SuperPhillip Central's Favorite VGMs - Thankful for Even More VGMs Edition

Thanksgiving is this Thursday, so SuperPhillip Central is delivering a healthy plate full of VGM goodness. We start things off with some timely Killer Instinct: Season One music, and then we go a bit retro for three VGMs with music from Resident Evil, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Arcade Game, and Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers. Finally, we wrap this nutritious and delicious edition up with music from Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance. You can be sure there are no turkeys here!

Check out past VGM volumes with the VGM Database at this link! Now, onto the VGMs for this week!

v1011. Killer Instinct: Season One (XONE) - The Tiger Warrior (Jago Theme)

Let's get tribal to kick things off with this edition of SuperPhillip Central's Favorite VGMs. It makes sense to start off with a track from Killer Instinct's reboot, as that game is two years old now! In fact, with the December update, a new UI and a shadow version of Jago, the subject of this VGM volume, will be released. What a perfect way to welcome both than with this VGM!

v1012. Resident Evil (PS1) - Ending Theme

Smile and say cheese! No, really. This ending theme for the survival horror classic that started it out is pure camp and cheese, much like the acting that the original Resident Evil was packed with. Like one of the YouTube comments says, it really does sound like something that would play at the freeze frame of a 80's movie.

v1013. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Arcade Game (NES) - Scene 2, Part 1

We're going even further back into the past with this NES classic, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Arcade Game. Obviously, the subtitle tells us that this game is a port of the highly popular arcade game, but what it doesn't tell you is that the NES version housed a couple of extra stages not part of the original arcade game. The visuals and sound may be less impressive, but the extra levels more than made up for it.

v1014. Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers (SNES) - City

In the Beat-em-up special edition of SuperPhillip Central's Favorite VGMs, we brought up the Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers movie as one of the games. This time we look at the original Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers game that was more nonlinear in the fact that you got to choose which Power Ranger you wanted to play as, each with his or her own level to go through.

v1015. Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance (GCN) - Against the Black Knight

We finish off this edition of SuperPhillip Central's Favorite VGMs with one of the GameCube's more valuable releases cost-wise. It's Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance, part of a series that is no stranger to SuperPhillip Central's Favorite VGMs. The soundtrack uses synth symphonic sounds to deliver a tense and action-packed soundtrack, such as this theme that plays when going against Path of Radiance's main villain, the Black Knight.
