. Professor Layton and the Curious Village (DS) - Puzzle

This theme from Professor Layton and the Curious Village accompanies your puzzle companion of sorts, generally playing when trying to solve one of the games 100+ brain teasers and head-scratchers. Is the puzzle trying to trick you? That's always what I think to myself first when dealing with the Professor Layton series' devious puzzles.

v748. Blast Corps (N64) - Tempest City (Angel City)

Blast Corps was a Nintendo 64 game by Rareware which was all about destruction. As one of several vehicles, you needed to clear a path for a truck carrying a nuclear warhead. If the truck crashed into anything, BOOM! Game over. This theme by Graeme Norgate is a rocking tune with plenty of drums to keep a tense beat playing as you desperately try to clear a path!

v749. Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward (3DS, Vita) - Sinisterness

Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward was the sequel to 999 on the Nintendo DS. However, the sequel appeared on the Nintendo 3DS and the PlayStation Vita, opening the way for a whole new audience to try out the series. Sinisterness may sound dorky for a name considering it's not a real word, but the mood it presents to players is certainly the real deal.

v750. Ultra Street Fighter IV (PS3, 360) - Main Menu

Released over the summer, Ultra Street Fighter IV is yet another update to the Street Fighter IV line of games. It's sort of ridiculous how many iterations of Street Fighter IV we've seen already! Regardless, this menu theme for the game is extraordinarily catchy, has a tremendous rhythm to it, and provides players with some great guitar riffs in the process.
